    Firmware V1.08 on KS-18S - Now locked up

    Back up and running! @Flora Yuan and @US69 got me fixed up. You have to get another engineering app that will allow you to install the firmware by wheel model rather than allowing the app to select it automatically. In this case the app installed once and kept on wanting to install 16S 1.08 onto my 18S wheel. I didn't loose any settings or mileages. Thanks everyone!

    Just noticed the “firmware model” is KS-16S....the wheel is a 18S.

    A couple more screen shots from the app:
  4. Got a prompt to update firmware, did so no issues. Restarted and wheel just beeps rapidly and non-stop after the update... firmware took...wheel shuts off sometimes after 10-15 seconds other times stays beeping like this. I do get the following message in the app... Any ideas? Thanks, Adrian

    Downtown fun! Nice edit from one of our skateboarders (Brice Luppi).

    Looking for a wheel in TX

    I sent you a facebook message. I'm part of the Houston EWheelers. Let me know what you're looking for. If you can ride already you probably want something different than if you're learning to ride.

    Strange noise in my KINGSONG 18S

    What did you clean and how? Mine is making a similar noise. Was it dirt or trash around the axel?
  9. This Mod will allow you access to get into the wheel without having to remove pads completely thereby ruining their stickiness. I used a .45 caliber casing to hammer perfect little holes into the pads where the access screws are. Seeing the screws is a slight cosmetic change but one that doesn't bother me one bit. This is a Kingsong KS18S and I've had the same issue with other KS wheels. I know KS covers their screws with the pads. I can't speak to other manufacturers. IMHO the pads should be manufactured with holes in them or the mod done the first time the pad is installed. We WILL have to get into the wheel at some point for one reason or another. Cheers!

    How do experienced riders gain the knowledge of what their wheels are capable of? I’d assume it’s by riding enough to have a pretty good idea of what isn’t going to give an alarm, and respecting that alarm. They have to learn by listening to the alarms, right?

    I didn’t realize the formalized distinction either...what I want is wheel with plenty of power that warns we well in advance of me pushing it to it’s limit. I want to avoid all falls whether it’s my fault or the wheel’s fault.

    I could be wrong. Regardless of whether you call it a cutout, overlean, faceplant or max speed...he asked the wheel to do something it couldn't do and the result is the same. There is no audio on the video but I would hope that it was alarming like hyperactive smoke detector and he just ignored the warnings...??? Anyone know.

    It's leaning at 45 degrees. It has stopped balancing. I too frown upon cutouts (I thought that was funny!)
  14. Evel_Knievel


    The wheel is off (for whatever reason) at this point.

    Is "cut-out" frowned upon? Basically the wheel was asked to do something it couldn't so it shuts down for one reason or another (blown mosfet, burned connector, melted wire etc). In theory a wheel with infinite power would never cutout (it would be impossible to overlean).
