Well I just received that pentagon security bit from fullcompass and it doesn't fit. It's just slightly too big. I think it still may work though if I use a hammer to force the bit in, cause it looks like it's just slightly too big. If that doesn't work, I may try to file it down or find some kind of grinder.

can you post amazon or ebay link? I did bought but it not fit
You can get it to fit with a file. Takes a little time and patience, but completely doable for even non crafty people like myself.

Just drill then out.

I recently did this with a Spin snsc 2.0. Even the screws that hold handlebars on are an odd security shape (5 sided, looks like a house a kid draws.)

It took a bit but start with a small bit, drill as far as you can into center of bolt, and repeat with a larger bit (a bit just smaller than the bolt) and you will get it.

I went a different direction... drilled out the center post of the screws and used an extractor.

worked like a charm, bought replacements from Ace Hardware in their specialty item bins.

I drilled mine out as well initially, but afterward I was really curious about the pentagon screws and it became kind of a challenge to find a bit that works for them. Also, you can never have too many tools and who knows when I may need the bit again(which was actually this weekend).

Dont go the BLDC method, for a scooter this nice its not worth it. Get a VESC and configure it with field oriented control and regenerative braking. Furthermore you can install a 3 dollar bluetooth module to connect to the free app which shows speed, range, current draw, voltage, load, etc. TBH it will perform better than a stock Max.

We’re still waiting for the Chinese factories to make a clone cirucit board for the ninebot Max. Then we need stock firmware to flash but that shouldn’t be hard... we just need someone to extract and make a copy of the firmware from their personal ninebot max
