RadRover / Who else is ready to unload their RR

It?s sitting in my garage waiting on controller because of an error. 30 message.
Just out of warranty and all I can get from the RR services. You have to buy a wiring harness and a controller to get back on the bike.

Service & Repair / Re: Error 30 Rad Rover 6 Plus

I had the same problem with the tail light.

Plug and unplug the light.  Maybe do it 10 times - checking each time to see if you solved the problem.  I know it is a pain - but maybe some oxidation in the connectors.

Those connectors are a pain, you need good hand strength.  Be gentle.  Or else you break the connector. Don't pull on the cord. Only pull the thicker connector part. 

Naturally, do it correctly. Don't mis-align.  Or else you have a broken connector.

If I'm seeing the display panel pic right, you've got moisture trapped behind the front plastic?  That might not bode well for internal corrosion.  That, plus possible damage to the controller, would lead me to just replace both with either the EBR or Area13 35A controller upgrade kit to get new parts, a lot more pulling power and more features.  I assume a version is available for the Wagon, but not certain of that.  Unless something has changed, they're identical except for logos, so buy the cheapest available at the moment.  There are good vids and Chinglish documentation available for the parameter settings, here's a little info I posted recently:  https://www.radowners.com/index.php/topic,9086.msg21144.html#msg21144

Thanks for the info. I was planning on disassembling the controller and LCD to see if I could dry it out and remove any corrosion that might be in there. If that does not work then I will upgrade the unit.

I would do some research about graffiti removal. There are cleaners/solvents out there which are made for this kind of paint removal. I think the bikes are powder coated originally and the thugs probably used rattle cans to paint the bike.
The other more expensive option would be to strip the frame down completely, have it media blasted and powder coated in you personal color.
As for testing the motor I would look for a replacement battery and holder and see if you can get this back together. The cheapest option might be to find another donor ebike.
Good luck.

Thanks, I am going to try some Lacquer Thinner in small amounts to see if it will pull the black off. I don't need this bike to be pristine, so if I do strip it and sand it I will paint it myself. I have done that sort of work before and have a few friends who do bodywork touchup paint for cars and could even engage one of them for a nice paint job without the expense of sandblasting and powder coating, though I will at least price that out as well since it might not e as expensive as I think it is.

Might be easier/ less headache to sell it and apply those funds to a new bike
