Just fyi per the Mfg the 5555 has a flaw when trying to key CW with it. I had sold my 5555 v6 unit a few years back to someone based on spec for CW use and got immediate response from him as the buyer, and direct from Mfg there was a delay like flaw with the 5555. There use to be Ytube videos up...
This does 30mph all day long. Much more zippy than the fat tire. Guessing less weight and less rolling resistance (aka skinny tires) helps. Did simple 12v headlight, tail/brake combo, and horn. (Just like last one). No turn signals and such on this demo build. This is the bike that customers can...
Next build for the new business I'm trying to do. Kiss budget build ($45 used bike) as the advo piece.
Just headlight, tail, and horn on this.
Same 1200w/48v kit (not fat tire, just 26"). Mock up today. Waiting on the motor to get here.
I've learned by putting 110 miles on it to and from work a few things.
I need to move the rear side lights back as my heel catches them once and awhile.
Check for anything lose weekly.
The ride is cool at night when it's less than 50' F and you don't own gloves. (n)
Doing 15-20mph avg will...
So I put the 48/12 on. Says like .01 amp no load draw.
Also did front white marker with amber signals and the better 12v scooter horn. Rear is red marker with amber signals. Simple led flasher.
Still need to fix the spaghetti.
The issue I have is most motorcycle LED or regular bulbs are rated for the 12v range and not 48v. Also when power is off on the battery with main switch on side of battery it cuts everything so there would be no draw.
I ordered in 2 motorcycle turn signals already for the rear forks and have 2...
So road test was interesting. Battery wasn't fully charged. Went 13 miles full level 9 throttle. Battery was at like 47% when I got home and let it settle back in. (Said like 17% with motor in use at that point).
Top speed was higher at 32.1 miles per hour on flat (than 22mph with old LED...
Weight hasn't really changed. The kit was like 17 lbs. the bike was 43 lbs.
You can still change gears and use regular.
Also pedal assist let's you play with gearing as well and you can do little assist on setting 1 or max assist on 9. You can still get a workout or not.
20w Headlight, 110db horn, and crank tool due in tomorrow. Then I can add the pedal assist sensor to the hub.
I'm eventually going to get a 48v-12v 10amp down converter and get motorcycle small peg lights for the four corners like marker lights too. Can't be too safe.
So I was going to go with a 50cc scooter and ride to work occasionally. But since the person I'm living with didn't want it in the house I went another direction.
I picked up one of the last Mongoose Argus ST26 bikes for $399 from Amzn. Has 4" x 26" fat tires and is a 7 speed.
