Daymak Enduro not going past 20km/h

Hi,

My Daymak Enduro supposedly goes max 32km/h. However, even with a full charge, it doesn't ever exceed about 19km/h. I weigh 190lbs, so I can't imagine that it's due to my weight. Any ideas why it might be so slow? The batteries charge to about 13.3v on full.

Thank,s

Vince

is there a doo-hickey attached to your grey wires on your controller? my daymak had the same thing i disconnected to little dial attached to the grey wires on my controller and i was doing 35 right away.

HOLY COW!!! Thank you!!! Sure enough, there's a little 10k capacitor on the gray wire. I took it off, and PRESTO!!! 32km/h. Now why in the h*ll would it be there, and why the h*ll wouldn't the instruction manual mention it? I was ready to get rid of this bike. I thought it was defective, or just chalked up to poor quality.

The device shown, which you removed, is NOT a "Capacitor". It is a 10,000 ohm potentiometer, or adjustable resistor. It is very likely that you could put it back, and adjust speed by turning the adjusting screw on the top of it. -Enjoy, and be careful!-Bob Curry

Ah - good to have a correction. Thanks.

But it still begs the question: Why put this somewhere where nobody would ever find it. That, and why set it at some stupid low speed from the factory without so much as a peep in the instruction manual about it?

Re: Daymak Enduro not going past 20km/h

Its a regulation doohickey. "ebikes" are restricted by law to a top speed of 20 mph (32.18kph) in most places. If one came out of the box a lil too zippy, they could "tune it down" with that part. Some places stipulate "up to 20mph, unassisted (like those pedals would help) on level ground with a rider of a weight of 170 pounds. Some dealers of some brands and or locations might be legally bound to get you to sign a waiver before releasing that info to the buyer, as its a regulatory adjustment.

I have no problem with them limiting the bike to the 20mph allowable limit, but this one was set to 11mph (19kmh)!! Ridiculous.
