Hi, I just received my first ebike, RadRunner1, I would like to replace the LED display to an LCD display. The upgrade LCD they sell at Radpowerbikes.ca is $130+tax+shipping which is around $160. I've checked aliexpress and they sell a whole bunch of LCD displays for cheaper. Anyone know the model of the controller on the Radrunner1 (Canadian version)? Thanks

I know I'm not really helping you, but do you have a plan to upgrade your controller as well?

I'm asking because if you do, it's easier to get a Bolton or Electro Bike World kit, this way you know for sure that new display will work.

The RadRunner LCD display is made by King Meter.

King Meter SW-LCD is the model.

King Meter displays are usually swappable, so just get another King Meter and you should be able to just plug and play.

Can't seem to find any sellers selling King Meter displays on aliexpress, plenty of KT and Bafang lcd displays.

Anyone know the controller brand and model the radrunner uses? I can ask sellers if their lcd display works with the radrunner controller.

unfortunetly alibaba is for sellers, so you'll have to order atleast 50 units or more. Aliexpress is like ebay, but no King-Meter lcd displays. Yeah most of the stuff Rad Power Bikes are just Chinese OEM that Rad puts their name on it. So it should be possible to find cheaper original Chinese parts without the Rad branding.

Try searching for an SW-900 LCD. I think that might be what you're after. That's what my RAD City was using originally.

I still think you need a sellers licence or something for Alibaba, have you ever bought items from Alibaba? Aliexpress is their site for regular consumers and I use it regularly.
 
Sorry if this is slightly off-topic, but I have an Overfly ebike with an SW-LCD display that I want to swap out for a color display. Does anyone know if the KT-LCD8H can be swapped for the SW-LCD. Again sorry if this is too far afield but I saw that the SW-LCD was mentioned...

You don't need a sellers license. I just signed up with a fake company name.

Wish I had better news for you, but the only way the KT displays will work is on a KT controller. If it's just color you're after, do a search on King Meter LCD. They make that SW-LCD, and I'm pretty sure they have some color displays. What I don't know is if they'll work for you....
