Found this on AliExpress:

I might give it a try for that price (US$265). Looks like the software is open source too, so tweeking it for engine mods should be possible.

That kit looks really complete. Installing that efi kit would be a lot more fun than cleaning out your old carb.

An added cost and complication is the requirement for an 11-pole alternator if your engine doesn't already have one. EFI systems can be power hungry. Another thing to consider is that more than likely it would render the kickstarter useless.

It's incomplete, but it's a starting point:
