A drop in 72V battery is now available that doesn't require you to sacrifice your OEM one. Great for those who are running aftermarket controllers.

That will wake things up.

My fear would be how to fix something if it broke. If I crack my Sur-Ron frame or swingarm I can fix it.
I have no idea how I would fix hemp. Smoke it and say goodbye? :flame: :)

Since I can lift my seat up to pedal better, my plan last night was to leave early, and pedal all the way downtown, 20 miles with no power. With only 19 2/3 miles to go, I finally gave up on that stupid plan, sheez :(

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Tech question for everyone. Back from a ride, burned 1391 watts. Went to charge the battery, and the charger would shut off after a couple of seconds. Popped off the cover on the frame, and while I was checking the battery charge wires to make sure it was plugged in, the charger started charger. So...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

So that red wire that was cut has nothing to do with the charging. The cut red wire just unrestricted the power. Most likely your XLR plug on the bike is melted. Some where between page 130 and 250 in this thread, I posted a pic of what mine looked like. I had to change to Anderson units to get my c...

Re: Storm Bee electric dirt bike

In Map 2, its rocking about 24-25kw and will flip you over backwards if you wack the throttle at any speed below 30MPH. Map 4 is go...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Thanks Rix, that looks like a real good one, but too late for this project. I already ordered a Fox 4" external one on eBay, plus a $50 Fox remote lever. Apprently for $300 you don't get no stinkin lever, or a cable, that's extra. It gets good reviews though, and I have a lot of room under the seat...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

I love dropper seat posts, you will wonder how you got along with out it. Get the shortest one though. Can't chop the bottom of them to shorten. I'm with you about a short post. Fox offers the shortest one I've seen, which is 4". Even on the rare occasions when I lift my seat to pedal, I only raise...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Now that my fabulous forks work so good, and my rear shock works so good, and my new battery works so good, I guess I need to upgrade by brakes. I'm thinking the new black and red MT8. What's wrong with that, anything? I just need to save up a little more money, like about $340. https://www.ebay.co...

it was sportsman class, run what you brung.. still cool to see though, can't wait for some modified surrons to race the gassers next..
It was cool to see the SurRon mix it up with the gassers. The next gen SurRon will be way better for this purpose.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

I wasn't going to say anything Jay, but since you brought it up, at best the guys the SurRon pilot was racing against in the open class were C riders. There is no way the SurRon is beating a B or A riders on a 450. The exception would be if the SurRon rider was an A rider, and the course was down h...

To all those out there that swear the Sur Ron can't compute with "real" dirt bikes! This guy took first place in an open class race! Cool. Though to be fair it doesn't look like the other riders were trying too hard - most he overtook were just putting around. Bummer about the key-off delayed start...

Re: Stealth FUTR owners builds and pics

Very nice Jay, that bike is the bomb. According to my math, you have just north of 1300wh in the battery, figure 1150 usable. With the h4065, you got some good range potential, and because your battery isn't super huge, not alot of weight from it. Perfect bike for about 30-35 km of range. Again the ...

Hey guys, I've been out of action for a while with health dramas and then trying to get on with things, but I've FINALLY finished building my beta after 2 years!
