" Read my post. The controllers are set to torque mode when I program them. With no load it will runaway because it requires very little torque. It's fine. Put a load on it or mount it and ride it it won't runaway. Throttle controls torque. "

" That was the coolest event I have ever been to. Saw your bike, all the TTXGP bikes, the Monotracer, and some kid with a bunch of hot models...Terry something. :-) My wife and I are even in the movie for several seconds. That was as good as it will ever get for me. "

" Well.... The motor fits ! (I take good measurements) and this is a MANLY motor. 1 1/8" shaft no less.

I recommend you see Travis at Electro Motive Force, LLC to get one..... (This was a non paid endorsement,
I am not related to him and he does have me in some compromising photos...at least I don't think so.) "

" As I was riding around today on my Zero, a thought occurred to me. I wonder what will happen to all of the motors, Sevcon controllers, contactor switches, frames, wheels, brakes and other expensive chassis and electronic parts on those 2012 Zeros after the batteries are removed and recycled? I hope they are put back on the market for DIY use, instead of being tossed into the dumpster because that is what will make liability lawyers happy. "

" EV200 or LEV200? It was my understanding the LEV is the non economizer version.
Either way, yes I will have a suitable contactor installed other than my keyswitched one as soon as possible.
The motor is hooked up to the bike and at this point I have most of the settings how I want them. The only issue is that any more than a hair of throttle and it will continue to run away accelerate even when throttle is reduced with fwd and Foot switch disconnected.
I Imagine that one of the gains somewhere has to be off. I'll keep digging. 2 hours every night and eventually i'll crack it.
Thanks "

" The controller is set for torque mode, so throttle percent = torque percent. The RPM can very easily spin out of control if there's no load on the motor. Once it's installed in a vehicle, it'll feel more like the original ICE. I think you're expecting it to operate in Speed mode, where throttle percent = motor RPM percent.

Not sure what contactor you got, but do NOT use an EV200. They don't work properly with the Sevcon.

Don't operate without having the sevcon control the contactor. I just don't recommend it. It's OK for now, but the sevcon cannot disconnect itself if there's a fault. Just interrupt power to KSI if you want to turn off/on the controller. "

" Well I ordered a new contactor and I was able to get it spinning by setting contactors to 0 and setting it to ignoring contactor welded faults. Then Turn on -> connect FWD -> and then it goes whenever FS1(throttle switch) is on and the throttle input is above min.
Only issue I have now is that the bike accelerates to runaway and I have to slam the E stop to stop it from taking off. A tiny amount of throttle seems OK. Anymore and It just takes off! Maybe because FS1 turns off?
I guess I need to look and see if the throttle is mapped to something crazy.

Getting closer :-) I am super excited for the torque. "
