    If it was the 650A model, I would have snagged up the controller. Good luck on the sale.

    I've seen at least one person throw in the towel with the ME1302 /DLC 28 (liquid cooled "Motenergy") motor and selling them out of frustration when they couldn't get the programming down. Unless...

    Hello, Portsmouth VA here.

    Building an electric motorcycle, just started.
    Also have a converted Sandrail capable of highway speeds.

    I've learned a lot along the way. If you're ever in the...
  7. Picked up this electric motorcycle, looking to make this one fast.

    Here's some photos of the previous owner's conversion:

    He had the small Motenergy brushed motor and low voltage for moped duty. His motor eventually fried and 2...

    Huh, interesting. I guess I wasn't paying attention. Looks like it's similar to the SPM model in wiring. I don't think they have a replacement for the bigger controllers because they're a...

    I think it's always helpful to post comparative builds. This is an ultra-light, clearly low speed geared go-kart with a brushed Motenergy motor:

    It's a good small brushed PMC motor. Great power to weight, but I'd be weary of expecting it to reliably do highway speeds without requiring annoying cooling methods.

    All the benefits of a good...

    I'm not sure what your range goals are, but 10 leaf cells probably aren't going to cut it if you want to much highway driving. That's a little under 5 kWh.

    For reference, Zero motorcycles list...

    Why are they recommending a "series" motor controller for a Permanent Magnet motor? Series have 4 connections (S1, S2, A1, A2). The ME1003 only has 2. It seems like you're going to have to...

    Wanted: Simple CC/CV charger for 28S LIPO

    Acceptable termination voltage: 114.8v-117.6

    I'll take anything between 500w-2000w.

    Located: Portsmouth, VA (USA)
  17. Wanted: Old stock mechanical fan for AC-20 / AC-23 / AC-9 / or AC-15 motor.

    Found one, thanks

    Well... the wire itself should be fused. I think it was 5A, but my memory is fuzzy. The turn-on was essentially logic. I never measured the current, but I never feared that a generic 110v A/C...

    I just knew he was using Alltrax with a peak of 90v. It's pretty much just a key-on signal at minimal current, so I saw no reason why a standard 110v A/C rated switch couldn't handle it, which are...

    I'd probably do a DPST rocker switch. DP stands for double pole, meaning it's got 2 separated connections internally. The ST stands for single throw, meaning a simple "on/off" connection. DPST...

    haha... well crap.

    My Sandrail is around 1000 lb. I do have the advantage of 4-speeds to work with to reduce the load, but I need to think of something to improve motor cooling. I think I...

    Was your motor overheating? When you end up getting that special filament and design your AC-20 heatsink, I might pay you to to make me one.
