  1. Any chance a little more info as I also ride a KS14C? Battery size? charge level? Grade of "steeper part of hill"? Your weight? Your speed beep and tilt back settings? Firmware version? I will say again that I have NEVER had a cut out on mine even V1 axle and mother board and now v2 new axle and mother board. I ride "faster" almost everyday and also climb hills at speed so this info is valuable for me and maybe others please! ukj
  2. Then why not edit your interesting post? ukj
  3. Did you mean to KPH in the ( ) ? ukj
  4. Not to be negative but informative, by using correctly the exact fitting quality phillips head screw driver, one will never strip heads. One needs to know how much force is needed to get a bolt, screw tight but not strip either the threads or head. If you find yourself lacking the good tool, do your self a favor and get one! ukj
  5. I must respectfully disagree to set at least the record straight concerning my beloved KS14C and to inform others. I did not jump curbs, no drops taken, and am not heavy at 75 kilos and my axle went bad anyway! And also did not ever get over the hip pain hurting stage to ride one foot, still not, so this might have also added stress even for super short periods of time, but it sure seems ANY EUC should be able to handle one foot riding for extended periods of time! I just advise all those with maybe even ANY E U C, but for sure any KS14C, to check the spacing between the pedal supports "pillars"? and the wheel, motor sides. AND STOP RIDING IF YOU HEAR ANY SCRAPING SOUND AND CHECK AS SAID ABOVE! It also could be very well true that some axles are and will remain just fine, while others fail. I am VERY interested to see how my warranty replacement axle holds up? ukj
  6. Other than having to replace the motor, wheel due to axle cracking I love my ks14c! It has NEVER cut out other than a few over heat tilt backs when idling for extended periods. And now having what I think is a better generation motherboard and v 1.25 firmware it seems even better. I now have the feeling form a safety point of view that it "senses" less battery and litterely tells me to slow down! ukj
  7. Because I find myself riding backwards almost half the time now does it not make sense to level, meaning no tilt forward or back? ukj
  8. Thank you very much for the last reply! I do not know and have no way of knowing if I have a 16" controller but sure seems such as GPS speeds are showing what would be the same RPMs but of course slower due to less circumference of my 14" wheel, the math works out perfectly. But the good news at least for me is that it feels stiffer, does not seem to over heat when idling and for some reason my backwards feels much better! I will now set all beeps to max as well as tilt back and live with it. I will also contact KINGSONG direct and ask about this situation. ukj
  9. Ok, I will try only (1) one more to explain my question as again the last sarcastic poster does not understand. I set my speed beeps on my KS14C V1 at 1=28 kph 2=29 kph 3=30 kph and tilt back 30 kph I checked these with a trusted GPS and found these numbers correct. I was quite happy with this set up, and by the way NEVER have had even high speed tilt back let alone high speed crash or face plant! Crusing at about 27 kph felt just fine and would slow down when hearing first beep, but did get to 31 kph when FULLY suited up just for fun ONCE! Very safe thank you very much! NOW.... As first axle bent, cracked it has a new motor, wheel and mother board with firmware v 1.25 Again as done with the first speed settings set exactly the same with new app. But controlled with GPS and then the circumference of a 16 inch wheel as compared to a 14 factored in I am thinking that at least on my EUC the settings are allowing about 88% of true speed I feel because it is using the 16 inch rpm as opposed to 14. So now when I reach 27 kph it calculates 30 which sucks! This is why I thought as I saw the app would allow up to 40 kph I could set mine higher to get to back where I was by simply increasing by 12 %. So I ask, Is there any way to know if my firmware is set to 14 or 16 inch wheel? Can it be changed? Is there a way to set the speeds higher on the latest app? Only replies that address the above specific questions will be considered please. ukj
  10. Wow normally I am very nice but now must reply. The pdf above says nothing about KS14C! And is the above poster able to read and understand English? My question is clearly stated, I am sure my Ks14C firmware is not allowing a true 30 kph as is set for a 16 inch wheel rpm as stated above, even quoted! I am quite sure that I was able to get to and slightly above 30 kph with my V1 mother board and firm ware confirmed with good gps, and now even set to the EXACT same speed settings it simply will not again confirmed with gps. ukj
  11. Again my question PLEASE! How were you able to go faster than 30 kph as you mention above? How did you know it? And for replying to some comments above. I have NEVER had a cut out with my then older V1 KS14C and now so far so good with new wheel, motor and mother board. Other than annoying over heat tilt back with V1 also never had high speed tilt back set to beep 1= 28, 2= 29, 3=30 tilt back 30 as well. I checked this with gps and was close. BUT now, When checking with gps and doing some simple math I am quite sure that the apps 30 kph max is for a 16 inch wheel NOT my 14, THUS why I want to be able to ride a TRUE 30 kph max. I have a feeling I am stuck going 30 kph RPMs for a 16 inch on my 14 inch, why I ask if it is possible to set app speed settings higher. Any and all info well taken! ukj
  12. Please help! Has anyone been able to set the "ollie?" better term "tilt back" higher than 30 kph? I have tried MANY different unlocked settings but can not seem to get more speed. As I see that you should be able to go to 40 kph I would sure like to set mine to, first beep 37 second 38 third 39 tilt back 40 How can I do this please? The best I can seem to do now is 27, 28 29 tilt back 30, even when setting 1 and 2 to 0 still can not get tilt back to go past 30 kph. ukj
  13. Just be sure to check the space between the axle pillar and the wheel, motor paying attention to the left side. If you see it is less STOP riding and get after sale warranty. I must say I am well pleased with my new motor, wheel and mother board and have carefully measured spacing and will post updates. It would seem to make sense that any jumping, curb hopping and rough bumpy off road will stress the axle at the junction MUCH more that normal riding..... ukj
  14. Up date I used a gps to verify new speed settings unlocked, I think they are for a 16 inch wheel as when I entered first beep at 27 kph it starts at 22 so I will reset to 37, 38, 39, 40 and report back. There for on my 14 they do not add up! Kinda bummed as we wanted to just once GO FAST! ukj
  15. So now trusting more and more my rebuilt KS14C with new mother board and motor,wheel. I just unlocked speed settings and see you can go to 40 kp/h. Has any one done this? I did 30 easy on my old set up and just once for fun would like to FULLY protect full face motorcycle helmet included and push it! AND, Has anyone had over heat tilt back with V 1.25 on Ks14c 680? I do not know if it is just that I am happy to have my transport toy back but feels stiffer (better) and my tight backwards circles seem MUCH easier? What reasonable speed settings are you using, I used to set 1st beep 27 2nd 28 3rd 29 tilt back 30, does this seem reasonable again? Thanks ukj
