Re: Nova Cruz Voloci Re-vamp

Took the street Voloci out for a cruise on a nice day! https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/EQcMEFrTlES_XFImcaKCHKWfhEss-4h1XERDSiWl529Hvy6NRVgTBK1U74dOhL9wi8ycc9xYziDvbUuMZTVZLnSKHoSxaP2iRnwvXMNHaswDOe9IV9P7cgetyiq23gvHkzNOMvG_vh2INs_LhJu7bOJIEYsgNx-yEw6t3JNedC0qSqTB3gMD1Xz5JsQQzAEGT7HqJiPIArbkiDT20iF...

Re: Denzel 72v 4-spd Gearbox Build DB17

I can confirm the motor does not run with Sine wave controllers.... sigh constant bucking and hall errors KLS still collecting dust draws 6.5amps at 10s full throttle which is pretty high id imagine the motors no load current should be less than half of that without the gearbox The first minute of t...

Is it as wide as it looks? That's a very reasonable price for what you're getting. Should make a great little power source for a variety of small EVs.
I wonder if the gearbox could hold up to a d7500?
13.5" width

Re: Denzel 72v 4-spd Gearbox Build DB17

I haven't gotten around to testing the drive but I should at the least get a no load test in real soon. There is some sort of gear shifter indicator wiring loam coming out of the drive and if I was to guess it tell you which gear you are in? But the wiring was squished by the weight of the drive in ...

Thanks for the tip and links! The magnetic drain plug is a good idea I would have overlooked otherwise.

Where can we find info (specs and pricing) regarding the motor and gearbox combo? It could be an interesting option for down here due to a lot of mountainous terrain away from the metropolitan area.

Why not buy a swingarm? They are plentiful and cheap.
Already bought the swingarm and the stock shock, but since im on the tall size i will likely lengthen it with the dropout plates somehow since this is a kids bike setup with a 14” rear wheel and im running 17”

Denzel 72v 4-spd Gearbox Build DB17

This is basically just a really cheap build so I can test out the new Denzel 4 speed gearbox drive. I found many very expensive options for frames with the E22 Honda mount, some street legal/some not. And none of them seemed well suited for my needs so I decided to buy a very cheap taotao DB17 dirt ...

Re: DENZEL electric dirt bike on Indiegogo. Just launched

I was thinking of reusing a sprocket I had on my Apollo dirt bike build for this drive but looking at the Eastgem videos again, they seem to use the tiny stock gas sprockets of the OEM bikes and my sprocket is 60t I think https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/CCBDrpIL_ue9cO-FiEe3mgNIHLL2ZwehqyVgt7JxggvE...

Re: Nova Cruz Voloci Re-vamp

Ya its a shame, they are pretty fun until they fail, but not worth the time it takes to dis assemble the entire bike repeatedly. I could try a epoxy and re-glue the magnets but that's even more time invested to possibly still fail. I wonder if the limiting factor is the RPM or the heat or both combi...

The Paypal resolution date was set for 4/8/19 but I checked it today and it says it may take until 5/1/19 now

Obviously the seller has still not responded to Paypal and they are giving them more time for some reason
