Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Just got Luna's "bash plate". First impressions: I'm glad they made it and it does look stronger than original, but good lord! That is the worst welding I've ever seen. They really need to hire it out or send one of their employees to welding school. Motomoto, have you seen one? I'd imagine you woul...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

The bikes were designed to have a 26” Mtb front wheel used, all the pre production images showed the bikes with a 26” front wheel, Fox 40 forks, Shimano brakes and higher bars. The final product ended up with 19” MX rims front and rear to cut production costs and use one supplier for both wheels. A...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Anyone have a part number for a throttle tube that will work. I see a lot of dual cable and cam type ones. Not sure if it matters.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Anyone have the luna skid plate yet? Any impressions? I'm going to repost. Hopefully that's not rude. The price on this seems OK. I'm not a fan of the motorguard part but I could cut it off. Just want to know if it will hold up. I destroyed stock one in the first week and have been riding carefully...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

That thing does not look very nicely made. Hopefully it's first prototype. I'm not saying I could do better myself though. We are just being seeing a picture of the skid plate being form fitted, it hasn't been welded and/or anodized yet. It will look much better when completed. That makes sense. As...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

The engine cover on the Sur Ron is quite weak as many have noticed. I have a company in China since 10 years ago, i let my metal factory make a 100% copy of the engine protector. Im thinking of making a steel version and a thicker aluminium version. What thickness do you guys is the best for the al...

It is I'm sure. He has good throttle control and some pretty good respect for it. He's been slowly ramping up. I can hear the wheelspins and motor sound increasing. He's a good mix of cautious and confident. And that makes for a smart and fast rider. Any idea if your son will race MCs down the road...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

I will get my FOC controllers from the factory next week(if they did not forgot to pack them in), will test them out for sure! What Ghost is delayed because they will do a complete redesign of the powertrain and this prolly means the chassis as well. This because they thought it was underpowered. J...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

My 9 year old is riding mine as of today. 20 min practice in eco mode, then had him switch to sport mode. He did just fine. 58T sprocket.

I have to say though, that his first ride was a 12.5 oset at age 2. Still, I was amazed how well he handled it.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Alright guys, I messed up. I just noticed that axle nut was missing. I must have not tightened or assembled right when I changed sprocket. Does anyone know the size and thread pitch? I guess I could take the axle to the hardware store.... I think I might have put the tabbed washers in wrong. I was d...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

You could buy a bac8000 now if you want to tune it yourself. I need brake pads, who’s got em or what’s compatible? Seems one of my rear pads is already hitting the backer. Since I am almost 100% front brake user and my front brake pads are still at 90%, I’m calling shenanigans. The rear caliper is ...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Luke The BMS shunt resistance stock is 0.31mOhm and its now halfed to 0.155mOhm. That let's it pull double power on the stock pack to feed a big controller. I ordered a BAC8000. I will have to change the resistor. A photo would be cool so that I know which one. I can see a CNC mount for the ASI con...

Also, thank you Rix. Good doing business with you. Received my sprocket super fast and waiting on new chain now.
Glad it arrived so quick. Im sure you will like it better.
Got it put together. Whoah!

Exactly what I wanted it to be. I highly recommend this mod.

Re: All-wheel drive electric bicycles

I was thinking more about starting on steep uphill. That's the situation that makes sense to me. No personal experience at all though. It's been really interesting reading and learning here. I know you are one of the bigger content providers. Thanks for that.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

It's an awesome video. Good opportunity with both location and companion. In my mind I just immediately saw him seeing a squirrel or something off to the side. Shades of walking a dog by bike in my childhood probably.

Re: All-wheel drive electric bicycles

AWD could only hurt off road or on road performance VS just having the right sized motor in the rear. It's for the same reason just a good front brake gives a vehicle the same stopping distance as a front and rear brake. RWD of adequate thrust is the key to off road or on-road.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

As for the panging I am feeling on the left side I am sure it is happening when the suspension takes a hit and not a rock. Going to see what I can do to get a little more clearance for the rear tire. OK so the tire is definitely limited to width by the kickstand spring stand as you can see: http://...
