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.

Interesting how they have now added the ability to mess about with the profiles a bit. And a max limit of 28mph is still more than enough for me. Hmmm
Hi George, no I havent yet, still very inteterested though. Its only the possible issue with a 504 that bothers me, nothing else. I didnt know anything had been changed re the anti tuning detection though.

Hi George,Hi there,
George from Ebiketuner here, did you decide to go ahead with the V4? TLDR they've improved the anti tuning detection and also made the it plug & ride.
Hi @jezzaIs the volspeed v4 detectable on the purion version of the Bosch gen4
My bike is new so has a warranty ...so can it be detected by the shop/manufacturer if things go tits up.
I only want to get to about 20mph as I seem to hit the limits of 15mph very early
I beg to differ. I installed a V4 on my Focus jam² 2020 bosch cx4 unit. After about 300km of riding with a Max speed set to 35kph, it decided to not turn on one day after being charged.
Yep, always let it power down itself. But from memory, that wasn't a requirement or an instruction on the V4.Out of curiosity. After rides, did you let the bike power itself off or did you power off ?
