If somebody wanted to do the same thing on a DR650 they could use the head off a European XF650 Freewind as it has dual inlets as well.

Just saying... Would be nice if somebody was the test rabbit so I can just copy the final working result.

Update

I finally got time to modify the TB's. It was quite simple, removed the hoses, fuel rail ++ and the two long bolts through the four separate TB's. I mounted the outer ones together with shorter bolts, cut and welded the fuel rail and then they look like this: PICTURES

Also added some pictures of the fuel pump.

Hope to connect the pump and TB to test for leaks during the weekend.

I have some trouble getting a correct RPM reading from the VR sensor on the bike, but got a few tips today so I hope it will be sorted pretty soon.

I was considering doing this on my elefant. I read something about a guy that used a microsquirt to replace the computer on his 1150gs. He had it setup so he could change his fuel tables and such with his palm pilot.

Some of the DIY fuel injection systems I have looked into(For a hotrod project) have a self learn function. You put in some generic fuel tables and it will correct them when in the tune setting. I ended up getting a link 4 system but have had to put it on the back burner untill I get some more time.

Very cool, please keep us updated.

Signals and sensors working

Last night I tested the sensors and fixed the rpm signal problem. The RPM on the MS was twice that of the tacho on the bike. Changing the settings in Tunerstudio to 2 cylinders with simultaneous 1 squirt solved it.

A couple of PICTURES.

Sensors mounted on the bike

Good progress this weekend. Got all the sensors mounted on the bike and it all seem to be working Very little space left, but should be enough for the airfilters and fuel lines. Seems like I have to wait another week for the intakes and the oil-temp adapter...too bad since the rest is more or less ready for a test-start.

PICTURES (taken with mobile phone so not the best quality)

mousitsas: The Motty tuner is interesting, nice product. But I think it might be more like a Powercommander, for tuning a bike with stock fuelinjection. I don't think it can control the fuelpump or ignition as the Microsquirt can (correct me if I'm wrong).

Thank you all for the comments and interest in the project. It gives good motivation to get things done

Glad you are making progress with this! I bet the cold winters up North help quite a bit in getting things done.


I'll start looking for a cheap twin inlet Freewind head for my 650 then!

Thanks!

Yes, it's usualy the choice of go skiing or stay home in the workshop Until now there has not been enough snow here in the eastern parts so I've spent a lot more time with the bike than I had planned.

There has been some head-scratching but owerall I'm a bit surprised that the Microsquirt system has been almost plug and play so far. I'm sure that may change when the tuning begins Also the info in the megamanual and the mega/microsquirt forum has been very good and helpful.

Just start looking, I think the Freewind head + injection would be a very cool mod to the 650. Do you know if the valve sizes are different in the Freewind head?

Got the intakes and the oiltemp-adapter last week. After a few "adjustments" everything seems to be ok. I've also pressure tested the fuelsystem and it worked fine without any leaks.

The remaining things to do before trying to start the bike is welding on a fitting for the return fuel hose and going through the settings in Tunerstudio one more time. Should be plenty of time for that next weekend

I forgot the camera so no pictures this time, will add some later.

Ambraa,
What AFR are you going to target for your tuning?

Hi mousitsas,
I will use the recommended values from the megamanual. Somwhere between 12.5 and 13 for high load and 15.5-16 for cruising. I'm hoping that the vacuum signal would be ok for a alpha-n/MAP blend. I believe that would be easier and quicker to tune with the butt-dyno
