Re: new eZip motor

I melted a battery connector once, going up a long slight hill. The connector was the generic p.o.s. that comes with ebike stuff.

Re: Quality brand version of this cutter?

Well if you want quality, you go and see what the professionals are using. Klein is a big brand that tradesmen use, I've seen some of their products at Home Depot. If you want quality your going to have to pay up for that. Remember to that a quality brand is useless if your using the tool wrong. You...

Re: Great TV Shows!

There is a sports show on tv called Tag! Its a low budget show but the athleticism was spectacular. It can get quite acrobatic with some of the contestants doing some fancy 'jumping over barrier' aerobatics, even flips for show for extra brownie points from the contestants to the producers. Whatever...

Re: EMMO Proton Shunt Mod?

What legalities are you worried about? If its wattage then don't worry at all. No one can tell the difference between 250W or 2500W, seriously no one can, unless theres a neon sign sticker on your hub/controller in plain sight. Grab some hallographic stickers that say 250W and stick them over your 1...

Re: KT-LCD3 problems with throttle

TBH I never really liked the KT setup. I had purchased a Hallomotor/Conhismotor kit and it was fine, until I got to a hill and it would cut off or do something weird. It was a long time ago, I am sure it was just a setting in the menu but I never bothered to figure it out. It was to weak a motor to ...

Yeah your right on that part, I instantly thought some pressing machine but theres other ways. That washer, bolt and nut idea is a classic, I've done that many times. Even be done with headset or bb on bike. The c-clamp press I've done on auto brake calipers. Lots of ways to skin the pressing machin...

Re: Do I need a special machine or tool for this bearing?

Hammering a bearing is not recommended. You can hammer out the old one, but you should press the replacement. You are right but that is ideally, be nice to always do things ideally but thats not the way things work out. For a more precise fitment, a press 100% but ebike cover not that precise. If y...

Re: Bryan Lunduke ( linux nerd ) argues against commercial electric cars

You need a laptop to diagnose and fix vehicles today. Instead of a $50 mid drive train bearing you need to buy a $500 part. A friend of mine had a mirror on his truck get hit, the quote was $900 for ONE heated ford truck mirror. The government allows it all to happen.

Re: Do I need a special machine or tool for this bearing?

It is the most common way to "press" something into something else. Another way is a U-clamp, bench vise, car jack after a certain friction level is met, an actual mechanical or hydraulic press but the hammer method is commonly used in automotives. Just always make sure its all level, so h...
