Injectors

Recommended Posts

How many of you have replaced the injector on your Hisun ?  Where did you purchase your replacement injector from ?  I've replaced my injector twice. Replaced the original with an injector I purchased on eBay (from Dr Motorcycle I think), and then found one on Amazon. Yesterday I dropped both injectors that had been replaced at an Injector Cleaning shop. They will test them to see how they were performing before doing anything, then, clean,  replace the basket on inlet and both orings then run another test. The cost is $18/injector. I'm anxious to see the results.

Please post the results when you get them, really interested to see if it's worth the money because new injectors for the hisun aren't cheap!  Also where did you find this place to clean the injectors?

They are in Houston (actually I think Sugarland). I’ve used them to test/clean the injectors for my Yamaha outboard. Will definitely give update after I pick them up next week.

I have never needed to replace a fuel injector in anything--I have upgraded them to higher capacity numerous times. Cleaning them is easy, I connect a 4" or so long piece of vinyl tubing; of appropriate ID to fit snugly;  to the outlet end of the injector,. Next fill the tube with cheap Super Tech carburettor cleaner from Walmart. Pressurize the tubing with compressed air to 40 to 45 psi¹ then activate the injector. Do that 2 or 3 times and it will be clean. Some do this from the inlet end, however I have found  back flow flushing to be more effective.

I also have a rig using a 100 cc graduated column (actually a big syringe) that allows me to time how long it takes the injector to squirt 100 cc of fluid--I use naphtha--that provides a pretty good indication of it's flow rate.

CAUTION: Make sure you do any of this in a well ventilated area--and use an enclosed switch to trigger the injector. Flammable aerosols and nearby sparks can make bad things happen!

¹ - Most fuel injectors are rated at an operating pressure of 3 bar (43.5 psi).

Got the injectors back today. They found the original injector (one it came with) to be bad and not serviceable. The replacement injector I had purchased off eBay, but not from Motorcycle Dr as I originally thought, was found with a Fair spray pattern and after cleaning it was upgraded to Good. Static Flow increased from 280 to 292 after cleaning.... (not sure what the 280 or 292 value measurement is). Attached is the report they provide when the work is completed.  Another note worthy detail is they do not charge for testing an injector that is found to be bad. All, in all I think the $18 + tax is pretty reasonable if the results are positive.

Anxious now to get back home and install the newly cleaned injector and see what (if any) the results are.

"Static flow" rate is the flow in units of quantity per unit of time with the injector held open. The 280 and 292 values are the flow in cc/min (cubic centimeters per minute)--divide cc/min by 10.5 to estimate the flow in lbs/hour (pounds per hour).

Gasoline weighs 6.073 to 6.2 lbs per gallon  (87 to 93 octane);

one gallon = 3785.4 cc,--therefore 1 cc = 0.00026417 gallon = 0.0016043 pounds (87 octane);

1 cc/min (87 octane) = 0.0962583 lbs/hour (0.0016403 * 60);

292 cc/min  = 28.1 lbs/hour (292 *0.0962583) (87 octane)

It looks like Injector ℞ used 6.0 lbs/gallon--close enough...

At 6.0 lbs/gallon, 1 cc/min = 0.0951012 lbs/hour; * 292 = 27.7695 lbs/hour.

BTW: fuel injector flow is pretty much directly relaed to the maximum HP an engine can produce--per this formula:

InjectorHPFornula-01.png

BSFC = Brake Specific Fuel Consumption; the rate of fuel consumption divided by the HP produced. The rule of thumb value for  naturally aspirated gasoline engines is 0.45 to 0.5 pound per hour per horsepower. So, our 27.77 l/h injector operating at a not actually feasible or possible 100 % duty cycle  could (if possible) support:

(27.77 * 1 [100%]* 1  [cylinder]) / 0.45 [BSFC] = 61.7 HP.

But at practical  75% duty cycle --and assuming dynamic flow rates at less than the static flow rate digress along a linear curve (hint: they do not)-- we get:

(27.77 * 0.75 [75%]* 1  [cylinder]) / 0.45 [BSFC] = 46.28 HP.

Or more likely 40 to 44 HP in our real world.

Thanks !! good stuff for sure

Installed the injector serviced by InjectorRx  today and the  engine ran better than it ever has. Proof will be in a sustained improvement but initial results are great. Planning to bring the injector I removed to them for servicing to have a spare

      Machine sat and had multiple rodent chews thru out the wiring that we fixed.  Also replaced the Following: ECU, Coil and Plug Wire, small Control Box that contains fuses and relays.  Pick Up coil test at 219 ohms which is typically good on most machines but i can't find the specific manual on this thing to get the spec.  Battery good, cranks fine but the fuel pump doesn't prime or run and no spark.  Tested pump with direct 12volts and it works.  If we supply a ground to the pump it primes and works but still no spark.  We have traced all wiring including grounding and all is good. Tested key switch.  I has (4) positions.  1 - off, 2 - does nothing, 3 - powers up everything (lighting and odometer and powers ECU, 4 - starts engine.  The key switch only has 3 wires. 12v in from battery and 2 - 12v out which is power to the system and send 12v to starter relay coil.
      Are these electrical systems actually switching the grounds on and off vs the traditional switching the 12v+ on and off.  
      at my wits end with this thing. 
       
      Also when we figure this problem out we will post the solution.  seems 90% of people that ask for help on these forums, never post the fix which make this pointless.

      Purchased it used a week ago.  Found that it wont start from key but will start if solenoid jumped. Also noticed that brake lights don't work checked switch and its working, may be the no start problem from key. 
      Turn signals and hazards do not work headlights tail lights and hi beams all work. 
      have a manual but it is hard to decipher. 
      Hoping that someone has run into these issues and can point me in the right direction with the lights. I believe if i can get brake lights to work it may solve starting from key issue. 
      Thanks

      I had mentioned in a previous post that I had removed the front anti-roll bar from my 2020 Outfitter 400; I ran that way for a month or so without noticing any downside however recently I installed a 'suicide knob" (see below) to assist my Parkinson's disease affected arms in turning the beast--but after doing so i found that in the quicker, tighter turns the knob permitted the vehicle would nosedive a bit, dig in, and plow  on hard surfaces--not scary, but quite noticeably.
      So I put the bar back on. Then today I got about 1-1/2 miles down the main road on the nearby power lines, turned around and came home to take it off--with the bar on, at 25 to 30 MPH, the front-end of the beast jumped like rabbit at each bump in either wheel rut., for a nearly brutal and quite uncomfortable ride. the bar (20 mm solid steel) is far too robust for the weight of the vehicle. The front bar on my 3900 lb. Infinity M37 is 30 mm...
      suicide knob--for you younger folks:

      Hi friends, I have a new utv Hisun 700. My problem is idle adjustment.  How is idle adjustment done? While my engine is idling 2500- 2700 rpm. I need idling adjustment 1500 rpm. Where I am, there is no master who understands this tool. How do you do the idle setting? Can you help me? Hello everyone. Thank you.

      I recently bought a 2010 Hisun 700 UTV and have been having a heck of a time with the throttle cable and carb.  I did get it to 38 miles an hour, but now its dropped to 33.  Is that the full speed for this buggy?  I am on my second throttle cable trying to find the correct length to make the speed consistent. I floor it, but it takes a good while to get up to speed.  What is everyone else getting for speed?  And any ideas on how to set the throttle cable or adjust the carb?  Thank you!!
