Cant wait to test it! But it would be more interesting to me, if the derating behaviour with low battery is improved. That was my main complaint about the bike. Let‘s see. Once the tool arrived, I‘ll give it a try and keep You posted! Enjoy weekend!its worth every single penny imo. Now M500 is up to 720W and M600 up to 1kW. Still difference, but not twice as it was.
Now M500 may be competetive to other 250W rated engines on the market.
Firmware update should be possible directly through the Bafang GO app for bluetooth display such as CP241 but the Bafang GO app is a piece of garbage and this functionality is just bugged - you cannot pick a file or push update - and its finally not working.
14S works fine, I haven't yet run the battery down fully but at 520WH used ( the battery was still showing 52 volts ) from a 780WH battery, its still pushing out max power. To date I have been discharging the battery ever so slightly to just below 58 volts before fitting as I'm lead to beleive over 58 volts it will go into an error code ( on my battery I only loose 5W/hs so no loss to worry about ). The only downside to the 52volts is that when the battery is fully charged, the motor becomes a little too fiesty on initial ramp up. Also on full charge the minimum Watts on 1 of 9 levels is about 350W's ( sorry I can't be more precise but the darn screen size of the additional info is almost so small as to be useless on the CP241 screen ).probably if your system is 48v you could try with 14s battery or of 36v with 11s.This is my plan for the m600
This is such a pain as without doubt, this has to be easiest way of updating the files, anybody out there conversant with writing Apps ?Firmware update should be possible directly through the Bafang GO app for bluetooth display such as CP241 but the Bafang GO app is a piece of garbage and this functionality is just bugged - you cannot pick a file or push update - and its finally not working.
M500 is throttle capable, and i have the throttle for mine (you need to detach it in eu to keep full legal) but how great it is on climbing, you can push the throttle to max and engine is pushing power in meantime of your steps on pedals.
As far i know most of EU rated mid-engines with torque sensing have no even option for throttle.
Thanks for the update! Sounds like a big improvement, compared to my 10A Firmware! Enjoy!I completed my first full test with CRX10NC4813i. Just over 60km, with 1500m of climb. I used level 5 of 5 for the whole ride. When the battery gets to 30% power is cut to around 500w, at 20% power is cut to 250w and at 10% power is cut to 200w. I just got down to 10% at the end of the ride.
It is definitely comparable to the power of my Yamaha PWX bike, but seems more cadence driven. The Yamaha responds more to torque on the pedals, with the Bafang I have to keep the cadence up to get maximum power.
Now i just need to find a really steep hill so I can do a true comparison ;-)
Thanks again for Your help! My BT arrived a minute ago! Could You please quickly tell me how to connect the BT to the bike? Do I unplug both the display connectors and plug in the wire from the handle bar unit into BT, and the wire coming from the frame also into the BT? Thanks for Your adivce!working as intended, and now run the besst (do not close the cmd with script).
a. upload and pick file
b. after beeps - unplug the besst cable from bike. NOT usb from besst or laptop, but BESST connector to engine (single plug)
c. wait few seconds then connect and update will proceed automatically
d. click 'reset' after beep

Completed! Everything worked fine, thanks guys! But now I‘m f***ed becaus my display to motor cable seems to have a defect. I get Error 30, when I slightly bend the cable closed to the display plug, it‘s working. It‘s looks like its not the connection to the display but the cabel itself. Any idea where to get an replacement?
Thank You very much mate! I installed the zipp tie option already before You postetd it hope that works! I‘ll try to get replacement asap. Thanks for the contacts!!!Have no contact to sales but you may try here:
You may also look for a company who have Bafang engines in their bikes in Germany or EU.
And these two are from Czech:
Tradiční český výrobce kol Leader Fox. Kvalitní kola a elektrokola pro všechny věkové skupiny montujeme přímo v Českých Budějovicích. Expedice po celé České republice i Evropě.www.leaderfox.cz
I know its workaround but you may bend cable to position when it is working and keep it in this position by this, or silver-tape till you get new cable.

Beside of above - any electronic service should be able to fix the cable you have at now even if you will not be able to buy new.
I just returned from a longer test ride. The zip tie bugfix worked with no problems. 42 km and 1.300 hm accomplished!Mates, i just updated firmware of my m500 with the help of @Kyokushin ☺. I just had the time to do a round in the garage and can only say that it feels GREAT ?????☺☺☺. Bike already now has much more torque and is sooo punchy now. Great firmware for this first small test and special thanks to all of you .
Thanks mate! If I dont get the original cable, I will buy this cable, cut it, do a soldering job and repair my cable. Highly appreciated. @Kyokushin forwardet a link to Tosa bikes, they allready replied and there is a chance I get the original replacement there. Thanks!
Awesome! I checked their Website before, but did not find the cable! Thanks for the hint mate! Just ordered it!Thaeber, this looks like it could be the right cable.
