Magic Sequences for Vectrix Service

This page can be used to list the magic sequences that make a Vectrix VX-1 do certain things.
.

Here are the ones I remember off the top of my head - could anyone who has recently used them write exactly how it works, please?

I'll edit this first post so the best descriptions are added to the first post to make it more user-friendly.

Turning on both head-light filaments at once:

Turning off the head-light (different with different software versions):
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Motor encoder calibration:
With rear wheel lifted off the ground and side stand in the "up" position:
Before you turn on the key, apply full throttle and the right brake lever. Turn on key and hold throttle and brake until wrench icon appears. The encoder routine will start automatically. First the wheel will lock to a position then it will slowly turn until it is calibrated.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Motor phase test:
With rear wheel lifted off the ground and side stand in the "up" position:
Before you turn on the key, apply full throttle and the left brake lever. Turn on key and hold throttle and brake until wrench icon appears. The motor (wheel) should spin forward slowly and smoothly. This tests the phases of the MC w/o any encoder feedback.

Checking battery temperature (different with different software versions):

Bike ignition On
Kill Switch Off
Pull left brake lever
Speedo should read 43kph
If not, adjust as per linked instructions.

I doubt we know them all yet, so please reply if you know any other magic sequences.

Yes, those have been mentioned somewhere on the VisforVoltage Vectrix pages before, but it needs some searching to find them. Then, they could be collected here in this thread in one easy to find place.

I've added the procedures for encoder and phase test to the first post.
