Re: KMX Trike Front Suspension

Thanks for the kind words Wojtek!

Great job on the trike!

I always wonder where to store my extra clothing while riding the trike, I see you found the solution :D

Re: KMX Trike Front Suspension

Most of the stuff they sell don't appear on their web page. You asked for a quote by email?

It would be annoying to have to purchase replacement parts directly from https://www.kmxkarts.co.uk/

Motor noise issue

I am running a small 500W hub motor + sine wave controller kit on my father's trike and the motor recently had issues then started making noise and got very hot. It is now braking like if it had strong regen and make noise when accelerating and decelerating. Maybe a hall sensor? Here is a 10 sec vid...

great job :D

Though, it is important to remember that heavier the wheels are, less efficient is the suspension.

Re: KMX Trike Front Suspension

This is not common, but there is still a few "Old generation KMX" in circulation, and I got asked 3 or 4 times if the Front suspension could work on those. The short answer is : No Long answer: Yes, but there is quite some work to be done. Steven was kind enough to help me remotely taking some measu...

Re: Custom KMX recumbent trike with QS205

Odd, your dropout look a lot like what I use on my trike.

I have the max power limited to 7.5kW and also use on/off regen and I never had this issue.

Only difference is that I am using a Cromotor V2.

Re: E-Trike Design: Balloon Tires vs Dedicated suspension

Nice trike design so far Qwerkus, Here is my personal experience with trike suspension. 1- Suspension doesn’t help to keep the tires in better contact with the pavement most of the time. The regen ( with hub motor ) has decreased because of the amount of time the tire is bouncing in the air. 2- Heav...

Agreed, the tube could be cut at a different place, but I had no other option for my trike because of the battery box.

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.
