it's in..... few nick's but a little black nail polish and be mint
something that stood out was the hub wires...tiny
contoller is 36v 22amp 30.5 lvc
this motor is a 9X7 wind
my plans test all components
i was going to open the motor and add a heat sensor
i will also put larger and better wire and conectors on

karma i still want a x5 but couldn't resist the deal after reading up on the 9C
i will build a twin 9C rig for now....
i may still build a x5 this year.....or a X6!!!!

yes i've been following along...sounds pretty mean in the video
doesn't the other shaft have to be hollowed out to run the additional hall wires?
and a pretty robust switch is needed...but you never know

its 6 more wires not 3....
i will just wire for delts without the xtra wires and switch
this will give me room to upgrade the factory wires and add my temp probe
on another note you are now running a krancked fs with the hooligan front end?
if so what lenth non threaded steering tube did you use?

extremely quiet i'm only running at 42v (2xyw bats) but will add another
do you think i'll be running to close to the caps limit of 63v?
i really have to remove my studded tires as they are loud...
also this 9x7 wind 9C has no problem reaching 32kph no pedaling as i have no
gears on this motor yet...do i really need a removal tool to get the gears off a spare rim?

with regular riding i get 12km on 2 of these bats no pedaling
not as torquey as the 1018geared brushed motor but way quiet and smooth
can't wait to feed this motor some volts...
maybe a few more amps would be nice to

most of the time yes you will need a tool to remove the rear sprocket.
anything over 49v with 63v caps is bad. it fine at 49v. there easy to replace if needed

before you mod the shunt, if you dont have one get a Cycle Analyst slowly bring it up to 35amp.
i wouldn't bypass the shunt alltogether. unless you like replacing fets

i'm thinking i'll try a ecrazyman 60v 1200watt 45 amp ...i wonder if he would turn it down to 30amp?
have you tried any of these controllers or heard anything bout them?
