Re: Suzuki RF400E, now with Enertrac MHM602

I got a semi-cheap H4 LED headlight, fitting was a breeze - no tools required ;). US$ 7 on Banggood The light pattern is more than OK, there's a clear cutoff, no glare, just an area that's not lighted directly in front of the bike. I'm not sure if that's good or bad, will report if I ever ride outsi...

Re: Electric Motorcycle Parts Help!

Check out some other builds on EV album: http://evalbum.com/type/MTCY.
And please, no lead. AESC / Nissan LEAF modules are plentiful, other OEM's might fit even better. 18650 if you have too much time on your hands ;).

Re: Suzuki RF400E, now with Enertrac MHM602

I spent some time replacing the insert that's plugging the hole the filler cap left (with PP/"corruboard") and spent some time sanding/de-rusting the inner part of the tank:

[EU] Kelly/ZJW 200A/12V contactor & GEFRAN GS40A SSR

Both items are used, I got them with a set of which I used the controller, motor and cabling The contactor weighs about 700g, so I'd prefer shipping within the EU (€9.00, yes, that includes UK :)), but worldwide is only €12.25. Details can be found on the Kelly site . I'd like €30. The SSR weighs 20...

Yep, 2 actually :D. I blew the DC/DC on the one board I had working :(. That's the long-term plan (and why I passed on the bigger Kelly above). At the moment I am getting the secondary functions on the bike sorted as it's my daily driver - weather protection, heated grips & other conveniences, put t...

Re: 1970 Vespa 50s electrification project

Glad that what I found works out for you! One note on the connectors, I use the waterproof ones liberally (on the car as well). I think they are Tyco knockoffs. 15 sets are less than $7. Flat pliers work, but long term you'd want a crimp tool, I have something similar to these . Edit: in 1 and 2 pin...

Kellys work best fully isolated, so I'm using a relay to trigger the 5V from the 12V brake input.

[..] I wish this all made a little more sense than it does at the moment, you're saying you want to control the rear brake independently of the front. Did you have one common pedal for front and rear? Sorry that I haven't pressed your links yet, maybe if I read through yopur posts I would have unde...

You can always send it back:).
Seriously, try to stay safe, at least add a NC relay that opens the throttle on the brake light being activated.

I tried to use 2 80100s in my project, they kind of worked through the gearbox, 24s is just pushing the 4110 controllers too far. Check my thread to see how not to do it :D :pancake: (switched to big Enertrac hub now). I might be willing to part with one - already set up with internal halls, Kv 70 W...

Re: 1970 Vespa 50s electrification project

Shiny equipment there mate. :D My thinking is that I want to be able to control the rear brake independently from the front, thus the disconnect. With the weight in the hub (potential) rear braking force will be stronger than before, so I want strong regen to help the smaller rear caliper. See my th...

Thanks mate. I'll need the bike for commuting (as my VFR got stolen - decided not to buy a petrol bike again :)). Thus the "cleanup" jobs as above.
