I've just got my EV bike to 'moving under it's own power' stage and have been for a few rides up and down my driveway... After re-fitting the bits that fell off with locking washers etc. I now have another issue; lack of power - It wont even get up a wee hill
I've since fibreglassed the copper bars and have terminal caps over the ends... So it less of an electric chair motorbike...
The motor is a D&D systems 7.5kw powered by 6x 12V gel cell batteries controlled by an AXE 7245E.
It has taken about 2-3 years to get to running stage during which time I've kept the batteries charged up. I am a little worried that they may be ruined... Or does the controller need to be programmed before it works right?
Whats the best way to trouble shoot this? where to start?
