    1500w leaf motor conversion questions

    I found the kit online and was interested. I live in a high wind area and riding uphill into headwind is no fun.

    Can I use a 48v 20ah ping battery or similar with black.

    I noticed the batteries is seen were only rated for 1000w. The price jump for 30/40ah batteries is significant, so I wanted to use a 20ah.thanks for the help. I've never built an e bike and I'm a complete noob so bear with me.

    Thanks

    Don't use a motor that powerful on the front. The front fork is a fulcrum arm. That much juice on the end of it can shear the fork clean off the bike.
