I was told some time ago that the stock injectors for the X-1's etc(I am assuming you meant X-1,not S-1) were from a small Ford 4 cylinder car like a Focus, and you could use an injector from another Ford like a V-6 Taurus, in place for more flow.
The Buell tech who had done this swap is not around any more,so cannot pick his brain. He told me he cross referenced the stock injector # on a Walbro site. Or we can hope we have a Ford nut around here.
You could replace fuel pump with a higher pressure one for more flow.
I ended up with an aftermarket throttle body and have not sourced injectors as yet.

For the record, stock injectors are approx 300 cc injectors, made by seimens and high impedance. here at least , they are quite hard to find in larger flow rates and stay that size, and stock injectors are angled to spray into the cylinder heads better (this a good thing). Just take em somewhere n drill em, Mine now flow 430 cc's and fuel my turbo xb.If i can pull out the fuel pump....... I am hoping to get a flow test on that.As for the fuel pressure reg on the buell i can only assume that its the job of the adaptive fuel value doohickie?. I drilled my rail , placed a pressure reg there, and drilled my throttle body to actually score some vacuum points under the throttle plate. It is a bumpy ride buildin turbos out of these things but worth it. And as for hellbender... I will beat it yet.
