This week we wired up a Haltech Elite 550 tunable ECU to our KTM LC8 powered Power Wheels Jeep www.haltech.com/product-category/universal-ecu-kits/elite-550/
We did the install at SMS Auto and Marine in Sandpoint Idaho and now we are closer than ever to having a running 4WD power house!
For every 1,000 views this video receives we will be donating $5 to Feeding America and eBay Motors will be doubling that money up to $5,000. That is potentially $10,000 for a great cause so share this video and we will be live streaming the donation Saturday April 11th.

Liked and shared on fb. Just an idea. 3D print a new hood and intake so that they meet up with a little functioning scoop. (Maybe a 6x8 or so flat filter laying horizontally under the scoop)

Did you intentionally block the crank case vent(s)? Without either a PCV or road draft tube, you're going to have crank seal leaks, and it will play hell with your closed loop A/F metering.

those are not choke valves, those are secondary butterflies, for low end torque application.

RE : the no start condition and new wiring, did you take into account the "tip over sensor" or lack of which is normally mounted behind the headlight mask or is all this bypassed with the fresh loom and ecu? Primary TPS could be worth checking aswell. Idle is controlled by the idle speed stepper mounted to the front of the front cylinder (cyl 2 in KTM language), you can do away with the secondary throttle body butterflies by setting them to 100% open all the time via the ecu or unplug the secondary tps and remove the butterflies altogether. Less engine brake. IMO much easier to use a 990 ecu and reinstate certain items. If not, remember set the LC8's warm idle for at least 1450rpm for sufficient oil pressure, get rid of the OEM clutch slave as it leaks everywhere, and rebuild the water pump if it hasn't already been done.

Guys! I really like your work, it's the best on YouTube right now, but you did a mistake in this build which is is okay, everybody makes mistakes from time to time. You need to go back and fix the U-joint phasing, before fhe first test run because this way the vibrations in the drivetrain will destroy itself maybe the engine too.

It's time guys. It's really time. Iv'e just finished watching all of the 146 videos you'vetgot, amazing stuff. What a progression from the start. But you really need to step up with the lighting - in the garage especially. Most of the time when zooming in on details or overall omni-shots of the builds much is just dark and hard to see. A few good ambulating lights and all is well. Your not small potato anymore, your the real deal with appearance on Jay Leno, at almost a mill subs and overall incredibly likable and relatable guys. Its time for LIGHTS. :-)

Love watching y’all! Just a fyi, the intake air temperature sensor is supposed to have air being pulled across it through the intake. I don’t think you’ll have a problem with it just tossing it on there though, just wanted to give you a heads up in case you have any problems with it idling or rough acceleration.

Just a thought on the electronic choke plates - could they actually be related to a traction control system on the original bike? Sort of acting as secondary throttle butterflies to reduce power, given that the main throttle is cable and not ride-by-wire.

I'd make sure the "environmental outlet " that you blocked off with a plate is not the engine's crankcase breather. Because it looks like thats what it is, and blocking it would result in... a weirdly running engine at best, one that leaks from every gasket more likely, and a broken one at worst.

That “exaust/emissions thing” is an pcv valve. It keeps the pressure in your crank case from going up and down when the piston goes up and down. it will run a lot better if you put it back on and hook it to one of your intakes or a catch can.

Pretty sure those vent tubes are crankcase vents. You can go old school and just throw an air filter on them or just route them into your air filter box. It'll probably blow out your dipstick if you block them off. Great video.

are you still getting out of your houses and meeting with people?? because a lot of videos I see of americans, they act practically like nothing major is happening (I'm assuming all this videos were recorded a few weeks ago when things were not so bad)... the numbers are not in your favor and if you don't do anything as a society (because politicians will always prefer that you produce as much as possible and delay the quarantines as much as possible) you will be soon on the top of the board not only in positive cases but also in deaths... i'm surprised on how fast this virus is spreading and how the number of deaths are increasing in your country, so i ask again: are you (people) taking actions to stop this virus from spreading?

I love your work and can't wait to see this project finished but stay at home pls and this is for all of you, it's already too late...
