Back in October I got hit by a car while riding my bike home from work, my bike has been out of commission since. Still dealing with insurance from that, and I need to get surgery on my knee from that accident.
That kinda took the steam out of me when I was trying to get started on a new project... I want to build a reasonable performance electric motorcycle with a very good range, and nice top speed.
I managed to snag a nearly perfect Ninja 250 for $800.
I have mostly built 2x 12 fet 4115 controllers ready for 150v, and have all the parts for 2x 36 fet controllers with 4115's set up for 150v max operation.
I was wanting to do a 36s lipo battery pack using nanotech's, and batch charging with meanwells.
I was originally thinking that I should use two hub motors, lace them into wheels, out them on the front and rear and hope to hell I can make the brakes work with them :p. I even bought two 9c motors to do this with. That was a bad idea now that I think about it lol.
Here are some key points that I would like to outline, or I need help with:
- I would like to stick with 36s and utilize the 2x 36 fet controllers I will build
- I want to stick with a BLDC motor
- I think a central motor driving through the chain is the best bet, but would like your thoughts/suggestions on that.
- Should I use the transmission, or try and directly attach the motor to the chain?
- What motor would you suggest for me to use? Could I split the windings to effectively use both of the controllers on a single motor?
I would appreciate any advice or guidance you could give, and I would like to say that it's really good to be back on the forum!
