That diagnostic tool video up above...where can you get that program? Or is it for authorized dealers and technicians only? I'd love to fine tune my ebike through a computer laptop interface running that program. Thanks,
Pretty sure it is dealer only, and that looks like the European software, as when he removes the speed limiter, it talks about breaking the 25kph limit - that is the European limit, not the US limit. I'm sure there would be a US version of the software since we have different requirements. I noticed all the other values are set to the fast setting by default, so I don't think we'd get anything out of it even if end users did have access. I think if you look in @Ravi Kempaiah 's subsequent posts they did try using the software to change it and there was no effect as far as speed limit.
They still have the throttle active in the "0" mode only the 4 levels of PAS remain as PAS only. Personally I prefer not having an active throttle in any of the PAS modes but others like that feature. The debate can go either way as we have some customers who have bikes with the throttle override available on all levels and want it disconnected as when they are cycling they tend to move hand positions and sometimes engage the throttle slightly and get a push when not wanted. But once again that's a personal preference.
Certainly on the Easy Motion mountain bikes that use to have a throttle (rear hub versions) now have the throttle removed which is a good thing. If you are doing more serious riding one would not want an active throttle due to safety issues when slipping which happens all the time when trail riding.
I don't think any system is bad, it's more of a personal preference for the riders.
Great feedback Bob!
