Re: Swytch ebike kit ebrake cable

https://www.swytchbike.com/p/hydraulic-brake-sensors/ ... link to the hydraulic brake sensor

agreed, it's a reed switch. the connector is a blue 4 pin higo connector. everything for sale third party on amazon seems to be of the 3 pin yellow higo type.

Their kits are terrible. I wouldn't touch them. The controllers are not matched to the motor's continuous capabilities, and as far as i know, not programmable. That 1000W motor is wound WAY too fast ( 40mph winding, which requires 2000W continuous, on a 1000W motor? WTF? ) That being said the 1500W...

All good points and suggestions. Will look for holo stickers and talk with a friend's about fashioning a lockable battery cage for my battery on my hauler... https://photos.app.goo.gl/X6WYFQubNJ1V8hBi6

Thanks for tip. Found similar part on amazon. Fingers crossed!

Took it for a ride with dogs sans power other day. Rides smooth for a bicycle at least! (I do need to tweak derailleur though zzz).
