Re: 15/18F Silent Controller 36-150V BT-iOS-Android/GPS-$179-199

I just can't break the old 18fet :) I'm secretly trying to kill my 18fet unit with 10kw :). Just so I can have a reason for an upgrade :). This is one of the first versions with upgraded 150v caps. I've had this for two years I think and have given it a beating , it also was used for a year on my da...

Re: Can I convert the new vector lite to a middrive ?

I can't break this little powervelocity controller :) I pushed 220 phase with 100amps at 98v :) over and over, this little thing just won't die :) its actually a great match for the 3k mxus. No issues with the vector lite in the 8 to 10 kw range too. The hookworm is great at this power too, no rim s...

Re: Sur-ron Adaptto

Sur-ron have placed these bikes right at the entry point of electric motocross. From all the videos I've seen they are too slow and powerless for me, 14kw bikes kinda do that to you. however the frame and mid drive for me is a winner. Ill never buy a sur-ron myself unless they change the power optio...

Re: Definitive Tests on the Heating and Cooling of Hub Motors

So impressed with what a simple fan mod has done, I moved to a smaller fan and got the same/ similar results and reduced weight so slightly :) I also found running the fan all the time gave the best results, rather than when things get stinking hot, eg 70c up. Be great to see some results in Justin'...

Re: Definitive Tests on the Heating and Cooling of Hub Motors

I'm sill amazed to this day that mxus etc don't make a from factory heatsinked hub! With a researched design for capturing maximum airflow. Makes me think most hubs are built for the China market? I'm going to look at heat sinking the side covers, however just my simple mod has almost cured my main ...

neat idea, light weight pc high cfm fan, running off a small fan, flick it on when needed. *thumbs up* Yep took all of half hour to setup, lightweight fan, will be interesting to see how it puts up with dirt etc. thinking maybe the smallest ever raidiator fan could work, maybe a motorbike one if th...

Re: Definitive Tests on the Heating and Cooling of Hub Motors

To my surprise this worked out quiet well on today's hill climbs , the vector is now active cooled :) I was able to climb far beyond my normal overheat locations on just ATF and hub sinks alone. I did manage to peak out at 110c on one section after pushing really hard, but the cool down period is wa...

Re: Can I convert the new vector lite to a middrive ?

hi What about lateral rigidity ? Is the wingarm going right and left easily when you apply torsion ? (Im not saying it does, I'm just asking, as this would actually be a good frame for my girlfriend who wants a light one) Lateral regidity is fairly poor, as it's mostly dependant on the play in the ...

Re: Can I convert the new vector lite to a middrive ?

Hey thanks, yeh front is 26 as well, it's a thicker rim so it looks smaller. Peak at the moment is 6.5kw with nice torque @ 220 phase. Plan to up it to 9Kw - 10kw. couple of things I don't like with this frame are the battery cover bolts are prone to turning, I had to cut one bolt to open the cover....

Re: Cyclist spits at me and makes a buzzing noise !

He was actually going past the other way, so he only had moments to recognise the bike, spit and then make the noise. I suspect it may be the same guy from a year back who was in a group at the time, again going the other way. I'm on a different bike now. I'm on a quiet mid drive and used to be on q...

Well I've had the eyes up and down and the nose up turns as an ebike rider, but today's spit and mimic noise of an electric motor certainly raised my eye brows.

Re: Vector e-bike Frame 599$ /Adaptto/Parts WORLDWIDE

What batteries are you using to get 6.5kw of power in a lite frame? What are you planning to use to get 9kw? Currently using 4x4s 20ah multistar @ 100 amps , 220 phase on a 5T mxus. This puts the multistar at 5c max, no real strain for those. I saw about half a volt sag. Plan on swapping out two 4s...

Re: Vector e-bike Frame 599$ /Adaptto/Parts WORLDWIDE

N2SPxGGORJg Hi Artur, I notice in this video you have added extra dropout plates to take 6kw ? I added the 10mm plates so all up 16mm wide, are those the same plates you sent me ? im also thinking i may drill and tap across the 10mm one to add extra holding power. I just did 50klms over the weekend...

Re: Schwinn 4/6 bangers dropouts hold 10kw

But you had torque arms installed, of course ... right? I had some dodgy ones that would essentially only be used if the main dropouts failed, they were hand made ones with a wider gap. They never saw any use. most likely would have snapped the axle if one drop out failed and then used the backup d...

Schwinn 4/6 bangers dropouts hold 10kw

So after three years of 10kw and some serious phase amps my Schwinn 4 banger is being retired. If you find one of these rare bikes be assured they will take 10kw.

I run a 3k mxus with hubsinks and trans oil. it gets me most places. The long up hill rides in the 3 to 6kw cause me at least one or two scenery stops. Im actually looking at installing heatsinks on the side of the hub, i have some low profile ex chipset sinks that im going to look at. However Im wo...

However I like the look of the Kepler more , only other K...
