Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

HI TV... Thanks for the follow up, sounds good..! I'm looking forward to get the bike back together. Is there other maintenance items that I might be able to take advantage of while I have everything apart...? I've replaced the brakes and I also replaced the tube and tires as well. I dont think the...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

With my ca set back to 60 amp, my watt meter has gone back to 4500w. After it settles down from peaking, it runs a little over 4500 hot off the charger.

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

If you want the best: https://www.ebikes.ca/shop/electric-bicycle-parts/chargers/cycle-satiator-72v-5a.html But the 83,8 is fine. You if you charge your cells to about 4,1V=82V you will have a greater life span on the pack. No need to squeeze those extra Volts, you gain extremely little range but l...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Has anyone got any advise on chargers. I now have 3 chargers for my new battery, but not complete happiness with any of them. The free one that came with the battery is only 4 amp, and takes all day to charge. I charges to 84.1v. The fancy one I bought on alibaba with the adjustable current knob get...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

The old guard, meets it's replacement. Last night I got to show off to a Harley rider. I happened to ride by his house as he was getting on his bike. By the time he got the beasty started I was 2 blocks ahead. I could hear the loud monster coming behind me, so I gassed it. About 7 blocks, and 2 stop...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Now that I've had time to get used to riding with my controller set on 65 amps, I think I'll set it back to 60 amp. I can feel the controller getting warmer than it used to, and summer isn't here yet.

There's a slight difference in acceleration, but almost no difference in top speed.

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

update... Suntour finally got back to me (weeks later) and announced they DO NOT manufacture a 160mm crank for the Vboxx. However I have seen YouTube vids where guy have had drilled and threaded another hole 10mm lower than the standard on the same crank. Is this crazy talk or totally kosher?? Sent...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

I'm really happy with my new 24ah battery pack. It's definitely an improvement over the stock battery. The worst thing I can say about it is, I wish it was 30ah. I can't really complain too much though, because the price was right. 5 lbs lighter total weight is nice too, especially with the battery ...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

FL are you seeing something approximately like this? This is with my ca set to 65 amp. It was only about 1 amp less with the ca on 60 amp. The stock battery never saw over 67.7 amp. The watt meter is where the real action is. With the ca set for 60 amp, watts are 4500w with the new battery. Stock it...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

FL, check your ca and see how many amps it's set for. Mine was set for 60 amps from the factory. I set it to 65 amp, and it accelerates better, but top speed seems the same. What I notice most is higher watts at wot. This probably has less to do with my new battery, and more to do with the different...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Any tips on bleeding magura mt2 brakes. Do you have to use magura mineral oil or is there something better. FL, the MT2 are easy to bleed. I bought one these bleed kits. Before starting I watched a couple of Youtubes on the subject. One thing all the videos suggest is to remove your brake pads firs...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

The only catch is I'll have to give up the regen because the freewheel body is too wide to allow the torque clamp to fit. I think I can live without regen Not necessarily...remember the torque arms I made a while back. I think I might still have one left somewhere. Want me to dig it up? Cheers Than...

I think I'll give this 14T freewheel a try. The only catch is I'll have to give up the regen because the freewheel body is too wide to allow the torque clamp to fit. I think I can live without regen.

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

So the night before last I wanted to ride, but there was a line of storms coming. After studying the radar I decided they were going to pass to the North of my house, heading away from my location. I decided to ride south. I got about 3 miles from my house when a mean old storm cloud popped up out o...

Not sure if I’m in the right thread but I’m wondering if anyone out there knows where I can obtain some shortened cranks for my new bomber? I’ve searched everywhere but no joy. Tia
I doubt they exist, but the VBoxx is made my Suntour.

I think it would be great at the critical mass. It's a lot cooler looking than the rentals.

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Yeah, belt drive would be a huge improvement over chain. I bought the first belt drive kit for my Sportster immediately when they first came out in 1989. It was before even the stock Sportster's had belts. Of course noise wasn't a consideration because it was firing twin cannons 6000 times a minute ...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Just ride a mid drive for a few minutes, and you'll never notice any controller noise from your Stealth again. :) No shit. My SurRon and Alta make way more mechanical noise than any squarwave controller I had hooked up to a hub motor. But in all fairness, mid drives offer more advantages than the D...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Could you repeat that, a mid drive was riding by, and it drowned out what you were saying. :( :D

I do like those controllers though.
