  1. Hi! I bought Nikola+ recently and I did think about buying Nikola+ AR but it was 300$ more and the difference was just the lights in side and other small details, so I was thinking was it possible to add them manually, I have found the same led circle and wires but IDK is it even possible, If it is I would save up to 280$ which I could use for equipment, side pads, etc. here are the items I found: The lights (24led) https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32673883645.html?spm=a2g0s.8937460.0.0.58ca2e0egd0PnJ and the wires I guess: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005001380598384.html?spm=a2g0o.cart.0.0.5e473c00eg2npp&mp=1 What I want to ask the Nik+ AR community is: Is this possible? Is the wire I found the correct kind? (If not please send a picture of how the wire actually looks) And if possible send a picture of how the lights are connected to the plastic side? Thanks!
  2. Nobody seems to ride the GT16 these days - I do. Short version: These two pictures show the same EUC-shell before and after. This is the continuation from repairs-and-mods-on-my-gt16 The last bigger crash caused one broken pedal (fell off when coming home) and a cracked shell plus a bulged motor cover that led to a left-right slipping axle. Me ? No damage - I was sliding maybe 10m from one big puddle to another all protectors where under my clothing, no asphalt. After arriving at home (YES by wheel) I moved my cloth to the trash bin directly because of the 360° dirt and all protectors were visible. I would say 'no blood = no accident' I decided to not fix it quick and dirty nor to make any compromises. I started with fixing the shell by using a smell less 2K product that I use for filling and also for bonding. When I need more flexibility I just use a bit less hardener while with more hardener it results in an woodlike compound that can be sawed, sanded or drilled like wood without being brittle. The crack was not small - I laminated a slightly bent screw without head as reinforcement and did the same with small metalplate on another crack (the green marking). The two years before reinforced screwholes survived - just one of the screws was slightly bent. TENAX® button mod: After making this cool "quick-open-the-hood-mod" with the button connectors I realized the broken pins on the bottom side. Rockwheel company is dead, so I do not even think about throwing away any part because something is cracked or broken - I decided to make a hook from 1.5mm steel plate and glued it on. I found an old trolley handle from anything and retofitted it for my GT16 since the old one was very outworn. Next step was the Motherboard compartment and wiring optimization - there was some mess I added a LED voltmeter for never ever having any questions regarding the voltage of my GT16. This is the outsourced Light part: The Motherboard does not deliver enough power for all the white LED lights. I used a relay switched by the original frontlights power. The relay switches a stepdown converter 84V to 12V/5A that delivers enough power for all the LED's instead. All parts ready to get coated and paint line is prepared: product mixing: I stored a little bit into a small tube together with some drops of thinner and no hardener for dipping future major scratches. Paintjob done: Assembly of high quality easy-running bearings and new tire: Forgot to make the pressing plates from 4mm steel, so ... Then reassembling board and shell. the wiring was a very tricky job, I used surgery-tools which made it much easier. I made the motor cable shorter and added a micro-USB plug corresponding to the new board-sided USB-socket I added before. Now everything possible is reinforced, optimized and in superb condition, there's nothing more to do, I think - maybe 100V-mod or 21700 upgrade. The procedure of pulling the Motor is outstanding easy in the world of EUC's now: I open the sidecovers without tools and then remove 4 allen screws plus 4 other under the footplates - this is easy done in 2 minutes. After pulling the motorcable and the usb-hallsensor plug I can pull off the motor and vice versa. There is only one little thing that is not done, yet - but this will be added soon to make it perfect: optimized toolbox and spare tube-pocket inside the wheel, of course.
  3. POST YOUR CUSTOMIZED EUC's HERE! So hard trying to find specific EUC searches. With so many brilliant & talented minds riding EUC's, I know there has to be some cool Customized Wheels out there. Even if you just have a couple stickers or complete overhaul. Share your Modded / Customized Wheels here!
  4. Hi Guys. I have come across a few posts on Instagram and videos of russian riders with awesome aftermarket gear for their EUC's. From the little i know about Russian scooter modders they have a good reputation for building after market kit. So the idea of this post was to find out who has bought from russian sellers what did you think of the item you bought and do you have a website to recommend? I am based in the UK and dont speak Russian im not after anything in particular just wanting to see more of the range of whats out there the weather is getting better and I fancy showing my wheel some love with some new mods. Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated in advance on behalf of myself and anybody else who finds your input useful. Andrew
  5. What do you guys think? Is it a pro or con? Looks crazy fun tho!
  6. Good day all, new member and new rider here. I've been learning on a borrowed KS-18XL and had the opportunity to pick up a second hand one in great shape so I have. So far very happy except that the headlight on the one I bought is utterly and completely useless - the output is just nothing like the other one (or what it is supposed to be, based on looking at others' comments and reviews). The obvious fix is to replace the headlight module (not especially costly, so no huge deal) but first I wondered - has anybody here tried to replace/mod for even better lighting? If so - what did you do and how is it working? If an upgrade can be done instead of just a "repair" I would likely go for it, any input appreciated. Thanks!
  7. Hi, everyone ! I have a KingSong 14C for 3 years. The battery is getting worse and worse. Right now I am thinking about adding an external battery to switch over. That is , once the internal battery is exhausted, I will flip a switch and the external battery will take over. The ones inside are both 67.2v Lithium Ion, but I am really not happy with the degradation and potential hazard of burning. So I am looking at LiFePo4 batteries, which are supposed to be better. No memory effect, no fire hazard, can recharge over 2000 times... So I found one seems to be good as a replacement for my 60v batteries: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/33029347856.html?spm=2114.12010612.8148356.2.27827841YMgDw4 The size is not an issue, since I will put it on top of the EUC. The voltage is similar. I will make sure it will be charged only up to 67v, instead of 73v. Now the only thing I am not sure is that the battery has a maximum discharge of 150AMP ! This is way over the regular EUC's motor. My question is, since the battery's discharging current is much higher, will it damage the control board or the motor? Or the board has circuit to prevent excessive power from the battery? Thank you very much for any of your insight !!
  8. I modded my MCM5 to ride on Chao Yang 14x2.5" wide tire. The stock MCM5 is 14x2.125" wide. I am used to wider tires (mten3, Z10, Nikola). I was not comfortable with the stock MCM5 tire. @RoCan modded his MCM5 for the 2.5" wide tire. This tire mod require cutting away a portion of the front and back shell cover along with the outer edges of the wheel well. I took @RoCan advice and made sure I cut away enough material so there is ample clearance for the wide tire. The clearance I was shooting for was 3" from edge to edge. This means the last two bottom shell screw holes were cut off. I plan to use metal or moldable plastic tabs to hold the cover bottom edges to the shell. The plan was to do rudimentary cut, install tire, and ride test. Then clean the cuts, seal any gaps, and trim out. Currently at the ride testing phase. Initial observations: The 14x2.5" tire is actually 14.5" diameter. The recommended pressure is 35-45 psi. The tire need to be inflated at or above 33 psi. Anything less and the tire rubs against the top inner wheel well. I believe under inflation causes the tire to expand diameter wise. Whereas higher psi the tire widens (flatten). I am testing it at 43psi which is on the hard side. I feel it going over 4" curve. I plan to reduce the tire pressure in 2 psi increment to find the lowest useable pressure. I took the wheel to work. The ride quality even with hard tire pressure is fantastic. The combination of wider tire and the tire itself gives the wheel very good control. The feeling of falling over on tight turns is gone. It handles like an mten3 at low speed. At higher speed (22+ mph) it gets a little squirrelly due to high tire pressure tracking road. I believe this can be resolved by dropping the pressure below 38 psi. I am glad I did this mod. It has turned my MCM5 into a mini Nikola. Chao Yang 14x2.5" tire versus stock 14x2.125" tire.
  9. Hi all! I'm coming up on the ~2,000 mile mark on my MCM5 and I think it's about time to do a serious sweep through of the wheel to make sure everything checks out as it should. I had the idea to do this and create a thread that can be a sort of go to for other members looking to check out their wheels, but it's also to help me understand a few things I'm not sure of. The goal here is to allocate all of the information associated with wheel maintenance so that it saves everyone lots of time when it's their turn to do the same! Keep in mind that this is a work in progress and will undergo many formatting changes and additions to the info found here. A lot of what you'll find has been taken from info supplied by other people and keep in mind that everything you read is probably not supplied by an expert, although there's bound to be a bunch of info that is!

Some basic troubleshooting steps if you think you may have battery issues or just want to check out how your batteries are doing! If using an app to check our your voltage other settings, make sure the app is set to your wheels proper specs. I made this mistake and its a simple check! Using a multi-meter (linked below), check to make sure your charger is outputting the advertised voltage! Copied from a post below (credit to Chriull & Raging Grandpa)... First check the charger no load voltage. Then the fully loaded battery output voltage (to act as a... control of the voltage measurement on the mainboard). If this is ok it ought to be one of the battery packs. Separate the packs and try to charge them individually - in most cases only one is bad. To do this, unplug and charge up one of the packs. Then test. Do the same for the other! Replace the bad one with a new one - and ensure they have as good as the same voltage when reconnecting! If one is experienced enough one can replace the bad cells of the bad one instead of getting a new one. But since one most presumably has no possibility to do proper cell matching this repaired pack will not last as long. But it will be much cheaper... (see the link on testing out different cells below for more info) Description of BMS & Battery relationships "It's slightly more complicated: your BMS ("Battery Management System," a circuitboard contained in the pack) is detecting that some cells are 'full' and is stopping the charging event. When this happens, the indicator light on your charger will go 'green' - but the pack voltage never got near 84V." - RagingGrandpa How to replace a battery pack! "(Pack replacement)..It's quite simple- the pack is a module that can be unplugged from the EUC. Plug in new pack, close up the plastics, done" - RagingGrandpa Testing out difference cells... "If this is all brand-new to you, I don't recommend doing it... save yourself a few skin burns. But to answer your question: we suspect you have some cells at 0V. To confirm it, you would need to measure the voltage of each cell... but in all cases, pack replacement is the answer." - RagingGrandpa A thread that goes into much more depth or testing different cells Supplies needed/Voltage Tester Etekcity MSR-R500 Multi-meter recommend as an entry level and budget friendly option by RagingGrandpa Flukes Digital Multi-meters recommended by a (mechanic?) as a higher end very reliable option - ShanesPlanet This thread goes into the dos and don'ts of using multi-meters! -Chriull Where to sell old battery cells/any other old or damaged parts?

  10. Hey guys, I play music when riding my KS16, but I want to upgrade the speakers to be louder. Has anyone any experience on doing that? Any problems when changing the speakers that I should be aware of? And what speaker did you try out? I want the whole city to know I'm coming their way.
  11. I've finished the Kuji pads mod follow instruction from Kuji Rolls https://youtu.be/NEFZmKrApLw Modified a bit to avoid blocking V8's leds since his instruction is only for big wheel like V10, MSX, etc... Do not looking for jump with V8, but seeking for more stability when riding. Gonna test it soon and report the effectiveness Latest updates: - Adjust the upper pad for comfort. - Reduce the ankle pads thickness to fit with my leg and need.
  12. Some of the mods I've done. Stickers to cover all the scratches ? A front bumper/stand (3mm aluminium flatbar, bend to shape, double sided tape to hold it on) Larger foot pads/plates/pedals (remove skid pads, remove top plate, 5 screws, screw on 4mm aluminium plate cut to fit and drilled for existing screw holes, add skateboard deck tape). Should make longer trips easier on my feet. Heaps of grip. Folds as original, and I've had no pedal strikes in testing so far. I used the original plates as template for the holes and slot. Used longer screws (10mm). 600km's on the wheel so far, and loving it. What have you done to yours?
  13. I'm trying to prevent the euc from accelerating when it leaves the ground, or even make is accelerate slower. Has anyone messed with this?
  14. Hello! Tomorrow i get my Z10 upgrade, its gonna be my first powered up wheel, and i thought i search for some stickers / decals for it, as i had on my firewheel clone, and i know that there are plenty for ninebot one euc's like the e/p/s2 models. I've seen designs like captain america shield, pokemon pokeball (funny) and more. But, i can't seem to find anything about the Z series. I've searched for Kingsong stickers, nothing, I also searched for InMotion stickers, still nothing! Why there aren't any out there, i know it's a burden to have them removed, but there are some stickers out there, like the ones i have on my mac book air, that can be removed easily and don't leave a trace of glue or any kind of residue. If you have any idea/links/something, please share it with me/us (the community). And, last, can we print out stickers from a design we like on a printer that cuts it sticker in the right places so we can remove it with ease and put it on a wheel!?!! If yes are there there specs/dimensions about wheels anywhere? Lot's of questions, but had'em on my mind for so long!
  15. Hi All, Moving in from the Firmware topic into its own topic for Open Sourced Hardware. Over the next little while I will move all the content from Firmware onto this post. I've been working on Reverse engineering the Gen2 boards as a starting point for development. Should have that done and posted today. We hope to be able to use the same Git to do both Hardware and Firmware advancements. I will post the important links as they come to this page. Lets keep the topic to Hardware. Although I have a Mechatroincs background my firmware skills are limited so we will definitely need some support from our Firmware buffs. Welcome to the topic. Mo
  16. Hey guys, I've seen a lot of posts/videos that the beeps from ecus can't be heard that good at high speeds with a helmet on?! As i'm getting my gotway m super x my idea is to add a more powerful speaker so i can hear the beeps real good. Does anybody have a clue what power the board outputs to the stock speaker?
  17. Hi everyone, long time reader, first time poster. I've had my generic Chinese EUC for about 9 months now. I've been proficient enough to ride around the city for the last 7 months, but a recent fall, my first real one, sapped my confidence. It's all just a bit. too. hard... sometimes! It got me thinking. Is there a way to use my EUC to bolt on to a scooter frame? I've seen the cheap electric Razers come and go, and then the nicer and larger electric scooters, but I have never quite seen the wheels get to the dimensions that the EUCs enjoy. Of course, there are the skateboard mods with a giant wheel in the middle but they scare the pants off me, and crazy as it sounds, I can ride an electric unicycle but I can't ride a skateboard. What if we could use the EUC as the front wheel of a scooter when we want to be a bit lazy? I picked my EUC up from Gumtree for about $200 nearly a year ago, and find that a scooter with the same battery range would cost over $1000. Has anyone ever seen something like this attempted, have I missed something? Or is this a pipe dream, with no feasible solution? Have I just identified a market solution that is going to be ripped away from me with millions to be made (doubt that!)? I've searched forums, Google, etc. with no luck.
  18. So I had my ninebot mini working as a mule to pull a wheelchair. I have a big dog and I cannot walk fast enough to exercise him. I made an extension bar that connected to the knee pads to try and control it. It sometimes got away from me. SO…. I tried a more serious mod, and I took the wheels of the mini and replaced the wheelchair wheels. I made a foot brace to hold the mini body, and had it so that it pivoted on some pipe that I put in the original wheel mounting blocks on the mini. I extended the wires from the wheels, including the 5 control wires. When I powered up the mini I get 3 flashing lights followed by 9 lights. I inverted it and powered it on, hoping that a reset would fix it….. No good. Even upside down I get 3 flashes followed by 9 flashes. I looked for error codes, and see some listed, but none had a 3 followed by 9. I hope that I did not blow the board. (I did have trouble getting the control cables disconnected and I ended up pulling the cable and the tan sleeve on both sides I can try putting it all back together, but before I do that I wanted to see if anyone can tell me what the error code is. I have soldered the leads and sensors to disconnects on both ends. I suspect that it is a communication error and it does not like the extension of the control leads. (I guess that is I hope it is this, better than a blown board) I did use cat5 twisted pair cable to try and keep noise down….. It could also be that it does not like the loss of the longer power cables. I used 14 gage wire, which as abut as big as I could fit in the body. I did fit disconnects on the power leads so I could make the extension section heaver….. But I first wanted to find out what the error code is. Any help would be appreciated.
