    The throttle is working fine now. There are two green wires for micro-switch that needs to be connected together for the throttle to send proper signal. Else it sends hight throttle signal

    I had a user programmer and configured it to use a three wire pot, I had bought a 3 wire potentiometer from amazon and used that to test run the motor few months ago before reselling the programmer. So yes it is configured for a three wire pot. Wondering how to use the microswitch though. Worries if the microswitch goes bad, the motor will just spin out of control specially while i am riding it!! Wondering if the microswitch gets connected to the controller somewhere. Couldnt find any wiring schematic of curtis 1238 with the microswitch or the Domino throttle wired to Curtis Controller. Zero use to use Domino throttle for their bikes.

    That doesn't make sense. That microswitch shouldn't do anything to the throttle signal.

    Where did you buy the domino throttle?

    It sounds like the wiring is all fudged up inside. Can you take it apart and see what wires are connected to the Pot and what wires are connected to the microswitch?

    With the axis of your motor shaft forward of the swing arm pivot, the belt may go through being too tight to too loose as the rear suspension moves through its travel. Belts are less tolerant of this than roller chains. Zero bikes and I think Hugues' have the the motor shaft axis concentric with the swing arm pivot, eliminating this problem. In your case, you may need something like a Buell/Harley type belt tensioner to keep the belt from slipping teeth or being too tight.

    You may have to fabricate one yourself... ATK used to make a chain torque eliminator:atkchaintorqelim.jpg
    Grainger sells several self adjusting tensioners. You probably will need to adapt one on top and on bottom of swingarm:
