Re: Hot Spot Motor Temperature and Thermistor Placement

Greetings, this motor no longer works right? At zero RPM and full throttle the motor heats up very fast if you have the amps. From my burned out C-3000 motor the places of burned varnish on the copper wires was not everywhere equal. The copper coil heated excessively, where due to extra thermal resi...

Re: new cyclone 3000 w mid-drive kit?

Greetings, Does this Hall sensor fix still work for you? Is a new PCB board needed or are hall sensors located in the board? Thank you for the info in advance.

Re: Motor getting power, not turning?

Yep, referenced the ebikes.ca link from before. Not sure the colors line up with the ones in the pdf, but I tested every combination of terminals out of curiousity. The only one that is irregular is the one in the video. The combination giving the problem does not seem to be the ground wire, is the...

Re: new cyclone 3000 w mid-drive kit?

OK thanks. I've heard that it can run without the hall sensor is that accurate? When I get on the throttle the chain and motor pulsate. Greetings people, My Cyclone stopped working randomly. Currently, when I use the throttle, it makes a high pitched electronic noise and the motor barely moves. Does...

Re: new cyclone 3000 w mid-drive kit?

Greetings, When the motor burns up is it rebuildable? does the same thing always burn up? So to contribute to the thread I burned out another motor a month ago and I have major news that may affect those of you with a flexing motor. But first the burning. Taking about 70-80 volts, this motor really ...

My Cyclone stopped working randomly.
Currently, when I use the throttle, it makes a high pitched electronic noise and the motor barely moves.

Thanks.

Re: new cyclone 3000 w mid-drive kit?

There is a little play in the freewheel on the Chainring/crank... I heard there should be a washer there? "Agreed with Christian, in my experience (all my eBikes have a Cyclone triple chainring) the crank freewheel NEEDs the washer when the crank is threaded onto it... otherwise it will come off and...

Re: new cyclone 3000 w mid-drive kit?

Thanks for the info, I had some stiffening initially, but I took it off because eventually, the chain came off. All of the reinforcing that I had seen was for the older style cyclone mounts. I have the kind of mount in these pictures... the (bent plate) mount. (the dirtiest looking picture is mine) ...

Re: new cyclone 3000 w mid-drive kit?

Thank you for the prompt response. I will try to add spacers at point 1.the alignmrnt is straight. I think I will stiffen the motor mount Good way to check motor chain(-rings) alignment is with the chain off. Press ruler to the side of chainring and check whether there will be a cap between ruler an...

Re: new cyclone 3000 w mid-drive kit?

@ Gman...are u using any special higher quality chain tensioner or just cyclone stock ones? Stock cyclone tensioner on all my EVs. If your chain is coming off you might be having the motor mount flex and cause the chain derails. G. BINGO... I think that's it... (I feel like I owe u PayPal money). I...

Re: new cyclone 3000 w mid-drive kit?

I had a 2 stroke, before going electric, so people always heard me. My chain is slipping too, at first the chain was too short, so I put a new one on... then, too long. I took 6 links out and it looks about right... 4 would have been better. In the rear, big gears 1-4 do not slip; but, gears 5-8 sli...
