I changed from a thumbthrottle and power button.. to this full twist
The one day i didnt have my regen brake throttle on this happens that would of cut the power...
When i get home ill rewire the thing up and try to find the problem..
I always end up buying a cheap throttle, i should invest in a magura throttle.
But i tell you what it scared me yesterday because i tried to slam brakes on and the front tyre just locked up ( it was raining) so i almost crashed.
When i yanked the powercord from my battery pack the first time, i ripped it so hard out of panic, it got thrown like 30 meters, spent 10 mins looking for it. lol...

Last night i was riding in the rain, was moderately heavy..
Anyway, i was riding, my bike all the sudden it stopped, so i reset it, started working again..
All the sudden the thing went into full throttle and a moment later i was doing 80kmh and had to reach to pull my battery cables out as i have no safety features on my bike.

You need to cut the power with your brake levers!

Had V brakes on the rear, and 8" hydros on the front, with holly rollers and all this did was lock up the front wheel - at 3+ Kw getting dumped into it there was no chance of stopping. Normal style (non-led) half-twist throttle, water got into the throttle connectors, thats all it took.
Regretted not hooking up the damn EBRAKES. Do so - it bypasses the throttle.
