Been working hard on the Fighter to get it finished. Very happy with the way it came up. The blue handle bars I am sure wont to be to everyone's taste but I quite like them an kind of adds a personal touch without messing up the Fighter look.
First a shot of the bike completed but without the the batteries installed. I divided the battery cavity into 2 equal compartments and are using the upper compartment as the primary battery area. This arrangement puts the balance point just about in the centre of the bike. The bottom compartment has a a parallel battery connector for quick connection of a second equal sized pack for those longer rides.
Total weight with the upper battery only came up at 27kg ready to ride. Feels amazing on the road and changes direction so easily. Really quite easy to pick up also.
I have only had a couple of shake down rides so far but are more then pleased with the results. Top speed is 63kph on flat road and is setup for just over 2000W. Acceleration is more then acceptable and I think wouldn't be far off off a stock Fighter in this department. I am really impressed with the Magura MT-2 brakes also. Very light feel combined with excellent modulation and great stopping power. I am running a 38 tooth chain ring and and using the 11 tooth on the cluster. This makes for a comfortable cadence at 50 kph in the high ratio on the Schlumpf and around 25kph on the low ratio.
And finally a few shots of the completed bike with the happy owner
