Inmotion V11 in need of repair


Recommended Posts

My poor inmotion v11, I bought it second hand but in new condition as my first euc.

I have ridden it for around 2 weeks and gotten fairly good at riding it but a bit overconfident.

I was going down a fairly steep hill when I decided to try go top speed, not knowing the wheel would beep and max power and force me to slow, so I wobbled and fell downhill pretty fast.

I got away "lucky" with just some road rash on my knees, but the unicycle didn't fair quite so well as it kept sliding/bouncing away.

The plastic support struts for the leg cushions on both sides have snapped off and the entire handle assembly has broken in 4 places and snapped a suspension rod at the same time.

Im new to eucs and am trying to find the parts to repair it myself as it seems not too hard, but I can't find any parts.

Im in Wales, United Kingdom, if anyone has any advice on where I could go to either get the parts or get it repaired I'd really appreciate it, I can't wait to get back out on the euc, I'm hooked for life.

MyEwheel in Bulgaria has some V11 parts listed, but the shock is out of stock at the moment:

Thanks for the suggestion but I'm going to try order all the parts at once if possible.

My next idea is ordering from ewheels.com in the US and using a postal service to get the parts to the UK.

Maybe I should order some parts from myewheel to save on postage from the US though, thank you for the site!

EUCO are often good at listing parts and seems fairly cheap. But from US to EU/UK you get custom fees too. 

In general shipping is much more expensive now that a year ago. I have been told my company pays 4x or more to ship a container from Asia to EU now. And in general many parts are out of stuck because of electronic components are needed as ice cubes in Sahara. This start to impact other non electronic components too. 

I know that Inmotion don't have drive boards for V11 for now as I am waiting for that right now. Luckily I made the decision to buy a 2nd V11 I can ride for now.
