Hi guys, I have a Michael Blast outsider ebike, I bought it in September 2020 and I am still enjoying using it. The only thing is that I had to change the motor, as a very bad noise was coming from it. I bought it with a conversion, battery 48v 14.5ah, but with 36v 350W motor. But now I decided to upgrade the motor buying the 48v 500W one, thinking that it was going to be faster, or at least at the same speed (with 36v motor, speed using throttle was 45km/h), but unfortunately the max speed with this more powerful motor is only 35km/h.
I changed the speed limit to 50km, wheel size as well from the speedometer, but nothing has changed.. any thoughts on how to increase speed? Motor is bafang mg06 48v 500Wattt....thanks

I can't help you with your issue - just to say that I have the 750w motor (48v 14.5 Ah battery ) and my top speed is 33km.

It is the controller that is limiting you. But on the upside it prevents the motor from burning up.
