Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

No a rotary seal relies on a lip sealing on the rotating inner shaft. An XSeal either rotates on the outer surface or on the inner shaft and rotates against a surface wiping that surface. The downside is more drag when your battery dies but do we really care when on one hand it will better protect t...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Yes one of the Brose repairers in the UK now fits an X O ring between the bearing and the crank. Sadly to date I have not been able to find a 15mm X O Ring seal.

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Just a wee chime in here. I've just taken a spider off that had the standard RS type which we had filled with water proof grease. Sadly the seals have not been enough for the British mud fest and have let water and mud in. I would recommend paying the extra for the enduro style double seal such as t...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Surely the Bafang BBS02 will give you all you want on a commuter bike. I ran mine at about max 1000 - 1200W and theres some really good free software available which with careful manipulations of the settings, you can get them really almost similar to the torque sensing TSDZ2 feel. From the factory ...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Its like 5 different people experiencing the same here: https://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=98361 . It is all extended axles, so I think the problem is worse on those, but the design is still pretty much the same on the 68mm version. Enduro bikes usually have wider BB than the old 68m...

3) Return the unit to Eco-Ebike for them to QA/QC or replace
You got it, what ever you do to this engine, the doubts are now there for you. You would be much better to put the money from the refund into a second hand specifically designed E commuter bike.

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

I dont know what is up with you every time someone says something negative about this motor? I'm all up for criticism in its place, but this motor in my view is being unfairly rated at times by posters who are using it in ways it was never intended by the designers and then dissing it because their...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

If you are doing enduro on your enduro bike, its not the way up you should be worried about, its the way down. The crank is not only underdimensioned and made put of butter, it also has a recess for a lock ring right at the critical spot. I would avoid jumps and drops with that motor, it might hurt...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

On road bikes for commuting without a sweat, the Bafang BBS02 and BBSHD if you want a heavy duty 1200W beast are incrediably reliable and relatively easy to convert over similar to the TSDZ2. They are well documented and have many forum threads advocating their plus points for commuting. I think we ...

Brose mid engine

There are a number of the early Specialized bikes starting to appear on the auction sites with the Brose mid motor. Now these would make really good donor motors. Has anyone done any research into these in regard connecting home built battery packs and voltage levels such as 48 volts on the 36 volt ...

Re: Mid Drives Working With Coaster Brakes

Its not a problem at all at 300W's. We run 400- 500 W's climbing hard with the standard engine without a problem.

I'm fairly sure that on skinny tyres, on a bike with a steep city head angle, high COG and no brakes to talk of, that anything above 25kph would be an accident waiting to happen. :D

Re: Mid Drives Working With Coaster Brakes

The TSDZ2 does a Coaster brake version with throttle, ideal conversion.

The over heating is a few posters blowing hot air onto motors not designed for 600+ Watts and then wondering why they over heat. Keep it under 500W's and they are pretty reliable, and thats way above your city speed limits.

Re: TSDZ2 OSF for all displays, VLCD5-VLCD6-XH18, LCD3, 860C-850C-SW102.

For any sort of reliable testing, the human element has to be eliminated. Any chance we could use only a throttle for some test runs and measure consumed energy, sure there’s going to be some environmental differences, but us humans are the most variable of all as to how much energy we can add to th...

See the wiki, with pictures of my son 24 inches wheel EBike with TSDZ2. Thanks. Is there a way to tell the difference between newer TSDZ2 (helical gear, narrow axle) and old TSDZ2 without taking them apart? No and maybe. But the old motors are now probably 4 years old at least, the chance of gettin...
