Motor Problem MSUX/Lyen...

I have a problem I am finding extremely difficult to resolve. I had a Lyen 12fet + Crystalyte HT3525, with the correct Phase/Combo the motor would turn unloaded drawing circa 3amps. I had put 1000 miles on it, no problem. A year later, when unloaded, the motor sounds fine. Once on the ground it soun...

Re: improving MXUS 3000 V2

Sorry for late answer. We don't work with Lyen's Infineons and it took some time to find out the correct combination. Halls: Blue-Blue Yellow-Green Green-Yellow Phases: Blue-Blue Yellow-Green Green-Yellow This should work. Can i confirm that everyone using a Lyen controller is using the same config...

Re: upgrade Axle set for MXUS 3000 V2

I have warmed up the side cover in an oven at a low setting previously.

Put the bearing in a sealed bag in the freezer for 30 minutes prior.

The bearing will drop straight into the cover.

Current combination is as per US Lyen to Crystalyte.

Motor

After reading this, 'cogging' is the exact term I would use. Best get the multimeter out.

HT3525 Motor Noise - Electrical?

Have a motor which sounds like the wrong phase connections have been used. On the bench, you can just hear it. (Video below) There is the 'usual' noise almost masking it, but you can just hear 'pings' every so often. The pings sound like electrical noise. When there is a load on the rear wheel, the ...

Re: Vectrix VX1 - New Toy!

The imax doesn't measure internal resistance unfortunately.

I kept cycling the cells, which seemed to do the trick.

Ideally I need to put the whole pack on charge and find the cells which are charging too quickly with a meter.

The cells were not fully charged, just given a few mah to pick them up to 1.2v per cell.

Cheers. There aren't many it would seem in the UK, or anywhere else for that matter.

Re: Vectrix VX1 - New Toy!

All plugged back in and tested out.

I have the Vectrix switched off.

Once I switched the power on at the wall, the following happens.

The fans on the charger are going, but only for 20seconds or so.

Vectrix VX1 - New Toy!

Hi all, first thread for me over here. I am usually on Endless Sphere building bikes, but have taken the step into motorcycles; the Vectrix being the start. I picked this up in Oxford, a couple of hours away from me in the UK. http://i189.photobucket.com/albums/z313/sacko_vit/Vectrix/2015-07-12%2011...
