I had a slight issue on the first ride as the motor seemed to overheat and I thought I could smell it too before the error code came upon the screen,
All help and advice is greatly appreciated.
Cheers!
How hot was it that day? Sounds worrying that the engine overheats. Have you seen it after the first ride as well?

It was about 4 degrees outside,
I used in trail and boost 2 days later in around 2 degrees and an inch or so of snow on the trail and it fine. I will post up any changes.

Be nice if they added the new “shapeshifter” a la new “strive” and made the bike 160 but will shapeshift and jack the rear end and steepening angles w the travel at 145 . It’d be climb and down mode on an emtb. Maybe even more useful on an emtb so you don’t loop out on the steep climbs

Great idea. I had the Cannondale with the fox dyad 2 shock which had 2 separate chambers. With a shape shifter I could switch between 85mm travel and 130mm. That would be insanely good on the ebikes.

As much as i like to travel adjust I think I might like the fact that it jacks the rear a touch and steepens the seat angle and head angle. It could be an effective way to keep the short chainstays, to keep the heavier ebike agile on the downs, and still be able to climb the steep climbs that emtb’s are capable of and keep the front end down. I prefer to have the stability from a decent length reach and slack head angle at the same time be able to whip around turns or make quick lane changes by pivoting off the rear with a shorter cs than a lot of emtb’s seem to have.

So I finally got around to ordering the E7000 switch and took it out for a test this weekend. Loved it, it's got a really nice feel to it, doesn't get in the way, I didn't accidentally change modes which happened with the E8000 and ofcourse the dropper remote is now in a natural position and much better quality

Much cleaner and uncluttered. I wish canyon would bring those to North America. Unfortunately they have no plans todo it
I had to but it from Germany and ship it over to the UK. They are plug and play so they are easy enough to install.

Hi All.
I'm planing to buy a Spectral ON (need to sell previous bike first),
but I'm wonder: anybody of You try to put 29 wheel, with for example 2.2 tire on rear?
My point is to put XC specific tires to reduce drag and increase range. 29 wheel is to make geo little bit more "XC". Is there enough space for big wheel?

2.4-2.5"x29" should fit, since I just put the stock 29" front wheel + 2.5" Minion to the back and when the wheel is off the ground you can center the wheel even though your axle is 3mm too small and hub too narrow = still can see the space. And that 2.5x29" Minion just barely fits.

Has anyone fitted a larger chainring than the standard 34T on the 7.0 model of the Spectral: On?

Is it stock coil on dhx2? What is outside diameter of the coil? Did you have any clearance issues with fitting it.
Yes standard fox coil spring, not sure on diameter.
Nope no clearnce issues at all,and i’ve gone 230x65mm which gives me 160mm travel,on full compression it clears the seat stay fine with a 2.8 eddy current.

The only way is to try one to see if it clears the battery b4 you buy, also i know the ohlins springs are a slightly bigger diameter than fox.
It should clears the battery with no problem. Ohlins has smaller valves body. Can you measure a clearance between Fox coil and top frame tube?

Sure, if I had money to burn.... Thing is I don't, as I have a dirt bike which also requires deep pockets! :p
Another refugee from the KTM Forum - there are a few of us on here as well. Thinking I may get rid of the dirt bike as hardly riding it now...

Mine is beautiful, 2014 road reg 250 XC-F, had AER forks put on it. Would find it hard to sell but not ridden since July last year, whereas am on the eMTB every week. Got great local hills I can ride in that are perfect for eMTBs.

The locals are not into noisy Motos, lots of horse riding goes on - if I could the KTM up into get the hills I would...

Ahoy there Paul. Been thinking of selling my 2017 300 Six Days....... I am a little reluctant though, its the last of the carb models (Lectron fitted ;)) and I have the suspension dialled, after throwing some cash at it, so a very tough decision to make!
