Fuel Injectors

My SV sat dorment for quite some time. I tried starting it the other day she will run off either but the injectors seem to be clogged. Could you guys help me with trying to find a way to clean them?

Re: Fuel Injectors

There are plenty of fuel injector cleaner fuel additives that you can buy at your local auto parts store. Wal-Mart probably has them as well. Buy some and follow the directions.

Travis
How long did it sit for?

Indoors or out?

What else have you done to troubleshoot?

Seems odd to me that a 2004 would already be clogged up unless it sat since 2005.

Re: Fuel Injectors

I wrecked it in 05 and sold it I bought it back 6 months ago I ago the guy said it ran but who knows. Ive tried blowing air through it and let it sit in a bowl of injector cleaner. Im prett sure its the injectores I can hear the fuel pump turn on with the key and the fuel lines are not clogged.

Re: Fuel Injectors

If you're confident that the injectors are at fault and have ruled out all other possibilities I would just send your injectors for a proper flow-rate test and have them call you prior to performing any cleaning/matching services.

Alternatively if you can find a cheap set of Throttle Bodies and/or injectors you can try that too... however just be wary that you might bring yourself right back to the same problem of needing to have a professional cleaning done.

Simply soaking injectors doesn't do much.

Oh, maybe more reasonable then.

Re: Fuel Injectors

Hi Travis,
Please let us know how that works out for you. We don't see too many cases of clogged injectors on the SV. I'd be interested in knowing if that fixes your problem, how successful cleaning them is, or if replacement is required since the bike sat for so long, (>3years?).

I'm actually surprised your fuel pump still makes operating sounds. You might want to test fuel pump pressure and flow rate. Pressure should be about 43psi, and flow should be 168ml/10sec. It's probably a good idea to pull the pump and clean the fuel filter and fuel mesh strainer too.

Good luck!
