    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.

    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.
