Are you sure your name isn't Kenny....but is "Jerry" ?? LOL
Guess you just had a crappy ATV. Every FI bike I've had startred first time, every time be it 90 degrees out or 9.
And in case you missed it, you can buy little control boxes that plug into that "computer" that allow you pick your fuel air mixture for EVERY rpm. Want it a bit richer from 1263 RPMs to 1397 RPMs? Not a problem.
The real cool part of FI now is you can have a choice by a flick of the button whether you want to get the best gas mileage while touring or get the most power while carving up twisties.
It also makes things like traction control and cruise control alot cheaper to install.
Fuk carbs. Keep them if you want, but keep them away from me....
Who is Jerry?
I do not mind FI on cars, but for small engines man I love the carbs. Maybe I am weird but all traction control does is make it easier for people who do not know how to drive, give me standard non abs braking and no traction control any day. I did tests on this and I proved I can stop faster in snow then the abs can....smart computer is only as good as the inputs and the ABS on cars is made to let the user stay in control not stop faster. Traction control - is that the thing that cuts the fuel when there is snow on the road and you start spinning, another stupid idea, how are the tires going to self clean with no spinning to eject frozen slush / mud.
Anyway.... I tweaked my bike to have as much power as I could squeeze out of it, I did it with jets and A/F adjustments. needle shims. The guy at the dyno shop asked who did the work, when I said me he was flabbergasted on how dead on I got it.
Knife actually my ATV has an aftermarket control box, been there done that and I am STILL tweaking it, it seems to load up too much when cold, chugs when it does start and if I nail the throttle it stalls, maybe still too lean on fast throttle advance.
You seem to claim to know all about this stuff about FI, you got a few minutes to check my settings?
I would be happy to let you look at them and I can tell you what the ATV is doing.
The atv is not crappy, With the stock ECU I can start it with throttle input, but when cold if I did not let it warm up for like 10 minutes it would not go... it would stall.
So because of those problems with the stock ECU I got an after market one with a different injector, actually the same injector on the M109R...
Anyway if you are interested in helping out that would be great... let me know here is a link to my settings that work well for warmer weather > 50F outside.
I dont want this thread to become about my ATV so I will make a new thread
Dariv, you too can look at those ATV settings and let me know what you think, I appreciate the help from you FI experts... like I said carb issues, no problem FI - urg... not my cup o tea.
thank you guys, Kenny
