  1. I think that because there isn't any demand for it no one is starting the process of getting approval to import it from the office of devices. And you can't ship large batteries on planes anymore so you can't just fly it in and if you bring it by boat the customs will confiscate it. Really bad situation.
  2. Thank you. Yes I will. Next job is to wrap it with chrome sticker ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜
  3. Hey all, Unfortunately I live in a country that does not allow to import EUCs. This is why if you want to get an EUC you will need to buy it from someone that managed to smuggle in part by part. It is almost impossible to find an EUC that can get to more than 20 kmh not to mention a new one. Luckily, 2 months ago (after waiting a year) I managed to buy a used KS18L. In that time I wasn't in a position to assess the condition of the EUC and was just excited to buy one. 2 months passed and now I feel very comfortable with it and able to understand how it should feel. This is what I saw and felt: 1. The wheel was more aligned to the right side than the left one: https://share.icloud.com/photos/0G3etVuk6NHYm0iwt9xXe799w#Home 2. The padels were little bit wobbly 3. The rim was dented: https://share.icloud.com/photos/0FXWTKTM_swp8B1oATS3BTcSg#Home 4. And the biggest problem, the wheel made a chirping sound and vibration every time it finished a spin: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1mc_MtEH1Xr5OSUzDuVHyNlwfFeaCYY_v/view?usp=drivesdk Because there isn't any lab here that I can bring the wheel to it, I decided to open the wheel and see what is going on, this is what I found: 1. The plastic where the padels arms is cracked: https://share.icloud.com/photos/0FaPrdo11tscMj17KMRBhM3dw 2. The plate that connected to the engine was little bit loose and the padels arms had some gap to the plate: https://share.icloud.com/photos/0BKg1jidL2PqC-fWNY_3iDFyQ 3. The pivot of the engine was missing a bit of oil: https://share.icloud.com/photos/0JlmTWxk9n7dO5JLVznH8-RMg So after finding out all of this we (my father-in-law and I) started to work: 1. We used a crowbar to fix the dented rim (we did it very carefully) 2. We put oil in the engine pivot 3. We closed tightly the plate that was connected to the engine 4. We reconnected the padels arms to be as close as possible to the plate 5. We built a metal plate to reinforce the plastic that was connected to the padels arms: https://share.icloud.com/photos/0VyzZCyV9FU-W9Ns4pu3d9JE | https://share.icloud.com/photos/0yPMVNvWOWbd0Dzrpu07zPv9Q | https://share.icloud.com/photos/0ND1UdxmtdXD9KZK_n9stX8Zg And after 4 hours the EUC is now acting like a brand new wheel. I can't express how happy I feel right now. Thank you for hearing my story ๐Ÿ˜
  4. If anyone interested here is how I fixed the problem https://imgur.com/a/zZBLUuX
  5. thank you for replying. It is important to mention that the bent happened a while ago and I only started to hear the sound 2 weeks ago. I think that it started after a jump. I donโ€™t care too much about the sound (although it is annoying) I just care because I feel like when the wheel is turning it touches a place it shouldnโ€™t touch and makes the wheel turn not in a smooth way. I can try bending the rim, Iโ€™ll do it carefully, however, Iโ€™m not sure this is the what causing the sound.
  6. Hi guys, Lately I started to hear chirping sounds while riding my KS 18L. Today it became even louder. While riding, I feel something in the wheel when the sounds appear. Here is a link to a recording of the sound: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1mc_MtEH1Xr5OSUzDuVHyNlwfFeaCYY_v/view?usp=drivesdk On Saturday I opened the device to replace the trolley and because I've heard the sounds before I checked the inner body and search for problems but couldn't find any. Another thing that I thought of is that because my rim is bent maybe the wheel is touching the plastic but I'm not sure. Here is a picture of the bent: https://share.icloud.com/photos/0BgrjF4kQ9Guxd63E_uMCo7cg#Kefar_Saba What do you think I should do? Is it dangerous to ride the wheel like that?
  7. I'm also going to use this solution for when my EUC is off but I'd like to have a solution to keep it still when the device is on.
  8. That is cool but I'll need to shutdown the device. I want to keep the device on, place it where I am and continue after 5-10 seconds.
  9. I see, well I guess the name of the topic is misleading. Sorry about that.
  10. Hmmm, it's not a mounting aid... It's just a way to place it while it's on for 5-10
  11. I know this is an old topic just wanted to show the kickstand I've added to my EUC
  12. Hi all, For the short period of time I'm using a EUC (1 months) I felt that a lot of times I needed to place the it for 5-10 seconds but couldn't find a spot to place it. I really wanted to add a kickstand but couldn't find a standard solution. So this is what I did with my father-in-law (in the end there is a video): https://imgur.com/a/R8jBMNS It cost me ~$6 Now, because it still doesn't stand in place immediately we need to add another leg to hold it. I will submit another post when we do it (probably in couple of days).
  13. Thanks, I guess you are right. Thanks just bought a chrome vinyl wrap ๐Ÿ˜Ž
  14. Thank you. I actually got a guard ๐Ÿ˜ƒ What do you think about the trolly? Is it defected?
  15. Unfortunately I'm from Israel and no one here sells EUC not to mention parts.
  16. Hi all, I bought a used KS18l that is pretty beaten up (see here and here). What should I replace to make it look new? I thoughts outer body (shell), handle, rim, tire, inner tube & pedals. Is there anything else? Btw, is my trolly working properly or should I replace it too? (See the last video in the album). Thanks!
  17. Thanks. I will send you email. Still would rather find a seller in Europe that can send to Israel.
  18. Hi all, I'm looking for a store to order parts for my ks18l and that will be able to deliver to Israel. Thanks.
  19. Thanks all. I actually managed to catch things up pretty quickly. I got to a point where when I step on properly I can continue riding without any interruptions. I'm going to put an emphasis on stepping on/off. Thanks!
  20. Thanks for the replies. Another question I have is how slow can you go with the EUC after becoming comfortable with it?
