Two more pics
Well done man! That looks awesome. I am going to eventually mount mine like you did. FYI the screws on my side panel are small phillips.
I was looking at your pics, I think your front forks are on backwards. I am not sure it matters.
Agreed. Gussets go forward. Forks are on backward. If they care or not is another matter.
It affects trail (which affects stability) so they should be installed the correct way.
Good eye guys. This is how the bike came. No wonder it's a bit twitchy at higher speeds.
Got to test new battery over two days of camping and wow. Little one can't kill it. Has been riding around a lot and still one light left.
So I turned the fork around and all of the sudden there is a lot more battery clearance. Handling will most definitely benefit because the bike will be more stable.
I began the conversion to a dewalt battery and while testing, the bike ran for a second. Now all I am getting is a flashing red light with beeping. The manual says that is because of heat and to reset which I tried. I let it sit over night and it is still doing the same thing. I checked fuse and it looks fine. Anybody ran into this issue? If so, how do I fix it? I even went back to original battery and have the same problem.
Maybe contact Stacyc...don't mention the DeWalt thing!
After a little more research, I've determined that the motor and/or ESC burned up. There are some people that have gone through 3 motors this year. I remember the bike acting weird at my son's last race a couple weekends back which I thought was the battery. I called STACYC and they didn't know what was going on so I just ordered a new motor. I'm not going to put the panels on for his next race so the motor can get more air.
Tell us more about races. I signed up my little guy for Moto Beach Classic next Saturday but don't know what to expect.
We just race locally with the organization that puts on our offroad/cross country style races. It is called T.O.R.N. Racing. They have a 10 minute STACYC race and a 1 lap strider race for the kids. Here's one of my son's races from earlier this year.
That is so great that they have a class for Stacyc. I wish we had something similar locally.
Has anyone had fuse popping issues. My little girl keeps popping fuses and we can't seem to figure out why.
The Harley dealer here had a Stacyc demo today and my little buddy had a great time. He’s had a PW50 for about a year now but never asks to ride it really. I think the Stacyc is better in our situation. No carb to keep clean is a major bonus. The 16 was a lot faster than I was expecting, even in training mode, I was jogging along next to my son so he didn’t wipe out on the asphalt.
It I way better than the much heavier traditional alternatives. Personally, seeing orange with bar and shield logos on there is utterly repulsive.
Stacyc is putting up great event at Fox headquarters next Saturday.
However you wanna feel but it was a really cool event they put on. Everyone was really friendly and welcoming. I wouldn’t have been able to have my son try one out without their having put together the demo.
