    V10F: enchanted speed-limit at 34 km/h (21 mph)

    Actually I found it on a warranty card which came with the wheel.
  2. Hi, @Liamfind, I was suggested by some other forum member you are the Inmotion representative here. Recently I bought a second-hand V10F on Polish auction web-site in a very good condition overall; there was only one pedal broken which was already replaced. The wheel is operating very well except I cannot make it to surpass the speed of 34 km/h. The speed-limit setting in the Inmotion app was set to 40 km/h, the wheel was lifted after making this setting to have the engine turned off and the setting active, yet the wheel would never go faster than 34 km/h. There are NO exception in this regard at all. I weigh 87 kg and no matter how dynamically I accelerate, no matter if I go up-hill or down-hill, no matter if I go with wind or against it, no matter what is the battery charging level nor how heavy my back-pack is - it always tilts back exactly at the speed of 34 km/h. To me all these circumstances clearly suggest this protection behavior of my wheel has most likely nothing to do with such things like momentary wheel overload, which was already suggested to me by some other V10F riders, or anything like that; it looks as there is just some firm speed limitation set somewhere in the wheel's brain which, for some reason, the Inmotion app cannot override. I learned you might possibly need the serial number of my wheel to deal with this problem so, should it be the case, here it is: SN:1251885FD228007C. The wheel was originally bought on the 25/09/2018 at "Inmotion France by NewWalkings", so this is still quite a new device. The total distance ridden is about 2.000 km. Hope you could help me with this problem for which I would be so much grateful.

    Regards

    V10F: enchanted speed-limit at 34 km/h (21 mph)

    OK, got it, that's great! So, there is some hope to get help from the guys from Inmotion. By the way, they ask for "SN" to send them in the email describing the problem, which I believe is a vehicle's Serial Number. If so, where I find this SN of my V10F? Is it maybe printed somewhere on the wheel's body, or I should get it somewhere from the Inmotion app? Actually my wheel, when getting connected to the Inmotion app, is being recognized as V10F-D228007C; would it be its SN possibly...?

    V10F: enchanted speed-limit at 34 km/h (21 mph)

    @Chriull, thank you for your suggestions. My max. speed-limit is 34 km/h regardless of... ANYTHING. It is independent of any ANY other facet, factor or aspect of the wheel performance, including the battery charging level; I might have it fully charged - the speed-limit would always be 34 km/h - NO EXCEPTIONS! It is ALWAYS there at 34 km/h and it never fails! I think there is no sense of finding reasons for this strange limitation other than some the software/setting failure. Unfortunately this is a used wheel which is a second-hand purchase... It is an official transaction, however, I got a receipt for this car but the seller sells virtually everything, so I would not expect him to have the slightest idea about the nature of the wheel. Neither I would expect him of having any knowledge of the previous owner who was supposed to originate from France I believe, anyway. Who exactly is this person if you don't mind me asking? Is he like an experienced V10 rider, or maybe someone from Inmotion...?
  5. Hello, friends, I've been consulting the problem of the speed-limit setting in my wheel by the way on some other threads believing it is a simple one that could be solved with a single professional advice of any experienced V10F rider. Unfortunately it turned out not to be. I believe I did everything possible to make my wheel ride 40 km/h (25 mph), still it would never reach this speed; it is stuck at 34 km/h no matter what speed-limit setting above 34 km/h I make. And it always tilt-backs regardless of wind direction (with / against), land-form (up-hill / down-hill), mode of acceleration (mild / dynamic), the weight of my backpack (I myself weigh 87 kg 191 lbs). And: 1. My Inmotion software is updated: "Version:2.2.8 It is the latest version." 2. I always lift my wheel to stop the engine to make the setting work. (Of late I even turn the whole wheel off and then on again, just to be sure.) 3. I tried other apps, like Wheel-log, with the same negative result. Is there really no cure for this onerous disease...?

    Factory reset for Inmotion V10F

    @StyleTang, thank you for your response. However: I don't really think sound settings have anything to do with my speed-limit problem. Additionally, despite sounds being turned off in my wheel, I occasionally receive this sharp repeated sound alarm when approaching this enchanted 34 km/h speed limit; occasionally, NOT always, however. And this audible warning occurs ONLY when I accelerate really very aggressively. When accelerate gradually I don't receive any sound alarm; just this pertinacious 34 km/h-tilt-back. So, I think this sound alarm would indicate the overload problem, not the tilt-back thing. I weigh 87 kg (192 lbs), which is not that much I guess. I got a friend who weighs 100 kg (220 lbs) and does not experience anything similar to what I do with his speed-limit. He easily reaches 40 km/h anytime he wishes. Then, should it be the overload issue here it could be happening OCCASIONALLY when accelerating very fast, going against wind, up a hill, or with some really big load in your back-pack. And it would happen at different speeds, wouldn't it? In my case it happens ABSOLUTELY ALWAYS ant the VERY SAME speed of 34 km/h: no more, no less, and regardless of the amount of load I carry on my back, the mode of acceleration I perform at the moment, the kind of surface I ride on, and wind conditions. So, I firmly conclude, most probably there is absolutely nothing in the "overload" sphere of my wheel's performance which is causing my wheel to tilt back at 34 km/h. battery seems to be in a very good condition. The tilt-back problem occurs at the empty battery as well as at the full battery. And again, should it be the poor battery problem, the tilt-back would appear at different speeds giving different battery charging levels and different riding conditions - this is not my case, however, there is ALWAYS 34 km/h limit - ALWAYS! I always do. Recently, to be sure the changed settings get active I even got my wheel turned off totally and then on again; all the same - no positive effect. It is about 2.300 km in total. Well, sadly bad news here, the problem is still there... And just to be sure, in the light of my experiences, which I've described above the problem in my humble opinion have NOTHING to do with any overload or battery protection limitations; it looks like this is just the max. speed locked at the certain speed of 34 km/h. So, to have this wheel go to its maximum total speed authorized this is the very speed-limit which has to be unlocked some way. The question remains: how?

    At least this is what the app is saying: "Current Version:2.2.8 It is the latest version."

    Factory reset for Inmotion V10F

    What exactly do you mean, what kind of instructions do you have in mind? Where are they explained in detail...? What I do is I make the relevant setting to "maximum speed" and lift up the wheel turning off the engine by pushing the button in the handle and then put it down releasing the button. Of late, to be even more sure, I turn the wheel off and then on again after I make the change in the speed setting - all the time all the same. How can I make sure it has actually changed? The setting in the app is now constantly set to 40 km/h and I can see it with my eyes. Could it be not enough to be sure it has changed indeed? What else could I do to be sure it is actually set to 40 km/h for sure...? ... but unfortunately for some reason in my case it is not - I triple-checked it today - in both modes at about 34 km/h I often (but surprisingly not always) get the sound alarm and simultaneously always tilt-back effect at 34 km/h... This is so distressing.

    @UniVehje, thank you, I did. No change. Still tilt-back at 34 km/h usually with the aggressive sound alarm...

    Factory reset for Inmotion V10F

    I've set the max. speed to 40 km/h on my V10F on the Inmotion app and still get tilt-back at 34 km/h. Is there really no way of getting rid of this pertinacious limitation, indeed...?

    Factory reset for Inmotion V10F

    Hi, guys, I've got a used machine as in the title and I think it's kind'a messed up. For example I set the max. speed to 40 km/h by Inmotion app and the warning sound which was previously there disappeared, yet I still get tilt-back at something like 34 km/h (21 mph). Strangely enough there is no tilt-back setting in the original Inmotion app for some reason... Then in this app there seems to be some other account of some other person with his/her phone nr, some strange data, settings, maps and so on... Then I found my email address assigned to this strange phone number, which is scary! In these circumstances I wonder I'd like to perform a factory reset to completely clear up the whole wheel and have it as a newly born baby. Is there any way to do so? If yes, how to perform it, please?

    Darknessbot for android

    Max. factory V10F's speed is 40 km/h (25 mph). I'd like to set it to 45 km/h (28 mph), which I know is possible and many did this already. I was suggested Darknessbot can do this. So, I need the max. speed be changed once by someone with iOS system in his phone and of course Darknessbot on it, as long as this new 45 km/h limit remains once I connect to my wheel with my android phone and some other app, as for example original Inmotion app.

    Darknessbot for android

    The point is I need specifically this Darknessbot since according to some Inmotion V10F riders this is possibly the only app which can push this wheel up to 28 mph (45 km/h), which is more than its factory max. speed of 25 mph (40 km/h). Unless this Wheel Log app, or any other might be able to do the same...?

    Inmotion V10F - speed tunning

    @LZMutant, I've got it confirmed there is no Android version of Darknessbot: But then I got another idea and I wonder what you think off it: how about I have someone with iOS phone and the Darknessbot on it who would connect via bluetooth with my V10F and set the max. speed to 28 mph; would this setting stay once he disconnects and I connect back with my wheel with my android phone and a regular Inmotion app?
