" The time has come for my Ninja 250 conversion to go...

It was a very fun build, with lots of input and support from the crowd here at El Moto. It was a blast to ride, but one afternoon one of the cells vented some of its goo, and lost some of its capacity. A job and career change left me focusing on other things, and I couldn't find a replacement for that model CALB cell. Eventually, with other things in the forefront, the pack dropped to 0 volts in storage, and it's been that way since. I've thrown around ideas from pulling the cells, and going with Leaf batteries or something similar, or stripping the whole thing down, and reusing some parts on a dual sport frame, which I'd enjoy more than the Ninja's riding position... but I've never quite gotten motivated to do that over other more interesting vehicle projects my wife and I have taken on like an MG Midget and Jeep YJ.Attachment 8668Attachment 8669Attachment 8670Attachment 8671Attachment 8672Attachment 8673

So, before tearing it down to part out, I thought I'd offer it up as a project bike. It's a modified Ninja 250 frame (side struts added to compensate for removal of the engine, which is a stressed member of the frame) that has a valid Florida title, Mars ME0709, Kelly KD72401, 24 SE40AHA currently reading 0 volts, Mini BMS, Cycle Analyst, TSL72-15 Charger from Elite Power Solutions (I believe mfg by Sky Energy), Vicor power converter for onboard 12v with manual kill switch to break the traction pack's circuit and decorative arc reactor in the gas tank.

If interested, let me know.

" According to this wiring diagram ABS is a separate unit 49. http://www.deltasign.de/moto/gts/GTS1000_SHALTPLAN.jpg

Maybe you can reuse old wiring, but i think since ABS unig take kn signals from tachometer it can be challeging to make it work. "

Mattson created the thread Hello from Finland and a question about ABS.
" Hi folks actually been registered for a while but been away for a long time since my previous plans to build a homemade e-bike fell through. A couple bikes later here I am again with a question.

Ok, now my current plan would be to e-convert a Yamaha GTS1000 because of it`s weird frame so I`d basically have a rolling chassis on which to build whatever I please, but the problem is the GTS has ABS brakes. Does anyone here know if the ABS system can be separated and made to work standalone`and what all parts I`d need to save from the bike? The ABS pump naturally but what makes it tick? Where is the brainbox that controls it, is it a separate unit or part of the ECU?

Thanks for any tips on this! "

jhaggerty created the thread 11KWh 115V battery pack $1500.
" Located in Sn Jose CA, this 7 module Gen 4 leaf pack has seen little use only between 20-80% and has a BMS. You can see where it was used in my build thread about the electric RF600.

Selling because I now own an Energica and I know these could be put to good use in a project. From my anecdotal testing these have near 100%SoH.

Would prefer not to ship, but will deliver within 5 hours of San Jose if you live near good camping, climbing, or rock climbing!

" Our home built (not the frame) project drag bike with used Chevy volt batteries finally broke 100 mph with a pass last night of 102.81.
Not the fastest bike out there, but still a fun ride at the track.

" I'm a husky ICE fan... but ya I agree not too exciting. However, it looks like they are on board with a standardized quick change battery module.
I still think batteries should be part of the competitive nature of racing so that we get better batteries sooner. The race team with the best batteries WINS! "

Stevo replied to the thread Newbie in the UK, possible EX500 conversion.
" Welcome!
True, lots to learn.
Personally, I don't use a public charging station as the nearest one is at a mall about 25 miles away from my home. My bike has a range of 40 miles so its possible I suppose, but my charger is too big to mount on the bike itself, so I just charge in my garage. I really only use the bike to commute to and from work, about 5 miles round trip, and an occasional 30mile blast around town or running errands. "
