Copy the bracket in my picture shown a few post back. It is for a fat bike. In my opinion, the key to a solid installation is the extra flat piece bolted to the left side of the motor. The extra threaded rod also helps but less so than that thin flat with 4 bolts and the 2 little spacers. Doesn't look like much but it works

Has anyone tried using the Cyclone controller with a direct drive motor?

The one we use on our pedicabs (22A continuous) is just a normal generic controller, and so was the full power version we used when prototyping. I think they'll work on any BLDC motor with Hall sensors. That said, I haven't hooked one up to a hub motor to find out for sure.
This is to express my gratitude to Justin of Grin Technologies for his extraordinary measures to save this forum for the benefit of all.

Current voltage is 52-61V range 15S is too fast (on my 4T mxus 3kw), and it eats wh/km on high throttle. Resoldering pack to 42V 10S will give me 50% more range and slow me down :twisted:

Does anyone know the "Rshunt value" of the stock 3000w controller from cyclone is? I need to enter this information into the Cycle Analyst set up menu. Im using the Grin external shunt with Cycle Analyst plug in between the controller and battery. Thx
Anyone know this? Or if not..what should i enter in the Cycle analyst menu for shunt value?

CA value... 3000 shunts can be modified

Hi Markz,

yes, some time ago I did use the OEM 40 amp Cyclone controller with a 9C 1000 watt @ 48v hub motor as these controllers are quite cheap and reliable. There was one minor quirk of which I have forgotten, but it was resolvable. I may have posted something on this thread site about a year & half ago regarding the use of the controller for that purpose.

Here is a photo of that adaption:
