    New batteries for a vintage electric motorcycle

    Hello everybody, this is my first post on this interesting forum.

    I live in Italy and I imported a trial electric motorcycle form USA in 2001.
    The bike is a Denali Tork Atak, with a 36V motor for 275 A, with a Curtis PMC controller model 1204 (from a golf cart).
    It has been using 3 lead batteries 12 V that I changed several times in the past years, but the riding time is really short (from 10 to 20 minutes).

    I was wondering if with the new lithium batteries pack and the available space (10" L , 7" W , 7" H) I could have more riding time.

    Any expert wishing to help me ?

    Thanks in advance and ciao ciao

    Look for battery packs used for Hover Boards on ebay. They are 10S2P 36v4ah. Use 5 in parallel for 36v 20ah. They already have a BMS. Only buy ones that state Samsung or LG cells. Also buy a Hoverboard 36v charger.

    Even with the brand selection, I would avoid hoverboard cells. It is common for manufacturers to lie about the cell origin.

    I bought 3 packs for my E-bike from ebay, batteries labeled as Samsung. Working great all summer!
