No! Everything is working beautifully. Suggestions: Install all the options with the Bafang kit, like the gear sensor. I'd also recommend using their stock brake levers instead of the brake sensors you would attach to your own brake levers (save $25). I tossed my clip-in pedals and replaced them with those large, flat pedals with the little spikes on both sides (Amazon), better for starting and stopping. I always use the thumb throttle with which to take off, then place my feet on the pedals. I did have to open up the motor and lubricate the axial and thrust bearings. Easy to do if you have a couple special tools. Email me should you have any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.Denny I just purchased a Corsa to convert to an ebike, would you change anything if you had it to do over? Thanks
I use the 48 volt battery Bafang sent me with my original order. I do not know the AH nor the brand, but it's over three years old now and working just fine. If you have the room on your bike, a 52 volt battery will work with the Bafang 750W motor and you'd get a bit more range and power out of it. If you do go with the Bafang kit for your Corsa, do either mount the motor in the extreme up position--against that vertical post that holds your front shifter--or secure it in place with a bracket as I did on mine. If you don't, the motor can rotate up and down under power and you risk pulling the wires out of the motor.What battery do you use and what would you recommend?
Wow that is great, were you riding on mostly flat ground?Just installed a Bafang BBS02 750w mid motor,48v 20.3 AH Whale Shark battery,DPC-18LCD display Set the display at 0-9 rode 41 miles in #4 started the ride with 52.6 volts ended with 52.2 volts. it looks like I can use a higher level and still get plenty of miles Next ride I will ride in level #5 and check millage. Do you know what voltage the motor shuts off at?
