What amp fuse do I need for a Sakura s200?

I bought replacement batteries (3 x 12v/12ah in series). It has a 200w motor. All works fine until I load it.

    The fuse within the battery box blows when loaded use (all works fine until you load the bike)... I've trialed 1amp thru 7.5amp... Similar systems have 30a fuses for a 500w motor... Any ideas what size this needs?

That is an unusual value. You could try a 25 amp fuse instead as this is a more common value. RS Components or other electronics parts sellers should have them.

Ezip 500 won't run : new batteries fully charged but it still shows low battery light...what else could be wrong

i'm having the same problem. checked fuses and both are good. going through the wiring harness to look for shorts. have a bad feeling the micro controller died, that is the little plastic box with metal fins on it under the seat post behind the batteries ******* to the frame. i can bypass the micro-controller and connect one 12 volt battery directly to motor and runs full speed. somehow it is wired with 2 - 12 volt batteries in series to give 24 volts and them the processor cuts back down to 12 volts to run the motor. not sure why this is engineered this way? still working the problem. what sucks so far is that the micro controller is encased in resin so it is virtually non repairable.
* Update added.
Found these wiring harness for sale online scooter stores and on ebay. I replaced mine with some intermediate level adapting the harness to my model scooter and this includes some soldering and wire splicing changing power connector heads off old harnedd to new harness to fit bike. Works great.

Ebike in need more power adding

You can add two 12 V 12AH battery in series. The total power now would be 720 W and your motor can bear it.

I have a sakura s200 electric bike can i make it any faster ?

Change out the gears with a higher ratio that turns the wheels faster for the same motor RPM. Another method is find a motor that has a higher rpm capability.

Sakura S305 electric bike, no speed control

I'm not familiar with that make/model, but if it has a brushed motor then it is likely that you have a faulty controller module. Most brushed motors have just 2 wires running to them from the controller.

Ebike in need of more power by adding batteries..

A 250W electric motor will only pull about 5.1 amps at 48V. The lead acid batteries that come with the bike are more than capable of 5A of output without dropping voltage. Therefore, wiring a second pack in parallel will not do anything to increase the available torque or power from the motor. All it will do is increase the time/distance you can ride the bike on a single charge.

Also, you should take care that wiring lead acid batteries in parallel is not always safe, especially if you are wiring newer batteries in parallel with older batteries. A common failure mode is for one of the cells (there are several in each battery) to short circuit. For a series-wired pack, this only decreases the voltage, but if you have two packs in parallel, you'll end up with one pack having a lower voltage than the other, and it will draw tremendous current out of the other pack, possibly causing an explosion and great bodily harm.

If the performance changed suddenly after hitting a bump, then you probably broke something in the hub. If the motor has multiple windings, it's possible one of them became disconnected from the power source. This would decrease the available torque and power. I would look into having it repaired.

Be careful, and ride safely.
