I was referring at fuel injection rather than power.
Thing is these small engines are tuned very much for power to offset their small capacity.

Numbers are difficult to come by : we're avant-garde here :-)

I just fed .28 into the calculator instead of the standard .22 for engine efficiency and yes you're quite right , about a 24% decrease in fuel consumption ! I wish the Innova was available here !

You can maybe use e-bay to buy used parts ?

Also there are some injection kits for motorcycle available online from the US that we discussed here.

FI is on my wish list too :-)

Would you have a link to anything like that, especially for a 110cc engine ? I've read a little bit about FI and it would need to be amazingly simple to fit for me to have a chance !

I've been looking at the Ecotrons website , is this what you were talking about ? It looked possible .

Not sure how it would compare to the OEM system fitted to the current Hondas, but sounds good.

What kind of power increase would you expect with an Ecotrons FI over a carb ? Is 25% realistic ?

No you can't expect a big power boost. You can expect an economy boost (depending on driving style) as carbs, especially on bikes, seem to be excessively rich on the low and high end. Plus FI helps enable realtime fuel consumption feedback, so you CAN adjust your driving style.
