So I'm using a magura throttle on my e bike, and there's about a ten percent dead zone before the motor kicks in. I have the throttle wired up to a cycle analyst, and I've tried adjusting the input voltage to get rid of it. The problem is the magura throttle doesn't seem to output anything till I turn it past ten percent though. It's not a huge deal but it's kind of annoying because my throttle is already touchy and I want to use all the accelerator travel I have to make it less "aggressive". Is there a quick easy fix for this or is this just how these throttles are?
You need to place resistors in series with the ground and 5v lines to make it look like a hall throttle. With a CA, you can tune this so the resistors can be off a little. Ideally you want 1.7k, but those are hard to find. 1.5k or 1k should work.
