Fuel Injector Cleaning
In this day and age, modern motorcycles use electronic fuel injection systems that work with it’s engine control unit (ECU) to deliver the right amount of pressurised fuel, depending on the driver’s input. These work in conjunction with a whole range of other sensors including oxygen sensors, throttle position sensors, and air flow sensors to determine if an engine is running too rich or too lean.
Despite what some sources say, fuel injectors do have to be cleaned. Like every part on a motorcycle, fuel injectors need to be well maintained and cleaned of any build-up or residue to ensure smooth operation in internal combustion engines. If the injector nozzles are clogged, the fuel may not be atomised for vaporisation to occur. This may cause an engine to misfire, stall or idle roughly. It can also affect acceleration times and result in high emission levels.
Now, on to the cleaning methods. Because fuel injectors are delicate precision parts, cleaning them may be a bit of a hassle. There are several methods to do so. Easier methods involve filling a near-empty fuel tank with fuel additives such as fuel injector treatment cleaners or concentrates, and filling the rest of the tank with fuel. These break up the build-up of deposits, but are ineffective at clearing blockages or clogs in the system. In those cases, removing the individual injectors for a deep clean is your best bet.
One of the best ways is by ultrasonic cleaning. An ultrasonic fuel injector cleaning service involves using ultrasonic vibrations to dislodge and break up deposits left on the nozzles. Fuel injectors are removed from the engine and submerged in a bath of water or solvent, before putting them in an ultrasonic cleaner. Now, there are ultrasonic fuel injector cleaning service machines out on the market, but ultrasonic injector cleaning should be left to the professionals.
