Well done! Very smooth and quiet.
Did you end up sealing the battery pack with silicone or something?

You must be stoked :)
Yes very happy with the way it all went except that I need to replace one of the cell groups so once I’ve got the replacement cells I’ll rebuild the pack (again!) with silicone and thread lock. Hopefully for the last time ... until I upgrade :D

Hoping to get everything ready for brake testing and engineering in January, then I can sell my petrol scooter!

After the last lot of testing there was a fair bit of work to do getting ready for brake testing and inspection. Replace dead battery cells, wire in the emergency cutoff switch, replace oil in forks and add spacers, etc so after all that the bike pretty much looks the same but a lot has happened! Last Thursday took the bike out to the drag strip at Eastern Creek where an engineer put some instrumentation on the bike and did a series of brake tests. Everything went well so I just need to provide some documentation on the conversion and get it officially weighed then it should be good to get certified. Looking forward to getting it on the road so I can play around with the speed controller settings to get it dialled in.
