Stan from Western Mass, USA.

I'm probably the oldest person in this group and I have loads of experience in varied disciplines required for a beta tester of this project.

Programming:
I have been writing code since my first FORTRAN program in 1976. I've written thousands of lines of code in everything from assembler to the latest Arduino IDE. I have computer hardware experience from 1980 to the ESP8266. I have a couple right in front of me now for some IOT projects. I'm not interested in writing code for this project though, I have enough on my plate.

Mechanics:
I have been working on engines since the early 1970s and did my first engine swap in a car when I was 17. I have a couple EFI conversions purchased from AliExpress, but I'm not happy with their closed systems or their choice of O2 sensors. I already own a couple wide-band O2 sensors for projects. I have done a couple 72cc GY6 big bore upgrades, including one with an 11 pole stator in preparation for EFI. I rebuild outdoor machines as a sideline for extra cash. Oh, I also have a MegaSquirt for an EFI conversion of my 1968 Fiat.

Other Skills:
I have been a machinist and own a lathe and small mill to customize parts as required. I own two welders, a plasma cutter and practically anything required to maintain cars, bike and tractors. I also own an old school oscilloscope and a digital one. (Useful for viewing the CDI trigger pulse if required.)

Goals:
My first project for Nano EFI would be for my 140cc GY6 based trike. This would include all sensors from TPS to wide band O2. Then I'd adapt it to one of my small GY6 engines, I have four besides my trike, each family member has one. After that I'd be interested in adapting it for use in small engines for outdoor machines, riding mowers, etc. These would probably be run with just TPS and RPM to keep costs down. I'd probably have to make my own throttle bodies for this since there aren't any open source products for that marketplace. The biggest issue would be providing enough power to handle the EFI fuel pump.

That covers a bunch of qualifications I have to be a beta tester.

Id love to participate.

Ive got a 79 ct90 stock
two ct70s, 88cc kits but atock looking.... both with cdi conversions.

Currently im building a ct110 with a ct125 cylinder and crank. Modifying charging system to run a Gy6 flywheel and stator converting to 12V....

Ive got a 1937 southbend lathe and a Chinese benchtop mill.... lots of fun!

Hi I would like to receive a beta, I have a yamaha 150cc engine that i have on a stand. it originally came from a Yamaha Fazer from India.

I used to work in engine development at Triumph motorcycles and worked on valvetrain and exhaust systems. I am not the greatest programmer or electronics engineer however i work now with mass spectrometers therefore have access to a reasonable amount of equipment and colleges that are electronics and software engineers.

I would also be able to assist with the design of the throttle body.

Thanks
Matt

I love my old motorcycles. I like their overall simplicity, though I wish at least a few of mine had an efi (preferably all). It's not fun dealing with carbs on some machines. Other efi kits cost more than I paid for the bike I'd install them to. I'd love to beta test a project like this!

My stable:
1972 Yamaha DT175
1980 Honda Goldwing GL1100 standard
1982 Suzuki GS850G
1992 Suzuki GSX1100G
1996 Honda CBR600F3
2009 CF Moto Fashion 250
2012 Jinlun Ruckus 150

I'll soon likely replace that Ruckus clone or CF Moto with a Sym Symba.

I'm an IT analyst by career but I also dabble in working on potential inventions and I'm generally mechanically inclined (I've replaced most parts in that CF Moto and do my own car and moto repairs). My main interest with efi is to eventually have all my old steeds efi, but starting small with the scooters. :)

Hi I'm employed electrics/automation engineer. My hobby is restoring motorcycles,generators,small power equipment ,automotive electronics. I have fully equipped workshop(oscilloscopes, gas analysers,combustion analysers). I'm lookin for kit which can be adapted to universally to many types of two strokes or 4strokes single cylinder engines to ease fuel tuning, enable use of multiple fuels, enhance better efficiency. I have lots of stuff what I will try it on,starting from generators (like honda em 65is,eg550-etc.),power equipment chainsaws water pumps ending on motorcycles like honda fx650,honda mtx 200 and one Polaris ATV. Engineering is good fun and I think this will be the ultimate kit to play with all my stuff and real work testing. Challenge me :D

I'll keep mine short and sweet.

I own a 2014 Grom with upgraded engine and a piggy-back ECU. Was looking for DIY ECU options and stumbled across this project.

I work for an automotive performance shop. (Mitsubishi, Subaru, Ecoboost, BMW, etc).
Very familiar with tuning and ECU logic, plus I have access to a dyno.
Our owners/founders are both tuners and software engineers. I personally have an electronics background (aircraft, automotive, and circuit board repair).
