JB01 Posted August 23, 2016 Share Posted August 23, 2016 Hi all, just a quick summary of a problem I had with KS16 which is now resolved with the good support of @Jason McNeil So I have a KS16 which I had been riding for about a month when I heard a scraping noise somewhere from the machine. It turned out that one of the "arms" between the foot stand and the wheel was so bent that it scraped against the when when I was turning/leaning. I contacted Jason from whom I bought the wheel and got replacement parts straight away which I'm really grateful for. So after taking the poor thing apart I never managed to get the foot stands off so I could not change the hole "arm". Instead I just changed the bolts and the upper part of the "arm" and that seems to have done the trick. I haven't gone very far yet so worst case I'll get the same problem again but I kind of doubt that. Anyway, this is just a general message if you have the same problem then it might very well be a quite easy thing to get fixed so don't panic like I did. I'm 90 kg and don't ride like crazy (over 40), but it might be that this has happen when I was training doing a one foot start (2*90 on one side). So what I'm thinking here is that maybe it's possible to get some better harden bolts if the problem comes back. The only question is how much torque I dare to use when the "arms" are aluminum. A final note is that the faulty bolts are straight so my guess is that the material got weaker allowing it to flex. Separating this arm into two different sections looks like a bad design choice compared to ninebot that only uses one piece of metal but maybe there is some good reason for it.
