Re: Andrew's LMX 161 Chain-drive massacre Build Log

I got my LMX 161 running today and have an issue with the rear tyre. I have the 19” moto rim and have fitted 2 different tyres but they both will not seat properly, they both balloon at a random point? I tried my CST Sur-Ron tyre and Dunlop MX52 both did same thing, had anyone else had this issue? I...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

someone recently ordered a seat from their dealer and it was the new more padded seat, not the older version.. there will always be an unobtanium X(perimental) model, thats r&d and marketing.. but many of these upgrades will likely be faded into production and distribution on base models or availab...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

The sine wave controllers are termed “unstable” by the factory whatever their understanding of the term is? We have had issues of throttle not responding, throttle not responding with identical power delivery, no drive from standstill, and poor wiring termination at connectors. We are not given any ...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Our latest shipment arrived on Friday and we will be sending out pre orders this week to our Australian and New Zealand customers. The controllers have not been reliable and I would prefer not to send anymore overseas until the factory can support customer warranty directly. The X-perimental control...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Today we received our shipment of X version bikes. I can confirm that the bike comes factory fitted with sine wave controller, x version graphics, number board and rear plate, grey grips, new bars, different colour calipers, different brake pads, gold o’ring chain and DNM suspension. The bike has th...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

I wonder if Luna would even consider buying the old stock bikes at this point if they were going to place another order. That would be kind of dumb to do considering they know everyone is going to want the X-Version with the better controller. That is why we must all do our duty and demand Luna get...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

We were specifically asked not to talk about the X bike on the forum by the factory. That seems a bit strange. Maybe it's not really ready for prime time yet. Maybe because then nobody wants to buy the current model anymore and they can't get rid of the "old" stock as everyone wants an X version? T...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

The bikes can come from the factory with USD forks, initially these were supplied by Fastace, but now DNM. If the bike is fitted wit RST forks you get Fastace rear shock. If the bike is fitted with DNM fork you get DNM rear shock. I would say the RST is a better fork, it just stands out being White....

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

The bikes were designed to have a 26” Mtb front wheel used, all the pre production images showed the bikes with a 26” front wheel, Fox 40 forks, Shimano brakes and higher bars. The final product ended up with 19” MX rims front and rear to cut production costs and use one supplier for both wheels. Al...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

I much prefer the bike with a larger front wheel, and better suspension. In Australia most people are using the bikes for trail riding or enduro style riding, and come from a dirt bike background as opposed to e-bikes. I have started having front wheels built for stock as most are interetsed in the ...

So I just got kicked off Luna's Sur Ron Owners group (on Facebook) - simply for engaging in conversation. Apparently they only allow members that do nothing but kiss up to them.

Re: Sur Ron powertrain kit for DIY moto conversion?

I have been riding the Light Bee for over 6 months now and I am getting 70kms range from a charge. Average speed is 25-30kph with a top speed of 60kmh. I weigh 75kg and can ride the bike for 3 hours usually. My vids are on YouTube under aebikes so you can gauge the terrain and style.

Geez you have some nasty "roads" down there. I thought the stuff I ride was bad, but that was scary just watching the video. Looks like the SurRon handles it pretty well though.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

The 52T is perfect for my riding and terrain, the torque is much more manageable than the 58T and the top speed seemed closer to the 48T I thought just judging by feel. On this trail I wouldn’t have much use for more top speed anyways. I am looking forward to testing the sine wave controller in the ...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Had a great ride testing out the 52T rear sprocket from Motomoto last weekend. I believe this is the best budget performance upgrade.
More torque whilst retaining decent top speed, much more managable offroad than the 58T.
