Nucular controller installation done. :D
These are some pics of what I think interesting.
The nucular controller allows for a clean installation and having more space I could mount the bracker in a better way.
Using this stuff I attached the bracker to the frame


New skid plate installed.

Display relocation. I don't like the mounting position above the handlebar stem, so I made this bracket to have the display a little further on


This is a tight fit of the ANT BMS on top of the battery a few mm more and could not fit.
I hope that when Nucular has its own BMS it is no more than 15mm thick.
That came out really good, I like how you mounted the breaker fuse switch. That is clean. Also, the skid plate is perfect, you going to offer that up for sale?

Decided to change the color of the B52 logo to white, had to pull the side covers off and they are 2 piece with silicon holding them together.pulled them apart, cleaned them, flipped them to the silver side and put a fresh cover of carbon fiber and added some white contact and stuck them all back together again..
i like the results, now the red pedals are removed and the logo is in white, looks much better, even have the old red bars which will look a whole lot better now that most of the red is removed, ill keep them for future change out.

Even decided to flip the banjo bolt location from the inside of the caliper to the outside,
Thats how bored i was during this lockdown :roll:

The white logos came out great on the covers. :bigthumb:

Cheers Rix

Brakes have arrived today guys, ill fit them this weekend and let you know how they go.
Went with-
Magura 220mm rotors with adaptor for the front..
Magura 203mm rotors for the rear
and Magura sport brake pads.

i went with the 203 for the rear because the rears already have an adapter and you cannot stack adapters one on top of the other.
its easier to just stay with the 203 rather than trying every adapter Magura make to see which one will fit.

On a different note,
im thinking of fitting a motorcycle horn to the Bomber, the bell is just not cutting it.
ill have to see if it is possible but im thinking to buy another re-gen button and mount it to the top bracket mount-(see pic)
and mount the horn on the top control box bolt.

I don't know it the hole spacing would fit but check out these guys. I have a few of their switches on my dirbikes. They are fantastic..

I have these Same 220mm rotors in a box in my garage. I’m waiting to install them but I feel like I want to put some more wear and tear on the stock ones first. The looks are definitely killer. Hopefully the performance matches the looks.

Brake Disc rotor Upgrade

Hi Everyone
im looking to upgrade the stock, Storm 203mm disc rotors front and rear,
i find they struggle with the weight of the Bomber let alone the extra 92kg of the rider,
they were not designed for such forces :flame:
they are glazing and warping under load.

im looking into maybe getting this option, its a 220mm 2 piece disc rotor Magura make especially for E bikes in mind,
IMG-0412.jpg

there is also a Magura adaptor from 203mm to 220mm
IMG-0413.jpg

Being 2 piece and 220mm, its got to be a lot better than the 203mm rotor with less flex and better heat dissipation,
plus the rotors look sexy too :D !

There are also Magura Sport pads which are made for Ebikes

Has anyone used these or know someone who has or perhaps might know a better solution?
would be interesting to get some feed back, If i buy them ill fit them on my next tyre change and let you guys know what i think.
Have a great day everyone :thumb:

Finally installed the 2nd prototype for my headlight plate for the fisher Fabhouse light. A much more slim design, and now the headlight is powered off the main bike battery. There’s a few imperfections on this print but that’s ok for now.

I forgot to take better pics of it when I was out riding because I was enjoying myself too much. More to come soon!

I'll be surprised if you notice a huge difference in braking power since the MT5s would already lock up the front brake, but there should be a big improvement in heat management. I doubt you'll be overheating those brakes now.

Cozen sweet man!! that's pretty cool! shadowy flight into the dangerous world of a man who does not exist!!! Night rider!!!!

New brakes are always fun to see the difference if there is any... I have gone back and forth between pads on my bike Shimano oem vs aftermarket... The Truckerco Sintered Metallic Disc Brake Pads are not as good as the Shimano they don't last as long and don't quite have the same feel but... they are $13.00 vs $44.00 and the difference between them is not that much. I would say they are about 80 percent the pad that the shimanos are. I use them in the rear and they are fine. Only on long, like 1/2-1mile long downhills do I notice the difference..

The skid plate is built around the controller I have now, before I had made one for Adaptto. Who could want it the same?
In the end it is a 2mm lexan sheet shaped, perforated and cold bent.

spot on Theodore, the braking difference between the 2 is minimal but they are a lot quieter and the s pads have got great bite
there is a difference but nothing crazy.
im very happy with the brakes now.

i have also noticed that my front rim is the same as the rear in terms of thickness, other Stealth's ive seen have a thinner, lighter front rim??
this is my front rim

Lmfao. I almost launched my bike onto the roof of my work building a couple weeks ago. Forgot to switch off the controller before manuvering it into position by the bike rack. Grabbed a handful of throttle while standing next to it and looked a fool to my coworkers as it immediately went from horizontal to vertical.

Both of my stock skinny ass rims were the same size on my 2013, only the spoke holes were different sizes. The rims are strong enough though, they just don't fit the proportions of the rest of the bike. Not that I don't think Stealth is great though, they are, but after all these years it's time for a little styling update. And BTW I'm available for a work from home position. As soon as they hire me, my first order of business will be to make an all street model which will instantly outsell the entire lineup many times over. Well at least 3 or 4 times over.

I know most of you own bombers, but for us little guys, has anyone gone to a 72v Battery on their F37? Stealth says the stock controller and motor can handle it. Can anyone share their experience or details on the process? Thanks!!

It's high 80's that fateful early morning.... The motor just hit around 120 degrees and im 10 miles from my starting point when all of a sudden I hear the dreaded noise... pssshhhhhhhhhhhh.. I hop off the bike and check the rear tire.. yup flat... soo what do ya do... cool down for a minute next to a tree let the motor cool to about 100 and find the nearest fire road and ride it back..... As long as I didnt hit any sharp rocks and traveled around 15-20 mph the tire felt low but rideable.. if it was a bicycle tire on the rear I would be typing this from the trail and there would be A LOOTTTTTT of cussing...... BTW another old school offroad trick. Bring a few big ass zip ties and wrap them around the rim and the tire in a few places and the tire wont fall off the rim. another nother note.. use rubber tubes not the synthetic. they form better to the tire which allow lower pressures and last longer. How do I know this??? hmmmm......

part 2
I set up the bomber now so that I can swap a tube without unplugging the hall/ temp wires I could have not unplugged the phase as well but old habits....everytime I do unplug them I put on a dab of dielectric grease.

This is what I use. The biggest problem is most people don't know how much to put in their tire. It comes in a gallon jug so obviously you put a gallon in each tire.
