The Perm motor let go of one of its armature clips, I suspect because of poor constuction. It seems the offending clip was not soldered properly in place.
THough the Perm is repairable, I have replaced it with a reinforced AgniMotor, that Cedric Lynch assures me will manage close to 20HP continuous and 40HP peak.
So far its working very well indeed, it is noticeably more efficient than the Perm motor, I get slightly better accelleration than before, with the same top speed (80mph).
Right now, I am contemplating what to do next, either add a second motor to the Aprillia, and take voltage up to 90v (Agnimotor is good to 6000rpm), or, start prepping the DUcati Supersport that is sitting in the workshop for dual motors and leave the aprilia as is. In any case, I will be rebuilding the aprilia's battery boxes with alluminium, and tidying the wiring. At some point Teh Jozzbike must be sold on to pay for the next project....
Cant remember if this video has been posted here... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WMaI73hSv7I
Interview with Andy Marsh a couple of months ago.
