What is difference between carburetor and fuel injection systems?

1 Answers

In carburetors fuel supply system the air intake is through the air filter and the fuel intake comes in from the fuel tank. The air and fuel mix together in a set ratio and then passes to the combustion chamber for burning and production of power and when the throttle is twisted, the air flow to the carburetor is increased which causes a swoosh of sucking force and hence the fuel delivery is increase providing acceleration.

In Fuel Injection system the fuel supply is systematic and works on a lot of sensors. The fuel injection nozzle is provided directly in the combustion chamber. The air intake is measured by the air sensor location inside. There is a pressure pump which pressurizes the fuel which allows it to be atomized and hence inside the combustion chamber, the spray is in the form of a mist which allows for complete and cleaner combustion. The fuel supply is controlled by the ECU which is the computer controlling all the electronics of the bike.

Yes, fuel injection system helps to get better mileage and performance due to fuel atomization and optimum fuel delivery.
