Couple of things....there seems to be a fair amount of crank-slap when pedaling .....can that be adjusted?....also do you always have to be pedaling to use the electric boost?....at 9 on the power the pedal can't keep up but once you stop pedaling the motor shuts down....is this normal?...can straight motor be used without pedaling?
thanks

I have no idea what you mean by "crank-slap" but the throttle can be used without pedaling.

if you stop pedalling then get back on it the crank has to re engage and there's play in there where it clunks getting back to pedalling.....
watched the video and the motor sounds like it shuts down shortly after he quits pedalling.....i would think you should be able to just use throttle for propulsion.
