Fuel Injection questions, ask away.

why do the fuel pumps cost more than a carburator

They don't unless you are looking in the wrong place or comparing apples to oranges.

I sure would like to see a mechanical fuel pump instead of electric-in-the-tank

It would cut the power requirements way down, maybe dropping the need for a battery or capacitor.

I can build you one. Do you want to drive it off the cam or the crank?

what kind of injector and what are the specs of the injector for a Suzuki LTR 450 quad. I'm thinking of using this TB on a 2003 DR650 fuel injection project.

In fact I would like to use most of the hard parts off this FI system and a microsquirt to run it.

It should adapt quite well. Although, for the cost, you could go buy another motorcycle. Ebay parts are very cheap. Here is a throttle body with injector, fuel rail, regulator, and throttle position sensor. All for $40.00. Worked very well.

It's to prevent fuel starvation from slosh. They are often necessary when fuel injecting classic cars because most don't have tanks with baffles around the pickup. It's even more necessary with a "dead head" fuel system(no fuel return).

Here are some GM sensors. One enclosed, one open.

For anyone unfamiliar, I will add that the open element sensor is for intake air temperature(IAT) and the brass one is for either IAT or engine coolant temp(ECT), but the response is pretty slow when using it for air. It also tends to heat soak much worse.
