Re: Juicing Up Pictures

Do you carry around a Continuity Tester? I carry one around all the time, you'd be amazed at how many Live/Neutral have loose connections or missing a ground when you plug in the cord.

Re: Repairs Upgrades and more

I always forget to install the extra piece that comes with the XT90 connector. Besides, it usually melts as I try to keep jacket as close to the termination cups of the xt90 as possible.

edit: That mastic epoxy hardens up well. We'll see how durable it is over time.

Re: Juicing Up Pictures

This particular mini mall, in a new community, had ZERO outside outlets, NONE! I remembered this outlet because last time I needed juice real bad, about a year ago. I scoped the mini mall out doing several circlings (sp?), back then I noticed the outlet inside a locked door at 8pm. What you see is t...

Re: Troubleshooting hub motor

Thats why its best to always have spares.
Buy two sensorless controllers from Greentime and call her a day.

Meanwhile open up the controller and sniff it :lol: then look for any black marks.
Then crack open the motors cover plates, do another sniff test and eyeball the mofo.

Get rid of any pcb boards attached to the battery, that will be the only way to use that battery.

Re: E-Trike conversion & ride Video. 100% solar charged.

Whats the advertised efficiency rate of the $75 100W solar panels?
Be interesting to see the true eff. rate.

I would look into flexible solar panels myself, nice and compact for regular camping or e-bike camping.

Re: Type of wire for phase wires

Look into the Teflon PTFE wire, its durable but not as flexible. If I were rewiring the phase wires from the windings outward I would use that.

For your case study, any ole wire will do from Hobby Kings flavor to large big gauge speaker wire, 12g 10g etc

Re: Another Stealth bomber (clone) build

You can get adapters to make taper fork tube fit on your bicycles headtube. It changes the dynamics of the fork, making the front a tad taller.
