Half a year with my 2013 Zero DS
« on: March 31, 2015, 03:40:06 PM »

I just finished a blog post describing my experience with my Zero.  http://ptruchon.pagekite.me/wiki/blog/2015-03-30/electric-zero-motorcycle  I talk about:
  • Acceleration
  • Charging
  • Environmental Impact
  • Lists some mods and add ons
  • Show some pictures
  • List some resources (including this website)

Next on my list is to buy a fast charger from Hollywood Electrics before the summer.  ElectricCowboy has kindly given us more information about how he put his under then tank: http://electricmotorcycleforum.com/boards/index.php?topic=4227.msg27006  If it's something I can manage, I'll go for it...

Whoa - I'd be interested in the details on how you did your USB charger install. That is 1000x cleaner looking than mine.

Thanks.  It took me a while to find these resources when I was looking to buy the bike, so I thought I'd share what I've learned so far and try to inspire others to go electric.

Thanks.  The original thread I followed was http://electricmotorcycleforum.com/boards/index.php?topic=3427.0  I just added a section on my blog post that gives more details regarding the UBS charger (and other modifications I made).  http://ptruchon.pagekite.me/wiki/blog/2015-03-30/electric-zero-motorcycle

Cheers!
