Just wanted to update here following a successful use of a tire on a Ninebot ES4. Yes it works, but it was a little bit of a pain to get working.
someone i know ended up having to reverse the wheel (install the wire on the right instead of the left) but i'm not convinced they really had to go through all that. If you switch the wires around until it spins the right direction AND runs smoothly i think you're good to go.
someone i know had a weird problem where it would only run when the brake was pressed.. brake was go and gas was brake. It was weird. But I think swapping the wires around and turning it on and off allowed it to reset and found the winning combination.
I'd recommend not putting everything back together all the way and running it on the ground so you can swap the wires quickly, it took me about 10-15 tries to get it right.
The winning combination (for someone i know anwyay) was wheel reversed , yellow to yellow, brown to blue , blue to brown.
The wheel is WAY quieter and seems to have more torque than the ES wheel it gets up to speed faster. did notice however that it seems to consume much more energy than I was expecting. My battery doesn't last nearly as long with this wheel, has anyone else noticed the same thing?
