Hi,
I was going up a hill and all power went. Battery was reading full but have charged it just to confirm. Still no power. Is there a main fuse? I have checked all connectors seem connected. If not what do you suspect is the culprit?Thanks Richard

Just took delivery. LOVE IT. Not sure if you overexcited but the throttle thumb lever got pushed all the way around back and now doesn’t throttle properly. Sorta works but not to full speed. Pedal assist fine. Any ideas? Can I take apart and fix?

My Greaser Ebike has the 36 volt 13 amp rear hub motor.
Recently, it has started to make a loud vibrating noise. It happens under acceleration and quiet when coasting. It has about 300 miles on it.
Any suggestions. Is it possible to buy a replacement motor with a rim?

hi! i have a greaser 500w ,at night i use the headlight but some times the light goes low it's is normal?

Conrad L.Michael Blast

Hi Red, there could be a loose connection in the light assembly itself, i would suggest removing the globe and checking the connection at the bulb.

Horst Klever

Horst Kleverasked

Hello, I am Horst from Germany . Whats the meaning of ERROR 5 ? from my Greaser ???

2 answers
Michael Blast
Conrad L.Michael Blast

Hi Error 5 can be related to a bad electrical connection within the wiring harness, i suggest cleaning all electrical plugs with an electrical cleaner and applying some Dielectric grease on the plugs prior to reconnecting the plugs.

Ideally you should take it back to the place where you purchased it, if it is still under warranty the dealer should take care of it.

This product review site is for Australia only, any warranty related issues need to be handled by the country and dealer where your bike was purchased.

The Michael Blast dealer in Germany is independent to Michael Blast Australia therefore we do not handle any warranty issues that originate outside of Australia.

Hi Darren, the spare wire is for brake motor cutoffs, they are not required under AS/NZ law but the provision is there should the laws change.

Conrad L.Michael Blast

Hi this error can be related to a poor connection within the wiring harness due to ingress of Dirt or water.

Please clean all connectors with electrical cleaner prior to applying some dielectric grease on the connectors before you plug them all back together.

Jonathon L.

Jonathon L.asked

Hi, what are the trade offs when changing the level 5 speed to 32-36 kph?
Will the battery/ motor struggle more in one bar battery and a grade 5 hill in Sydney?
Currently the bike will do 8kph in such a terrain and low battery.
Great bike, one year down and loving every minute with it. Thanks and looking forward to your reply

Cheers John

Conrad L.Michael Blast

Hi Jonathon, Increasing the assistance level and top speed will deplete the battery at a faster rate as it requires more energy to maintain that higher speed.

Hi Oscar, It sounds to me like there is a dirty electrical connection that is causing this error. But the dealer whom you purchased the bike from can give you a greater insight into the issue

NZ Maverickasked

Hi,
I have a 48V, 0.5kW Greaser and absolutely love it.
From new it always made a vibration sound when under load that seemed to be amplified by the tank panels. It was quite cool as it gave warning to other road users that I was approaching. I have now done just over 1000 kms and the vibration has recently increased significantly to a level where the noise is no longer cool. The the seat frame vibrates and if I clamp my legs against the tank panels it doesn't reduce at all. The vibration is generating from the rear wheel, it I lift it off the ground and spin the wheel by hand I can hear the vibration transmitting throughout the frame.
I don't think this normal for a Bafang hub drive bike, my wife has a different brand of bike with 48V, 0.5kW Bafang hub drive and it doesn't do it.
Would appreciate any thoughts.

Hi, you will need to contact the place where you purchased your bike, if your bike has never been serviced by the place of purchase we suggest that the spokes and hardware are checked for tightness, loose spokes can cause vibration issues.

Christophe D.

Christophe D.asked

Hi,
I am in Montpellier in France. I would like to connect a rear light that is controlled at the same time as the front light. how do I proceed ?

cordially

Conrad L.Michael Blast

Hi Christophe,

Right now mate we have not developed a rear light yet. However I can make a suggestion that would work.

You would need to source an LED light that can handle 36-42+ Volts, the wires would run to the headlight and you could splice the positive and negative wires into the positive and negative wires that go to the headlight. So when you turn the headlight on the rear light turns on at the same time.

I hope this helps answer your question.

Ronny S

Ronny Sasked

Hi.
Ronny from Norway here. Just purchased my Greaser, and already in deep love with it.

1. Is it possible to put in a 48V battery in my Greaser? Is it space enough for it?
I'm thinking of a stronger motor, as the standard 250 w one I have now don't pull me up the hills to my house.
I'm a BIG old man.

2. Can I use the same controller with 48V battery and stronger motor?

3. We have cold winters where I live. Should I take the battery inside the house for the winter?

4. Is there a number on each bike? If so, where can I find it? I need it for the insurance. (If there is a number)

Regards
Ronny Stavsholt

1 answer
Michael Blast
Conrad L.Michael Blast

Hi Ronny,

- You will need to update the Controller, Battery and motor if you want more power, you cannot just upgrade the battery
- I would advise you to keep your bike out of the weather where possible
- The Serial number is located on the Head tube and is stamped into the frame.

Cheers

All bikes 250W Road Legal Bikes supplied in Australia come without a thumb throttle as standard, and are Pedal assist only

One wire not connected at the lcd.Found the bike at the pawn shop in Colorado. Lcd seems to function. Any ideas?

That one wire would be for Brake cut Offs or for a thumb throttle. Unfortunately, we only deal with customers in Australia only i would advise you to make contact with a dealer in the USA

Hi there,

Assuming it was delivered just like mine, it was pretty much ready to ride. A few parts needed to be assembled (ie handle bars) but it was a 15 minute job with no professional help required.

Ta,

Unfortunately, we only serve customers in Australia, we cannot advise how the bike is delivered from other distributors it would be best to contact them directly
