ahaus created the thread FS near Dallas: Conversion Kit - GSX600F, GBS 60Ah 72V, BMS, D&D Motor, Controller....
" Up for sale is my un-started electric motorcycle conversion project. It is nearly complete with all major components to include:
- Suzuki Katana GSX600F rolling chassis, clear rebuilt title in hand and I had it previously registered
- 24 GBS 60Ah Lithium Ion cells
- Battery Management System from eLite Power Systems
- D&D Sepex Motor with mounting brackets
- Sigma Controller
- two battery chargers
- DC-DC converter
- two solenoids/contactors
- two Magura throttle sets
- fuse block with two fuses
- a ton of documentation, manuals, schematics, drawings, etc.
- miscellaneous components: plexiglass, battery straps, etc.

I would like to sell it as a set but would entertain splitting the rolling chassis from the rest for the right price. I had all intentions of putting together a very strong 72V system built with excellent components but life and family took precedence. Really I want to see this go to a good home where it will be built and put to good use.

I am having issues with the attachment manager so below is a link to a shared folder on Google Drive with information, photos, etc. Let me know if you have any questions so we can make a deal!

The D7500 motor is connected directly to primary transmission? I usually see those electric trials having a primary belt transmission and then a secondary transmission with a chain. Your motor seems to be connected directly to the primary transmission thru the chain. Is that right?

I'm wanting to play with regen soon too.... I think on a dirtbike, having control of motor braking would be great at times. I have a TIG torch amp controller i was thinking I'd try. I'm not sure if the Sevcon can do both with the throttle circuit. I don't know that I want to use my throttle anyway for it. But it would be interesting to try. Please keep us posted. Very cool build! "

So it’s been a while but I’m at the beginning stages of my next project. Just bought the donor bike and waiting for it to be transported interstate. Also waiting for the motor to be sent down from China so in the next couple of weeks I should be able to get started. Wohoo! "

" Cool. Do you have a blog or anything to follow the project? Instagram or something?A list of parts you used? How much do components cost? Motor battery controller transmission?What is the autonomy you have?
Thank you "

" That is interesting... water cooled busbars! I'm planning on wrapping a few temp sensors with silicone tape to my main cables from + and - just to monitor how hot they get. Since Cu is so heavy, air cooling them with aluminum heat sinks would be an interesting experiment. "

Do you know what the Porsche has to be able to tap into those chargers? Whatever it is, I want one... or two or three.
I must say that it will be so sweet.... because I love my Boxster "

" HI
been thinking about it and even asking around..
Any product to recommend?
Yes bus bars definetly on the big side but learning from Ripperton in a YT vid , that cooling of the pack is best done via the busbars, i optet for "enough" thermal capaciy within those bars.

" Looks Good!!!! Those are some thick busbars!!!! I might recommend using some dielectric grease to fill any spots under the busbar. it helps in the long run "

Richard230 created the thread Ultra fast chargers.
" In my newspaper today was a long article written by David Stringer and published by Bloomberg News. It discusses very powerful chargers that are now being introduced to the world market. One company making them is Tritium, located in Brisbane, Australia. They are said to be making among the most advanced car chargers available, promising to deliver a full charge to an EV car battery in just minutes.

The article says that thousands of these charging stations are being installed along highways from Shanghai to Germany to California, with the capacity to charge up to 20 miles of driving range in just one minute. Unfortunately, EVs can not take full advantage of these new charger systems right now and it will be later this year before they start arriving in the EV market.

Another manufacturer of these extreme chargers is Innogy's BTCPower, which has plants in California and the Philippines. Tritium offers charging stations that will add more than 215 miles of range in just 10 minutes. Ionity is building about 400 stations, with as many as six ultra fast chargers each, on European highways.

Electrify America, a VW unit created under a settlement due to their emissions scandal, is spending $2 billion on refueling stations around the U.S. over the next decade. Their first ultra fast charger was installed in Chicopee, Massachusetts last May.

"The speed at which current EVs can recharge is limited by such factors as the size of their batteries, the voltage the pack can accept and the charger's current." The article says it may be years before new electric vehicles can handle the power of these new chargers. Only Porsche's Taycan sports car, to be introduced later this year, will be able to take full advantage of the these ultra chargers. The roll out of the new chargers are considered to be part of a 10 year plan.

"By the end of 2018 there were more than 630,000 public charging stations installed globally, most of which are located in China. By 2030, there may be demand for more than 20 million public EV charging pumps, the International Energy Agency forecasts." According to the article. "

" Hi all,
guess its time for an update.
Finished the battery connections and boxes. . Took a while, not only for being lots of work but also, as its quite intimitating i opted to do only 2s (3P so 6 cells) at a time ... to stay focused.
Went without problems.
Have to exchange the screws for the right ones (already delivered) and do the sense wires while at it.

That done i ran into an unexpected problem..
The upper pack does actually fit into the tank, but oposed to what i had in mind i can not attach it inside as i wanted to.
Well solution to that is to glue it to another plate which will be screwd to the existing motormounts along with the "motor craddle". No big deal there but it means i will somehow have to build some kind of formers into the tank to prevent swaying of the pack. (cause it is only attached to its base)
Guess some fiddly work ahead.

Got new tires on front and back wheels too.

Other than that i have a cycle analyst on order that should arrive sometime next week.

One of the front forks leaking slightly so before final assembly i have to get those "washers" replaced.

Biggest item still missing is a charger ... trying to get my hands on to a pair of eltec FlatpackS units .. so either these or i guess the pfc1500W .
Still some time for that...

Pics show the 12s box that goes in in front of the motor.. the other one basically looks the same...
