Very cool.  Did you have to separate the pieces of the tank in order to paint it?  If so, how difficult was the procedure to disassemble and reassemble it?

I think simply taping it would work. Get some good 1/4" masking tape made for the edges and 1" for the strip and you will be set.

I finally have mine at home, they should be getting installed somewhere in May. The 13.2kW fluid cooled version sure comes with a lot of wires :o With the next winter ahead, I'm wondering what the right coolant for the system is, red or blue.
Cool! Does that mean that you have the 13.2 kW version? How do you wire this at 3 fases?

Two thing, battery capacity isn't mentioned anywhere as far as I could've find, and how are you planning to cram a battery of any significant proportion in that teeny tiny tail piece?

I think with said tailpiece it could be 4kW max? Assuming a custom made battery ...

It would be more interesting to turn the tail into the gas tank and put more batteries under the actual tank area. Kinda of like how the NC700X stores its gas. This opens up the possibility of more battery range.

But this all really depends on how this thing is going to work (ie generator based, or hybrid based where low cities speeds = electric and highway = gas)

in the arduino editor i selected "sketch"  in the menu, then "use libraries" and "manage libraries"

in the librarymanager you can search for "PID" and then select "PID by Brett Beauregard". Doubleclick to install this library

it could be the names of the menus are a bit different, I translated them from Dutch.

Here's the first half of the code i have now due to a 20000 character limit of the forum

Code: [Select]
// from rectifier : (requests for logins)
// 05014400 + ser nr + 00 00 from rectifier  : HELLOOW where are you ! rectifier sends 05014400 and 6 bytes serial number and followed by 00 00 (login request)
// 0500xxyy + 1B + ser nr + 00 is send during normal voltage every second. xxyy is the last 2 bytes from the serial number
// after either of these send 05004804 every 5 seconds ! to keep logged in. rectifier does not send login requests so after 10 second the numbers stop until 05014400 is sent
// from rectifier : (status messages)
// 0501400C + status data : walkin and below 43 volts (error) and during walk-out (input voltage low)
// 05014010 + status data : walkin busy
// 05014004 + status data : normal voltage reached
// 05014008 + status data : current-limiting active

// send TO rectifier (act as controller)
// 05004804 + ser nr + 00 00 from controller : send 05004804 and 6 bytes ser number followed by 00 00
// 05FF4004 controller sends current and voltage limits (last 4 is 5 sec walk-in, for 60 second walk-in use 05FF4005)
// 05FF4005 controller sends current and voltage limits (last 5 is 60 sec walk-in, for 5 second walk-in use 05FF4004)
// PID settings of 0.5 , 0.5 and 0.0 work excellent. Nice and slow buildup of voltage and current

Which PID library did you use? This one: http://playground.arduino.cc/Code/PIDLibrary ?

Sorry for my messy driveway I couldn't wait to post pictures. This is my 2015 Zero SR that I've put roughly 100 miles on, it's been cold still in the Pacific Northwest :)
This is a paint job I did myself (Like me on: Facebook.com/Duskfire.Designs ) plus risers with clubman bars, and bar end mirrors. I chose to paint a bit more than the original red thinking that it would improve the appearance and it really did imo. The clubman bars didn't quite fit with the brake line so I had to have the throttle sticking out from the bar about 1-inch so I had to get an extra long bolt with a bunch of washers to get the bar end mirror to work on the throttle side, but it's not noticeably uneven ;) I also added a USB charger from eBay ($11 works great) and a phone mount.
Up next I'm going to make a fiberglass box instead of that silly bag thing, as well as a guest seat cover/cowl thing.
I was originally going to make some fairings for the bike out of fiberglass but now I'm thinking just a wind screen to come up from the original light. I'm also going to add some LED underglow to it. I'll add photos to the thread from better light and locations as well as some other updates.
