I got my stuff today! Good news and bad news. The good news is that the chain installation went off without a hitch. I measured the length, and hacked the heck out of a link until my master link would work on it. Now the bike has the old electric scooter whiz sound I remember.

Bad news is that the 5k pot I got isn't the right pot.

I re-tested the pot off the servo tester and it is a 20k pot. Is there any way I can make my 5k pot work? Maybe add some resitors or change some settings on the esc?

I see. I think it's just my servo tester uses a 20k pot and I need a 5k pot. I'll look into getting that servo tester my next order from hobbycity. Thanks!

With the incorrect pot you will get 1 of 2 things

a. you will never get full travel to the tester

b. the signal that the tester sees will be very narrow

like full lock one way will be 1/16th of an inch.

you need the correct one for it to work correctly

Whats your run times? or have you really tested it yet. im thinkg about doing a mini bike or pocket bike instead. and i have seen a pocket bike that looks exactly like yours and its allready electric. but is this the one you have? the motor mount on the one i saw looks like yours.

Well, it depends on how much capacity the batteries still have left in em. An estimate is 36wh/mi for this type of motor. If I was running 36v, my theoretical range would be 10mi. I don't think I'll come close though, with my leads and 24. Maybe 3-6 miles.

you should get a couple 6s 5000mah 20c turnigy lipos. they are $60 each and they should be more than enough for your setup........unless fat bastard (from Austin Powers) wants to take that bike for a spin.


They say a good mechanic only needs 2 tools - WD40 & Duct tape. If it moves, and its not supposed to, duct tape. If it doesn't move, and its supposed to, WD40.

Lipos are on my list. My list that is a "whenever I feel like upgrading this thing" list. I'll probably get 4 so in the future I can run 12s2p setups on bigger outrunners and bigger bikes..

But 2 might be enough for now.. Unless like you said, fat bastard tries to ride this thing. It'll need some serious power then!!

This one was already electric. It had a full 180 watts. Now it has a motor rated for 2400 watts.

You'll probably still have to make a mount. Some motors are mounted with the front but most likely they'll be mounted by a plate welded to the bottom of the can of the motor.

****Performance Report****

I measured out a 1 mile loop. The terraing is extremely smooth asphault. It's ideal conditions minus a little wind. With the 10ah 24v sla pack, I got 5.5 good miles out of it and it died at 5.75 miles. I was able to limp back and finish the 6th mile. Average speed was about 10mph and avaerage mile times were about 5:30-6:00. Temps were about 105 controller, 90 motor, and the batteries were ambient. I don't know what top speed is, but on a fully charged pack it's probably 20-25mph. It seems like it's haulin when you're riding it.

I had a more detailed, much longer post made up but I lost it all when my browser crashed.

Here's the video. It's after 4 miles, so most of the top end is gone. I edited the video my way.

Photobucket blocked my video with copywrite, and I'm sure youtube would, so here ya go on imageshack.

Here is the test route


And here is my town. With a 5.5mi range, look at all the places I can go!
