Some of you may have read a recent thread I made lauding the budget super-bike kit from cyclone. I stand by that post, as I have brutally abused it for 300+ miles to date, but this morning my Motor cut out!
The problem: When throttled, motor makes the usual high pitch noise, heats up as usual, even jitters the sprocket gently but wont turn forward. The controller cuts power to the motor after 2 seconds, as if I am stalling the motor intentionally. Interestingly, if I roll the bike backwards and throttle, the motor still has power enough to stop my backwards motion, but will not turn forward.
Not the Problem: Voltmeter throttle is reading, Battery pack is working (my secondary circuits are still powered), connections were all verified to be solid. Since I feel the motor heating up when throttled, I assume my controller is also working properly. In my mind, this leaves the motor.
Before I open up a motor (which I've never done before), does anyone have any thoughts on the problem?
