X-Treme XB-500 TUNING
Submitted by erexa on Wed, 07/02/2008 - 09:43
I ordered one of these bikes to ship to Canada. 825 $ to door delivery.
Guys here is the question.
Can I change these old style SLA batteries and install let's say NiMh batteries on this bike with the same AMP and voltage to have more performance and life?
Who could know this?
I found here the batteries
And as far as I understand if I install 4 of these batteries this would give me the same 48 VOLTS but 40 AMPS instead of 48 with SLA.
And is it going to work ? What about motor? Or it is built to work with only SLA batteries?
Please I need advice.
My daily commute is 33 KM each way . Thus: one way is constant downhill and so another way is constant uphill. The ANGLE/ELEVATION is not that tough. On that 33 KM the elevation is about 120 meters. The elevation on one end is 220 meters and on another end is about 100 meters (difference is about 120 meters). In my understanding this is very very low angle hill.
I am explaining this to understand if the bike is able to get me to and from.
And if it cannot what batteries can be purchased to make it more powerful, long running and long living
Thanks for support Smiling
