    Been searching on Karls post. Lead me to the canister removal and yes this looks liable. Either undo the SAI via the Tune Ecu or put in an 33 ohm resistor.

    Thanks.

    Hi again

    After some help from the OC in the TuneEcu, I took one more step a head. Computer and ECU connected fast and got me to fiddle with the details. All i want was to load the RC8R(all years)map and shut off the O2 and SAI(SAS). After that i restarted and deleted all the faults. Now i only get a faulty MAP sensor. We did cross check the sensor with the other one and still get the same fault...on the same plug?! hmm...wiring fun.

    Today i put in some work to get the bike start. No it didn´t start.

    EFI: 9 short flashes(MAP)

    Immobiliser: 2 short, 1 long(immobiliser not activated).

    I have never heard of any procedures to activate the immobiliser? Is it not ON allways? From the procedures i can read in the manual, i can only activate my 2 black keys.

    Question of the day. Can i "train" activate an de-activated key?

    Nothing else has happened beside my reworked suspension is coming in from Mr Poskitt. Then i have a rolling chassis again. December should bring time to get the exhaust done.

    Hey locul,

    I have a great solution for your efi woes. Ditch the fuel injection and slap some fcr's on that bitch.

    Long legged update.

    Got my support package from Mr Pyndon. Really don´t have the time for it and the garage is freezing.
    I´m soon off work for almost 4 weeks. There should be time to achieve some lost goals. Denmark is actually covered in snow. Valja loves it, she hasn´t seen much snow in her life.

    Package arrived.

    Just need the rear shock mounted though it is a bit difficult. Probably need to take of the rear frame. Time will tell. I´m stoked. This have been my dream from the start to have some real (imho) racing pedigree mounted. 320mm is in my world and have always been unobtanium. Thanks for making it possible Pyndon.

    Now i still have the problem with this shitty immobiliser. How the hell do i activate an immobiliser. Is it not activated when paired with the said ecu? I still get 2 short, 1 sec, 1 short blink. I´m pretty sure that is my last stand in my efforts to start this franken-scooter.

    Updates will follow.

    Man I tried every way in the world to justify that suspension and have it shipped over here but I just couldn't do it. Look sweet. Glad it went to someone that will use it.

    On my RC8 I think there is a master key that is orange and this is what's used to "activate" the chips in the keys.

    That or your not supposed to let the orange and black keys touch.

    Something like that. I just woke up.

    Let me dig around outside and see if I have my manual. It should say.

    I´m all aware of this orange/black system. Immobilizer unit looks like this.
    [​IMG]

    I thought of it as an plug´n play thingy, but hey i thought that about the RC8 in a LC8 frame...sheees:1drink

    The other day i had a chance to talk with the plastic welder and his all ready when i am. Uhhhhh exciting.

    cheers

    Obviously I want to see you get the full FI system working on your RC8 as that was your goal and I'm sure you'll get it eventually but if you do throw in the towel you know there's a nicely sorted carb option - you just need the 950 harness. That is just a last resort of course. Stay on the imobilizer - you'll get it.

    Funny you said it, just thought of it today in a moment. Used some googlefoo and got a measure on how much 72ish cui would need. Ca 211 cfm at 10.000rpm and then i got lost. I think i would need the cfm to measure the size of the carb. The throttle bodies on the RC8 is 52mm. Could i just copy/paste those?

    Yeah, that's the beauty of injection. Almost limitless air and infinite mapping... Once you get past that pesky immobilizer!
    You'll get it and when you do it will be just silly power. :evil

    May be able to fire off an email to KTM Twins or KTM themselves and just ask. Tell them what you are building and just see what they say.




    EDIT: someone on another forum had to reset his immobilizer on his RC8 and the process was turning the orange key on and off 5 times. Said it worked for him.

    Silly power is defined by how Gino´s face looks in your thread.

    Last suspension got sorted this evening. Sheeees its tall.

    Had to sort out the rear. The longer reservoir meant that i needed to lift the subframe.

    All the powder coating is good, but makes a tight fit. Rubber mallet and its on.

    Yay

    How come you moved the subframe to get the rear in? Mine was a direct remove / replace once the mud guard was removed.
    Have you routed the rear exh headers yet? It's a tight fit with the swingarm being angled further down

    I think its because the shock has been modified - in addition to the longer travel, the reservoir is longer...
