@Alexmcc Almost $500 including shipping.

RE: Major push back with batter reading at 90%.
@Alexmcc How old is your board and is it still under warranty? I had this issue at around 1900 miles on my XR (out of warranty), but it first happened at around 35%, then the next ride, it was 70%. After the first walk of shame carrying my board about 4 blocks, the second time I was 1.5 miles from home, so I had to Uber it. Anyway, called @Future-Motion and they said that most likely 1 or more of the cells was bad. Sent it back to them for new batteries and all has been well . . . just crossed 5000 miles on the board and keeping my fingers crossed. The FM battery replacement was expensive, especially with the shipping, so if these go bad, I'll probably go with one of the aftermarket solutions and do it myself to save some $$$s.
RE: Foot sensors deactivates while it says i was going 25mph???
@bgood420 There are TONS of posts about nosedives happening for various reasons. If you truly are going anywhere near or over 20 mph, you are courting disaster. The max speed is dependent on a lot of factors including rider weight, battery charge level, incline, etc. A few years back, I saw a youtube video of kid (I think he was 90 lbs) breaking 30 mph on an XR! Anyway, there is no warning of a nosedive, except pushback (look it up or read the card that came with the board). For me, I can't feel it at those speeds. I (as well as a TON of other people) have been asking for an update to the app that will do a notification (sound and vibrate) at a user set speed, but alas, @Future-Motion insists on adding social features, like leaderboard updates and such, instead of this one highly requested safety feature.
Anyway, as a long time rider and one who hasn't crashed since the 600 mile mark (doing 21 mph and, like you, road rash everywhere), my solution was to get a smart watch (Wear OS or Apple) and run the OneWheel app on the watch. This way, I can tell my battery level and speed at a glance. Since my crash I am now coming up on 7000 OW miles and I keep my speed at or below 17 mph. This is plenty fast for me and for my weight of 175, the board never fails me.
RE: Can we combine the front footpad sensors to act as one big sensor?
The ideal solution for @NotSure above would be that if the board were in "slow mode" (under 1 mph or whatever that limit is) along with simple stop turned on, then either pad would allow the board to continue operating. In this mode, higher speeds would not be affected, keeping the high speed nosedive protection intact. It could also be a sub option under simple stop so it could be set separately if desired.
That said, this would require @Future-Motion to make a software change in the app and on the board, which I wouldn't hold my breath for as the only changes they seem to make are to the leader board features. I (and MANY others) have been asking for a configurable speed notification for YEARS, but such things don't get their attention (I've even suggested this on the phone with them, only to be told they would suggest it to the devs). It also assumes that @Future-Motion even looks at this board (which we all know they don't).
I agree with most responders above that making a wiring change to affect this would be a dangerous mistake, but then that's just IMO, as I have no need for such a feature. :)
How long has your XR battery lasted?
So my first set of batteries on my XR lasted about 1900 miles. It started pushing back at 53% one day, then it was no longer ride-able after that as it would push back every few hundred feet. Sent it in and FM replaced the batteries. I'm now at 4500 miles on my XR, so that's 2600 miles on the new(er) batteries. Post back with how far your XR has gone on a set of batteries, I'm wondering how much further I might expect to go on this set. I'm sure everyone is different as one battery cell going bad breaks the whole set.
RE: XR Treaded Tire Selection
@Kielanders I ran a Hoosier Treaded V1 on my original + for about 900 miles or so before I sold the + and got my XR. On my XR, I swapped the Vega for the Burris at 300 miles and ran that tire for about 2700 miles. The Burris was still in really good shape, but I decided to try the new Hoosier Whisper T2 and I really like it. The Hoosier T2 now has about 1500 miles, but definitely wearing faster than the Burris as the treads are getting pretty low (I think it's a softer compound, hence the "whisper"). So, with the Hoosier being more expensive than the Burris, I'm undecided what to get next . . . perhaps I'll just remount the Burris!
My riding is about 90/10 pavement vs gravel and I'm ~6 feet tall, 175 lbs. I do no off roading at all, I prefer smooth floating. I will no longer ride a non-treaded tire as the grip on wet pavement, wet grass, leaves (wet or dry), as well as the occasional mud is WAY better. The treaded tires also don't seem to pick up leaves and get them jammed into the fender area nor do they get little rocks stuck in the rubber like the Vega.
Both the Burris and the Hoosier T2 carve better than the Vega, with the Hoosier being just a little more squirrelly, but not uncomfortably so, so you won't regret either one. In my opinion, @Future-Motion should offer a treaded tire option for their boards at order time.
