Thanks Rube, much appreciate the names.
Took me a moment to work out who you meant by Sketch[ism] as I tried going through the userlist on my phone without realising I could actually sort by spelling as opposed to joined date. Has he got an electric on the road? Is there a thread I've missed somewhere - I've got a tonne of reading to do to get on top of all this.
Technically... I'm just south of Brisbane, Rochedale South - I'm not at the build stage yet so only really tinkering with the bike in non electric capacity at this stage. Still planning on what exactly to do and looking at maybe modelling something up in 3d to work out dimensions I'm working with for battery etc - be nice to find a z750 model that's adequate for the task this weekend.
I was musing getting something like this: https://wholesaler.alibaba.com/product- ... 93865.html
Wasn't sure about the quality of controller etc included with the hub however - I'm sure there are better ones available but my knowledge in that area is so shallow, you might as well consider the surface frozen.
After I sort out what I'm getting in that department I'll need to sort out getting a battery built - but being a relative novice haven't sorted out what sort or how yet either. Although I have found VRUZEND's DIY assembly kit for 18650 batteries to be a really awesome concept. I assume by Chris, you are referring to jonescg and his LIPO battery builds, they look interesting.
So far all I know is I'm wanting my Z750 to be highway capable and at minimum capable of cruising at 110-120km/hour for a distance of around 60-80km. No sure if that's doable?
I'm assuming the combined weight of myself (90) and the bike (guesstimate 110) will be around 200kg sans battery/motor/electrics.
Clearly I've got a lot of reading to do yet.
