I used a strapping tool and strapped the top batteries together as a block.
I moved on to the control box that will house the head board for the BMS and a solid state relay that will disconnect the bike if a cell goes above maximum.
I needed to mount a small power supply outside the box, I thought I could get 12v from the bike but that proved to be involved. The small supply is only in use during charging to power the BMS mater board.
The shot shows all the led's on, but after a few minutes they are all flashing at random, short flash means all ok.
I had charge indication but the bike didn't start charging, I found the solid state relay not tuned on due to reverse polarity on the input.
I corrected my wiring and it worked great.
I felt that I had more power than before when rolling the throttle while cruising.
