Default 36v to 48v

My friend ask if I could upgrade this for him. 2002 36v v-glide. 6-8volt batts, 48 v solenoid heavy duty f/r switch, leave the 36v motor in. If I use a aftermarket 48v charger I think I don't have to change any harness wiring or need a obc since the charger will have the timer in it. And change the charger recptical. I think it will run pretty well speed wise leaving the original motor in.
Am I missing any thing and what are someones thoughts on this. The only reason he wants to do this is it needs new batts and I can get aftermarket chargers cheap. I am wondering though about the f/r switch. The 36v has only one micro and 48v's have three.

It should be a straight forward swap. You will defiately need to remove the OBC and get the automatic charger. I dont think you will need to modify the micros but I can't say for sure because I usually wire carts the way I want them.

This is a 36 series cart so there is no obc. I get those chargers from lvs sales. I'm thinking this upgrade will work with the single micro on the f and r switch. I see alot of talk on different forums but have yet to get a recipe on exactly everything is needed.
Thanks for your quick reply.

Aah... you mentioned OBC in your first post so I assumed. Anyways...yea a single micro will work great. I do the same to mine becuase it leaves less to troubleshoot if something goes wrong. I have never tried an LVS charger...some say they work great.

The 48v cars typically have three micro switches, 1 for activation, 1 for reverse buzzer, 1 for half speed on reverse.

A 36v car only uses 1 micro; for activation. The reverse half speed is done in the f/r switch, as is the buzzer.

So if all you are swapping is batts, and solenoid, you're good. In future if you need to replace f/r switch, stick with the 36v one. It's more than capable of handling the 48v, and it different than the normal 48v one.

Thanks guys This will work out good.As far as the lvs charger,I have had good luck with it on 48v cars bypassing the obc.It leaves you with a automatic charger and not having to replace the obc.
