Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Yes. It's on the AC side. Yes it's the original Kingpan version charger. I'll probably end up getting another charger at some point, but why throw away one that just needs a five dollar part replaced?
If it's just spark prevention I'm okay with that. My 72v lipo had much scarier sparks!

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

:bigthumb: Thanks! At least I know I won't be doing damage to the battery or anything. Works fine shorted out. I have already spent enough this year on the bike with new forks and Saint brake pads. I don't need another $150 charger. Noticed my headset moving on my last ride, so that's next on the li...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

We need to know what it was. Kinda crispy to see a number. Need a good one to look at. Can you tell if that was on the input side or the output side? There's two nts thermistors that broke and fired up. Obviously can't get any numbers now. I know Holmes hobbies did a video about turning down the am...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Woke up to this from my charger. Can I short this to do a quick charge? Can I buy these anywhere and solder them or should I just buy a new charger?
Thanks for any help!

Re: Lift efoil electric hydrofoil review with video

Yeah, wind is great when its blowing. I've wasted years of my life waiting for the wind kiteboarding. Now, I can ride anytime I want. My efoil cost $4500. Probably close to what your board and sails cost. :wink: Hopefully the boards will get cheaper in the future. No way they should cost $12000. Mot...

Any updates on the drive? I thought this thing looked really promising. Or is everyone just out riding without issues?

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

I'm selling my fastace fork if anyone here is interested. Needs to be rebuilt, doesn't hold air very well anymore. In good shape besides that. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/e12000.m43.l6300/7?euid=851014dad58d4310b8636699cfb71133&bu=43621393348&loc=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F323863714...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

I just bought a dnm, to replace the fastace after a year of riding. Blown seals. I had an x-fusion rv1 on auction that got snipped for $350. Another fork that might be good is the marzocchi 380. It's made by Fox. They sell for $500 new on eBay.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Thanks for the link! Exactly what I was looking for. I will start at those settings. Motomoto recommended 70psi on the bottom and 40 up top.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

My fastace suspension is sucking. Bottoms out now. I'm a total newb at it. What are the recommended settings for someone around 190lbs? Seems like I am getting way too much sag. If I pump the top chamber to 75 psi, I only get two inches of travel. I have rebound set up to middle and the bottom right...

I try again with a number of different props and an old 6s boat ESC. The props fly off or break and nothing seems to work. Meanwhile, the weather gets cold and I don't have another setup to try before I am done for the season. I buy as Christmas presents to myself the missing gearbox for the SSS mot...

New electric foilboard

I know most forum users ran off to the efoil.builders website, but for the truly faithful ES members, here's my repost from there. ES is where my gratitude belongs. I wanted to do a write up for myself and posterity on my own foil adventure. Most of it will be me rambling on about other electric pro...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Comparing an mx snowbike to the sur-ron is absurd. They weigh about half as much. I think it depends on how deep the snow is. An electric snowbike will happen sooner than later. To a point you get the weight and torque advantage with electrics. I bet the Alta motor bike would manage as it currently ...

Re: Adding battery capacity to EV

Another pack weighs 450 lbs. That's only two Americans in the back seat. The new 33kwh pack weighs only 150 pounds more than the older 24kwh. I'm more concerned with charging or controller not recognizing the battery. Seems simple coming from doing this all the time with bikes. Even over volting. Wi...

Adding battery capacity to EV

This may be a dumb question or already discussed, so bear with me. Is it possible to just stack two batteries in parallel in an EV like the Leaf or Focus Electric. I haven't read about anyone doing this. Coming from Ebikes, that is an easy option to get more range. Why can't I just add two leaf batt...

Alta motors dnfd because he got lost in the trees. Took a wrong turn. They would have made the swap if not. Gassers have to pit too to refill. It's a 30km brutal race. I watched the video.

That's a nice mount Minimum. What I have always wondered about the Cyclone kit. If they just made a better mount, the kit would be super solid. There is too much messing with doing the nut mod.
