Re: Best place to buy a BBHSD

Maybe but theres still all that bs on the outside that uglies up a build . ^this I ride a lot of trails and I just don't want more things to get hooked on branches and banged up. That's in addition to the aesthetics. The stock controller is good up to 45A and 52V, which pushes my fat butt 30 mph an...

Re: Best place to buy a BBHSD

All bafang mid drive internal controllers are known to fail. Too much heat being next to the motor. I'm not convinced it's heat, not with the way they seal the controller. You won't find a thin silicone gasket held on by crazy glue on a car or motorcycle. Controllers should work with heat, they don...

Re: Best place to buy a BBHSD

So I started installing the kit today. Bafang is still up to their old tricks. The silicone gasket between the controller and case is STILL glued to the case side with what appears to be a cyanoacrylate (ie. Crazy glue) This isn't even a design flaw, this is bad engineering. You don't use a hard set...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

So why pretend nuclear can't supply "as much energy as fossil fuels". "Fission, it's not just for blowing things up." ......nobody thinks Nuclear “can’t” supply enough,.. its just that choice of energy source is becoming more dictated by public opinion and Politics, than any logical, practical or s...

Thanks for the input. My BBSHD kit with 17.5ah battery is on the way. Just waiting on the slow boat now. I'm pretty excited to put it together.
That's a good combo. Do the controller mod and enjoy life at 2500W (if you got a 50A BMS)

Re: BBSHD - Not using set speed limits

Alright I think I figured it out. I was testing the speed limit with the back wheel off the ground spinning freely, instead of actually riding it. I guess without some resistance the motor controller isn't able to keep up with the momentum of the free-spinning wheel. I tested my electric scooter th...

Re: Best place to buy a BBHSD

I have the controller off . I never saw any screws other than the three hex screws around the perimeter . I'm waiting on my new controller so I'm dead in the water now . Those just hold the housing to the motor case. You can kind of see the screws holding the controller in at 3 and 9 o'clock, but t...

Re: BBSHD - Not using set speed limits

Throttle and PAS are different modes, with throttle given priority to override PAS.

I think you can tweak your PAS 0 settings to get what you want. If you set limit current% to 1 and then speed limit% to whatever the math works out to you can have a mode that gives you your throttled cruise control.

We need non-fossil energy sources. However, since these sources will not be able to supply as much energy as fossil fuels, we must deploy them strategically

Re: Best place to buy a BBHSD

****** 2screws ******


I edited my previous post to reflect this. There's actually 2 phillips head bolts with square washers that hold the controller to the housing. One by the wires and one opposite to it.

Sometimes the potting covers them, sometimes it doesn't.

Re: Best place to buy a BBHSD

Okay , I'll give that a go , thanks . I assume 1/16 or so for the gasket or same as a water thermostat on a car ? I'll yank my cruiser bikes controller out and do that one too . I'm pretty sure it's 1/16 that I used. Fel-Pro rubberized cork. It's a poor design. The housing is thin and so is the gas...

Re: Best place to buy a BBHSD

It came with a rubber gasket . Silicone. It's garbage. Pop the electronics out of the dead one. There's 2 screws in the corner and by the wires you have to take out. Pull up on the wires and wiggle the controller out. Then you can trace the housing on gasket paper. I prefer cork. A leather punch he...

Re: Best place to buy a BBHSD

I'm surprised, I never had an issue with the controller once I started putting a proper gasket on it.

Did you use cork or just regular gasket paper?

It's not a fair comparison. BBSHD is a throttle monster and the TSDZ2 is a PAS poon hound.

Re: How do you size the right Mid Drive?

So I went with the BBSHD and 52v 17.5 ah triangle pack. I was torn between the BBSHD and Tenshong. I started looking at the TenShong because I really like the idea of torque sensing and pedal assist. More natural feel more of a real assist. Keeps the bike lighter and more nimble but also let's it f...

Re: Best place to buy a BBHSD

If you are in Arizona Luna is just as good as any. Covid has increased shipping costs from China so there's no price advantage. I think they have 100mm BB in stock for $639 right now.

I'm looking for a motor only, no controller bare bones unit but nobody will sell me one without a controller.
