Prodeco outlaw ss

Hi guys, been a while since I have made a post. I just acquired a couple of year old Prodeco Outlaw SS off www.propertyroom.com. Its a nice looking bike.

My Electra Cruiser with Mac motor acting up

Hi guys, 9 months ago I installed a mac motor with controller on my electra cruiser. It has worked flawlessly for the past nine months.

My Electra Cruiser project

Hi, its been awhile since my last post. I received my Mac kit from Em3ev in China. Must say I was bit over my head with this conversion. There was no instructions at all for the build. The first bike I put together was a front hub motor kit from Ampedbikes.com. They included step by step instruction...

How to re-program controller

Hi, just finalizing my ordering of Mac kit to Paul at Em3 ev. He stated that the 9 fet 30amp controller should be o.k but I should also order the cable to be able to re-program if I need to. I am not the most computer saavy person. I guess since I will be using a 36v battery until I purchase a 48v.T...

what is the 3 speed switch

Hi, will be ordering a Mac kit in next couple of days. What is the 3 speeds switch and what does it do. My guess is that you are able to push it and it gets you to 3 different speeds. Maybe 10mph, 15mpg and 22 mph without messing with the throttle and then you push the brake cutoff to cancel. I know...

Re: The final solution for Mac kit

Thanks guys for your excellent input. The video will be very helpful. Yes I have a 7 speed. Will definately order the freewheel and 2 torque arms for safety. I didn't know you can make adjustments on the controller. How is that done?

It took a minute for the penny to drop on the Mighty Volts pun. I was driving to play tennis and it struck me. Well actually more than a minute.

Re: The final solution for Mac kit

My only reason for doing the front was ease of installation. Is there any forum member in the Northridge /L.A. area that could help me out if I got stuck on the installation of a rear hub motor? If so I would definately go with the rear. No coaster brakes. Standard front and rear friction type brake...

The final solution for Mac kit

Alright you guys. My head is spinning with all the data you guys supplied. I'm not complaining but my head is about to explode. Tell me I am making the right decision. I don't do big hills. I like a little low end torque and would like the ability to go beyond the 22mph governor in some kits once in...

Re: Need help ordering MAC kit

I forgot to ask you guys if the MAC kits are simple to install? My last kit "ampedbikes" was pretty foolproof. The connectors where all matched up so it was impossible to make a mistake when doing the connections. Are MAC kits like that? Color coded or matched up connectors for someone with little e...

Re: Need help ordering MAC kit

Yes, I have lots of stops and starts. I currently have 36v 12A.H. battery. Would like get a controller that will allow me to upgrade to a 48v 12A.H. down the line. I like having more low end torque. Not really interested in going real fast. If the bike can get to a top speed of 25mph that would be s...
