Hi Guys, I did a ride out last weekend and the bike got quite muddy so I washed it down with hot soapy water as normal and then lightly hosed off with hot water. Dried in the sun with a leather and then an air line, finished off with a bike spray to stop rust. I put the bike away and got it out a week later, turned it on and woah.....FULL throttle 4.3kw big wheelie and luckily I shut it down quickly.
I then turned the key on again, of again, on etc....it either goes Wot (wide open throttle) or nothing at all, I.e. the throttle does nothing. I have checked the 5pin sensor wire by the crank and that is dry as a bone. Do we think this is a controller issue, a throttle issue or maybe a ca issue?
I have taken the end cover off the controller to let it air and the side panel is off the bike to allow airflow there.
Normally I would just ping this to John but expect he is on his weekend now.
It seems to me, that it is just like a dog....
You wash it, dry it, and it INSTANTLY tears off around the backyard trying to get dirty again.
It just wants to feel "Natural"
To save yourself the trouble, after you wash it, throw a couple of handfulls of dirt at it. This should solve the problem... Regards, Stealth Electric Bike Whisperer!!
Bloody good idea to hold rear brake on ignition ON.
