    Injectors

    How bad would it be to change the injectors?
    It doesnt look fun.
    I haven't done a fuel pressure test so I'm assuming right now they are fouled up from bike sitting so long. The pumps running the engine light comes on for 4 seconds on start up the battery is brand new. The spark plugs are brand new. The pump is brand new. The fuel is brand new supreme. The air filter is clean.
    Bike just rolls over. With a small shot of ether I can get the bike to kick but there is no fuel delivery.

    IMO nothings that difficult to change out. Just set aside a day and take your time.

    Get new o rings, then take them out and try soaking them in injector cleaner, after that connect the wire and check the spray pattern or, just go out and spend money.

    Oh yeah, year and milage info would help.

    If the injectors are gummed up from gas going bad while sitting then new gas and injector cleaner may work. If they are carboned-up and fouled the only way to clean is with an ultrasonic cleaner.

    I had my cleaned at their Kirkland WA shop, http://www.docinjector.com/index.html In addition to cleaning you get new seals, baskets and a flow bench flow report. Call one of the shops before mailing in.

    It sounds easy-peasy brochacho. Get some 80's montage music going and you should be done in about 45 minutes... or 3 beers in Cooter-speak.
