Fuel System 1 Day Workshop: Fuel Injection
 
Course Hours: 12pm - 6pm
 
Dates: TBA
Cost: Tuition: $85

 

There was a time when dinosaurs ruled the earth and now they don't. The same epitaph is now being inscribed for the venerable carburetor aka as the carb.

In its place is what some text books call an engine management system aka as fuel injection. The carburetor was a product of the industrial revolution, fuel injection is the product of the information age and electronic revolution. Is it better some would argue yes as it takes some of the uncertainty of whether your bike will start or run properly on a day by day basis. Especially if you are not devout on your maintenance program.

But fuel injection was mainly invented to meet the needs for a greener earth as it pollutes less than a carburetor which was probably invented before the word pollute was coined. It is a more complex system with a computer, sensors and injectors that form a network that encompasses your engine.

This additional complexity can sometimes go awry and leave you stranded and calling for a tow. Most of the time the problems are self inflicted and the warning signs were there for week before the impending failure but were ignored because you just did know. Well with the work shop you can now have a complete understanding of how this complex architecture works in easy to understand bits of data. Even the most complex organism is completely understandable once you slice it and dice it down to its fundamentals, which are really quite simple.

This workshop walks you through how this system is organized and linked by components. You will learn what each component does and what the symptoms are when it begins to fail. You will learn diagnostic procedures with this understanding that will help you find faults with the system. You will learn preventative maintenance and how to avoid destructive behavior that can reduce the reliability of you fuel injection system.
