Posted this in the mods forum a while back and since have done more research and have some additional questions.
I am in the process of converting a Suzuki LT80 youth atv to electric. After running some of the ESP calc tools I am leaning towards a 1000W reversible motor with 36v battery pack. My assumptions:
Rider is 150 pounds, weight of quad = 200 pounds, top speed = 15-20 mph, mostly flat terrain trail riding with a few hills at 10% grade or less. Would like ride time to be around 60-90 minutes. Would like to use existing thumb throttle so maybe only need the cable converter.
@ESP Support can you check my calcs and build a custom kit?
Thanks for the help!
