CBR 600 F3 RUNS, DRIVES AND REGISTERED!
I was able to get to the registry of motor vehicles yesterday, and successfully registered my converted Honda CBR. The form has a box to check if the vehicle is electric, so I checked the box, and left the engine information blank. (# of cyliders, engine size). When she got to the # of cylinder part of the form, she asked, " 2 cylinders? 4 cylinders?" I answered," Actually I converted it to battery electric, so it has NO cylinders". She said, "that's great". And she started asking questions like, "how heavy is the battery? How long will it go?". Then she said, "who says you can't drive something without putting gas in the tank?". She kept trying to enter the number of cylinders as "zero", and said, "the computer won't let me enter zero!" So she entered one. She handed me my plates and sent me on my way.
SO I RODE IT TO WORK TODAY! :D
I am currently running at 48 volts, 100ah. It's the only batteries I had that were any good.
45 MPH top speed flat ground. I rode it 16 miles and only used 30% of the pack. I'm thinking 35-40 mile range will be no problem.
So after $3000+ dollars, 4 months, 200 hours, I have an electric motorcycle that should do just about everything a new scooter will do, and eventually (at 72 Volts) everything the Vetrix will do. Plus I have the benefit of having a sport bike that the unkowing thinks is ICE!
THANKS AGAIN TO ALL ON THIS FORUM FOR ALL YOUR HELP AND SUPPORT! I will try and return the same.

Congradulations!!! Welcome to the guild of EV motorcycle builders! And, uh, yeah, my Lectra is eternally in an advanced state of incompletion so I suppose "constant improvement" is a better way of putting it.

So does that one cylinder run on air superheated by a plasma arc, something akin to a coilgun, or an eddy current based "washer launcher" type system? :P
