Took the bike to a Motorsport park in the mountains yesterday. Did some massive hill climbs, the 6T winding perform very well. Just got to watch that up spring when hitting rocks. Rode 26 miles and charged once for about 1 1/2 hours at 8 amps.
Although I believe a mid drive motor to be superior off-road these slow wind hub motors do an awesome job if anyone is considering. Especially the 6T winding, I think even the 5T works in most situation but not extreme hill climbs. stick with the 6T if you’re trying to build something for mainly off-road.
Toward the end of my ride as my battery was dying I turned down the power as much as I could to conserve range and was able to actually get up the Mountain at 80 dc amps and 350 max phase. I could never do that with a 5T winding. Prior to that I had the setting set at, 100dc amp 450phase-max Rated at 250amps, with the mid throttle current at 100a. I did hit the motocross track for a short while and I turned the power up to 150dc amps and 500 phase and 300a on the mid throttle current
definitely had more acceleration than the big 450 two strokes “on the track”. Coming out of the turns/berms I can get up to speed quicker than the Petro bikes. But then slam on the brakes before the big jumps :lol: I hit small jumps but not motocross doubles on this build, its not safe.
I bent my handlebars really bad yesterday dropping the bike off a ledge straight onto the left handlebar grip. Ordered a new one the exact same 60mm risers. I don’t know how the bar did not snap because the bike fell from about chest height of a ledge straight onto the left handlebar grip
I wasn’t riding the bike I was walking it down a super steep descent and I had to drop it so I didn’t lose my footing. Rather break the bike than me lol
And unfortunately someone got airlifted from that motorsport park yesterday, I heard they broke their neck as they fell off the Enduro trail down the side of a mountain. Pretty sad to see knowing that persons life will be forever changed.
Also ordered some better tires for Enduro trails. I have no traction with these Shinkos although I love these tires they’re just not meant for hard Enduro.
