" Travis,

Thanks for the validation. In my links I also mentioned Dave from Alaska who used this motor at 72V successfully. Thanks for taking the time to read and respond.

I am serious about getting this put in good hands with someone that can afford the time to put it together.

That being the case I'm willing to let it go for pennies on the dollar. "

I believe that your motor is a separately excited motor only rated at 48 volts. I think that 72v might let the magic smoke escape. The controller looks nice, but I believe that it was used on the brushless Perm 120 motors in the Brammo Enertia bikes. I am not entirely certain that it will work with that motor.

You'd probably be better off with a part out. You seem to have an impressive list of components, but as far as I know, there may be problems putting it together.
Sigma makes both Sepex and some AC drives. In his links, he lists out the model of the controller (SET835M, SET I think stands for Separately Excited Traction). He states it was programmed by Barefoot Motors. I know that Barefoot used the Sigma Drive controllers on their ATV, and that Brammo was right down the street and there was some talking between the groups. Not surprised that the same brand controller was used in the Enertia.

Also, at 72V, the motor is fine, even possibly to higher voltage. It's wound specifically for 48V, but can tolerate 72V. Barefoot tested this with their 72V pack quite extensively if I recall correctly.

This is back maybe 2008/2009 or so. "

" Hi,
An update :
This is the scoot I purchased for 200Euro. Great nick really except, like I say, it has an intermittent spark issue and the ubiquitous oil leak
Attachment 8225

...and this is it once stripped down :
!Attachment 8224

This week I plan to finish tidying up the electrics ready for the Li-Ions, Motor and Controller etc...

I'm still not yet sure how I'm going to 'link' the mid-mount motor to the rear wheel. Th motor I've purchased has a max 5000 rpm which, from calculations, wont be sufficient with the existing vari-drive and internal-to-rear-hub 14:1 gear box but we'll see when I get that far !
I have stripped down the gearbox and see no way to 'bypass' it. Sure, I can lengthen the gears within it but initial calcs would indicate I can't lengthen them enough.
I have given a LOT of thought to removing the vari-drive and replacing it with a fixed belt arrangement but fixing the front belt pulley looks really restricted as the motor has a short shaft and a T8F machined head on it...
I'm now thinking about whether I can remove the var-drive completely and modify the rear-gearbox input shaft to accept a T8F sprocket directly. The challenge here is that it seems pretty impossible for the average DIY'er to remove the input shaft from the gearbox (in order to machine the T8F slotted head and nut thread... So... my little head is still working out the options, challenges, advantages and disadvantages of each here. Like I said at the outset, the idea here is NOT to simply throw money at the project but, rather, to keep the whole project within the remit of an average / competent DIY'er... otherwise I still foresee tons of these things continuing to be scrapped / not tried to be converted due to cost and difficulties etc... Having said all that I'm just as keen to make sure the final project isn't heath-robinson and is still quick enough etc to be worth-while doing ! We'll see... "

" Hi Stevo,
That sounds like the sort of functionality I was looking for. If possible I'd like a charger that I can 'limit' to cut-off at the 80% full point (or there abouts). I'm probably being retentive but I'm learning and...
I'll go take a look anyways and see what I come up with. Thanks. "

" Hi, I am trying to get my CBR 600 electrified, I am using a Sevcon Gen4 Size6 and match it with a AC20 motor. I came across this thread and I see Robert was able to get them to work together. Does anyone have any dcf / dld file for pairing the sevcon with an AC20 or similar motor? I am unable to get it to work. Any help with be appreciated. "

got the upper pack (10s) finished with sense cables and fixed to the bike - no pic though

Holder for the emergency cut off done:

fits nicely:

Now i had to get it not only attached to upper battery pack but also line up the hole in the tank for it to go through...
all nice to have cnc and cad at hand but an with an unknown shape - hmmm
Some rocked sience was on order - using a high tech aproach for lining up:

together with the most advaned tools:

produced a nice coutout.

now only glue on and make sure it doesn`t wander off downwards
