  2. Hi My name is Julien, I'm joining the community of EUC user pretty soon (just ordered a KS-18XL), never stepped on one before ^^ I'm just gonna tell you my life and explain how I came to considering getting an EUC I'm a French Citizen who fell in love with a girl from Arizona (USA), we've been engaged for quite some time now and planned to live together in 2020... but you know, world burned to ashes, everything and crazy, etc... (I promise there's a link between that and me getting a EUC). Start might get easier for us soon and I'm thinking about my new "life" after moving to Arizona...

  6. Not sure if this is on topic but I'd just like to let you all know that I just attempted the motor change in my wheel. Disassembly went fine. However my replacement motor had a longer cable and couldn't fit snugly along the side up the wheel. When i reinserted the handle, the sharp edges at the bottom of the handle frame damaged the motor cable so now I got naked copper showing. Furthermore the motherboard casing is a bitch to put back. Think of stuck drawer and multiply by a thousand. Some screws got damaged there as well (no way to get those out without a drill or something).

  7. 84V charge port has 4 pins, 67.2V charge port has 3 pins. You can see it immediately if you look at the charge port. 512Wh means 84V, too. Unlike ebike batteries, EUCs go by maximum voltage, so 84V (or 67V) is the max you would see.

  8. “If it doesn’t work, force it. If it breaks, it needed fixing anyway.” This is very bad advice. 🤭

  9. to answer my own question and possibly help others: i just resolved my own problem. if you have (3) three flashing LEDs in the rear brake light unit, and none of the other LEDs work on the front or back (including the front headlight), and you are unable to cycle through any LED modes or the headlight modes (steady/flashing/off), but you ARE able to turn the EUC on (gotway rs19 at least), then whether you get the gyroscope to engage (balanced wheel on startup) or NOT, it is a calibration issue. to resolve it, do a no load test by lifting the euc up and allowing the wheel to spin fre

  15. The RS is not super waterproof... as you found out the hard way. Check out this video I'll link, this guy water tested the RS and the results turned out interesting.. Water easily enters through the trolley handle. Best way to totally avoid this in to duct tape over it and not use the trolley. Not a problem unless you take the wheel into a store or something. Water also can easily enter near the "RS" logo on the left side of the wheel, same with the two speakers on the right side. You could use silicone or maybe door weather proofing strips to block water from entering. Those t

  17. Well now, I guess Congratulations are in order...in more ways than one! Arizona is certainly a very different place than France but one does get to ride an EUC all year round. Some here regard the KS18XL very highly so its should be a good choice. Welcome to the forum.

  18. congrats on your new mten3! i have been contemplating it as well, same model as yours, was hoping to find it in black but i dont think they make it in black for the 512wh version...not sure. let us know how you like it so far and how you use it etc ------ as far as beeps at specific speeds go, you can do that on the EUCworld app (if you use an android phone). hope that helps

  21. LOL not even close to true, generally you try and land on your feet, but if you screw up the approach speed it is much like coming off The front of an EUC, there is a limited speed you can run off after which you end up on your face and that is before you consider the odd messed up take off that can see you rolling down a steep rocky hill side, I paraglided for 12 years and my helmet saved my life more than once

  22. If you can purchase/ borrow a set of plastic auto body trim removal tools you might be able to pry (nudge) the dial cw/ccw. You’ll probably need to grind the plastic pry tool(s) to adequately fit inside the dial’s channel. Do you know which direction it’s currently bottomed out?

  26. Ran into some police officers while running errands this morning. They were very excited about the wheel. If law enforcement supports it I am not going to worry about the local mental cases and their complaints.

  27. The rebound adjustment stiffness shouldn't be effected by how high the air pressure is. You should be able to adjust it with the shock fully pressurized. When I first got mine I couldn't get it to turn either, it was just a case of fat fingers not able to get a grip in the small space. Once I found the right angle to get in there it would move. Worse case take out the shock and try to free it up by hand. Just before you go using any tools on it, make sure you're not right up against either end of the adjustment. Forcing it the wrong way would be bad.

  29. Eh, this is a bad take. A small minority of the RS and V11 have bearing issues. Most are fine. My RS has been fine. Speedyfeet’s broadcast yesterday he says of the last batch of V11s five had bearing issues they had to fix. The rest were all ok. I haven’t kept up with recent S18s and the EX is just too new to say. Speedyfeet makes the great point that those without problems aren’t really going to be vocal about it on the internet. Usually having a bad experience is what gets you riled up to post, and that’s what you’ll read on here. The Veteran hasn’t been without issues either.

  30. I don't know the perception of EUC in SF Bay Area, but in Paris it seems to be a mix of Nerdy/Circus/Dangerous vibes which is often dominant for the moment. However i see more and more people riding it, so the niche market is growing

  39. For me the pads help with some things like going up steep inclines, braking hard or leaning into them for tight turns but the biggest point of having them is that I get a point of reference and can easily feel where my legs are positioned on the wheel at all times, for me this is a huge thing and makes it feel like I'm more grounded to the wheel, in some situations this is a godsend like if I hit a bump at high speed and my feet moved a bit on the pedals it's so easy to get your bearings again and reposition like nothing happened.

  42. And it would've been a reasonable suggestion. "Should" or "shouldn't" is not a suggestion. It's an instruction. And it's not your place to instruct which activities someone should or shouldn't do. It's a bit like people saying to you that you shouldn't have started running, it's bad for your knees. And while I know it's been a strong focus for your life for a long time, I'm still confident that EUCs have made a more fundamental change for the quality of my life than running to your's. "Man, that's risky!" Sure, I'd have no problem hearing that, 'cos they'd be right. And it's ex

  44. What I called single-minded was to say that fragile people or people in a bad physical shape should not ride EUC. Because that is directly saying that I shouldn’t ride. And if you haven’t noticed, I’m pretty active here, every day sharing what I’ve learned during the 30000km about EUCs, riding, tires, repairs and mods with everybody. Why? Because EUCs have transformed my life into something with immeasurably more value, fun, social contacts, and of course physical shape. Etc. And you are saying I shouldn’t ride? If I may be frank, screw you. I have never said that any kind of riding

  45. I used to ride without a helmet but things have changed. I was going down a hill at 50km/h on my 16x and a cop pulled me over. He said "geez mate you were flying down that hill on that thing, you're gonna kill yourself". He had never seen or heard of an EUC before so he didn't say anything about the legalities of riding them. But he gave me a warning for not wearing a helmet. No fine. Since then I started taking my helmet on every ride but you would often find me holding the helmet in my hands as I speed past on my Sherman. Once I even almost dropped the helmet and then nearly fell

As mentioned they aren't optimal for the deep South but then, one can literally just wear only board shorts (or not😳) inside. With full airflow zipouts, its actually not that bad so long as one's moving. Far's looks goes, I find the mx armor jackets pretty ridonculous as well. As you say, this is likely the best for an all weather suit with full protection & likely, you wouldn't even damage it if you eat it on EUC wipes. If ther
