Hello Everyone, Hopefully there are a few motor / electronic gurus out there for this question!
Basically i have an Evolve Bamboo GT, the stock motors that come with the board are 150kv & 1500Watts each. (2of) So my question is, I have found 2 different motors that are dimensionally identical and also come with the same wiring and plugs! one is rated at 140kv and the other at 200kv. I have no idea how i calculate the wattage from these values. I understand that KV is RPM per volt but that’s about it. The main reason i have this query is because i would like to know what would happen if instead of the 150kv motor i used 140kv or the 200kv and are they compatible with the motor controller in the board? What kind of effect would it have on the battery and speed? would it cause any kind of electrical damage?
See attached motor data sheet for the 2 motors i have found
from what i understand the BGT is 36V. i get motor RPM of around 5400 so… RPM divided by Volts = kv = 5400 Divided by 36 = 150 150kv this motor is rated to 1500 watts from what i gather by “3000 watts of duel motor power”
The new motor is rated at 1200 watts and is140kv or… motor 2 is 1650 watts and 200kv
Any info on this would be much appreciated. I am basically trying to find out if these motors are suitable for my Evolve Bamboo GT and if so, what the differences of the motors would make to the board and battery performance!
