Re: ixxat USB-to-CAN compact & Sevcon DLD flashing

4- My actual main problem with sevcon programming is: motor overcurrent that make cutout at 1/3 of the drag strip!!.. and i hate that as i feel pretty shy when it happen and it does not make any good publicity for EV!! Apparently we need to set the torque map to full torque at every rpm and then to...

Re: Zero Motorcycle Upgrade Package - Drilled motor + Size 6

When I was racing my S in '13 we added a size 6 and quickly ran into heating issues. We drilled the end plates in a way that sounds very similar to how you describe. It made a big difference. I tested out an oil cooling method and that made an even bigger difference. Would be interesting to see how ...

Re: Using 4 Milwaukee 9ah (162wh) Batteries to power Ebike?

You can buy the clips with the wires coming out from Milwaukee. I forget the part number, but I have bought several of them way back in the day. I think they call them test clips or something like that.

Re: Electric Chipper Shredder

Actually, that looks a lot like the motor on my old air compressor that has a blown metal air line that I stopped using. I have an old 5hp gas chipper that doesn't work, picked it up for free. I think I might try to merge the two of those together. http://www.patriot-products-inc.com/csv2515images.htm

Re: Electric Chipper Shredder

This is the biggest electric chipper I could find for sale. It is 1.5hp, but they claim it can do the same sized limbs as the 4 hp gas model.

They also went with a AC 120v.

5 hp is the standard gas size for home use, so I was going with that.

Electric Chipper Shredder

Ok, not really sure exactly where to put this, so I'm putting it in here. I'm looking to turn a gas chipper shredder to an electric. I was thinking of using one of my extra DC motors. But then I had a thought that they have some that run off 120, so I was wondering if I could use a 5 hp AC motor. Ba...

Re: Thundercat EV

Well, I used a different chassis. But here is my build thread.

It started off with a totally different design idea, and then ended up becoming closer to your build.

Re: Thundercat EV

Looks very similar to one of my builds. Unfortunately I used a sevcon controller and the company I bought it from couldn't program it correctly. Regret not going with a Kelly.

Re: Group ride in Orlando, FL

Shoot. I'm focusing on E motorcycles at the moment. But I suppose I could throw a bike back together for a ride. I just need to do some batteries and hook up a controller I think. Been waiting on an order of large heat shrink to do some headway packs, but it is long over due.

Sounds like a cool build. Where are you located? We didn't really call them Thundercats too much in the US. For those who are not familiar, this is the ZYF600R. This bike was the upgrade from the FZR and led to the R6. How far along are you on your build? Post some pics, we are looking forward to se...

Re: EIG battery issue

Yes, these are the 20ah foil pouch cells. I will separate it from the rest of the pack and try to recharge it. If it holds a charge, I might try to use it for some small projects by itself, but don't think it is worth it to keep it mixed in with the other cells. I think 21s should be a pretty good b...

Re: EIG battery issue

Yes, I run it without a BMS....while sitting on a shelf. :lol: :lol:

I guess I was real tired last night when I posted this, it isn't a 24s pack, it is a 22s pack. I don't know how 24 got in my head. So it looks like I will be running it as a 21s pack.

Re: EIG battery issue

This morning I went out and checked the pack. The bottom cell was no longer puffy, kind of shriveled up. And every cell was balanced at 3.60v except the top 3, which were at 3.61 and the bottom damaged cell, which was at 2.65.
