Get to know Honda`s first motorbike to adopt an injection system and how to maintain it


PT Astra Honda Motor (AHM) has equipped its line of automatic scooter products with PGM-FI (Programmed Fuel Injection) technology which is a typical injection system for Honda motorbikes

This technology is a fuel supply system that is controlled electronically so that it is able to supply fuel and oxygen optimally according to the engine’s needs in each situation.

But on what motorbike was Honda’s injection system actually first used? It turns out that Honda’s injection system itself has been developed since 1981.

The Honda CX500 Turbo is the first model to have the opportunity to embrace innovation from this Japanese automotive company.

Meanwhile, Honda’s injection technology was first embedded in the Supra X 125 PGM-Fi, in 2005.

Illustration of the Honda Supra Spacy was released in 2011. There are four advantages of PGM-FI Technology, namely environmentally friendly, fuel efficient, powerful, and easy maintenance.

The official AHM website explains that PGM-FI technology is supported for optimal results such as ECM (Engine Control Module), injector, fuel pump, Throttle Position Sensor (TPS), Intake Air Temperature (IAT), Manifold Air Pressure (MAP), Engine Oil Temperature (EOT) and O2 Sensor.

When the ignition key is turned to the ON position, the fuel pump immediately works for about 2 seconds to provide pressure through the fuel hose. Then when the electric starter switch is pressed, these sensors will provide input to the ECM.

Overall, the way the Honda injection system works is controlled by the ECM based on input from sensors, thereby making the motorbike have better performance, fuel efficiency and environmental friendliness.

Wahana provides a guarantee in accordance with the standards applicable to Astra Honda Motor via 308 AHASS in Jakarta Tangerang. [Wahana]. If there is a problem with the PGM-FI system, the motorbike will provide information to the owner via the MIL indicator light.

PGM-FI Injection System Maintenance

1. Using High Octane Fuel

Using fuel with 90 octane and above is one of the simplest ways to maintain an injection motorbike. The use of high-octane fuel can improve combustion in a motorbike engine. Never use low quality fuel because it can cause damage to engine components.

2. Change the oil regularly

Changing the oil regularly is also an important thing that should not be missed when maintaining an injection motorbike. Change the oil every two months or when the motorbike has traveled 1,000 km. Also avoid motorbike engines that lack lubricant (dry) because this will disrupt engine performance.

3. Checking the Battery Condition

Don’t just pay attention to your partner, the condition of your motorbike battery is also important to pay attention to, guys! Motorcycles with injection technology are very dependent on the condition of the battery to start the engine in the combustion system. So, if you have an injection motorbike, make sure to always check the condition of the motorbike battery!

4. Caring for Spark Plugs

Apart from the battery, you also need to pay attention to the condition of the spark plugs. Spark plugs are ignition starters that are important for the combustion process in the engine. Therefore, it is important to check the spark plugs regularly to maximize combustion in the engine. If the spark plug is damaged, the combustion process in the engine is not perfect so the engine is less powerful and the motorbike cannot start. So, if your motorbike’s spark plugs are no longer producing maximum fire, it’s best to replace them with new ones!

5. Checking the Condition of the ECU

The Electronic Control Unit (ECU) is the brain of the operation of the injection system on the motorbike. The ECU regulates the entire injector unit, whether the amount of fuel sprayed or opening and closing the injector valve. If this system is disrupted, the injector’s performance will not work perfectly and the motor will break down. So, make sure to always pay attention to the condition of your motorbike’s ECU so that the motorbike’s performance remains optimal.

6. Carrying out regular servicing

Carrying out regular servicing is a very important way to maintain the condition of an injection motorbike so that it remains in top condition, at least once every three months. Try to service your injection motorbike at an official place with established standards.

For more optimal maintenance, it can be taken to the entire official Honda AHASS repair shop network throughout Indonesia. That’s how to maintain the Honda injection system so that the motorbike lasts longer.
