who done it? In the big picture I'm toying around with the boss about a turbo project bike for the shop, but before we go there I think it might be wise to learn all I can about this megasquirt business the kids are talking about these days. Anyone have any insight? The internet seems to have more than enough reading - I don't even know where to begin! getting paid at work to read the megasquirt FAQs right now.

Megasquirt is an aftermarket programmable electronic fuel injection controller often used on import rice rockets. It lets you load custom EFI mapping & whatnot. There was a guy on the xjbikes forum that used a megasquirt controller, GSXR 600 throttle bodies and Dodge neon distributor to add EFI to his carbed XJ700 inline 4 banger bike. IIRC the guy was a jet engine diagnostic tech in the military or something so he had the know-how to map. The initial investment was around $1k in parts.


Edit: Just checked and it looks like there are at least 5 others over there who've done it as well.
Here's (http://xjbikes.com/Forums/viewtopic/t=29313/highlight=megasquirt.html) his build thread & here's (http://xjbikes.com/Forums/viewtopic/t=34144/highlight=megasquirt.html) the Megasquirt discussion thread

I have a preunit with Micro squirt . It was there do it yourself kit . I run a head temp sensor , a Ex cam position sensor ( old boyer hall pickup ) two bosh injectors from a ducati 750 . Adjustable preasure regulator throttle position from the duc. throttle bodies and a map sensor . I still have not got all the bugs worded out and I think I might just go back to Amal 932's . Mind you I bearly ever work on it and I the bike is down again because I changed the rake . In therory it will work and be awesome but I'm kinda over the Awe effect that got me started on this back in 05 .

did your throttle bodies have injector ports? I was thinkin a tr6 head and add bungs right before the intake ports and a Jenvey throttle body w/ no injector ports. simply modify an original, or even a mikuni intake manifold (for the larger bore). I'd love to see some pictures of how you've arranged things, if you have any. I was thinking microsquirt too, for the obvious benefits.

I'm running a 9 bolt t120 head with spigots . Then I bought the injector/throttle bodies off ebay . The injector goes directly to the body . I put the map sensor at the balance tubes . I had to remake the brakets and linkage since the duc is a 90 deg Vtwin . I'm really shity about taking pictures and this was a project that started back in 04/05 . I wanted to add a crank post. sensor to it but never did . I think if I was to redo it I would just run a head , map and thottle position . You could google it I think I did a built thread on thechopperunderground . I think it was called von tiki pre unit . Not sure . Maybe I will dig it out and snap some pics . I have a set of Wahl phillips injectors Iw ant to run on it so it would look better .
