Ebike Upgrades: Thicker Hub Motor Wire and Cooling Mods

Introduction: Ebike Upgrades: Thicker Hub Motor Wire and Cooling Mods

About: The name's Glytch, I make things, I break things, I game, and do all around geeky/nerdy/dangerous/chaotic/ridiculous stuff :D

So I modded my ebike motor today. My original plan was to just run thicker gauge copper wire instead of the crappy aluminum wire that came with the motor and drill cooling holes in the motor casing....I got a little more than I bargained for. The hall effect sensors ended up failing irreparably. Luckily my motor controller is a dual mode controller, and it works just fine! Ill put up a test video soon. It got up to 33.6mph today!
