" No need to sync.

Two controllers, with individual hall sensors. Since they are mechanically linked, one provides more torque they both speed up. Running motors in torque control there is no need to match speeds, speed is fed back to each controller via the hall sensors. "

" Very smart -up-

Any plans to put a bigger battery? I was just thinking some Nissan Leaf modules would fit well and go behind your fairing and tank with lots of capacity and similar voltages.

Very nice build sir.

Power is volts x amps. 90v x 600a = 54kw. This is a peak rating, not continuous. Those controllers look pretty spiffy, but I don't see a continuous rating on their site. You will want to draw as many amps as possible to meet your goals, and a 200a peak will limit you to 18kw peak. "

" It suggests 6L / minute, which I couldn't find, but I found a 12L/minute here http://www.ebay.com/itm/DC12V-Stainless-Steel-Submersible-Diesel-Fuel-Water-Oil-Pump-12L-Per-Minute-38mm-/262718267948?epid=2132727309&hash=item3d2b3aa22c:g6wAAOSwo4pYKSyQ
Maybe a resistor wired in series will slow the motor down to achieve 6L. But maybe 12L will work fine? I have a small Al catch can that I was thinking of putting the pump in as a reservoir, then add a small radiator from a 80cc dirtbike to cool the water. "

Does anyone know or can take a guess as to how he synched 2 motors together? One for low end and one for high end or both synched to assist equally?? Hmmmmm.... "

to increase reliability and prevent heat issues. I'd go with the higher output controller, then if a newer improved motor becomes available, hopefully you wont need to upgrade the controller too.
Thank you for the suggestion.
Yes I am considering to buy the ME1616.
For the water cooling system, can i use Computer Water Cooling System? "

" The Bandit's steel frame will be easier to weld then the Al GSXR frame, so I think it would be a good chassis to convert if you can find a great deal, go for it and be the first to be a Bandit converter! As far as unsprung weight goes if going with a hub motor, just price in some suspension mods (heavier springs and oil) to make the bike handle properly. I think a 2 wheel drive emc would be very interesting!! "

" First time poster...

Curious as to why I can't find any evidence of Suzuki Bandit conversions. Here in the U.K. they are pretty common, cheap, good looking. I'd imagine the 600 would have plenty of space (though they go all the way up to 1200 too).

Any ideas? "
