No problems with overheating unless I’m spanking a Harley two or three lights in a row for this I will be getting the hub heat sink and ferrofluid to carry the stator heat to the hub shell. If you just want to cruise at 50 and maybe have a top speed of 65ish you don’t really need this heavy motor. I bet you could run the lighter mxus 3000. I sort of feel like I overdid it with this build.Tony what's your max motor speed with your current setup? Any issues with overheating at 50mph cruise?
Yea 35-40 is the norm for me as well. But of course once you leave town/civilization all the bicycle friendly roads have 45-55mph speed limits and staying in that range is preferable for safety. Having range and especially charge speed as a major issue I have slowed down a lot. Every long ride on an electric requires planning. That’s the only part about it I do not like.Thanks Tony you know I really prefer the hub setups on bicycle frames/pedals. 2 and 3 kw is where I'm working at the moment and high speed is only a curiosity with all my builds; they seldom are run much over fifty and only for short pulls. Thirty five to forty is the norm when I'm in a hurry lol, gas or electric oh wait max on any of my electrics is only thirty on one kw, so there's that!.
Biknut jewelry, vacations etc. (fill in the blank) are often used as ploys to purchase our toys. Then there's the full Monte grovel....I'm planning to call the Texas DPS, Motorcycle Safety Department to see about if it's possible to legalize a Sur Ron, but I need to wait until Buffy's not around to have that conversation. If there's any way to do it, I'll be owning one by summer time.
I've heard rumors that there's a new model coming out at the end of February. Next in the evolutionary line that's gone from Firefly, to Light Bee, may be the Mad Bee.
