jhaggerty created the thread Zero 75-5 Motor.
" I have a Zero 75-5 motor for sale in the Bay Area California. I've shifted to riding production bikes (2021 Energica SS9+ ) and am hoping to find someone who will make a cool project out of this. I am willing to ship, but it will likely be decently expensive since the motor weighs about 40 pounds.

Price: $750


I am also parting out the motorcycle I built that has a Kelly KDHE 600A controller, ME1003 motor, and 11.5KWH of Gen 4 leaf batteries with a BMS that consistently got me about 60 miles of range.

looking for $2500 for the batteries (local or drive to me to pickup only)
$800 for the motor and controller pair
or $3000 for the whole bike with title "

" It is a lot bigger than I expected.
Dunno why. I knew it was 17 inches, and I mocked up the dimensions, but seeing it in person is... wow.

I look forward to seeing your experiment

" Hello all!

We are looking to knock off some time on our drag runs.
I have always felt the Toque at Zero RPM is not really translating to the wheels when the motor is stationary in a AC system.

We have a motorcycle manufacturer that builds automatic clutches for various bikes and have chatted with him about this project.
I have sent him our specs what we think we need to get the bike to launch harder.

Please do not suggest more batteries, a bigger motor, etc. What we have on the bike is what we have. This project is for a SPECIFIC application.
If i had a bigger bike I would add more batteries, a bigger motor, etc.

We also have the Wife's electric Legends drag car that we might do the same to if this works well enough.

Questions and constructive comments are always welcome.

The cell balancing current is only like an amp I think.
It does not auto balance unless you have that setting turned on, and then only when you're charging, but you can manually initiate a balance from the app if you want to.

" Here they go again. This time on LiveWires, no doubt backed up by a huge contingent of support equipment, including trucks with portable generators to recharge the bikes and technicians to repair them if anything goes wrong - and also maybe guys in trench coats with bags of money to pay off officials at the border crossings. :
