    How would that be any better, less costly or more reliable than the options out there now?

    Sorry if it felt it was pointed at you, it wasn’t. Seriously.

    So as far as an update... I have none. Broke down right before we went to Mexico, and now our family is back. It's still on the trailer in the garage. When I look into the tank I can clearly see the liner is pulling away from the sides of the tank. So now my question... Should I remove the tank? With this fuel injection there is much more to it than a couple bolts and turning the petcock to off and disconnecting the fuel line... does that electric harness that feeds the fuel pump have a plug? Thx

    What benefit do you get from a fuel injected bike? Just seems like a PITA! Not trying to piss anyone off, just wondering.:)

    If designed correctly, better gas mileage and a smoother running motor, almost everything these days are EFI, even chain saws, they adjust for air temp and altitude for efficiency.
    Carbs EFI
    Winter Drivability: Poor Excellent
    Summer Drivebility: Excellent Excellent
    Skill Level Required: Average Advanced
    Initial Cost: $200+ $1000 (typical)
    Long-term cost: High Manageable
    Performance: Good Better
    Turbo-compatible: Poor Excellent
    Supercharger-compatible: Depends Excellent
    N2O-compatible: Good Good
    Emissions Friendly: Poor Excellent
    "Wow" Factor: Fair Excellent
    Reliability: Good Excellent
    Fuel Distribution: Fair Excellent (Port and Direct)
    Intake Configurations: Limited Unlimited (Port and Direct)

    Yea, that's all great but just seems to me that the guys with the EFI bikes have more issues than the guys without it, thanks for the info bro! :)

    I did not read all but did you check fuel pressure at valve. first thing everybody should get with these bike is a shop manual. It will help a lot, you need fuel, spark and compression for engine to run, mostly likely NOT a compression problem,

    May want to see about getting your tank re aligned. I have a hunch that the liner is breaking up and clogging your fuel. That would explain your symptoms. You should also clean out all your lines and may want to blow compressed air through them to get any debris out. The plug should have a jst connection somewhere in your wiring harness.

    It’s my understanding there is a fuel filter in there too. Hopefully it worked , filled up, and kept the crap out of the rest of the system

    Like I said, if designed correctly. The only ones that you hear about on the forum are the guys that have a problem. What ya don't hear is hey I have a Bulldog EFI and it runs great:old2:
    When did they start switching over to EFI in cars, late 80's early 90's.
