Absolutely Agreed!! I am a biker & usually quite violently Against being told what to do or think. My purpose (if I really have purpose) behind this build was to test myself to see if I could figure out how to create it from ‘scratch’ myself (maybe a little bit to have something in my stable for when ‘they’ take away my gas & amo).Agreed. I am not against electric bikes or cars, they could be a lot of fun. I am against being told I have to own one. I quite enjoyed watching the IOM electric TT documentary a few years ago. Good stuff.
Very interesting… that’s actually one of the reasons I’m changing it back to a fire breather! My batteries went up & cheapest replacement is $1700 & I found a 1200 cc for $1300.I'm not against electric motorcycles of other vehicles per se.
However, I'm very concerned about the price of batteries should it or they need replacement.
I read a story about a e-car which needed a battery replacement and the price of it was more than the value of the vehicle.
Who ever told you that part of it is inaccurate. They are hazmat only because they are a fire hazard. And they are recycled, they are very valuable as a raw material. Especially automotive lithium batteries because they contain a lot of material.On top of that there is a problem with disposal of lith batteries! I had to pay 500 to get rid of them as they are hazmat that is not recycled. Not to mention all the pollution generated in the making of batteries- aka the green farce!
Li-ion batteries are made of materials such as cobalt, graphite and lithium which are considered critical minerals. Critical minerals are raw materials that are economically and strategically important to the U.S., have a high risk of their supply being disrupted and for which there are no easy substitutes. When these batteries are disposed of in the trash, we lose these critical resources outright.
Well, where I live nobody would take them or ship them for less than $500.Who ever told you that part of it is inaccurate. They are hazmat only because they are a fire hazard. And they are recycled, they are very valuable as a raw material. Especially automotive lithium batteries because they contain a lot of material.
