When i gain some speed and pull the "front brake Only" the bike pulls to the left
This is a sign that your axle clamps aren't evenly tightened or not tightened enough, provided your triple clamps are tightened properly and evenly. Make sure both axle bolts on each leg are tightened evenly.
regen button produces less braking power, less than half, compared to the older model.
Thats a program setting issue, and I am betting that Stealth changed the regen values, as the older models shunted so hard during regen, the rear wheel would actually break traction and skid on loose terrain.

Thread lock wont be necessary, just keep an eye on it and check it from time to time. I have found that when tightening steel screws into aluminum, they tend to take a set after a ride or so.

For those with a Fighter who want to know how their 2 speed gear works, have a watch of this. It popped up in my youtube feed today:

It's not exactly the same as the 1:1.65 unit used in the Fighter, but it's basically the same with the planet gears being located on the outside of the BB instead of inside a hub.

Cheers

Anyone got a clue.. ?

Fully charged battery (B52) - 150 cycles only (new battery)

Went to start out for a ride today.. to find it started and as soon as I started to ride pull the accelarator it kills the power...
the digital display drops to low point and then bike is non respondant....wait a 5 seconds can do the same thing...

Appart from a "pull sides off" and disconnect the battery, for a reset......anyone got an idea..

I have over 40,000kms of use of this bike...and never seen this...todate...

Hi guys,

After a bit of advice , looking to get a bomber control and the bomber Dc1 computer on to my fighter, where if possible can I get a battery with the same power as the bomber that would fit in the fighter?
Has anyone else tried this?

Thanks in advance.

The first time I washed my bike, it ran the same as yours. I thought I had ruined it. It took 2 days to dry out, and after that it was fine again. I always figured that hall plug was the culprit. From then on I was always careful not to get it wet.

Last summer my son, and my best friend rode our bikes downtown about 20 miles away. My son was riding his B52, and Bruce, and I were on our lowly Storms. We stayed out late, and had a lot of fun. Finally, drunk, stoned, and full of pizza, we headed home long after midnight. About 5 miles into the return it started pouring rain. At least it was warm, so we soldiered on. 10 miles later guess who's expensive ass bike stopped running. I'll give you a clue, it wasn't the cheap ass bikes that come from deepest darkest china with all waterproof connectors.

My son was really pissed having to pedal the last 5 miles in the rain, while, me and Bruce kept on truckin. After sitting in my garage overnight, his bike ran fine the next day.

Yep, see what the legend have to say about it:
http://www.ebikes.ca/learn/connectors.h ... 045-series
"At one point a decade ago Crystalyte switched from using the JST-SM connector for their hall signals to a metalic round 5-pin plug that was erroneously referred to as a "mini XLR". There actually is such thing as a mini XLR plug, but this particular connector seems to be a knockoff of a Japanese made Tajima connector. At first glance it seemed to be a high quality contact, but in practice had no practical advantage over JST connectors, tended to corrode with exposure, and was a pain to solder. We stopped dealing with these plugs a long time ago, but many other Crystalyte vendors continue to use them."

These lowly German connectors come on the cheap Chinese bikes.

it has the power to handle any kind of terrain.
Except it has zoom forks, so you'd best not take it off more than a tapered gutter :lol:
