Fuel Injection

Has anyone ever swaped out the carbs for the fuel injection setup. How did it work out? Is there any fuel mileage benifets? Do you need to add a computer to your bike?

I'm not nearly as knowledgeable as others here but I have not heard of any fuel injection setup for this bike.

The VN750 was not computerized so it would be about like re-engineering the bike just to put fuel injection on it.

there is a way to turn your cv carbs into fuel injected throttle bodies. The kit is available from the same place I bought my r/r www.roadstercycle.com look down the menu for the cv to tbi kit and read the instructions. the reason I didnt do this is the fuel pump and regulator and the cost but it in theory could be done, with a little work and a lot of money.

JMHO, but if you want fuel injection, it is more cost effective to go for a newer bigger ride.

X2.

If someone has that kind of money to throw at an older bike might as well get a newer one with Fi.

Although this isn't true fuel injection, it's about as close as you'll find within reason. If done right, will make a big difference in power. I installed this on my bike, mainly because of jetting problems with the extreme variations in altitude here (4K - 11k feet!) but will work at any altitude. It's called Intela-Jet. It's simple to install but not necessarily easy. Cost me about $260 (w/shipping) to do it myself. No computer needed. No air induction changes needed! It's an upgraded version of "Dial-A-Jet".

I absolutely love the thing! I can adjust my jetting simply by turning a knob while riding! How cool is that? Anyway, it might be worth looking into. If you want more infor on it, talk to Lon at Thunder Products.

Does anybody really care?

I have read about the Dial-A-Jet before, but will have to read about this Intela-Jet upgrade.
It seems a reasonable price if it works as you say it does.
I don`t have any problem with elevation changes out here on the prairies, but it might be helpful if/when I get a chance to ride through the Rockies in BC.
Thanks for the link.

I'm looking into getting an intelajet for my VN750. Just a little curious about the install on our bikes. were you able to do a direct connect, or did you have to drill into the bowl? Anything else worthy of note about the install?
