Re: Bluetooth Programmable Controller Mystery

I'm currently using a thumb throttle on the right side. I still have the twist throttle with the digital read out but thought I'd use the thumb throttle and see if I like that better than the twist. I have a digital multi-meter. And this huge 20ah battery is supposed to be 48volts. So I should hook ...

Re: Bluetooth Programmable Controller Mystery

All great stuff to know. Another newbie question. I went out and bought a CA2 (?) a few months ago thinking that would solve some of my throttle issues. I never got around to hooking it up as there were no compatible connectors on the controller. Was the CA2 strictly a Bafang kind of thing. Like I s...

Bluetooth Programmable Controller Mystery

Maybe not that much of a mystery but I can't find any documentation on the Android ap for a Yuyangking bluetooth programable controller. Bought the controller directly from Cyclone (China) for their 3k mid drive motor. Here's what the ap interface looks like on my smart phone. http://i1255.photobuck...

Re: Programming bluetooth controller - HELP!

I'll try to do what you suggest. But I think I've already tried it, but I'll try again (maybe I'm missing something). But I'm just curious why the "Adjust Accelerator Curve" doesn't actually adjust anything other than "shifting throttle response" and offers no actual "adjustment" per se... or am I m...

Re: Programming bluetooth controller - HELP!

well there were two issues with the stock controller that Luna shipped with the Cyclone 3k mid drive kit. 1) the throttle 'start' came about 1/16th of a turn from full 'off', i.e. twisting the throttle from a 'dead stop' (off) power to the motor didn't come until maybe 10 to 15 degrees of twist. tha...

Programming bluetooth controller - HELP!

Hey everybody, Bought one of the Bluetooth programmable controllers (Yuyangking) for my Cyclone 3000 mid-drive. So I have the thing all wired up but instructions on programming and operation are almost non-existent. Yep, there's a 5-minute-long YouTube video but it's pretty much worthless. Ditto a 4...

Made for each other?

This is sorta along the same lines as an earlier post... Took my Cyclone 3k powered Gravity Deadeye monster out on the dunes again today. Hoping that a new throttle would eliminate some of the issues that have plagued this bike since the beginning. While the new 'no-brand' 1/4-turn Chinese throttle ...

Re: Cycle Analyst V3 on a Cyclone mid-drive

Well my Gravity/Cyclone build was a little different than most (probably?) I fabbed some custom mounts so I could get it up inside the frame above the bottom bracket. I know the battery is tooooooooo big by about 200%, but I wanted something 48v/20ah that I could use to power an electric outboard mo...

Re: Crappy throttle issue with Cyclone powered fatty

So I bought a V3 Cycle Analyst...thinking that would eliminate some/all of my issues with crappy throttle response. I also bought a couple of cheapo throttles off Ebay because I wasn't really thrilled about the throttle that shipped with the Cyclone 3k from LUNA CYCLE! But now I'm thinking my money ...

Re: Cycle Analyst V3 on a Cyclone mid-drive

Alrighty then... relatively new to ebikes but thanks for all that EXTREMELY VALUABLE INPUT "flat tire". NOT! Yeah, I kinda like the amount of power the Cyclone puts out. Sure it's a little noisy but damn it can lift the wheel from a dead stop with my fat ass (220 lbs.) on board! (and that's with a 4...

Cycle Analyst V3 on a Cyclone mid-drive

Hey all, So I love the 3k Cyclone mid-drive on my Gravity Deadeye Monster. But the throttle response was completely unacceptable for technical low-speed riding on sand dunes here on the Oregon coast. Was like a frickin' on/off switch that you never knew the 'on' point from a dead stop. 5-10 degrees ...

Re: Crappy throttle issue with Cyclone powered fatty

that's the bike, motor kit, battery, etc. mind you. But still $1,500 for an eFat bike is a lot of dough.
And a quick check of programmable controllers (from China!) on Ebay tells me the cheap ones go for $200 plus. Think I'd rather try a couple of resisters first!

Re: Crappy throttle issue with Cyclone powered fatty

Yeah, now that I think of it I'm going to visit my brother up in Alsea next week (?) and I'll bring my cannon. Fun doesn't get much cheaper than that! Well I think you've answered all my questions. The bike was dangerous to ride the last time. Would easily lift the front wheel from a dead stop and t...

Re: Crappy throttle issue with Cyclone powered fatty

well it doesn't sound like rocket science...more like potato cannon science! If I read you right I need to find the ground wire from the throttle. Hmmmm? I have a yellow and blue leads in one plug from the throttle and red, green, and black on the other plug. How would I find the 'ground' lead? God ...

Crappy throttle issue with Cyclone powered fatty

I'm sure this has been covered before... A couple of months ago I finished my Cyclone Deadeye Monster build. We moved to coastal Oregon about a year ago and this fatty should be ideal for cruising the beach and the dunes/backwoods. The bike has a Nexxus 3-speed IGH hub with a 3000w Cyclone mid-drive...
