Riding a tuned or deristricted EMTB is not a trivial offence and can have serious legal consequences. Also, many manufacturers can detect the use of a tuning device or deristricting method and may decline a repair under warranty if it was modified from the intended original specification. Deristricting EMTB's can also add increased loads for motors and batteries. Riding above the local law limit may reclassify the bike as a low-powered bike, requiring insurance, registration and a number plate.
Be aware of your local country laws. Many laws prohibit use of modified EMTB's. It is your responsibility to check local laws. Ignoring it, has potential implications to trail access, and risk of prosecution in the event of an accident.

There is a downside, if you can call it that....It’s great isn’t it!
Remember you will use more battery though so if planning longer rides take that into account.
My Wheelsize 29x2.25 --->Circumference 2313change region to 20mph
and change wheelsize to:
(your genuine wheel circumference) X 0.621
Next switch the display settings to show in Km
the speed digits shown will now be your correct speed in MPH
(As will distance and Avg speed etc.)
Your motor will now assist to an actual speed of 32.1mph
I have that feeling with resistance from motor without pedaling same as you on EP8. Bike is not derestricted. It's just that feeleng like the bike is slowing down instantly when you are close to speed limit 25km/h so I hope deresrricrion can help. So there is a drag from motor for sure.Hey All - Firstly - Great thread, and thank you to everyone for the information.
So i have set the region and the wheel circumference on the E8000 (Thanks Gary)....and yeah it is working a treat. Great news is you still have to work for the assist at the higher speed. So love it. Money well spend.
However, maybe just me, but when I stop pedaling the bike really really slows down, like there is some resistance there. Like the motor has not completely disengaged. Very noticeable.
Anyone else notice this? is it normal.....i mean, it not like a massive brake....but its noticeable
