Sacman : Alot of unknowns lol... i figure it out as i go ..
.. i measured the assembled 12v pack and with end plates etc it will be 7.5" long, and that's correct, no pedals.. just footpegs.
D : The Norco is screwed, needs a new swingarm( fudged the dropouts with an X5 !! .. ouch ) .. i'm ordering a new swingarm from the local bike shop if we can work it out somehow, i'm admitting to personal stupidity and not trying to go for a warranty claim.. it is my fault. The Dualy will end up either on the norco if i can get a new swingarm, or on the TF frame once i buy a front end for it ( trying to find a good deal on a tripple crown fork with front 24" and disk )
as per " BMI " in the battery section of the forum, one layer of electrical tape and the cells wedge right into the blocks..
