Mullet Shakedown


YamaHead

Recommended Posts

Weather turned out to be quite nice this morning, so out to the garage I went w/ manual in hand. Tightened up some loose fasteners around the handlebar mounted computer & pumped the shock up just slightly as well as adjusted the damping....which equated to a big diff in the ride...all on the positive side.πŸ‘Β So I donned the Bell lid, glove & shades...then headed for the eastside back to Cemetary rd. for some nice views.

Looking west....where I'll end up heading to on another occasion.

1 last view south towards Mt. Harris. Last week I put a coat of black bed-liner on the battery for protection until I hunt down a pair of fenders. I think I'll repaint that again with some Herculiner which is a rubber/urethane based bed-liner....also cover the front section of the mid-drive motor. It'll also help insulate the battery for those cold weather rides.

A qwik tour through the cemetary as there was a few flowers dispensed on grave stones...probably because of Easter weekend. Looking NW towards where I live....

Decided to have a closer look @ the Grand Ronde river that runs through an RV park along the way... en route towards that....

River is pretty full from the spring run-off right now.... not to fret there Pete...just remember-- It's NOT your bike!...lolπŸ˜…

On the way home I rode up north to the end of a new subdivision where there was a field full of dozy cows...1 came over to say Hi...lol

Overall, pretty happy with the improved ride quality...but noticed some shifting issues (jumping between 7th & 8th gears)...but the electronic shifter should sort that out.😎

Excellent Scott.....were you running on the battery all the time?

Sure was....mostly in PA levels 2 & 3. Got home & still had 86% of battery life left. Turned it up to level 5 for that last few blocks....Beast get's right w/ the program!

The 750w motor really puts the power down.πŸ’ͺ😎

Nice one Scott, how do you control your braking ?

Front brake is already on the LH from stock....after I sort the electronic shifter, I'll see if I can swap the rear brake over to the left (flipping over the lever & MC)....depends on how room is left on the left side of the handlebar...it's gonna look a lot like my Mongoose...nothing on the RH side, just a place to latch onto w/ the hook.

Nice one, Scott.

Based on the first test ride, what is your estimate for longest range with maximum assistance? Looks like a beast of a bicycle!

Went to their site & inquired.... it's a 750w unit from a company called Star Union. Scored a fender set as well, while I was there.

Need to ride it some more 1st, but I just visited their website & found out it has a 14amp hr. battery....& they're coming out with a bigger one yet. Weather's looking better for the next 3 days, so I'll have to ride some more on PA level 5 & maybe get a better idea on the range.

I had a ride on a cannondale a while ago. The only electric mtb I rode, it’s astonishing how a properly assisted bike rides over any terrain and climbs doing 20 to 25kmh with minimum effort. Assuming they have developed batteries over the last few years you’ll be onto a treat.

Rode west this morning out to Elgin's city dump....last time I was up here the road was still gravel....been paved now & is probably 1 of the nicest it town.

Man, I'm lovin' these early morning rides....

Blasted smudge on the camera lens!....But the view is hard to beat....

On the way back down this newly paved road, I turned the PA level down to 0 & just coasted down to the flat part of the road.....saw 28 mph on the screen.πŸ‘πŸ˜Ž

Excellent Scott!

Is it capable of doing more difficult terrain?

Yes....that paved road leads to a gnarly gravel road called Pumpkin Ridge which leads over the top & down to the small of Summerville-(pop. 135)...where I found my truck.

A lot of ruts, rocks etc. 4x4 req'd if not traveling by 2 wheels....got my sights on it after a full recharge.πŸ˜‰
