Re: 250w hub motor scooter mod log

Well it's been a while since I've posted in this thread as I've been building other projects (EEB, other ebikes) and it's been crazy busy at work. Anyway, I was riding this scooter daily in SF a couple miles a day (hard riding) with no problems and 1 accident (driver cut me off and slammed brakes on...

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 ...

Re: Another Stealth bomber (clone) build

@felix what's up man. I saw your thread a while back, very detailed. You're lucky to have all those bikes. Thanks for the compliments. As far as my bike, it's pretty much in the home stretch. 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

@gearsgrind, really sorry to hear you've been having health issues, hope your feeling better and can get on the bike soon. I was following your battery build, you really did a nice job man, the welds were nice and you could tell that you took your time. I almost PM'd you to see if you wanted to sell...

Re: Another Stealth bomber (clone) build

@bikestick What's up man, welcome. I'm not even sure how many teeth are on my front sprocket (haven't even hooked up a chain). I think 42t is what a lot of people are using. Andy sells, them, I'm sure there's other vendors. https://www.cloudsto.com/ebikes/42-tooth-chain-ring-detail.html The bike has...

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...

Re: Another Stealth bomber (clone) build

@pwd thanks hope you get to ride soon. About halfway up I lost a lot of speed and was getting some wheel spin. 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...

Re: Another Stealth bomber (clone) build

Had some beautiful weather this weekend and I was able to get the bike out for a proper ride with the new tire. The wife was planning on being out for a few hours today so I knew exactly what I was going to do. I've been wanting to climb this big ass hill here in town. I drive by it all the time and...

Re: Another Stealth bomber (clone) build

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...

Re: Another Stealth bomber (clone) build

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. I finished mounting the aluminum frame for the battery to rest on inside the battery box. I also cut and bent some aluminum sheet metal to mount to the frame. Doing this allows for a ...

Re: Another Stealth bomber (clone) build

@dung, yours looks nicer than mine. It's hard to tell from the pic but looks like you have a steel insert in yours, I'd leave it alone if that's the case. Made more progress this weekend, but still down. I could've rushed to get it back together just to take it apart later to add the improvements I ...

Re: Another Stealth bomber (clone) build

@dung what's up man, welcome. As far as that bushing goes, you might as well drill it out now that it's pretty accessible and install bearings. The side panels leaking water haven't been an issue for me, I've only ridden in light rain though. So I've been chipping away at the to do list and am almos...

Re: Another Stealth bomber (clone) build

@yungyakz not sure. I'd send EG a PM and ask him as he took it apart and has the guts. @choppa, finally got that damn bushing out, what a pain in the ass. Going to make an internal spacer between the bearings so that they don't push inward on each other. So I got some stuff done this weekend and am ...

Re: Another Stealth bomber (clone) build

@choppa still drilling that damn thing out lol. Mine has a 2 piece steel insert in the rubber rather than a solid piece, so I got one out. Hope to get this done and bearings ordered this week. Was planning on using some loctite but may also machine bearing retainers, we'll see. Thanks for the tire r...

Re: Another Stealth bomber (clone) build

Well I finally had 2 hours alone at home so I decided to tear my bike apart to start fixing all the stuff that is bugging me. I started with the rear end because it's the highest priority and the most work. I started by hanging a hook from the ceiling to support the bike while I work on it. Pulled t...

@markz lol I can relate. Hope you get back up and running soon. @choppa there was probably some play. I had a spare bolt on another bike I have so I stole that temporarily. I was on McMaster yesterday and found some M8 shoulder bolts that are supposed to be the hardest they have and comparable to cl...

Re: Another Stealth bomber (clone) build

@j Bjork, thanks, I think the rear shock is either a 180 or 200mm. The rear shock is actually not bad, it's my front suspension that sucks. Got some bashing in this weekend and had my first failure. I was hitting some jumps and drops, then it happened. After dropping off a hill, I felt and heard the...

Re: Another Stealth bomber (clone) build

@choppa, it was fun, but the tires and suspension made it difficult. I could really use a new set of tires, these tires suck everywhere. At the skatepark it felt like the footprint of the bike is too narrow and squishy. Motocross tires should take care of that. No chain yet, I kinda don't care. It's...
