Re: Ikea Ebike dead wont turn on

Gold plated terminals on connector are corroded. One of them is green. You need to clean it off and also look at the receptacle where the terminal goes in. Thanks but there is no sign of corrosion also in the terminal I think that's the green Tommy spotted. How about just get one of those cheap use...

Re: Razor EcoSmart Hub Motor Upgrade

Did you use the stock controller with the 48v battery first before changing to the fast scooter controller? I did, actually, and it does work. Gives a small boost in speed, but mostly just switching to Li chemistry gets you way more wh/lbs -- ie, more range. Chuyskywalker do you still have the part...

Re: controller upgrade questions

Thats a pricey option. Might as well get a 1000-1500w kit. And sell the bafang. And the plastic gear inside might go bad very fast going up hill hard.

Re: Accidental double Razor scooter builds

Can you post some detail picture of how the 48v brushless motor is mount. Also any problem with the bigger motor mounted to the thin steel plate. I just pick up one with a burn motor.
Thanks

Re: Razor EcoSmart Hub Motor Upgrade

40+ mph is crazy fast. Is the rear brake only good enough for that kind of speed? I agree that trying a 48v lithium battery pack is a safe and easy upgrade. As for my upgrades, in order: 1. Using a 48v 20.4ah 18650 battery pack (Panasonic 3400mah in 13x6 configuration), I hit 23mph in otherwise sto...

Re: controller upgrade questions

So I currently have a Bafang 48v/500w rear hub motor and the controller for it is 20a max. I am considering upgrading to a KT controller (25A) to get a little more power out of the motor. It seems no one really makes a controller over about 20-22 amps that is a direct swap for the type of controlle...

All, I got my package today. It took a while but he delivered what was described in his ad. BMS in this battery has a common port type. You don't need a separate charge port. The discharge port can be used for charging. This will simplify the layout. Which battery you got. Does your come in a metal...

I have the same issue. The tracking number was given on 9/26 but no update for more than 1 week. Something is not right at this post office (Venice, CA). The first update I got was when the package arrive Los Angeles distribution hub. That too like 4 days for a 20 miles. Maybe because the natural o...

Re: controller upgrade questions

Tires and other things you will think more about later. If you start putting a lot of miles and get flats then you will value tires more. If you lose interest then you will have saved some money. I know it's crazy but I spend more money on my bike tires than the car. The big difference is the cheap...

Will this work on a 48 volt 1500 watt yescom kit Controller Current Limit: 35 A ? Do you have the yescom rear kit on hand. The site did not give any info on the controller. And in the detail description list the motor as 1000w. If you have it can you take a picture? I looks like a lot controller wi...

This is EXACTLY what i was looking for. I was trying to figure out how I was going to fit more of those long packs in my mounting location but this will work perfectly. Sign me up for one!
Can you share a picture of how you mount the long pack?.

Re: controller upgrade questions

I inflated my tires to the max recommend level. And find a longer stretch flat path.
So I guess the battery are all right. I order 2 and plan to run them parallel, that should make thing more stable and hopefully safer.

This is what I got https://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=112931 Well that's a pretty great deal if the packs test out. Do you have a way of monitoring voltage while you are riding? Yes the c18 display show voltage. But it is very small at the corner. Hard to read when the number...

You are right it the 3 pin for the 30amp. Too bad. I agree with you on the thinner tires with smooth thread lower roll resistance. That why I never understand why people want those fat tire bike. I can't justify getting $100 set tires on my 300ish ebike now. But next set I be sure to try those CST. ...

Re: controller upgrade questions

I did put new tires and adjusted the brakes. So no drag for sure. What kind of tires are better choice? I did not check the bearing though. But the front wheel spin fine with no noise.
Chalo bty the eBay 30a controller did have 9 pin plug to the motor. Is that not the same as the bafang?

I am running at 48v. Does you guys have similar speed with this g020.500d motor? The similar G020 Jump bike front motors I've been building lately tend to go 23-24 mph at 48V 22A in a 26"wheel. What kind of bike are you using? What's the wheel diameter? What's the total weight? The 30A control...
