Abstract: Port Fuel Injection (PFI) was developed in 1980s for automotive industry in order to improve engine performance and control emission effectively. It is now used widely in modern cars and some kind of sport motorcycles. To take advantage of electronic, the premix of air-fuel and combustion process can be programmed and controlled very precisely. Therefore, the emission and performance of the engine can be improved significantly for different working conditions. One of the main reasons for remote use of PFI technology in motorcycle is its complexity added with high cost. This paper reports on the design, development and fabrication of a new and compact PFI system that can replace an in-used carburetor easily with minimum modifications.
