The overall width of an RMP200 ATV (and RMP400) is 31” with a track width of 24” (centerline to centerline) and an approximate tire contact patch width of about 4”. Turf tires would have the same overall width and track width but a slightly larger tire contact patch width at about 5” (and consequent...

Can turf tires be used on an RMP 200 ATV?

They will mostly work. If you spin around in place for a long time, the machine will start to drift forward/backward from the reference position.

Why are the battery charging indicator lights always off?

Look at the charge port on the UI box to ensure that the three pins are present. It is possible that one of the pins got pushed in and is no longer seated properly in the connector housing. It may be possible to seat the contact pin back into the housing from inside the UI box if you are willing to ...

Why doesn’t the RMI Demo USB dialog box give any status info

Make sure the USB cable is plugged into the RMP and the controlling computer prior to launching the RMI Demo and before powering on the RMP. If the RMP doesn't see a USB host on power up, it switches to the CAN interface and disables the USB interface. If the RMP is shutdown or the USB is disconnect...

Why does the RMI Demo software say “no devices present”?

Make sure you have installed the USB device driver for each UI/base you are planning to use and restart RMP Demo AFTER devices have been successfully recognized.

Therefore, it can be obtained from Kvaser, either by downloading and installing the Kvaser drivers for the particular piece of Kvaser hardware, or by contacting Kvaser’s technica...

How do I communicate with an RMP?

The RMP communicates via one of two serial communications bus protocols, USB or CAN. The choice of protocol is left to the user. In general, most users find that CAN bus provides the most deterministic control of the RMP. With USB, the choice of operating system and the setup of the device driver wi...
