Coming home from work this morning i noticed the handlebar lights dipped to half way (orange) when full power was applied, on hilly sections.

Thanks for the reply. But honestly i have no idea of all this electrickery.. i just wait until i see a green light then i assume its charged.

Well it was the first time i charged it, too the green light..
I didnt have time to test it until yesterday, after a recharge. So maybe it had a bearing, im unsure.
It does work fine now.
I even got to 24mph this morning.
Just to update this.
Im now getting the quoted 22mph as mentioned in the advert for the kit.
I have done nothing but re-charged the battery. So no idea what changed.
It will go up most inclines and hills but i sometimes have to help it along. Even then its no sweat from me.

Hi, i will try and get a cycle computer as soon as possible.
The kit i got was from ebay.. item.. 223553124225
I contacted the seller and he just told me to unplug the blue wires, which i already tried.. he also told me to send a picture of the wheel number, which i will do.
Its riding on a flat surface.. and yes im a bit tubby..
Also what im not sure about is why with wire attached or not attached istill get the same mph.
I have both pedal sensor and thumb throttle attached.. but when i pedal i get no help from the motor,only thumb throttle seems to work.

Any ideas, Or is...
Hi.. well after doing the dabbling in this forum a while ago and forgetting about it, i decided to turn my old Gary Fisher Mamba in to an Ebike. I bought a voilamart 500 front wheel conversion.
It took me most of the day on and off as i also changed the front v brakes, cables, gear shifters...
