Remove Radrunner Max Speed Limiter
« on: July 21, 2021, 01:02:51 PM »
Anyone tried blocking the radrunner's speed limiter lately?

Saw this video from last year around placing a piece of tape over the connection that regulates speed. Anyone done this? Would it work on radrunners made this year? There was a similar thread from last year about just cutting this wire too.

Would love to hear from you!

If you have the Plus with the upgraded controller, you can easily upgrade the top speed to 25mph by pressing a few buttons. Not sure about the stock Runner though, the electric tape could be the only solution.

I just got my RR a few weeks ago. (Not the +) and did the tape trick. It worked. I also just ordered the Eggrider V2 from Luna Cycles. I havenít gotten it yet so I canít speak on it. But itís supposed to be plug and play. I canít wait to try it out.
I guess in the past there was an issue that caused some jerkiness when accelerating but it was apparently addressed in the latest firmware update. Also, the Eggrider is used to more improve torque rather than speed. Especially in steep hill situations. Thereís some videos on YouTube if you want to check it out.

It worked on my Radmission, however the odometer and speed stopped reading. The accelerator did not go faster than approximately 25mph, as far as I could tell but I could pedal much faster with continued power assist.  I changed it back and simply reprogrammed the bike to 25mph which is plenty fast for where I ride.

I tried the tape trick on my RadMini. The speedometer stopped working but the bike did not get faster, so I guess it depends on the model.
