I thought I had a better picture or one with the pan installed but this is the only one I could find.

Surely very very easy you could mount 2 superchargers down the middle and have the pan go deeper and still keep plenty of cornering clearance.

This is just 1/8" or 0.125 aluminum I bent and cut holes in for the wires to come out the sides

Yeah its a bit strange. There are several stations with cable attached too, but i cant use them because the charge tank has typ1 j1772 and in europe typ2 mennekes is standard. So i would need an adapter cable for this what costs awesome 350$ :o

I mostly do not use the charge tank because i dont drive mlre than 120 miles on an normal driving day. So always carrying a top box only for the cable is no option for me

remove factory charger.
make custom aluminum skidplate that doubles as heatsink.
mount 4 supercharger modules in place.

This is what I did.

I have both a powertank, and 4 superchargers under the bike.  13,200 watts of charging with a 45 minute run time before thermal power cutback, which is perfect to match my usual charge time

I would keep it in a top box at all times yes.  I keep other cords in my top box, but in the states and lots of other places the charge station has it's own cord so the charge tank doesn't need anything else.  I thought it to be very strange Europe did this.  It's like they were trying to solve a problem that wasn't a problem.

OK, identified what the small part is: It is a small screw to fasten the piston its position, to enable it to be prolonged or shortened, so that the length fits. It's working now.

Has anyone gotten any replies from Hollywood Electrics via email? Tried twice now, and just silence.

CYCLE ANALYST is the best tool.

I'm using this device on all my ebike build since 10 years.

I see that there is a new apps fo the Zero voltage ( Great!)  but why are Zero  not working to correct the voltage reading error  problem on the ZERO apps?


The problem is not just with the app! My 2014 SR, with fresh firmware, showed 52% charge when I got lots of thrust. I proceeded to the closest chargepoint and charged 9.8kwh!  It actually reduced SoC during charging for the first charge. I typically see my SoC a bit inaccurate (loss of thrust at 6-10%) but today was ridiculous.

(Doc, you should find to Refuel at Laguna Seca next year.)

dagh I missed you guys. Local makers faire here in Truckee CA today was volunteering for and it was snowing on and off the whole day. Starting 6am snow, hail, rainstorm, sunshine, fog, dust storm, repeat hourly until 6pm. Weather sure looks nice in the photos!

In two weeks, we'll join up with sf-mc again, charge at San Rafael, ride to cazaderos with them. Their road captain are happy to have e-motorcyclists along, and accommodate charging needs. This is the motorcycle club that has the longest history of acceptance. And they have very entertaining business meetings, and beer, every Thursday night.

We got started late, but we got to hang out with a lot of cool e-motorcycle aficionados, mostly Zero and Hollywood Electrics, but some others too, and a lot of EV car people.  Hope you are getting better, Brian, and that you get home safely David and Shadow.

(I also learned how inaccurate SoC can be today.)

When you install the Charge Tank you lose the storage in the tank region. I knew that, and it's nice to have the charge tank with you all the time. But i forgot to think about the cable.. It's pretty big and i have to take the GIVI-box or a Backpack with me when i consider to charge "fast", what irrelevates the point of having the chargetank always installed to charge spontaneously.
For little things I installed two 0.8l bags on the sides (on the battery, between fairing and frame. I will upload an photo some time). But what i really would love, is a good way to always have the (for europe) Typ2 Mennekes Cable with me.

has anyone figured out a good Solution?
