Tim at powerpackmotors is a good place to get the controller from, he
is a very reasonable guy and will ship them cheaply as well, my
controller has been working great for over a year running daily at 48V
hasnt missed a beat.
You cant repair the potted controllers, once they go, they go, its not
hard to remove the controller if you follow my instructions, the 20A
controller is nice and small you could bolt that to the outside of the
motor lid its so small, the 35A controller is a little bigger, you
should find space for it somewhere.
If you keep the volts down to 48 and the current at 35A it is a great
mix of power and performance, I upped the volts to 60V for a week but
it was too much and the rotor magnet cracked in half, so I keep the
power down on them, 48V on your bike would be good for 30mph.
As far as the cyclone motors go, you can also do the same to them,
Tony from electrodrive has connected a xlyte controller to one of them
and was also looking at an adaptor to mate a Kol or BMC to one of them.
The little KOL motor is great above 24V, if you are sticking to the
28V battery you cant use the 36-72V controller because of the LV cut
off, Tim stocks the 24-48V controllers, it is possible to run these
controllers at 72V as well however Tim does not warranty that.
The Kol is a great motor you would do well to stick with it, however
you will be amazed just how much more fun you can have even if you
drop in just 12 more volts. If you need anymore help on how to do it
including wiring diagrams etc just drop me a line.
