    just make sure your pedal assist is all 100 % look at the charts in one other post i have here

    Thanks

    Any chance you could tell me what setting to change to achieve this?

    Thanks

    Yes you can I did my friends M2s bike for him because he knew nothing about computers that much and did not want to take a chance on messing anything up

    Hallo zusammen
    Ich habe eine Grundsätzliche Frage:
    Spd 0 bis Spd100: Was bedeutet dies genau? Spd0 = Geschwindigkeit 0 in % oder Trittfrequenz 0%

    Da würde es ja Sinn machen, zum beispiel beim Bergfahren wo man mit "kleiner Trittfrequenz bzw. kleinem Tempo ca 50% fährt - die Start und Full Kg herunter zu setzen und nicht bei Spd100.

    How would you "power the motor on" if the display is unplugged?

    You need it plugged in to a battery though but that's not the same as turned on...

    Have you tried doing it with the motor powered off? ...I always do it powered off and have actually never tried it with the motor powered on.

    My first step is to power the bike on. Then I disconnect the cable from the display. Next I connect my communication cable to my laptop and to the bike. Using the 'controllerst_torque.exe' program, I enter the com port, (in my case, "COM5") then hit the connect button. The "Bandrate" window constantly scrolls and never connects. I know my bike is still turned on as I can hit the throttle and it will lurch. What am I doing wrong? I can't connect to the controller.

    Hi,

    I purchased the "Bafang BBS02 and BBSHD Programming Cable" from Luna Cycles for the purpose of programming my Bafang Ultra (Purchased through M2S). I read through the online instructions and am having an issue with the bandrate for the software. Who may be able to help me out to see what I'm doing wrong?

    I downloaded the UltraMag Program. I found my com port (COM5) and entered my Bandrate (9600). For some reason, the Bandrate keeps scrolling and won’t fix on 9600. It’s begins scrolling after I hit the connect button, which is prior to me connecting the cable to my ebike. I tried running the program under windows 8, (my computer is windows 10) and that made no difference. I even used an older windows 8 laptop - still no difference. I cannot connect to the Ultra controller. Anyone have a similar experience with this?

    My goal is only to reduce power levels on level 1 and 2. I'm not even trying to increase power!

    Any help you can provide is most appreciated.
    Is the UltraMag Program you're using the same one as the 'controllerst_torque.exe' one from Karl's post on electricbike?

    I never had to enter the bandrate. After plugging the cable into the controller and the computer, then choosing the correct COM port - I click connect and it automatically chooses the bandrate. Does that help?

    Two quick questions:
    - is the power delivery between MinCur and MaxCur liniar, depening on the pressure between StartKg and FullKg? What I mean is, if you have a StartKg of 20kg and a FullKg of 50kg, can the controller only deliver either MinCur or MaxCur power, or somewhere in between as well, if the pedal pressure is say 30kg?
    - if you set ReturnKg to 0, does this mean that the motor keeps running, even if you stop pedalling (potentially dangerous and reliant on the brake sensor working - if you have one), or does it still require for the pedals to turn (ie ghost pedalling without much/any pressure)?

    Thanks for clarifying!
    hmm... I'm not sure if the power is linear between MinCur or MaxCur, but so long as it feels like a smooth power transition regardless, would it matter? I guess we could play around with those to see if it feels any different but we'd somehow have to measure the kg going into the pedals at the same time, right?

    I have ReturnKg all set to 0 . I believe it allows the motor to keep running so long as the cranks are turning - even when there is no pressure on the pedals (ghost pedaling). The motor doesn't activate if the cranks are not turning,. If you lift the wheel or put it on a bike stand and the cranks spin themselves it will continue to run until you grab the pedal or tap the brake switch - otherwise that could be dangerous for sure, fingers beware.

    I recently converted the bike to Nexus 3 speed and shared a video showing how it feels... might be insightful.

    I'm looking for settings that get me closer to a Bosch or Shimano feel, not a BBSHD cadence-only sensing drive. I'm struggling to understand why Bafang programs different torque mappings for different cadences (motor rpms) on the Torque page. I would have thought that the ideal here would be to have a variable torque multiplier. I put 20 Nm of torque to the pedal and Bafang puts out 30Nm. I put 30 Nm to the pedal and Bafang puts out 45Nm, etc. It shouldn't matter how fast I'm pedaling, it should only/mostly matter how hard I'm pedaling, right?

    And then, instead of different power limits, I'd want to choose different torque multiplier mappings. One for on-road commuting, one for on-road speed, one for off-road singletrack, one for off-road fire roads, etc. Thoughts?

    I noticed some of your torque settings are same as mine, are you still having issues with that?

    Return(kg) - all 0's, and KeepCur(%) - gradually increases. I believe that alone should keep the motor running consistently regardless of how much pressure is being applied to the torque sensor while riding (or ghost pedaling). My motor is running consistently with throttle and/or ghost pedaling regardless of the hill grade. I also have the first three tabs (basic,pedal, throttle) and the top section of torque set to stock settings.
    I went with a whole complete new set of setting for everything and its working almost and I mean almost just like a BBSHD but smooth I was not happy with the stock settings that someone else suggested I do so I started from scratch and changed almost everything
