When I first installed the motor, I really wanted to test it. I did not have a motor controller so I when to see the guys from to borrow one of there 60Amp ESC controller. They did not have “gold bullet connectors” they had normal terminal connector.

I had to remove the “gold connectors” from the motor to change them with blue terminal connectors.

You don’t want to cut those wires, each individual wire strand is covered with thin insulation. The insulation of each tip was remove. So if you cut the wire, you will need to remove the insulation. I recommend high power soldering iron , this  will melt the insulation. I use to take a open flame to burn the insulation… not good, the wire was black and was hard to solder.

The connectors are now crimp to the wire.

I was now ready to test my super scooter.

As we speak,  I have my controller and I soldered back the originals gold connectors.
