Re: Kawasaki Z125 build

Awesome build, very clean. Just a few remarks and suggestions, if I may: -You should put a second nut on your motor axis, to secure the first one. If it gets loose because of vibrations then you'll ruin your motor. -150A seems quite weak since you're using a 8KW motor. I dont know if your battery a...

Re: Kawasaki Z125 build

This is perfect. Ive been looking to build something similar out of a Honda Groom. Might I ask where you purchased your battery from, and also how did you assemble the motor to the rear hub? Thanks! Here's the motor and battery. I'm not sure I understand the question about assembling the motor and ...

Re: Kawasaki Z125 build

yeah, thank you so much for these helpful infos! I have a feeling this might not pass tech inspection just because it is unconventional and would not work if the controller turned off. Maybe you would be better off using the clutch level for braking but also keeping the rear foot brake? Here you se...

Re: Kawasaki Z125 build

Thanks for replying on the controller settings. Very helpful. Can I ask - did you use mild steel or aluminium for your swing arm plugs? I’ve used mild steel as I was worried the axle on the hub motor would chew through steel but they are quite heavy I used 6061-T6 aluminum. The motor axle and the p...

Re: Kawasaki Z125 build

Hi Zooo I followed your build and pics in detail, and I love your build, however I dont like the modern style of the bike, I am oldschool, I love bikes from the seventies (which has an advantage here in Germany with extremely strict legal restrictions: for bikes before 2000 no EMC, Electromagnetic ...

Re: Kawasaki Z125 build

Congrats on a great build. I’m just about to use the same KLS7275H controller and QS hub motor for a conversion of an Aprilia RS50. Motor is only 4Kw to keep equivalent 50cc power rating for the bike. Any chance you could share/post your controller settings? I’m using the Android app via Bluetooth ...

Re: Kawasaki Z125 build

I'm working on a Honda Grom build, which is pretty much the same bike. I'm planning to get a 5kw QS hub motor, but I'm worried about heat issues and choosing the right kv. What phase current are you running? Have you noticed any issues with heat dissapation given that the motor is directly in conta...

Re: Kawasaki Z125 build

Great build. Now that you have had the bike for a bit what have been some challenges or things you would have done differently? Is it fitting in with your lifestyle. Have you found it easy enough to charge? Did you consider having a removable battery? I'm about 600 miles in at this point and still ...

Re: Kawasaki Z125 build

Fantastic work, love it. What kind of speed and range are you getting out of that little beast? Top speed is around ~60 mph, which is about as fast as you want to go on a bike this size. I've been kind of scared to push the battery too low but I think the range is somewhere around 60 - 70 miles. I ...

Awesome build, looks really tidy and practical.

Did you do anything in terms of registration? Or just don't mention it to the authorities?
Thanks! It was registered before I started this project so I'm just keeping it on the books as a normal Kawasaki Z125.
