Default fuel injection for 96' zx7r

I am wanting to put fuel injection on my zx7r. Has anybody done this before by salvaging throttle boddies and computer off a fairly new GSXR or like?
My bike is already 793cc but has lumpy cams for top end speed.
It currently puts out 133bhp (same dyno as my old 7xr 750 89' which put out 96 bhp). I am after more efficient bottom end for around town. When my chain is ready to be replaced I will go down one tooth at the front and up 2 at the rear sprocket.

Anthing can be done. However you will need and ECU and several different sensors. Cam shaft sensor, crank sensor. Ambient air temp sensor, air pressue sensor. Quite a few of them depending on what ECU you use. Then trying to get a baseline map in order to get it to run will be another thing. It definately not just an average type of job...

IMHO, I think you are barking up the wrong tree. Too much $$$ to convert it to FI. If anything, I would look at a FI system from a ZX-9R or a 12R instead of a Suzuki. You will need the ECM, the wiring harness, etc.

I just don't think you will find the the FI lines up with the ZX-7R motor though.


PS: It would probably be easier (and cheaper) to get a new ZX-9R motor and figure out a way to weld up motor mounts to get it to fit than convert to FI.
