How to hack / derestrict your ebike for free

Confirmed also working on Bosch and Yamaha ebikes

Hack your Shimano Steps equipped ebike / emtb for free. Bypass the speed restriction. It will work on Yamaha based bikes and all Shimano based ebikes including E8000, E7000 & E6000. The bike used in this video is a Commencal Meta Power.

The magnet I used:

My equipment list:

GoPro Hero 4 Black

Evo SS Gimbal

Alpinestars A1 Roost guard for mounting camera/gimbal on chest (much more stable than chest strap)

Lexar 32GB 633x microSDHC card (fast, cheap and reliable)

    worry-free from police speed gun

  9. Wow! I wish to have that kind of ebike. If someone give that kind of bike, i will become first to have that kind of bike here in my country.

  10. Brill – simple easy none invasive – great lateral thinking!

  11. How this affect battery life spam ?

  12. Why not just remove the magnet from the wheel and keep the rest like it is?

  13. So is the only downside, an incorrect speedometer?

  14. Does de restricting e bikes make more wear and tear in the motor?

  15. Shimano and Bosche make me laugh because Bafang is half the price and twice the torque and the user sets the cut out speed in the advanced display settings mode. Bafang’s display maker just heard from me about how they can allow the user to set a USA or EU street legal mode or unrestricted mode setting and how to hide that selection behind a user defined extra password. Don’t break the EU pedelec limit in France; the fine for breaking the 25 kph pedelec speed limit in France is Euro 30,000 and bike confiscation and a criminal record. One can break the 120 kph speed limit in France in an electric car and all one gets for that is a slap on the wrist. The French elites who make up EU law as they go along, must really hate e-bike people like you and me.

  16. who tried this on Radpowers?

  17. I can鈥檛 get my sensor off the frame?!?!?

  18. Need to change the title how to convert your ebike to a motor bike this is why these bikes need to be banned

  19. Does this work with the shimano e5000?

  20. You just brought me back to my childhood where I used to monkey with the governor on my mini bike’s lawn mower engine despite being told not to by my parents who were rightly worried I would burn that motor out in my quest for more speed.

    Awesome 馃

  22. What is the max speed after this mod? Is there any damage to the motor?

  23. Hi
    Thanks for the video
    Do you think this will work on a Specialized creo electric road bike

  24. Cool 馃憤

  25. Why can’t you just cut the censor off? Does the bike just refuse to go?

  26. Looking at my wheel to find the magnet. Can’t find it. Is it different in other bikes?

  27. how does this affect the battery life?

  28. Will this affect the battery ?

  29. Brilliant 馃憤馃憤

  30. Dude-great hack! This allows full elimination of the top end cutoff vs other like the hack for my Levo Comp which only allows a max of ~ 23mph.

  31. Bro, try this next time: As you apply the electrical tape, stretch it as you stick it, kind hard to explain, like stick the first little bit like normal, and then stretch it a lot as you keep sticking it, it may change color a little bit, what this does is it turns the tape into a sort of elastic band as well, and it applies constant pressure just like an elastic band, then don’t cut it with a scissor, instead stretch it so much that you actually tear it and in the same motion pass your finger over it so it sticks, that way it will never come undone. An electrician taught me that.

  32. What if your bike dont have a wheel magnet or sensor ? But still limits my speed ?

  33. Hi, do you think without changing the position of the sensor we could cheat the sensor by using 2 magnets on the spokes?

  34. Cool easy hack and easy to place back in its original setting. Great video

  35. Works perfect on my haibike bosch 2014. Thx!!!

    When I gave it a go it worked at slow speeds but a W011 fault came up when I went to 10th and 11th gear and the motor repeatedly turned off and on. Any ideas?

  37. What’s the max. speed? 馃

  38. Just remember your brakes better be really good or you鈥檙e in for a world of hurt !

  39. Works great, like nitro injector to my e-bike

  40. Bloody good hack. 馃憤

  41. Only good if ya peddling all the time or the motor will cut out and e8000 throws wo11 code cant detect wheel speed

  42. I just moved the magnet on the wheel. And seems to work also. Cause i thought if its not gonna give the correct reading then mightaswell have no reading but can still change eco etc. Wouldnt this have the same effect when it comes to speed. Went upto 35 klm/hr motor was still engaged.

  43. How many people has this killed?

  44. just went 25mph wihtout much effort. scary though, especially on a flat road where the speed limit is also 20mph haha

  45. Leorcinn Sneachta February 4, 2021 @ 9:10 pm

    I don’t get it. You went up 2mi an hour?

  46. Omg thank you so much man!!! It works big thanks

  47. Just wondering how strong the magnet should be?

  48. Will doing this drain the battery quicker?

  49. Lol does not work throws a w011 code and when doing down hills it will switch off if not peddled the motor is to smart

  50. This works perfect, thanks
