Rad UI Display and Rad UI Remote Replacement Guide

Follow this guide to replace the Rad UI Display or Rad UI Remote on your bike in the unlikely event either component becomes damaged or is determined to be non-functional by Rad Power Bikes Product Support. This article is relevant only for ebikes that come with the Rad UI Display and Rad UI Remote (e.g., the RadRover 6 Plus and RadCity 5 Plus). 

  Notice

If you are not confident in your ability to successfully and safely perform all steps, we recommend having the work performed or checked by a local, certified, and reputable bike mechanic.

You will need:

  • 3 mm Allen wrench
  • Flat-side cutters
  • A few zip ties
  • The replacement Rad UI Display or Rad UI Remote from Rad Power Bikes

  Notice

Hardware may vary (bolt head style) and/or require different tools. Use the appropriate head size and type of tool for your bolts. Ensure the tool is pressed firmly into the bolt head and turn slowly to prevent stripping.

 

Replace the Rad UI Display

Remove the Old Rad UI Display
  1. Start by getting the bike ready for maintenance. Turn off the bike, remove the battery, and press the power button to discharge remaining power.
  2. Unplug the Rad UI Display connector. Trace the cable from the back of the Rad UI Display to the wiring harness or jumper cable.
    • If your bike has a jumper cable, the Rad UI Display will connect to the jumper cable. (B, pictured below):
