  1. Hi It has been heavy rain here and my Segway ninebot Max scooter didn't work, so I opened up the bottom side which contains a battery and a controller, and found it was wet by rain. I have no idea how water got into inside of this part and can you give me any advice that I have to see or do taping for water protection?
  2. So the last time it rained I felt the KS-16s pedals were a little too slippery and didn't feel that secure when wet. So even though the wheel itself seemed to have enough traction when the ground was wet, my feet didn't feel that planted making me feel a bit uncomfortable riding in the rain. I bought this griptape in order to rectify this situation but it hasn't rained again since I made the switch. I have now commuted a couple days in the rain with the new griptape and I must say it is night and day. My feet feel like they are stuck to the pedals now even when wet. I think the first mod I wou
  3. When we ride in rain, the choices are either clothing, an impractical canope or an umbrellla that tackles speeed. My thoughts are we should have an umbrella that is hinged on one side like a wing or a wind foil that always follows the wind. your thoughts?
  4. Toronto's been hit with a lot of flooding. I've been through some rough weather with the MSX and it's hold up. After gaining knowledge of how low the motherboard sits my first solution was to duct tape around the edge of that casing to lower water getting in. Has anyone done any mods on waterproofing/resisting the msx? @Marty Backeshare your wisdom please
  5. So I was headed home afterwork and took a detour to grab a drink before I got home. Luckily from work to home is only a 10 min ride max. Why is that luckily? At night I ride in the road because it's not as unridable as the sidewalk (ironically) plus at around 11 at night, not many people are on the road. Well there was a car coming up behind me so I usually ride into the shoulder till they pass, but there was a fairly large puddle (it was raining still) I barely saw and ended up riding through. About a minute later, I got the tiltback warning (which I assume was me reaching top
  6. I rode for about an hour in very heavy rain yesterday. The MSuper V2 performed excellently in the rain, as usual. However, now the alarm beeper has a problem. It tries to make a sound, but it is much quieter than normal. I don't think it's shorted out, since it does make noise when it should, just much too quiet. I'm guessing water got into it. I have never read a report of this happening, so I'm entering the first report. I am hoping it regains its normal sound after drying out. After 24 hours, however, it still has a very quiet sound. I'll post a follow-up later once I know for sure that the
  7. Hi Everyone, first time posting, new to EUC's and new to electric rideables in general. I first started off on a huge rabbit hole into electric skateboards. That market is awash and rife with issues, but as I was getting close to selecting one, I saw a FabTrav video with the Gotway Monster in it, and I had to lift my jaw off my desk. That led me to a second rabbit hole into EUC's, which is a much smaller place by the way, and I think I've got my choice nailed. I think I will go with a Tesla. The reason being that it's the newest, and while I am not one to chase specs, the market
  8. Hey guys, Probably just a little paranoid but I've noticed that my Ms2 changed the beep tone and intensity its about 60% quieter and doesnt sound like the same tone as usual it's deeper. should i open it to check it out ? it happened after riding like 10 minutes under normal/light rain not heavy thx
  9. If the place where I live had a local language, we would have had about 40 different words for different kinds of rain. The ports (charging and usb) have covers, and even though mine are not really holding too well and slip off easily, that's a relatively simple fix. However I'm really worried about the power button. It does not look to be particularly weather-proof. So what's a typical experience about riding with the elements? A light drizzle? Light to medium showers? Raining dogs? The manual only mentions puddles specifically: they should be not thicker than 5cm.
  10. 1. Add-on against raining. I bought rain-cover-for-backpack to be used for this use. ($5 in S. Korea) I ride my MCM4 under heavy rain with holding an umbrella, MCM4's top covered by this rain cover. Some students chortled at seeing my riding... Laughing out loud 2. Add-on for storage I also added storage on top of MCM4 which was purchased at Daiso. ($2) Hanging all weights of my belongings on my shoulders gets a lot pain and then I started put more burden on MCM4, not on me, adding the storage pouch around the handle. And I attached a short leash in pla
  11. I started riding my NB1E in Seattle this summer when it is nice and dry, but soon the rains will come and I am not sure at all what to expect. Is traction loss a problem? Are there precautions to take? What about riding with an umbrella? Does the Ninebot kick up water? Anything you can tell me about riding in the rain would be much appreciated! -e
  12. Been using a 2013 solowheel classic for 3 years--everyday, for a 5 mile commute. Where I live, it rains 150 inches per year (which is a lot), and there's much hills, including a 10 degree incline. I never had a malfunction of any sort, probably because it's well encased. It never kicks up mud since the classic has a case that acts like a fender. Some other observations: nothing on it is rusty, cracked, oily, and it's always cool to the touch. I would say the battery lasts about 60% as long as it did when it was new, so it did degrade, but it's still useable for my commute. It's n
  13. Hi, I have just gotten my KS18A. I have learned how to drive it and now I would like to start using it for my main transportation device to work. It is February and I live in Finland so the streets are filled with melting snow. Basically I would be driving on a 14km long puddle to work. How waterproof is King Song 18" A 800w 680wh? Can I trust that it wont short circuit or something when i use it in these conditions? How can I better my devices waterproofing (please share your tips)? Thank you community for all your help!
  14. After a recent ride in the rain I realised the importance of added grip on the pedals. Especially while going over bumps as keeping your feet in the same position can be challenging while jumping curbs and such. I considered buying grip tape from a skate shop. Although being frugal and also a tinkerer I started to consider what was possible with what I had in the garage already. Then a thought occurred to use a low grit sand paper. The plan is to use a use high quality gorilla tape on the edges to give a durable attachment, covering all but a narrow strip in the center of the pedal.
  15. Hey Folks, I have a couple questions: -Are King Song units waterproof enough for use in the rain? I see that some of the gaps appear to be sealed with foam around the control board in disassembly photos----I was wondering if the same goes for the battery compartment. -How easy is it to get replacement parts for these units? Especially new batteries after the first one starts to degrade with use? Thanks, -Jacques
