I think the take away I got from bike shop forums was an issue of battery fires at the worst end of the spectrum, and endangerment from improper installations at the the other end. I don't about the Us, but in so called canada there's also liability issues if systems are tuned to exceed.30km under motor power, either throttle or assist. It's worth checking your municipal as well as state and federal ebike codes. 🤷‍♀️

Hello all,

We are trying to determine if we need insurance (beyond general liability) to cover e-bike conversions on used bikes.  Not totally sure if general liability insurance would cover this and I assume it may depend on the carrier. 

I'm also not totally clear why there would be any difference between this and a normal refurbished bike we sell, in terms of liability.

Any insights would be appreciated!
