.I got my 5304 from Maxwell65 and he says he did not ask for thicker gauge wire, that is just how they cam.
Kenny supplied me with more of the same wire, and I only just installed it back on my motor.
I did not like the idea of having a big plug of andersons on the outside of the frame, no matter how easy it makes the wheel removal.
I have fitted wire in one length direct to the controller, so I have only one connector neat the controller.
Yes, OK, there is the argument that you take a bigger wire from motor to controler to reduce voltage drop along a lenght of wire, but I am of the opinion that I will probably get less voltage drop with a single length and one junction from a single connection, than having two connections and a 2 ft length of thicker wire.
This is the spec of the wire he sent out
49 strand conductor:
0.1060 inch 2.69mm
Max 0.0150 inch 0.38mm
Min 0.0125 inch 0.31mm
max O/D 0.1360 3.46mm
min O/D 0.1305 3.30mm
0.0250 inch 0.64mm
Here is the response I got from him when I asked if he had a part number for that wire if I wnated to rder any again
Nice to hear you get the order.
The wire called less resistance 4 mm2 ( square ) for motor.
But it will make things simple if we called it for Crystalyte X5 motor's phase. So we will understand.
So 4mm2 is closer to 11 gauge than 10 gauge, but I am not sure if you would get 10 gauge to fit...it may be just a little to tight
But what ever Kenny calls it, and the size he specs at 4mm2. I know it is as thick as this stuff in 10 Gauge, if not a fraction thicker, as I had some of this on the bike till the 'correct' stuff arrived last week
