Looking for ACMs+ side panels
Tiggerlen posted a topic in Private Sales (secondhand)Hey all, If someone has a set of ACMs+ side panels in good condition I would be happy to buy them from you. Thanks!
I love my new 84v ACM but I think the tire or wheel may be imbalanced and i'm not sure if this is a problem or if it can be fixed. When i lift the wheel off the ground and let it spin, it has a slight wobble or shimmy that natrally gets worse with increased speed. similar to how a washing machine wobbles on its spin cycle if the clothes are off balance. The wobble begins to be noticeable around 10-20 km/h Its not a side-to-side wobble, which is good. in other words the vibration is mostly up-down. the tire is tracking straight to a reasonable precision. I don't notice the wobble when i'm riding it. As long as my weight is evenly distributed, it's a smooth ride even at 35km/h, which is as fast as i've dared to ride so far. Does anyone else have this kind of wobble and is there any way to fix it? I don't even know if the imbalance is in the tire or in the wheel itself. I don't know if this is affecting my ride experience or if i should be concerned about it.
Re-posting a SpeedFeetUK customer incident of Gotway ACM V2 / Monster pedal breakage: https://www.speedyfeet.co.uk/blogs/things-concerning-safety/gotway-acm-footplates-safety-check Gotway ACM Footplates Safety Check by Ian Sampson February 25, 2017 Failure of Gotway ACM Footplate A customer has reported the failure of one of their footplates. The style of footplate is the latest version of the ACM footplate. The model it was fitted to was the Monster 22" purchased late 2016. As always, Speedy Feet will announce any issues reported by customers to keep us all as safe as possible! SHARE this post to all those that it may apply to those it may effect (Button Below) We would recommend ALL riders check their footplates for signs of stress. (Simple scuffing and usual knocks are not part of this potential issue). Conditions of incident: Rider has done around 200 miles on the unit. Simply dropped off a standard size curb, has never done any stunts on the Monster (pretty difficult due to size of the monster!). Only ever used on road in the short distance it had traveled. Rider weight approx 100kg. THINGS TO LOOK FOR WOULD BE: 1. Stress Fractures (These would be actual cracks or signs of stretching of the metal, usually around points of stress, i.e. the hinge area). 2. Actual breakage / or splitting.

Gotway ACM V2 Cut outs and vibration
Jack ex-KS posted a topic in Mods, Repairs, & DIYSo recently I took ownership of an ACM V2(which i didnt pay for) that had issues where it cut out randomly. After opening it up we found this: Two of the cables had so much going through them it melted together and also melted itself onto the casing. With the help of @Marty Backe, @houseofjob @IvSusand @Tishawn Fahie and ing my referral program from eWheels, @Jason McNeil kindly sent me a left over motherboard which had about just under 2000km on it. The capacitor had a minor dent but the board seemed to operate fine. I mounted the board then went out for a ride and as I felt confident on the wheel and had no had any issues I went riding home and thats when it cut out on me. Coming to the conclusion it was because I didnt krimp two of the three newly soldered cables I did the wiring again this time cutting off the gold metal tubing originally attached to the cable from the motherboard side and went ahead with a cable to cable connection. I soldered, krimped and heat sinked. However now the machine vibrates and jerks especially when changing direction here are the videos: and https://www.flickr.com/gp/158169862@N07/f056bJ I am about to do a complete tear apart of the wheel and check the wiring. Any ideas on what it could be? Thank you for all the people who have helped me so far and who will continue to help me! Jack
First: Changed the headlight SMD with about 80 Lumen(right) to 300 Lumen(left) output. The new one is the same like the SMD from Cateye Volt300. Forgot to make pictures before and after. Unfortunately... But it's really bright right now Now I just hope the heat dissipation works well enough Second: Add some SMD to the backlight. Second picture is the original LED strip. Third pic with the modification.
Gotway ACM Trolley Handle - Installed
EU_Newbie posted a topic in Begode (Gotway) and Extreme BullThought I would share my handle install with the forum in case it is helpful. Bought it on eBay and can be mounted to front or the rear. I chose the rear just for ergonomics/appearance. Works/fits fine with the power port. Makes it also easy to wheel around if powered up, just by applying slight pressure front/back. Basically drives itself, as you'd expect. For the install, you will need to bend the steel plate that goes over the lower part of the wheel, as shown. It comes as a 100% straight piece. With this slight angle at center, it creates a flush fit. To install, you'll need to pre-drill the holes at top and bottom. I do like that this steel plate makes the junction of the two shell pieces stronger when attached. Note also that the top will also require pre-drilling with the same bit to be able to put the screw through it - it is hard plastic and was not fully pre-drilled. It was quick and easy to install. And so far, so good. The looks are certainly cleaner without it, but for function in commuting to/from platforms, very short distances, it is worth the tradeoff - the ACM is a ton of bricks to lug around. Hopefully this is of use if you're considering it.
