Possible to combine a 50cc scooter w/ a 250 watt dc electric scooter motor to add "boost" after gas engine tops out?
Other than mounting the motor with a hub and adding in extra chain, how would you calculate the right gearing ratio to provide power at top RPM? Also could the dc motor be used as an "alternator" to provide hybrid like recharging of the batteries from the gas engine?
Looking for anyone who may have insight on this. The motive here is to be able to keep up in uphill traffic without having a line of angry cars behind you.
