  1. On my 2021 Escape ‘R’, the most I’ve ever gotten is 3 hours actual motor running time. 20 miles or so. the battery is certainly bigger than the epure, but rest of bike is the same (although heavier). Nowhere near what EM claims.
  2. I sent a message, I have software. The cable information is on this site, I’ve made a few.
  3. I commonly got the chassis relay fault on my Explorer- never seemed to affect anything. Make sure you do not touch the throttle when starting- take the slack out of starter and a good strong kick. With a 12V battery hooked up with a momentary switch- holding down the switch while kicking started first kick every time warm, 1 or 2 cold. I also ran one step hotter sparking plug, since the factory one was too cold.
  4. The FRB is a ‘Normally Open’ switch/button. I suppose it could somehow fail close- but I don’t think very likely. More likely would be wires getting chaffed due to improper routing/covers and shorting across- activating the FRB. I use a very high quality switch (not the EM one) and it has been flawless. Another great feature is if you have to stop on a really steep hill (either someone stopped ahead, tree down or just mess up) pressing the FRB with also work in reverse. So it acts like a rear brake- pretty effectively at a stop. I have it located such that is it highly unlikely I would ever hit the button unless I want to. (I never have yet)- it will immediately ‘turn off’ the power and start the regen. If you hit it by accident with throttle on- then take finger off button, it will immediately give what ever power the throttle is set to. THAT could be an eye opener. But I’ve only done that when fooling around to see how the button reacts and how the bike responds. I don’t do competitions any more, but I would still use the FRB on a steep downhill, since I can then put my feet where I want, hold the button down for excellent ‘braking’ and just feed in more front brake if needed, or slip the clutch if I want a bit less.
  5. I really like the button under bar I’ve been using. If I want less regen, I can just slip the clutch a bit while holding in the button. With the location- that is pretty easy to use.

    I need K-scan !!!

    I’ve made a few of them, but I don't have a bike to test cable with anymore, so I don't really want to make more

    i sent a link for the software. You will need a cable also
  8. Tyre pressure certainly makes a difference. If I have it pumped up to ‘road’ pressure (12psi) the stand works ok. But at trail/trial pressure (3-4psi) it is awful.
  9. I agree- it should be offered as an option for the older bikes. Assuming it is just programming of course, which it certainly seems to be. I think it could be nice in a trial competition, but just wasting energy for trails. I like using the FRB a lot and it is quite ‘jerky’ if you use the FRB with any throttle opening at all. (Pressing the FRB with throttle open will immediatly shut off engine and go to regen, regardless of throttle position. And letting it off with throttle open causes it to immediately go to that opening, not smooth at all.) I have no idea how they implement the ‘traction control’ so it could need more components? And perhaps the hardware is different on the newer bikes that have it? I am just speculating since I have not even seen a 2022.
  10. This is the one I use http://www.pmrcomponents.com/pmrweb_010.htm Mounts under bar, I can just slightly move my thumb to activate. I keep forefinger on the clutch all the time and can even slip it a bit when the FRB is activated if I want less.
  11. Mine is too long also. Bike fell over in the garage and I also have to look for a low spot for stand.` I was considering just taking a bit off the foot- I think it is pretty thick?
  12. The FRB works really well. I think it is more than engine braking on my old Beta 300 4T- I almost never use the rear brake anymore. I found a very nice waterproof button and mounts under the bar. So I can just move my thumb a bit and press it, no need to unwrap thumb. http://www.pmrcomponents.com/pmrweb_010.htm
  13. Please I´m desperatly looking for K-skan 1.2 for my Ossa Explorer 280i. Could you help me?

     

    Thanks.

    K-Scan for Ossa

    I run it on win7, so I suspect it will work on 10. You do have to have driver for whatever interface you are using of cousre.
