Service App Installation and Help

The below instructions relate to the 2017 2×2-A and 2×2-B Production Bikes and provides the ability to troubleshoot and diagnose any drive train faults. This does not include the battery or general electric system. It also provides the ability to update the controller maps for each drive on the bike.


Required:

  • Windows PC. (Not currently available on a MAC).
  • Ubco Service Application downloaded and installed.
  • Ubco USB Cable provided in this pack.
  • Driver for the USB Cable downloaded and installed.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

  • There are two controllers in the bike, one for each drive (Front and Rear).
  • The cable connects directly to each controller.
  • The Front and the Rear Controllers have different Maps which are provided.
  • You will need to test and verify the front and rear before you do the update (procedure described in this instruction).
  • Loading the wrong map to the wrong drive will have a detrimental effect on the customer experience so care needs to be taken to put the right map on the right drive.

2×2- A & 2×2-B

There are two sets of updates which relate to 2×2-A and 2×2-B (which are the first four elements of the serial number). The front and rear controllers have different maps so each map needs to be applied to each controller correctly.

There are minor development differences between these two bikes which mean the updates have a variation below.

The 2×2-A Map Updates include:

  • Better throttle response.
  • Recalibrated temperature monitoring.
  • Increased acceleration
  • Increased mid-range torque
  • Increase top end speed
  • Improved efficiency at high speeds.

The 2×2-B Map Updates include:

  • Better throttle response.
  • Recalibrated temperature monitoring.
  • Increased acceleration
  • Increased mid-range torque
  • Increase top end speed
  • Improved efficiency at high speeds.
  • Instant torque from both motors at start up.

Checking connection and identifying the wheel.

The steps to connect your bike and ensure you are connected to the right drive is outlined below.

  • Plug the USB cable to either of the cables exiting the console into your USB port on your PC.
  • Turn the bike key to RUN to ensure the drive has power.
  • To be sure that the bike is connected to the App and supplying data by checking that the live fields in the App are populated.
  • To ensure you are plugged into the correct motor port on the bike: rotate the desired wheel by hand and watch for the vehicle speed to change. If there is no change in vehicle speed, try rotating the other wheel. The vehicle speed should change; this is the wheel you are plugged into.
