Power drain

The big ol’ resistor that straddles the two high voltage poles on the connector is problematic. Although it only lets a small amount of power bypass the connector it is enough to slowly drain the battry if left unatended. So I need to pop in battery isolator switch on the positive cable comming out of the cells to cut the power completely when the bike is not being used.

A regular 48v 200A isolator is fine. Thinking about mounting it on front of the controller cover along with the key switch and the inertia switch. Plenty of space under there. just need to make the vented cover hinge for easy access or redesign the cover to expose them… maybe.
