Auto Draft


Welcome to the Electric Motorcycle Conversion Techniques Course. Participants will be able to :

  • Convert their own Gasoline motorcycle to electric motorcycle.
  • Recognize what parts are used in electric motorcycle industry.
  • Estimate costs of converting your motorcycle.
  • Learn to use a range of tools used in the electric vehicle industry such as a clamp multimeter, battery resistance meter, soldering iron, lithium-ion battery charger, spot welder.
  • Understand basic electricity e.g. voltage, current , resistance and power, Ohms Law. Kirchhoff’s Current Law.
  • Battery design and safety.
  • Battery charging and testing.
  • Battery pack building.
  • Estimate the size of a battery pack to suit the EV.
  • Choose the correct spot welder.
  • Describe the functions performed by a battery management system BMS.
  • Choose a suitable motor for the vehicle.
  • Choose a suitable controller for the vehicle.
  • Describe the functions of a motor controller.
  • Choose a suitable charger for the battery pack, fixed or adjustable.
  • Describe the charging techniques for home charging and public charging (EVSE).
  • Understand the relationship between motor RPM and speed of the vehicle using simple calculations.
  • This course will provide you with sufficient knowledge to either work for an employer or start-up your own business.It is a very much hands-on course so be ready to get your hands dirty or just sit back and enjoy the ride (pun intended).I have converted my own motorcycle and it is a joy to ride. People turn their heads and smile when I pass them.

    I am hoping you will start-up your own business as I think there is not enough people trained outside the electric vehicle industry. We are fast approaching the time where petrol and diesel engines will be a thing of the past and there will be a shortage of skilled staff.
