Re: 1962 Honda Benly goes electric

Wow the batteries look big for that frame! Will you build an enclosure for them?
Was it hard to find leaf cells? Can't wait to see your project finished.

Re: Electric moped cafe racer

Ok i just decided ( and the wife) that we will convert our 50cc scooter into electric. We are not looking for crazy performance, but something along the original engines capabilities ( more power is welcome though). This scooter has 13 inch wheels. Is a mid drive suitable for a conversion like this?...

Re: Electric moped cafe racer

Unfortunately i can't find a hub motor in EU that can beat the price of a middrive kit i found that includes a 50a controller. 50A is quite weak. It won't be thrilling performance :wink: What's your budget for this build? I can spend 1000€ give or take, for all the parts. I already have the bike fo...

Re: Electric moped cafe racer

A hub motor is my preference, but a middrive is cheaper. I'm a bit surprized by this, are you sure? What motors did you compare? If you have all the necessary tools and know how to use them then it's a very good start. Next important point would be for you to figure out a ballpark figure of the bud...

Re: Electric moped cafe racer

Sorry to say it, but that's not really the nost appropriate frame to do an electric conversion, it will make things more complicated than you original plan to use a scooter. First reason being that it will not be very easy to fit batteries in there. Second reason being that I'm not sure the rear sw...

Re: Electric moped cafe racer

Yes the whole system needs to be compatible with each other. Basically the battery and its BMS determine how much power you can extract continuously and for a short peak. The 1800W continuous that the battery you linked to can provide should be enough to reach and maintain moped speeds of max. 50km...

I think you'll be better off to aim at 30mph/50km/h if you want to keep the motor cool enough and not trip the BMS when needing to go uphill. You might even downtune the shunt in the controller to lower the amp draw.
Or choose another battery maybe? One that can give me more amps?

Re: Electric moped cafe racer

To prevent the BMS from tripping you need a controller that stays beneath the 30A continuous and 60A peak rating. You could go for the Kunray 60V 2000W kit from the Czech warehouse to avoid taxes: https://aliexpress.com/item/4001053542520.html?spm=a2g0z.12010612.8148356.30.6b9f6307R9cI7o (hope the ...

Re: Electric moped cafe racer

I can't see what cells they use? 30A @ 60V = 1800W continuous. Is that enough for your intended use (controller and motor)? They don't mention the cells, but i can call them and find out. I haven't found motor and controller yet. I'm searching on ebay from eu sellers. I will probably go for a mid d...

The kit was bought 25-04-2018 and has done almost 150klm in total. I will send the receipt of purchase. I changed the handle bar, the brakes and added a suspe...

Re: Need advice on electric dirtbike

What is the reason for wanting to fit an RC style motor to a dirt bike? They are designed more for high speed than high torque, which is usually evident in the size of the output shaft. To get around this you need some sort of gear reduction system which will just complicate the design and make the...

Re: E scooter vs E light cafe racer

They are from China so you'll need to pay import taxes. No idea how much that is for your country? And you will need a serious battery that can provide enough amps to take full advantage of the possibilities and have adequate range. So a 72V 30Ah pack (but rather more Ah) is needed. In that case, i...

Re: E scooter vs E light cafe racer

That's a better basis to start with indeed :thumb: I would use a mid drive motor with chain to the rear wheel. That way you can use different gear ratio's to find the best one for acceleration vs speed. And you won't need a new rear wheel/brake. That would look much better than different wheels fro...
