Re: Cycle Analyst V3 preview and first beta release

Hi Justin. What would cause the CA3 and PR to exhibit the following behavior? While riding, I notice that the bike accelerates and reaches a higher top speed at about 2/3 throttle. At WOT current displayed on the display drops about 10amps. Resistive throttle with 0-4.5v read on CA3 Throttle in set ...

Re: What might cause an xt-90 anti spark mechanism to fail

Actually, the sure way to cook them is simple. The antispark function is accomplished with a 2 watt resistor. All you need to do is plug the connector in slowly and the resistor will overheat. Plug it in quickly and they last much longer. The other thing to contribute to the issue is if there is too...

Re: Grin Phase Runner / CA3 and BBSHD

Guys, I mentioned occasionally getting instantaneous overcurrent faults during part throttle acceleration and resolved it. After auto tune, I set current bandwidth and PLL to 0. Then I went to advanced screen and set Ki and Kp manually. I actually left KP alone. (auto tune value of 118) but lowered ...

Re: Grin Phase Runner / CA3 and BBSHD

Seriously? You rode your motorcycle on bicycle trails in Topanga State Park? What an F'n jerk! It is people like you who will cause the Rangers to ban all ebikes from the park. What a selfish self centered asshole. And insult to injury, you used the throttle all the way, so that there would be no d...

Re: Grin Phase Runner / CA3 and BBSHD

Guys seriously, let the Hugo's go and move on. Amazon has an 11 dollar kit with every JST connector you'll ever need for the rest of your life. Just get the crimper and watch a YouTube video how to use them. Soooo much nicer when you can make the wires the length you need anyway. Besides, you'll wan...

Cyclone with new Luna 3D bracket and Phaserunner

Hey guys. Thought I'd chime in. Build is done and while I've only ridden it a few times, I figured this and subsequent posts may be helpful. I've had a BBSHD running 88v for 6 months in combo with a Phaserunner. Top speed has hit 53Mph and its been dead reliable. Thought I'd try a cyclone to see if ...

Re: Compact Field Oriented Controller, ASI + Grin, limited run

I own a phase runner and absolutely love it. I recently got a cyclone which was only available with a speed control from Luna. Got the 72v ASI BAC 800 and was sent a controller with zero documentation. The kit is advertised as plug and play as well as pre tuned. The connectors on the controller were...

Re: Grin Phase Runner / CA3 and BBSHD

I did run at 52v for quite a while. The advantage of higher voltage is the ability to stay in 1 gear from a stop up to top speed and lower current draw while at cruising. Acceleration is greatly improved. I made some pretty important advancements today. By setting cycle analyst ramps as follows, I w...

Re: Grin Phase Runner / CA3 and BBSHD

Per the previous post, 4 pole pairs also works. The Phase runner just compensates with a lower calculated kv. Both 8 and 4 worked for me. Factoring in the gear ratio made the auto tune fail every time even if I played with other settings.

Re: Grin Phase Runner / CA3 and BBSHD

Hey guys. More updates. This really has been much easier than expected. Internal Bafang Pas sensor connected and works perfectly. I simply connected the sensor plug in the BBSHD to the Cycle Analyst per the manual. The configuration in the CA walked has a graphic which shows if its connected correct...

Re: Grin Phase Runner / CA3 and BBSHD

Hey guys. Sorry to not post recently. Bike is continuing to evolve. The original Bafang controller was removed from the aluminum housing and reinstalled on the motor as an cover. I’ve added another bank of battery packs to the down tube to double my capacity. Basically 3 seven cell Lipo packs in ser...

Re: BBSHD + Grin Phaserunner (52V okay, 72V problem)

I have my Phase runner running on 21s Lipo (88v). Phase current is set to 96a Max current continuous is 46a Flux weakening set to 32 amps Ramp is 12v/sec Rad set to 1.5 Min throttle output is set. 01v above minimum to just get the motor to barely spin while coasting. Current draw not moving is about...

Re: Grin Phase Runner / CA3 and BBSHD

I do really like the CA3 but if you're cool with things now, I'm not sure it would be worth it. When you want more power, the CA3 with the external Grin Phase Runner is simple to connect and very beneficial.

Re: Grin Phase Runner / CA3 and BBSHD

So I've been running this setup everyday on my commute and whole heartedly can say it's simply amazing. Hall sensors can be wired anyway you choose however I simply omitted the purple wire as it's not used. I have been tinkering with a few settings and even managed to eliminate the initial jerk of t...

Grin Phase Runner / CA3 and BBSHD

I thought I would post this because while I was researching this combo, it was very hard to find the info I needed. Hopefully this helps you if you're considering this combo. For starters, I feel compelled to say that I tried for a couple months to buy the "plug and play" version from ElectricERT.co...
