Re: New to EV motorbikes

"Streamlining", "Proactive" and all these other overused words should be banned! It does make me laugh when they consider removing incoming phone lines to try and make thing easier, When all it does it cause havoc. I shall see how I get on.

Re: New to EV motorbikes

I truly think its all down to the "person" you get at the DVLA head office or local office. My local office is Nottingham, I've never used them, But I will be soon!.

Re: New to EV motorbikes

I have heard of these types of dramas with dvla from EVcar builders. I just dont understand how they can issue a new V5 for a straight ICE swap, But mess up so much with an EV. I think its down to the simpletons they employ for the job. I have all the original running gear, Frame, Wheels, Forks, Swi...

Re: New to EV motorbikes

I used to have an RD50MX field bike years back. Yes light is the best route, With the Agni would I need a gearbox or just go for a big rear sprocket? I'm going to make a card mockup of the Agni this week to look at instillation postions etc. I'm hoping to do most of the fabrication work myself, Inv...

Re: New to EV motorbikes

Glad to help. As you probably already know, light is good on a motorcycle. I'm in the process of rebuilding (very slowly) my smaller electric motorcycle project (it's based on an old RD50MX), taking out the heavy Mars motor (it weighs around 15kg) and replacing it with a much smaller (around 2.5kg!...

Re: New to EV motorbikes

Thanks Jeremy,

Thats a huge help in deciding the route to take, and 11kg is light!. I guess that gives me more room for batterys!.

Re: New to EV motorbikes

Should be a nice project, but I'm not sure that a motor like that is a particularly good choice, as it's big and heavy for the power it can deliver. 62lb is a very big lump of a motor for a motorcycle, especially when something like an Agni 95-R will give you 16kW continuous (about (21hp) and 30kW ...

New to EV motorbikes

Hi, I've decided after much contemplation to build an EV motorbike. My base will be a Honda Fireblade 98 model. I have fully stripped the ICE gear off it, Soon to go on "that site" for funds!. I'm looking for the weight to be as close to the original as I can, range of 50 miles max and a t...
