" The pics need to be smaller files because I think of bandwidth. Try to lower the MB size until you find the size that works. You might need to use photo edit tool in your programs. You know, for flipping or changing contrast and brightness or cropping your pics. "

" Resizing them lowers the kB size in effect (for the Avatar pic) or MB size for posting on threads or in the Gallery. If I post from Tapatalk on my cell phone I dont think I need to resize them. I dont usually use my phone though for alot of internet stuff. That is just the easiest way for me on my Ubuntu OS "

" Last summer, I picked up a nice 1980 Kawasaki 440 LTD with a seized engine for $100.00

The guy actually wanted $250.00 because, he said, the carbs were "rebuilt" & worth $100.00 each

So, I said, "will ya take $100.00 CASH & you can keep them carbs, maybe sell them on eBay"

I took 'er home, stripped 'er all down & cleaned 'er up

OH... and to upload pics, sometimes I have to resize them to something like a 2000 pixel x 3000pixel size....that usually works
Yes, I wanted it to keep the look, as close to stock, as I could

Resizing every single pic is a PITA
...isn't there an easier way

Why don't I have to resize my pics on other forums? "

I didn't think so... I'm still trying to learn how to integrate solar panels with different battery packs. I have 4 deep cell Pb acid batts to make one battery bank with, and then the retired Nissan Leaf bank to make another one. I was going to make the Pb acid bank a separate 12 volt system, and keep the Nissan bank a separate high 110 volt system. I'm researching different solar converters/chargers now. I have a lot to learn still on how to tie it all together. Sorry for taking your thread off topic!! "

Richard230 created the thread Alta R5.8 battery pack article.
" The September/October issue of Motorcyclist magazine contains a two-page article, starting on page 32, titled "Alta R5.8 Pack". You get one big photo of the outside of the battery enclosure and 1/3 of a page of text. So you should be able to read the entire article at a magazine stand in about 2 minutes. Or you can buy the magazine for $12. Anyway, the point of the article is to let the reader know that the 2018 Alta battery modules have been upgraded with a unique battery chemistry designed to yield maximum energy release over longer periods at lower temperatures. This new battery pack will allow the Redshift MXR to produce 50 hp and 42 pound-feet of torque, 10 better than the older version, using the identical motor."

The article also states: "The company won't say what's in the mix or exactly what it changed compared to the 2017 pack. Alta claims that information - and even the identity of the manufacturer of those cells - is proprietary." "

" I have had a ton of fun riding my completed project over the past year, but would like to sell it in order to buy a Zero.
I am not interested in parting out as I still use it as my daily commuter bike.

For some reason it is not showing up on the EValbum site, but hopefully it will soon.

Components:
Vehicle-2004 Kawasaki ex500 ninja 500 I bought a salvaged ninja 500 at an auction and removed the ICE, swapping in all electrical components and made it roadworthy by replacing seals, bearings, brakes, and tires.

Motor - Mars ME1003

Controller - Alltrax SR 72400

Drivetrain- Direct drive, 14T front, 55T rear 3.9:1

Batteries - 11 Nissan Leaf 62AH cells in series configuration. Kept slightly under-charged to stay within Alltrax voltage limits and to prolong battery life
System voltage - 90V

Charger - Delta-Q Technologies Delta-Q QuiQ-Icon On-Board 72V Battery Charger

Instrumentation - Cycle-analyst V3, always on rear-view camera

Domino throttle

New headlights as well as old fiberglass fairing with headlight

Top Speed - 70 MPH (112 KPH) I take it on the highway somewhat regularly, but it has limited power for passing at max speed.

Acceleration - Very brisk, about 4-5 seconds 0-60mph. I can out-accelerate every car I've encountered at stop-lights so far.

Range - approximately 50 Miles (80 Kilometers) My daily commute is about 20 miles, so I rarely go further. Range is significantly longer if ridden at speeds that are not fun (20mph)

Tires - Brand new Michellin pilot street radial

Odometer - Frame has 70,000 miles, but all bearings were replaced and structural integrity was meticulously verified. About 3500 EV miles so far.

Attachment 7844Attachment 7845Attachment 7846Attachment 7847

Asking $5000, willing to deliver within 2 hours of San Antonio, TX. Clean blue Texas title "

" Q about dumpcharging one pack from another...

If you have a 100v pack drained down to 72 v, how do you calculate the max voltage of your charging pack? And does there need to be a shunt and fuse between the two packs? "
