Re: Looking for some advice on a conversion kit.

Once it's wired up, you simply plug in 1 cable to charge. Once charging is finished you unplug and ride away. No teardowns, changing harness etc Yes, that sounds like the ticket :) Now I just need to see if my Cannonade Jekyll 400 will accept a BBSxx motor without any modifications. I researched up...
