After last night getting things all put back together, I made some controller setting changes to account for an 82 volt pack and went for the maiden ride tonight. I started at 123 phase amps and that worked pretty good, but the motor felt a little tepid so I bumped it up to 166 phase amps and then acceleration felt pretty decent. I'm going to bump that to 180 amps for the next ride.
I charged last night to 76 volts since it had never been charged before. Tonight I went for probably 30-40 minutes of riding and that dropped me down to 73 volts when I returned home. This was the maiden voyage and for the most part, I'm pretty happy. I don't know what happened, but the front wheel fender has deformed and now when the front shocks compress, the fender drags on the tire. I took it off and went back out again. The roads are dry, so who cares for now. I tooled around town doing mostly 30-45mph. After a while I was getting used to how the moped handles and wanted to see what it had to offer. I was riding on roads that generally see cops pretty often and so I headed for a road that I have never seen a cop on. I then cranked the throttle to WOT and held it there. Acceleration was as good as or better than the cars I was passing who were all doing 40-50mph and I topped out on level ground at 55mph at 73 volts while sitting straight up. In a tuck, I bet I'd pick up another mile or 2. I'm charging right now to 100%. I'm really curious to see what 82 volts gets me. 60+ I bet!
Other than the stupid fender, everything worked perfectly. I want to adjust my XHP70.2 headlights up a little. They point too close in front of the moped and not down the road enough. I want to rewire the low beams so they are on in high beams too. Other than finishing up the deck, it's perfect. The motor and drive line is sooo quiet! I need mirrors for it and I think I have a set...somewhere...maybe.
This is the reading on my GPS speedo. I held 55.3mph for just over 2/3 mile. Yeah 26.6 miles between 2 runs tonight...not bad and just 3 volts drop in the pack.
This is the motor temp at 166 phase amps and my battery voltage after a few minutes of recovery. Under load at 55mph I was looking at 73 volts.
Where I live the state law says that an unlicensed moped can drive at 40mph max. I've added this stealth 3 speed switch under the front edge of the seat. Low is 25.2mph, medium is 38mph and high is maximum everything...or last I checked...at least 55mph. If a cop pulls me over for exceeding 40, I'll flip it to medium and then tell him there has to be a mistake since my moped doesn't go that fast and tell him to clock me again. Since WOT in medium is 38, he'll walk away scratching his head and I'll go away with a giant smile on my face.
