if you try for a steady cruise at half throttle, the controller feels over-senstitive, and the bike feels very herky-jerky. you're really careful with the throttle, you can get it to settle down, kind of, but even then it lurches and so on
does anyone else have this issue? how do I know which controller software revision I have?
This is almost definitely due to the way that regenerative braking works.
When you let off the throttle, the bike is applying an inverted torque on the wheel to reduce speed and generate electricity to charge the battery. This can cause the bike to feel extremely jerky when you re-apply throttle or when you let off.
This is inherent to the way the bike is programmed, however you can always disable or lessen regen with your programming cable and brake cut-out sensors. This is something I plan on making a video about, but until then, here is a great link to change this yourself!
why would the old cable throttle be any less glitchy?
My bike has the same issue since new( 2019) as long as I'm accelerating it's ok but trying for a steady cruise drives me nuts. There has to be an answer other than change to old cable throttle...at least I hope there is.
Electronic throttles are very sensitive I've had the same issue. Maybe trade it out for a cable throttle
