I admit I'm new to e-bikes.
I brought this BBSHD kit a little time ago.
And while its been fun,
it appears its not running at full potential.

Its using the Luna Wolf V2 52v Battery Pack.
Testing the throttle, the display without rider load, reads 26 mph.
That seems kinda low for a 1k wat motor. I'd expect something closer to 40 mph.

So I have not messed with the programing at all. Should I be?
Also is the battery watts just too low for the motor?
Does this actually need their custom controller to even get close to 40 mph?

Help me understand why the motor appears to be running weaker than I expected?
What does "Hot Rod Program (For Off Road Use Only)" Actually mean?
