Controller Failure… Sort Of

controller-failureI intentionally left my bike outside during some rather heavy rains lately to make sure that the electrical system is well sealed enough to handle whatever comes my way on the road. I’m really glad I did these tests here and now because my system started failing a couple days ago, working only intermittently, then not at all. After eliminating possible throttle problems, I cracked open the motor controller and water poured out! After some clean up and drying out, I put it back together and it works again! Amazing. Lesson learned, keep the controller out of the weather and travel with a spare, just in case.
