    impressive. Those RD350's are very fast bikes, and get quicker the closer they get to blowing up !

    What a great idea! Hadn't thought of that solution. I'll have a good look into what it might take to mate something like that to the Gutz engine.

    Why do I continue to get ignored on all of my posts? Eliminating the TB/ECU means you have no timing source to fire the plugs on a 2013+ V7.

    So there is no crank / cam angle sensor you could use / tap into to get your timing to feed a electronic ignition ?
    Well that’s a fly in the ointment !

    Cam sensor only. Not saying it can't be done, but certainly a huge project. The 15M ECU with dual throttle bodies makes for an easy conversion as you can leave everything in place to handle spark.

    Probably because he doesn't want to accept the facts. Doesn't realize that if he wants carbs, he should have purchased a bike that comes with them.

    Sorry 'bout that! No, I didn't ignore you. That bit slid right past me, unnoticed.

    Oh well, alas and alack, that idea is put to rest then :cry:.
