    Correctly wiring the Cyclone

    This is a wiring diagram for the Cyclone stock controller, the colours are respected but it's possible that the accessories are not exactly like the diagram but the connectors are still plug and play and identified. If you wish to modify or use your own accessories this can help you!

    This pic from the manufacturer shows correct wiring for the Cyclone.
    Most of this is straightforward.

    However, make note of the green/yellow wires coming from controller to motor. The wires do not match up by color as you would expect.
    This goes green to orange and yellow to green. Rather than what you might expect, green>green and yellow>orange.
    The connector can only be connected one way though, and this pic confirms this is correct.

    Also keep in mind that when wiring the Oro throttle the wires are also different colors, but still plug into the same place.
    Using the reverse function :

    if you short out the 2 pin of the reverse connector it will make the motor turn CCW but at a very low RPM.

    So if your plan is to run the cyclone on the left side and make it turn CCW, it would be better to swap the phase wires (blue / yellow) and the hall sensor wires (green / blue) this would give you the full power in reverse.

    For the phase wires, wiring ASI to Cyclone and Cyclone mini see below. For ASI to Mini you may need to change the connectors or hardwire it.

    ASI ---------- Mini Cyclone
    Phase Yellow -- Phase Black
    Phase Green -- Phase White
    Phase Blue -- Phase Red

    You have to be careful when experimenting with finding out which one of the five hall sensor wires is which (when matching a mystery controller to a non-matching motor), but...the three fat motor phase wires can be sampled in any combination without damage to the motor.

      Hey guys, two questions. Does the 40Amp controller come with an aux power for 12V or 5 to run a headlight off of? Also, I've got the keyed throttle on my Banana now and it's kind of wonky to have it tilted up backwards out of the way on the right to clear the gear shifter. It also makes it hard to see the voltage readout. How does the ORO work in comparison? I've got the battman on my the bike now but I'm thinking of taking it all off for the simplicity of the 4 bar readout on the ORO. I don't need all the data from the batt man from what I've found. Thanks.
