Hello,
I have a scooter with a 60v 2000w Teking controller i bought from TNC Scooters. I have 5 12v 12ah greensaver silicone batteries. I just burned out 2 currie motors. The 650w 24v burned out in one minute. The 900w 24v burned out in about 5 miles. What DC brushed motors can take this kind of extreme power. I think this controller says 60-100 amps. I see this motor, but its only rated for 1000w. Do i need to run two motors to run this or can i limit the power going in to the controller? I'd like maby half of the amperage. Any 60v 48v 72v brushed motor recomendations appriciated Thanks!

You can limit the current by limiting the voltage.
If you had only used 2 or even 3 batteries you would have been ok!

Any 24v motor will burn out at 60v, its not the controller!

Well i had great luck running the 24v 900v motor at 48v with 1200w controller. The motor also ran great for an extended period at 60v on my test bench, but just not under a load when i installed it. I also heard these silicone batteries have a much faster discharge rate. So what brushed motor should i look for to handle 2000w 60v? Also is their any way to keep the 60v but just limit the amperage coming from the batteries to the controller. I would like to know if i can use a dial like a big potentiometer to control power flow. I know this is the controllers job but the controller i have is too high amperage.
