throttle body questions
I am V-Curious but not about the entire bike... A fuel injection conversion project that I'm working on needs some throttle bodies and injector assemblies. One of my buddies who owns a V-Strom 1000 suggested I check out 1000 and 650cc throttle body assemblies. From the info I've been able to get online and from EBay sellers (not much!) it seems that one of these throttle bodies will work for me.
Does anyone have a pair of throttle bodies laying around (or know a truly definitive source) and could tell me the inner diameter of the throttle body intakes and the outer diameter of where the throttle body mates to the engine? I've found several conflicting numbers for both sizes of engine online.
Also if someone could point me to any info on the injector sizing between the 1000 and 650, that'd be nice, too :-)
For those curious, I am converting a Honda Pacific Coast to FI. I'll be using a MegaSquirt I for FI control. Just think! A tupperwear dandy with the heart of a V-Strom!
In between bikes. Help me find the right one!
