  1. Absolutely. Drop any other questions you have. I know people are going to want to know the firmware versions and whatnot too.
  2. Edit: lol oops @xiiijojjo posted the same one. ---------- This looks like a pretty good video that walks through the bearing replacement process from a couple of guys in the Seattle crew. (Btw lots of good offroading vids on this channel too.)
  3. Who else is waiting for their wheel from this batch? The anticipation is driving me crazy, so I decided to post about it. This is your batch if eWheels sent you a message today saying the container just docked. I also think it would be interesting to compare notes on any improvements or pervasive issues, once they roll in
  4. Do you ride in "strong mode" on the Sherm? I'm hoping for something like the "experient mode" (lol) on the KS.
  5. Do either of you tilt your pedals on the 18XL? (Since you both have them.) Tilting back 1 or 2 degrees feels great on it. I like it for the same reason that I believe you said you like tilting forward: it gives me easier access to acceleration and just feels easier on the feet. The idea of tilting forward gives me the willies for some reason. I wonder if that's a matter of stance.. or wheel.
  6. 18XL is my current wheel and my current (naked) weight is about the same as yours. I used the ride about 42 PSI but now 38 feels perfect. I have a Sherman on the way (well... in December) so I'm curious what pressure your running on yours if you got it.
  7. For foot arch pain, I find that stiffer soles (boots for instance), alternating heel lifts, and carving all help. With more experience I depend more and more on the heel lifts and less on the shoes and carving. I can't say that I've experienced calf pain. I do get some stiffness in my quads, but it's probably because they are getting a work out.
  8. Has anyone ridden both and can compare? Im particularly interested in hill climbing ability, off the line acceleration, low speed control, and breaking. I guess that is usually summed up as "torque." I'm curious if the v11 is mostly a comfort and safety upgrade from my 18xl. On paper they both have 2200W motors, but of course that doesnt tell the whole story.
  9. How does the motor compare to the 2200W KingSongs? I was curious about torque / responsiveness / hill climbing.
  10. Well... I did it and ordered an MSP Since this is the KingSong forum I should mention that I still love my 18XL
  11. Nice to know what to check. I have always wondered how to tell what my safety margin was. I usually log in EUC World (and I see that inverter load value) but unfortunately not on the days that I got beeps. Definitely three beeps are what I heard. Except for the crash... I may have missed the last beep as I was catching air 😆 Thank you for asking. Yes, it was very minor. My knee and wrist guards let me slide without feeling much impact, but one elbow got some road rash. So now when Im not wearing the moto jacket the elbow pads always go on. Yikes. Good to know.
  12. Im loving hard mode on 2.02. Coupled with a slight pedal tilt (-1), the access to torque is fun but... kind of scary. I'vebeen getting more of the tri-beep (not sure what that is... overlean warning??) and I was even thrown off my wheel from what I assume was an overlean from going hard from a stop, as I like to do. I need to figure out how to dial this back in a bit, but medium mode is mushy for me and not as comfortable for my hilly neighborhood.
  13. App shows the model as KS-18LH App shows -3.0 A and it is holding steady. I am using a 5A fast charger from ewheels, and the digital readout shows that it's at ~5.2A. Motherboard is 1.3 Original motor was 2000 W, I replaced it with 2200 W
  14. I heard a high pitched sound for several minutes before I gave up and restarted the wheel. The prompts are still there, just as before. Maybe I need to wait longer? I recorded the process with a full minute of the high pitched sounds, but I let this go for another 10 minutes or so before giving up. I'm not sure I'd this is the "dididi" sound or if something else should be playing. Could someone who has done this successfully take a look and compare? (Note that the high pitched sound just persists, you likely won't want to listen to the whole thing.)
  15. I got the same advice from Jason @ ewheels and upgrading to 2.0 firmware fixed it. As a temporary workaround until 2.0 came, I would just make sure to always be in a little bit of motion, even when holding onto a post or wall for support.
