    Baby steps

    Hi
    working like a maniac doesn`t really leave a lot energy for building.
    At least i decided late yesturday to put some cable protection on the spots that might see some rubbing during use..
    Also got my 12V LIFE bat and charger in so that will probably up next..
    stay tuned

    Hi!
    I saw your thread a couple of days ago and thought it was very interesting. I was myself planning to change the motor on a Sach XTC for a Golden electric motor. I already have the "donorbike" but today I found out that my project will not succeed because for the bike to be approved it will have to pass some very expensive testings ( EMC, Electromagnetic compatibility). Do you have any similar problems with the MOT? I've heard that if the bike is newer than 2003 the EMC is required, mine is from 2007. Since we both live in the EU the requirements should be the same?

    Regards
    Mikael

    Hi
    yes regulations are pretty much the same- my bike is 2001 so no emc needet.
    Sell the bike off and get an older instead would be my advice.
    On an older type the change is considered only to be a motor swap. At least here in Germany..
    Good luck

    HI all
    guess its time for an update.
    eventhough there is no visible progress i have at least ordered:

    contactor ( gx14)
    x2.JPG

    switch (HBD31)
    x2.JPG

    and cells. Those:
    x3.JPG

    10 batches of them so 70 cells

    Going for 22s3p (90ah) will give me
    -4 cells spare
    -enough headroom for those usually overrated cells
    -hopefully little voltage sag
    -approx 70-75 usable amphrs for approx 70 miles range.

    As is, i was just informed by the seller that the cells have miracously grown in size. Mainly getting thicker, from 7.5 to 8 millimeter. Which is a bummer, as now they will only fit by lifting the tank about 3 millimeter ( not too bad) and loosing the headroom above the cells in the tank for my cable routing... nothing not to be solved either. But it means that i won`t have the serviceability i was looking for and on top i will loose my charge-plug within the original fuel inlet...
    Still- i got a great price on them and managed to save myself some 260 Euros compared to what they normally go for.

    Anyway all items should be here early dec. and so i am on track again.

    All of the most expensive items being paid i need to save for:
    -CycleAnalist
    -New Tires
    -Charger
    but comes spring i hope to have that sorted.

    I find it hard to imagine that 1/2 mm can cause so much problem! Those are some very tight clearances Flo! Can't you lower them instead of raising them?

    Haha
    i thought so too - at first.
    While it is no problem for the lower pack anyway itīs the pack within the tank causing headache... 0,5mm x 3 (p) times 10 (s) is 1.5 cm which eats up a tad more than the space that was left at the upper edges of he pack. Casing included ...Well i guess gasoline doesn`t come in square helpings
    Will have to raise the tank as the pack sits on a cross member of the frame leaving only one direction to move...

    Hi all
    A question about fuses:
    so far i have found only one (semi?) suitable fuse, this one:
    x4.JPG

    and it says only 80V DC which is slightly less than my fully charged battery will sit at (90V)
    Of course during an actual drive the battery will sag but probably stay for some time above the rating of the fuse..

    Should this concern me? Or is there (from experience) some leeway as long as amps stay within range...

    Any opinions?

    greets
