    Gas Gas G Cross Country 1.0 smokin deal...get my kids into ebiking

    Where does it say the max weight is 150lbs on that bike? My kids are 13 and 15. We’ve always instilled riding with helmets is “cool”. They have good Giro helmets and actually want to wear them. I’d rather them on this (gasgas) than a Jetson bolt from Costco for example. At least they will...

    Gas Gas G Cross Country 1.0 smokin deal...get my kids into ebiking

    Anyone? Is this bike a POS? Any good deal usually is usually for a reason...IE the bike is junk.

    Gas Gas G Cross Country 1.0 smokin deal...get my kids into ebiking

    2023 Gas Gas G Cross Country 1.0 for $1250 CAD or about $900 USD. Brand new...dealer has about 15 of them left in medium and small frame size. I want to get the kids into ebiking...and this might be a good way to start. I'm assuming this is far better than a pre-built Amazon or Chinese...

    Old Honda...small voltage reading when ignition switch is OFF?

    So I got my signal lights working on the old honda thanks to the kind advice of forum members here! (other thread on this forum). This is a great place to get electrical advice. Now I've got another issue on the old bike. I installed a regulator/rectifier 6v (brand new) over the weekend. The...

    Help with old motorbike Honda signal light dash indicator

    So I went ahead and did this to my indicator bulb(image below)...works perfectly. I now have a full LED setup plus I spread the bulbs apart as far as I could so that you can tell if the left or right indicator is on. Funny how many hours I wasted trying to figure out that dang single bulb...

    Help with old motorbike Honda signal light dash indicator

    OK! I had a breakthrough! I got it to work without changing any wiring One point I forgot to mention (I thought it was irrelevant) is that I was running LED signal lights (along with a LED flasher relay). With this, my dash indicator bulbs are also LED's. So first off, just for fun (I was...

    Help with old motorbike Honda signal light dash indicator

    Thanks guys. I get what you're saying...I think. But doesn't that mean what I have wired should be working then? If I do have something wrong (drawin in color on the b&w wiring diagram above) could someone draw in what I SHOULD be doing? The only thing I did different from the wiring diagram...

    Help with old motorbike Honda signal light dash indicator

    Hi Fill. It sounds like you've got it figured out. I just can't figure out what you're figuring lol. Can you help me explain? I took a black and white version of the wiring diagram and drew in what I did. I only drew in the signal light wires as the wires running to the switch is stock and...

    Hi guys. I've attached a more clear (but black and white) wiring diagram. Hopefully this helps shed some light (pun intended) on the situation. Thanks!

    Help with old motorbike Honda signal light dash indicator

    So I'm no further ahead. I monkeyed around it for a while tonight...no luck. My other dash lights work just fine, like the high beam light and instrument cluster backlight. But they are super straight forward. They (the high beam and instrument backlight) both have a power and ground wire...

    Help with old motorbike Honda signal light dash indicator

    Interesting! Very interesting. Makes sense what you say but I'm curious how the lamp holder would be grounded because it's a rubberized socket holding a wedge bulb. And I'm pretty sure it's inserted into a plastic (non grounded) bulb holder. I'll take a better look tonight and at least I...

    Help with old motorbike Honda signal light dash indicator

    Thinking about this now it seems odd because wouldn't there have needed to be a diode in place for this warning indicator lamp to work originally? Because both the wires in the diagram going to the indicator are effectively power. But in the same...how is this working without a...

    Help with old motorbike Honda signal light dash indicator

    I bought a Honda 1983 XL80 off a guy in the summer but it was missing all the street legal lights. I bought a set of 6v signal lights off ebay and hooked them up. I have the signal lights working now! So that parts solved. Only the dash indicator signal light indicators won't light up with...

    Riding an mid-drive ebike without battery...bafang BBS02 vs new stuff...

    Perhaps it's my Nuvinci then? I can drive my brothers identical GT Bravdo without motor/battery and it's like day and night. When I'm pedaling mine without the power on, it's pulling a sack of potatoes behind my bike compared to. I'd be curious to try a high-end bike with a bosch mid-drive...

    Riding an mid-drive ebike without battery...bafang BBS02 vs new stuff...

    So my ebike is my summer mode of transportation to and fro. I love it. 1997 GT Bravado Cromo with BBS02. Interestingly when my brother comes along for a ride, he has the identical bike (1997 GT Bravado Cromo) but his is sans battery...and to make things fair, I shut off my electricity. But...

    Brushed Controller...how to make throttle input less sensetive

    How much would it pull down my max power? If the throttle is 0-5V, does the resistor then only allow 4.8V kind of thing? Any amazon or ebay link you could provide for something I could use?

    Electronic brake with 5v throttle

    Thanks guys. Regarding this...would this be possible with my current controller and how would I set that up? I'm not concerned about the regen actually putting power back in...I'm just looking to have some motor braking. Let me know :)

    Electronic brake with 5v throttle

    Thanks for the reply. I'm working with this controller (image below). It's very basic with only a 5v throttle input, and then the in/out power wires. It is very robust though! If you can think of any creative way of somehow working 2 throttles, one for braking and one for accelerating, using...

    Electronic brake with 5v throttle

    More of a 'theoretically' speaking kind of situation... I'm working on a brushed ebike project and I'm trying to rig an electronic brake by using a secondary 5v throttle. Basically, I have a 5V throttle on one side for accelerating and I would like to use a 5v throttle on the other side that...

    Brushed Controller...how to make throttle input less sensetive

    I've got a brushed controller on an older ebike that I'm working on. It works great except the throttle is VERY sensitive and its nearly impossible to drive it without it jerking around like a jerk ;-) Is there some kind of resistor or something I can put inline to the motors (or even to the...

    Understanding a 1200w Chinese buggy

    Hi guys. Thanks for the replies. Yes, this is not for me. It's for my kids. The machine specs 'minimum 13 years age' on it, so its designed to be more than a power wheels jeep. Though honestly, I have a power wheels 12v running at 18v and its about the same speed lol. That's why I was...

    Understanding a 1200w Chinese buggy

    So I located the speed controller. Photos attached. It says -DC Brushless Controller -Voltage DC48V -Current 33A -Off Voltage 41V -Throttle Voltage 1.1-4.2V Reverse So for LVC, I'm not certain its compatible with Lithium...but the Lithium I'm looking to get would be an ebike battery and...

    Understanding a 1200w Chinese buggy

    Ok, so it’s not a ebike technically, but it appears to have an ebike style rear motor. The motor is stamped 1200w-48v I’m trying to understand the machine as it seems straight forward, but I’ve got some questions I don’t understand. First question is the voltage. The motor is stamped 48v...
