Re: Big update to the biker bar & order of the forums

First, can you confirm that Mr. Fechter is the only person with the ability to delete a user account with all it's posts? Do Marty, Methods, or Ypedal have that capability? Or did they in the past? Also, do you think PM streams are actually private? Do you have the ability to verify if the plugin to...

Re: Hydrogen Drive - We Made the Battery Obsolete

So, you are gonna have a large, pressurized, metal can full of hydrogen, mounted on a bicycle, and you somehow think this is a good idea? BTW, it's been done, and did not sell; SFAIK, it did not get past the mock-up stage. Somebody involved in this attended, and graduated from, an actual accredited ...

Re: Big update to the biker bar & order of the forums

I thought the purpose was to advocate to the general public to promote ebikes. I guess a focus on the 3% to 5% who DIY is one way to go. The site name is nice, hippy-dippy and all, self-sufficient and self-sustaining. Except, while you could easily make the site pay its own way, you choose to live o...

Re: Overvolting Bafang m420

Here is a tip. If you cannot supply any useful information, it is extremely unlikely that you will get any useful answers. Identifying the "brade" of the bike, meaning the company which implemented the restrictions you are trying to circumvent, would be a useful first step. An educated gue...

Re: Thermal Management System for battery pack.

The diagram is near-totally non-informational, does not appear to take into account the direction of airflow while moving, and the whole exercise is generally unnecessary.

Re: Supposedly E06-Undervoltage

You describe two messages, one "error 07" and the other "E06". These are very different, and should be more similar. Clarify. You describe while in self-learning what appears to be the motor rotating, possibly in response to throttle commands. Clarify, also verify it still does t...

First, you got hosed. Second, you really, REALLY need to learn to shop smarter. That price is WAY too high, and the vendor is sketchy.

Re: Battery won’t charge.

Verify that the indicated voltage for each group was 4.71, and not 4.21. The second reading would indicate a significant issue, and/or a slightly inaccurate DVM. Should be 4.20. The FIRST reading would indicate an EXTREMELY DANGEROUS situation and severe hazard of destructive fire. Several readings ...

Re: Hi All New Member...Need help with my ebike badly

Start by telling us as much as you possibly can about your motor and your battery. Both might have some identifying marks on them. Pictures might be useful. I can't see them from here. Describe the bike, especially wheel diameter. I can't see it from here. Also need an estimate of just how stupid an...

Re: Battery won’t charge.

It must surely be a coincidence that just two days ago, everything was fine and then you replaced both of the output connectors on the main battery leads, and then, immediately after that, the charging problem suddenly manifests itself. My guess would be that the two wires touched at some point and ...

You did not answer the question.

Does you bike charge thru the discharge leads or do you use a separate charging port?

First, I would make a mandatory rule that anyone who is a vendor or who works for a vendor must identify themselves as such. Commercial products are part of the hobby, that means many have a profit motive, and THAT means many serious issues. As for the "like" system, let me give you an exa...

Re: Brainpower controller and s866 display ,problems

For future readers trying to solve a similar problem, it would be VERY important to note that your bike was originally a 24V system which you are upgrading to 48V. See, what that would almost certainly mean is that the headlight is a 24V unit and some smart guy would be able to tell you that it abso...
