    Just in case anyone wants to see what the proximity sensor looks like, this is the page from the Lithium Battery Conversion Manual.

    Does anyone have a PDF of the Lithium Battery Conversion Manual they can post? I like having an electronic version, especially when we travel. Thanks in advance.

    The ZX-1 joystick. Does it have two or just a single method of speed control adjustment? And a question for users that programmed their speed options, before and after, well worth it?

    Asking for the individual that purchased the ZX-1 from me. I didn't use it and so don't remember well. Hoping there aren't issues.

    Thank you in advance.

    My ZX-1 runs at high speed mode regardless of the LED speed indicator. Changing the speed range on the control has no discernable effect. There have been a couple of suggestions to reprogram the control. Since I bought this ZX-1 second-hand, I don?t have a dealer to fall back on. I have two joystick modules that behave identically. How does one get a programmer?

    The linear actuator jammed in the full extension position. It would move neither in nor out and just made a click when I moved the joystick. We finally drove out the fastpin freeing up that linkage and then the actuator worked fine. It worked fine upon reassembly also. How do I prevent a reoccurrence of this?

    What to do about the air shock. Question of what's the proper air pressure for the air shock and whether I need pressure there at all or just lock it out as some people have done. Also, the air fill Schrader valve on the shock runs up against the gearbox disengagement lever with a lot of force. Neither one of them has broken yet, that we know of. It's a Fusion shock.02 rl


    The seller may have never experienced these issues because the ZX-1 was set up for 26" wheels. The first thing I did was reconfigure it for 24" wheels. That was a straightforward move of three bolts. I think I did it correctly.

    Thanks for any help. I?m really looking forward to using this.

    endo_aftermath, I'm so sorry you're having issues with the ZX-1 I sold you. I can't believe it locked up on you. I didn't experience these issues with it. May be a silly question but the actuator jamming, are the bolts you reconfigured too tight? Just a thought, I'm sure you've thought of that though. This really bothers me.

    If you don't get answers I'll contact Spinergy if you haven't. I want to get this figured out for you.

    If anyone can help endo_aftermath please consider, he's a good person.

    Endo, I've already configured my ZX-1 from 24" to 25" and then 24" again without any issue, I'm pretty sure, as you said, that it's only a matter of bolts and nothing else. If your ZX doesn't work fine after this setting, it's just a coincidence and you'll have to search the answer in the electric/electronic parts, more than elsewhere. But may be if the unit didn't serve for a while, is there some parts a bit stuck ?
    The airshock isn'nt the main part of the clamshell. In fact, it could be replaced with a simple stud without a change. I don't remember exactly, but I think mine doesn't have any, or minimal pressure, and is locked. I'm going to swap it with a rod ASAP, as I have the use for the shock on my handbike
    I don't have your issue with the Shrader valve ? Can you post a pict about that ?
    I believe the ZX-1 is a pretty strong and reliable device. I have mine since 2015, I use it more or less everyday without any issue (exept two or three cutoff after overloaded), you just have to put this one all in order and yes, maybe there's a bit of work but after that you'll be done.

    I have one of Pat's original model ZX-1. It's a bit older but no problems to speak of other than not getting much mileage out of a battery charge. I bought this with my own money as it wasn't FDA approved then. Now that it is, my insurance will pay for a new one if I want. Other than the Lithium battery upgrade, is there much of a difference between Pat's models and Spinergy's? I don't want to get a new one if they aren't up to the standards of Pat's. And Spinergy has not been a favorite of mine for customer service so am reluctant to deal with them.
