Story to be continued ...

 

2018-12-12

New stuff will be ready soon ...

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2018-12-06

Made already some additional minor updates regarding thr rear fairing by lowering the seat position

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2018-11-19:

Rolling out with new rear fearing design but there will be follow some minor modifications on it ...

This will be near the shortest wheel base I want to drive. Here you see the shorter swing arm! The other one is 10cm (4") longer ...

 

This wheel base will be only driven if needed!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

2018-11-15

Doing some modifictions of rear tail fairing ...

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2018-11-13:

Installed the 2nd front brake disc and caliper + new steering head nut

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2018-11-07:

Got now a new blue clutch lever for GSXR 1100 W model to realise the rear brake system. Only some tiny little things are missing ...

 

Regarding my aim in future to break the 100kW power I also decided to order a second front brake disc (left side)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2018-11-02:

Also the special chain adjuster were near to ready now:

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

28.10.2018:

Get now back the swingarm @ Phase I and have to start thinking about the underbracing

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

24.10.2018:

I decided to mount a hydraulic clutch from GSXR 1100 W model to left handle bar

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

05.10.2018:

Ready for transplantation ...

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

01.10.18:

Got now the first extension for the GSXR 600 K2 swing arm.

But it will be updated again

—————————————————--———————————————————--------—————————————————---------------

27.09.2018:

Got now my new rear suspension from M2.Shocks. Special manufactured for the e-motorcycle

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

16.08.2018:

I have stripped now the GSXR by moving the 100kVA controller.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

30.07.2018:

New PVM 10-Y Design rear rim in 6x17 with Shinko 200/50-17"

2018-07-25:

A sketch regarding the possibility for a new under bracing:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2018-07-19:

So I throw out the Öhlins damper and fix the swing arm.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2018-07-18:

The story about hubmotor ends on 25th of June by short circuit of motor windings. Before I made some successful test runs on the Bamberg airport landing field:

 

Now I made the decision to continue with middrive system and starting again on the rolling chassie.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2018-06-07:

Speeddays Alkersleben

To shorten the story I prepared a small movie clip:

 

Actually the fastest hubmotor ev on 1/4 mile, as a statement from NEDRA member (Staphane Melancon) National Electric Drag Racing Association)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

12.05.2018-05-18:

Today I wanna run at GRW (German Race Wars Event) in Eisenach, Thüringen, GER.

Therefore I prepared the bike and put him on a trailer

I drove near to 200km for only one run.

Last year I need 3,5 hours, two and a half for the distance and 1h waiting time in front of the entrance because I were a crowed of people.

But this time I could drive directly to the entrance, only 4 cars in front of me.

Had a short discussion about the demo drive but everything goes very fast and uncomplicated this time.

Got the same parking area ass last year:

Therefore I prepared the bike very fast made a short walk around the area, come back, prepared myself , went to the race management center and gave them some information about the bike and a little story.

Then they said to me:" You can start!"

So I went back to the bike, switched everything on and drove to the starting area.

Here you find a little movie clip about the one and only run:

.... and my time slip result:

So I was very happy with this result because I was 8/10 faster than last year, even with this bad spinning wheel at the beginning of the start.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2018-05-07:

Update of two voltage display, one for control circuit (red color, 16,8V DC) and another one for the drive train (blue color, 117 VDC)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2018-04-22:

I made now some test drives and now it looks better!

Waiting now on first official test run @ German Race Wars in Eisenach (Thüringen) ...

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2018-04-19:

It seems that I solved now, together with Emsiso, the problem of reaching over current failure which is set via secondary current protection at 900A, peak value.
It was a parameter setting which was not described in the manual I have. So they forwarded this information today and it has something to do with my hall feedback sensor and the settings inside the controller.

One of them called „Velocity encoder factor Divisor“ which has a default setting of 4096 and is used for all other sensor types on the market which assist by Emsiso controller, except hall sensor 😞.
Had to change it to 96 (pole pairs x 6= 16x6)
And now also the sound out of the motor is much quieter!
On dusty ground I direct got spinning wheel, on dry ground not. But I think my batteries are empty now!
So I hope to make a next test run on airport by next Tuesday!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2018-04-16:

Made now three little and careful test runs at airport landing field

and the corresponding movie clip

 

But actually I have some problems during WOT acceleration because the controller switched off:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Change cam position on upper fork bridge and therefore I am able to record the Garmin GPS measured speed in parallel

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2018-03-25:

Now I changed the motor phase current to 800A and I saw/feel the hubmotor first time of spinning wheel and burning black stripes to the ground:

 

I also prepared a short introduction of the motorcycle:

 

... and made some better pictures:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2018-03-24:

Did now the first little test run @ 650A phase current (200A DC @ 98,8 V DC)

So the video is not spectacular but I can say that the acceleration from zero kph is now much better than @ 400A of Kelly controller:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yesterday I changed the parameters again to 800A phase current and I also want to change the DC current but it will go back to 200A and actually I do not know why. Maybe there is another parameter I have to activate that this problem can be solved!

Short test drive:

 

And I made a little test run @40A phase current

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2018-03-02:

After lowering I had to cut the carbon front fairing

 

But at this point I decided to left the front fender because of the tiny front tire and will bring the front as down as possible by reducing the fork suspension.
