Also what is the 3speed box connection for?
Can you point to it?

If you have a meter, you can identify which wire is ground. The other two are signal wires. The typical wiring looks like this.

Standards are necessary for many industries to grow.
Yet they are not necessary for you to hit the buy button, which is what the manufactureres care about. If you clicked on the buy, you clicked on reinforcing no standards.

Re: What does overvolting mean?

Aha. So if I run it at the same amps but higher voltage it will not get significantly hotter than before? But If I also raise the amps I could be in trouble? Does it have to be less amps to work? Or could it be the same amps as before only higher voltage? There are two ratings that you have to cons...

Think of your wall outlets, and whether they are better as they are, as sockets, or whether having hot prongs extending out from the wall would be better.

I have a cheap ish 250W 36V front hub from CSC. It takes 4 complete turns of the pedals before the motor starts. The motor also seems slow to accelerate. It has a sw900 display.

Aha so you would go with the thermal camera then right?
Nope. I don't think either will see through the housing. You could use your hand, which is probably just as inaccurate measure of the internal temps as the camera.

Re: How to know how much battery volts the ebike controller can take?

How do I know how high I can go on a battery without frying the controller to death? Inside controller.png Most 48V KT controllers will work at 52V. Often the MOSFETs and capacitors are limiting factors. The cap in your pic is rated at 63V, so you wouldn't want to exceed that, and fully charged 52V...

Re: Gazelle Chamonix conversion

Most of this you probably already know. 14s is usually called a 52 volt nominal pack, and 13s is 48 volt nominal. I prefer 14s because when used with a 48 volt controller, the low voltage cutoff in the controller is set to 40-42 volts in case you're using lead acid batteries. 42 volts / 14s = 3 vol...

is it as simple as just adding a correct value resistor?
Two in a voltage divider arrangement seems like it would work. You want a divider that divides the voltage by 13S/20S.

Rear brake calliper is fitted. And it's fair to say that these kinds of brakes are not all that great. But, it's better than nothing and once the regen is working, it should be satisfactory.
It looks like you have enough clearance to increase the rotor by a couple of sizes.

You wanted to go with a square layout instead of hexagonal?
