    Adding a hub motor to make 2wd

    I have a Juiced air bike & I'm going to add a front hub motor to make it dual Drive. I have a Juiced bikes 650w wondering if if I add 500 w front motor if it would make it go faster. separate battery separate controller just adding to my Juiced air is this going to make it faster?

    I have decided to add a 1500watt front hub motor conversion kit to a 50cc rear friction drive gas honda.
    Initially I was concerned about the freewheel in the electric hub. With geared hubs the concern over cogging has been eliminated.
    My concern now is the cyntrifical clutch of the Honda engine. The Honda engine does not always enter into freewheel while going down hills...let alone being pulled by an electrical front hub.
    We'll see and update my success.

      A stock front hub motor kit will pull you to about 28mph, the legal max limit in the USA - some localities are slower. There are modifications that will allow it to go faster.
