Is it speed restricted or watt restricted?SlowCo wrote:No.
You need to measure the unloaded and loaded speed to see if the controller is restricted. Like I described in my first reaction on page 1.
Sounds like it is speed limited. Does it have a speedomoter?Elbobbah wrote:Haven't found speedometer yet, but one thing i noticed, when going downhill and reaching a certain speed, the engine stops and restarts when speed lowers.
Could this give you any clue?
2 engines that would be great! 2X2 drivefechter wrote: ↑Nov 26 2017 12:18pmThe controller says Dual Mode. Is there something like a high/low speed switch?
If you lift the rear wheel and just spin it by hand both directions, you can tell if it's geared or direct drive. Geared motors will spin easily in the forward direction but there will be resistance to spinning backward. Direct drive motors will spin fairly easily in both directions but you will feel some cogging from the magnets.
If you could get a spare motor from them, you could put one on the front and make it a dual motor.
There is no turbo button and no marks on the wheel/engineSlowCo wrote: ↑Nov 27 2017 8:26amThe dual mode is related to the torque and not the speed. On my scooter there is a "turbo" button which allows for more amps and thus faster acceleration. Is there a button at your handlebar that does the same?
If you want to keep the 36v battery you'll need a different/higher rpm motor at that voltage. Are there any numbers on the motor casing or side plates? That way you can find out what brand motor it is and maybe just swap out the geared hub motor core for a higher rpm version.
