I was going to order from that first link you provided. The magnet is 0.27 cents. Shipping is $19.00??!!!

Anybody has spares that they would like to sell me?
well I ended up having no choice but to order from the first link. Shipping was $19 and I had to buy a minimum of 10. It took over 3 weeks to get here. But these magnets are legit! Super strong and a perfect fit!

I now have 2000 miles on my LSS. The narrow planetary gear (V2) is showing signs of wear and is noisy but still works perfectly. I am going to purchase the aluminum gear to replace it. Does anybody need a V1 ring gear, clip for the Sram rotor and V1 planetary gear with a magnet glued into it? All brand new for $30! You need to purchase a Sun gear and dust cover to make it complete.

Now that we have SRAM and Shimano rotor clips, I would think the next logical one would be Hope. I'm currently using the universal clip as I long for something more sanitary and deflect ABS reluctlor questions...Any interest in this?

Just purchased 2 LSS DT Version 2s for my 2020 Turbo Kenevo Experts! I purchased EP659's from BuyMagnets as well, conveniently enough they ship out 30 mins from my house ha!

I'll report back with my results as it seems the Kenevo Expert doesn't get much love around here!

What type of graphite lube does everyone recommend using? I presume you just lube up the little gear that travels around the Sun gear? does anything else need lubing?

Does the 2019 version for Comp with SRAM brake discs also fit on the 2020 version? Or just the new beta?

I destroy metal freehub bodies, so I can't imagine that plastic gears would survive long for me...

Yeah, the thicker rotor will reduce the amount of clearance (but only 0.2mm so it should be ok), but the rotor arms will also be different so the LSS clip likely won't work on a 220mm rotor so you'd need to use the universal rotor mount. But this is all on top of it also being a 2020 Kenevo which I'm not sure if it has other differences / surprises vs a 2020 Levo. So it would be perhaps better to get it working on a stock Kenevo first if possible.
I'm in the same boat with my 2020 kenevo comp. I ride the crap out of mine here in Santa Cruz and the stock SRAM Code R brakes don't cut it. I'm going to switch to Magura MT7's. I'll run the stock SRAM rotor if I have to, but will most likely switch to the Magura 203mm in the rear, (already ordered the 220mm for the front), so if the universal disc setup would work for me that would be awesome.

Hello
Buy Beta - LSS Gear Set for Levo 2017/2018 and confirm that it works properly. I'm delighted. The only thing I can find a little opening on the closing cap I think you should find a solution so that no water and dirt can be found and that the inside of the planetarium is more stagnated.

Thanks for the feedback @Angel Perkins. I'm glad its working for you. I wouldn't worry too much about dirt/water getting in as many people have been riding it for a year without issues. Its stays pretty clean in the spot it is in. But I always try and improve the design, in fact the LSS 2.0 for the 2019/2020 models have a much smaller gap.

would it serve the 2019/2020 cover for mine?
(LSS Gear Set for Levo 2017/2018) being more airtight. could I buy it?

thank you very much and good work

The LSS version for the 2017/2018 is a different size than the 2019/2020 version due to the magnet being in a different location, so unfortunately the covers are not interchangeable.

ok, I've done about 100 km and the perfect operation. There's no sign of wormwear from the planetarium that I lubricate with dry graphics and no dirt inside despite the small opening of the lid.

Are you doing a version for the Levo SL?

Yes, I'd like to but I don't have access to a Levo SL to take measurements. If anyone is willing to take pictures and measurements (preferably with calipers) please PM me.

Hi @Nickdv. Sorry, I missed you earlier message. If you switch the rear brake rotor, the clip won't fit anymore (since it is specific to the original brake rotor design). So you'd need to use the universal rotor mount:

Universal Brake Rotor Mount for LSS - Slim design by JD_3D on Shapeways

Also, make sure to use 6-bolt rotors as Centerlock won't work with the LSS (not enough clearance). Cheers.
Thanks for the answer! got another question I have the turbo connect computer on my bike but now nothing goes right in that is there any solution for it?
The distance is not correct and speed also not it still get displayed but not correct since i updates to the speedlimiter

There's no workaround for that as far as I know, but if you use Blevo it does have a correction factor in there. Otherwise you can mentally just adjust speed and distance by ~1.5x.
