    My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

    Ha, I now have drumroll in my front brake! Not as bad as it was in the rear but the MDR-P rotors didn't completely solve things. I'm hoping when I replace my front pads it will go away.

    Bafang M500/M600 thread

    I've ridden both M600 and Brose Mag S and there is no comparison. The Brose is very smooth and refined but if you put them both in the highest PAS up a gravel road the M600 is going win the race every time unless there is something wrong with the motor. Might be a different story on a more...

    Bafang M620/G510 (and all other Bafang motors) now on CAN-BUS (2021+) rather than UART (2018-2020)?

    A couple months ago I asked Watt Wagons about that and it sounded like you can't just swap controllers because there is actually some hardware on the motor (separate from controller) that is specific to UART or CANBUS, so they needed a translation chip to make that hardware on CANBUS motors work...

    Ha, I was also just checking back to see if there was any update.

    Bafang M500/M600 thread

    I'm 100% convinced Luna is totally clueless about this motor and would have absolutely nothing to offer. All they accomplished was to put shitty firmware on their M600 motors at the insistence of Bafang who was worried about liability with the 2x ludi mod. Bafang was the one that actually did...

    Bafang M500/M600 thread

    Just checking back in to this thread as I'm planning to rid myself of Luna'a custom (aka cluster) firmware. Is 46.7 a recent release? The date indicates it was released back in November so I'm guessing not. How does it compare to 46.6? On the luna forum the consensus seems to be 46.6 wasn't...

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

    In terms of smoothness, I would think that's a function of firmware as opposed to controller. Have you considered ordering the BESST tool from Luna to experiment with various firmware? https://lunacycle.com/bafang-besst-service-tool/ I decided to pick one up as the Luna X1 tuning is garbage...

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

    Ok, sorrry but this made me. :lol: :lol: :lol: Be advised you may also need to pony up another $100 for the BESST tool from Luna (unless you already have it) to rid yourself of their M600 "tuning" (IME worthless PAS in levels below 50%). Then again, maybe they will do it on request...

    Dengfu E06, Wafa or Haibike?

    Battery life on Ultra with stock controller is disappointing. The aftermarket innotrace controller improves range by 20% or more IME and many other benefits. Since you are in North America I would consider Watt Wagon's upcoming FS carbon bike...

    Hi, can you clarify which Luna forum? Do you have a link to the topic?

    My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

    Same version (TK419). Any additional suffix just signifies various options none of which are useful for ebike use. I purchased mine on Amazon with express shipping as I wanted it fast. Arrived in less than a week. More details here...

    My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

    This GPS Tracker is working great in my Frey CC secured in the downtube near the internal routing holes and hardwired to internal battery. I tapped into the charging port which has a fuse. Frey might consider offering it as a pre-installed option (although users would need to remove it to...

    My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

    I am not sure I understand but why does it matter for innotrace controller? Does it not have a cap? Also, my CC display with innotrace controller reads ~1v less than measured directly by my voltmeter. Could this be due to a battery diode? Or are they only used with dual battery setup?

    Bafang M500/M600 thread

    Luna is of no help. I am in contact with Bafang USA's warranty rep to see what they might be able to do about the low PAS issues. I inquired about how I could update to the latest firmware without sending my motor in. This is the latest from him: First I've heard of a controller problem. I...

    My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

    You can't use eggrider. I believe they are coming out with a display pretty much identical to the eggrider which you can program the controller on the fly. The only cons are integrated lights don't work due to step down voltage issues. I replaced my rear light with a manual rechargeable light...

    Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

    Those are 250W nominal euro-spec motors so they can get away with it. From what I've read Gates spec does not allow for tensioner with higher powered motors, at least that's what Watt Wagons indicated. See this post by puskar on EBR...

    Bafang ultra max 2.2kw EXCESS controller

    I am told there will be an innotrace controller for the M600 next year, so you could upgrade later if the Bafang tuning doesn't meet your needs. I would go with the Dengfu E10 and M600 if you want something closer to a suitable eMTB at suitable cost. I think the Ultra may be too heavy for that...

    Where did you guys obtain the BESST tool? Lunacycle told me they would provide temporary login to flash the latest firmware from Bafang if I could obtain the BESST tool but they don't sell it. FLX won't sell it unless you buy a bike from them. I conctacted CNEbikes. They replied back that...

    Favorite programming setting was my credit card number to order the aftermarket controller.

    Bafang ultra max 2.2kw EXCESS controller

    I get a little vibration stopped at a light with leg resting on pedal and slight force from partial body weight. Not any big deal though. I'd think this is normal as I've experienced similar with other torque sensing motors.

    My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

    I am not trolling. You can put rack and fenders on the AM 1000. See link to Frey's FB page. Or just search this thread. Many have done it. You can even add them on the EX. Or see the FS offerings by QuietKat or Backou with Ultra motor. They have racks and fenders and ~$2000 of padding but...
