Cleaned up the front wheel covers .Chain fitted also fitted an anti jump chain guard .
Also as you can see I've fitted quick release clamps + left the original key switch in place
Checked the electronics seem to be ok but will need a test run first
Also as  you can see tried the quick release clamps first (ok no problem) Then the key switch (same again no problem ) then connected both up together and all ok
 (By using two batteries could double the distance)

And then fitted the back light and checked both front and back lights all ok

If you look back to my photo of the c5 with the connectors you will see the original key switch and the quick release cables ....As it's been said they there is no protection on them (if connected the wrong way round  for just a fraction of a sec it will blow the control box) So I decided to make up some new cables with a 70 amp relay + protection diode in line to protect the control box  also a switch to give more security..take a look I will be fitting them asap...

Well at last took the C5  for a test run it went well but my old battery died on me .Need to borrow one from my mate Lee ...



Fitted a new power cable with a switch and reverse protection built in and works well



Also left the original key switch in place you can now use either side or both to double your power

Will be for sale soon



Just started my next project 24 volt C5
