I am about done making changes after these changes.
I might still powder coat it later this winter.

I needed special water proof connectors for my brakes the cut off the motor when you hit the brakes.
The place I bought the controller wanted $20 a set and I need two of them.

I found a guy on ebay that was selling them for $5 much better.
I have a plastic box for the controller coming it is the last item. They created a shipping label a week ago but have net shipped it.
It is only coming on state away they assure me they will send it. The company is in China.

I may have to make one. I could easily make one but the side business is taking a lot of my extra time.

I now have 450 miles on my eBike. The new mods will probably wait until after the new year.
I will get to take the bike to the beach over the holidays. I am looking forward to new places to ride.

Wait... why are you replacing the Motor.?.. I know Bafang has a good rep, but this seems like you are spending your way to a bike that you could have just paid more for and got what you wanted? Or did you need to experiment?

I am a heavy guy and the shocks made for someone heavy is a good idea. Looking forward to more updates.

The ebike differs in power used so much. Hills make a huge difference. How much you pedal makes so much difference.

@Wanna Beco

Before I bought the ebike I never even worked on a regular bike and did not know anything about ebikes. I really did not know what I wanted or how I would want to use the ebike. I just knew some features I thought were needed and I did not want to spend a crazy amount on it.
Now I see how much I am using it I am ok with changing it to be what I want.
Most people would just put the new controller on my current motor. Others have with decent results.
My side business is doing better than I thought it would so I ok with splurging a little on my ebike.
Do I need to swap out motor no. But I want to. Down the road I will probably add a second battery.
