You'll be fine. Enjoy the ride

RE: What to do when your board doesn't connect at all!??
Agree the lights can't be changed without the app.
RE: Pint tire change, who’s done it?
Anything that uses leverage will break the bead. The 2x4 approach some use can involve jumping on it, so an impact load. Will work but a bit uncontrolled.
I used my drill press (turned off) so the drill chuck goes down onto the tire slowly. Really easy to control.
Another method I've seen used a car jack, with the jack sitting on the tire near the bead, under the tow ball of a car. As you wind the jack the weight of the car pushes down to break the bead.
In all cases, have a nice soft piece of timber between the wheel and anything metal. Don't want any extra scars.
RE: Clean one wheel
The bearings are not serviced. Basically they are greased for life and oil or sprays will remove the grease and fail them sooner.
The design of the OW relies in the bearing seal only, which is probably the bare minimum they can do. The badger kit adds an additional external seal, which is good. Its another layer of protection. However all seals have a clearance (gap) which allows contaminants into the bearing. If there is no clearance then you get friction and that will evemtually create a clearance or wear.
The whole point is to keep contaminants (dust and liquids) out of the bearing and let the original bearing grease lubricant do its job. Any improvement like the badger seal or other designs out there will help, as will avoiding exposing the bearing to dirty environments (but where's the fun in that!).
Sorry if that's a but preachy. Not intended to be that way.
RE: Can I buy a onewheel tire in NZ>
@Mykv craft n ride had a sale recently for free international shipping. Try connecting with those guys for a deal. Flight Fins wanted $70US to ship to Australia. CnR were $50US before the sale came up.
There will be tyre sellers in NZ, but may not be the best tyres for a OW. I work with a guy who races karts and tried a used dunlop from him. Wasn't a good experience. Very square profile, so a step backwards from the Vega even.
The Hoosier distributer in Australia didn't have the right tyre but could get it in. You could try hooking up with other NZ guys and order a bunch in.
RE: Complete shut down at 15% Battery?
@a_onekatie the App is a guesstimate bases on overall batt pack voltage only. Likely an individual or small group of cells in the pack were at the bottom end of their voltage range. The BMS monitors each cell individually and will have told the controller to warn/stop the rider to prevent battery damage to those cells.
Running the pack down and a long overnight charge will balance it out again and recalibrate the App.
RE: One Wheel + Plus XR Less Than 50 Miles w Original Packaging
@Ramphex tompeter is a regular. Think he might be a bot. Apart from announcing when a OW appears for sale on another platdorm, he doesn't say much.
