    Looking for a reputable injector cleaning service to clean an injector from a Yamaha dirt bike.

    Don't really care where I need to send it as long as its done right.

    Any suggestions/good feedback for particular businesses??

    Put it in the washing machine with your airfilter.

    Good tool for a functioning but blocked injector, not so for an injector stuck shut with varnish.

    "Good tool for a functioning but blocked injector, not so for an injector stuck shut with varnish."

    Have you tried an ultrasonic cleaner?

    Don't have one at my disposal and I'd rather have it tested and properly assessed for function.

    Injector cleaning isn't anywhere near as common anymore, have done heaps of them but has been 20 years since the last one. Can't vouch for these guys nor have I seen their equipment but they appear to have a good rep in the area. http://www.efispares.com.au/services.aspx

    It's not difficult to clean and test at home with a $65 ultrasonic cleaner and a 9V/12V battery.

    Well aware of this, I have a jig for powering up injectors and flushing them already. However it is no good when the injector is stuck shut thus my search for professional testing.

    These aren't something that 12v and a hammer will fix.

    Prety hard to test the flow rate at home as well.

    You could probably take it to a diesel service centre with your activating jig and ask them if you could use their ultrasonic cleaner which should also heat the cleaning fluid. That should get it running again if you didn't want to send it away to a specialist (if there is one in AU). Its also assuming you have a diesel specialist near you I guess...

    The only other thing I could suggest is ring the Australian distributor of ASNU injector gear and ask them who has one of their units that they recommend you send it too for service. ASNU is the unit shown in the video below.


    The Au distributor is http://www.precisionautomotive.com.au/
    If someone has this gear they will have the other stuff to service your injectors and revive them if they can.

    I'm pretty sure this equipment was originally conceived and built in Australia, its all based in Europe and the US now - sold out I think.

    What makes you think an ultrasonic cleaner won't get it unstuck?

    The spray pattern would be a pretty fair indication of its flow potential. So would it's fitted performance, otherwise you are spending big.

    These $65 ultrasonic cleaners can run at 60 deg all day, all week if you want to, then switch on the ultrasonic side of it.

    mate if you can tell what the flow rate of an injector is just by looking at the spray patern then you have a very special talent.

    It may well get it unstuck but it's not going to indicate what the flow is doing. For someone to test it and say it's right or toss it is worth the cost when the bike needs to be reliable in remote areas.

    My eyes aren't calibrated to measure flow by spray pattern either.
