Re: Ebike conversion kits.. who's fitted one.

I bought an already converted mountain bike for my girlfriend last year. It's got a twist throttle and cadence sensor with 3 "assist" settings. I switched jobs recently and as the new job is only a 3 mile each way commute, I decided to use the leccy bike. It's got off-road gear ratios so it can only...

Re: Complete Zig unit rewire

If I was going to re-wire mine I'd take loads of digital photos before I started, and then start changing the wires one for one. When it's time to re-fit check none of the new connectors can't touch any of the bare metal inside the case especially the incoming mains to the battery charger. If you ca...

Re: Complete Zig unit rewire

The wiring is pretty basic but some of the joints are soldered inside the unit. Why do you need to re-wire it?

A CF8 hasn't got a separate switch for lights. I've got LED strips wired off the loom where the old spot light was. They came with a remote control so the lights run off that.

Re: Engine keeps dying

Do you get a good flow out of the tank pipe before you fit the filter? It might be the pipes inlet inside the tank has got blocked by rust & spiders ;)

No filter in the twin carbs of an air-cooled engine.

Re: home made heat exchangers?

Didn't bother insulating it, just used it as is. I can't remember how much I bought, but 2-3 mtrs is probably enough depending on how you route it.

Re: ctek charger to chassis not battery?

I didn't look at the model you had. :oops: http://www.ctek.com/Archive/ProductPdf/MXS%2025_EN.pdf" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; But you're right it only comes with hard-wired clips and a temp sensor. The "little" charger in my van is fine for keeping the starter battery topped up if...

Re: ctek charger to chassis not battery?

I fitted my CTEK behind the driver's seat. It came with a quick connector to switch either croc clips or ring terminals. The ring terminals are on the battery terminals but I don't leave the quick connector connected as there is a bit of a drain back to the charger when its not on mains. I wired the...

Re: Best place to buy lining carpet and lining tips please

Another vote for Megavanmats. I did mine this summer. Make sure you allow plenty of time to do it. It took me about three or four days in the end. And make sure you photograph each piece of the old carpet showing how it was fixed before you remove everything. A lot of the pieces from my van over-lap...

Re: Solar panels....

I've got panels that I can connect on flying leads with two pin plugs. I've got one charge controller for leisure battery and one on the starter. Being able to move the panels around means I can position them where they're going to get the most sun. Normally I sit them on the gutter against the high...
