Speeding up Das Kit motor on Magnum Metro+

Hi All,

I have a Magnum Metro+ that has been a good commuter bike. It only goes 25 mph, and I'd really like the additional 3+ mph, if possible.

Anyone know of a way to hot-up the Das Kit motor for a bit more top end?

Many thanks in advance!

Is it electronically limited to 25mph? If not, 52V battery will increase the top speed.

I believe Magnum has Reention Dorado 505mm battery.

Here are some options.

so is it possible to increase mph by putting a 1000 watt battery on the metro?

Okay, initially I was confused why you let an empty reply, but I'm guessing this is the part you wanted to respond.
You combined my response and your response, that's why it didn't show.

Anyways,

There's no such thing as 1000W battery. Did you mean 1000Wh battery?
Not all 52V battery are 1000Wh, even if it's 400Wh, it has no effect on top speed, as long as the voltage is the same.
(yes, it all depends on other factors like BMS and drain rate as well)

What determines top speed is the voltage, so by going 52V battery, you will increase 2 or 3 mph.
However, if it's electronically restricted by the display, it won't go any faster than 25mph.

You controller will be fine, since 48V controller can generally be able to handle 52V just fine.

yes i meant 1000wh. is aliexpress a trustworthy site?
I haven't had a problem with AliExpress.

They usually take a long time to arrive (sometimes up to 3 months!) but when it didn't arrive, AliExpress has always been good with the refund and stuff.
I do believe that some people here on EBR said that one of their disputes didn't go well with AliExpress though.

AliExpress (Alibaba) is a multi-billion dollar corporation just like Amazon.

You can find tons of reviews everywhere, including YouTube.
