removing injector

Recommended Posts

Yes, you can do it, but it's tricky! Did you ever play "Operation" as a kid???

Okay, here we go. There are two ways to do this, but the easiest is to remove seat and tank completely. The fuel hose connection at the tank is removed by first gently prying the plastic cover away from the fuel pump, then squeezing the blueish-green part of the fuel connector together.

This will allow you to slide the fuel hose backwards off of the fuel pump barb.

Be careful, as a little gas may spray out as you do this as it's under pressure.

Next, remove the top 2 subframe bolts and loosen the bottom 2. This will allow the subframe to "relax" backwards a little bit making the next "operation" much easier. Next clean the area with contact cleaner .A little compressed air doesn't hurt, either.

Remove the zip ties that are holding the wiring harness around the tank/shock mount area. This will allow you to reach under this area, above the injector, and move the harness out of your way. If you use a flashlight, you will be able to look between the frame and the air boot at the back of the injector. It's mounted with 2 5mm screws with 8mm heads.

To remove these, use a 1/4" setup with a wobbly socket, and at least a 6" extension. 3/8 is too big to fit. A flashlight shining from the front side is helpful while doing this. After loosening the bolts completely, use a long-reach magnet to grab the bolts out. If you don't they will fall into oblivion. Don't ask how I know this!

Next, remove the connector to the injector, and twist the injector up and to the side while holding the harness back towards the shock. There might be some dirt in this area, so spray with contact cleaner liberally first. You can't make it too clean! To take the fuel line off the injector just pull apart.

That's it! To install, reverse order of removal. It will take 7-10 kicks to build fuel pressure back up.

Hope this helps!

Awesome - I will gown up for surgery later today :banana:

Need to clean the injector to see if it help my starting issue

Injectors are sealed units, unless you have a machine like an ASNU diagnostic machine you are potentially going to damage it at worst, or at best do nothing.

If I was gonna pull the injector because it isn't working right, I would go ahead and replace it.

Just my opinion.

I don't know about that, my injector was not spraying through all the holes, so we energized it with a 9-volt battery, and back-flushed it with carb cleaner and compressed air and it worked awesome! Runs like new!

You gotta think that these units are pretty hearty having to withstand high temps, pressure, gasoline, and the occaisional backfire!

How did you know it was not spraying through all the holes? Without pressure behind it and turning it on and off at 500x -11,000x per minute, you didn't have a GOOD idea how it was operating. On the bike, you can't see the spray pattern OR measure the flow rate.

Now, if it was not running well, and you got it to go with a 9vt battery (injectors operate on 12vt) you got lucky:ride: Nothing wrong with a bit of luck every now and then.

If he got it to open and hold with the 9 volt battery (which I doubt if he's talking about one of those transistor radio batts...not enough current) he could back flush it and clear the holes.

Most fuel injectors need about 4-6 amps to run. A 9 volt transistor radio batt. isnt going to provide that, or even close. If it would, you sure as hell wouldnt put one on youre tounge to test it!! :banana:

don't buy it. "backflushing" won't work as there is a fine mesh filter basket in the top feed area of the injector. You would need to remove that, and nothing is getting past that filter that could simply block one of the holes. there is another problem.

Yeah, you're right, I made the whole thing up because I'm a glory whore.

I just tried the 9 volt on the injector. Yes, it works. 

Melkman is right about the final pre-injector pintle filter though. If you were to pluck that out, then back flush, then put that back...that's a different story. That's a common problem on the KTMs.

I dont know about the filter, I just know it clicked open & closed & I could shoot cleaner & air through it when opened.

And I dont know anything about gotwings, he still could be a glory whore.  ;)

      I just bought a Magura hydraulic clutch for my 2014 CRF450R.  Bought it thinking install would be easy, and I'm not sure that's the case now that I have the product in my hands.  I have searched the forums, YouTube, etc for install help specifically for my model year (2013 and 2014 are same really), and haven't found anything specific for the 2013-2014 model install at all.  Instructions from Magura are TERRIBLE, and are not specific at all to the Honda - generic instructions - so I'm debating if I want to return the product, cuz I don't want trouble or a big install job.  Question: for the 2013-2014 CRF450R install ONLY of a Magura Hymec hydraulic clutch - other model years are different and thus it won't be helpful for other model years - do you have any tips or feedback?  My concerns are below...
      1.  The 2014 model has a sleeve behind the clutch actuation arm that the Magura clutch slave cylinder fits into.  Stock, the sleeve holds one end of the cable, with a nut on the other end to keep the cable end tight in the sleeve.  The Magura slave cylinder, however, slides into the mounting sleeve  - but does NOT have a nut: the tension from the clutch actuation arm pulling on the metal Magura slave cyl tip end is apparently supposed to keep the Magura slave cylinder tight in the mounting sleeve.  Q: Will the Magura slave fit in to the mounting sleeve easily, stay tight, and is there any adjustment needed in order to keep the 4-6mm of freeplay that Magura recommends?  How easy is it to get the Magura slave fitted into the sleeve and the metal tip in place?  Is there enough freeplay between slave and tip end to mount in actuating arm AND the holding sleeve, so that the holding sleeve doesn't need to be unbolted?  
      2. The stock clutch cable and OEM setup runs out of the mounting sleeve (see pics marked "metal starts", and then runs through a metal sleeve that routes the cable through the engine compartment - keeping the cable away from the hot parts of the engine case, so as not to melt the cable insulation (I believe).  That metal sleeve is about 6-8 inches in length.  The Magura clutch cable, on the other hand, exits the Magura slave cylinder at an angle - yet has no such metal routing.  I don't think the OEM metal routing sleeve will accept the Magura cable either, so a) the OEM metal routing sleeve would have to be removed first before installing the Magura - and then b) you have to hope that the Magura cable can be routed in such a way with zip ties holding the hydraulic line that line will not touch or be close to the hot metal engine casing as you route it through the engine.  Q: how easy was it to get the OEM clutch cable and metal routing sleeve out?  Easy as unscrewing the nut on the other end of the OEM cable, on the other side of the black rubber cable flange in my pics?   
      3.  My stock clutch pull isn't bad.  I just like the feel of a hydro clutch.  Any feedback on how much better feeling and easier pull will be with the Magura?  What's your feedback on the difference?  FYI, I'm leaving my clutch plates and springs stock.

      We have a 2016 CRF450R with about 11 hours out. never ridden hard always check the oil and change when needed along with the air filter. Took care of the recall that was required as well. Well when riding the bike was stalled out. Went to try and kick start the bike again. the kick start lever just back up jamming my knee into the handle bars and some how ended up cracking the case right by where the kick start goes through the case. Has any one had this happen or heard of this happening? What is the cause?

      Any advice on what should be replaced while I have the top end off for a valve replacement. Will do headgasket and springs of course, anything other parts you would recommend while I'm going at it?
       
      Thanks!

      The dirtbike is on it's forth year right now on the same motor job. I have to jump start it. Is it worth me trading for a 2009 650 brute force with7000 miles? Need some expert advice. Thanks

      Just wondering what you guys do to remove black marks on your seat. My 08 crf450r has the red/black seat, and after each ride there are some black marks on the red from my riding pants. Not scuff marks, more like patches of black residue from my pants rubbing on the seat. I’ve tried the magic eraser which seemed to do the trick, but lately they seem like they aren’t coming off. Also tried scrubbing bubbles with a brush and no luck. Not too worried cuz I have an spare OEM seat, but I’d like to keep this one nice. Any ideas? Maybe I shouldn’t wear black pants?
