I thought I'd post this report for those of you wondering about having your injectors cleaned and balanced.
Backstory: this 2013 Norge sat for five years, but it was super low miles and well cared for. I thought it would be smart to have the injectors cleaned. Todd suggested doing so as well.
I broke one of them removing it from the fuel hose. (The electrical connection is super fragile btw. You've been warned.) I got a used one and sent the pair to RC Fuel Injection. The report below shows us before and after, with my special red annotations, lol. Hard to say which one was the original on this bike, but they were both "dripping" as received. Hey, no jokes necessary...

Thanks for posting this.
Getting my injectors cleaned is on my to do list for the winter. I'm at about 66K km and I'm sure it needs doing.
I'll sync the throttle bodies again after it's done.

It's the injector to be considered, not the motorcycle model, so the injectors used in Norge (and many other) are feed from top.

VictorScott where did you get the used injector? I found one in Germany. New are back-ordered for 8+ weeks.
I removed mine as if they were made of thin porcelain but one has a connector that is a tiny bit loose and I'm concerned it won't work.
Also the right side is dripping fuel from the fuel line. Did you disconnect the fuel pump and crank the engine to take off the pressure?

P.S.It stopped leaking fuel after about 30 minutes.
I got it from Todd here at GTM. Don't know if he wants to get rid of any others.
And, I did not disconnect the fuel pump or do anything fancy. A little fuel did come out over the days but it wasn't too much. I wrapped each line with a little paper shop towel scrap and over that with aluminum foil. I find aluminum foil pieces very handy when wrenching; it can hold screws and bolts in place where they'd otherwise fall out and get misplaced.

I had the leak stopped but overnight it started again and blistered the paint on the right side of the gas tank. Guess I'll try to disconnect the delicate "porcelain" so called quick connector on the fuel pump and drain the fuel lines, now that it's too late and the damage is done.:mad:
At least by pissing gas everywhere the pressure is out of the fuel line which makes disconnecting it easier.
To make matters worse, the bike is in the house so the whole place reeks of gas. The wife and cats are not happy with me.
