So, a couple of weeks ago, I decided to do a fuel controller install so I could run a set of short pipes (the pipes have baffles for added quietness
and backpressure, so I don’t burn up exhaust valves and so on, the fuel controller ensured the engine would not run lean, and thereby prevent the valves from burning up, which would have happened if I had run the K&N air filter and the low-restriction exhaust on the stock fuel mapping).
So, here we go!
Step 1: Pull off tank and disconnect connectors and fuel line.
Yep, this little brown one was a pain.
Set the fuel tank on the ground near the bike, tilted up, so I could keep the fuel in the tank instead of all over the ground.
Step 2: Disconnect electrical connectors and vacuum hoses from the intake sensors:
Unscrewed the screws for the air box and also got the little pain in the ass hose clamp screw from behind the airbox mount:
And these were a little annoying to get to:
Disconnected another vacuum line from the intake boot:
And...the boot’s removed!
Next, reach fingers down as far as I can stretch them and get the electrical connectors for the injectors:
Now to connect the fuel controller connections:
The one behind the coolant cap is kind of a pain to get to:
And connect the plugs again...
Connect the ground wire to a spot where it won’t melt:
Button it all up in reverse order and there ya go!
She might not look the best, but she’s got it where it counts. She’s a work in progress at the moment. Plans are to get the paint cleaned up and go from there.
Much easier doing the fuel controller on the Suzuki M50 than it was to do the jet kit on a Kawasaki ZRX I dearly miss:
The carburetor bank comes out as a set, and goes in as a set. Woof!
