Re: Trials Motorcycle - 1st Build. Qs-motor +Votol

Now here is a piece I can use right now. :) Love how fast Trials Super Store ships stuff.
My current kill switch is a nightmare, this will go on tomorrow morning.

Re: Trials Motorcycle - 1st Build. Qs-motor +Votol

Don't totally discount the idea of a BMS. A lot of times you start out with an ambitious goal of building a complex wiring setup and by the time you buy all the little adapters and connectors you end up at the same dollar amount than if you had just started with a BMS. Yes, you continue to make val...

Also, what was the cost of that motor/gearbox combo?
The new motor cost was $308 (USD)
The EM150SP Votol Controller was $210 (USD)

I was told that the shaft has also been updated on this motor, and someone stated a 520 sprocket can fit. Time will tell. :)

Re: Another GasGas trials bike conversion

That is one hell of a back yard. Nice to be able to hop on a do a quick spin. Your skills must be improving big time! How much HP/Torque you think you have? Also, with your air box removed, did you add any other support for the rear fender?

Re: Trials Motorcycle - 1st Build. Qs-motor +Votol

If you use 3 x 6s2p (28Ah) in series, then each 6s2p (28Ah) pack is effectively one battery. This is what I was missing and did not understand - thank you for clearing this up. So YES, I will just leave the two packs together as a parallel for ever. I did not understand that becomes 1 battery. As s...

If you folks could not get the Nucular Controller, what would have gone with?

I'm on the wait list for Nucular, but need to get something to pair up to my QS3kw m...

Re: Trials Motorcycle - 1st Build. Qs-motor +Votol

If you want to get fancy you can create a manifold to plug in the main leads and balance leads (and keep them organised), which will also be wired to the low voltage alarm, and then put this into a nice box or something. I most certainly do want to get fancy with my set up. I think the 3 battery 14...

Re: Trials Motorcycle - 1st Build. Qs-motor +Votol

Want you to make sure and get this right because the consequences are pretty bad if you are wrong. If you go parallel then series than each parallel group is like one giant pack. So you can treat group: 1-6 A and B as one 6s pack with 2x the capacity 7-12 A and B are also one 6s pack with 2x the ca...

Re: Trials Motorcycle - 1st Build. Qs-motor +Votol

I read Parallel first, then run in series. Easier to charge, break the series then charge each parallel group. Maybe this is the right way to wire up my 6 batts? Just 3 in parallel shown below; I'd have to replicate it on the other side of the series connector. http://www.wedesigngood.com/images/thu...

One device you might want to consider is a lanyard kill switch for your wrist to the bars. Was on my list from the moment I started the project. But thank you for reminding me to actually purchase it. Grabbed this little guy this evening. https://cdn11.bigcommerce.com/s-8qheu7ve/images/stencil/1280...

Working on my design for battery box while I wait. I figure I can run 6 batteries now, so will go with 18s2p. I bought a bunch of Series and Parallel connector, wires and various connectors. Here is my mock up on my batteries. 6 Batteries would be on the bottom in Parallel, then put in Series. Is th...

Re: Trials Motorcycle - 1st Build. Qs-motor +Votol

The battery in your picture appears to be a 6s 4.5ah pack. more specifically, a 6s 1p 4.5ah pack. These LiPo packs are normally all 1P, so they don't put 1P on the packaging. To take Dan's example further, using two 6S 4500mAh packs in a 2P configuration, you can get an 18S setup like the picture b...

Re: Trials Motorcycle - 1st Build. Qs-motor +Votol

If you can live with the weight and volume it would be in your best interest to just run all of those packs at the same time. No sense in letting half of them sit on the shelf. They'll be much happier cranking out high amps together. If they fit I will surely add them. Im super space restricted.

Tattu batteries are good stuff. Had my E-trail running 3 years on 3 x 6s 16.000 mah and where still fine. They are not cheap but in the end "you only get what you paid for" After seeing what you have been building. That's plenty enough reason for me to buy Tattu. I just bought me some Tattu. Howeve...
