Well, ideally, i would like more range, and faster... I don't have the Lithium model. (Also, I fixed the tyre issue since i posted...)Do you just want the same capability, or do you want more speed or torque or new features, etc?
If you don't need anything to be different, it's not worth the cost to change the motor, since you have to change out at minimum the controller and motor and wiring between them. If there is a display or control panel (usually on hte handlebars) you may have to replace that, too, if it communicates with the controller or is connected to it or the motor. It's likely the throttle and brake levers will still work with the new controller, but if it's a potentiometer throttle you may have to change the settings in the controller for throttle start/end value, etc. (if it can't do that you may need a new hall type throttle).
If you do want something to be different, then specify what that (those) thing(s) is (are) and we can see what it might take to do that.
Since we don't know how much range you have, or how much you want, or how fast it goes now under the specific riding conditons you have there, or how fast you want to go, we'll need more info.Well, ideally, i would like more range, and faster...

Ok, well, considering I live in Montreal and there is the Mont-Royal in the middle, Its quite a big incline up and then down...On a full charge I'd go up and down the incline in power mode (distance of about 10-12kms each way) and barely made it back if i didn't charge again... if Google is a good indicator, it says its a "moderate incline" of 275 feet up and then 360 feet down and then in reverse.. so total 25- 30 kms incline included. my speed going down hill was easy 50km/h to 65 km/hr, going up was 30-40km/h max at first and on top like 20km/hr till i reached the top which i think is not great...I believe that if i went on a flat surface, the scooter would go up to 50km range in eco and 30 in power mode...
Thanks for you reply, I weigh 180lbs and the bike and batteries weigh 280lbs. it is an evt 4000 e, and uses 4 Sealed Lead Acid Long WP50-12NE, so i guess the fact that i got that far is pretty good...just wish i could get further on a charge and faster. I thought that switching batteries to lithium in 2023 might be cheaper and easier, or maybe a few tweeks by knowledgeable people here might be helpuful... so far thanks for all your input btwIf you don't know the slope you can measure it with various phone apps. Knowing the slope, weight, and speed is required to determine power required to do the work.
So far there isn't any of the required info to calculate what power you need to do what you want it to do. All we have so far is just info on how it already performs for you on an unknown slope with unknown weight.
If you prefer not to state the required info, you can always just go directly to the simulator at ebikes.ca or other online calculators, and input the info directly to get your power needs. Then you can use that to research the parts required to do it.
That is one of the required pieces of info.I weigh 180lbs and the bike and batteries weigh 280lbs.
Once you decide how far you need to go, and how fast you need to go at the fastest, and what speed you need to go up what worst-case slope, you can then take that and the total weight to the calculators or simulators to find out what it takes to do what you want.just wish i could get further on a charge and faster.
Cheaper and easier than what?I thought that switching batteries to lithium in 2023 might be cheaper and easier,
Not really many tweaks you can do for what you've described so far, beyond the things you can do for any vehicle, some of which you may already be doing:or maybe a few tweeks by knowledgeable people here might be helpuful...
