Re: Jackal's Duplex Drive Electric Motorcycle

Alright, updates: - Axle plates now close to "final" design but will have to be modified slightly. Despite what the drawings say, the dropouts are not equidistant to the center of the wheel on the QS 205 50H that I have. It's off by 5mm. So instead of using two 3/8" plates on each side I'm going to ...

Re: Jackal's Duplex Drive Electric Motorcycle

Thanks for the tip. If I run into too many troubles with the dual Kelly's I will definitely consider it. Slowly making progress. I've got the motor running on a stand with the 72V 23.2 Ah pack. Brake disc and caliper now fits properly. Tomorrow I'll place an order for the 18 inch rim 2.75 wide (rim,...

Re: Jackal's Duplex Drive Electric Motorcycle

I considered the adaptto but I ended up picking a Kelly KLS 7240D. I've seen the Motorino thread and he seems to be using a KLS no problem now. Kelly has a pretty big range of products the controllers seem to have decent software. Do you guys know something I don't? I haven't fired up mine yet but t...

Re: QS 205 dropout design

@tom

I just realized that your dropout clamps front to back instead of top to bottom. Now it all makes sense!

Re: QS 205 dropout design

Yes, if the wires came out like this it would help a lot. http://i.imgur.com/EQRjEIWl.jpg Definitely not an easy motor to work with. If QS is reading this here's some feedback: - Leave enough space for disc calipers (I think they increased it from 15mm to 17mm in later models) - Grind the excess mat...

Re: QS MOTOR,0.5-16kW Electric In-Wheel Hub Motors Manufactu

Short of using a solid wheel, it looks like there's no other option but to use radial lacing for the 273 inside almost any rim. The angles are just too extreme. Seems to be working for some. Good luck!

Re: QS 205 dropout design

Yeah, that pretty much is the way to go it seems. Tom, it looks like you are bolting the top part of the second section. Is this to allow the "C" to flex and pinch? you don't want it completely bolted or welded to the other? I'm also curious as to why you are clamping on the round face of the axle a...

Re: QS 205 dropout design

Thanks for the link Icewrench. I see, you are basically building a big clamp for the flat faces of the axle. The nut is almost a secondary complement to tie everything together. Interesting solution with the "double" version to get the wires out in a reasonable angle. You don't want to bend them too...

QS 205 dropout design

Trying to design the dropouts for a QS205 and came across this issue on the disc side axle. You see, the way it's machined I don't see how you can clamp a flat plate with the nut. http://i.imgur.com/GXkTRPyl.jpg If you clamp like A, you have good bearing surface but the clamp surface is small and un...

Re: Jackal's Duplex Drive Electric Motorcycle

Here’s a rough representation of the idea. This one in particular is using the 273. It’s a pretty bare sketch but the dimensions are accurate for the most part. Some things, like the foot pegs are just place holders.

Jackal's Duplex Drive Electric Motorcycle

Hello everyone, new user here bitten by the electric bug! I've started thinking about building an electric motorcycle since early March I believe. It started small and it grew into a 2wd motorcycle idea. It probably is overkill, wasteful and suicidal but hell, if I'm going to do something from scrat...

Hi Vito,

Sent a PM about wide rims options for the 273

Thanks!

Re: QS Motor 205 273 V3 3000W-4000W Moto wheels

Hi, would it be possible to get the 273 on a wider 18in motorcycle rim? like 2.15 - 3.00 wide? I want to use a beefier tire, like 110/80-18, or 120/80-18 (needs 2.75)

Thanks!
