Electric Bike Kit Installation

The 250 Series

Installing your electric bike kit should be straightforward and fairly simple. Most installs of the 250 Series kits, for example, take about five minutes, but there are some bicycles that require filing the front forks to fit the larger 8FUN axle. This can lead to a longer electric bike installation process. There are also bicycles that may require an adjustment to the v-brake or disc brake system. If you are not familiar with these complex mechanics, we recommend taking your bike to a bicycle mechanic to adjust the brake system. Most of the work is simple, but it may be best left to a professional if you are not sure how to assemble an electric bike.

The 500 Series

Installing the 500 Series (500 Watt) kit requires a few more steps than the electric bike installation for the 250 Series because of the extra components that come with the e-bike kit. The 500 Series is also straightforward and may require troubleshooting, such as filing the front forks to fit the larger 8FUN e-bike motor axle. However, it requires installing the rear carrier battery rack or the tube mount battery rack as well. Additionally, these kits require removing the handlebar grip for the variable thumb throttle, as well as installing the pedal assist sensor (PAS) and the front wheel torque arm.
