Eman Posted August 2, 2016 Share Posted August 2, 2016 Hi Guys, please no comments "why" I'm thinking about making my KS-16 faster and please no comments about "Did you read the Topics about 'falling off at more than 30 km/h..." I was thinking about the following when I downgraded my KS-16 from Firmware 1.20 to 1.18: Due to the downgrade procedure I downloaded a wrong 16B.bin file from this forum which almost bricks my wheel. BUT, I had still the possibility to get my wheel to work again. When I went to the downgrading page at my app, it let me select the firmware for "every" Kingsong model. I needed to select manually which one fits. Of course I choose the KS-16-B which is my model. But I was thinking about: "What would happen If I would install the Firmware for the KS-18AZ+"? I assume, the A, A+, AZ+... stands just for the Battery version and maks the correct calculation for the "still possible ride-able kilometers. As The KS 18 comes as well with 680 WH, the KS-18AZ+ Firmware could fit perfect. Furthermore I did the following calculation: At 30 km/h we drive 8,333 m/s. The Tire on the KS-16-B has the following size: 57-305 what makes a length of 1316 mm. That means, at 30 km/h the wheel is turning with 6,33 rps. If I assume now the Tire-Size on the KS-18 with 57-355 the length is 1473 mm. At a speed of 40 km/h, we drive 11,111 m/s. that means 7,54 rps. If I calculate that down to the KS-16, it would mean, with 1316 mm length, 7,54 rps results in 9,93 m/s what means 35,7 km/h. => If the Firmware 1.18 from KS-18 is running on the KS-16, it means that at a speed setting till 40 km/h, the wheel drives 35 km/h. Many times I pushed the tilt back more after coming up and 35 is really no problem for the motor. For long distances maybe yes. But the 35 for me is just needed to catch sometimes the faster bicycle-drivers. Haha. Questions: 1. Can someone with a KS-18 please post the exact wheel size? It's written on the size of the wheel... 2. Can someone post the Firmware 1.18 for the KS-18 with a 680 WH-Version??? Meanings? No advices about the security if it has nothing to do with bricking the wheel... Emanuel Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
