I knew it had to happen. Some idiot is trying to install FI on a carbureted Goldwing 1500 on one of the GW forums. Been at it for months now. The twin carb setup on the 1500 has proven far more reliable than the FI on the 1800, so I don't know what his reason is.
I added up the cost of all the fuel injection specific parts on a 2009 Vulcan 900 Classic, and they came to almost $1800. $550 for the ECU alone, which is far less reliable than the stock R/R on the 750, another $320 for the electric fuel pump, which the 750 doesn't even have. If you want FI, buy one of those, but put a stack of money aside for repairs.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
