Had the bike for 6 months, and very happy. Newbie here.
Son came home and complained that when turning left, the power lights would go off and the motor would cut out. Even a slight deviation left from straight caused this issue.
Took the cover off and pulled each of the cables separately (I assumed there was a kink or something)...no dice.
Any thoughts?
TIA
 
Sounds like you have a broken wire somewhere near the steering head. If you have a meter and know how to check continuity the wires feeding the display that would be a start.

The same thing happened to me but it was when I turned right. I don’t know how to fix it thoug.
 
That was my first thought, and yes. But it's not just the display, it's actual drive/power
I would look at battery connections in that case. Although that doesn't make sense why it would lose power when turning the handlebars. I'm still thinking it has to be something at or near where the wires are at the steering head.

I have the same thing but with turning right
I think maybe it needs new wires but I still don’t know.
 
Question, when turning and the power drops out/screen goes blank, will it power back up with the handlebars turned, or do they have to return to the center position before power will turn back on??

the bike turns back on when in the center position it’s only when I turn left does it turn off
 
Would love some help still! Please respond if anyone has found a solution
 
Trace the cable connections from handlebar to controller.

If the handlebar position is the only factor that allows the unit to turn off, likely the cables are too short for the handlebar position and pulls the cable hard enough to disconnect the power when handlebar is turn to one side.

Adjust your handlebar location so the cables are not as stretched and see if the problem remains.
 
mine was doing this too really weird stuff like it made me power assist or it wouldn't go ,handle throttle bar and position had to be at consistent or power would die
i first dove in the guts inspected, nothing major stuck out. since it was the handle bars positions that made it turn on or off so i opened up the throttle i inspected it and, side note, its not to fun to do that,, so a few weeks later I took the shell offf again and this time reseated every wire i could and it works...for now , so its gotta be something with the cables\connections


Hope this helps
