We've moved to a new forum software package (called Discourse). It's much better suited for our needs and better all around. Please spend a moment and register there, even if you're already registered here. I've posted new progress updates there to kick off new topics of conversation. I hope to see you there! Thanks!

I have thought long and hard about this, and as I am not in reality to be in a position to be testing for 6 months or more, plus my bike is modded and now 425cc, so not really eligible. I will stand down from applying for a beta position.

What I will do is offer my services, I acknowledge that there are many here with more skills than I, but I may offer other skills that can help, and I think that more knowledge into the hivemind can only help to improve the product, which is in the best interest of Travis, and ultimately in the best interest of all of us here.

My relevant(ish) skill set:
qualified auto electrician, have been working on bikes and cars for years, currently working on heavy mining machinery underground.
(Australian TAFE (Technical and Further Education)) General Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Security Systems (Data and phone lines)
Just completed an RCT course in heavy remote automation maintenance.

I would be more than happy to be of assistance in this project, and have been watching it for a very long time.
So when people are in the BETA testing stage, if there are issues, fire off some questions and I will try and assist.

Cheers.
Al.

Hey i Just signed up to patreon as a top contributer. But as far as my experience is concerned. I'm well experienced with engines and EFI systems, personally having built and tuned by myself a 650kw sr20 based drift car. Ive been a coder since I was ~4-5 yrs old and i studied a dual degree in computer systems engineering/ microelectronic enginereering. I've personally designed a 2d programmable ignition driver based off the Motorola hs12x series. I'm well experienced in board level diagnosics, working behind a scope for years reverse engineering to repair obsolete designs. Im currently employed in designing custom CNC machines with encoder signals being brought back to the trajectory planner in real-time.

I plan to use this to drive a ct110 "postie bike" with 15:1 compression, ceramic coated pistons/valves/head chamber and ethanol 90/10 water mix in an effort to make an insanely efficient commmuter.

I believe i have the jack of all trades purview, with technical acuity to not only demonstrate this as a product, but also be able to give quality assistance in the debug process.

I have been periodically checking in on the progress of the project and have been holding off on just going ahead with a chinese style megasquirt knock off in anticipation of this project coming to completion.

Sincerely,
That **** that really ****ing wants to see you succeed.

This is an awesome project, I would love to help with it if I can.

My background is in electrical & mechanical engineering and worked as a systems engineer for robotics and industrial automation. Now I run technical support for a software company (basically troubleshooting really complex healthcare software as a profession)

Very familiar with engines, control systems, system design, and integration of components. Also equipped for welding and fabrication, though not a ton of experience there.

I’m looking to put forced induction on a predator 212 with EFI, pretty much just for grins and to teach my kids about how engines work. Also planning to build a dyno to load and tune on the bench.

I was going to use one of the mainstream DIY EFI controllers for cars but it’s way overkill and not all that well suited for small single cylinder engines. That’s when I came across this project!

Looking forward to seeing this develop and how I can help make it successful.

Also seems like there is a huge opportunity to revolutionize the kart racing world with EFI tuning which the auto racing world long ago adopted. That would be very cool to see.

Hello! my name is marcelo i'm an electronics technician, i developed a programmable cdi for my yamaha RD-135 motorcycle (similar to the RD 125 E RXZ 135) I have experience in C language programming, I work with AVR and ESP32, I develop plates on proteus and I have EMC / EMI basics. I also have experience in DC / DC inverters for cdi and various tools to test here (oscilloscope, strobe lamp etc ...)

Howdy.
I think I could make a difference in the beta stage.

I have a riding lawnmower with a Kohler 14-hp single cylinder engine. (1997 Deere STX46, Kohler Command 14-hp CV14S-1463 398cc single cylinder.)

I'm a software engineer for a day job (mostly Java,) I did my master's degree in embedded systems, I do lots of hobbyist projects w/ raspberry pis and arduinos.

I've got lots of prototyping equipment (soldering, oscilloscopes, 3d printer, mig welder,) and a buddy with metalworking equipment (lathe, tig welder, cnc machine.)

I'd love to help give lots of old equipment a new lease on life and make carbs a thing of the past.

(If it matters I'm a Patreon of this project now too.)

Software Engineer. No application as of yet. Kicking around the idea of getting a ZNEN, Tao Tao, or Ruckus with a GY6 engine. This is not the first time I've done an EFI conversion, but it has be about 20 years. I installed an Elderbrock EFI kit on a Chevy 383. I'm not that ambitious anymore, but I could go for doing up a scooter. I also looked at the EFI kits that rolling wrench offers, but this project looks far more interesting.

Hey Travis,
I am a retired mechanical engineer, Oil Refinery worker, and road raced both cars and motorcycles. The cars were Yamaha and Suzuki 1000's. I am a sensor tech hobby/geek. When boiling oil, I was a control systems tech/engineer, even though an ME.
I would prefer doing the CRF250 engine. (same as a CBR), though I also have a Yamaha 125 Mio. (Thailand), Both are already fuel injected, but the CRF250 has an interesting engine. CBR300 cams, ceramic piston treatments and a better air box. I lost my tuner/dyno friend to a stroke. He was a Honda HRC tuner. I just bought a 38mm throttle. Yours would be way too small.
If you are willing...we could beta test the EFI with my hardware, at any point. I am looking towards a version with 50 to 70cc volumes in the future, but 125 to 300 would make $$$.

Hi, Its' Kemp here from Philippines, Currently I'm into Racing single displacement bikes from 125cc bikes upto 150cc bikes, i have knowledge in single displacement bikes taking apart into pieces and currently has a honda RS150 fuel injected bike, I have some major knowledge in programming, especially in arduino, and just finish a project with race timing systems, im hoping to have one of your beta kits to be installed on non efi race engines and test on the tracks we have some major number of models of bikes to be tested from pushrod single cam to dual over head cam engines, hoping to have one of your kits and test on our bikes and setup a market for your systems to be installed on other teams to convert there carburated bikes into efi race bikes, I have also knowledge in tuning and mapping aftermarket ecu cause as of now im using one of those ecu and installed on my bikes, my main goal is to run your kit on non efi single displacement bikes. Thanks
