Sevcon size 4 - 48v - 450A

Hey guys, I've got a 48v (69.9v max, so 14S lipo) sevcon size 4 controller. These spit out huge power for their size, 450A and 540A peak! This is technically used but has barely been off the bench. It was fitted to a motorcycle conversion that was never finished, let alone registered, so it's only d...

Re: Coast -> throttle apply -> dead. KT72SVPRK + KT-LCD3

I'm experiencing a similar thing after coasting and it's not the battery causing the power fade. I've tried it with a fully charged lipo pack so there's no way it can't deliver the power a small controller is asking of it. When trying to configure the motor P settings it would also cause a dimming o...

Re: Stealth FUTR owners builds and pics

Nice work CD. Are you printing with ABS ? It'll be interesting to see how it holds up - it looks like that narrow section where it bolts to the mount is a weak spot, though I guess if it's solid it'd be strong enough. I use a topeak front mudguard cable tied directly to the shock mount and find it's...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

+1 to post pics!
I've only seen this pic on their facebook page of the blue X model. Looks like a bigger sprocket and different graphics on the battery and controller but otherwise largely unchanged.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Yeah I'd say just rebranding - can't really be illegal as car manufacturers have been doing it for years. They went to a fair length though, even putting a little carbon sticker over the speedo display so you can't see where it says surron! I'm guessing they also painted the machined face of the con...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Well was that mythbuster site really put up by Luna? Why didn't they host it on their own domain if it was their write up? The articles alternate between 1st and 3rd person when talking about Luna.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

This Model X seems to have a different motor as well because they declared 5400 rpm against the 4500 rpm of the standard model. Yes most likely just field weakening as the others have said. It's well documented you can make a motor spin much faster with the same input voltage and current with field...

I just can't believe such tiny rubber hairs cut through the aluminum! Wow! That's pretty crazy. As you said it must have been transferring grit than than just the straight rubber.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Wow that's super impressive. Hard to believe such a little motor rated at 3kw can handle peaks of 10x that. Especially when Artur claims he overheated an early version stock bike. Given the abuse I've hurled at mine with no issue I found that hard to believe. It must have had some shocking tuning or...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

How's the colour in person ? Is it powdercoat or anodizing ? It looks fairly thin in the pics but I guess it's hard to tell. In the pedal kit tutorial video posted ages back the swing arm and main frame are a different colour which looked pretty average. As for the battery charging thing, as I alway...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Incredible it was so well matched with a 450, was he giving it everything the 450 had? These are no where near a 450 in any aspect - at least not for general use. The only place you'd keep or up is on a tight twisty track where the 450 can't get the power down. I rode my surron and a ktm 450 back t...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Next will be a 52 tooth and I will do 22 pcs. 52t could be the pick of the bunch I reckon. Talking to Adam he hasn't measured the top speed with the 58t yet but he said it's quite noticeably less. It sounds like it could leave the top end a little too light on for general riding, which I don't thin...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

the RST's are $50 more from the factory I'm still not sure how this adds up. I dont know what the forks cost from fastace but I do know how much the RSTs are wholesale. And I know that what surron charges for a set of the fastace as a replacement spare part is twice the wholesale price of the RSTs....

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

The RST is a pretty budget fork and claiming they're a premium product is a bit rich. I looked into buying these to package with the FUTR frames a few years back but ended up going with DNM, even though they were a little bit more expensive. DNM aren't the bees knees of suspension, and for the price...

Do not attempt to add air pressure to the forks without reading the manual first, you may do a Hyena. :roll: In my defense, they were already leaking otherwise I wouldn't have touched them :P It could be that having the forks ratchet strapped down for shipping is putting too much pressure on the se...

it has the power to handle any kind of terrain.
Except it has zoom forks, so you'd best not take it off more than a tapered gutter :lol:
