I have the foldX. My free wheel speed is 24.5 MPH on both bikes. Power is one bar.

Thanks!   Maybe the motor needs resistance to display power?  My street is a snow emergency street and is clear, but pretty wet.  Maybe I can do a test run tomorrow.

I have the stated remedies to adjust my PAS settings and they work but it shuts off all throttle function and the speed is displayed incorrectly. Anyone have any insight on this? I have resorted to setting back to default settings.

Received my wife Fold X single speed last week,  After a test ride I did not like the PAS bandwidth.  Sondors tech support shared this link and the 1-10, 2-20, 3-50, 4-70, 5-96 setup is what i was looking for.

Thank you JCJ and other forum members!

Hey folks.....I was beginning to think I was really dense while trying to change the PAS settings on FoldX.  Instructions are very unclear......but this is how I got it changed, first don't pay attention to videos on line.  The LCD I have is the KD51C which is different than all of the LCD I saw on line.  

Power up LCD

press and hold + and - buttons at same time

then press and hold + and - buttons again

your in the right spot. VOLt will be showing

Press + one time to the next parameter SCr

press i (power button briefly) to access levels

S-1_## (mine 15)

S-2_ ## (mine 25)

S-3_ ## (mine 35)

S-4_##(mine 45)

S-5_##(mine 55)

when finished, press and hold i (power) to save and back out

the default setting were way too fast for my wife to keep up with!  She likes these new settings.....

Hi Forum members, I have a Sondors X 7 speed Fat Tire bike, 48V, 500W. I bought it in early January so it has the new square looking LCD display. I too would like to change my PAS settings as it drives me nuts when I ride with non-eBike friends (I want to pedal but it just takes off even on 1 and I have to stop pedaling to regulate my speed). When I go into the settings as outlined above I get a different response. Do I have the same model LCD as Jim Siebel posted above (KD51C-KDS)? How do I check? I am unable to get past the "clear trip counter level". If anyone has step by step instructions or can point me to a youtube clip, that would be much appreciated. Thanks

SamCR,

Great!   I have mine set at:

s-1  15
s-2  30
s-3  50

s-4  75
s-5   99

I had it at 9 settings, but found that it required too much clicking if you needed top power (s9) from bottom power (s1)

Sounds like we think the same. I set to:

S1 - 10

S2 - 20

S3 - 50

S4 - 75

S5 - 99

I have test ridden it yet. I am looking to have just enough assistance to overcome weight and tire friction. Do your settings do that? How is it in Setting 1?

Lee Love has the answer. That's where I have mine set.

The factory settings must be for a 36V Fold. 

I usually use settings 1 or 2 on relatively flat streets at 6-8 MPH walking the dog.  Occasionally  I use #3 on hills, but almost never use 4 or 5.

I also set the max speed on my  wife's bike to 20 KPH.  It was too fast for her at 40 and scared her a bit.  I'm sure that when  she gets more used to it, I'll be able to set it back up.

Just to add:  I found that 28" wheel was the correct setting form my Thin7 using a GPS app to confirm.    I am now getting 22mph which is plenty fast for me and keeps me legal on the bike paths and trails here in Minneapolis.

Is your top speed on the Fold 45kph?     I wanted the lower settings for the first too assists because sometimes you just want to amble and take in the view.

Next topic, voltage levels. My voltage indicator has never been off full charge, even after a 30 mi ride with lots of step hills. I have a feeling it is set for a 36V system. Any suggestions for setting a 48V system?

Ours doesn't seem to have a Time function.

Mine stopped presenting the MPH and distance.   Most people think it is the sensor magnets in the Hub motor. 
A real bummer.  Everything else works.  I just need to get a separate speedometer.  Or figure out how to fix it.

Hallo zusammen. Kann mir einer die richtigen Parameter für die Einstellung der Batterieanzeige sagen. Es ist ein Fat X 48V mit 17,5AH. Ab wann  schaltet die Batterie ab? weil das wäre dann der Wert nach dem letzten Balken...

Hello everybody. Can someone tell me the right parameters for the Power Bar Settings? It's a Fat X 48V with 17,5AH. When does the battery switch off? because that would be the value after the last bar...

 

 

Danke und /and Thanks

Please access the personalized parameter settings. 

To access Personalized Parameter Settings items option page, hold both the “+” and the “-” button for 2 s, then hold both the “+” and the “-” button for 2 s again. To access the corresponding settings page we need, press the “+” or the “-” button to increase or decrease until the desired item (Battery Power Bar Settings Interface - see image) is displayed, and then press the “i” button to confirm.

To set battery power bar, press the “+” or the “-” button to increase or decrease the number. To store a changed setting and access the second bar, press the “i” button. By analogy, after 5 bars voltage values is entered, the values are for 48V batteries: 

VOL1: 41.2

VOL2: 43.7 

VOL3: 46.8 

VOL4: 49.9 

VOL5: 53

hold the “i” button to confirm and then return to the previous menu.

How do I set the PAS to 0 on the display? When I turn it on it defaults to 2 pas. 

Before powering down the LCD, turn the PAS setting to 0. That should make PAS 0 the default start up condition.

      Hey folks that are patiently, or impatiently, awaiting a shipping notice or bike, please read this. Based on our experience with this since 2015, here is what you can expect:  PLUS, the Pandemic has a huge affect on deliveries with overcapacity UPS capabilities.  
      As containers arrive in LA, UPS take possession and gets them processed through customs. There are hundreds of bikes per container, and probably a dozen containers.  As each container is opened, UPS will mark them as received and you may get a notice with an expected delivery date (either from UPS or Sondors). This does not necessarily mean that it is on a truck yet or has left the facility The bikes are shipped by truck, not air. Once it leaves LA you may not get any update for days as the truck works it's way to your regional or local hub where it will be offloaded and scanned again. Not getting an update for a few days is normal. You will sometimes get a planned delivery notice once it gets to your local UPS. However, sometimes it just shows on your doorstep. Sometimes it shows up on your doorstep when the tracking shows that it's still in LA. It's quite inconsistent, and nobody should panic. If you get a notice, be patient. It can take more than 2 weeks to get to you depending on how fast they empty the containers and when they find space in a truck, how long the drive is, etc. Signing up for UPS My Choice might give you more info, but sometimes not. Whatever you do, don't start bombarding Sondors with emails about "where is my bike" yet. They have probably opened 1 of a dozen containers so far and are working through things over the next couple of weeks We all know there's a huge shipment of bikes coming. Thousands of bikes. I can feel the excitement, or maybe it's just me lol. But anyway I can feel the pressure building. We don't mind you posting your delivery notice, but please don't post your tracking number. Just black that part out, and you're good to go. You don't want anyone the be able to reroute your delivery to my house do you? Moderators will delete all posts we see with tracking numbers.

      Battery on 2019 Sondors Step will not charge. I plug the charger into it and charger light remains green (never turns red to indicate charging). I reset LCD to default just to make sure it want settings issue. Any ideas? I tried two different chargers as we ha e two of these bikes. When I remove battery and plug in to charger, 3 green dot lights turn on only when plugged in.

      Does anyone know how to correct this?
      My LCD displays 49.6 mph whenever I am coasting. The mph displays correct MPH whenever I am pedaling or using the throttle. 
      350 watt motor, 15 amp controller , 12.8 bottle battery,
