Vehicle1995 Kawasaki EX250
Ninja 250, converted to electric power.
MotorMars ME0709 Permanent Magnet DC
Often called "Etek-RT" because it was
designed as a higher torque replacement
for the discontinued Briggs & Stratton
Etek, the ME0709 was made by Mars, which
has changed its name to Motoenergy.
ControllerKelly KD72401
Kelly brushed DC motor controller -
includes regen, though I haven't been
using it yet.
Batteries24 SE40AHA, 3.30 Volt, Lithium Iron Phosphate
CALB (formerly known as Sky Energy) 40Ah
cells. Pack is actually about 82v fresh
off the charger.
System Voltage79 Volts
Charger TSL72-15
Looks like it's made by Sky Energy,
purchased from Elite Power Solutions.
Has been working reliably, and charges
the pack quick. This is my second
charger, the first was a 10 amp from
Chennic (appears to be a relabeled
Kelly) that did not function - For
months, Chennic has gone back and forth
in e-mail trying to diagnose its
problem and have not answered any
questions about replacement or warranty
- horrible post sale support.
HeaterHeater?!? This is Florida.

I use a
RiteTemp Athletics Endurance Vest (

for air conditioning under my leather
riding jacket.

noticeable heat - fantastic!
