We discuss the collider phenomenology of the model of Minimal Universal Extra
Dimensions (MUED) at the Large hadron Collider (LHC). We derive analytical results for
all relevant strong pair-production processes of two level 1 Kaluza-Klein partners and use them to validate and correct the existing MUED implementation in the fortran version of the Pythia event generator. We also develop a new implementation of the model in the C++ version of Pythia. We use our implementations in conjunction with the Checkmate package to derive the LHC limits on MUED from a large number of published experimental analyses from Run 1 at the LHC.
