Conversion TimeLots. Lost track along time ago. Spent alot of time getting
doner in shape and waiting for batteries. This winter I am
going to tear her down and tweek everything.
Conversion CostAbout $6,000.00 ($2,400.00 for batteries $850.00 for two
chargers). Need to add up receipts.
If you are planning on building an EV pay a little more and get a nice donor. I spent a lot
of
time and money to get the bike in shape. Lithium is worth the extra money if you can
swing it but you will need a BMS (more expense I didn,t alow for) and there is alot to
learn
about lithium before you take the plunge.
