The tool is helpful but it is difficult to get the nut tight enough. Like carrying old wire handle drums but tightening a nut. Also, there is not opening in the tool to tighten the nut unless the peddles are detached.
I bought this and the sockets because I couldn't tell if you needed both. I needed both - Norco Bigfoot 6.2 4 stars because it is could be a bit harder (less easy to bend) and could do with an offset as noted in other reviews.
I was really glad I bought this wrench to fit my BBSHD. It made life so much easier. I would strongly advise getting one of these. It could do with an offset, but it does the job anyway.
Does the job. A quality tool. Nice looking.
Works fine and you need it for the build. Like another reviewer wrote, it might be a good idea to include this tool in the kit as you can’t do it properly without it.
Buy this tool. If you don't have one you'll need one to do the install. It would be nice to have it a little smoother round the handle. But I'm splitting hairs. Its vital for the install. Remember to buy one!
This was the only disappointment with the kit. This certainly works, but I have not been able to get my BBSHD tight enough with this tool and it has come loose several times. I am waiting for the socket wrench Luna tool that I can use on my torque wrench. I had the following issues with this tool: 1. It is milled, and the edges are razor sharp. I initially cut my thumb when trying to tighten it, then resorted to wearing leather gloves to use it. 2. It is flat, should be offset. Very limited position you can actual use it without it hitting the frame. 3. It is too small/flimsy to get the required torque. I resorted to gripping the end with a pipe wrench to increase the mechanical advantage. Kind of worked, but it bent the ring on the other end meaning I can no longer use it with the lock ring (Pipe Wrench works on the lock ring, but roughs it up). I hope Luna Mate starts supplying the proper Luna tool that is a copy of the Bafang one. That is what's needed.
I paid the money and got the tool because I couldn't be arsed trying to make something else do the same job. It's great and looks kind of snazzy. It would be good if it had a bit of an offset and wasn't flat but that's not big deal.
Bolt, plug and go. Fantastic. The most fun you can have with your pants on. Plenty of power to climb hills at speed or cruise forever. If it came programed with throttle only mode on power assist 0 it would be perfect. Small note for improvement. Voltage indicator limited to 56.3v When entering access code pedal assist is on high power. This is a bit of a first time safety surprise as most would assume it's off or on defult 1 until code is entered. Otherwise very happy.
