  • fuelie motor to carb motor differences

    Has anyone used a fuel injected motor in a carbed bike? I think the motors themselves should be the same , but wanted to know more. There is a fuelie motor available locally and I thought it might make a good spare for my 07 carbed bike with 99000 miles on it. thanks

    you would need "ALL" the electronics that go with the FI bike and you would have to install o2 sensors in your exhaust. Then you would need a FI bike fuel tank with the high pressure fuel pump in it. But for a spare I do believe you could install a set of carbed 1700 heads, manifold and carb on the FI engine and it would work fine but back to a carbed setup. 99000 miles is only about 1/2 life for these bikes if properly maintained so that engine may never be used.

      thanks . I knew about the electronics and pump but was going to stay carbed. Are the heads different on the FI? I thought the difference would have been in the manifolds.

      Yes the heads are different at the intake ports

    These bikes are cheap to buy used.... No sense in buying a motor "in case".... Run yours till she blows (most likely never will)... The. Pick up another used one for $2k-4k

      It's relatively cheap and low mile. Could also make a cool upgrade for the snowblower.

      I like the idea of putting a motor on a go kart. Live life to the fullest.
