Customizing my Wallke X3 pro

Since getting the bike on Sept. 24, I have been doing mods to the bike. My list so far:

1. Added front and rear fenders ( Ecotric Fat bike fenders SH-DNB002-B )
2. Replaced saddle to Selle Royal Commuter
3. Replaced pedals (K-PEDC Aluminum)
4. Installed Lizard Skins Chainstay protector ( Medium )
5. Installed Chain guide tensioner ( this prevents the chain from slipping off when riding off-road )
6. Installed a 1200 Lumens LED rechargeable bike light on the steering post.
7. Added a handlebar extender and moved the iPhone charger to it.
8. Upgraded the front rotors to 203mm ( Shimano SMRT66 6-bolt rotor ) - you will need a mounting bracket ( PM to PM - post mount to post mount brake adapter ) - improved my braking and no more scraping noise from the front on Tektro rotors when hard braking
9. Upgraded the rear rotors to 180
10. Covered the Wallke logos with some carbon fiber vinyl
11. Replaced the Tourney derailleur with an Altus derailleur
12. Changed the chain from KMC Z-series to KMC X-series 8-speed chain - you will need to order 2 chains. The current chain has 128 links. 8-speed chains are 116. Break off 12 from one donor chain and add to the replacement.
13. Added Missing Link chain connector from KMC
14 Added rear view mirrors and installed on left shock absorber
15. Upgraded the rear warning light ( Don Pergrino B2-110 Lumens bike light )
16. Added orange slime on front and rear tires ( i ran over the infamous goat head seed and punctured the front tire )
17. Changed rear shock from HLT-100 to DNM-AO6 adjustable gas shock


Whew.

Nice. Changing out the rear shock made one of the biggest differences IMO. That and putting on a 780mm handlbar & better grips.

Thanks man. Looks great. How are the fenders holding up?
I bought the Ecotric Fenders and the rear fender snapped off the first ride!
I'm shopping for a replacement brand now.

Anyone have any thoughts?

Yeah. I snapped off mine today. It was fine at the previous setup. Tweaked my previous safe setup and lowered it down to 1 inch above the rear tire. This was after I bumped up my rear shock to 150 psi.

BAD IDEA.

Went out for a bike ride and was on my usual route, 1 mile away from home, going downhill around 28 mph, turn left and let the suspension take the corner... bam, i thought my tire blew out or ripped off the rim. NOPE. rear wheel ripped off the fender and was jammed between the tire and suspension arms.

Bad design from Ecotric, stupid setup from me....

Had to turn around and pick up the broken pieces and ride back with throttle only, while holding the broken parts.

Maybe gorilla glue can fix it up........NOT!

I second the 780 bars....wow what a difference!! Feel way more stable and I can ride with no hands now!
Left: 640mm Mustach bars
Middle: stock Wallke bars
Right: 780mm Pro taper 20/20 Stealths ($tupid expensive)

Have any of you Wallke owners pulled off a sweet jump?

They look massive in comparison to the wallke bars , I think for now the base bars are working fine for me with an extender bar so I can add the extras
