Slavens Mule Quickstart Capacitor
The all new Slavens Mule Quickstart Capacitor allows to you kick or bump start your electric start, fuel injected KTM, Husqvarna, Husaberg or `21+ Gas Gas if the battery is dead. It’s actually resolves an electrical noise problem, and the capacitor is just a noise filter. The alternator is horrendously noisy, so much that the bikes electrical system will not operate properly without a filter of some sort to smooth out the voltage. A properly working battery makes an excellent low frequency noise filter as does a capacitor. A weak battery can still be a good-enough noise filter, which is why a bike with an almost-dead battery will often kick or bump start just fine. But a battery that is dead as a brick is not a good filter, which is why a bike with a brick-dead battery will not kick/bump start.
If you forget to turn off your GPS, unplug your TPI dongle or if you used the kill button to kill the engine and forget to turn off the switch, your day has turned for the worse. Sometimes batteries just fail for no good reason. Whatever the reason, a dead battery means a dead bike. Don’t get stranded! With the Slavens Mule Quickstart Capacitor installed you can easily kick or bump start your bike and get back on your way.
- Bump starting is the preferred method and it will start easier than with the kickstarter
- Enables kick or bump starting when the battery is dead (or removed) on an electric start, fuel injected bike
- 50V* 10,000μF capacitor
- Rubber coated for abrasion protection and water resistance
- Shrink wrap connectors for corrosion protection
- In-line fuse so you don’t burn down your bike
- Headlight must be off to start
- Electric start will NOT work if the battery is dead even with the Quickstart Capacitor installed
- After starting, the engine will run normally even if the battery is completely dead or removed
- Designed and assembled in the U.S.A.
- Be sure to connect the red wire to the positive (+) terminal and the black wire to the negative/ground (-) terminal of the battery.
- The capacitor stores a charge internally once connected to the battery. When removing be sure to safely discharge and avoid shorting the terminals.
The below screenshot is after one kick WITHOUT the battery or capacitor connected. The voltage bounces between 0V and 20V. It’s clear why the electrical systems cannot function properly to start the bike.
The below screenshot is after one kick without the battery connected but WITH the capacitor connected. The voltage is smoothed enough for the electrical systems to function and for the bike to start. With the capacitor connected the bike started with one kick.
