Hi, has anyone managed to get any literature on this bike?
The manufacturer and authorised dealerships have gone quiet when I asked for PDF copies of specifications/Manuals/anything..

Cheers, Jerome

There is a Parts catalog from This website Motorino (Vancouver Canada Super Soco dealer) available for download. It’s not the best because there’s a bug when they posted it some of the part numbers are blocked. Here is the link.  https://www.google.ca/amp/s/motorino.ca/sdm_downloads/super-sogo-tc-max-spare-parts-catalog/amp/

Have you tried vmoto? I think they are the EU and/or UK distributor?
I'd be interested too. I usually do all my own spannering.

I've had my TCMax nearly 2 years and haven't even bothered with the 600 mile service. I'm hardly within range of a dealer, so just getting it there would be a massive chore.

I contacted vmoto to ask about servicing info. They couldn't even tell me how to tension the drive belt. So I guess we're on our own!

I checked my bikes belt tension when it was new using the Gates carbon drive app. The app gave a reading of 60hz. I can't really think of anything else that is unique to the TC Max and requires servicing. Things like brakes and tyres require the same attention as any bike. Be nice to have torque specifications for bolts etc though.

@drift Out of interest how did you check your tension. On side stand, upright or upright sitting on the bike? There’s a fair difference between them all and any other bike manufacturer would give these specifics but like you I’m unable to find details.
Iv been told before that a computer is required to re tension and align belt properly, which is complete rubbish as my motor in its mount wasn’t even aligned out of factory so needed some home adjustment to run properly.

@lhk I checked it on side stand. It's frustrating Super Soco aren't more forthcoming in providing information. They make a big song and dance about the bike having a Gates belt but won't give us any information on how to maintain or replace it! If this continues it will be a big barrier to sales. Why would anyone buy a bike without access to service information?

Thanks for the info on your motor alignment. I haven't noticed anything obviously wrong with mine but I'll check it out now. Since our bikes are fitted with Gates belts I assume the Gates app is adequate to set the tension.

@drift  the gates app seems to work well but I tension mine whilst sitting on it. I’m assuming the calculator online which gives the required Hz figure is based on its normal running position. Iv never had it slip and seems to run well but as you say would be nice to get proper info on this seeing as a belt/chain is really a weekly maintenance check on any bike which shouldn’t need to be done by a garage.

@lhk Is there a calculator on the Gates website? What was the number you got?

I agree, belt/chain tension is basic maintenance for any bike owner. Same as tyre pressures are.

@drift hopefully this link works for you but Iv also attached the screen shot of what my numbers came out as. Pretty much in the ball park of your 60hz.

@lhk That's great thanks. I emailed Gates to ask if they knew what tension it should be. They didn't mention they had a calculator!

There are mobile electric motorbike servicing if you wanted to use that - I bought my TC Max from English Electric Motorcycles and they provide mobile bike servicing anywhere in the UK. I think you can use it even if you havent bought your bike from them.

Cheers
