    KS14s - Head/Tail - light management - bugs?

    Have you changed the settings in the app? I would have expected that they should be saved...

    Faceplant at 18-mph, on the Tesla

    Cool Kraken tattoo or not, I think that is only a moderate (at best) attempt at a bruise... I'm sure you can do better @Marty Backe - you just need to try harder!

    Flexmeter Double Sided Wrist Guards Question

    There website is www.solocc.com, but the seem to be in the middle of upgrading their site. The only sites that Google shows me that sell them online are New Zealand based and don't ship overseas - It's odd because I am sure it is a British company...

    ES4 Rear Suspension: How to Adjust?

    It should... Have you looked underneath it?

    Wrapping a wheel

    If you are looking for a vinyl wrap, check out Kazam SG... They have made some awesome looking wheels... But there is still the issue of the damage that occurs when you "bail."

    How long did you keep on using the belt?

    Gosh, that was so last year! I don't even remember posting it (but then that may be because of the "Christmas joy"). No, we aren't selling our wheels with a kill switch. Though we have just announced the "EUC Bodyguard" - which won't stop s*%t happening, but might at least soften the blow. I am just trying to finish a promo video to explain what it is and will be posting it to the appropriate forum section once it is ready.

    Info on e-scooters UK

    Unfortunately in most of the world today there is a significant difference between what is legal and what is sensible... And the local law enforcement officers often end up making a call as to which way they want to lean. Basically it seems to be a "good cop, bad cop" scenario! Hopefully you only ever bump into the "good cops."

    Flat tire KS14D

    I agree... That fact that your LED covers are still on would suggest that you missed these - there are four screws under each strip. Use a small screwdriver or plastic blade and slide it in at the top end. You should be able to lever it up and out, then unplug and you will have access to the screws.

    Ever Buy Stuff That You Probably Don't Even Need?

    Chrissi is still keen to learn (as time and weather permits), but in the meantime, she is quite happy riding the KS-N1b... Not quite a Dualtron, but not a Lime scooter either. It has a top speed of 25 mph, and a range of up to 30 miles. Perhaps @Mrs. Rehab1 would be more accepting of something like that?

    Ninebot ES2 first firmware update!

    Hi @iMak and welcome to our forum. The Segway / Ninebot firmware upgrades are generally fairly reliable, so I would suggest that you apply it (if you haven't already). You had a fairly old firmware version and the BLE and BMS updates should prove beneficial... I am not sure what the Master control update is for though - I will ask Segway and see what information we can get.

    What happens if you don't ride your EUC for a week or two?

    Try recreating Marty"s picture of him sitting there with all of his wheels... If your driveway is long enough!

    That would be an awesome ride! For those interested, this is our Ninety Mile Beach; And yes, I know it isn't really 90 miles long (which is probably a good thing, because that is a lot of Wh). @Alex_from_NZ - you will have to recover first, otherwise your tracks will look like this... o o o o o o ▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒ o o o o o o Too soon?

    Ninebot ES1, any give on the front wheel?

    That sounds like a plan... But which screws are you referring to?

    A couple more weird things with the 18L...

    King Song wheels have "fault codes" and which lights are on determines what they mean. So even though it appears to just be a glitch in this case, should this happen to anyone else... Count which LED are lit - starting with #1 at the bottom and working upward. The meaning of each combination is as follows; LED #1 and #4: Lit red and audible alarm - A wiring communication fault has been detected with the hall sensor wire in/to the motor. LED #1 and #5: Lit red and audible alarm - A short circuit has been detected in one of the three motor phase wires. LED #1 and #6: Lit red and audible alarm - The machine’s serial number has been corrupted. LED #1 and #7: Lit red and audible alarm - A firmware upgrade has failed.
