60 volt controller & motor

Hi to everyone, I'm working on upgrading an electric scooter and wanted to know if anyone has a 1500w 60v controller and a matching motor. Or know where to get one that won't ask questions when it pertains to shipping to Canada and our laws about power ratings. The rear rim it has to fit is 16" diameter. The white one is the one I need the parts for.

Ordering Components

After talking to a fella at EV works about various components I have settled on parts for my bike.

Motor: This is the less complex and slightly more powerful out of the two 48V motors.

Batteries: At the moment I'm getting 11 of these cells and will update later to 16 so I get the full 48V system. These will take about 6 weeks to ship so lots of time to draw up some concepts for attaching them.

Controller: This one gives the best acceleration for my price range.

Contactor: Good economical option.

Charger: KP3612EL is not currently stocked so will have to wait for that. The charger will be the only component I will need to replace when changing up to 48V.

Battery Management System: Another component I need to wait for. EV works are developing a new, more compact BMS which should be ready in a couple of weeks.

Braided Cell Interconnectors:


That's all I'm ordering at the moment and these parts, including shipping from Australia to NZ, should cost about NZ$3800 (US$2800). I'll be getting other things like DC-DC converter, gauges, power cable and lugs from an electronics store in NZ once the bike starts to take shape.
