    New Inmotion V10 (V8 Fast)

    Dropping my wheel off at Inmotion in SD tomorrow. I tore it apart to replace the motor because of the bearing issue, but I'd rather not do that again if I don't have to. @Jeffrey Scott Will is always good to work with and gave me the go ahead to just drop it off at their offices. I'm curious to see how long they'll need it for.

    If anyone is interested. I had a bearing go bad on my V10F. @Jason McNeil had INMOTION send me a new motor. As I was replacing the motor with the bad bearing I saw that the new motor had loose hex bolts holding on one side cover, and it, in fact, was missing one. I pulled one off the old motor and tightened up all the bolts. When I went to move my tire/tube to the new motor I noticed that the rim was bent where the hole for the stem was drilled. Got everything back together and the new motor whines pretty badly. The old one was just about silent as you’d expect from inmotion, but the new one is fairly loud and annoying. So much for a quiet relaxing ride. Needless to say, I think I’m done with inmotion (love my V8), and I’ll be taking recommendations for a new wheel.

    @Bobwheel Are replacement motors going out to dealers as well? I have a bad bearing and @Jason McNeil is waiting on parts to replace my motor...

    It is a pretty loud scraping sound with some grinding thrown in. I thought at first some kind of rock got jammed in the wheel scraping the motor because it was so loud. The sound would come and go a little, and didn’t make any sound when I lifted the wheel but let it run. But when I put it back down and tried to ride it the loud scraping/grinding came back. I decided to walk it home with the trolley and the scraping was quieter but still there.

    D’oh! Just got the bad bearing scrape on my first production V10F. I ain’t ridin’ that again ‘til it’s fixed! Got out my V8-nice little carving machine. Forgot how small and light it is, relatively speaking. Email sent to @Jason McNeil . I’m sure he’ll take care of me.

    My V8 would always slowly leak air, so I slimed it and it worked great-no issues with over 1000 miles on it. My V10F slowly leaks air, so I slimed it today. No issues with imbalance, etc.

    I’m running the iOS version of the app, and I’ve calibrated the wheel as well. No joy.

    Has anyone else run into the “loose” or “sloppy” motion of the wheel? Mine rotates about 5-10 degrees before the motor engages. It’s the same forward or backward.

    Tried it. Didn’t help.

    V10F Review: An enthusiast perspective

    Definitely rocks without standing on the pedals. I realized today that with that much play it's throwing off the angle of the pedals (they lean/dip too far forward), so I backed off the angle to about 1.8 to keep me from feeling like I'm going to slide off the front of the pedals. Also, the body creaks when I'm leaning on it in tight turns. My V8 never did anything like that, and it had been through several rough crashes.

    V10F Review: An enthusiast perspective

    When I go to adjust the turning and forward adjustment I get an error that says it’s not enabled. iOS 11.4, iPhone X. At this point I haven’t noticed that changing the footboard sensitivity does anything at all. Also, I adjusted the sensitivity and the body of the wheel still rolls forward and backwards about a quarter inch before the wheel motor itself starts to turn. My V8 didn’t do this, and I’m starting wonder if I’ve got something loose somewhere (axle nuts or something).

    The issue I’m having with lowering the pedal sensitivity is that it feels “sloppy” in that the body rolls forward and backwards about 1/4”-1/2” before the motor starts to roll. Makes the wheel feel loose to me.

    V10F Review: An enthusiast perspective

    I did have my foot almost slip off the pedal during a tight turn. Now I'm more conscious of keeping my feet planted on the pedals as a result, and it hasn't happened since. Nobody else has mentioned it, but I'm getting some squeaks from the body of the V10F on sharp turns when I'm putting some weight on the body with my lower legs...
