Suzuk-E – Suzuki Electric Bike Hack

at 5:55 am. Filed under Complex Hacks, DIY Hacks, Electronic Hacks, Insane Equipment


I can’t wait to see some video of this electric bike conversion in action. TheWorkshop.ca has taken an old Suzuki dirt bike and hacked in a powerful electric motor. This isn’t a simple rip and bolt project that we have seen others perform, there was lots of machining and fabrication needed to get it to this stage. An open source motor controller was used which earns it a big bonus as far as DIY goes. 🙂  I think it will prove to be quite a fast machine.

Added video that is now available (thanks Frank).

"The battery, controller, motor and PC are finally all wired properly and I can slam the juice to the motor and rip through all 6 gears up & down without a clutch by just easing the throttle between transitions. There are some concerns about the over-all slop in the total drive-train (motor shaft to rear wheel), and the horrendous volume of the sound screaming off this set-up that will hopefully be addressed in the next installment. Similarly the next steps are to install a speedometer onto the rear wheel, a tach onto the motor shaft and see how close the spread sheet above is to the measured No-Load reality."
