Thanks to Dave who sent me this information how he converted is Quota 1100 Electronic Fuel Injection to a In Dave’s own words:

After up with the poor running of the engine, due to the simple fuel system and reading on the Quota that the prototype was developed a Weber carb, I decided to try it.

I the rotor, removing the various to the ECU, they appeared to no effect on the advance curve. The one I couldn’t check was the T.P.I. of I could set later if necessary.

The throttle body was removed and an ex 3L V6 38 DGAS Weber was offered up. The problem was the auto choke it made the carb too wide to fit the frame rails.

I removed the body, but retained the back fitting a cable operated arm to the linkage. The carb now fitted the

The next step was to make new and choke cables. I used rear brake cables cut as a temporary measure. The choke and linkage now operate from the controls.

The next step was to jet the carb. One was the forward inclination of the carb on the I considered modifying the manifold, but to keep it standard in case the conversion failed.

To get around the I raised the float level by 2 mm so the fuel level at the emulsion was to original spec.

I then ran the changing jets as necessary. The problem was the accelerator pump jet was too much fuel to be delivered a flat spot. I reduced the jet but it was still causing a problem, so I the linkage and it ran much better.

The next mod was to fit the airbox to the carb. I a glassfibre box, which was and glued to the airbox after the section had been removed. then bolted to the top of the carb.

Now the system was complete, it was back to the setting of the carb.

With the set, the electric fuel were removed and replaced manual ones, the pressure was removed and the hole in the tank off, as were the injectors.

All the excess wiring was retained but the were capped and clipped out of the The fuel pump and filter removed and will be replaced by a tray.

The bike is now much to ride, it pulls well 2,500 RPM with no hesitation at RPM and revs all the way to the red line in the lower It doesn’t pink on overtakes and the consumption seems reasonable, not checked on a long run.

The jet sizes for the carb were:

level raised 2 mm

Main 150

Air corrector: 200

Idle jet: 50

tube: F50 modified

Accelerator removed and blanked off

I made further modifications and the final are:

Main jet: 140

Air 200

Idle jet: 52

Emulsion F50 with lower holes

Float level: 10 mm from top of to body approx 3.5 mm higher std, to counteract the forward of the manifold

The performance is good and is so much smoother with no in the power and fuel consumption out at mid to low 40’s MPG (imperial) with the mainly used two up with
