DC/DC Converter
Bought custom by a friend, produces ~12V at 3.3A (40W). Adjusted up to 13V.
InstrumentationExisting speedometer.

I bought a TBS e-Xpert pro, but it sees a constant drain on the battery of about 0.1A which I can't see from my instruments, so its actual idea of what the range is always slips down each charge.
Top Speed78 MPH (125 KPH)
It would be possible for me to verify that the motorbike will go up to 120km/hr if it was legal to go over 100km/hr in Canberra.
AccelerationModest at the moment - the controller is set at 50% of motor power, so it feels like taking off in third gear. But it keeps that rate of acceleration up to about 80km/hr, so it takes off roughly the same speed as normal car traffic but then they start falling behind...
Range78 Miles (125 Kilometers)
125km range based on recent measurements - I got to 81km and the BMS said there was about 25% battery remaining.
