Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

I went with a HDPE plastic skid plate from Australia $60 delivered to Hawaii.It don’t bend and slides over stuff easy and I have tested it on boulders .

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Just installed a new skid plate made from HDPE from a Australia Sur-Ron aftermarket parts maker,(https:racespecsurron.com)$65 delivered,seems very solid and should slide over stuff better than the fragile stock skid plate.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

My friend with the Ktm300 has his Sur-Ron coming in tomorrow,he’s tired of the electric bike being faster and easier to ride.He can climb hills faster but those aren’t as common as the muddy tight woods riding on Kauai,Sur-Ron still climbs them at a slower speed. For brake pads:Shimano H03C sintered...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

I just got back from a muddy ride on Kauai. My friends ride a trials bike and the other rides a 2019 Ktm 300,where in our 60’s.The Sur-Ron is so much easier to ride!

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

I just did a mod that gave me 1mph higher top speed and quieter operation.On EBay look under Niche 420 Xring chain,comes from Canada by Fedx ,3 days to Hawaii.Way less friction than broken in Oring chain,should get even better.Side benefit was less noise.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Primary drive chain upgrade:I bought the kit from Luna,but there kit included the wrong motor sprocket ( was the 14t that bolts to the jack shaft,flat,no hub.While waiting for Luna to ship the right version I found a 12t go cart 420 sprocket in 3/4 bore,needed to be honed to fit the Sur-Ron motor sh...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

The 60v battery is suppose to weight 20lb,I think the 48v weighs less,maybe you could weight both your packs.I wouldn’t trust a Chinese vender or they made an honest labeling mistake.If you can prove it’s not the correct version,then you should be able to get all your money back from your cc on “ no...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Could it be that they sent you the 48v version Sur-Ron battery?Otherwise it sounds damaged and might be a fire hazard.
