Where can I buy the e-4 kit for my sun ez3. I have called electroportal and they have a 6 to 8 week wait. I see where a posting said they bought it from ecoride Swedish. However I have not been able to find a web site with that name. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanke for looking at my post

Chuck,

I think we all get a little damp when it's raining. Even if you wear a rain proof shell you will sweat inside. The trick my wife and I use is to let the damp come in but keep out the wind. I've found a Wind Wrap bubble fairing over the front really helps in heavy rains and rain flaps from the fender to about a 1/2" above the ground really keep the spray down. For the rear wheel I just add a strip of rain proof material to the back of the seat and cover the top of the tire with a luggage rack. A ski mask, goggles, and light insulated gloves are great additions for early season cold weather.

It also helps to layer your clothes. For late fall and winter riding I start with an insulated thermal top over a poly-propolene biking shirt, add a long sleeve T shirt under a vest and top off with a zippered wind breaker. The vest will vary from a single layer fleece to a thick down vest and in really cold weather I've substitued the wind breaker for an insulated winter coat with a hood that will fit over the top of my cycling helmet.

Big thanks Warren way cool just what I was looking for.. Hey ? why would someone want to go faster then 20mph on a bicycle? I would be looking at a Honda for over 20mph..
I am an old fart now speed is not for me anymore 20mph 30mph is all i B looking for thees days.. I did buy a new helmet today was a Bell from wally world had to paint it lemon yellow to get what i was looking for terned out not too bad they did not have this kind of stuff when i was a kid 1968 was my first bike thees new helmet today are vented very well something we did not have when i was a kid and the bikes Wow we would of been Boss with the bikes they are putting out to day.. being from a dirt poor family with 4 kids it was a big deal to get a new tier on that one bike for all 4 of us..

That's a Cyclone motor. They have the reduction gears and controller built in. It's a nice package if going under 20MPH is your goal.
You can get Cyclone motors direct from Cyclone: http://www.cyclone-tw.com/
Or from the US distributor: http://www.cyclone-tw.com/newkits.htm
Note that they do not have the spiffy double cog that you got with your Electroportal kit, which is one reason they are cheaper.

If it's the kit I had, it's a motor with couple cogs on it so it drives through the pedal drive chain. Same kit?
It's a nice kit for 20MPH operation, but a little pricey. I can recommend the 24V x 20 Ah batteries here: http://www.goasisenergy.com/lifepo4_battery
Made in China but shipped from USA so if they have it in stock you should get it fast.

Thanks Warren I am looking for a replacement motor for this kit any ideas?
All and all I am pretty happy with the kit and yes it has the double cog I think they are calling that a planetary gear. I am good for battery but I would be interested in finding a replacement motor and planetary gear just to have it on hand maybe some one here can point me in the right direction?

OK folks here is a up date on the motor assist kit by Electroportal LCC for the Sun EZ3 after waiting 5 of the 8 weeks for this order and paying $790.Dollars for the kit it shows up USPS NOT UPS like there web said you will not be getting batteries or fuses with the kit or as shown in photo 24v battery charger even though they talk about them things being included in the kit.. Boy all the motor assist kits for the front wheel that i have seen all come with batteries so you may want to way out the cost difference and go another wrought..
