@Master Blaster nice! thanks for the FYI.

I've been exclusively riding my KS18S to get to 1,000km, now up to 300km, but looks like I can stop neglecting my other wheels now, hooray!

@houseofjob, please update this thread after trying this fix.  I.e. Please confirm or deny the fix in actual application.

Sure thing. So far so good, I was able to set alarm/tiltback to 50kph just as @Master Blaster has.

Will take some time for me to actually ride 50kph, as I am distrustful of wheels post-firmware update.

Just got back from test run, works just fine, I blew by the 40km/h mark with no speed warning or tilt back. I have the number 1 and 2 warnings turned off, and number 3 set at 48km/h with the tilt back set at 50 km/h.

You have to use the new app, not the old green and black one (I kept both on my Android phone just in case) - just follow the instrictions posted in the thread “New firmware Kingsong Ks-16S” for finding and installing the new app.......

Try this link from KingSong's chinese Website for the latest Release of the new App: http://www.kswheel.cn/list-28.html

Once I had the new KS App loaded the firmware upgrade only took about 3 to 5 minutes - piece of cake, except you have to create a KS account in the new App to get this working if you don't already have one, no big deal.

Test velocity and firmware with ks16s or with ks 18?

thanks

Although I mentioned that the firmware upgrade is the same procedure mentioned in another thread here for the 16S, as far as the speed unlock we are talking about here is concerned we are referring to the speed restriction unlock for the 18S which was formerly locked until the 18S reached 1,000 km......now that has been lowered with the new firmware upgrade to just 200 km for the KS 18S - sorry if by mentioning the 16S I created any confusion.

Here is a screen shot of my speed settings in the new KS App for the 18S after I did the firmware update (1.04) and with approximately 730 km on my 18S (less than the old requirement of 1,000km).  Although the sliders go up to 60 km/h you can only use 50 km/h or less, anything above 50 km/h set on the sliders will obviously not save to the Wheel.

Thats a nice move from KS!

Btw.:

One of the advantages of KS....upgradable wheel firmware! Your wheel gets better over time :-)

On my older Ks18A the motor driver/wheel behaviour has got a lot better over the firmware updates!

Will be interesting if more is coming for the 14/16/18S :-)

And yet over the same period of time the riders get older and worser!  Doesn't seem fair to me :huh:

I just got clocked at 32 mph on my way to the Rose Bowl yesterday with the new firmware. Feels very solid now above 25mph. The firmware seems to have fixed an anomolous oscilation that could inspire the wobbles when going downhill or at fast speeds.

This thing rides like an old Cadillac or Lincoln Continental. Just cruising at 25mph feels so smooth and effortless now. The seated position is getting easier to manage along winding trails too. 

I will post a quick vid of the radar sign getting my speed on the road. I wonder if the 1000km idea was to give KS time to polish the firmware to make the wheel more stable! ?

Glad they did as you can see below...

 

Nice try, but we all know that there was a car overtaking you from behind ;)

I guess you're be leaving me behind in the dust in our next group ride, because I have no intention of ever riding faster then ~25-mph. BTW, you missed a nice ride yesterday :)

If my Director and Lawyer werent on east coast time I wouldve been on that ride by the time they called. I was just loading up the car when they called. I thought it was you guys saying it was too cold (59° is cold for Southern Cal. :rolleyes:) . The contracts are signed now, so no further escuses. 

Yeah, I really wanted to scout out those trails before I start the quest for a "EUC across the City" Honor role for the Forum. We need to inspire more people to accomplish tasks to raise participation and awareness. We can list the City navigation maps in another place on the forum for travelers or fanatics. ?

Oh and there was a giant dump truck pretty far behind me, but I passed them at the last Stop sign. I did get passed by an old Toyota mini van from the 90's just when I was thinking I was going fast. Lol perspective means a lot. ?

Awesome! Now we just need them to upgrade another 10kmph! 

I want to do 40mph on a wheel! Crazy?

Obviously! ?

You could try the registration with your number and the chinese country code. I had to do this with one of my Inmotions and it worked. Sometimes the default is China for the country code and we forget to check it being too much in a rush to get the stupid process over with. :furious: .  Maybe thats just me.

Thanks for the suggestion.. however you can see in the screen capture I did use the correct country code, and I got a valid code back from them.. (that was a first)

however, it still failed from that point. Am I supposed to enter a password at that point? It seems so, so I did (a strong one) and it failed.. (so I went thru the procedure again with a simple password to ensure I wasn’t breaking password rules) failed again. ????
