A simple low cost must-do mod for any KTM /Husky enduro dirtbike
The Taco Moto Co. start / run capacitor solves this problem.
Baja Tested and Baja proven. We've raced with these in the Baja 1000 and had them save us the drama of pushing or towing bikes out of the back country from Baja to Canada and everywhere in between.
- Allows the bike to be push or kick started
- Acts as a mini solid state battery that allows the ecu and injector to be powered until the engine is running
- Install it on the battery and forget it's even there
- Protected for a lifetime with marine grade double wall ultra thick glue lined heat shrink for the ultimate durability and protection
- The ultimate failsafe against a dead battery from leaving a GPS on overnight
- Acts as a noise filter on the DC side of the charging system to help smooth out charging system power fluctuations and performance
- Made in the USA
- Lifetime warranty
What Is a Capacitor?
A capacitor is similar to a battery in that it stores energy between plates. Unlike a battery, the charge is stored directly as a difference in voltage (called an electrostatic field) and doesn’t require a chemical reaction to release energy. As such, capacitors can release large amounts of energy very quickly, whereas a battery releases energy at a slower rate. Another way to look at the difference between the two is that a battery is intended to be a source of energy, whereas a capacitor is used to store energy for a short period of time. Access to an immediately available small burst of power is needed to run the ecu and fuel injector in the event of a complete battery failure.
Secure the capacitor to the positive and negative battery terminals then using the included tie strap secure the capacitor to the frame or other structure of the bike.
Any fuel injected four-stroke or two-stroke enduro KTM or Husqvarna dirt bike. These are bikes with a headlight and kickstand
Warning- Charged capacitors can be dangerous and the terminal ends should not be touched with the hands or shorted together. discharge with a 12V light bulb or by allowing it to site overnight
