So I bought this upgrade and it came with no directions, and I can’t find any installs on Youtube. Anybody got some help for me. I have contacted Aventon, but the infamous customer service, has not replied.

thanks in advance

The hardest part is the controller location. It's in the bottom part of the down tube. How handy are you. Be honest to yourself. If you're handy it's not bad to replace. It is a little tedious. If not get it done by bike shop. You need to remove the tie wrap holding the wires together under the bottom bracket and the one holding the wire going to the rear hub. Disconnect wire going to rear hub. Remove battery tray holder on end of down tube. You need to pull the old controller out of downtube. Disconnect all wires. Easy. Color coded and different plugs. Connect the new controller the same way you took apart the old one. You need to fish the long wire through the bottom and route to rear hub. Connect that wire. After making all the connections on controller push back into the down tube. Close it back up. Take your time. Don't shove it in very tight. Reinstall bottom battery tray cap. Replace the display. Very easy. Will not work with old display even though they look exactly alike. Careful on cable connections at display and rear hub. Line up the arrows push together.

I bought two one for my wife’s ebike level step through and one for my level ebike. They were easy to install I downloaded the instructions. Hardest part is my big hands getting down into the bottom of the tube. What a big difference in riding my wife and I both enjoy the throttle on demand. It makes for a much safer bike, taking off from stoplights is now a breeze. I also upgraded my stem on my handlebars are now elevated and moved closer to me and I’m having a lot less stress on my shoulders since I sit up straighter. I also put on a touring seat which feels great on my butt since I just had a spinal fusion done and I took the preload off of the front forks so it makes it a sponge your ride but very comfortable. I feel like I have a new bike I had 700 miles on it before I did these modifications.

Thanks for the replies, Aventon did get back to me and the direction they sent were perfect. Everything was quick and easy, and I love the throttle now and the controller is much more linear and not so abrupt. All is good here.

Has anyone tried the new colored display with the new updated throttle on demand ? does it still work? I would rather have the TOD than the display update but would like to have both. My phone went dead the other day on a long ride.
