Performance Updates

As you could see in the last post the bike is basically complete, functionally and cosmetically.  However the performance was not what I really wanted or expected.

Well I have been working with Kelly Controllers and my friend Mark and we think we have cracked it.  Kelly supplied us with a test KHB Controller with new firmware for low inductance and high pole count motors.  The controller has a peak motor amps of 700 compared to 500 for the previous and with the new design the continuous is 350 compared to 250.  This is theoretically 24Nm of extra torque continuous and 48Nm extra peak that is a LOT.

After spending a lot of time over the week changing settings confirm we had it all right, rigging up some new meters we took it for a few very short test rides.

This bike now HAULS A**.
