Dynobike EFI Management System
Harley Fuel Injection
Wouldn't it be great if you didn't need a computer or be electronically minded and you could adjust your injection system to suit with just one screw driver in a simple format that related to a carburetor. A format that didn't interfere with the standard computer system installed on your bike.
A system that has an idle and low speed circuit (pilot jet\mixture screw), mid range and throttle response circuit for acceleration (needle and slide) and a main circuit for wide open throttle and power (main jet) one that could dial out that annoying backfire when slowing down and the constant surging when cruising the highway, and that big flat spot when you get aggressive with the throttle. But most of all have it all at an affordable price without running the bike on a dyno for 2-3 hours, putting pressure on your hip pocket to say the least.
Well the good news is you can have it all right now right here. The person responsible for this technology is Mark Dobeck, founder of Dynojet. The man behind carburetor jet kits and the designer of Dynojet dyno’s, setting new standards of measuring and tuning motorcycles around the world, being adopted by many very successful race teams.
The system uses all the lessons learnt on carburetors,
this knowledge has been adapted to fuel injection in simple to understand
terms for the person who is more apt with tuning carburetors than fuel
injected bikes. And guess what, it works and is affordable
As with carbureted motorcycles its designed around the principle that the manufacturers have spent a lot of time and money perfecting the fuel maps which are generally very good. So the only issue is with ADR compliance and therefore if anything they are prone to be running lean low down and in the midrange to comply.
Not dangerously so but enough for the rider to notice an improvement straight away when more fuel is delivered to compensate. For example in many cases the bike will surge when cruising the highways and often have a rough idle and harsh feel, sometimes even stalling.
This is because they are lean in this area to meet the ADR regulations. Making them richer not only gets rid of the hesitation but makes for a much smoother ride and a noticeable improvement in throttle response and midrange.
Dobeck has found that in most cases the manufacturer has
got it right when the throttle is 75-100% open and no change in fuel delivery
is required, assuming the bike is still relatively standard. I have personally
found this to be my own experience.
Even the manufacturers are aware of acceleration horse power which when looked at on a load style dyno shows up as a rich mixture and tuners will then unknowingly remove it. The bike still runs fine but won't accelerate as fast and as hard as a result.
Many tuners when using a dyno will select a high gear, 4th being the accepted standard. The only problem with this is that a bike will accelerate harder in a low gear than in a high gear and the fuel requirements are different. This system is able to take that into account and adjust the fuel delivery accordingly.
Yep hard to believe that this can all be had at an affordable price, fitted by you and tuned with nothing more than one screw driver. Well I'm here to say “the good old days are back”, I have used it on many different model bikes from BMW to the latest R1 and can confirm that on my own bike the difference is real and it does do what the manufacturer say it will.
Going back to the air fuel curves for a moment you will see that it's not at 13:1 air fuel ratio all the way across. That fuel number is only a guide to aim for. We have carried out tests adding and removing as much as 10% fuel from the entire map and it has made no difference whatsoever.
The point is, it's in the zone, to keep working at trying to get a perfectly straight line is not only pointless in terms of power and riding improvements but also means more wear and tear on your motorcycle.
On the road there was also a noticeable improvement, the bike was more responsive going from cruise to aggressive acceleration and pulled harder. Also the harshness at 7-9000 rpm had disappeared while the backfire on over run was all but gone.
