Battery Swap

Did some work today. All batteries and the battery frame are out of the bike.

I also mocked up the newer modules in the frame. There are a few small issues with the old frame (wateproofing and some screws pointing into cells!) but otherwise all good, so I am going to extend the old frame upwards and build a new lid etc.

The old cells are all being balanced, ready to go in the Vectrix VX-1.

Yamaha Fazer Electric conversion

Hi all.

Just some details of my FZS600. I bought it pre-converted, so I did not build myself, but I have already started a few modifications.

The specs are (currently):

Enertrac 602 hub motor

Kelly KLS 8080i 400A peak controller

On board 4KW fast charge (Huwaei supplies)

13 Leaf modules (60ah capacity, drained to 45ah), they seem to only have 45 ah max cap when charged to 4.15 volts, so I assume they are quite old.

I am in the process of swapping out the 13 leaf modules for 7 40KWH leaf modules (newer gen). This will bump the system voltage up 8v or so, which should give a few more MPH top speed, whilst also nearly doubling the range!

The old leaf cells will be paired up with 6 more “24kwh pack” modules to then go in my vectrix VX-1 (which I will post about shortly)

Some pics of the build:
