Installing two electric motors together with one chain will result in an increase in power equal to the combined power of the two motors.
Although I recommend to use two identical motors when doing this, in your case the two motors in your photo are very similar in power and RPM so I think they will work fine together. The two motors will need to have the same Voltage rating which I am fairly certain that in your case they do.
This two electric motors on one scooter modification has been done by our customers many times with great results.
Two motors would probably run the batteries down twice as fast as one motor would if the scooter was ran at full power most of the time. If you make a switchable 24/36 Volt battery pack the Voltage could be switched when the scooter was moving, I would recommend to let off the throttle for a second when switching the Voltage though.
i have a 500 lb go kart .would like to use two motors and one controller . can i use two 750 watt motors and a 1500 watt controller ? can i go bigger than that ? can you sell me a kit with all these parts ? thanks for your support .
Yes, two 750 Watt brushed motors can be run off of a single 1500 Watt controller. You can go bigger by running two 1000 Watt, 1600 Watt, or 2000 Watt motors off of two controllers and wiring a single throttle to both controllers.
We can make a kit with all of the parts you need. Do you plan to use the motors so one is spinning clockwise and the other counterclockwise, or will both motor spin in the same direction?
thanks for the help. i think i would like to use two 48 V 1000 watt motors with a single 2000 watt controller . i do plan to mount these motors face to face so they will need to run in opposite directions . I think i need at least # 35 chain . if this sounds OK let me know how i go about ordering this kit .thanks again .
