Re: Another Stealth bomber (clone) build

As ElectricGod said, the sabvoton is dead. Pretty disappointing as it was not cheap and only lasted 50 miles. Done crying over it, I sold it to EG cheap as he can use the parts. I've been spending a lot of time looking for controllers and have finally decide on one. Like I mentioned a few posts ago ...

Re: I’M NOT Spot Welding Using Lipo

I'm all for the malectrics or even the JP welder, but it's not in this months budget (EEB project is bleeding me dry). The way I look at it is this; the malectrics needs a 12v battery (or lipo)anyway to run so I'll get that and see if adding a timer, solenoid, and foot switch ($20 in parts) will res...

Re: Another Stealth bomber (clone) build

@electricglider and choppa, thankd for posting the links and your ideas, awesome stuff.Yeah those bearings are super cheap on ebay I'll get some too. I intend to fix this issue on my bike, but I have bigger fish to fry at the moment. Still no word on the sabvoton. So we'll see how it goes as far as ...

Re: Spot Welding Using Lipo

I'm literally doing the exact same thing. I've ordered a solenoid and copper nails, etc to make a cheap spot welder. I remember seeing some good/inexpensive batteries like the one above at Walmart- going to pick one up soon. I thought about the malectrics one as well and may still get it, but I'm on...

Re: Another Stealth bomber (clone) build

@garen yes I bought them together. You're lucky you asked a vendor with a conscience. He/she is right, you can't just hook a tft screen up to any sabvoton as there are different wiring configurations on some of the sabvotons. Mine all connects together with these weird connectors and other models ha...

Re: Another Stealth bomber (clone) build

@choppa, thanks for the pic and info. I have been keeping an eye on the rotor bolts since installing the QS motor and all is intact there. Those mods you're doing should get that tiny bit of play out, my frame has clearanced holes (on the generous side) as well. I pulled my bike apart (swingarm from...

Re: Another Stealth bomber (clone) build

@choppa thanks, I'll have to look into this, because its annoying on bumpy terrain as well. I should be able to find some bearings and cut some shims on the laser. @Jonno, thanks I might drop the back a bit and see what that does. Definitely need get this sorted out. Well, I went for a ride on the t...

Re: Another Stealth bomber (clone) build

@Gstegman thanks man. There are some trails just off that road I'm on, so I might make a few more videos showing how this bike actually is an enduro bike and can be fun in both environments. Pack is made up of 25r cells, 100A BMS and I think they said 120A burst. I'm already thinking about making an...

Re: Sabvaton Power switch & throttle

If you have no luck, open up the controller and look at the ignition wires and see if maybe one of the wires had a bad solder joint on the board or something. Worth a shot.

Re: Sabvaton Power switch & throttle

Hi, sorry you're having issues with the sabvoton. Just to be sure, is the sabvoton throwing any errors? I haven't heard you mention a tft screen, so I'm assuming you dont have one. Did you get the version with the tft screen? If there's an error the LEDs on the sabvoton will blink. Is that going on?...

Re: Noob EEB Enduro Build

Dude wtf! Glad you got your stuff.
They should give you something free. I got a free Gibson lesson Paul (copy) Ace Frehley edition for free because they didn't ship on time, BS tracking, slow response times. So I filed a claim against them and got a full refund. Might be worth a shot.

Re: Another Stealth bomber (clone) build

@krasak84 The forks I have on my bike were purchased from the same vendor that sold me the frame, I wouldn't recommend them. Instead I'd go with something like the one below. That is actually what I plan to buy next for my bike. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Exclusive-DNM-USD-8S-Triple-Crown-Downhill-Air...

Re: Noob EEB Enduro Build

Re: Another Stealth bomber (clone) build

@gstegman yeah most people don't want the attention. I do have to say that my head is on a swivel when I go for test rides on the street. I grew up on dirtbikes and love them still, hence the look of my bike. Yours is coming along nicely by the way. You should also look at complete plastic kits on e...

Re: Noob EEB Enduro Build

So I've been thinking about this for a while, and knew I've seen that error before, then it hit me. I was able to replicate the error you're seeing on your TFT screen. When I program my bike via bluetooth I plug in the usb stick and unplug the 3 wire connector in the picture below. Doing this allows...

As far as the bullshit tracking number, yeah that's pretty common on aliexpress. My frame and forks showed u...

@geargrind welcome to the forum, and ebike building. I had a similar issue with my wheels and controller.

Re: Noob EEB Enduro Build

Well that's weird about your dropout slots being vertical man. There are a couple options ossivit's solution or a more intrusive route. In our chat you mentioned hacking off the dropouts, and that's probably the way I'd go. This mod will be so much easier of you know someone with a bandsaw, mill, an...

I made a bit of progress this weekend, even though the bike is damn near worthless until the new motor and wheel show up. Th...

Thanks man, I appreciate that. At the moment I'm using the power switch that is connected to the display. I thought about fuses, but decided to move forward without one. I set the MAX amps in the APP to 100A and the BMS has never tripped. I might eventually ditch the tft display for a cycle analyst,...

I'm literally learning the same things as you the same way you did. I dont have a white temp sensor wire (bundled with the halls) on my sabvoton either. Definitely no connections for variable regen, but you can adjust regen current in the MQCON app so it is adjustable in that sense. What also sucks ...
