New Razor EcoSmart SUP, upgrade recommendations?

Post by AWDDude » Jun 10 2021 2:17pm

Just purchased a new Razor Ecosmart SUP electric scooter. This is a newish model from razor similar to their older ecosmart metro, but with a hub motor and no seat. Its a pretty awesome ride with giant 16inch wheels and wide deck. I purchased it knowing i would want to modify it for more power/speed and longer range. At 36 volts, the motor produces negligible heat even while going up hill, so I want to over drive it to 60v. From what I can tell a 60v 20ah battery should fit with plenty of room to spare in the battery compartment.

The worst thing about the scooter and the first thing I will be replacing is the brake system. The factory belt/drum brake is horrible, its got plenty of stopping power but its veryyy grabby and will lockup the rear wheel. I have tried adjusting it with little to no success. The rear part of the frame has holes that look like they are specifically designed for disc brake calipers but I will have to fabricate something to mount the disc to the wheel.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a cost effective 60volt brushless controller? I also would like some recommendations for 60volt 20ah batteries.

it all depends from how many Amps you are able to put on your motor. Are you sure it can run @ 60V ?

I think it will be able to handle it but, if it becomes a problem I have some ideas for cooling the motor, it that is not enough then I will look into rewinding or even a new motor.

So far I have upgraded the throttle, the stock twist throttle was a PITA, I went to a thumb throttle, but I'm not sure how much i like it yet. I also put some better MTB style lock on grips on the handle bars. And I was able to upgrade the brake to mechanical disc, but again I don't know how much better it is, I think hydraulic brakes will be much better.

I'm still looking for a good 60v battery, and brushless controller. Please feel free to offer any suggestions for either.
