Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

It'd be pretty slick if a co2 pump would be all you needed to carry for the time the seal popped. That'd make the tubeless setup a no brainer.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

OK just being that the tire will stay on the rim. At that psi I've not had any issues. As for spinning and not breaking a seal, I'm skeptical, but maybe. If you really need to run such low pressure, "Tubliss" is probably better for you - supposedly you can run all the way down to 0, thoug...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Can't hurt to try it on a SurRon. That's thing. I shared that it has been 2,300 trouble-free tubeless miles for me. :roll: If I was like "can I run tubeless for the next 2,300 miles", then it might make sense to say "it might be OK" or it "can't hurt to try". :lol: No ...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Any idea how to seal the rim lock?? I run rim locks on all my wheels and I'd love to go tubeless but don't know how I'd seal that. Thoughts?? My understanding (and of course I could be wrong) was that rim locks are primarily to prevent valve stems from tearing. That is not possibly an issue with tu...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Sup y'all! So after over 2,300 tubeless miles it was time to replace my trusty Bridgeport M403 with the newer M203. The first tubeless conversions I had to use a strap around the tire to get enough of a seal for the tire to inflate. It really was the most pain-in-the-ass task in the whole procedure...

Isn't there a raising link available for the back end? That would sharpen up the steering.

Yep. At least two vendors on eBay sell them. Available in +3/4" and +1 1/2".

Re: SURRON LB: RESEARCH & DEVELOPEMENT

I've got my bike set up how I like it as far as suspension and cockpit. Really happy with it. Working on wheel upgrade next. Hub and hoops are here. Just need to measure up and order spokes. I have a blast riding it. Totally happy with the top speed on a 54t sprocket as I ride mostly technical singe...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Got it. I presume that just makes the shunt read low on current so the BMS doesn't freak out??? Will the BMS now not read capacity correctly? Seems the 'gauge' would read low? If that's the case, are you just using voltage to estimate battery SOC??

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Hi all, I'm just starting to plow through the 200+ pages of this thread and will no doubt learn a metric $hit ton of great stuff! In the meantime, can anyone shed any light on this post from way back? I'd love to increase battery output but still retain the BMS functions. This post seems to refer to...

Re: Charging toys from solar??

Thanks for the reply. REALLY trying to avoid a genset. I don't carry one as I'm full solar at this point. My truck is a diesel so I don't carry any petrol. Trying to avoid yet another fuel system with associated storage and maintenance issues. For me, the whole point is to use less petroleum. Given ...

Charging toys from solar??

Hi all, I'm SURE this has been discussed but I'm not finding what I need. I'm hoping someone can point me to some good threads or resources!! Here's what I want to do: I spend a lot of time off grid, usually in Baja. My camper currently has 200w of solar on it and that is plenty to run lights, heate...

Connection to J1772-2009 Level 1 chargers

Hi, New to this forum. I build custom golf carts for street legal use here in California. I want to be able to plug into the common J1772-2009 Level 1 charging stations to charge when away from home. I'm looking for information on how to build the vehicle side so that I can plug in and charge. It is...
