Noticed my headset moving on my last ride, so that's next on the list too.
I agree a good upgrade is a sealed headset, but it sounds like you just need to tighten it.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

the light bikes are great but the market will demand all sizes.. some video on facebook of it motocross track riding, well beyond the small bike capabilities.. 90volts, 20kw and a chassis built to handle hard enduro and motocross jumps.. I'm sold! I haven't found anything that I can't climb with my...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

I would only build something if I was improving on the design, so that is different. Uhhh isn't converting an IC to electric improving the design? :roll: I mean building something like a frame or modifying a frame, building a battery. Since you are rich you could just hire someone to build a batter...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

You can't buy an electric KTM in a 125 size. :wink: But people are enjoying building them and ultimately have a superior vehicle to the Sur Ron. Besides, hobbies aren't necessary meant to be more productive than working. They are often pursued for the enjoyment of the endeavor and rewarded in non-mo...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Some people enjoy working on things. It's often what they like to do when not working. Think it's like a hobby or something. True you can just buy something, but often it is more rewarding to build something yourself. An added bonus is you might get what you want from the beginning without complaini...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Used gas bikes can be found for cheap yes thats for sure, but if you wanna convert one you certainly have to design and fabricate many customs parts like a mounting bracket for the motor, battery case, CNC parts etc. Build a battery, do the wiring (BMS) and everything. Then there is the question: w...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

I do not consider the Sur-Ron to be anywhere near the same class as 250's. That is a whole different beast of a bike. KTM has its own electric dirt bike out that has a ridiculously good motor but it is more of a 125cc in size, I was just using a 250 as an example. Plenty of 80's, 125's etc. being c...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

There is absolutely no reason anymore to build ebikes for the most part, you will never match the quality of the Sur-Ron. The same reason you don't see anyone building dirt bikes, or building mountain bikes, finally got around to Ebikes. You will almost never match the quality of a properly built m...

Since Iam from Europe I have nothing to do with Luna and his oversea stuff. But this hair loving guy disqualified himself in his podcast asking the surron guys why they don't used bicycle chains.... Yeah, that was seriously stupid and insulting; belittling Sur Ron's engineering expertise by someone...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

What pressures are you guys running in the stock tires for trail riding? My trails are a bit rocky and high speed so I'm around 23 rear, 21 front to avoid pinch flats and squirming. I want to try lower but worried about impacts. I run around 12psi. With the FOC X Controller, it was tearing the valv...

This bike is so damn good now after I upgraded my brakes.
What brakes did you choose?
Same brakes I'm running: Shimano Saint M820s. Looks like we both have the Ice Tech rotors up front too.

Adding to what Natas said, an 18 MC rim, even if its a 1.85 x 18 is rim, is way bigger than the standard 1.4 or 1.6 wide 19 inch rims in terms of weight. 18x19 Bomber.jpg In this picture of Bomber 143, I have an 18 x 1.85 rim on the rear with a 19x1.4 rim up front.
