Abstract

Various researches have been done on the development of a retrofit fuel injection kit for small capacity engines such as lawn mowers and underbone motorcycles as a solution to the emission problems caused by these small gasoline engines. However, the implementation of these retrofit kits has so far been limited to be used in lab tests only. The system is too bulky to be used on road. Furthermore, the durability issue of the system on the road has not been stressed out so far. Thus, the challenge here is to conduct an on-road durability study of the retrofit fuel injection kit when it is fitted to a MOMOS 115cc motorcycle engine. For this purpose, the system configuration settings must be suited for the use on the MOMOS 115 cc motorcycle engine. This is done by implementing the ECU (electronic control unit) mapping of the configuration settings for the motorcycle application. The durability of the system will be evaluated quantitatively and qualitatively. Previous test was done on a 125 cc NAZA Flash motorcycle engine to evaluate the performance curve and fuel economy of the engine equipped with the retrofit fuel injection kit. The test was done using the Gunt CT110 test stand. The result showed that the performance of the engine when using the retrofit kit had improved compared to that when equipped with a carburetor. It also showed an improvement on the fuel economy. At the end of this research, it is expected that the durability study will provide indications that it is possible for the retrofit kit be used on the road with minimal problem.
