Thank you Noq for the honesty and chuckle worthy pics on your controller mod and motor windings!

WOW! That's a lot of money for a motor. I started converting a Yamaha YJ125 Vino 7 months ago and had to stop because the spending was going out of control. I figured I would need an additional $3000 CDN to finish the project. I didn't have it so I worked overtime and once I got a couple grand, I bought this instead. A 33 year old Honda Magna V30. No one can say if any of the electric vehicles today will be as reliable for so long.

I really hope that new motor works out and I hope you install it on a genuine motorcycle, not a cheap Chinese scooter imported into this country as a bicycle. Good luck and have fun.
I am so sorry that you are experiencing difficulty in your life, but if you send $10 at paypal.me/Ray1964
, you will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Mistercrash, here is where we were able to fit that controller (just barely):

Image

The tech at QS Motors in China told me that I could run the 8kW motor at up to 120V safely. My mouth watered :D But then I realised my Kelly 96501 can't exceed 96V. I'm not amp- or torque-limited, but I am voltage limited.
Was just rereading your thread, I got myself in a situation where I'm going to have to go with the 96V controller over the KLS-H model which maxes out as a 72v model because of my 96v Chevy volt modules. However looking at the space to fit the controller is going to be pretty pushed! :shock:

I could trim off 2s off one Volt modules, but seems a waste. I don't think I can trim 10mm off either side of the length of the controller so might just have to build a cardboard mockup to see how it might fit.

ps.. the way I read the spec sheets, your 96v controller can be overvolted to 120v so you have wiggle room.

Hi noq, and mistercrash, I just got one of those little Chinese e-car testers, and checked all my components on my Motorino XPh. According to these tests, it is my CONTROLLER that failed. I want to share that so others with similar symptoms can learn. (like an odometer that never stops turning at over 90kph). I explained my problem in depth on another Motorino thread here. So, I am looking for a good used controller, preferably a plug n play. I know many members here have upgraded their components/controllers to Kelly, etc., so there should be a few sitting around out there? If I can't find a stock one, any recommendations for upgrades? Tnx...Nick . :)

noq wishes this thread deleted. He has deleted his own content, which partially solves the issue.
Since other members content is in the thread, i'm giving it a lock and sink.
My first major build: 8T MAC motor on a Trek 4500.
The new all-arounder: Leafmotor 1500w on a Turner O2 full suspension.
The wheelie machine: 20" Rear Magic Pie II on a Trek 4300 MTB
