2000+W E-BIKE CONVERSION
NEWS!! Our latest high power
2000 watt kit comes with a new OzEbikes water proof 40A BLUETOOTH speed
controller! This controller is small and robust, much smaller than the old
brick style pre-programmed units. Programming is via smart phone, this allows
you to set your cut-off voltage easily for various 36-48v battery packs and
also adjust power levels for extended range when you don’t need the full
capability of 2+Kw. You can run a 36v pack, our 44.4v LiPO packs, or our 48v
LiIon packs without issue, all that is required is the cut off voltage reset.
Plugs!! We are now running a compact waterproof motor connector plug that
houses both the main power phase wiring as well as the hall sensor wiring, this
has added to the price but the kit is now much more waterproof and less chance
of damaging the fine sensor wiring.
new motor design with completely redesigned winding layout and much larger
diameter rotor has resulted in a unit that can handle up to 3000 watts (subject to ambient temp and load) and
produces more torque at less amp draw!
Our test figures using
our 44.4v (50v fully charged) lithium polymer batteries show 1960 watts max
load with 20% more torque than the old Headline motor produced at 2500 watts!
New gearbox design with Nylon planetary gears reduces noise to a new low, very
quiet running system!
Our kit comes
with everything you need to convert a regular Diamond framed bike to electric
power. We use a custom 3 phase brushless in-runner motor with external sensored
speed controller, designed to run on Lithium battery packs. The motor runs
through a sealed planetary gearbox. The output shaft runs a standard pitch
sprocket that will take 8-9spd chains, and features a freewheel sprag clutch
built in, this allows the motor to drive the bikes gear system without you
pedalling, or sit idle with no load on the gear system while you pedal.
combination of high torque 3 phase brushless motor, planetary reduction
gearbox, and the direct drive through the bikes own gear system results in a
bicycle that is very versatile and has very hi torque, able to climb steep
hills through the low gears or cruise along
on the flats at a rapid pace with only light pedal input! Overall power
is many times more than any hub motor setup can produce, and that power runs
through your gears, unlike a hub motor that has a single geared speed.
New 3Kw hi torque motor with black ISIS crank set,
40A controller and new LED throttle.
crank-set is the top model ISIS DRIVE
available and is a double chain wheel plus drive sprocket for the motor. The
outer sprocket is spaced further than a regular crank set and runs the drive
chain from the motor. The second and third sprockets are the main gear
sprockets and carry your existing main chain to the back gear cluster. Our
outer and inner sprockets are the more expensive heat treated alloy, saving
almost 500g in weight over the regular steel crank sets.
So what you end
up with is 2 main sprockets at the front much like your original gear system,
your derailers will operate all the gears as normal, the only difference is the
front gears will only change between 2 sprockets, small and large. Our cranks feature a freewheel sprag clutch
as well, this allows you to pedal the bike as a regular bike without any
interference from the motor, or let the motor run without having to pedal.
NOTE: Our standard 2000W Crankset is built with 44T chain
wheels for both motor and main drive, this gives us the best ratio between the
motor and the cranks for a good balance between torque and speed, this setup
can reach 60+kmh on the flat when fitted to a regular 26” mountain bike, a
hybrid or flat bar road bike will usually be faster. My 26” test bike has done
64kmh into a strong headwind running the 14/44 ratio. We can also build custom
cranks with various combinations of chainwheel.
Note: Buying a kit with a single sprocket for the front
really limits your climbing ability as you have no small sprocket to drop down
to when climbing very steep hills. This is why we don’t bother to offer a basic
crank set that other sellers include as standard.
MOTOR DRIVE SPROCKET
We supply a new
custom made 14 tooth sprocket on this motor, this is a new freewheel with
stronger pawl mechanism forged in chromalloy and with the screw on cover spot
welded to ensure it cannot unscrew. 14T is a good balance between speed and
torque, and with the rear gearing you get the best of both worlds.
MOTOR MOUNT & BOTTOM BRACKET
We supply a
special triple bearing sealed cartridge bottom bracket with an extended axle so
that your left pedal clears the back of the motor housing. The bottom bracket
is standard English fitment and is adjustable 68-82mm long via a new long left
hand cone to support the motor mounting plate. It will fit all older bikes with
an English BB and many newer bikes that have an external bottom bracket that
screws into the frame, 68-82mm is easily covered. We also have custom bottom brackets with 170
and 190mm long axles that are suitable for most Downhill frames and even
FatBike frames which have very wide 120mm BB’s! The motor mount for the 2000W
kit is a new design that hangs off the bottom bracket and helps to reduce the
issue of mount and frame flex from the high torque our motors produce. It also
allows fitment to many suspension bikes and bikes with odd shaped frame tubes
that would normally not accept the alloy clamp mount. The chain tensioner is a
new design with a coil spring that is easier to install and adjust the chain
NOTE: We assemble all motor mounts before shipping, when you are ordering
from us you will be asked questions about the width of your bikes BB frame
tube, and for photos of your bike so we can make sure the motor assembly is a
drop in fit. There are a couple of hours of work involved in setting up each
kit but I feel this is necessary in order to offer the customer a tailor made
conversion that requires minimal work to install.
BLUETOOTH SPEED CONTROLLER
controller supplied is our OzEbikes sensored brushless 40A BlueTooth
controller rated at 40A continuous with an 80A burst rating. This new controller
is waterproof and can be set for voltage cut off inside. It has no power ramp
down as your batteries get low like some controllers; it will provide full
power right up to cut off. We recommend the cut off be set to 43v minimum with
12s lipo, this helps to protect our battery packs while still allowing you to
use 85% of available capacity. It is very important you do not drain your
lithium batteries too low, you can damage the cells, as soon as you hit cut off
the first time you should stop using the motor.
Again we do the hard work, your Controller comes pre-wired with new
WATERPROOF connector for motor and an XT90-s Anti-Spark plug for battery
connection, you will receive a series harness for your batteries if you are
ordering batteries with the kit. All unused connections are insulated out of
the way, connection is simple. We suggest using one bolt to one of the drink
bottle mounts on your frame with a tie strap at the other end of the
controller. We remove unnecessary plugs and use quality silicon wire for the main power input.
We supply a YBN
Heavy duty MACK Half Link chain for your motor to crank drive, these
chains are very strong and long lasting, the half link allows more accurate
adjustment of chain slack and is much stronger than the best conventional chain
available. Our chain is the compact 8spd 3/32 size not the wide heavy 1/8th
The throttle is thumb operated and will work
with your existing grips. All the wiring is pre terminated and simply plugs
together. There is a key switch so that you can switch the system off and an
LED readout showing battery voltage. This new throttle makes it easy to know
where you batteries are at, once your batteries drop to 43-44v under load you
should stop using them and swap over or recharge. Pushing them lower in voltage
risks damaging cells.
NOTE: Most electric throttle housings interfere with Shimano gear levers, we
recommend swapping your shifters to our Sunrace rapid fire as both levers are
at the back, we have 6, 7, 8 and 9spd available. If you have SRAM shifters you
are usually good to go, all that is needed is to trim the raised section of
plastic off the top of the large lever so it better clears the throttle casing.
With 44.4v 12Ah battery packs the 2000W bike below has reached 64kmh on
the flat with a 100kg rider! Due to the high torque and power full throttle is
not needed as much with this setup, I have calculated that riding around
25-30kmh average speed with pedalling our 12Ah battery set will get 35km range,
maybe even more, its very hard to predict due to rider style and terrain, wind
TEST RIDE DATA
Our 2000w test bike, full throttle settled power
recorded on the Batteryman meter is 1960 watts when running our 16Ah 12c 44.4v
lithium polymer batteries. One of my harder tests is a 16km run that has long
steep climbs in both directions, I do this ride using the motor almost the
entire time, usually at full throttle with light pedalling. With the new setup
I managed 30mins and 7500mah consumed from the battery packs, a very impressive
real world result.
shows our optional LUNA frame bag fitted up, this bag will carry up to four
12Ah Lithium Polymer battery packs, and will easily carry our 48v 16Ah pack as
well as water bottle and other things, it’s the best value bag on the market
and gives great balance to the bike as well as looking good. You can find the
bags on our bag page.
Our new LiIon NMC 48v 16Ah battery pack is
made for this kit! With a 40A constant BMS built in, the new battery offers a
compact hi capacity solution that will actually handle the power of our mid
drive kit. Of course you can still damage a battery, running the bike at full
power ouput constantly will risk tripping the BMS and in severe cases you could
burn out the output stage of the BMS. There is very little chance of this
happening, but we like to be informative and have seen users do all sorts of
crazy things with batteries over the years!
You can also use Lithium Polymer battery packs
similar to what the use in large drones and UAV. You might already have our old
setup for these. Two 6 cell batteries are connected in series for 44.4v
nominal, 50v fully charged. We are happy to source replacement batteries for
those who have this setup and the charger/s to suit, but we wont be selling
them as a general stock item anymore as we are invested in the new technology
of our NMC LiIon battery packs.
Our bikes will
climb steep fire trails on their own in low gear, or you can power up a trail
by pedalling and running at full electric power, once you have experienced a
high power Electric Assist setup like this you will never go back to riding off
road without it! Our system will peak at around 2000 input watts on 44.4v
batteries, we have measured this in real time with our E-meter equipment,
unlike other sellers we deal in electronics daily and have an extensive
workshop for testing and fabrication.
freewheel clutches in our cranks and motor drive are good quality and made in
Taiwan, don’t be scared off by talk that these clutches fail quickly, my own
has been running for over 2 years regularly, and these clutches stand up to the
torque of the 2000W system without trouble. In the event you manage to wear or
break one of the free wheels they are available as spare parts for an enormous
$33.00 each! J
