Re: Sur-Ron Light Bee USA group buy

For the supermoto, what's the top speed? The 17" diameter supermoto wheel kit now available from luna includes a 42t rear sprocket and correct length chain to make the kit bolt right on and maintain the same top speed as the stock 19" diameter dirt bike wheels.. the supermoto wheel kit would also b...

I wouldn't know as fb is the devils work :) I like fb to follow all my favorite vendors and EV groups, etc so it's really handy for that.. all the latest EV news in your "feed" so you don't have to go hunt it down.. but I'm definitely not a fan of the company or management with all their privacy vi...

Re: Since the Sur-ron dirt bike was such a success anyone have info on their motorcycle

1) You said dirt bike, my CR125 is the quintessential dirt bike and there are NO equivalent electric bikes currently thanks to battery tech. 2) My Honda cost the same as a sur-ron INCLUDING maintenance to get it in good shape post purchase 3) 6kw is not that much power. It's not a big deal for a de...

Re: Since the Sur-ron dirt bike was such a success anyone have info on their motorcycle

You're saying the pedal version is turn-key able to be registered and driven legally on the road in states that differentiate between mopeds and scooters? Also legit "dirt bikes" (not gimped dual sports, which have even less in common with a sur-ron since they're designed to be road legal) are not ...

Re: Since the Sur-ron dirt bike was such a success anyone have info on their motorcycle

If you could legally ride the sur-ron on public roads without a speed restriction then you'd have something interesting, I agree. But you can't so what you have is a heavy motorcycle with ebike performance but with less stealth and less ability to get away with going anywhere. Also, while I'm not s...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

The shinkos SR241 is way way wider than their advertised size. Mine measures out at a little over 2 inches wide. They are considerably bigger (higher profile) and wider than the stock tires. I think Rix means the shinko 241 19 x 2.75 is just over 3 inches wide .. if you try to go any wider the rear...

Re: Since the Sur-ron dirt bike was such a success anyone have info on their motorcycle

I would be surprised if they've sold that many to be honest. The bike is unsuitable for an advanced user, fairly expensive for a newcomer or casual user especially compared to gas bikes and where do you ride it? It's about as streetable as an actual dirtbike. If you were a rich casual rider with ac...

Re: Motorcycle-Brakes on eBike?

I have never seen really large rotors on bicycles, just 208's. 208 is a very unusual size. 203 is common, I use 225. I see one 225 available at Chain Reaction, then two 205 and the usual 203 with twenty and three 200's. I am going with 203's I purchased from them up front with their adapter. 203 is...

Re: Since the Sur-ron dirt bike was such a success anyone have info on their motorcycle

Cheap components all around and doesn't have very much power or range even compared to gas pit bikes. OK for limited, casual use but a pos to anyone who knows better. The suspension, wheels, and tires on your average "dirt bike" where I ride cost more than the entire purchase price of a unsure rona...

Re: Motorcycle-Brakes on eBike?

what diameter rotors are you currently using?? you should use hydraulic four piston calipers with 9" or 10" rotors before trying to fit motorcycle brakes.. also ~70% of braking power comes from the front brake, so make sure that you are using mainly the front brake to take advantage of that.. also ...

There's a reason sur rons are cheap...they're crappy.
do you have one?? because everyone else that has them seems to love theirs.. I wouldn't really consider $3.5K "cheap" .. but where else can you get a complete emoto with aluminum frame and this size battery for less?? :?:
