How to use motorbike throttle on ebikes

Post by handbaked » Oct 30 2016 12:38am

Hi

I want to use a motocross twist throttle that pulls a cable much like a bicycle gear cable when turned. I have heard that there is an adapter that allows you to use this kind of throttle on an ebike. Does anyone know of such product?

Cheers

There's a few threads about such a thing, including one in the for sale section; cant' remmeber who is selling them.

But you can make your own using an ebike throttle mounted to a tube to hold it i place relative to the cable housing, inside a box on the ibke; if you have a battery box etc it can go i there.

Don't know when there will be any more of those coming from Gwhy. Seems it has been a while since he had the time to assemble and ship so if in a hurry you might as well make your self or source from different vendor. I've put in my order to ghwy summer of 2015 i think but ghwy had some injury last year, he kind of got a backlog, or everyday life has caught up with him. When he is good and ready I am sure he will ship.

Np for me, I got time to wait as I got a few china throttles as well. So this new throttle will be a nice bonus.
