    This kit has everything you need to convert your bike into an electric assist. Only a few minor issues. I took one star off for no liner installed for the tire rim. This is important as some of the rough edges were not fully sanded down where the spoke holes were drilled. Easy to fix before inflating the inner tube. Battery bag is just the right size for large capacity 12v SLA. I went with an 18AH model. Battery bag could be improved with the addition of a carrying strap to make taking the bag indoors easier given the weight of SLA batteries for charging purposes and protecting from temperature extremes or theft. The battery power lines are not labeled as indicated in the instruction manual. There was a warning in the book that the warranty would be invalidated if user hooked up wrong. Since the wires aren’t labeled I could hardly see how the end user would be at fault if one did mix up the polarity as there is no real way to test which is which. Fortunately one of the lines is fused which is typically placed on the positive line making it easier to identify.

    These are great kits, if you know what you are doing. Batteries NOT included, they almost never are, because it’s really the most important part and prices vary widely depending on the capacity and battery technology you choose.

    The promise was 5 star. Upon opening the box, found that it did not include the battery. I called the company and they stated that it was NOT included. I thought I could deal with that, unt I found the battery to power a thousand watt motor was double the purchase price of the motor, over $600. After reading the meager instructions with bare wires to connect to battery, I decided to give up, mail it back and take the $50 mailing cost as a lesson learned on mail order items
