Re: Knight Electric Motorcycle 5000w

So I asked the vendor to send the speedometer with MPH and not KPH just to make sure, also checking lead time...and this is their reply to me Hi Each Bike is Customed made at time of Order by Manufacturer. It takes about a week and a 1/2. Then it is shipped, by the Asian Manufacturer and usually tak...

Re: Knight Electric Motorcycle 5000w

Re: Knight Electric Motorcycle 5000w

Found the first US video of one of these full size bikes!

Re: Knight Electric Motorcycle 5000w

Here is some info on the tire sizes and their effective diameters for calc purposed You can see the rear diameter on the right hand side, then a larger tire size option to the left if you choose to add more weight and rolling mass for more top speed also you need to make sure your rim can handle a w...

Re: Knight Electric Motorcycle 5000w

Got a couple extremely random pics and videos of similar bikes popping up all over the place and some info on their components Here is a Vid of the DP-Ninja which came out same day as the SLA version, looks pretty close to the size of a 250 street bike, hard to tell still by the person moving out of...

Only seeing smaller 2000W bikes in their for-sale section right now -- could they have taken them down? Ya this is pretty sketchy, they also wont answer any questions since payment was submitted. They said they would send information and post more bikes soon but who knows either way I used Paypal t...

Re: Knight Electric Motorcycle 5000w

What an odd key location! Those fork tubes look super skinny, I wonder about the seat height? Maybe this bike is smaller than it looks? Honda Grom size? I too have been looking into the dual sport electric conversion. I'm thinking a KTM with blown motor or even a DRZ400 would make a good platform. ...

Re: Nova Cruz Voloci Re-vamp

Maybe dumb question, but did you strip the insulation off the phase wires before putting them in the terminal block? Those are enamel coated copper and sort of a pain to strip. You might get contact without stripping them, but you might get a high resistance and heating under load. I didn't notice ...

Re: Nova Cruz Voloci Re-vamp

Single-sensor hall throttles output a range usually from just under a volt to just around 4v, typically. Most of the common ebike controllers are designed around this range. Some hall throttles may use a different voltage range, but the majority of the ebike ones are this way. Kelly controllers (at...

Re: Nova Cruz Voloci Re-vamp

You might want to check the stock Voloci throttle output Voltage. It seems to me that they have ONE Hall Sensor that puts out about half of the 5V. Since Nova Cruz/Voloci made their own controller, they could use any Voltage they wanted. Maybe Halls were expensive back in 2001? The Kelly controller...

Hopefully those are not the actual photos of the items being shipped to the USA.
Without mirrors and DOT turn signals it would not pass.
I can see the directionals and mirror spots, I've purchased a Ebay china gas bike before and had no issued getting it on the road

Re: Knight Electric Motorcycle 5000w

I just confirmed with the vendor total vehicle weight is 120kg or 265 pounds which is not too bad considering the SLA must be most of the weight 12v 32ah are $50-75 each being 25lbs each times 6x = 150lbs in battery weight. And the batteries seem to all have a 1 year warranty so that's more than lik...

Knight Electric Motorcycle 5000w

Looks like a new motorcycle just popped up on Ebay at a pretty low price. Seems pretty sketchy so far since they spell Knight two different ways I see Night also in some places. But lots of people are looking for a cheap road legal solution and it looks like it will pass USA DOT https://lh3.googleus...

Wow, that really looks like a lot of work. Losing magnets was a common failure mode, especially if run at higher than 48v. Hey fetcher looks like each hall has a blue and a green going to it. The green is in the center of the hall. Which do you think is pos and neg? EDIT: center is negative so Grn ...
