My '05 is well sorted and taken care of but the FI 990 was so instant and crisp if felt like more power all the way through the rpm range. This was before the days of the CPR filter as well. I'm sure that will boost the power of a 990.

This will be one sweet build. For a bike that will see most of its miles in Baja I cant think of a better machine out there!! Can't wait for you to share the write up.

Good luck with the build, sounds like fun. Personally, I prefer carbs over FI.

I think I'm the only one on here that's actually tried all three on the SER: CV's, FCR's and fuel injection... and I can say without exception that FI is an enormous step up from either of the carb solutions. Responsiveness is the biggest performance gain, but ease of starting and increased power are also significant. As for fuel mileage, any changes are insignificant...

I am excited to go FI and I know responsiveness is the best gain. Mileage is not to big of a concern of mine, maybe just a little added bonus. I know carbs are tried and true but think the FI is superior after they sorted it out in 09. Still waiting on everything to arrive and doing research at the moment. Biggest thing on my mind right now is the external fuel pump/ filter/ FPR setup. If anyone has suggestions let me know but for now looking at the Cannondale FI pump and Walbro setup as others listed. My SE is my favorite bike I have ever owned and I want to make it the best it can be. It has many many great modifications and this is the next step in it's evolution.

Still waiting on the engine, should be here tomorrow or tuesday. I did get the harness, headers, throttle bodies, airbox and so on. Also been doing a ton of research as far as the external fuel pump and FPR and think I have figured out the direction I am going on that. The wiring harness is the other big obstacle on the build. I have a service manual which has a wiring diagram but have been trying to find a routing diagram. The issues I foresee is the different locations between the SE and ADV of the battery and fuse block. Just thought I'd share the updates I have so far. Braaap!

Thanks for the updates... I think I speak for many; we all enjoy learning through others builds, modifications, etc.
Looking forward to more updates.

Yep, I questioned the reason/need for this swap but I too will be watching with interest.

I love it when a guy does a mod just because he wants to do a mod. No reason necessary.

You know I support this effort 100%. Hope this picture helps... this is a harness off a 2010 Adventure 990. All the stuff on the left is what you don't need. What's left on the right is all that's necessary to build your bike...

Ken thanks as always for the help. I was talking to ken from advmachines on the phone yesterday and that was his idea was to take what's needed from the adv harness and use it in conjunction with the SE harness. My plan is to use a cannondale pump and FPR housing with the euro spec 3.5 bar FPR in it. One constraint of this project is it needs to be done and tested before I head to Baja again in April. I'll keep on posting progress but as of now waiting for some parts still and it looks like tearing into it will start next week.

Honestly, I didn't use any of the SER harness. It will just hold you back...

Hey Ken (PowerCell).. great pictures! I just noticed your SE990R signature.
I assume somewhere on the site you've posted more about this mod?

I think you should convert it to an 1190
