Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

stock surron rear with "a" 70/100/19 tire -> 14,1 lbs
Hey Merlin, are you referring to the whole weight of the rear wheel with tire, tube, rim, hub, sprocket and disk? The stock CST tires that come on the SurRon are 4.6 pounds stand alone.

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

I switched the connector back to a stock 50 amp Anderson. What's up the stinky little stock controller wires? Reset the ca to 35ah, and zero cycles. It's on the charger now. Test ride coming soon.

Re: 19" Motorcycle Wheels vs 26" Bicycle Wheels (rim and tires)

Hey guys, would any of you know the best type of washers to use for smaller 12 gauge nipples on the motorcycle rims? This would be so a smaller nipple would be able to be used in a larger motorcycle rim hole. What is the best material to use? Thanks Try a stainless steel M6. make sure your nipple i...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

I've changed my attitude about the Sur Ron. After doing a lot of research I think it's the most desirable electric motorcycle on the market. If Sur Ron ever makes the bike easier to register I think they wouldn't be able to make them fast enough. My problem is I've gotten used to riding anywhere in...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Does anybody know what phase current means in context to what these fancy controllers for Sur Ron's have. They talk about shifting the phase current in the rpm band which changes power output and moves the peak higher or lower in the rpm's. Apprently the controller gives you the ability to do this....

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

This is what it has come down for me. The good news is, it will last a while. On average, I use 3 per crapper evolution. So that comes out to about 170 trips covered at the crapper.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

lol, you would do well to listen to those who are experienced. The OE rear lace pattern matters not to me, if you want a strong wheel cross-3. And this is my stock ebike wheel, cross-2, or -1 is used for hub motors. I did a survey of the motorcycle wheels in my shop. 9 were 2 cross and 3 were 3 cro...

I noticed doctorbass has been largely absent as well, though that could just be a coincidence.

Thanks Lee. Yeah, wish I didn't have to, but the Fighter has to go to fund the R&D needed to develop this idea. In fact it officially sold today. I'm happy as I got over 10K for it, which is fair considering the amount of mods I've made to the bike. I don't know if Stealth are planning a mid drive....

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Excellent work as always Grande. My Vboxx has around 16000 miles or so now. It has always had play on the sprocket counter shaft since day 1. I wonder if a little play is by design? I don't think so. I think they made the Vboxx with large mechanical tolerances on the bearings. All the bearings I su...

Does anyone know if the Sur-Ron rear wheel is dished any? Going to lace an 18" wheel and need to know if I should dish it.
What size of 18 are you going with?
