    New Dude Hello!

    Hello all, I've been on the ebike scene for about 5 yrs now..... with stealth, sondors, then some home built units.

    Current Stable:
    Stealth Fighter for my wife
    Flux (futr) home built Beta 2500watt single track machine
    and latest purchase - sur ron X from Luna-tic-cycle guys. Just getting the sur-ron dialed in to my liking.... seat risers, riser bars, etc.... love the tq and hill climb capability of the sur-ron.

    Cheers from Houston,

    Oh and have to chuckle.... I DID unbox the sur ron like a 5 yr old and rode it down the trails....... after which point I broke the pedal crank, and nukes the pedal bearings.... so you should read the instructions..... and and got a flat too.

    ** I discovered a 220 lb man should not fly over a 3' jump whilst standing on the cheapo plastic pedal kit with no lube!!! glad I did not plant my right foot into the ground.... the pedal gave away gracefully as if to say.... we got you this one time :)

    New aftermarket cranks on order - found these unicycle cranks on amazon for cheap -

    Also found a replacement bearing kit on amazon -

    And putting some decent pedals on her -

    packed the bottom bracket bearings with quality axle grease..... then put it on a vise..... and use blue lock tite on the end caps..... then hooked up a 1/2" driver and pushed the rpm up on the shaft.... then re-tq the bearing again....... all bedded in and smooth now.

    Jeff what’s up, I knew I recognized your screen name. RAS X2 right?


      Hey Jason. Did we ride the gen 2 x2 at world finals???


        No, unfortunately Ive never had a opportunity to pilot a Gen2. I know Rob and saw the build a couple different times while in the infancy stages. I also followed the history of the ski through your ownership @ PWCT as well. That’s why your screen name jumped out at me. Sill riding?


          Hate to say that ras motor never ran right. I ended up putting a nice limited sxr 800 in it and it ran great!

          sold all my boats

          looking for a limited sxr800 for next summer.


            I remembered reading about the engine swap and related issues. Anyways have you been enjoying the Sur Ron? Great to see around.


              Hello and welcome

                peace, SOG
