Hello. Finally junked my Kaishan (although saved the battery as it is new, to maybe sell later). I replaced it with an year old Davinci Euro, whih is a much better e-Bike, but it seems it has a hi-lo power switch same as the other bike. Only one setting works though.. the "0".. The "I":, which is the flip-up setting, cuts all power to the bike. Clearly the shop has no idea as they spent a whole day trying to fix the bike before discovering the switch.. so I ask here.. Which is the "high power" setting.. the "0" or the "I" I don't know it it increases torque or just cuts power to the motor, since it only works in the downward "0" setting. Anyone know?
Secondly, anyonbe know where to get some manuals for this bike? I have heard on one website that Davinci is a Japanese make, not Chinese (Phew!)
Lastly, I need way more range and power than the lead acid batteries can provide, I have heard good things about Lithium replacements, but don't know much about them. Anyone have any experience with them? Apparently they are expensive. Worth it?
Anyone have any other experience with the Davinci Euro? So far, to me, it feels like a good solid, and somewhat spry bike. Irt's acceleration isn't great if the juice is down even a bit, but it seems to not be electronically limited in top speed either..which is a pleasant surprise.
Also, anyone want an almost new Kaishan/Gio 48V lead acid battery? Cost me $400, and the motor died soon after, so it didn't get much wear...
