The spokes could probably be machined down a specific amount, if you want them perfect.

If you cut them down, do you need to add more threads?

My friend trued the wheel up after I built it and he thinks it might be ok!


Got the first part machined... I think it might be the first proper machined part I have ever paid for. (I send a lot of stuff to the machine shop at work but I don't have to pay for it haha)

Told the machinist not to worry about surface finish.



Also...this really isn't going to be remotely close to a YZ85.

Well, colour me subscribed. But you'd better not build another electric bike before I finish the Street Triple, punk!

It's not so bad as long as you can keep the fear from your mind.

Right so I have been doing stuff but progress has been painfully slow for a while. Simply a matter of me not being able to design my life in a way that allows maximum motorcycle building time. But I will do better!


Bought 400 batteries:


Pulled a transformer out of a microwave that reeked of 2 minute noodles. Cut off the secondary coil and tapped out the remnants with a punch. Cleaned up sharp edges with a file. Rewound with some thick cable. Only a couple of turns for high amperage, low voltage. Heaps of info on the net on spot welders if anyone is interested. Bought a timer kit off ebay and the gun/iron thing.









Looks to be working well but welds aren't that strong, I suspected that my cable wasn't thick enough and I think that is the case. I'll rewind it with some thicker cable and let everyone know once I've got it working properly.

I can't believe how long it's taking me to sort myself out... this battery pack is a mission!

Long story short I'm trying to weld quite thick nickel (0.3mm) to the 18650 batteries so the pack can carry the desired current.

The first microwave transformer powered welder I built wasn't powerful enough so I've now built a welder that is powered by two car batteries and uses a mosfet switch (I didn't build the switch) because apparently there is no substitute for low impedance

If anyone is interested in the setup here is a video, apologies for my mono-tonal drone

Great to have some expert help. A friend who has used a Orion BMS before is wiring it up for me and checking everything is working as it should.

Should have a wheel going within a few weeks.
