    Fitting them in that direction in a bike would be hard i bett. Do you have the vertical room to mount them smallest side down?

    They will be fitted horizontally on edge, 3 wide. In any normal build I would set them vertically, but my decision to go with shaft drive equals a longitudinal motor mount, which takes up that space.

    These modules look to be modified for ~48V ? ~27" long for the modules? I have not been able to fit them lengthwise in any motorcycle frame without cutting and stretching the wheel base. Have not looked at Beemers yet.

    Hi spaceweasel

    Great project, I've wanted to do similar for some time. My biggest gripe is the motor taking up so much space. I'm not sure if my planned layout would work with the length of your motor. I hope to mount the motor facing forward beneath the shaft drive input and use a belt primary drive to take power from the motor to the shaft drive.

    My idea is that the shaft drive can attach to the back of a stressed battery box that the motor also mounts to and all the motor and battery assembly is hard mounted together then rubber mounted onto the chassis. Batteries can stack in front of the motor and up between the chassis spars. That's a key attraction of the k series bikes for me, plus the longer wheel base gives more space and better stability for all the battery weight.

    I hope to find a donor I can afford soon and then I'll let you know how I get on.

    But I look forward to reading about your journey with this project sir. Hope it goes well. Love your battery choice.

    Cheers
    Tyler

    Thank you for sharing your project! Iíve had a Warp9 and 175V 1000A controller sitting under a bench for 5 years wondering what to do with it, now I know!

    A whole 15KwHs such a nice large battery for an electric bike.
    Got a side on view so we can see the length of the batteries.
