    That's what FTH Power said..Quote from my email "Your battery has a data line that communicates with your bike’s control board. Unfortunately the information on the data line is not available from the original manufacturer. And we will not be able to obtain a part needed for repairs. At this...

    48/57 volt Battery failing or not ? need HELP

    I considered that for sure, about 3 weeks ago I made a cardboard cutout of the dimensions and resting on the down tube with the bottle screws removed and weld nuts filed off (not yet)it will fit with 1/4" to spare under the top tube and the reviews are good too..The weight has now shifted back...

    48/57 volt Battery failing or not ? need HELP

    I have to reply to the off subject "EBR sure didn't like it." I'm now 71, I road raced in the 60s-70s when I worked as a mechanic in a bike shop and later raced mountain bikes too. I found that article in a search before I drove 2.5hrs to buy this $2800 bike from a fat guy in Miami only 6mos old...

    48/57 volt Battery failing or not ? need HELP

    I spoke to John Nethers on the phone last night .All he wanted was a pic of the label on my charger.Seeing that said he can rebuild my battery with Samsung 35E S14 20A and my existing charger will work with it...Because the LiFE have a higher voltage he needs fewer of them so the battery will be...

    48/57 volt Battery failing or not ? need HELP

    This battery pack from ebay is almost exactly the same size as the one in my plastic case. Really 1/4" and 1/8" smaller in two dimensions..amazing It's a 20Ah where mine is a 12Ah and I think mine is a 16S where this is 14S..not sure if that matters. It comes with the charger.. Pros/Cons ? will...

    Yes, 40F is winter Cape Canaveral.Thanks for considering that. Riding the last 2 days we dress like we're going skiing. We keep our batteries inside though at 75F and I think we're back before the cold soaks in but I did loose one more mile yesterday down to 9.5 so I could be wrong there. When...

    48/57 volt Battery failing or not ? need HELP

    "bricked" I have a new word. With all I put you through here is it your opinion I should just have this battery rebuilt? I'm not getting into that but on that note FTH Power replied to my email : "Your battery has a data line that communicates with your bike’s control board. Unfortunately the...

    48/57 volt Battery failing or not ? need HELP

    One more question here so they aren't all bunched together in #14 I also watched this youtube says I can reset the BMS by charging through the out port or by disconnecting the Balance Connector and plug the charger in and reconnect the connector while the charger is running. Hmmm? I'm asking you...

    48/57 volt Battery failing or not ? need HELP

    The bike restarts every time I turn the key off and back on and can even help me get home as long as I pedal and bump the throttle easy .. Also the voltage drop was my very first thought and why I put wires on the blades of the battery connector when I slid it together to my meter. Under full...

    Desparately in need of Prodecotech parts!

    I have a 48v outlaw and was thinking I might need a 48v Controller because my LiFEPO4 battery charges to nearly 58v but the bike shuts down with 52v left in the battery. I did a balance test ride starting with 3.6v on all 16 pins of the balance connector..( one was 3.59) had 57.6v total The bike...

    48/57 volt Battery failing or not ? need HELP

    From my first post remembering how a failing car battery can show 12.5v and as soon as you hit it with the starter 200amps it drops to 8-9v my first thought was a load test, I thought the volts dropped below a threshold that makes it shut down but not at 48v. "Having no load tester to see if...

    48/57 volt Battery failing or not ? need HELP

    After reading "I could still have a failing pack" makes me think now I want to test all the volts after it shuts down to see if they're even. Make sense? Also "You've never seen a BMS go bad on an original battery." Hmmm..Could this shut down @52v be the controller? Just so happens the only...
