So I tightened all my main connections and checked my automatic fuse on the left but it was sorta good I guess. However no luck for me. I really thought I was gonna pull it off but I'm still being thrown the error code and I'm really pushing it hard to try to fix it.

From the beginning I thought it was some kind of power failure as if it just feels too much current or power is going through the cables. That is correct because I have upped the power at least 20-50%. Also the cables give out less resistance or ohm. Like 0,15 instead of 0,7 whatever measurement I did. In essence a lot less cable losses.

Why did I for a day and now again or get error 98 continuously while driving and for full last year having very few incidents of the sort?

Main connector positive side with the XT60 underneath looked bad. Is that the culprit? I will check next time when doing work on the bike this Saturday. Crossing my fingers until then.

Hello everybody. I'm active here because I like to share my work and the mods I do. Please write if you have time guys. Many things can be solved and that was the reason I bought my Super Soco TS in the first place and of course that it looks good, stealthy enough to blend in the local traffic.

I still have issues with error code 98 om my modded TC controller that I use with my TS. I installed my original TS controller back in and my bike is working

... so in the end my guess is that my connection is bad around the connection from the main positive and negative wire plus the thick phase wires. (TC controller here is 4 times powerful and I will test again to see if I can get it working because the performance is night and day)

Why my guess is the main thick cables is because all of them have big connector with big holes and if you use the original screw without any rings in between there will be no or a lose connection and even if I have it right I must center it. So fixing better connectors or install original again I think I can get a good stable connection. One time I had the same error and the solution back then was tightening these screws. This time there where no change and error code persisted so maybe I just have to do it again to make it work. If bad, start all over again.

A new motor could also solve this problem, hence my other thread; "TS with TC-max motor" using another brand of controller or stock TC-max for the TC-max motor and to keep original controller only for lights, and essential bike systems.

So I solved it finally!

error code 98 is both kind of too much and too little power in a sense. I upgraded my controller to use more amps which can be translated to more power and when I undid my modification the bike could run again.

I also had different battery cells last year which also to say can be that it did only supply a certain amount of amps it could. I had maxed my battery. When I changed my battry to become even more powerful my modded controller could drain more amps and power and hit the limit of auto turn off or whatever it is. In power I would say the limit of a TC controler can have a max speed about 8-85km/h up the the steepest hill you can think of. Now it is tuned down to lower than that and max speed maybe is 60km/h. Still 80km/h on level road which is too little I think. I want the max I can get but that needs time and if I fail I have to dial the power down again and spend hours and hours doing that.

Problem solved however.

My modded controller has to be tuned down and then it worked again. I tuned my TS conroller up also and it hit the limit an also threw the rror code 98 but as stated: Tuning it down again solves it.
