Motor and controller as setup can increase to ” 55.5 volts nominal, 61.5 volts fully charged ”
I tried numerous times to attempt to “TOP OUT” the MAX Speed of the Trike, but I was never able. I did, however, get to a Speed of “48Kph” before I had to let off the throttle and slam on the brakes due to reaching the end of the pathway I was on.
Due to an old roommate that we evicted the batteries no longer exist as they were left in my shed outside during the entire winter season. Thanks to this dumbass move the batteries are garbage as they will no longer charge, let alone even hold a charge.
This is now going to cost me approximately $1,200.00 Canadian to replace. My disabilities make the batteries a necessity otherwise my weak legs wouldn’t allow me to go up any larger hills, let alone the Mountains of BC/Alberta.
Trike Tool Kit(s):
For these I went right to the Manufacturer of my Trike so that I know I have the right tools. The first set is a Mini ToolKit and the second set is a 3-way tool package. This should keep me going in relation to repairs to the Trike frame, etc.
