    This isn’t what we came here for!!

    We want to know how to get the bike pass its maximum set speed limit.!!!
    Without changing the electric motor.
    Is there any way to trick the electric motor into thinking it’s not going as fast so we can go faster without reaching its programmed max speed…

  2. Paco Mariano Ortiz March 9, 2021 @ 10:09 pm

    wider tyres means go slower?

  3. What about replacing the gearbox with T28 instead of T38?

    Craziest video I ever seen

  18. Your video inspired me check out my bike https://youtu.be/wgjXcUCun7o

    I have found with a couple of controllers that with the battery pack you can add one more cell in series any more the overvolt protection kicks in and it won’t work.
    Thought I had stuffed it first time.

  20. Enjoy you

  21. Kelly Controllers have an async port that gives you access to settings, including power sent to the motor.

  22. What controllers do you suggest for a ebike to go faster besides the batteries

  23. Thanks for the info

  24. How fast would a 1500 watt brushless motor run with a 60 volt battery

  25. I thought that most e-bikes top end speed is locked in at the controller. While most of these tips will allow for faster acceleration they will not change your top speed because the controller is programed to cut off a given speed.

  26. Also other good things to check is :
    make sure you keep your chain well lubed and clean and make sure your chain is not too tight it should have at least 10 mm Slack.

    Also check for bearing wear on your wheels, motor and any transfer Drive equipment.

    Also check electrical connections are tight and secure and do not have any corrosion. To ensure solid connections you can get a spray that you would spray on electrical connections and anywhere you want to stop water ingression.
    which are known as corrosion inhibitor sprays and and electrical contact cleaner. which is basically brake cleaner.

    Any electronic contacts that are exposed to the elements like earth cables should be covered lightly with Vaseline to prevent corrosion or dirt ingression.

  27. Do i raise or lower my wheel size to make my e bike go faster?

  28. Liked the tips buddy, cheers

  29. I got a 1000v motor

  30. Daniel Sasseville March 9, 2021 @ 10:45 pm

  31. HudsonValleyRailfan Productions March 9, 2021 @ 10:47 pm

    mine top speed is 30 mph. i want to make it go to 50 so I can ride it on the highways. i have one of the swagtron ones with the big tires

  32. Trevell Bentley March 9, 2021 @ 10:48 pm

    We need more speed

  33. What does UBE stand for and do?

  34. Charlie Mikolcevic March 9, 2021 @ 10:51 pm

    Great tips for extracting what capabilities are already there in your bike.

  35. Upping your battery from 36V to 48V if your controller can take it , but what about the motor ? How do you know it will be able to take it ? What if you dont know the specs of your Chinese made ebike ?

  36. Ninja 80 G Shock Junkie March 9, 2021 @ 10:52 pm

    Hey what’s up man group video thanks for the tips just bought me a cheetah e bike it has other futures of the mile per hour the highest is 99 how do I disconnect that and do I buy a high voltage battery or motor because I’m trying to hit high 30s right now Im hitting 28 it looks like a Harley I’m just trying to make it go faster thank you sir

  37. Shainexxxse Scrimshaw March 9, 2021 @ 10:53 pm

    Just get a road bike, it’ll go faster than that easily

  39. Hey. I’m looking for the battery for my BH EMotion Neo City. Do you happen to know who has an extra one? Thanks.

  40. I hate speed

  41. Timothy Maddox March 9, 2021 @ 10:58 pm

    Thanks very helpful & be safe

  42. Melvin Belcher March 9, 2021 @ 10:58 pm

    Thanks,for the many helpful tips

  43. Thanks for your vids brošŸ˜Ž I learned a lot….

  44. Vortex Aero USA March 9, 2021 @ 11:00 pm

    So I have a super73 Z1 and I did the 36v to 48v conversion, I went from 20mph max to 32mph max speed. Now I want to add a bigger battery and go to a 52v, my 48v battery at max charge is 53v so is it safe to use a 52v battery on my controller?

  45. Tip #11 . Move to the top of a hill. Although this will only help you one way , just get a ski lift to get you back to the top.

  46. Anthony delacruz March 9, 2021 @ 11:02 pm

    I’d like a book

  47. I Wanna Book @Mikie

  48. useless!

  49. graghams taylor March 9, 2021 @ 11:06 pm

    The Tyre pressure is unbelievably crucial, I noticed my (very basic shopper) ebike was getting way down on even it’s already lowish UK limited speed & suspected a dying motor or battery, but checked the rear tyre pressure & it had gone slightly down, I inflated it back up & the bike now goes like new again ( but I am still looking at giving it a higher volt/amp battery, motor & controller to give it a substantial ‘kick up the ass’ when funds allow!!)

  50. Wow What a joy to watch & learn stuff,quick & to the point ,no waffling on & on like in every other you tube video Love it šŸ‘šŸ‘
