Re: 250w hub motor scooter mod log

Yea I knew it was a bit too much for him but he insisted and I gave in. It was kinda funny though and he replaced all the parts. Max amps on the BMS is 160 amps (after you modded it). Max battery current has been like 23 Amps (super steep hill full throttle), so the BMS is living the good life. Put ...

Re: 250w hub motor scooter mod log

@mackyyy motor temp is not an issue with this setup. The high voltage allows these motors to pull less current but they still perform well. @EG, The charger is bad ass man. It's still going strong with no issues. I'm starting to have a bit more time to get this thing finished. Last time I posted I b...

Re: 250w hub motor scooter mod log

Well I spent a few days getting the scooter back together and made some tweaks in the process. I ended up notching the back of the battery box to allow more room for the wiring to feed into the battery box. Reassembling the scooter was a bit of a struggle because I had to do it late at night when i ...

Re: 250w hub motor scooter mod log

I was able to get the battery box extensions welded on. It was pretty simple and straightforward as I've already done this once. After it was welded up I sanded the welds down flush so they wouldn't be visible when I painted them, which was the next step. I had a can of flat black plasti dip in the ...

Re: 250w hub motor scooter mod log

haha yup only rode about 12 miles then tore it down again lol. It's raining today and tomorrow so why not. This is the last major mod that needs to be done, the rest will be cleaning up more wiring and swapping out connectors. Damn 30 amps through that little connector! I'm happy with the 5 amps I'm...

Re: Superglue for Brushless Motor -----+++

You could maybe try this loctite 410. I've tried jb weld in the past and have had no luck. After applying the jb it wants to run everywhere because of the iron in the resin. Red loctite has a high operating temperature so if you can get it to work that would be ideal. You could also try loctite 410 ...

Re: 250w hub motor scooter mod log

Damn those are some expensive controllers. I'm pretty much at budget for this scooter, but those are definitely good candidates for future projects. I really like how compact they are, and modding them per your suggestion would make them killer. I kinda dig that look of both the controllers on my sc...

Re: 250w hub motor scooter mod log

Got some more work done last night, stayed up til 1 shortening and rerouting wiring. I also got the charger port mounted on the top of the deck for easy access. I'm still using the spacers I made to prop the deck up above the bit of wiring that sits just above the frame rails. I went to lowes today ...

Re: 250w hub motor scooter mod log

So I made quite a bit of progress this weekend and was actually able to go for a short ride.There is still some more work to be done to the frame so that I can ditch the spacers I made and have the deck sit flat in the frame. What got done: I picked up a brake cable from the bike shop and cut it to ...

Re: 250w hub motor scooter mod log

So I received my BMS from ElectricGod last night and got it wrapped in kapton tape to avoid anything getting shorted out. After that I loosely installed it in the scooter so that I could charge the pack up for the first time since buying them in december. It was pretty simple to hook up and I was ch...

Re: 250w hub motor scooter mod log

Finally got some time to weld the caliper tabs onto the forks. I didn't have much time so I just MIG welded them on, even though I prefer TIG. Either way the welds are very strong and should have no issues bringing me to a stop. I had to make a little spacer on my lathe to get the caliper to sit jus...

Re: 250w hub motor scooter mod log

Thanks man. Yeah they're pretty big, but the look of them on the back fender has really grown on me, let's people know you're not fu***n' around lol. Dual hubs is definitely the way to go, the sound they make when accelerating is worth it alone.

Re: 250w hub motor scooter mod log

Been slowly working on this project again, I'm hoping to get it done sometime in April. I worked on getting the front brakes mocked up this weekend. I just need to cut the mounting tabs a bit then weld them up, should have a lot more stopping power than it did. I also have an 18s BMS coming from Ele...

Re: 250w hub motor scooter mod log

So this scooter has been dead for the past 9 months while I was focused on other things (work), but now I'm back at it! Over the past few weeks I've been working on it little by little to get this thing back on the road and better than ever. The main issue with the last pack (other than being cheap ...

Re: Frankenstein (Hoverboard + E200) build

So as usual work and home life have been hectic, but ITS ALIVE!! Finally got all the fab done for the controller mounts and the brakes. I mounted everything last week and wired it up with a 5ah pack (need to upgrade). This thing is a wheelie monster! You can be going 8-10 mph and pin the throttle an...

Re: Frankenstein (Hoverboard + E200) build

Yes there will probably be lots of understeer. I'm ok with that though, I want this to be a fun scooter to ride. I'm hoping wheelies aren't a problem when both motors are wired up. So I've been working on the motor mount here and there when I have free time, work is the craziest its ever been. I fin...

Re: Frankenstein (Hoverboard + E200) build

I think 12s is the sweet spot on these motors, we'll find out soon. I was able to get the motor mount 95% of the way there, I just need to do some fine tuning on it and drill some holes. I spent the whole weekend thinking about how to stop this damn thing. I pulled the motors apart and realized ther...

Frankenstein (Hoverboard + E200) build

So the other day I was headed to work on my hoverboard from the hardware store in SF and all of a sudden it lost power and threw me off at 10 mph with no warning. I stuck the landing and reset the board, everything seemed fine then it happened again. I'm guessing its voltage sag, but I don't care to...

Re: Razor E300s upgrade

I think standard mild steel is fine if you're mig welding, you could buy another set of e300 forks and cut them up. I'd also suggest putting a slug (solid steel rod with the same OD as the ID of the forks) in the fork tubes for added strength. Cool project can wait to see it run.

Re: 250w hub motor scooter mod log

ya $2,500 is a bit steep. It looks pretty cool though. I'm curious to see how much they embellished the specs.
