the 1st small belt will be replaced by a wider one that should be adequate.
nah knoxie you missed the point. i've got a couple of original EV Warrior/Bosch 450W motors. since the controller is gone i have plenty of realestate inside the case. i plan on removing the original motor and replacing it with the pair of EV Warrior motors. except now they won't have that pesky friction drive.knoxie wrote:Hi Rick
Nice sharp photos and good explanation, it looks a little complicated in there doesnt it! those pesky torque sensors! spoiling all the fun. Are you thinking of driving that motor with a beefed up controller though? it looks way to small IMHO its hard to get a good idea of scale but id worry about more than 600W going through that little fella! there is no doubt the belts and pulleys should cope though.
Interesting little motor though, wonder when we are going to see the holy grail and someone make an internally multi speed geared brushless hub motor then!

the motor though is a pretty conventional brushed DC motor. if you ditch the torque sensor and controller you can add a conventional throttle and brushed motor controler. this is what i did with one of these. it is presently on a bike using 36V and a 20A controller. since i have not heard any complaints from the owner i guess it is working okay.
