Need a replacement conversion kit

Post by phytema » Nov 16 2019 9:24pm

My controller is probably at the end of its life and I might have to replace the rear wheel hub motor too. Could you recommend another conversion kit? (1500w hub motor, 60v sinewave controller (model KT60SVPRK-SLS02G), see attached pictures).

Thanks

I have the 29" voilamart 1500w kit. It was $200 on ebay without the LED display, but I cant see any 29" kits for sale at the moment.

This is a 26" kit though for $193.

The controller maybe, but you can buy a replacement for $30-40. The motor is generic and won't get overworked with the ebay controller. Still more than half the cost of leafbike.

Lots of ebay motors have lasted a very long time, its the controllers that dont last. I just buy sensorless from Greentime and call it a day, stock up on a few throttles, throw in a spare controller and call it a day.

I don't see a clear reason why you need a new kit. In the one post you mention broken spokes. So get the wheel rebuilt. Make sure that they rebuild using a smaller gauge, high quality butted spoke. Go to someone who is known for doing good wheel re-builds, or do it yourself.

If there is other information that you've left out that argues for a new kit, then please include it.

As for ebay kits, I'm a few hundred miles from completing 10,000 miles on my kit. Everything appears to be working fine after a little more than two years - except that I too had the spoke breakage problem and had the wheel rebuilt.

Sure they do. Their major weakness is that they use 12 gauge spokes that will probably start breaking after a few thousand miles. But Leafbike's description says that they also use 12 gauge spokes. So those are likely to start breaking at a similar point as well.
