Re: Odd thing

Of course that’s what’s happening. It takes more power to accelerate than to maintain speed.

Re: Throttle use with trigger shifters?

Try this low profile throttle.

Should work with trigger shifters. I got one myself, but I’ve not put it on because both the throttle and my cable are female connectors. I’m not sure where to get an affordable adapter.

Re: Built my first bike! Help me make it even better.

My current choice light is a variable voltage headlight. I’m hoping to install a taillight as well. To use the controller output I need a higo connector. I think I saw somewhere on the forums about that.

Re: Built my first bike! Help me make it even better.

Thanks for all the info on lights. I’m planning on installing a headlight, tail light, and led strips along with a switch. Question on running the lights straight from the battery. How do I do it? (Sorry for such a noob question, I’m new to electronics.). I presume I wire up the lights in parallel w...

Re: PAS is backwards

Thanks. Turning the bike over meant I found the correct orientation. Now I need to figure out how to mount it in that orientation. If I reverse the sensor on the bracket, it puts the sensor too close to the disk, and they rub. I don’t have anything that can bend the bracket (my pliers are bending th...

Re: Built my first bike! Help me make it even better.

Thanks, the trouble was finding the right display model to search for. It’s not a KT-3, as best I can tell. Anyone know what the model name is? After some googling I found a list of parameter settings for this display/controller. For those interested see pics below. I’ll post as a separate thread fo...

Re: PAS is backwards

That’s creative. It doesn’t work if I flip the sensor around. It does work if I place it on the outside of the magnetic disk. Are there some wires I can flip that will reverse direction?

So grateful for all the knowledge in this forum!

PAS is backwards

The PAS that came with my kit seems to be backwards. I installed it on the non-drive (left) side of my bike, and it only works when I spin the pedals backwards. Flipping the magnet disk makes no difference. I tried flipping the sensor, as in this video https://youtu.be/ZwJhIGMDANA but then it doesn’...

Re: Built my first bike! Help me make it even better.

Thanks. For the info. Rewiring part of the controller is def beyond my skills/tools at this point. Nobody expects to see break lights on a bike, but given the challenges of Manhattan traffic, I want all the safety advantages I can get. And if break lights get the folks behind me to slow down when I’...

Re: Built my first bike! Help me make it even better.

Thanks for the suggestion of motorcycle throttle brands, I’ll check them out.

I have torque arms. They are not installed yet, but will be when I change my tires on Sunday.

Built my first bike! Help me make it even better.

Hi Team, I’ve been reading this forum for a bit, and I just built my first ebike from this kit . It’s a 36V 500W 12AH system. I learned a lot putting it together, and now, of course, I want to start upgrading, and I’d love your advice. I’m grateful for all I’ve learned on this forum already. 5705070...
