Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

In a hare scrambles you do laps. A 30 second battery swap 1/2 way would help your overall time a lot. I would do stuff like
this guy but it's kind of lame with 5 hp going that slow.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Probably because I helped ERT develop their ASI kit by lending my bike. I think my contributions to that page actually helped sell more bikes overall. The majority of my posts were informative, and I did my best to answer questions from prospective buyers as well as those seeking technical advice. ...

Re: Storm Bee electric dirt bike

Well, it's a start.

You could double the power on the Light Bee and probably this one too.

Re: Storm Bee electric dirt bike

It might be 20 lbs. lighter. They don't know the exact production bike weight numbers yet.

It will probably be half the power of the Alta.

Re: Storm Bee electric dirt bike

If you have ever owned a Light Bee you would be thinking that this full size bike would have the same kind of value. From the pictures it looks like they are engineering more quality stuff and probably at a great 'bang for the buck' price. If anyone finds any new info on the bike be sure to post it ...

Re: Storm Bee electric dirt bike

What I like about it is that it looks good. It's pretty, like the light bee. The light bee could be awesome, but a $1800 72 volt battery pack and a $700 plus ASI controller doesn't fit into many peoples' plan of action when you might hit 15 Hp with that max. The light bee is not very licensable with...

I just think it is time to start a Storm Bee thread. It could be a hit.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

525 dollars for the X-controller with the same power as the stock controller? I guess that white spray painted X on
the front is pretty cool. I'd buy one.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

I have gone by the "that looks like it would be strong enough" approach in the past, but these days you do finite analysis on the computer model.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

I used to make billet swingarms and frames. The swingarm weighed 1 kg without hardware.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

I guess I am going to have to do something with a swingarm also, since I want to put a 16 inch rear tire on it like the bigger rear wheel in this picture. the front wheel is a 19 inch like the Sur-ron has on it already. A stock 85 (shown) is a 14/17 wheel size combo. honda-cr85-big-wheel-motocross-b...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

I have the same shock but haven't tried it yet. It does have more travel at 3.5" vs the stock 3" on the Fast Ace.

I bought it because I can remake the spring retainer end with the proper eye to eye length to balance out the 280mm travel
WP AER 43mm forks.

Looks like $250 difference. OK. We discussed it and decided not to do the 4000. Luna can do the 4000.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

I think it was about $100 more for the 8000. We did talk about the 4000 and Martin said we should use the 8000

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

You motor heads should look at the data from ASI. It says a lot about the Sur-ron motor. 10 hp is all we are looking at maximum. Yeah, with 20s there is some more power, but 10 hp is all we can expect. Which is double what we get stock. It's interesting to me that the best numbers are at about 2000 ...
