If Methods order some of these controllers, I will buy one from him, to save on the freight.
My priority and enjoyment has switched from zotting around on an illegal scoot, to enjoying my illegal bikes, which do not seem to draw any heat.
We have started the process of ordering engineering samples. At the moment I am waiting for a different 24 fet controller to land so that I can look it over and complete my list of requests.
I totally agree that a well built electric bike attracts a lot less problem with the law than an illegal scoot.

Right now, the fact that John's son has been getting the loaf-of-bread-sized controller to kick ass on some pretty steep hills.
The Cycle Analyst plugs have also been working, and mine have reverse , cruise, and a power-on switch.
Yea... that is anecdotal data though. There are a lot of variables in that equation. They could just be really good fakes. There are a lot of "pretty good" mostfets that they can print with 4110. I dont think the real weakness of the fets will show up until we start up with the extreme abuse. Remember back in the fb4110 days?
And what is this about the tops of the fets not looking right?
There is only one 4110 fet line and every fet that comes off of it looks identical.
There is no other facility in Asia as was suggested back when we debated this last... so if they do not look identical in every way they are probably fake. Counterfeiting in Asia is like Church here in the US...
As far as the CA... Please check to see if the throttle retard output is hooked to the throttle (through a diode) or the ebrake. I vaguely remember a discussion I had with a customer about this manufacturer following older build documentation on Justins website where he shows the retard line hooking up to ebrake. I asked Justin to take those pictures down and it looks like he has -> So if he is not already hooking them up right I want to get him doing that.
