Re: DIY Fix for BBS02/BBSHD Pedal/Throttle Issue

Mr. B, it's nice to see that this thread is helping many users, whether they want to use PAS with a throttle option when needed, or just use the throttle while they pedal. I'm still frustrated that Bafang and their dealers refuse to correct this issue which came out of the blue and spoiled an excell...

Re: BBSHD on a Tadpole Trike - Rocket Recliner

I like it, nice job! Good pictures too. My Performer trike with a BBS02 and a 48V battery tops out at 25 MPH on the flat, and I actually have it set to cut out at 20 MPH since most of my riding is on multi use paths and that's the top legal speed in Oregon for an electric assist bike. I just kept th...

Re: Performer Trike-X, Bafang BBS02

Nice find. I guess it sort of does what the "O" ring solution does. Been too busy with other projects to spend any time working on the trike, but am anxious to "eliminate" the shimmy and will try one of these fixes soon. Thanks. :D

Re: Motor advice for Heavy Trike

Back to the poster's original question, I wouldn't hesitate to install a Bafang 750W BBS02 on your trike. my experience with the BBS02 includes being able to climb a 20% grade with a 200 pound rider, so close to 300 pounds total weight. For starts on an uphill grade you need to be in your lowest gea...

Re: Performer Trike-X, Bafang BBS02

Should update my posts a little, but just got home from a 10 day road trip (by car) with a couple buddies, have an out of town buddy showing up today for a few trike rides, squeezed in around my volunteer work at the cat shelter. Anyway, I originally took my front fenders off for the same reason (no...

Re: My version of BBSHD Torque Arm (2018.08)

Very nice solution to your problem. Just a few comments for others doing an initial installation or having movement issues with their BBSxx: LUNA sells a very similar torque arm that they designed to solve the same problem. It's made from stainless steel. I used one on my tadpole trike because I wan...

Re: Workman side by side trike motor upgrade?

I recently helped a friend install a BBS02A on a bike that had a one piece crank (had to look up what an Ashtabula crank is). We just installed a standard bottom bracket adapter, after checking clearance, and there was enough clearance for the BBS02. Probably could have been a problem if the bottom ...

Re: Workman side by side trike motor upgrade?

I have a BBS02 on a delta trike which drives just the left rear wheel. I don't experience any "pull" to the right, at least not noticeable. I do have the top speed of the BBS02 limited to 20 MPH. I did have a brake issue on one of the rear disc brakes, (They are both activated by a single brake leve...

Re: Trail flat, an unexpected problem.

Wow, I never would have thought about filling the tire with something solid. Grass, pine needles, your sweat shirt or jacket. Makes sense though, sort of like using one of those "solid" tubes. Might be a little hard to get the tire bead on, but that would be a small price to pay to have transportati...

Re: Battery Wiring N00b Query

Sounds strange that the red wire from the battery would be negative, but if it is, it is! And that's why we always recommend checking the polarity like you did.

Sometimes if you are unsure, a small fuse in line for the first test can save having a big problem. Good luck with the project.

Re: Battery Wiring N00b Query

Sorry about messing up your thread. Use your volt meter to make sure the (+) wire from the battery goes to the (+) wire of the charger. Just plug in the charger without hooking it up to the battery to check which wire is (+), and hence which is (-). If you don't have a multi-meter or haven't used on...

Re: Battery Wiring N00b Query

Yes, it does matter which wire on the charger goes to which wire on the battery. Your question is vague. Didn't you have to connect your battery to your charger on the old bike? Where is the picture of your charger? Doesn't your charger still have the matching connector on it? At any rate, the posit...
