IIRC the January 2002 issue of Circuit Cellar magazine had an article about home-brew fuel injection.

To run the ecu you would need to convert the rotary spark generator to become the crank position sensor, install a separate ignition system to make the spark instead, fit a fuel pump and replace the carb for a throttle body (replaces the carb and has the fuel injector installed in it)...you would have to do the tuning yourself to get the spark in the right time and then build a fuel map to deliver the right amount of fuel at the right revs and engine load.. I to am looking into this and thinking a single cylinder motorbike efi might be easier to convert and cheaper too
