Default 91' 36V upgrade to 48V

With the good ole v-glide and resistors style of go control, when upgrading to 48V, does the v-glide controller have to be replaced? Obviously the batt's, solenoid and cables.

Thanks for the help.

I think whats keeping anyone from posting their thoughts here is there was a lot of debate recently about what "should" be done and what you "have" to do. The question I have learned you need to ask yourself is dollars for dollars do you want to be trouble free, or always worrying about overheating some components down the road, and possibly having some residual damage as well as ScottyB recently posted some nice pics. of in another post recently.

Yep, you can rig them to work with little more than a set of 8 volts but, not without operational hazards. If you are interested in doing a complete trouble free 36 to 48v conversion then you are going to need to install a new throttle pot and controller as well as a solenoid and cables.....

Cool. Got it. I saw the pic's from the other thread. Don't want that happening!

Do I just look for a 48V v-glide controller or does that even exist?

There is a v-glide compatable with controllers...and there is a resistor kit to convert any V-glide to work with a 5K-0 controller.

Thanks, scottyb.

I will look for both and try to determine what direction I would prefer.

Do you have a preference with regard to ease of installation and performance?

You are not going to get this combo....the V-glide has ease of instalation but, it's not super smooth acceleration because it is still of the old speed button type. The PB-6 potentiometer will give you fluid drive acceleration but you will have to fab up a little mount and linkage for it.....
