    Bafang SWX02 hub motor pretty dead. Get some help here?

    yup, already ordered one. now i have to source a cable to convert the waterproof plug to stuff the tester can use. only one i can find on amazon so far isn't on prime and i don't trust things i can't return, esp since this one has no reviews. thanks, tho, for the suggestion.

    What determines low-speed ramp-up smoothness?
