Re: Best electric scooter in the world?

You are definitely on the right track for range and performance. I like the look and design, it looks very usable in all kinds of weather with the wide front cowl and tall windscreen. Good storage space also. I suspect the price will show that you guys do not wish to sell the scooter to the masses, ...

Re: Interesting e-scooter or not? (wangye e-romantic)

For ease of use, reliability and parts/repair support, my wife prefers her gas Honda Forsa scooter (300cc) much better than my electric scooter she got to ride for a year. 125cc is good for puttering around town, 150cc will give you highway speeds but will struggle to do it, 300cc and up will give y...

Re: Gilera Runner - Newbie tips

John is right about QS Motors. Contact them and tell them what your expectations are and they will steer you towards a motor and controller that will suit your needs. Their 8kw 13 inch motor would be more than enough to meet your demands. They have single shaft motors with removable wheel if you wis...

Re: Anyway of making the R martins from china sold on Ali express road legal in U.S.

Your opinion on what this vehicle is meant to be doesn't really matter. Here is what I learned building a scooter looking E-bike into an electric equivalent of a 200/300cc motorcycle. (performance wise) It all depends on the way the vehicle is imported into the country. Mine was imported as a bicycl...

Re: Rubber cushion drive in rear motorcycle wheel

I'd say the cushions will help in making the belt last longer, but if you have to get rid of them then just do it.

Re: LMX 161 - The world's lightest freeride motorcycle

This looks like a lot of fun and if you get it road legal it will be practical too. I see a bunch of skinny little guys riding it in photos and videos. Can it support a 260 pound muscular Canadian? :D Can you ride it in the pouring rain, snow, mud?

Re: Motorino XPn 2011

Sorry to hear your charger died. Mine's been mostly fine lately despite it crashing out over concrete last September, which led to some issues (mainly switching from CC to CV mode, but nothing major). Recently, I swapped it with a buddy's EMC-2000 87.6V/20A because I thought it died (it was actuall...

Once I had to jump start my 2014 Mazda CX5. We were at the RC airplane club so I used one of my kid's Hobby King 2.2 Ah 40C 3S battery. Worked like a charm.

Re: Motorino XPn 2011

My wife is now using the scooter since I bought an old Honda Magna V30 for myself. She thinks it's a lot of fun, I did drop the power to 50% so she pulls a max of about 250 amps on acceleration. Still out accelerates most cars on the road. I'll get it back when the snow comes and I winterize the Hon...

WOW! That's a lot of money for a motor. I started converting a Yamaha YJ125 Vino 7 months ago and had to stop because the spending was going out of control.

Is there a limiter plug on the controller? A plug with a small wire that simply comes out and loops back in? If yes take off the plug.

There is a temp sensor installed with a small screen to show the temp that I placed under the seat. The coldest I saw the battery this winter was minus four degrees Celsius. I used this temp gauge all winter for recharging, I would park the scooter in the garage and wait for the temp to reach five d...

Your Celllogs are set to LiLo. Set them to Lipo and the alarm will trigger at 4.2V, not 4.1. The tiny CD is the instructions.

Wow! How fast can you take as many components off the scooter? I can strip mine down to close to a bare chassis in less than an hour. I'm thinking about a controlled burn here. Take as much stuff off of the scooter and drench with water before "trigering" the bomb? Once the battery is burnt, you onl...

I corrected my post above. If you want CellLogs get the 8M, it has the same accuracy as the 8S but does not have data logging. Data logging is cool to see what each of your cells are doing while under large loads. I bought a single Celllog 8S to log data for my 5S groups in my battery, one at a time...

Celllog 8M has been trusted to work well and be accurate by many in here for years. A Google search will show you where to get them.
