Re: Crystalyte TC3080 - controller options?

Had to buy another programming cable but just finished tweaking the settings ... I’m running 72v and have increased the battery amps to equivalent of 80A (it’s an EM3EV 12 FET controller so actual settings in the app are 50% of this so 40A) and phase amps to 180A equivalent. Set the 3 speed switch t...

Re: Yamasaki YM50-RE Build

Awesome work on the conversion and congratulations on getting it all certified. The bike looks great! Was very impressed with the brackets you’re using to mount the hub motor. I recently converted an 1989 Yamaha FZR250 and ended up cutting the slots in the swingarm to make dropouts and used solid a...

Re: Yamasaki YM50-RE Build

Final stage of the process is complete .... the registration changes from petrol to electric were completed yesterday by the DVLA here in the UK. Process went without a hitch - they accepted the paper work and V5 changes I sent through , no need for an inspection. https://i.ibb.co/zX93xZC/9679722-F-...

Re: Yamasaki YM50-RE Build

Yes you’re right - hub motor much easier. I think if I was building another I fancy keeping rear wheel/brake set up as-is and challenging myself with engineering the motor mount. Would need to be a large-ish bike like the Yamasaki to leave enough room for batteries. I remember I did look at the Skyt...

Re: Yamasaki YM50-RE Build

DVLA were quite helpful - I managed to speak to someone there when they weren’t accepting any paperwork due to Covid 19 and got them to record the fact they’d told me it was OK to ride still post conversion as it was MOT’d, taxed and insured. Looking at the frame, to be honest the Yamasaki was much ...

Re: Crystalyte TC3080 - controller options?

OK - I wired throttle straight to controller bypassing the CA V3 and performance is improved but still not great. I’ve damaged my cable for programming controller so waiting for another to arrive in the post. In the meantime are there are thoughts/comments on what other controller I could use that w...

Re: Yamasaki YM50-RE Build

Hi, did you get to road test the bike in the end. Really impressed by the project and curious how it worked out. Could you explain why the rs50 swing arm did not work, surely all these bikes have the same width axle space Yes managed to get it out for a couple of road tests now. Performance is grea...

Crystalyte TC3080 - controller options?

Hi I’ve got an Enduro ebike frame that I’ve been updating over the last couple of years. It’s now based around a Crystalyte TC3080 hub laced into a 24” rim. https://i.ibb.co/DVkPDWv/39-C8-B9-B9-86-C7-48-CE-8-ACF-79-D1-FA2-CF760.jpg I’ve just had to replace the battery which is now 20s7p 72v pack cap...

Re: Chinese eMoto Upgrade feasible?

I went through the same dilemma and calculations. Ended up buying a road registered bike in the UK and converting it myself using QSMotor 4Kw hub and Kelly controller. Invested in a decent battery (72V 40Ah capable of 150A bursts using Samsung 40T cells). All in with shipping for motor and controlle...

Re: Honda MT50 road legal conversion

Many thanks Spata. Yes I’ve read your post about the changes to the V5 so hopefully should be ok.

I’ve got a couple of quotes for insurance - looks like Adrian Flux are doing it now and I’ve had a couple of kit cars insured with them.

Will let you know how I get on and thanks again.

Re: Honda MT50 road legal conversion

Hi Spata I know this is an old thread but wanted to ask when you sent your V5 back to the DVLA did you just send it to normal DVLA address or the ‘K and R’ department (Kits and Rebuilds)? I’ve built a number of kit cars over the years and you have to send specific modifications forms for those to K ...

Re: Yamasaki YM50-RE Build

Managed to sort this - although I had changed the poles setting in the Kelly app for some reason it wasn’t writing the update back to the controller. Sorted now and max RPM unloaded on a paddock stand in the garage is around 1150 which is about right for max of the 4Kw motor with the battery and con...

OBDII Interface and Engine Sounds

I’m just at the stage of test riding my completed Motorcycle conversion which is built around a QS Motor 4kw hub motor and Kelly KLS7275H controller. https://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=105463&p=1552151#p1552151 It’s early days in setting the controller and battery BMS up (72v 40A...

Re: Yamasaki YM50-RE Build

Spent a bit of time today adjusting battery and controller settings. For controller I’m using the Kelly app on Android. Main settings I’ve been playing about with are: Max speed 8,000 (factory 4,000) MidSpeed Forw Speed 100 (factory 50) Current Percent 100 Battery current limit 50 Accel time 3 (fact...

Re: Kelly Android App - Speed value

Adjusted my controller settings for max speed setting. Kelly app now reporting motor at 5,500 RPM - clearly it can be nowhere near this figure for what is only a 4Kw hub motor set into a 17” wheel. If it was that the bike (albeit unloaded as on a paddock stand) would be doing over 300mph! Anyone got...

Kelly Android App - Speed value

I’m in the process of adjusting the settings for a KLS7275H controller using the Kelly Android app over Bluetooth. I see from the manual that the max speed is set to 4000 rpm and sure enough the motor (QS 17” 4000W) is maxing our at this figure when I look at the monitor section of the app. Does any...

Re: Conversion Honda motorcycle to electric 96v - 8000w hubmotor - 6.3kWh

Swingarm is too wide so needs the plates to step width down. As plates are being used they can also be made with the axle flat machined in.

Re: Conversion Honda motorcycle to electric 96v - 8000w hubmotor - 6.3kWh

Looks good. My adapter plates also had to be fitted to the hub motor first before slotting into the swingarm. I deliberately made them a fight fit for the box section of the swingarm as I didn’t want any movement once bolted up - I needed to use a soft faced mallet to get them in but approach works ...

Re: Yamasaki YM50-RE Build

Decided to push and cut the bottom of the petrol tank out and check the tank would fit over the controller and wiring before connecting everything up and doing a full test. Plenty of room under the tank and didn’t take too long to cut out a large enough area in the base of the tank. https://i.ibb.co...

Re: Yamasaki YM50-RE Build

Alongside sorting out a better torque arm clamp for the hub motor I’ve been focusing on getting the controller and battery/box mounted in the frame. Controller fits perfectly on the frame under the tank leaving plenty of surface area free under the heat sink. https://i.ibb.co/kGx1Vzg/490412-A8-8-BB8...

Re: Yamasaki YM50-RE Build

Hi Tyler - yes the hub motor is supplied with very small torque plates for each side - I’ve seen these used on lower power (up to 5,000 watt) bikes sold out of China where the swing arm width is narrow enough so these bolt to the swingarm sides. I’m currently making up a clamp bracket for the side o...
