Thanks for all the pictures, first time I can see inside that battery brick!
It's 3 layers, right? 120 cells per layer if I counted right, so 360 cells total.
And they wasted all that space using 20R cells. Unbelievable.

Are all the metal rods (except the threaded ones, that I imagine are to close the structure) for cooling? They just exchange heat between the cells and the large plates?

Samsung SDI INR18650-30Q 18650 3000mAh 2670mAh 20.0A

Repair was successful.
The error was gone.
Replaced one cell and all voltages are back to normal.
Electronics took a while to relearn.
Despite being fully charged, it had to be charged for a long time in order to be fully displayed again.

And don't be afraid of the volts. 100V You don't feel it at all. 200V makes a little shock. To be on the safe side, I didn't try 300V again :lol:

There was just one bad cell and the pack was unusable because of the error?

We were lucky. One cell pulled the other 6 down in parallel. As a result, too little voltage in one bank on the balancer and battery was no longer usable

Hi, I am buying a used KTM exc freeride soon, i was wondering . If i was to replace the 2000mah lipos with 3500mah lipos will i need to do anything else. Or just soldering in the new batteries is enough. Will the software and bms recognise the larger battery and ill have increased range?
Is it that simple?
Does anybody know someone who has upgraded these battery packs.
I read the new batteries from the 2021 model come with 3000mah lipos..

thankyou
