I am sorry that I don't have an answer. But I too have bought second hand a Peerless Cyclone.
I got it cheap, for a reason. It had not been assembled properly, the speed control side was on the left hand and was of course upside down. The guy I bought it from was too small for the bike, and as he never had any electric bike experience he didnt have a clue. At the moment I have corrected the brakes and speed control to their proper places. I knew that the speed wasnt constant, on for a bit and then off.
When I picked up the bike,that is how I expected it to be....hallelula the next day I took it for a test, and it cruised beautifully. I took it on a four mile run and it was great. On the was back I hit a bump, and from then on lost power. I thought it was the battery stud connections and yesterday took out the studs and receivers and hard wired it to the controller, just to check it wasnt the connections....it wasn't.
So in general I don't think that the assembly and quality of these machines (made in China...clue!)is quite what it should be, and I believe that they are not exactly cheap.
So basically I have now a collection of 5 various bikes and they all have good points and bad points.
So an accumulated knowledge has its advantages. I have a friend who is a bit with electric stuff so I will show him your question and see what he says and get back to you.
I also have a trailer full of gardening equipment, which I find affords a little more room and respect on the Friday night murdering traffic. c u Mikedebike
