    Hs 142F rpm

    I have a 142 and the cdi went dead. Ordered one from gas bike, would not rev and no power. Decided it was rev limited, ordered one from KC Vale, sq body like the one that went dead. The one gas bike sent was round body plug on the outside. Sq body plug is on the inside, and not rev limited.

    Help..creating ebike from an e scooter

    Hey CB2, the scooter is a hub brushless. The brushed motor I mentioned is off a Razor mx500. It's a Unite motor. My goof. And if I ever entertain the $$$ for lipo's, it'll be with the SBP mid drive set up. The scoot is not worth it. The scooter needs a 212 engine!!!
