Walmart Genesis mostly finished 13 Kw

Post by 100volts+ » Feb 17, 2014 4:38 pm

This is my mostly finished second build I've been working on for a while. It was slow going because I had to pick up virtually all skills along the way. It's a 13 Kw cromotor with 24 fet controlller and 28s 10Ah lipo. The torque and speed is amazing to me, but it is also illegal. I have a much more tame commuter bike to go to work on. This one is for fun. It's well balanced also.
Edit: Will update photo of bike in a few days as I've made a number of upgrades.

I noticed the swingarm on that bike is pretty thick, is that the default swingarm that came with the bike or did you make a new one

Farfle is an es member. Here is a link to his fabrication thread. He has made about 50 of these, but they are all sold.

That bike must be a rocket with 28s lipo. I have Farfle swingarm too, but never bought the bike to install it.

Looking at your ride home from work video you definitely made the right choice with a torque raptor. I got to admit frankenbikes like mine can be a real pain in the ass...but I learned a lot.

how does cromotor handle the 13kw?

you should swap the discs lool, or better install a 203mm rotor on the front

One of these days I'll get around to it because 203's look cool. However, the regen on my controller is set to 70% and when I pull slightly on either brake lever it's shocking how fast it brings the speed down without the pads touching the rotors.


PS madin88 Thx. Coming from you, it's awesome to hear because I've seen your latest build and it's wicked.

on two wheel vehicles braking power is split to about 70% to the front and 30% to the rear wheel. this means the front brake should be at least twice as powerful as the rear brake to keep braking power balanced.
your bike is awesome fast, and a bigger front disc will make it more safe.

thx for your compliment :) ES is a great board

Wow, what an awesome build. I've always been intrigued by high speed builds, but it just doesn't suit my type of riding.

I didn't want it to be but over time the cost went up as I changed things for more torque and speed.

I'm not sure because I'm still modding. It's Christmas morning and my wife got me downhill dual crown forks and 19" front motocross wheel. I just finished chopping the steerer tube to length and installing the starnut. (Not a pleasant task cause I worry about screwing up the length or getting the starnut in cockeyed, but it's done and good.

BTW i'm 5'8" and I have a lay down seat post but with the dual crown forks it's possible to adjust the fork height to whatever feels comfortable. With a normal seat post and dual crown fork that bike could accommodate a guy up to 6'2 or so. I had a friend 6'5 and 370 lbs ride it but he felt a little cramped.

Tuning 150v controller. I'd show the whole bike but it's ratty looking now with wiring and cabling all over the place. I will say it rides quiet and smooth as silk. Top speed should be around sixty mph but it's too cold and i'm too chicken without more test rides under my belt.
