Installation tuning chip for Pinion eBike engines

The tuning module removes the 25 km/h limit of your pedelec.

All other properties and functions of your bike are retained as usual.

Here is a schematic representation to connect the tuning:

ebike tuning chip schema

1. Please turn off the bike and remove the battery from the frame. Then remove the shown cover on the motor by unscrewing the 3 screws with a Torx T20.

2. Disconnect the 3-pin connector to the speed sensor (orange) and the 5-pin connector to the display (green).

3. Connect the removed connectors to the corresponding counterparts on the tuning. Then connect the other two connectors on the module to the free slots on the motor.

4. Stow the tuning and cables in the frame and replace the cover.

Instructions for enabling/disabling tuning

To switch the support on or off above 25km/h, please change the support level one level at a time

down, up, down and up again (- + - +).

If successful, you will see the animation of the battery capacity display as when you switch on your Pedelec, which provides information about the current status.

Please enter the key sequence quickly and do not pause longer than 3 seconds between two keys. Please also note that you have to actually switch the levels to enter the combination. You cannot enter a combination that starts with the "down" key from the "off" level (or a combination that starts with the "up" key from the highest level). If the combination consists of several keys in one direction, you must start typing at a sufficiently low or sufficiently high level.

After switching on your pedelec, the tuning shows an animation of the capacity display of the battery. If the capacity runs from empty to full, your pedelec also supports you with motor power when you drive faster than 25 km/h. If the display runs from full to empty, the motor support ends at 25 km/h.

Important note on visiting a workshop or software updates on your pedelec:

Before you take your pedelec to customer service or have the system software updated, please ask whether the tuning will still work with the more up-to-date software.

For a software update on your system, the module must first be removed. Alternatively, there is the service mode on the tuning chip, which you must activate before an update.

To do this, please adjust the support level 3x down and then 3x up.

Start at the highest level. If successful, the gear display changes 3x from 0 to the software version of the tuning (e.g. 30). The service mode is now active and maintenance and software updates can be carried out on your Pedelec. The service mode is now active and maintenance and software updates can be carried out on your system.

The service mode remains active after the system is switched off. When you switch on your pedelec, no animation of the capacity display of the battery is shown as long as this mode is active. To deactivate the service mode, please use the same key combination as for activating or the combination for switching the tuning on and off. Please note that in service mode the motor support ends at 25 km/h.


- If you are not sure whether the service mode is active, please remove the tuning before the update!

- Please only activate the service mode for updates on your pedelec!

- A switched off tuning cannot be switched on via the combination for the service mode!

- After activating the service mode, we recommend switching off the bike without moving it again!
