Converting Suzuki Bandit

1964 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Toastednow
I am a keen biker and new to the electric scene.
I have a 2001 MK2 Suzuki Bandit 600 that I have had stored for many years that I believe would make a brilliant electric motorcycle.
I have a good working knowledge of the ICE but electric vehicles will take a little research. This is why I turn to you for help.
Where do I start?
Any recommended books or websites?
How do I calculate the size of the motor and batteries required? Which voltage do I go with?
This is a trial conversion, on a very low budget. I cannot throw a lot of cash at this. I just want to see the Bandit run again with a new purpose.
Thank you in advance.
