Re: Upgrading Prebuilt: Michael Blast Greaser

The cafe racer seat arrived today: 20200117_142907.jpg 20200117_142941.jpg My initial plan is to have posts fabricated like the ones on the saddle seat, and then use the clamp on the seat post. This will let me adjust it's positioning to test the best fit. The fenders on the bike are too small compa...

Re: Upgrading Prebuilt: Michael Blast Greaser

I ran the motor/controller/battery plan through the calculator: https://www.ebikes.ca/tools/simulator.h ... e=mountain
It doesn't have the amount of speed I was expecting.

Re: Upgrading Prebuilt: Michael Blast Greaser

Grin is suggesting a GMAC kit which seems to fit, since I'm planning on using Hailong casings the Baserunner would be the best controller to go with as it should fit my needs as well as fit within one of the cases. They also suggested the RH212 kit if I wanted direct drive. I've also ordered some el...

Re: Upgrading Prebuilt: Michael Blast Greaser

-you seem concerned about Canada regulations -but if your not riding like a moron the cops don't bug -batteries, learn to make them or expect to pay around $1500 or more I'm just concerned about the word of the regulations and how I can "technically" follow them while getting the most out of my bik...

Re: Upgrading Prebuilt: Michael Blast Greaser

The reason why I wanted a 72V system was because I was under the impression the higher the voltage, the better the efficiency. I think it would be best for me to upgrade the controller/batter/motor so I'm less likely to burn out the motor under the riding I do. After looking through the options and ...

Re: Upgrading Prebuilt: Michael Blast Greaser

After a lot of gusto I was able to get the connection to the LED off and found a red 2-pin connector, I'm assuming to find available voltage for a circuit I would just use a multimeter with those two pins? (edit: found out that it is not possible) I'm also looking online for another 2-pin cable so I...

Re: Upgrading Prebuilt: Michael Blast Greaser

I figured out how to remove the battery, the controller will just take a few screws. There are only three wires that come from the controller and they run through the frame of the bike.

Re: Upgrading Prebuilt: Michael Blast Greaser

I opened up the shell to see how things are setup inside: 20191220_191049.jpg There seems to be a lot of unused space and the shell is twice as wide as the battery. I wasn't able to figure out how to remove the battery itself, I have a key for it to unlock and I see what looks like a button to depre...

Re: Upgrading Prebuilt: Michael Blast Greaser

I think waiting for faster speeds until I have a bike with proper suspension is what I'll have to do. I'm still planning on changing the shell as it got in the way of the bit of peddling I do and the seat as I want to enhance the cafe racer aesthetic as well as carry a passenger. If I still wanted t...

Re: Upgrading Prebuilt: Michael Blast Greaser

With my stock bike I'm still able to hit 38km/h in optimal conditions on full throttle. I've never rode a bike on a highway before, I have friends that are cyclists that can help me adjust to the riding conditions once things are nice out but they also have to be available. The furthest I could see ...

Upgrading Prebuilt: Michael Blast Greaser

I was looking for a mode of transportation that would work for me and that was available for me to try before buying. This led me to purchasing a 350W Michael Blast Greaser from a local power sport shop in July and when the weather was good enough for me to ride it was a great first electric. I want...

Interested in EV and the Motorino XMb

I've been interested in EV's for a long time, when purchasing my last car I swore to myself that my next vehicle would be electric. Some years ago my mobility started to deteriorate and after lots of various tests to pin down the issue, I was diagnosed with the degenerative neural disorder AMN. I so...
