Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

So 5403 with the 19” rim, only took me 6 months,
Pretty excited actually unlaced the old motor last night, tempted to put holes in it, sand it back repowdercoat or better yet the satin/ gritty finish that’s on the UFO

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Thanks Rix, 23 for the pole count looks good for the Crystalyte UFO 5565 and lines up with GPS speed on the iphone. done 55kms and used 25 out of ~32Ah available mix of cruising and belting it. Not sure why anyone would ever want a 5580 or 55100 motor, the 5565 taps out at about 90km/hr on 22S and i...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Try 23 and see if that brings your settings into check. I know the old 54xx motors were 12pole. Roger that thanks Rix, headed over to the parents to collect = ~2hr train ride and 20min walk to the station this end and 5mins the other end for a 30min ride home :lol: on another note, you had torque p...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Anyone know the pole count for the UFO? CA says I tapped out at 231km/hr lol. Max amps up from normally 74-75 to 76.55A While I was in there I beefed up a couple of traces on the earth side and main power + side where there was a gap between the input power DC wire and the wire that’s layed among th...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Yah 1ABV, I figured you would like the M403 Bridgestone off road. It works on dry, wet, mud sand and regular dirt. If you ride a lot of pavement though, the knobs will wear quicker than VRM 021 and Shinko SR241. And there lies the issue, trials tires offer all around good performance, but the knobb...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Game on! Pulled the 5403 apart to change the bearings and all the phase wires insulation was falling off. Getting stealth to re-lace into a 19" moto rim so i can get away from the puncture headache and lashed out on a UFO motor to get me going. Not a cheap exercise but **Pay to play** never been a t...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

This Bomber above now need a V-Boxx service or maybe a new V-Boxx. What's your advice to buy a new V-Boxx? Some time ago I read that Mammuth from Russia may sell it but I contacted them without any reply. Or does Stealth bike sell replacements for V-Boxx? You'd think they could do an exchange to sp...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

My next battery build will be top and bottom the same ie each of the top and bottom rows have 20S then when you fold the top over they cannot make an internal short even after any movement that may cause the insulating material to fail. from there i'd add the other 2S ontop flat like your fighter pa...

Realistically it's not an Apples to Apples comparison though...the LMX 64 and Stealth Bomber/Fighter are totally different beasts. Which is why I might just end up keeping both. :D

You buying a bomber then too :lol:

Much better!
3 bolts improves the load sharing and welds all the way way along the joins.

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

I paid Stealth to replace the rear swing-arm bearings ($20 each), however one of them feels really rough and stiff. I tried installing the rear pivot bolt and it moves easily and feels fine. Does anyone know if those bearings really matter that much and should I bother asking Stealth to replace or ...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

glad Stealth hooked you up. When I broke mine, Stealth promptly replaced it. Looking at the bottom pic, it looks like one of your cracks is old and has rust on it. Looks like it finally let go over time? Did you notice any cracks before this? I figured out where the squeaking / creaking was coming ...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Winning stealth to the rescue, no hassles and one is in the mail to me today!

The old one will go back for repair.

This is why stealth is a win for me, if I bought a cheap Chinese bike there would be no such joy.

What year is your bike Karlj? My 2013 has 3 bolts up there, and 2 down at the bottom, 5 total.

I think Stealth has beefed up that support on later bikes.
Funny thing was a mates future Beta had the same failure and its a 3 year old bike :(

You know, we talk a fair bit here about not drawing attention from the cops, but I'm curious, how many here have actually been stopped by the cops? What happened? If you haven't, how often do general punters ask about what you're riding? Are they interested or suspicious? I went in to my local poli...
