Re: SURRON LB: RESEARCH & DEVELOPEMENT

I’d like to know more about what you find on the Litespeed batteries,I have tried to waterproof mine as best I can but the top of the battery acts as a funnel to catch water.

Re: Ford etruck F-150 Lighting - Opinions?-

Found some more info:the battery range for the 230-300 batteries are EPA numbers with 1000lb payload.With a unloaded truck the 300 mile range battery goes to 460 miles.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

It seems the latest Surron’s are having more problems than the older batch,I think Surron is getting lazy or something else is in play,last years bikes that my friends bought didn’t have problems,this year that my friends bought have had X controller issues,Rst fork issues and other little things,Lu...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Did the Luna battery have a built in Bms?My Litespeed batteries have a Bluetooth Bms where you can set up parameters like short circuit protection and how long it takes to trip.Just curious.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

I think the lack of a circuit breaker is what smoked the battery plugs even if the short was on the minus mainline.What was Luna’s thinking of not including that?I blew a fet on my Bac8000 from using a EBay Bac8000 terminal block that replaces the lower blue cover,the included screws where to short ...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

That video is kinda spooky, I have a Bac8000 and Litespeed 60v battery that has about 6 months on it.I would think the breaker should blow if shorted,must be internal on his Bac4000 to do what it did.

If only the welds where better where the shock mounts to the frame .The photos from the welds up close on Electricbike where not very good.The Youtube video’s aren’t really showing much of it’s performance.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

I also had some experiences with my '15 Zero FX that made me want to keep the tip sensor connected on my SurRon (I bought from Luna). I immediately disconnected the other SurRon cut-out sensors (brakes, kick). After almost a year, I think the tip sensor still works (been a while since I tested it t...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Best material would be G10 made from 1/8 to 3/16 sheet and fiberglass the corners.G10 is tough stuff but cuts easy enough.I do have a extra Surron case.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Surron Usa has one piece1mm shims for the jack shaft so you could probably get 3 or 4mm more chain spacing.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Two of my friend’s did the tubliss conversion for the back,and they come back at zero psi often.1 converted back and the other is in the process of converting back.Regular old rim lock and tube works the best in my opinion.So much easier changing tires.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

I ride tight single track all the time and I think the steering is plenty quick enough,I am also running the Bac8000 set to 13500w and it’s a blast to ride and climb steep hills.My friend rides his trials bike with us and he has no advantage.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Those that have put the 60v battery on their X160 have said it I increases distance but not speed.Pretty sure it uses the same motor ,so has to be the controller.I have a Xcontroller for 60v from my Surron I’m not using.I installed a Bac8000 and won’t be going back.
