Re: Custom KMX recumbent trike with QS205

EDIT: also wanted to say that I get tones of compliments on the suspension. and I'll admit I like it too. (and I most certainly give credit to you when people ask about it... just saying.) I also notice with my bike being in the sun a lot the anodized coating has taken on a copper-ish color. which ...

usually, a cable get loosen somewhere, but in your case, the controller might be dead.

It happened once to me, one of the big capacitor inside was not glued properly and one side opened and I had to replace the controller...

Re: Custom KMX recumbent trike with QS205

some build thread are going for years, It is your best spot to post a long ongoing project.

It is probably not that, but you could raise the power limit on the CA and see if you are still limited to 30A.

My controller can do 10kW, but the CA is capped at 7.5kW right now.

Should I post another thread in this section or elsewhere as I go thru designs and testing of components and what not. I would start a new thread if it a new bike. Rbat = 0.073ohms (is this good / bad?) I don't know, mine read 0.038ohms also boost doesn't seem to work on the bike right now (running...

Re: Custom KMX recumbent trike with QS205

I'll keep in mind the slick tires. Right now the tires have worked out well so far, the right front one however is wearing a fair bit more than the left though. Usually, when the tire wear out too fast, it is due to toe in / toe out alignment. I would take a look at it. I got best result with 1/16 ...

Re: KMX Trike Front Suspension

The nylock nut most likely have a problem. It should have work even without the loctite. If you have the "K spindle" the replacement bolt is 3/8-16 x 1 1/2" (92949A628 Mcmaster-Carr) If you have the "old spindle" the replacement bolt is 3/8-16 x 1 3/8" (92949A868 Mcmaster-Carr) In both case the nylo...

Re: KMX Trike Front Suspension

But almost all independent supensions don't work well with a simple one piece tie rod. The sliding pillar is the exception, and it's light weight and simplicity also make it appropriate. Like the Ice suspension ? https://www.dropbox.com/s/xdd9gfy340g6sxp/ice-kingpost.jpg?dl=1 Scrub radius is the te...

Re: Custom KMX recumbent trike with QS205

Hmm... your power consumption is very high. But again, the trike look fairly heavy.

I would give it a try with slick tire.

Re: KMX Trike Front Suspension

The fix is pretty simple. Either lower the inner pivot of the upper arm, or raise the outer pivot so the top of the tire leans in under roll. The short linkages will amplify the effect. This is what Carrol Shelby did on the GT350 Mustangs. Drilled 2 holes in a different spot. Thanks for the suggest...

Tested the bike over speed bumps and a terrible parking lot and I can say that the suspension even with the weight and tires is an absolute dream.
Glad to read this! :D

This is one hell of a trike, nice job!

Did you had a chance to see how much it weight finally?

Re: Custom KMX recumbent trike with QS205

I never disassemble the old spindle, I only took measurement for the section that mattered to me.

Personally I would just make the spindle thicker, or maybe cut in a Hardox steel plate. It would be cheaper and easier.

Re: Custom KMX recumbent trike with QS205

what total weight do you expect for te trike?

It is important to keep in mind that those pieces bellow are relatively weak.

Re: KMX Trike with TDCM IGH & Phaserunner

Nice trike!

The new trike stability should be better as the suspension and frame were designed so the wheel contact point on the ground match the king pin angle.
