But it is not that hard to take almost any hall throttle and make it waterproof by potting the hall sensor wires. I have some I tested underwater.macribs wrote: ↑Aug 17 2018 11:02pmConsider doing any needed mods to the thumb throttle or cable rather then the pot box, that way you don't end up with getting stuck'd in the pouring rain because the halls short out due to rain. Regular e-bike throttles are working well in nice weather, when rain is pouring it is a different story. Pot box for the win.
Didn't even think about that. But there is one more important aspect of using standard cable operated throttle, the ease of throttle modulation. Give it a little or give it a lot of throttle. A good cable operated throttle gives you more of the familiar motorcycle feel when cracking the throttle.
