Color Display replacement guide

Use this article to replace the Color Display on your ebike. The process will vary slightly for each 2024 ebike model (Radster Road and Radster Trail, or RadWagon 5 and RadExpand 5 Plus), so follow the corresponding steps below for your model.

Tools needed:

  • Set of Allen wrenches (2.5 mm, 3 mm, 4 mm)
  • Flat-side cutters
  • A few replacement zip ties (if necessary)
  • The replacement Color Display and Remote from Rad Power Bikes

Take pictures of cable connections and routing before you start, as once you replace the Color Display you will reconnect everything in its original position.

Radster Road and Radster Trail

Remove the Color Display and Remote

  1. Get the bike ready for maintenance. Turn off the bike, remove the battery, and press the Power button to discharge remaining power.
  2. Unplug the Color Display and Remote connectors. Trace the cable from the back of the Color Display to the wiring harness, and manually unwrap the cable cover to access the connectors. Gently pull the connectors directly apart without twisting. Then trace the cable from the remote to the back of the Color Display, and gently pull apart without twisting to remove.

Install the New Color Display and Remote

  1. Install the new Color Display. Pass the display clamp over the handlebar center and use a 4 mm Allen wrench to tighten both bolts until secure. Adjust the display so it is visible to the rider.
  2. Install the Remote. Pass the remote clamp over the handlebar next to the grip, and use a 3 mm Allen wrench to tighten the bolt until secure.
  3. Connect the Color Display and Remote. Connect the Color Display connector to the wiring harness by lining up the internal notches and pins (and external arrows) and push the connector ends directly together, without twisting, to connect. Then trace the cable from the remote to the input on the back of the display and ensure the connector is fully inserted. Re-wrap the cable cover around the connectors as needed, and replace any zip ties you may have needed to cut.
  4. Power on the ebike. Install the battery and press the Power button on the remote to power on the ebike. Verify the new display is working, test the bike and Ride Rad!
