Re: ES is looking for a SEO expert

Please raise your hand if you're willing, thank you. Unfortunately, SEO is never a "set it and forget it" solution. Happy to chat, but it will need to be more of a methodology than a technology if high pagerank is what you are after. M P.S. did you know that pagerank refers to Larry Page ...

Re: Lectra motorbike renovation

I have a 1999 Lectra Motorbike that was imported from the USA many years ago. Man, you could easily fit a 18kWh lithium battery pack on that bad boy -- plenty of room for batteries, controller, charger, and motor, even a radiator. No need to hack the frame at all. If you could get your hands on a u...

Do you have a 30A 240V circuit available in your house/garage?
No, no access at all.
???? Then how are you going to charge your battery?
20A 115V ? If so, you'll be leaving some Amps on the table!

I prefer magentic[sic] motion because it relates to our subject matter quite well. The name has good mnemonics.
And ya gotta love alliterations!

After capacity testing the cells and checking a few other things my cells are now not the same voltage. The easiest thing to do would be to charge them all up to max 4.2V but I don’t really want to build the pack fully charged. If you can figure out a way to build a jig to wire a bunch of the batte...

Simply going to have to disagree.
The domain name is fine as is, even good if you want to be discovered/standout from the rest.

Re: Electric Motorcycle and ATV questions (QSMotors)

So part of me thinks maybe it'd be a better idea to wait a few years for things to advance, and maybe drive the cost of everything down as well as have more options for parts to buy. But at the same time, that could be an endless cycle of waiting. If you don't have a workshop like Dui (3D printer, ...

QSmotors are very high quality. Your "problem" is that you are spoiled by the 600cc bike you have to compare with! Assuming you would be willing to invest in something that will perform much less than a Zero motorcycle I'd go with the latest V4 12kW QSmotor 17" hub. See: https://www.q...

Final detailing should come in the next two months just in time for springtime. Here is a sketch of what it will look like...
