KT-LCD3 Stuck

Can't get off screen that says "Sour 2" (Source 2). Only thing I can adjust is PAS 0-5. Shows Celcius also and thats it.

Is there a secret trick to exiting this screen, I have tried everything.

Re: 36v 500w kit or 48v 1200w?

I have ebikeling's 36V 500W geared motor with the 3 level PAS and LED/controller. I run it on a steel frame Trek 800 from 1990. Top speed for me on throttle is 20 mph, and I can hit that just as easy in PAS 3. However, a good ride for me will average 13 mph. The PAS is pretty simple, with limits of...

Re: 36v 500w kit or 48v 1200w?

Another consideration is the winds in Kansas. I want something that can handle that and not burn up. I am just fine going a much slower speed on those days, no problem. Surely the geared motor for the 700c would be a slow wind of 201 rpm, so it will be happy spinning slower as opposed to higher rpm ...

Re: 36v 500w kit or 48v 1200w?

[quote="wesnewell"]If you get a kit with the LCD display, it should have a way to select the battery voltage, or the LVC. If the kit has just the controller and no display, then your 36V battery will cut off real quick with the typical 42V LVC of most 48V controllers. Ask the seller to be sure, or g...

Re: 36v 500w kit or 48v 1200w?

this one is easy, buy the 22 amps, 36v kit. If you pull 26 amps, you'll just stress the battery more each ride, wear it out faster, etc. You will have plenty of power with the 36v kit, and a lighter wheel. ( about 800w peak) You said you are a light rider, so you don't need the overload capacity of...

Ok thanks, Wes. Corrected!

So no low voltage cutoff problem for the 26amp controller? What do I need to program it?

We got about 20 minutes of sprinkles last night, starting just as I left work and ending shortly after I got home, with nothing else after that till tonight. Tonight around 9pm-ish it began to get...

Mobile is certainly better in this version, but I really enjoy Tapatalk for the ease of posting images.

Two 328's with a 100 lb. rider would do 30 mph on a 48 V battery.
That would be a wild ride!
