" Flo sorry to read this! Did you think of any other controller brand like Fardriver or ASI etc? I see lots of builds using these with success. Hope you can resolve it quickly and enjoy your riding season!

cheers

" looks like a good concept to build a bike.
Why it would cost 18 grand still? must be the harley markup then..
other than that i am intrigued.

" About to give up...
Well after a lot of mailing to an d back and some anydesk sessions it seems that the sin cos encoder is doa.
Today the new one arrived but now i only get error messages... still not a single ride on the bike...
The guy, even friendly and knowledgeable only answers after a week and a remainder...
a new motorf7controller combo would be anything between 2 and 20 Weeks time...

By the time this bike gets on the road season will be over.
I am completely dissapointed by sevcon.
Following the guideline to only get a paired motor and controller has got me to spend 2300 Euros for 0,0 in return...


thinking about getting another kelly for lack of sources for a smc controller...

mid may and zero riding, worst riding season in 32 years

If the weight of the drive wheel is properly sprung and dampened, it could be used to actually improve drivability and torque. I wonder how well it could survive big bumps in an offroad version.

I still think electric hydraulic loops would be a good way to drive motorcycles... lighter and easier to add 2 wheel drive.
But this is awesome engineering for a street bike. "

" First time on this forum. I have thought about building an electric motorcycle for a long time. I just haven't gone past the "thinking about it" stage. I already have too many projects going on but what the heck. Building a one-ton truck, working on an MGB, trying to get my old Harley and an '84 Goldwing back on the road so I surely need another project. I have a nearly complete Harley rolling frame with no motor or tranny. Why not electric? I am an old retired guy, so I do need to keep busy. "

" Perhaps, "discussed" would have been a better adjective to use, but "reviewed" was the only word I could think of at the time. Anyway, the Electrom was an interesting prop to use as I had never heard of the vehicle before, much less seen one being ridden on the road. "

" There is a setting "TPS dead high" which is set to 95%. I guess thats why it dies when I hold the throttle fully open. "

" Well, it is possible that I found the problem. The controller was set to 2-speed function. I will see if the change to "normal" will do any difference, tomorrow. "

Jan created the thread My project and a problem.
" My project is a Husqvarna SM610 with a Golden Motors 10 kW brushless dc motor, 48V, 60A, 14S Nissan Leaf cells, a Kelly 70501 8080I controller and a "Speed throttle z6". I bought everything from miromax.lt (except for the frame of course). Only thing I have connected now is throttle, no regen braking and no "shift". (There is a slider button for low, high and normal speed.)
What's strange is, if I give full throttle and holds it for just a few seconds my bike dies and I have to shut everything down before restarting it again. Second thing is that it doesn't happen anything when I turn the throttle just a little.
Can it be a setting in the controller that cuts off when I am holdig full throttle? Attachment 8737 "

" These two new French electric motorcycle models look nice and clean. As French vehicle designs go these are not bad looking. Pretty traditional, with just a electric power pack lump inserted into the frame. Since they are low production bikes, their prices are not exactly bargains: https://thepack.news/rgnt-motorcycle...tore-in-paris/ "

" Hi,
thanks for your offer.
I bought this programmed and paired as a set incl theis xaat thingy...
I have multiple printouts and screenshots and wiring shemes for it that the programmer supplied.
Even pics of my setup on his test stand...


SOOO it should work as it has run on his testbench..
I just do not know which teeny little detail keeps it from actually spinning.

As mentioned i get solid green Led, contactor closes, and the motor audible reacts to throttle imput.

I am confused and the seller simply does not reply to my mails eventhough he advertises aftersales support big time on his webpage...
Initial investigation on his shop found me only positive comments within the e-cart comunity for him...

" I can send you my dcf file to see if it will work with your motor.
Maybe Travis can send you the proper dcf for your motor, if he sees this.
If you want to try and upload my dcf into your controller, send me an email and I will send it to you. Just be sure to save your current one in case it fails to work for you.
Here is the only email I have for him, not sure if he still uses it:

" Hi all,
late last year i bought a gen4 size4 and matching ME1115 for a good price here in europe.
Togetther with this IXAAT or whatever programming thingy as a matched bundle.
for dirfferent reasons i only got around to install it a few weeks ago.
Unfortunately i cannot get it to spin up.
I get a solid green LED with no error flashes and one can hear the motor reacting to throttle but not spinning

It seems that it "fires up" one phase but not getting to do so with the other 2
If i aply some torque to it i cn get it up to us about 2,5 KW but not to start spinning,
here is a vid of it reacting to throttle:

contactor closing all switches closed, no error LED...

I am out of ideas.
