Question about injector behavior at while cranking and fuel pressure

As part of a winter project to finally work the last bugs out of my SMC, I spent the evening setting up a couple of tests of the fuel system. The results lead to a couple of questions. I have the Vortex installed, so keep that in mind.

1. I'm having cold start trouble. Easy thing to do was pull the injector and take a look. I aimed the injector into a cup and cranked the bike over to see if I had spray pattern problems or dribbling. The pattern, to my eye, looked great. But I was surprised to see that the injector fires only one time during the cranking cycle, right at the first intake stroke, and not again. This would explain why no amount of cranking will do the trick if it doesn't catch the first time. Does anyone know how the stock ECU handles the startup?


2. I checked the fuel pressure, it's great. The prime immediately spikes the gauge up to, dunno, 53psi I think. The moment the prime cycle stops, the pressure bleeds down over a couple of seconds to something closer to 20psi. I don't know how the regulator works, so I don't know if that's normal or not. When I installed the current fuel pump, I'll admit that I thought the quick disconnect fitting in the tank just ahead of the regulator didn't seem as snug as I'd like, but I could be imagining things. If the line pressure isn't supposed to bleed down that quickly, my guess is that fitting is not 100%. But I really don't know. It could explain some of the hard starting though, if I turn on the key, let it prime then wait a couple of seconds while I screw with my gloves or whatever, then the line pressure would drop, meaning my one and only one injector blast is at less than half the intended fuel pressure and thus maybe not enough fuel to catch.

Ideas anyone?

Here's a list for new owners - of the '08 so probably some adjusts.

Stocker pipe is thermo fuclear. Might rethink that one.

Bartron's thread would be a good place to start looking for ideas...

a skid plate is a must. Also remove the two upper bolts that hold the radiator wind diverter in place and replace them with zip ties and you are ready for the woods. There are many things you can add later but these two things will get you off to a good start.

I can't figure how that chain snapped.

I'd wait till the new parts arrive, install the rear sprocket and new chain. Then operate on that countershaft sprocket nut with an impact or a breaker bar and a friend.

or just get an impact wrench, put in neutral and whack it loose in a second.

+1.

and if you dont have an impact you might be able to clamp the outside diameter of the sprocket with a big set of channel locks, put the bike in gear, and use a long handled wrench to loosen.

Unless you are going to stand on the pegs the whole time you're in the woods (a possibility), I would rank a Renazco seat near the top of the list. The only problem is that it usually takes several months to get one. Put your order in as soon as possible.

Depends on which model you chose, as you know we have two options for the 690's.
Send me an e-mail if you want to go with one of our new "Ergo" seats.

I should have went with one of your seats from the start. I've had the bike for 8 months and I'm on the 4th seat iteration and a bunch of $$ lighter.
I'll bug you in the spring if this one doesn't work out....

IMO; I think butt burn is from latent vibration. More so than seat shape or size. If the fix doesn't solve the vibration, you still have butt burn eventually regardless of your custom seat. I've tried some of those custom seats. I recently added a sheepskin solution for a big trip last September aboard a Yam wr250r. 2500 miles! 14 hour days! Stock seat.

Sheepskin and Nike compression shorts is the answer.
