Project Currently on hold due to funding issues!

Converting a 1995 Honda CBR900RR Motorcycle first.

Trying The Conversion in "Phases" or "Stages" if you will. This Allows Me to Learn What Modifications Effect What and to Learn The Most I Can About My EV.

Phase 1 Will Be Finishing The Basic Conversion Process as Well As Getting Familiar With The EV and Breaking in the Pack. While That Is Going On Work Will Begin on Phase 2.

Phase 2 Will Compromise Of Complete Aero Mods Along With Weight Reduction Techniques and a Custom Data Logging System. New Paint, Sound System, and Many Other Mods Will Be Added At This Time.

Phase 3 Will be a Super Street EV Build. Right Now I am Leaning Towards a NetGain 13" Motor With Some Motor Modifications, 16 PC2150 Odysseys, and a Z2KHV. 0-60mph Time Most Important to this Phase As Car is Driven Only in City Commuting Roles Under 60mph Primarily.
