Re: Discussions aren't the same quality without Chalo

Chalo also had a low opinion of car drivers, but if I was a cycling enthusiast living in Texas I probably would too. Rix, I agree with you - an MC rim on a MX bike needs thicker spokes than a bicycle. The traditional trap that I thought Chalo must have been referring to was putting thick spokes in ...

it IS exactly 10kph when you switch from 14/100 to 12/100
@CD, I see Merlin answered the reason why for my questions to you. I guy my size would gladly sacrifice a 6MPH in top speed to get faster acceleration and hill climbing improvement.

Re: E-S LMX 64 Bike Owners

Nice one Adam, thanks for the update. I haven't been able to ride my 64 much lately :( and I still haven't figured out why it's slower since the belt kit install. Is it possible you sent me a larger rear sprocket than standard? Can anyone post a photo of their Nucular motor config page for me to co...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

I've lost my desire to buy a Sur Ron. The problem with it is it looks too much like a motorcycle to ride on the street without registration, and then you can't ride it on the city bike paths. All things considered my Bomber is better suited for the riding I do. The only thing that's bugging me is m...

Re: Discussions aren't the same quality without Chalo

I cant tell you how many discussion I had about the size of Spoke Diameters correlating with wheel strength and how Chalo would argue my comments saying spoke size had nothing to do with wheel strength because the strength of the wheel was based on spoke tension and how good the wheel builder built...

Re: E-S LMX 64 Bike Owners

Nice one Simon! I gotta say, the blue looks awesome...but I would :P Did yours come with a front chain-ring or did you put one on already? So much for waiting for the belt before diving in, but I get it, it's just too hard to wait sometimes. The hard part is going to be waiting to ride it while you...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

So 5403 with the 19” rim, only took me 6 months, Pretty excited actually unlaced the old motor last night, tempted to put holes in it, sand it back repowdercoat or better yet the satin/ gritty finish that’s on the UFO K I did run 5403, 5404, and 5405 along with TC4080, TC4065, TC3080 and a TC3065 a...

Why not un-ban Chalo and ask if he would like to be a moderator? He is pretty good at typing thoughts. People's behavior sometimes improves when they have to set an example for others to follow. Wonder if Trump is trying to improve his behavior?
This could also be a disaster. But you never know.

Anyone know the pole count for the UFO? CA says I tapped out at 231km/hr lol. Max amps up from normally 74-75 to 76.55A While I was in there I beefed up a couple of traces on the earth side and main power + side where there was a gap between the input power DC wire and the wire that’s layed among t...

I read on another thread he was 86'd from ES. No time limit was specified, but I get the impression it may be for awhile.

This Bomber above now need a V-Boxx service or maybe a new V-Boxx. What's your advice to buy a new V-Boxx? Some time ago I read that Mammuth from Russia may sell it but I contacted them without any reply.
Or does Stealth bike sell replacements for V-Boxx?
Fratello mio! Whats your Vboxx doing?

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Got it from Luna direct. Its under some kind of warranty for sure, I don't want to touch it and screw that up. I will get it working, just a matter of time. I would be willing to bet its one of the protection sensors, which as I'm sure you know are on the (1) breaks, (2) tilt and (3) kickstand. I w...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Does it show any errors in display? (the harness is for diagnostic stuff) but AFAIK you can't use by yourself. There's also a crash sensor. But before you disassemble the bike to disconnect stuff for testing where did you bought? It's new with 0 miles. Your dealer should help? Got it from Luna dire...

I readjusted to a looser tension,just a little give in the chain now.Its a little cooler and less noisy .
Glad to hear it, I did the same on my SurRon and it made a noticeable difference, not just in noise, but less drag when off the throttle coasting.
