EBIKE TUNING DONGLES VS SOFTWARE FLASH TUNING

(EPlus, EMax, STUnlocker

 

 

Here a breakdown of the disadvantage of derestricting your ebike engine with a Software Flash Tuning.

 

 

THE DISADVANTAGE OF A SOFTWARE TUNING

  • Requires an agent with a computer tool to perform the installation (Eplus and EMax).

  • Requires an agent with a computer tool to remove the software (Eplus and EMax).

  • Can affect software stability (Shimano is well known for software update failures (2018-2020).

  • Does not allow for manufacturer firmware updates.

  • Detectable by the workshop scanning tool, if not removed early by an agent. 

  • Cannot be transferred to another ebike (1 key for 1 ebike).

  • Non transferable to a new owner as most likely the person that buys your ebike would not buy an ebike that has been ridden to the extreme.

  • Changing the power and torque settings of your ebike modes come with some serious disadvantage.

  • Compromised bike handling and manoeuvrability.

  • Extreme wear and tear on the engine and drivetrain components.

  • High risk of engine components failure.

  • Common battery overheating problems (dangerous) with engine turning off and possible permanent battery failure.

  • Possible bike frame and swingarm failure (cracks on the aluminium frame).

- Eplus is the most expensive software tuning at a pricey AUD450.

- Emax full software derestriction costs AUD180.

- ST Unlocker (Shimano engines) offers the same features as the EPlus but cost only AUD48 and do not require to book an agent for     the software installation / removal.

 

07/2020: Bosch has released a software update that allows to increase the engine torque from 75 to 85Nm. The software update is performed at your ebike shop by a Bosch-certified technician.

Shimano is launching the new 2020 engine with 85Nm of torque and most likely a software update will be available for the previous generation of Shimano engines.
