Hacking an ebike: how to reprogram the Bafang middrive

I go through some of the change i have made to my ebike programing to get the bike to perform the way i want it. Many popular commercial bikes also use Bafang motors and may be fully reprogrammable as well.

  1. Is this going to work with rear hub motor?

  2. Bought a bb02b 750w a few weeks ago and it runs great, but i was curious as to how it was setup from the factory. So i bought the usb adapter and got the software.
    Mine was set to 24amp as default, and max is saying 24, not 25 like most out there. Anyways i changed it to 20 just to stay on the "lower" side of things.
    Thanks for the video šŸ˜‰ Reading tutorials is one thing, seeing how it’s actually done and be able to just "copy paste" is a lot easier šŸ˜‰

  3. Does..the…software…allow…the.END…VOLTAGE..to..be…set…over…36vdc….What…i

  4. How do I find the software I put the cable in but the laptop can’t find the software you are showing. Do you have a link?

  5. Great Video. I did have a 250 watt bafang but upgraded to the 750 watt. When I first tried the bike it was far to fierce in in the lower settings. Your settings are perfect in the 1 – 5 almost exactly mimic how the bike was with the 250 watt motor and 6 – 9 make the most of the extra power.

  6. This is fantastic. Thank you

  7. Awesome information!! Is there a setting for getting the motor to disengage right away when the pedals stop?

  8. by far the most concise and informative i’ve seen so far. great work.

  9. Great job gave me a lot of new info Thank you

  10. I need that usb cable. Where can i find it?

    I was going through the PDF regarding the speed limit. My LCD shows 28mph as the speed. How would I increase this if the Bafang config tool only allows the max of 40km/hr which is only 24mph. side note, i havent attached my controller to the laptop yet.

    Excellent video. Thanks

  14. Great information! Does this work on the 500watt front drive bafang? I just converted a 29 inch cruiser with front drive and it tops out at only 15mph I feel there is some limit put on it.

    I have a problem can read my bike but canā€™t write do you know why?

  19. where do you get the software?

  20. Hi I wonder can you turn off pedelasisten because i have a 1000w bbshd BBS03 58v when fully charged and it is very dangerous from start i would gladly turn it off, please if you know how please do a video, my best regards

  21. Thanks very useful video. I was messing with the controller settings too but i couldnt figure it out. Question: my bafang bbshd has a limit of 500w when it has liw battery. Is there any chance that you know how to fix it?

  22. Very good and clear video! I have 1 thing I haven’t figured out yet, my display says "Intelligent" in the main screen like "Bafang". How do I customise this?

    Can this fix my dc18 LCD and TFT 750c lcd not working with my sondors mxs?

  24. Great Stuff Thanks !

  25. 7:33 Thanks for the great tutorial. You’d mentioned you wanted to override the throttle regardless of which PAS mode or gear bike was in, would there be a risk of damaging the components if you set throttle power to high?

  26. Great info

  27. Thanks for the info, I have 2 bikes with Bafang middrive’s, they’re both 350w 36v units but they perform differently. Your info should I hope enable me to get them both the same. Thanks a lot, Rob

  28. What does it mean on the C965 UBE LCD display in pas?
