Can someone help me? I want to make a fast e dirt bike with like a crf 250 frame I want it to have the same amount of power as it would if it was a regular 250. I don’t want to spend over 5k is there any way I could make a build that would be fast and could wheelie that doesn’t cost too much.

I'm going to predict that it will be difficult to get advice with the shotgun strategy. Your four threads with the same subject will just confuse everything. I don't think it breaks the forum rules directly, although embedded in the rules thread is a statement "...helping keep duplicate topics to a minimum", that perhaps reflects the spirit of some of the rules.

The full text reads:
5. Search before posting!
We have both a google search function ( pretty good! ) and a PhpBB search function that's more specific. Please use them before posting to see if your question has already been asked; helping keep duplicate topics to a minimum.


Following this advice:

search.php?keywords=crf250
search.php?keywords=crf250r

Give some more information as far as what your goals are. what type of terrain? How fast, how far etc.

The Honda CRF 250 is a motorcycle. You might get a better response in the eMotorcycle section.

Just means the mods will have to merg OP's thread.

More info is
Price range
Power range
Speed range
Terrain ridden

I moved all of your various threads for this same thing into your first one, and then moved it to the Motorcycle forum for you.

I recommend you stick to just the one thread, and carefully read and answer those that respond.

I take it you do not ride motorcycles? It is a well learned habit, and there is plenty of control with foot brakes.

Your yet another new thread for the same thing has been merged with all the others into your first thread.

Please stop making new threads and use this one, instead of ignoring those already trying to help you, answer them and they may be able to help you.

If you ignore those already posting in your threads and start new ones instead, no one is going to want to help you.

Have you ridden electric motorcycles? Have you lowsided a motorcycle? Have you always braked on time?

Yes, no because I ride well, so far. What does any of those questions have to do with a foot brake?

Can you explain why manufacturers such as Zero should keep foot brakes on Electric Motos?

Because people that Ben riding motorcycles all there life wanna get a electric bike they have to get used to a whole new brake system. Then if there new rider that ride on a left back brake if they get a gas Dirtbike then it would take more getting used too.

Exactly, now why is the rear brake on the foot on gas bikes? Is it because the cockpit is full with clutch and front brake? Why aren't the clutch and front brakes on the feet?

Both those things take more finesse and coordination than you have in your feet.

When I rode a motorcycle for daily transportation, I wouldn't touch the rear brake at all for days at a time.
This is to express my gratitude to Justin of Grin Technologies for his extraordinary measures to save this forum for the benefit of all.

Would you have left hand rear brake, right hand front brake, right hand throttle on your emoto, Chalo?
