Great video, good quality ride as well, felt like I was on the bike! ha ha, I tell you that accelerates very well xyster!
Hey Knoxie...And that was with it at 72v. I've since added another 8 volts of lithium and fixed the issue that was sapping 2 amps of current.
I think it would be a very close match with the Puma and my Trek in a drag race (till we got to some hills)
Well we can sure find out. I'd really love to know exactly what to expect with the Puma before I consider buying one. At 1/3rd the weight, that's the cat for my next, off-road bike. But I'll be durn surprised if the Puma beats the x5 at any time other than right off the line. With all that mass, the x5 stays cucumber-cool even at 3000 watts up hills.
ha ha but no thats very impressive, its nice to see your bike clean again
That vid was from 3 months ago. It's since accrued great gobs more dirt.
Ive a dream...silver dream machine....look out the music as well would go nice on your next video
I've purposely avoided music because I wanted to offer something a little different: the most "like you're really there" video possible. That's also why I make sure to have the gauges in view as much as possible.
Thanks again, do you find your controller to be reliable at 72V? I am finding them a little less than reliable at 72V
No problems at all. Max voltage is now 84 volts, and the controller's never suffered a thermal shut-off or any other hint of a problem. What problems are you seeing creep in at 72V? I was considering pushing it to 90+ volts, but I don't think I will without having the circuitry refitted with ~150V components.
Cheers again...and I want more videos get filming!! I want to see more of your lovely country!!
I'll do another film, trying to include some different scenery, when the skies brighten and it stops raining -- which may not be until April or May
