Default Re: vglide melted??! Help!

Ok, learn something new every day. Thanks for the info. I might need guidance once I start tearing into it.. but it seems pretty straight forward... disconnect batteries, wires going to vglide and out.. remove and replace new the way I took it out. I saw other threads that had tips to lining up the wiper arm and such.. should be good. Again thank you

In case you're wondering the reason behind full throttle running cooler - it's because at full throttle the voltage is dumped straight to the motor for top speed. At part throttle the resistors, which make a buttload of heat and burn off excess energy so the motor spins slower, paired with the motor spinning slowly and demanding a bunch of amps, can get the Vglide into meltdown mode. Part throttle is fine to use, but for long periods of time or when going uphill it is generally a no-no. I found that slight changes to your driving habits to accommodate those weaknesses can lead to a long and healthy V-glide life.

So you're saying either WFO or stopped correct?

That's how I run my resistor cart, but for those who don't drive like a madman, as long as you avoid going slowly for long periods of time and utilize full throttle while going uphill, you'll be fine.

Also, don't try to creep through a hayfield to sneak up on someone with your resistor cart - the coils can and will start a fire. Ask me how I know...

Update... new vglide installed. Runs great. Only thing I noticed was with go pedal all the way down the contact on the arm is about at most 1/8" past top glide contact. Seems ok. Should I adjust it back for that? If so how exactly do I do that again? If not... thanks for the insight everyone!
