- Add Torque Bar/s if necessary
2. The Battery:
- Attach Rack / Bracket
- Connect plug to motor
- Slide & lock on battery
3. The Controls & Connection:
- Remove handlebar grips
- Find the best way to mount Throttle, Brake Levers / Sensor & display
- Mount the controller in the supplied bag
- Run the cables neatly along the bike, using cable-ties
Full detailed instructions (produced by REV, not by some foreign suppliers) are provided with all our kits. And we have installation videos like this one:
All bikes are different, and many bikes will present the odd barrier to a simple install – a practical problem-solving mind can come in handy, as with any DIY project. And of course you can call us with any questions 🙂
We sometimes run Conversion Workshops around Melbourne, for those without the required tools or practical skills to embark on a conversion alone. These sessions will help you have your bike set-up within a day, in most cases.
We also deliver our Electric Bike Mechanics Training Courses to skill people in the art of E-Bike Mechanics. The course allows you to undertake your own conversion, and learn all about the workings of ebikes generally – a must if you’re looking to get into the industry.
