I have the Greaser Springer 500 watt model. I’m getting rattles from the front suspension when I travel over minor bumps. I have tighten (compressed) the springs and this has helped but I’m still getting the rattles.

Any suggestions?

I just got my 500w greaser but when I plug it in to charge it, nothing happens. I checked the connections inside the tank area. All good. It's just not charging. Any ideas?

I have the same issue with my Greaser also. Today (Sep18, 2020) I had a Messenger conversation with Michael Blast in WA after the retailer found the battery has had it. I am sending my battery back to WA for replacement. I suggest you send them an email as your bike would still be under warranty.

Check the wire that goes to the motor. That is most likely the issue of error 8

Can a new battery be switched in fairly easily? If going on a long ride I would likely have to change battery at least once

The hardest part is getting the tank cover off , it requires a couple of allen keys. After that its a straight forward click and release set up.

Hi Jardog, as Richard pointed out fairly straight forward once tank cover removed. L/H tank cover is removal via the chrome hex/allen screws. R/H cover has internal screws, so don't force it off as a local E-bike shop did to mine and broke the threaded pedestal. Haven't had to remove my battery yet, however due to the frame around it it may not slide out backward. If so you may need to unscrew the battery base plate from the bike. Once you've got the tank cover off you'll get a better idea of what's required, when putting the cover back on take care not to pinch any of the wiring.

I have a 500w greaser and really like it. I have about 2500 km on the bike, but the headlamp has a slight issue. When I first turn it on, the light is regular brightness, but after about 2 minutes, the light suddenly dims down quite a bit. Any ideas?
thnx in advanced

Mine does the same.
It has since new and I think it may have something to do with the LED globe self regulating its output to control heat... although this is just a guess...

A couple of my powerful LED flashlights do a similar thing if I use them on their brightest setting. They tend to get quite hot very quickly.

i bought a replacement light bulb from ebay ($3.99! not $70), but it does a similar thing, and actually turns right off. I noticed today, that the original one now dims down after a few seconds. This kinda feels like something in the circuit is overloading. I'll be taking it apart this weekend and checking votages/connections, etc.. and will report then.
cheers

Harry
Harry

So when I turn on the headlight for the first time, voltage at the bulb reads "1". Weird. Then, within a couple of seconds, the light dims and the voltage reads ~8.8 volts. Since it's a 12 volt bulb, that makes sense that it's dim at only 8.8 volts.
The wires go to the display box and possibly into the tank. Will be taking the tank apart to see if anything jumps out at me.

Mac Chandler

Mac Chandlerasked

would like to know if I can get the 500 watt motor to do only 20 MPH for riding on our local bike trail.
I won't want a bike that will ONLY do 20 - I must be able to do 30+ or I am not interested, HOWEVER , I also would like to be able to ride with my lady on the trails . Also , what is your price on the 500 watt Greaser e bike with the green frame ?
Also , I would like to know the price of an extra battery ( highest one that will not damage the motor or controller) .
Thanks for any help here
Mac

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?

1 answer

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.

Have you joined our Michael Blast Crew yet? https://www.facebook.com/groups/michaelblastcrew

It is a group we set up for Michael Blast riders to connect with other riders, it is also an awesome place to ask any tech questions about your Greaser.
