Re: New forum area for the E Max riders

Ive seen it (and ridden it) here in Australia. (the 90S version anyway).
The lead versions still use silicon batteries, though im lead to believe of a different brand.
Their 42AH instead of the two strings of 20AH which we all hated so much.
The dash is digital. The "fuel guage" is still just a volt meter"
The speedo take its reading off the rear wheel based on what rpm the controller reports. In theory if you change the rear wheel size you can just reprograme it.

I dont know about top speed as the one i rode was still limited to 45kmh.

The batteries didnt appear to have any BMS or battery balancing.

Re: New forum area for the E Max riders

A few months ago I went to the new E-Max website and found a US distributor. I emailed the guy and never got a reply. The website now has no US distributor listed at all. I have that US website linked at home.

Re: New forum area for the E Max riders

Many of us have put too much work getting our old e-max's to a level of respectable performance and reliability to considering buying anything new for quite some time.

I will be doing 16 cell LiFePO4 (with battery mangement) modification on one of mine soon. Hopefully I'll have something to report soon.

With long-term ownership in mind, I'm looking for a few key spare parts - a controller maybe a rear rim and hub motor. Any leads?

Re: New forum area for the E Max riders

Here is that link to the supposed new E-Max USA gig.

I agree with PJD however. There are a bunch of us who have put a lion's share of labor into making our e-max's (or e-max clones) run well and that is what I expect our discussion should be here.

For any newcomers, when old e-max closed down, the Chinese manufacturer Topmotorx continued to produce the models and a model with the same body as the XM-2000 was available marketed by the Kasea company: Kasea ZE-2000. This bike has identical internal guts to the original e-max. Starting in August of 2007, another U.S. distributor, E-Moto, has offered the full line of e-max clones from Topmotorx including my model, the Classic.

The nice thing about these models is that they are easily modded and long-time EV'rs like PJD and kmulle have done an excellent job of document these upgrades and mods both here in our resource section and on separate web pages (see kmullee's 'upgrades' page).

PJD, I have had success obtaining parts from E-Moto. The owner, Casey Binz, has been hard to get a hold of lately but was very responsive back in the fall.

Who else is rocking one (or more) of the e-max or e-max clones out there?

If needed,I would like to provide controller/motor for old E-max replacement. We have similar style,but much more high efficiency motor and reliable controller.DSC09114.jpg
