Re: Stealth FUTR owners builds and pics

I found my problem a little while ago... Could someone please point me to the proper hall sensors for a BMC V4 pleeease :) whether or not any generic sensor will work or not is beyond me. I just know I'll need a new one. I guess it's time for me to go dig around a bmc thread. On brighter news thoug...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Very nice video CD, excellent editing and 3rd person shots! I could tell that was a beautiful ride. I cross posted this comment on your personal thread as well.

Re: Sur-Ron Light Bee USA group buy

Well, that’s probably not the only reason why, but in either case, nice to hear you’ll be on one shortly. It’s pretty pricey, but for what you get it’s not terrible. Hoping to see upgrades down the line, esp a front fender. Mud is going to be rough without. I think motomoto was developing one. Shou...

Re: Sur-Ron Light Bee USA group buy

That’s correct. Motomoto actually had both versions and he let me ride both. The first version is like the ones in the first photo shoots. The main identifiable differences are the fins on the motors when viewing it from where the wheel is (radially), and that the new bikes included a sine wave con...

Re: Sur-Ron Light Bee USA group buy

Yeah it’s a bummer. Been tryna get my hands on one and it’s been tough. Prices seem to be going up too, which is really bumming me out, unless they’re now equipped with higher capacity batteries or something. Test rode motomoto’s bike yesterday and it was great. Should have some in stock soon, hope...

Rix, I don’t think this group buy is happening anymore, by the way. You can purchase one directly from Kim in Norcal or Eric Luna in Socal.
Thanks M3T, I was wondering about that too. I also sub'd just in case any updates are posted here.

I still haven't decided if nofanboiz is an existing member of the group hiding behind a second login that he uses when he wants to be a jerk, or if he's just a textbook keyboard warrior. I'm starting to think more the latter... Possibly Chalo's Sensie? :lol: NoFanBoiz wrote: ↑Thu Jan 11, 2018 2:57 ...

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

Guys, please let me know your opinions - based on experience. What can I expect from a radially laced rear wheel at 16kW of power? Radial lacing makes for some super stiff wheels. just keep your spoke tension checked, and true the wheel as soon as you notice it needs it. I suspect when the spokes t...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike from China

17 digits I think I once read is the requirement for vin number. You are correct. Pretty much any vehicle after 1980 has 17 digit vin. In Nevada there are provisions for the DMV to issue a VIN in the event the manufacture's VIN isn't in compliance. Its a process and I don't know what all it entails.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike from China

Hyena- I see you already replaced the bars and grips. What did you end up getting? I went with protaper mx bars and grips and switched out the stem for a BMX one too. It's not 100% ideal as it doesn't have the knurled grippy part for the stem in the centre but it seems to be holding on OK after tig...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike from China

The only catch is it needs to have a VIN and an "engine number" and the speed needs to be limited to 30mph (easy enough) Same in Nevada, and the rider does need a class C driver's license (with or without a MC endorsement) even though registering and insuring are not required for road use. Ironical...

Nice pics CD and very impressive performance. With the volt sag being so minimal, I bet it feels way faster than before.

Finally got some video.

I missed this earlier, Damn that was impressive Moto! What kind of range do you get on the track? What kind of range do you get trail riding? You weigh 180 pounds, is that your ready to ride weight with gear on? Inquiring minds want to know.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike from China

I was about to report back that with just over 100kg in combined weight (more likely a single heavy rider weight) it was still quite reasonable and it was only after a long, steep descent that I had the brakes stressed to the limit (ie, smoking). And I'll know how the bike handles if I ever develop...

It's a alloy stator H40, which is basically a crown these days. Controller will be a crystalyte 18 fet sinewave job running 80A at 21S for around 6500w peak. I could turn it up to 100A for 8kw odd but I think 6-7kw really is the sweet spot . I've had my alpha turned down to 6kw for back to back tes...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike from China

The motor is finned. It sounds like a trap controller, too thunky between poles to be sine. I'll certainly be looking for methods to get more amps. Glad to see you pop up JR. Any chance you will be getting back into the the wheel building business? I think there may be a market for 19x1.6 and 21x1....
