Are the GBS batteries Waterproof?
they're not. they have caps, but there are still holes where the bus bars and cables go through.
I made lexan covers for mine that provide a better seal than the original caps. Not water *proof*, but seems to keep rain out pretty well. I've ridden through the rain and haven't had any problems.
I just found out that my motor didn't come with a key......... where can I get one?
Most decent hardware stores carry key stock, I think they even have it in the bins at the box stores like Home Depot and Lowes here in the states. If you can't source locally, places like McMaster Carr or similar usually have all the mechanical bits you could dream of.
Farm/Ranch supply stores too. Keys are used for all kinds of motors and gears.
official version 3.0 of the battery mounts

It lowers and it moves back the center of gravity.
the battery mount will be closed off, offering waterproofing, witch is required by my government.
I`m designing my electrical syste,, and I was wondering If I could feed the main contactor with the kill switch, after the dc-dc convertor, So I would`t need a secpndary 12v relay to close the contactor.
