What speed do you travel at? And what voltage does 24s of A123 come out as? Using the 74v that you cut out at, it looks like you're consuming around 50wh/mile. If you're shifting (35+) then its reasonable, but if you're only doing 25 or so, then its high.
Edit: just seen that you've switch halls, but not phase. Now I dont know if this applies to your crystalite hub but when I went to a Lyen contoller I had to switch the green and yellow halls, AND the green and yellow phase before it would work properly. This is a 9c though....
Actually, just came up from the shop after checking no load - motor peaks at 5A no load, but settles down to 3.93A @ WOT.
My lifetime average speed on this bike is 25mph, but I usually ride at a continuous 27-31mph.
24s fully charged is 87.6V, 79V nominal.
I will switch up the phase wires as indicated and report back.
I still don't see how this would affect the LVC cut off, unless it is sagging cells faster than the CA can read v min.
