Controller number two replacing the first one that i ruined.
=pulling the hall and phase wires, fishing, from the bottom hole to the top, oval hole, was the hard part.
just completed wire connections of the hard wired *cut off the quick connectors at the controller end
: three throttle wires and six cycle analyst wires needed to be soldered and sealed: reason: totally waterproof, and non-fugly,
just a pain to change.
shrink tubing with undercoat of silicone rubber = more water seal against the remote possibility of stray, tiny currents; plenty of slack wire: all this will tuck into the lower tube of the frame,
and a piece of corrugated, black wire loom of split-sleeve plastic will make it look just neat.
Just got this picture, blurry, just as the last connection of lower end, controller end was made.
it looks a mess. the rain suddenly started. i wanted to begin to show the final wiring anyway.
More pictures will follow in this posting form later, very soon. the bike should run tomorrow,
and then refinements of odds and ends will be taken care of. Check in later if you like; I'll alter the page 1 title when things happen.temporary picture of a rat's nest...to be replaced with a sharper picture soon
The controller is loosely duct taped out of the way, taped to the semi-permanently-mounted backplate of the little controller.
When the wires are all stuffed into the tube and the controller case fitted, there will be an air gap around its perimeter;
will let water in, warm air out, etc.
It's pouring rain outside. i cannot see to solder properly indoors. More later; off to drown kittens at the animal shelter (kidding!)
