  1. Hello, there are some rumors about V8/V8F/V8S not having balancing, also heard something about V10 not having it. That looks not plausible to me for V10. About V8 I heard some cases where the range dropped significantly and it was found the cells were not in balance. Mr Wrong Way warns people about it in his videos. So I would be glad if someone could solve this mystery. Is there someone who had teardown their V8 pack and inspected the BMS?
  2. I bought the InMotion V8F a couple of months ago and have really enjoyed learning to ride. I've already put nearly 300 miles on it. When I was first learning to ride, I bailed at around 18-20 mph when it was wobbling hard and I didn't know how to stop it. It ended up smashing into a curb, and that crash has caused some minor cracks in both the inner and outer shells. I have since repaired the cracks with plastic putty, and I have also tightened the axle with some Loctite after it came loose and began to vibrate. Now, whenever I lean the wheel to the left far enough (away from the control board side) it begins to vibrate, but not when upright or leaning right. I've made sure to tighten down everything pretty well, and I'm still confused as to why it vibrates only when leaning to one side. It's more of a nuisance than anything, but if anyone has any suggestions on how to fix this annoyance, let me know.
  3. I recently had my InMotion V8 with a full battery, a few minutes into a ride start tilting back then slowing down to a stop with all of the LEDs flashing red. I tried turning it off but was not able to for a minute or two, but eventually it went off. I was able to immediately turn it back on and it seemed fine. I rode it another minute or so at a medium speed and less than a minute later the same thing happens. It has now happened maybe 10 or so times. If I ride really slow, it rarely triggers the kickback. But if I go up a hill or more than like 10 miles an hour it's not too long before the severe tiltback occurs. Any thoughts? Oh, my machine is probably 3-4 years old but InMotion in San Diego replaced the motherboard for me less than 2 years ago because it had failed on me. But since that replacement it was perfect until just now.
  4. 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!
  5. Selling InMotion V8 as no use for it, never used outside, only very short use inside, little scratches. Has box as new and charger and all accessories. £550 open to offers
  6. Hello Folks, I'm a Ninebot One S2 (S1) Rider and pretty satisfied with that package, especially regarding it's movability and handling. But I'm missing a little *whoom* and therefore I'm thinking over to switch to something like V8 or KS-16S... in the first place. Now I read the rumours about the announced shiny new KS-18L or Ninebot Z, both 18 Inch. So, what is your option, should I Upgrade to 16" - or even better to 18"? What are the advantages/disadvantages? What about the riding comfort (e.g. City ride, long distance ride, gravel road, bumpy road etc) - are there big differences between 16" and 18" or do they behave more or less pretty similar? Will a 18 inch wheel be suitable for inner City usage or is it much less movable/agile, compared to a 16 inch Model? Thank you for you opinions/experiences Rgds, Borg
  7. 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.
  8. Hello EUC Forum Members, TL;DR: Help me pick between a V5F+ and V8 for a thin tall lightweght guy commuting 5 miles each way in the hellish temperatures of FL but who may move to PNW or UK and may need 10 miles each way. I posted yesterday in the General forum about deciding between the heavily discounted Segway One S1 and the V5F+. I knew I wanted the Inmotion wheel but liked the idea of learning on the cheap Segway plus finances are stretched right now. I ended up not getting the S1 leaving me thoroughly in Inmotion territory. I'm pretty fixedd on the idea of the V5F+ but the current sale price of the V8 on ewheels puts it at a comparable price range. So once again I turn to the experience of this forum for help. About Me: 39 years old. 155lb. 6ft 1in. In other words tall and skinny. I'm into tiny living and greatly appreciate portability, compact size, light weight, quality build, longevity, simplicity and repairability in a product. Getting all these in a product would be awesome but I'm happy to sacrifice slightly on some of these desired traits for big gains in others and will pay extra for something that ticks all the boxes. I enjoy cycling and this has been my main method of commuting (Brompton H6R) but current conditions make doings so the absolute puts (see environment below). No experience on unicycles, electric or otherwise. I will be learning on this device. Environment: RIght now I live in coastal Florida. It's hot. Horribly hot...and humid. Usage can be expected in temperatures ranging from low 80's in the morning to mid 90's in the afternoon. I try to avoid being out in the Florida rain storms but if caught out then it is like raining through a wall of water at times. Storms are normally short and avoidable but torrential. I avoid deep puddles but in the storm standing water draining from the road can be a 1/4 inch deep. Terrain is flat as a pancake apart form the odd canal bridge. Florida is not forever though. In the next 12 months I expect to find myself either in the Pacific North West or England. SImilar environmentally to each other. Moderate temperatures. Rarely hot or cold. Usage from mid 40's to mid 70's. Hills are a distinct possibility but I'm not going to insist my EUC drag me up the equivalent of Everest. I'd rather walk it than burn the device out. Rain is highly likely in the places. Unavoidable due to its persistence but generally lighter in nature. Usage: Mainly commuting and errand running. Commuting right now is 5 miles each way but I'd like the optio to do a little more and I'm not sure what the commute will be when I move. The odd recreational cruise would also be desirable. Not looking to do tricks, stunts etc. Maybe some trail rides/grass etc but not looking to off road the thing. What I'm Looking For: Crazy top speed is not important to me. I've no desire to loose excessive skin, any teeth, or my life. Mid to upper teens will be more than enough I think, but I'd like to be able to set my tilt back a few MPH under the EUC limit to allow a good reserve of power for safety's sake. I want the EUC to be able to deliver if I screw up and overlean or hit an unexpected pothole, bump that requires extra power for stability. I would prefer to have a larger battery/long range. I don't expect to use it all up but would like to not have to charge at work. For longevity purposes I'd also prefer to use a charge doctor to cut off the charge at 75 to 80% capacity and only run it down to around 25%. This is because I'd like to eek as much Life from the battery as I can regarding charge cycles while retaining a usable range once it starts to age and capacity drops. I also don't want to drain lower than 25% to ensure good power delivery when needed for safety, even at the end of my day when I'm wrapping up my commute. Right now my commute would just be using the EUC. In the future it could involve buss or train so portability and size is important. Headlamp is highly desirable, tail light is desirable. I like to be seen. I have a great head mounted front and rear light unit on my bike helmet (Light and Motion Vis 360) but the more the better. I'm not going to be in the financial position to have multiple wheels so this device has to last me a few years. This is why getting it right first time round, reliability, and maintainability through self repair is important. I hope this covers what I am looking for well enough to get advice. Below are the pros of both the V5F+ and V8. I'd appreciate additional input on suitability and which you would choose having had experience with EUCs. Pro's of the V5F+ over the V8: Awesome range allowing 50% charging cycles, plenty of reserve after anticipated use and margin for degradation overt time. Lightweight. Compact size, Calf and optional ankle padding Good tail light Slightly cheaper Posts suggest this is a very well built reliable EUC (I've seen some build quality issues in posts about the V8; tire rubbing, LED's quitting, water affecting the power button) Not covered in crazy lighting Pro's of the V8 over the V5F+ More powerful motor when needed (unexpected events, carrying extra load (groceries in a pack)) Good top speed allowing room for a power reserve during unexpected events? 16" wheel (I ride a Brompton folding bicycle with 16" wheels and already feel every bump. Going smaller raises concern for stability in the face of potholes, bad sidewalks etc) I would purchase form ewheels. The V5F+ is $895 right now. I would add the $100 bundle as I want the trolley handle and cover (for protection while learning). The fast charger would be a bonus but I'd probably not use it so may sell it to recoup costs. This brings the V5F+ cost to $995 without any claw back form the sale of the fast charger! Ouch. The V8 is $999. Trolley handle is built in so no extra cost there but I would buy a cover at $49. No fast charger with the V8 so couldn't recoup anything. Total for the V8 would be $1048. Difference between the two is just $53. So. What do you think. Are my pro's valid? Any I didn't think of? Any of them invalid or just not worth being a pro? Input and opinions after you put yourself in my shoes.

  10. 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
  11. I bought a new case for my V8 off AliExpress and received something that doesn't fit - can you guys help me identify it? - My V8 is a "SoloWheel", and it has a red stripe around it. Are there "InMotion" V8s out there with a different case? It's possible this is the answer. - Otherwise it could be a V8F or V5/F case. - Below is a photo of the two halfs on top of each other for comparison(the old case is on top with the red stripe, the new one is below). If you look very closely you can see the notches that hold the case to the wheel do not match up. Also note the new case on the bottom has screw holes in the top (where the pad would be on a V8F). Anyone recognize it?
  12. I'm just past 2000 KM on my beloved V8 which got me curious what the world record is. I'm sure there are V8s out there that have done 5k,10k, even 15k. So : How far have you gone on your V8? Do you know someone that went ever further? Post details!
  13. 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?
  14. 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
  15. 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?
  16. 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
  17. 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)
  18. 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.
  19. 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
  20. 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™
  21. 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
  22. 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?
  23. 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
  24. 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
  25. 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?
