AT with FI

Call me an old school geezer but I fail to see why would anyone want to adapt a FI system to the AT engine... what's the point?

On a different side to the same note, wouldn't it be easier to fit the TA700 engine complete to the AT's frame?

The mounts would be easier to adpat, wouldn't they?

I guess it comes down to preference.

I like FI for:
- No longer having to mess with a carbs (no more cleaning, no more ripped diaphragms or changing carb gaskets)
- Having no more choke (and so also no more possibility of a sticking choke)
- Easy tunability, without having to remove components.
- AND best for last, Perfect self tuning for high elevation or every kind of elevation.

I also regard FI systems as actually simpleler as carbs.

Hi dennism,

Thanks for your feedback.
I'm starting a rough journey into the depth of the injection system.
Many hours of reading is waiting for me.

Hi there Africa_twin,

The TA700 engine is something different from the AT engine.
One of my friend ones said that the TA goes vvvvvvrrrrrrrrrr and the AT goes gggggggrrrrrrrrrr...

Everything A-Wind mentioned is correct. the carb feeding is old. better fuel/air mixture, all the time, means better fuel consumption, better throttle response.
Besides, one of my carbs shows wear signs in the float hinge.

I know Carbs are old school but so am I.
I am getting around 400 km per AT tank... working for the manufacturer for the last 23 years, I've ridden the TA 700 a few times and I don't remember ever getting that sort of mileage... I am not a fast rider, more like a "watch-the-scenery" type of rider...

It's been awhile between posts but thought I'd put up a few pics of the AT out and about down under recently. It's technically Autumn (Fall) here but the WX hasn't been too bad with some 20 C + (70 F) days so getting rides in before maybe officially hunkering down for winter after the Brass Monkey Rally. Any XRV's going?

Always great to see all the AT's out there. Nice bike La Case!

Out in the Korowai grasslands.
