Welcome to the sphere. Enjoy the ride. Where in the world are you located? I think Fechter should post up a guinea pig pic in honor of your blown controller. You are one of the few to combine gas and electric on the same bike. You are helping to find the stuff to look out for. The controller convert...
Yes well a permanent magnet motor will act as a generator when spun up. So if the gas motor is driving the bike at 30 mph and the front hub motor is a direct drive motor then that front motor is generating juice. A guess from here is that the hub motor generated a high enough voltage to damage the f...
Everything about that controller is in this thread http://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=71128&sid=799140c0c8c8f092662f8086d6f8d1ab The short answer is you do not need to do anything with the 3 speed connector.

Welcome to the Sphere!
Electrons will soon make you one of us.
The pin and socket type connection has many good uses in low current applications.
They just are not up to the higher current required to power up the motor.
My bikes have anderson power poles in use for the high current connections.
This might be a good app for some 10 amp hour Headway cells.
I use a 5 amp hour 18s li co pack and at most use 2.5 amp hours mowing the yard.
The yard is 60 foot by 100 foot. About half of the yard is grass or weeds that get mowed.
