  1. For some reason the side lights and the speaker on my V8 (a couple of years and a five hundred miles old) stopped working. Not making sound when starts and stops and the speed warnings are gone as well. The forward light works and it rides fine otherwise. It did took a few steps tumble a few weeks ago so it may be related but the lights and speaker stopped working a few days later I think. Any ideas on how to diagnose?
  2. Hi there, I read various questions on how EUCs are spreading in Japan. So I decided to share some pictures and videos from our group here in the Kansai area. Please ? enjoy! https://photos.app.goo.gl/otwk8fFTsSQbnyM43
  3. Hey Guys I'm ordering a inmotion v8f but it comes with a US charger, I'm wondering if I can plug this charger into a UK socket with an adapter without the machine blowing up lol? I really don't want to pay £50 for a Uk charger. Thanks
  4. I just got a new shell for my V8. I would love to be able to protect it from scratches somehow (without using the cover that came with the wheel), keeping the LEDs visible. So that got me wondering if anyone has ever tried Clear Vinyl Wrap on their V8 or V10 (or if anyone has ever used it for something similar): https://www.amazon.com/s?k=clear+vinyl+wrap&ref=nb_sb_noss_2 Do you guys think? Would help to prolong the shell's life? Would it be a nightmare to install?
  5. Has anyone added any padding to their V8/V10? I am determined to add some but I'm not sure where.... or how.... or when.... Is your V8/V10 padded? Show us a picture!
  6. For sale is this inmotion v8 wheel with the Solowheel logo on it. Has about 200 miles on it. Still has the protective plastic from the store in some areas (like handle and around the unit) --I put a protective plastic that came with the unit on one side of the EUC and on the footplates to protect them. All could be peeled off if desired, it includes a protective sleeve, not pretty but very functional. Units does have some signs of normal wear. No wipe-outs, no accidents, no flats, no problems of any kind, includes charger and original box. Purchased from ewheels so is not second hand, I am original owner. Please see picture if interested. Reason for sale: I need to completely pay off my KS 18l. Pick up available. LOCAL PICK UP ONLY Where: US, CA, Long Beach area Asking $525 pick up only
  7. Dear InMotion: * Your Android App is horrible! * Horrible, horrible, garbage! * It makes me want to avoid your company * Please make an app that reflects the quality of your wheel. * Please make a fully English version, not just Chinese. * This will be required before you get an additional $2000 from me. Please release a new app for the upcoming V11! (one that supports the V5, V8 and V10 as well)
  8. I recently found out that I could not fully charge my V8 using the original factory default 84V 1.5A charger. The charger light always turns green while the battery indicator on V8 is still blinking. Tried few different experiments using Charge Doctor Voltage output with 3 different chargers: Charger A - my oldest charger, about 15 - 16 months usage, indicates 79.8V - 79.9V. Charger B - about 6 months usage, indicates 80.5V - 80.6V. Charger C - about 3 months usage, indicates 81V. I have never really noticed the Voltage while they were brand new though. Are they supposed to be exact 84V showing on Charge Doctor? Could anyone with V8 and Charge Doctor confirm please? What is wrong with these? Which components are failing/aging and need to be replaced? Is it normal for chargers to have output voltage drops overtime like this? I believe I have always taken good care of them.
  9. Hello, I sell my inmotion v8 and want to know if there is anything I have to do in the app to "unregister" or "reset" the wheel? Tx Kai
  10. This is just a quick note to tell you all how DEEPLY IN LOVE I AM WITH MY V8 My girlfriend may be intensely jealous, but my true love (the V8) and I don't care. Coming up on a year of romance and close to 1000km traveled with no wipe outs or problems of any kind, she has never let me down. Rock-Solid. Non stop fun. My V8 and I still love spending time together: we both enjoy long rides through the park, quick shopping trips downtown, brunch dates with friends, I hold it's handle while we watch the sunset at the beach, etc etc.. It's all very sweet. The heart wants want the heart wants: and I'm here to tell you it wants a V8. Your heart probably wants one too, you just won't realize it until you own one. It's like having a dog, or a child - you just can't even imagine the intense life-long bond that will form, until it happens to you. Such a beautiful, elegant, brilliant little vehicle. Suddenly your world is brighter and you realize how incredibly slow and boring walking is. Why walk when you could fly!? How can I convey to all the non-V8 owners what they are missing? It's just perfect: the perfect weight, the perfect speed, the perfect range, the perfect price. With a V8 it becomes all about the journey rather then the destination; you'll find yourself taking the long way home. I wish I was poetic, I'd totally write my V8 a poem.... sigh... Babies should be assigned a V8 at birth - it is an absolute tragedy that most people will never discover joy that a V8 can bring. Walking is stupid - get a V8™
  11. Dear all, My Inmotion V5+ does not seem to charge full to 100% as indicated on the app anymore. While the light from the adapter (that rectagular block thing) switches from red to green, when I connect to the app the percentage is always only 90 something, never 100%. Moreover, when I connect to the app while charging the V5+, there seems to be no indication on the app to say that it is indeed charging. Any help? TIA
  12. its directional instability drives me nuts. Driving this wheel straight along longitudinal grooves is more challenging than making small backward circles (which is, admittedly, with this wheel surprisingly easy). I didn't have any crash, but the wobbles are crazy scary and make precise steering super difficult. What is your experience? I suspect the main or even sole reason might be the Kenda tire?
  13. Hi all, I'm looking to buy my first EUC. Ideally I'm looking to spend £200-£350 depending on whats available. In particular I would be interested in a Ninebot e+ or a Inmotion V5F. Ideally I'd like a Inmotion V8 but I don't think my current budget would stretch that far. I'm based in Bristol, but happy to look into postage if need be. Many thanks, Max
  14. Hi there, I'm brand new to EUCs, have just learned to go a straight line. I crashed on the first day. It was limited to 15kph, I wasn't going Vmax and had the cover on, so IMO the crash should/could not have caused any serious issue to the wheel. Some hours later I found that, when I try to break a bit harder (for a total beginner) I noticed a very pronounced "knock" noise as well as a corresponding feeling in the pedals. I can simulate this by load cycling as in this video: https://youtu.be/lGfO2kKzqao I don't know if it was always like that, if it suddely came or if was due to the crash, but it's obviously not normal, so I took the wheel totally apart. I found absolutely nothing which could cause such a sound. After seeing how this thing is built, I would say this hard knocking noise must come from the wheel itself, (the part where the pedals are mounted), not the surrounding enclosure, but that's just an opinion. Apart from this knocking the wheel feels perfectly fine (as far as I can tell as a novice). https://ibb.co/xs5cd9F https://ibb.co/pyJG13B I did not take the motor itself apart (due to the lack of a 21mm spanner) but watching some youtube videos, it doesn't seem like there is much in there which could cause the noise. Any suggestions? Thanks! reach
  15. 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?
  16. Hi all! New to the forum & new to the hobby/lifestyle:) I'm looking to pick up my first wheel and I've found a Z6 and a V8, both second hand for around the same price...what do you guys think I should go for? Open to any and all advice! (Based in the UK, weight 85kgs, use will be mainly to commute 6miles round trip)
  17. About a year ago, I bought an InMotion V8 secondhand for $550 (it had about 500 miles on it). It was a great wheel to learn on, and it turned out to be perfect for commuting. At only 30 pounds, it wasn’t too heavy to lug up the stairs in the train station and up to the second floor of MetroLink train cars. It topped off at 19 mph, but that was plenty fast for my six-mile wheel commute each way (four miles from Cerritos to the Norwalk/Santa Fe Springs MetroLink station, and two miles from the Glendale MetroLink station to work). The trolly handle was very easy to engage and disengage, which was perfect for transitioning from train to train (I have to transfer at Los Angeles Union Station to another train that takes me one stop to Glendale). The problem is that over the past year, the battery life deteriorated dramatically (or it could be that I started using up more battery since I’ve gained weight over the past year). Toward the end of a one-way commute, I noticed that the top speed would get more and more limited. Thus I decided it was time to buy a new wheel. After a lot of research, and watching a lot of Marty Backe’s videos, I decided that the GotWay MCM5 was the wheel for me. Well, today was my first commute on the MCM5, and here are my thoughts. Although it weighs only seven pounds more than the V8, that seven pounds makes a big difference when picking up the wheel to climb stairs. I definitely need to get used to the weight. The V8 was much easier to push around using the trolly. This might be a function of the sharp trolly handle on the MCM5. The because of its weird shape, MCM5 is more difficult to set next to me on the train. I used to lean the V8 against my seat at such an angle that I didn’t have to worry about it falling over during a rough train ride. I have to rest the MCM5 on its end and trust that it won’t get knocked over, or keep my hand on it while sitting to give me peace of mind. The MCM5 gets hot. I never felt heat emanate from the V8 (but that may be because I had a cover on it). I nervously monitored my temperature on DarknessBot as the temperature climbed to 117 degrees Fahrenheit on the way home today. I never used DarknessBot with the V8, so I had no sense of whether this was too hot (upon searching this forum, my fears were allayed). The smaller, 14-inch wheel didn't translate into a harsher ride. In fact, I hardly noticed that I was rolling on a smaller wheel. The MCM5 is a joy to ride. It is much zippier than the V8, and it feels much more stable at speeds exceeding 18 mph. Moreover, it is much easier to mount the MCM5. I still haven’t experienced the tilt-back. So far my top speed is 23 mph. I would hit the tilt-back on the V8 all the time. Overall, I’m very happy with my purchase of the MCM5, but on my first day of commuting, I can appreciate what a great commuter wheel the V8 was. I’ll use this thread to update my thoughts on the MCM5 as a commuter as I get more experience with it. In the meantime, I plan to use the V8 to teach my friends how to ride. I eventually want my daughters to learn, too, so perhaps I’ll buy a new battery for it down the line. Thanks for reading!
  18. I have ridden the InMotion V8 with the original V8 pedals for around 9000 km and with the V10 pedals for around 2000 km. This is a quick comparison of the pedals. Specs, V8 vs V10: Pedal length: 212mm vs 241mm Pedal weight: 650g vs 1100g (for both pedals) Surface: grip tape vs rubber V8: the grip tape is not very durable^1 and not very grippy when worn down, which takes only a few 100 km for me. The pedal position is somewhat more V-shaped on the new wheel, which is to me a little less comfortable, but pedals lose their shape over time anyway^2. When riding on loose ground, the pedals seem less forgiving by allowing less control against unintended sideway turns of the wheel. V10: the rubber gives reasonable and predictable grip and is much more durable. The pedal size is more comfortable for my size 10 feet. One pedal has broken apart after 2000 km. The same problem has been observed by others^3. Overall, I'd definitely prefer the comfortable V10 pedals for their size and surface durability, if they would not break . With the experience of breaking, the V10 pedals are not a viable option anymore, at least not for me. ^1 https://forum.electricunicycle.org/topic/6483-v8-pedal-durability/ ^2 https://forum.electricunicycle.org/topic/10542-v8-pedals-lost-v-shape/ https://forum.electricunicycle.org/topic/13649-v10v10f-pedals-drooping-how-to-fix/ ^3 https://forum.electricunicycle.org/topic/13223-broken-pedal/ https://forum.electricunicycle.org/topic/13649-v10v10f-pedals-drooping-how-to-fix/

  20. The V8 that I have seems to need filling at least once a week. How often do you guys fill yours? The stock tyre/tube seems to lose about 10psi a week. I pump it to 37 psi and about a week later, it's down to 25psi. Is this normal or do I have a leak?
  21. Hello, I just bought a V8 and installed the Android app (v 7.3.3). I cannot figure out how to change the LED lighting effects. There is an "Apply" button in the upper right corner when I choose the active effect (which does nothing). When I choose a different effect there is a "Trans" button which does not do anything at all. Can somebody help me with this issue? Thanks a lot!
  22. Where's a good place to get parts for a V8 in Canada? Specifically I need an inner tube, and I'd rather not pay an arm and leg for shipping and duty, etc. Where can I get one cheap? Can I save a bunch of money and use this one from Walmart? https://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/bell-sports-16-self-sealing-inner-tube/6000189084450
  23. I hope to encourage @Bobwheel and Inmotion/Solowheel to share more info on the new V10 gen. app for android. Of course, some development updates/ info and expected release date would be nice to know too. As for features, can someone confirm if this app will support any tope of smart watch/wear type to show speed and maybe even a horn/bell option. The last part is high on my interest list due to road legality/ traffic laws.
  24. Hi i have one new not activated inmotion v8.
