How to fit the Inline Brake Sensors

Brake sensors are an option add-on accessory that customers can purchase. Without the brake sensors the motor will still turn off a moment after the pedals stop turning or the throttle is disengaged.

Fitting the brake sensors requires the brake cable to be removed and replaced. If this is not done properly then the brakes may not function correctly, which can cause a serious accident. If you are not confident with working on your bike’s brakes, then we recommend taking the bike to your local bike shop or bike mechanic help to fit the sensors.

If you’re going to attempt to fit the brake sensors with no previous experience with working on brakes, fit only one brake sensor to the rear brake and leave the front brake without a sensor as a backup.
