I have been looking through this forum as I am am about to convert a motocross bike to electric and thought I would post in the hope that someone could help me out. I have a fairly good grasp of basic electronics as I used to build fighting robots but am totally confused by the contradictory information I am finding relating to the two motors I am trying to decide between.
The two motors are the Etek (inc Etek-R or other versions) and the perm PMG 132. From what I can see both produce around 15Hp at 48V and i have read that both can handle 72V. Surely this means they are pretty much the same? However popular opinion appears to be that the perm is far more powerful. I'm confused!!!!!
In case it makes a difference I have been thinking of using as many Thunder Sky lithium cells as I can fit in the frame and the most powerful speedo I can afford/build.
Thanks in advance,
