Hey Electric Stinger, Dogman and all who may help,
Think I just blew my controller too... You guys have seen my setup on the post "New 48Volt 20Amp Ping with pics... Since moving to the Ping, I'm guessing I've logged 300 - 400 Miles. Today is a really nice day for Missouri this time of year. Got out the WE BL36 and took it to work and back... Put about 5 miles on the bike coming back home with a fully charged Ping. Decided to pass up my house and run to the post office. A mile from home, it Blew!!!! Started to make a little grinding noise at the front wheel. I looked at the Speedo and was going 29 mph on level ground. All of a sudden, no power??? The throttle lights up, both red and green but nothing going on at the wheel??? Came home, switched out the ping and put the stock charged 36 volt SLAs - and pleanty of light at the throttle but nothing to the wheel. Now this is a brushless setup so I'm hoping its not the motor...
About the controller - it is the stock WE BL36 with the higher rated caps inside.... worked great with the added power until today... I guess its not the throttle but reading Stinger's problem sounds like you guys would suggest its the controller... I was going to go with a new stock WE controller but not sure.... I'm not that skilled with electrics but did figure out how to connect the ping... The stock throttle wiring to the controller has four wires to the connector (red, white, black and purple)... I'd like to get something that would not be too complicated to hook up.
So, do you think its the controller? How hard would it be to change to ecrazyman's 48 or 72 volt controller? I know if I buy the WE stock one, its just going to be connect the existing plugs...
Please advise your thoughts.... I'm anxious to get it fixed and back on the road... too much fun!!!
