Re: 18 4110 Lyen with 96V?

I would not run this controller above 100VDC absolute max Hot off the charger. 100V is the max the components are rated for. Your 96v is nominal voltage and too high for this controller. 27s(LipoFe) is the max unless you want it to fail. I would be surprised if it didn't fail as soon as the battery ...

Re: Enjoying my new 2014 Zero SR

The brakes on the 2014 Zero are rubbish too. A bike of that weight needs dual rotors. Hopefully there's an upgrade on the 2015 as we're expecting a couple more Zeros to join the eFXC series. I had a buell xb12r which had a single perimeter mounted disk with a 6piston caliper. That had incredible mo...

Re: Enjoying my new 2014 Zero SR

Judging by those mirrors.. that is the 2015 spec bike. Is that correct? Does it have showa suspension and a larger(320x5mm) disk upfront? If so, What is the suspension Like? Im looking to by the 2015 suspension as the fastace ones on the 2014 are rubbish on anything other than the smoothest roads. D...

Re: Perth, western australia Zero motorcycles.

Correct, Whirlpool. The time of petrol bikes may be passing ,..but the pricing probably explains why some dealers are still reluctant to commit . They know their customer base, and will know what sales to expect at that pricing. People are greedy, they dont seem to understand that they have to buil...

Re: LBS Thrust and Acceleration

I dont think anyone here measure there bikes performance in thrust. Most can only tell you how much power is going into the system.
With this in mind.. I would rate my H4060 like this
500w = mehhh
1500w = nice
2500w = well ok
4000w = heh heh
6000w = oh heck yeah
12000w = millennium falcon

Re: Programmable Controllers

The only settings that you can really program in these controllers that change the bike is the current, both phase and battery. Increasing these will consume more power.
