Brammo Empulse / Re: I let the smoke out of my charger. Now what?
« Last post by trox_355 on August 27, 2016, 08:25:46 AM »
An update.

I contacted Eltek a few weeks ago and they returned a few days later with some bad news:  They neither supply nor service this charger, anymore.

If you believe the on-board charger (Eltek Valere) call them up, go to the website eltek.com and start a RMS (some kind of remanufacture claim wether it is under warranty or not). If you mail it back, they will repair any of their equipment whether they still make it or not! I just found this out after having my empulse in shop for 3 months.

Willss01, I'd be curious who you talked to out there.  I phoned their service department and the person I talked to took a few days to research and verify they can no longer support this charger.

After finding out there was no service option, I cracked open the cast aluminum housing and spotted some fried electronics inside.  Self-repair on that is getting outside of my comfort zone.

Does anybody have access to the Polaris parts fiche and know if they're sourcing this charger from a different manufacturer?  Has Polaris changed the design of the heatsink plate on the Victory Empulse to accept a different form factor of charger?

The only online source I see for a new one is from Evolve Electrics.  Going that route, I'd still need to splice on the J1772 pins and Anderson connectors for the DC output.

Maybe the parts went to Victory? Hope there so for when the rest of us have a need. Sent you an e-mail

Please let the forum know if this deal works out.  I always like to know when the forum brings people together.

Contacted Brammo directly, they got nada.

Thanks for your post, I now know to keep away from exhausts. Maybe I'll use epoxy primers/paints, clearcoats to try to add some kind of protection. =/
I've kept a 2014 Empulse, stock front fender as a spare, might be just what you need =)

Are you willing to part with it? I'd be happy to buy it from you. Hit me up rstrakovsky@gmail.com.

Brammo Empulse / Re: First Empulse theft incident?

Oh my gosh, so sorry to belatedly learn about your loss!  Coincidentally, a Seattle-area Zero owner also had his headlight assembly stolen around the same time.  His bike was also white (custom wrap).  Both bikes have the same headlight, so maybe it wasn't a coincidence.  Do you want me to put you in contact with him?

OK, thanks for the info.

Damn this means I need to find a solution for the charging. Think I'll go for a cable called Spark (6/10/16 Amp, 230V, Schuko) which meets my needs of max 10amp (would most likely only charge at 6 amp during night).

Well luckily I'll ride cheap after but still, 550 means I need to ride about 5000km before break even... :) Well that will be done within a year anyway.

Unbelievable! Sorry this happened to you. B hope you're able to find a replacement.

Also, that 10% doesn't reduce the money you pay to take home the bike.  It is an amount that you claim on your federal tax return document next year to reduce the amount of tax you owe.
