Step 6: Riding
This is the fun bit. If u used an old motor like mine that is very unreliable and crappy, it would be best to carry out some maintenance on your engine. Also unlike me it would be wise to put brakes on your bike!!! I got quite a scare going into a busy intersection with thongs (flip flops, sandals) as my only brake.
Also check the legality of these kinds of mods, in NSW, Aust, to be legal it must be under 800watts of power and under 25cc or something. Iâm sure cops would love to book someone causing trouble on a motorised pushbike.
My bike when the engine was running nice did 40kmh easy on flat. I put nitro fuel (15% nitro methane, the stuff used for R/C cars) in it one day and it went ballistic, it scared me.
The clutch on mine wore out pretty quickly coz its old n Iâm heavy n didnât want to pedal at all. But if your light or have a more powerful motor u donât have to pedal ne time except for start off and really steep hills.
