I also have a KS18A (even older) than yours (800 w), so thanks!

Does anyone know if this has been changed on the KS18S? I also have one of those and ride the hell out of it, so probably building up some good heat!

What’s your total mileage of your 18A you already rode?

my app is telling me 2700km.

I'm nowhere near that. I only have 93 Km on mine. :) So maybe I'm good for quite a while.

So I gave my wheel to a good friend who is professionally repairing electronics. So he replaced this weak connector with highpower-connector which are also used for rc planes etc. 

Can you please share of photo of the new 6 pin connector your friend installed?

This ones are very similar...

He used 3 single banana connectors for the 3 motor power lines. (Which are used for high power LiPo battery connections for rc helicopters)  From the old connector he simply separated the power lines from the hall sensor lines. The hall sensor lines stayed in place of the original connector. He fixed the connector at the ends with shrinking tube. Sorry I can’t send you a picture how it actually looks like. Everything is closed and the side pads are again sticked with double sided tape. But maybe in a few months if the tire gets slick and needs to be replaced.

 Very good! Glad everything worked out. It sounds like your friend did a professional job on the repair. Enjoy!
