Can a 2 stroke engine be fuel injected?
The holy grail of off-road motorcycling is a reliable, high-performance, fuel-injected two-stroke engine with optimized combustion so unburned fuel doesn’t foul exhaust fumes so horribly.
How does a fuel injected 2 stroke engine work?
Fuel is squirted into the cylinder via two injectors in the transfer ports, rather than into the inlet port or head. The oil tank inlet is behind the steering-head, from where the lube runs through the frame to a reservoir and pump below the seat. Maintenance is just as simple as a carby two-stroke.

Do they still make 2-stroke engines?
However, concern for more environmentally friendly performance grew and 4-stroke engines are now the norm because they inherently have better fuel economy and less exhaust smoke. As of 2019, the only 2-stroke motorcycles Yamaha makes are for closed-course competition and some models for export.
When did KTM 300 get fuel injection?
