Here we go !

Took a bit of persuasion and also with the right tool. I was being a tool using the bloody big allen key to turn the bracket removal lol. Had to buy this ratchet today. And it worked after a few tries with the hammer. Not bad.

From now on please proceed with caution. Make sure you don't cross thread anything on the motor.

Noted Sir!

I got the motor fitted. Please has anyone got a video detailing how to connect the battery. I only have videos showing how to fit the motor and the display.

You have two wires: red to red, black to black. Ask Andy to send you a picture if you are not sure. Did you download the installation manual from the webpage?

I haven't even been on the Web page. I'd have a look now.

Yes red and black but there's another long cable I don't know where that goes.

I'd have a look now. Thank you.

The connectors only fit one way: battery
> extension > motor. Excess cable goes inside the bag. Ask Andy to send you some pictures.

I removed front derailer and left rear derailer and brake cables as they were. Maybe I only moved brake cable slightly to the side.
I am not sure what do you mean by connecting cables.

It is interesting you have both cables on the same side. What are they for?

Oh yes I took the front one off to fit the motor properly and also unlinked my chain to get it off now linking the chain in itself is a problem lol. I'm a rokie for real when it comes to DIY with bikes I tell you. I left the back one, i kinda figured that's more handy no need to touch it.

For now I got the motor set, the battery I'd need to drill a hole to fit it higher up other than that I think I have done good so far.

What do I do about the gear shifters? Do I connect this end when I take the old ones off?

I suggest you leave brakes as they are. It is unnecessary complication. Most likely you will be changing brakes to hydraulic soon anyway.

On picture there is a brake lever, not a gear shifter.

So I should leave the brake levers and just fit the throttle and the control?

So far I did power the motor, and tried the throttle, it moves the back wheel for a moment and then stops, also I can't spin the wheel backwards as I would normally is this a fault with my setup or is this normal?
