I own OW+, today picked up a new XR and another XR is in parts because of faulty BMS.
I love OW, I hate FM's policy of no part replacement and no service center in Europe.
Can anyone explain me what's business advantage of not having part replacement program?
I'm not even talking about selling the parts - just replace them for fee when you receive the original one. What's there to lose? FM most likely have huge backlog of boards for servicing and they will always have.
A lot of users already change tires, do mods and part replacement so the argument of "we can't send you a part because you'll mount it wrong" is bs! I already fixed the ferrite core rattle, ffs! And now I'm looking to work around the BMS - how is it safer than selling me the part?!
I'm in Europe so shipment one way is $150, and I'm not sure about duty fees when board is received from service.
Replace parts for fee + premium == more income + happy users
What do I not get?
And what about the environment?!
It's not even that I can write "great product" because the first iteration of XR was rubbish… So it's great invention, not top quality, user unfriendly parts policy!

I love riding on the beach! I ride it 90% of time there. Started in October 2017.
My take on mounting the ShredLights
It took a couple of minutes to bore a hole in the plastic and use the short screw. Probably another type of self-boring screw would be better, will see 🤙🏻
I accidentally found out that they can be mounted on the brackets in two positions - lower gives better light and allows to plug the charger but is more exposed to rough terrain; the brackets can be also mounted with the screw closer to the wheel but I wanted more light.
Connect OW directly with Apple Watch
I don’t like to take out my phone, launching the app, waiting for it to connect to use it with my Apple Watch.
It’s possibl for Apple Watch to directly connect to equipment without using iPhone as an intermediary (I’m a kiteboarder and I use Woo tracker from woosports.com and I use it on with Apple Watch on the water).
Thank you for consideration!
