Install Guide

 

Tools Needed:

  • 2.5mm hex key
  • 3mm hex key
  • 5mm hex key
  • 6mm hex key
  • 8mm hex key
  • rubber mallet
  • crank puller for square taper spindle

 

Procedure:

Step 1 Open seat tube access panel (3mm hex key). (1.1, 1.2)


Step 2 Unplug all three cables inside (black, blue, green). (2.1, 2.2, 2.3)

Step 3 Remove non-drive side crank bolt (8mm hex key). (3.1, 3.2)

Step 4 Use crank puller (4.1) for square taper spindle to remove non-drive side crank arm. (4.2)

Step 5 Remove the bottom bracket pinch bolts from the non-drive side of the bottom eccentric (5mm hex key). (5.1, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4)

Step 6 Use a rubber mallet to tap the drive side BB assembly out of the frame. (6.1)
IMPORTANT: Thread the green bottom bracket communications cable through the frame as the bottom bracket is removed. Ensure that this cable does not catch as bottom bracket is removed. (6.2)

Step 7 Removed drive side BB assembly. (7.1)

Step 8 Remove the drive side bottom eccentric cup. (8.1)

Step 9 Remove kickstand (8mm hex key). (9.1, 9.2)

Step 10 Remove rear side of the access port cap from bolt (10.1) Rotate access port cap 180°. (10.2)

Step 11 Thread both battery cables through the battery access port. (11.1, 11.2, 11.3)

Step 12 Rotate bike in stand so that the downtube is parallel to the ground. (12.1)

Step 13 Loosen both battery set screws inside the lower cable braze on (2.5mm hex key). (13.1, 13.2)

Step 14 Gently tug on the battery cables to remove the battery. (14.1)
IMPORTANT: If the battery is stuck or requires more than a light tug to remove contact Faraday for support

Step 15 Remove battery and place aside. (15.1)

Step 16 Slide new battery into battery access port. (16.1)

Step 17 Fully seat the battery inside the downtube. (17.1)

Step 18 Tighten both battery set screws inside the lower cable braze on (2.5mm hex key). (18.1)

Step 19 Thread both battery cables up the seat tube (19.1) and out the seat tube access panel. (19.2)

Step 20 Seat the Gates belt drive on the front belt drive sprocket.

Step 21 Hold the drive side BB assembly near the frame (21.1) and thread the bottom bracket cable up the seat tube and out the seat tube access panel. (22.2)

Step 22 Slide the Drive Side BB assembly into the frame with the bottom bracket spindle seated at the rear of the bike. (22.1)

Step 23 Replace the non-drive side eccentric cup.(23.1, 23.2)*

* If excessive friction prevents drive side BB assembly from being removed, contact Faraday for support. NOTE: Faraday is not responsible for damage caused to components by improper removal.

Step 24 Replace the bottom bracket pinch bolts in the non-drive side of the eccentric but not tighten (5mm hex key). (24.1, 24.2)

Step 25 Rotate the eccentric up (counter clockwise on the nondrive side) to tension the Gates belt drive (6mm hex key). See Gates documentation for correct belt drive

Step 26 Tighten the eccentric pinch bolts (5mm hex key). (26.1)

Step 27 Rotate and replace rubber battery access port cap. (27.1, 27.2)

Step 28 Reconnect all three cables in the seat tube access panel. (28.1, 28.2, 28.3, 28.4, 28.5, 28.6)

Step 29 Replace all three cables into the seat tube access panel. (29.1, 29.2)

Step 30 Replace seat tube access panel cover (3mm hex key). (30.1)

Step 31 Replace kickstand (8mm hex key). (31.1)

Step 32 Final Step Replace non-drive side crank and non-drive side crank bolt (5mm hex key). (32.1, 32.2)

* If excessive friction prevents drive side BB assembly from being removed, contact Faraday for support.
NOTE: Faraday is not responsible for damage caused to components by improper removal.
