Hello, I bought an electric bike conversion kit and converted my own bike. However, despite the kit being advertised as around 35mph, it seems to have a speed limiter that kicks in at 26mph. It's a 2000w peak controller, brush-less 3 phase motor. At 26mph, I get a constant 1200w so I know I have the power to go faster and the rated rpm of the motor is 540 so I'm not close to my limit there. There are no speed wires I can cut, I've looked and I have tried changing the wheel diameter in settings with no luck.
To me it appears the only solution is to place a arduino between the 3 hall sensor wires of the motor and the controller to somehow trick the controller that I'm moving at half the speed that I actually am.
Does this sound like the right way to go about it? Anybody have a arduino function in mind that I can use to achieve this?
I was gonna hook up each hall sensor to a analog input and use a function to register every 2 rotations as 1.
Does anybody know if doing this may affect motor performance/function?
Thanks for the help.
