Alex DM24 in the front, and the stock Yescomusa rim in the rear. Changing to a Crystalyte Motor, stock wheel.

Don't go riding that thing without your torque arm! I'll have some Nordlocks ready when you come over for your other motor. :mrgreen:

New rear tire, Schwalbe Big Apple 26x2.35.

I am considering switching the front for a Schwalbe Marathon Plus 26x2.0 to improve the steering response.

Nice videos! I love night time videos. Where are you getting work done on your motor? I'm assuming same person did the venting also?

Great videos, you're posts have really helped me out. What tube did u use for your marathon plus on the stock yescom rim? I tried mounting my cyclops an it wouldn't fit due to the high rim sidewalls.

@evolutiongts. Do you still have the batt and charger from Cali-bike? If so I wouldn't mind purchasing it. I'm near you. Also what was your top speed using the Yescom kit and the 48v15ah from Cali-bike? He's all out of batts right which is why I'm asking

I'm still using the Cali-bike battery on my girlfriend's bike. Since its a 48v battery it tops out around 32mph fully charged to about 28-30mph.

Yes I am, theres also a replacement battery http://www.amazon.com/Replacement-6600m ... pack+light

With the higher capacity I can run my light for days without charging.

http://www.amazon.com/Replacement-6600m ... pack+light

First run on my new motor Crystalyte HS3540 almost cracked 40mph on 15S. Much more torque, and overall power compared to my old yescomusa motor. What a beast, I'm excited to try 20s tomorrow. The acceleration is unreal, like a motorcycle.
