  1. I got to be honest and tell you that in the end it was a bad idea. I couldn't get it to actually stand still, it was touching the side of the road if I did a quick turn and it is dangerous. I suggest that you will not do it and just find a place to quickly place the EUC for couple of seconds.
  2. Thanks @Lefteris I just finished a call with my brother-in-law. Flying to Greece will cost us $1500 which will make it not wroth to fly. So for now, I will need to give up, unfortunately. Thank you for your willingness to help, appreciate it.
  3. I think I would like to buy the new KS 18XL, how much do you think it should cost me?
  4. Thank you @Lefteris First I will confirm with my brother-in-law when we can fly to Greece (I will plan it 2 weeks ahead). After I have the date, I will order the EUC to you a week before I arrive. What do you think?
  5. Thanks, that's cool. Just need to find someone in Cyprus or Greece that can keep it for me until I arrive.
  6. Thanks @Lefteris and @meepmeepmayer, Finding the EUC is not a problem, I have KS 18L right now and would love to buy a brand new KS 18XL (or something like that). I think ordering it to someone can be great, and would love to hear if you know anyone in Cyprus or Greece that will be kind enough to allow me to send the EUC to him?
  7. Hi @Lefteris, @meepmeepmayer and @The Fat Unicyclist, Thank you for your reply. Let me explain. Unfortunately I live in a country that does not allow to enter EUC to the country not to mention sell it (Israel). This is why when we want to bring EUC we need to smuggle it, part by part in our suitcase and hope for the best. Recently, my brother-in-law got his flight license and therefor, can fly to Cyprus and Greece quite easily. As a Pilot, he is less prone to get his suitcase checked. This can increase my changes to buy a EUC and bring it to the country. So, just to be clear, I do not live in Cyprus not Greece, I just live near by Maybe a good idea will be to order a EUC to someone that lives there and I will fly there, get it and fly back. Would love to hear what you guys think, thanks!
  8. Hello, I'm trying to see if there are stores that sell EUC in Greece or Cyprus. Anyone knows and can share links?
  9. hmm, you can try and ask here https://t.me/euc_inmotion they know everything
  10. Yes, this part: https://share.icloud.com/photos/0QlBTlXfovswxATGpIYhOAKCg
  11. 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.
  12. Thank you. Yes I will. Next job is to wrap it with chrome sticker 😱😁
  13. 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 😁
  14. If anyone interested here is how I fixed the problem https://imgur.com/a/zZBLUuX
  15. 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 don’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 shouldn’t touch and makes the wheel turn not in a smooth way. I can try bending the rim, I’ll do it carefully, however, I’m not sure this is the what causing the sound.
  16. 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?
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. I see, well I guess the name of the topic is misleading. Sorry about that.
  20. Hmmm, it's not a mounting aid... It's just a way to place it while it's on for 5-10
