the controller is completely sealed up with poured-in silicone, it seems. i read about others that have had their controller electronics exposed, so as to mod them with shunts or wires or whatever. not possible for me to get the controller i have apart without damaging it, it seems. covering it would defeat the heat-sink properties of the finned case. researching the ebay voltmeters you pointed me to, most of them claim the power supply voltage can vary as well as the voltage being measured. i had an old voltmeter i salvaged from a solar controller, and ran power supply up to 12 volts, but burnt it out at 24 volts. i find that i am going most places on 1/4 throttle, now. and if the yk43b low voltage cuts off, due to my twisting the throttle a bit more, i let go of it, and start off slow, and get a few more miles out of it. it's the voltage sag caused by the high amp draw that does it, i work around it by keeping all the high tension wires as short as possible, using all 8 gauge wire.. holding out for that gas gauge. in a day or two, i will test range, i figure i will have more range due to the increased efficiency of the new motor as compared to my old wornout one..
