I have been running the 24/900 watt motor on 37 volt lipos and a 60 amp controller. To date I have measured it to pull 77amps with a voltage drop to 35.7 volts on my son's OSET trials bike. This is significantly more power out than its stated 900 watts. I have a motor test data sheet on the 600 watt motor which lists a stall current at about 150 amps. Of course there is no efficiency at this output and the motor would not last long in that state.
If anyone has the motor test data on the 24v/900 watt or the 36v/1000 motor please let me know.
I have been very interested in that motor for a long time. If I were to get a 10S - LTO charger I would only be hauling around about 23 pounds of LTOs instead of about 46 pounds. From what I read the motor is pretty decent. A big step above the 450W Currie motor that came stock with my Currie. The motor DA likes.

Can we just talk about 24V motors instead of my shortcomings. I know I am frocked up. You guys just like rubbing salt in the wound. I suck at math. I like math but not any good at it. I barley passed Algebra 2. Think I got a C in it. Don't remember. I could re learn it but would need a tutor and would really have to put effort in studying.
There are a lot of people out there 10 to 100 times more frocked up then me though. Most people have no clue how to build an e bike.
Two of those motors would be 1,800W @ 24V. One on the front and one on the back. 35 mph gearing. It would last much longer than the idea above by LCNMRider overvolting and over amping a single motor.
Just an idea.
I will also be building the 3 kilowatt brushless motor and running the 13S power modules in series with 4S - LiPo as soon as I move out of this shithole. Eventually I will be able to test the LTOs when the snow melts and I get my new motor sprocket.
That is what I have to look forwards to. I spent > $600 on those LTOs so plan on running them a lot this spring and summer. I will probably be building more e bikes as well and as long as the cyber cop don't ban me I can post them here. I also got a new power meter but is different than the one I got that DA. recommended. The new one has a shunt.
I build e bikes. There not always pretty or practical but sometimes they work, at least for awhile. Immortality is not a dream but the future of our evolution. We were given the tools to forge our own destiny. We were created in gods image and shall evolve to live forever.
