Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

have you tried re-aligning them?

1. Loosen the caliper bolts so the caliper is 'just' free
2. Squeeze brake lever hard
3. Tighten caliper bolts while squeezing brake lever
4. release lever and test.

Good luck

Re: Bafang M500/M600 thread

The BESST system is kind of and inventory management system. It's designed to keep track of your Bafang parts, different bike models and what parts they have in them. Once you add a customer you can link which bike they have from your line up of different models. You will probably be fine, but they ...

Re: Bafang M500/M600 thread

So indeed a Supplier can create a BESST user account for their customers, and they can allow the 'tools' options to update the wheel diameter and speed limits.

It was done for compliance purposes. It doesn't meet EN15194 of you can alter the settings on the display and that's the European market.

Re: Bafang M500/M600 thread

No Problems. I have been thinking about the M500 vs M600. I've ridden both, I currently have the M600 installed on the bike, and it is noticably a huge difference compared to the M500. I typicaly ride single track mountain bike park trails (not "Bike Park" jump tracks) just trails. Some have jumps, ...

Re: Bafang M500/M600 thread

M500 and M600 are the same physical mounts. I have mounted both to the same bike.

The M500 is MM G520.250
The M600 is MM G521.500

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

It's certainly not an easy process, but it can be done.. The issue is knowing all the correct forms, where to go etc. how to pay port charges etc. You can get a customs clearance agent who will pick it up and hold it at their depot.. I have done this in the past and it is the least effort, with a mi...

Yes, you can only get a Besst account if you are a Bafang dealer.

But the point is that it is possible...

Contrary to earlier advice from Bafang, you actually can reconfigure the wheel size and upper speed limits using the Besst Programmer and software.

I had the 350W version and it was very quiet, a brilliant drive I thought. the higher power ones were louder.

Re: Silent mid-drive torque e-bike motor

TSDZ is about as quiet as it gets for bolt-on drives with torque sensing. not really much else available.

Re: Bafang M500/M600 thread

Maybe this will get you going...

The 100.1 and the 100.2 look like 100mm, and the 180.9 is probably 181 considering half way measured 90.5mm. a bit of trig will get you the angles.

can't give the whole file sorry..

I have left mine for many days at a time battery connected with a soft-off by the button and have never noticed a drop in charge. I wouldn't leave it like that for months though.

Interesting to see the note about the nominal voltage of 42.

Does that mean they are using 13 LiFePO4 cells in series in the battery pack that you reference?
No actually it's 12s 18650's

But that is the OEM Bafang brand. luna don't use them, nor do Dengfu, I believe.

Re: Bafang M500/M600 thread

In my opinion the M500 is more like the European motors, I've ridden Bosch, brose, Shimano and Yamaha. All very similar to the M500.

The M600 feels much more powerful to me. But I'll reserve my judgement until after the ride tomorrow

The OEM Bafang runs on 42V nominal. Not 48V

Re: Bafang M500/M600 thread

I finally got around to testing the M600. After only a brief run up the street on Level 1 my first impressions are: It is significantly more powerfull than the M500 *surprise* It is significantly louder than the M500 I really like the higher speed limit >25km/h I didn't even get out of level 1 and i...

Re: Wayne’s Dengfu Carbon Fibre FS 27.5” with Bafang M600 (throttle also)

I've ridden Bosch, Yamaha, brose and Shimano and on mid setting "trail" mode I cannot tell the difference between any of them and the M500. Torque sensing is smooth and responsive enough to navigate through tight technical obstacles or ride up stair cases. On boost mode they all feel similar in that...

I'm even running the m500... I might email them just to see if they would consider it. Maybe it was too so with the trade restrictions USA and China?

This is the mod that everyone does on their Shimano and Bosch drives.

Works fine but as you said the speed is all whacked....

Re: Bafang M500/M600 thread

Is there a particular reason why you want to program the controller? As a torque sensor pedal assist, the motor is fantastic as it is. It has plenty of power to rip up single trails. My guess is that with any other controller you will lose the integrated feel and just end up with a throttle mid drive.
