    Thanks for the link, they are out of stock. For the time being I'd like to acquire a factory steel gear?

      You need to contact Luna. They must have a bunch of gears because they swap them out for the PEEK gears

        HELP! I was riding my X1 last night and my motor just quit. I've only had the bike for a few weeks. My first bike in 30 years - and I'm still figuring it out. I was going up a small hill and was gearing down to make the climb a little easier, I heard the gear change and then - no power. I thought I made sure to not peddle too hard while making the gear change. The battery is over 90%. The display works. I separated the cables and re-attached them but still nothing. Any ideas?

          Make sure the cables on the back of the meter are pushed in all the way. I had that happened to me a few times with the original meter.

            I'll give it a shot. Thanks Man!

              Now for the bad news, today at 1329 total miles, 4 of the teeth on the silent gear stripped off, leaving the bike somewhat stranded, with the bike turned off I could pedal it (what a work out) to get back to the truck. I ride steep hilly train of Sycamore canyon in So Cal. with the bike mainly on step 5 of 9.

              Any others have a similar failure? Also how do I order another 'silent gear'?

              Wow - sorry to see that - I expect Luna would be the best place to go for a replacement gear. On the gear you have - curiosity gets the best of me...

              It looks like a lot of the adjacent gear teeth have heavy wear? and quite a lot of plastic shavings in the grease?

              Certainly doesn't look like the failure was due to lack of lube, though possibly excessive lube? (Not sure if that is a factory lube job or aftermarket, but be careful about cramming in a lot of grease - especially with a plastic gear. The excess grease will just churn around in the gear case leading to excessive friction and higher heat - which is bad for plastic!)

              Also curious if that is the red mobilgrease 28 everyone raves about? That is a clay thickened grease which basically sacrifices everything for high dropping point / high heat use in the aviation industry. Might not be the best for plastic gears as we definitely don't care about high heat use! I'm not 100% convinced it would even be the best for metal gears... seems like a lot of other factors would be more important for our use... low friction, water tolerance, overall stability/long life, wear reduction, etc.

              Either way, hope you're back on the road/trails soon!

                  1st sentence says: “ Love my X-1 Ludi, the bike is a beast.” :)

                Ludi could have something to do with that gear failure
                I have a Non Ludi X1

                  Interesting input on the grease, what type would you reccomend? I have considered a Marine wheel bearing grease but haven't tried it.

                    I doubt the grease is an issue.
                    I have my motor packed with mobile 28 and I have a PEEK gear
                    But I have a non Luidi X1

Not sure how accurate, but In firm setting I feel there are significantly less pedal strikes--I didn't particularly feel any excessive pedal bob with the Monarch R, but apparently it was there (I'm using the same % sag, but the DPX2 is much more firm in both firm and lockout mode).

                      I also added volume spacers to the front and rear shock to make it more progressive which I'm much happier with.
                      What mounting hardware did you use for the DPX2? I put one on mine last night and the thin black spacers were too wide to fit with everything else due to the wider plastic inserts on the DPX2. It's fully functional, I just want to be sure it doesn't have any room to move around laterally. Wondering if there's a Fox mounting hardware kit that's a perfect fit. I'm running pretty high pressure ~>325lbs... Thinking I may need to add a volume spacer to avoid bottoming out.. I still have travel left on it after my initial 20 mile trail ride, but I didn't take any BIG hits.

                      Cheers!

                        No joy. Made sure everything is attached, took the cover off the motor and reattached all of those cables. I hit the throttle while in power level 1, and the motor made a slight sound like it was trying to engage and then quit. When I tried a second time,nothing. Any ideas?

                          It's time to get Luna to warranty the motor.
                          Contact them to see how they want to proceed
                          I have seen them do motor swaps with customers before

                            Have the stock Luna X1 display and the mileage is off by around 30% over actual. Unable to reset wheel size on the display. Was considering the new 860 color display but only if wheel size is adjustable. Anyone know if it truly adjustable on the color display? Description video by Luna shows it being adjustable.

                              That’s what I was afraid of. Thank you for your help!
