I had a user programmer and configured it to use a three wire pot, I had bought a 3 wire potentiometer from amazon and used that to test run the motor few months ago before reselling the programmer. So yes it is configured for a three wire pot. Wondering how to use the microswitch though. Worries if the microswitch goes bad, the motor will just spin out of control specially while i am riding it!! Wondering if the microswitch gets connected to the controller somewhere. Couldnt find any wiring schematic of curtis 1238 with the microswitch or the Domino throttle wired to Curtis Controller. Zero use to use Domino throttle for their bikes.

" The throttle is working fine now. There are two green wires for micro-switch that needs to be connected together for the throttle to send proper signal. Else it sends hight throttle signal "

Perhaps you need to stop the world turning. I guess you get what you pay for. And also perhaps the magazine didn't actually test the apps that they reviewed. Obviously I have no answer to your question as I struggle to make a phone call with my smart phone - much less getting an app to work. "

" Can you point me to your documentation for the Domino? And what documentation you're using for wiring the Curtis?

See this:
http://curtisinstruments.com/Uploads...638E_RevC3.pdf

page 6.

Throttle HIGH is pin 15
Throttle WIPER is pin 16
Throttle LOW is pin 18

According to this:
http://electricmotorcycleforum.com/b...p?topic=5252.0

you have White is Throttle low, Black is throttle wiper, and Blue is throttle high.

Have you tested the throttle with a multimeter?


Are you sure you have the motor phases in the right direction? If they're backwards, it won't align with the encoder, and could spin out of control. "

I do not have a programmer handy but it did work with a another potentiometer with a three wire with a high, middle and low connection. I did not try with the domino throttle earlier "

What pins are you wiring the throttle to on the sealed connector on the Curtis?
Pin 15, 16 and 18

If I want to do a 2 wire throttle what pin should i use? Domino has a two wire configuration also. They also have two wire for microswitch. I dont know what that is for though. "

" has any one used the Domino or Magura throttle? I wanted to know the wiring with Curtis 1238. I wired it up yesterday,
- white throttle wire to pot low on curtis controller (Purple and white wire)
- Black throttle wire to pot wiper on curtis controller (Yellow and white wire)
- Light blue throttle wire to pot high on curtis controller (Black and white wire)

When i turned on the switch the motor just went high, even when i twisted the throttle the motor did not slow down. I tried reversing the pot high and pot low wires but still the same. "
