Just a bit of info for anyone who's thinking about a 5 series. There's a lot of info on the net, some of which is contradictory, so maybe this will help.
I started off with a Clyte 409 kit running on a 4820 controller and a Crystalyte Lithium 38v 9A battery. Despite all the talk of torque it's prettty anaemic in Malta which is all hills. I was looking for a motorbike substitute and this wasn't it.
