Fuel Injection Conversion

I have an 08' and was thinking about putting fuel injection on it and was wondering if it would be worth the time and affort. I have pretty much everything for it I believe, (fuel injection that came off a Brute Force). I have not done to much research on how compatible the electronics off the Brute Force is with the Teryx. Does anyone know the differences and do I need to stick with the carbs.

Sell the 08 and buy a EFI model, you will come out way better.

Engines are same but wiring harness, intakes, flywheels, stators, pick up coils ignition etc different.

Tod, whats the differance with the intakes, flywheels, stators, pick up coils ignition ? I have been looking into doing the same conversion and these parts looked the same to me?

Some of the research that I have done is on a few of these components and according to a website that gives out Kawasaki part numbers most of the match up. I know the fuel pump is the same because that was the the go or no go factor. At 475.00 bucks I was not going to buy a new one. The fuel tank is differently not the same but is cheep to buy.

What is the big benefit of having FI, is it only throttle response and for cold starts or am I going to see a HP increase? I will post part numbers for a Brute Force and for a Teryx later on these parts.

I don't want to sell my 08 because I will never get what I have into it and I dont want to start all over again. The only thing that I don't like about it is the cold starts, expecially since I live in Michigan. Winters can be a little cold.

You could buy an 09, transfer the aftermarket parts to it and then sell the 08.

The plenum is different with the tank on the side for the oil breather and the air intake sensor.

All the electronics are different in the motor cause the EFI has to have more resolution meaning it needs to know where the engine is more often than the CDI does.

The whole wiring harness is different and the whole ECU is different as well.

It just cost way to much to do, probably $3000 or so

I could be wrong but I thought the 2008 has an external fuel pump and the 2009 has a fuel pump in the tank built on to the pickup and is higher pressure pump for the injecters, according to the Kawi parts look up its a different # the 2008 cost 61.00 and the 2009 cost 445.00, part # or sku for the 2008 is 49040 0025 and for the 2009 is 49040 0041, I think that the main reason the tank is different, and you are right on about the cold starting I have a 2006 Rhino with carbs I hate starting it in cold weather its a bitch until it warms up.

The fuel pump and tank are differant, fuel injection is 43 psi and carbs are low presure.You could run an external pump and regulator. What Im not clear on yet is if the crank sensor will fire the FI. it should. Ive converted a 83 toyota 22r to 22re and it used the same distributor, just had to blend in the FI harness with the factory harness. it works fine. The Teryx should be the same. All it should need is a number 1 referance (crank sensor) and the FI computer should do the rest. I have all the parts to play with, just havent had time. It will be a fun project.
