  1. Created a easy to build wooden stand. 1 piece of 2 x 12 lumber cut to 16" length for the base. 2 pieces of 2 x 6 lumber cut to 11 1/2" long for side braces. Four 3" L brackets with 16 screws mounted between the base and side braces. Six 3" wood deck screws mounted through the bottom up in each side brace.
  2. buell47, I have tried both of your suggestions but without any success. I still assume I just don't have something set correctly. Any other suggestions?
  3. I have been using this Android App for a while on my KS16x and like it a lot. One time while using it, audio from the app would tell me my battery level and speed every few minutes. I really liked that but have no idea how it go initiated and since that one time have not been able get that output. I have looked at some of the settings for the app and tried a few settings but are not getting the audio. Does anyone have details on how to set it up?
  4. dmethvin, thanks for your response and it would be good to get together to share/try wheels. I run just under 30 psi in my 16X. What pressure in the 16S are you using? Send me an email to silverwingshg@gmail.com and lets see about hooking up.
  5. Thank you mrelwood. That is the best write up on the topic and I had done a lot of searches regarding EUC wobbles. Most things I had found indicated it was mostly rider induced and that the rider has to learn how to compensate. Luckily I have only had it real bad a few times and wasn't thrown and was able to slow down and regain control. I will try carving next time I get a moderate wobble to see how that helps.
  6. I have of course placed my EUC's on a secure stand and started them and watched them spin to observe any wobble of the wheel. The KS 16X had a bad wobble (which I took a video of) and Jason from eWheels provided a new tire and tube. This improved it some but still had wobble so Jason sent a new wheel! This has a little wobble but is tolerable which is why I asked is it inherent in EUC design. My Ninebot S1 which I learned to ride on but don't use much, spins real nice on the stand but last time I tried to ride it, it wobbled a lot. That would imply I was the cause.
  7. First off is side to side wobble inherent in EUC design? If you have a perfectly manufactured rim/wheel and good round tire and tube mounted properly should there be any side to side wobble? I of course know that rims/wheels can be less than perfect, tires can be not round or defective in production, tires can be mounted un-evenly and these things can cause a EUC to wobble at different speeds. I have also read a lot that wobbles are rider induced. So what causes side to side wobbles? How do we prevent or control it? When ever I get a bad wobble, I immediately slow down and get it stable again but are at a loss as to why it happened. Are there any brands/models of EUC that super stable without wobbles?
  8. You need to peel back the outer edges of foam to get to the screws. 2 screws in top and 4 in front/back sides.
  9. A fairly easy to build wooden stand for a King Song 16x. 1 piece of 2 x 12 lumber cut to 16" length for the base. 2 pieces of 2 x 6 lumber cut to 11 1/2" long for side braces. Four 3" L brackets with 16 screws mounted between the base and side braces. Six 3" wood deck screws mounted through the bottom up in each side brace.
  10. Would you be so kind as to provide the dimensions/specs? Please.
  11. I have a s1 also which was modified by software to unlock the speed to s2 and then to 30 kph. I do get wobbling some times (not always) and was very interested in your experience/documentation. Both of the manuals for the s1 and s2 indicate setting tire pressure at 35 psi but you indicated setting it at 40 psi and the tire indicated max of 50 psi. What pressure are you setting the tire at? I know at one time my pressure was 27 and I was getting a lot of wobbling and also if my feet toe position is not equal. Curious about your comment. -John
