Vehicle1979 Kawasaki 750T LTD
MotorBriggs and Stratton Etek-R Permanent Magnet DC
DrivetrainChain drive.
ControllerAlltrax AXE
Batteries4, 12.00 Volt, Lead-Acid, Flooded
Right now I just have one 12 volt in for testing.
System Voltage48 Volts
DC/DC Converter I'm just going to use a 12V motorcycle battery
Top Speed40 MPH (64 KPH)
This is a complete, wild-ass guess based solely on my hopes and dreams :)
Range25 Miles (40 Kilometers)
Again, this number was more or less pulled out of the air.
Seating Capacitytwo people, in theory, if I go with the 48V motor though I suspect that a second person would be very detrimental to max speed and range.
Conversion TimeUncounted, I started at the beginning of the summer.
Conversion Costso far, about $1250. I still need to purchase a controller and the batteries. I'm also not sure how much its going to cost to get a title for it here in Louisiana.
This project is semi-permanently on hold. It turns out that I can't get it registered in Louisiana. I will need to get a new frame with a proper title in order to continue.
