Ducati 848 and Ducati Paul 1000 Smart Fuel Injector Spray Pattern Comparison
Fast Frank Racing (www.fastfrankracing.com) sent two sets of fuel injectors for service. One pair from an 848 Ducati, and the other pair from a Ducati Paul Smart 1000. It was surprising to see the differences in spray patters of the two pairs of injectors. Although the Paul Smart is a bigger displacement V-twin engine, it does not make the power the liquid cooled 848 makes, and the 848 injectors flowed more ML of fuel. The injectors all look exactly the same, other than the color of bands on the injector body. You can clearly see the importance of fuel injector cleaning service.
The 848 injectors are on the left with the Paul Smart 1000 injectors on the right.
