Im so angry, because Ive just blown another controller on one of my bikes. They are so easily frazzled - all I did was disconnect one of the brakes and connect the wires so that the break cut out wouldnt be active. Goodness knows why that affected it.
Anyway last time this happened I just stripped out all the wires and connected the battery into the motor, with one of the wires running up to a push button on the handlebars. It was great - never went so well. Jerky when u start tho!
However having all 30amps running up thro a push button meant that one day the button unexpectedly welded shut and I went into the back of a lorry.
This time I would like to find a simple foot switch to go inbetween the battery to motor set up. Are there any simple variable resistor type switches that would allow me to get a graduated start without me having to delve into the merky world of unstable controllers?
