HOW TO Build Custom DIY Electric Skateboard! – [Part 3][Battery Enclosure/Ride Test][Dual 6374]

Here’s part 3 of HOW TO Build Custom DIY Electric Skateboard. In part 3, we finish up the skateboard by installing everything inside the battery enclosure and doing some touch-up like hot gluing charging port, and drilling holes for the battery enclosure.

After that, we test out the new board by taking it for a few miles around the neighborhood, double-checking every mile that nothing is coming off, making sure everything is running smooth.

As many of you requested so I wanted to make a DETAILED TUTORIAL for you guys on HOW TO build a custom DIY electric skateboard. This video may be long but I wanted to cover all the little things that are involved in building an electric skateboard such as trying to make things that don’t fit work. Also, I really wanted to show you guys that you can build any kind of custom DIY electric skateboard so you can build a custom board just the way you want it. Whether you want to use 40-inch deck, 120mm cloud wheels, special trucks like Haggyboard trucks, or custom pulley with bigger gearing, building an electric skateboard is fun but there are always hurdles and sometimes you have to get creative to make things work. A dremel is your best friend and I hope this tutorial helps you build your next custom DIY electric skateboard.

How to Ride Steep Hills on Electric Skateboard!

In this video, I show you the basics of how to ride steep hills(like San Francisco hills) on an electric skateboard. If you have never ridden an electric skateboard on steep hills, this video should help you.

First, make sure you have an electric skateboard with enough power to go up steep hills and also enough power to brake. If you have a single hub or belt motor, most likely you will NOT be able to make up steep hills. I do highly recommend dual belt motors for steep hills as they are “geared” and have more torque than hub motors. I would stay away from hub motors if you want to ride steep hills daily as they overheat easily and voltage sag will cause them to slow down much quicker than belt setup.

How to Install New Wheels/Belts on DIY Electric Skateboard! [DrESkateboard]

In this video, I show you how to install new wheels/belts on your DIY electric skateboard. If pulley size on the new wheels like shown in the video, you will need to buy a slightly bigger belt or slightly smaller.

I was using 250 5M belts but they were already pretty tight with motors so I ordered new 260 5M belts and they fit perfectly for the new bigger pulley on the new wheels.
