Re: Upgraded Fat Tire bike stopped running, something seems Burnt!!

It's likely that you burnt up the controller and/or have damaged the phase cables from the motor to the controller. Is it a geared or direct drive hub motor? I'd start by inspecting all your connectors and cables for damage and then move on to controller troubleshooting: https://ebikes.ca/documents/...

Re: Adding extender battery in parallel.

Search around here for paralleling packs. Different capacity packs in parallel can work fine so long as they are the same nominal voltage and are at an identical voltage when connecting them in parallel. I ran parallel packs for a couple of years. Charging can be tricky depending on each packs BMS. ...

Re: QSMotor 212 35h

Yes I have used that motor model for several applications. As most of QS motors is tough as nails. It is designed for high weight bikes/trikes. It is a true 1200W continuous power motor. You will get around 45 Km/h with a 24" wheel and 48V. It is a pity that it does not come with double hall s...

Re: Not sure the best approach

If I was just picking between those two cells, I would choose the Samsung 26F over the LG lgeamf11865. It is rated for more capacity and higher discharge. https://secondlifestorage.com/index.php?threads/samsung-icr18650-26f-cell-specifications.1783/ https://secondlifestorage.com/index.php?threads/lg...

For paint, if you go the repair route: grind off/sand the area wipe down with mineral spirts or acetone buy some self etching primer (spray can) (sticks well to bare metal) and give it a few coats then paint with whatever colour you like (spray can) that should cost less than re-powder coating, espe...

Double check the connections from the motor to the controller. Could be an intermittent connection on one of the phase cables or hall sensor wires.

Re: LO26 Samebike battery 48v 10.4ah versus BBSHD

You have more than double the stress on the battery pack which will significantly reduce it's life and performance. (500W+ to 1400W +) You can reduce the stress on the battery pack by using less current on your BBSHD by programming it. As you've suspected, the BBSHD may be programmed for 52V which w...

Re: Tips or Tricks

edit: I see you got it off but for future reference:

Ah yes, road salt. WD40 isn't bad but you may want some stronger penetrating oil like liquid wrench, pb blaster, break free etc... and let it soak for at least a couple hours. A coating of grease would be good before installation too.
