 A note on this manual:

While this is the manufacturers manual for this display, it’s based on the standard stock firmware and protocol. SONDORS display has a custom configurations. There are some aspect of this display will not match with what’s stated in this document.

Thanks Reddy and Andi,  extremely useful. Now all I need is the admin password for the XS. I get my correct upgrade kit (color LCD and 25A controller) for my X this week. This manual will be applicable to that as well since they are identical LCDs. I hope the admin password that Charlie passed on (1665) will give me access to the X upgrade LCD.

Interestingly, the PAS settings for the XS LCD seem different than for the upgrade kit. That PAS settings for the XS are very close to what I would set them (from the power meter, I am estimate 1-15%, 2-30%, 3-50%, 4-70%, 5-95%). The X upgrade color LCD (during the short time I had the wrong single speed one) seemed to have started at around 1-40%. I'll update this forum when I get my upgrade kit and XS password.

My MXS is getting delivered in a couple days and I was looking to familiarize myself with the LCD. I found this post on the KD718 and I'm wondering if this is the model that will be on the MXS?

I'm thinking not because the ebike review vid I watched (from May 2020) shows a 5 bar battery indicator while the KD718 displays the numeric value remaining. Any help pointing me to the correct manual would be appreciated.

You're in the right thread. It's the one linked at the top of this thread. It's far from complete as far as explanations are concerned; you can tell something was lost in the translation from Chinese to English or just not explained well.

The LCD display for my Sondors XS is actually a KD718.  I had to replace the 750 watt rear hub motor with a Bafang not supplied by Sondors, since they've been out of stock for a long. time. My problem is that I've searched the interwebs &  this forum high & low but have not been able to find an explanation or best advanced settings for the display. I can access advanced mode (code 1515) but Im stuck on what best settings for speed sensor & slow start I should use...

Did you buy your new 750w bafang  from one of out preferred Sondors Support online suppliers, here in the US?  Electro Bike World, Bolton or Luna? If so they should be able to help you with configuration. There are posts scattered thur-out this forum about individual members advanced settings preferences but unfortunately they are in many different threads, but they are here.

Thanks Reddy. 

I widdled & I fiddled on my XS today & rode it with my cell phone GPS on.  The most accurate speed I was able to get on the display was Wheel Size: 28 (although my  XS is a 26) & Speed Sensor: 01 (even though the Bafang 750W has 6 magnets).   I do have a scheduled phone call with Gregg Galas at Sondors tech support tomorrow, so hopefully they can school me on the best advanced settings for the XS & what they mean.  Gregg was very helpful so far in helping me troubleshoot my original problem. (no speed, trip & ODO because of a frayed cable at the hub)

BTW, I bought the replacement Bafang 750W from Electro Bike World, even though their inventory was low & they're hard to find lately.  The price was reasonable, the fit was almost perfect (cable was shorter than the original)  & delivery was quick & free.

I buy another 750 Watt Bafang every Nov 11, (Singles Holiday in China) from Aliexpress every year. Everything is on sale that day. They ain’t getting cheaper. Bought my first for $160 something, no tax & free DSL shipping, 

Rim size is 26, Wheel size is 28 depending on tire. 

I’ll be interested to what Sondors Tech has to say about advanced settings. 

I believe the 750 Watt motors only have one puck magnet embedded inside the outer case for PAS. 

Was your motor cable frayed where the cable exits the slot in the motor axel? The edges of that slot are super sharp (wish Bafang would round those from the factory). Cables are damaged from a fall on the bikes right side, before they came with guards or from owners installing the rear wheel, after repairing a flat with the slot in the axel facing the rear. 

Yea, I’ve got a 750 with a short cable that won’t fit in the capture devices on the chainstay, Zipties.
