fuel injection on a carbed bike

when i had my old sv this thought first occurred to me- is it possible to swap carbs for FI on a bike?
like would a 1st gen sv's carbs and wiring harness be able to be removed and replaced with the 2nd gen's FI and harness? would that work? would you also need the tank?
im not planning on doing this any time in the foreseeable future, and this might be dumb of me to ask, but would it be possible, or feasible?

if this is a rwd toronado then forget it

I'm no expert. But I don't think it can be done without major modifications. Think about the fuel pump/filter internals in the 2nd gen tank, how will you transfer them into a 1st gen tank. Additionally, how will injectors be mounted in the 1st gen frame?

i was reading logan5's ad for his race sv. he wants a 2nd gen. it just seems kind of wasteful i guess to have to start all over on a bike just to get one feature the 1st one didnt have.
no disrespect meant to logan. i had a while during some cold and wet times with my sv where i wished it was fuel injected

i am willing to bet wire harness/ecu, FI fuel tank, and throttle bodies with manifolds would work out pretty well. sure it would be some work, but if you are a smart shopper i bet it is cheaper than buying the whole engine...you may also need the ignition coils as well, but i dunno. I have done fuel injection conversions on cars before with all stock parts, though we used an inline fuel pump and plumbed a new fuel return line to make it work.

Full motor swap is easiest way. Other than that, its not worth the head ache.

As already stated, you'd need the throttle bodies, ecu, harness and attendant sensors.
It's really not worth it.
In Logans case he stand s to benefit from a better chassis by going to the 2nd gen SV as well.

/\ lol, I think he is saying just get a new bike, can it be done of course it can, but prolly would bennefit more by just getting a newer injected bike and sell the old one to offset the price difference, Nothing like getting a new bike to ride, kinda like getting a new girl to ride or thats what guys say anyway
