      Setup your bike:


      Where are the wheel spacers and where are the keys.
      Please don't loose your keys as we don't have a set of keys for the thousands of different lock barrel there is, if you loose them you will have to take the bike to a locksmith so he can re-key the lock.

      NOTE: In the videos below, I used a Luna X2 bike, but your Z1 is similar.... except a few things like the cranks arms.. they don't have pinch bolts so you do need to tighten the crank arm bolts really tight like 30-40nm and will also need blue loctite if you take them out again.

      Tip on how to install the pedals

      How to put the front wheel

      The spacers are the same on each side. Don't remove the caliper black spacer until you are ready to put the front wheel in. The block is wider than the rotor so the wheel will fit in. If it does not fit that is because you depressed the lever before putting the wheel in. In this case you will have to spread the pads (Go to the mechanical troubleshooting for this procedure)

      Charging procedure:

      Check up

      After you put the front wheel on and adjusted the stem and put on the handle bars you still need to go over a few things before hitting the trails

        Link to 860c manual is not the same as on my Z-1. I have no 'Basic Setting' or 'Advanced Settings' in the menu options. Would like to change to the 9 Step power option.

      Maintenance section


      Weatherproofing, if you ride near the beach (high humidity, salt water) or if you ride in the wet /snow salt , you can prevent corrosion on the exposed battery terminals and can also waterproof your connections. Click this link to know how to weatherproofing


        Electrical troubleshooting

        Motor/display does not power up?

        Step #1 Battery bypass:

        You can bypass the battery with the charger, so make sure that the battery is inside the frame, then power the battery by pressing the side chrome switch, plug the charger into the wall outlet then on the frame charge port. Once you have the charger plugged in (either charging or not depending on the state of charge) try to power the display. If it does not power up by pressing the OFF/OFF button on the control pad for 3-4 seconds, press and hold the "-" button for 3-4 seconds, if it still does not work then you likely have a wiring or controller issue. Please continue with the next steps.

        Step #2 Measuring the voltage from the battery.

        The Z1 (same as X2) is different than a X1 or a normal generic battery as the battery is turned off once you get it out of the frame, there are not gauge or switch to turn it on. Please watch this video

        If you don't get a normal voltage from the XT60 with the chrome switch pushed ON, either 0V, 20V, 30V or just a much lower voltage compared to what you measured when you plugged in the charger, then scroll down below to the advanced toubleshooting page where we would test the power switch.

        IF you do have the correct voltage then go to sep #3

        Step #3

        Remove the motor and check the connections.

        Click here to see the video on how to remove the motor.

        Step #4

        Test the harness, bypass the display and such.

        The Ultra motor is pretty much like a BBSHd motor, it uses the same displays, throttle and communication protocol, the main difference is the motor connections.

        Please click this link and follow the extensive BBSHD troubleshooting guide starting at step 2

          Electrical troubleshooting part 2:

          Specific troubleshooting for the Luna Z1

          If you have a low voltage coming from the battery after measuring it like step#2 (anything under 40V down to 0V) then you need to test the power switch:

          How the switch works:

          If you don't get continuity or a beep, then have someone press and hold the chrome switch in (press hard) while you test the continuity again, that way you would know for sure the chrome switch is acting up.

          If you still haven't found the issue maybe the battery is good and you made a mistake measuring the voltage, in that case start back at step 2 in the previous section

          If you need to replace the frame mounted charge port:
