My name is Jon, and here's a bit of background story about the build, and myself.
I'm currently living in Guangzhou, China, where the build will be taking place, and as many know that the censorship here is crazy so "googling" is out of the equation. (VPN works, sometimes, maybe...)
You guys can imagine how agonizing it is to do research without GOOGLE AND YOUTUBE, search engine here is shit, and DIY-EV community is equal to NONE. My only experience with EV/E-bikes is that I've built an E-go kart while back in the states, which is pretty much NEWBIE level comparing to most people here.
So! I will be throwing out lots of amateur questions, PLEASE do help me out!! Thanks in advance!!
Enough with the chipchats and moving on to the build.
ONE MORE THING,
it would be GREATLY APPRECIATED IF vendors can ship parts/items internationally... EVpower and most don't... cough cough cough... cough, yeah. Or if you guys can help me out with shipping..
I'm looking to build an AWESOME ONE OF KIND Electric Ducati.
Frame: 2009 Ducati 1098/898
MOTOR: ME1507 (This is actually made in china, I know a guy from factory that makes exporting motors. )
Controller: Sevcon Gen4 Size 6
Battery Pack: LG ICR18650 HG2 (Hopefully these are authentic, cells do hold 3000mAH)
Nominal Voltage: 96.2v
BMS: Not decided, probably only gonna use it for Charging, Discharging will be straight out of the terminals.
GEARING: this is a major problem, I'VE NO IDEA!! and motor sprocket is so difficult to find in china...
I was thinking to make a gear reduction box, but idk how to CAD so...
Should be an interesting build.. and hopefully won't be a dead build thread.
please note that I'm carefree with my language, it maybe explicit.
