Re: Another Stealth bomber (clone) build

@choppa what's up man? How are you and the bike doing? Well I pushed really hard to get a bunch of improvements done on the bike before hitting the trails this weekend. One of the mods/fixes was the front tire. I got the shinko 244 mounted (by a LBS) and daaaaamn that things is wide, a little too wi...

Re: Moto tube preferences?

Saw a video of someone cutting the old tube and wrapping it over the new one, almost like a jacket. Going to try that on my next flat.

Found it:

Re: Help w/ parts for QS205 / KLS7230S build

Use the torque arms QS gives you, they work really well. Get hope brakes if you can swing the price. I have tektro auriga brakes (with brake sensors) with 205mm rotors and they're a little underpowered without regen over 30 mph on my eeb. I've had good luck with these. If you search ebay there are d...

Re: Building Stealth E-Bike. Need help with Moto Rim

I'd go 19" moto rim with a qs273. Not sure if you bought it already, but qs will lace the motor into whatever rim you want. I get it if you want to build your own. I had them lace my qs205 in a 19x1.6" rim. I buy my tires on ebay (shinko 244 in the front and dunlop knobby in the back). Hope this hel...

Re: Another Stealth bomber (clone) build

Here's another video of the same trail, but this is the descend, so most of it is down hill. It was a nice reminder that I need to get a better front tire and possibly upgrade the brakes. The front forks of course will get upgraded, hopefully this year. I have ordered a shinko 244 2.75-19-43 for the...

Re: Another Stealth bomber (clone) build

Another solid day on the trails today, with video this time. Max power pulled was just under 14Kw and 90% of the video was uphill (steep and choppy). I had a fan in place this time and right when I came to the stopping point in the video the thermometer light on the dashboard changed meaning it was ...

Re: Another Stealth bomber (clone) build

@markz Lol no. There is a regional park by my house that has hiking and biking trails. I've been going there towards 6pm when there are fewer people on the trails. Never been much of a trail rider, but am starting to get into it. I got a 12v brushless fan installed on the bike to help with the therm...

Re: Another Stealth bomber (clone) build

So it's been a while since I've posted an update as the bike has pretty much been sitting. Lately I've been watching some sur-ron videos (I want one so bad now) and got inspired to fix some of the issues I had with the bike. I started off with adding a light so I can go to these trails I just discov...

24V Liitokala 26650 build

So, a while back (on 11/11) I bought some liitokala 26650 cells off of alibaba for a custom battery I wanted to build for my stealth bomber clone. Instead I’m planning on building a battery for my kid’s dirtbike as he always runs out of battery before me and he could use a little more power. I want ...

I regret being cheap with the forks up front. I knew they were cheap when I bought them, but I was on a budg...

Re: Another Stealth bomber (clone) build

Not much of an update other than to say that she's running sweet. I went back to my hometown last weekend and ripped at one of my old riding spots growing up. I got some video while I was there, not much so I'll throw it in with some other video I have of local spots for the next one. The wife did m...

I was full throttle the whole way, didn't let off (kept saying "I'm not doing the walk of shame" to myself) @choppa Front suspension sucks but is holding up. I put a new starnut in so we'll...

Finally got a couple hours to finish up the bike. I finished extending the wiring for the 12v system because I moved the dc/dc and terminal block all the way down under the battery tray. I finished wiring the fan (which I'll probably change) and got everything back together. I went for a quick rip d...

So I've been pretty slammed at work and not a lot of time to work on the bike. I have made a bit of progress though.
