Bafang shift sensor extension cable 22″

This Bafang shift sensor, or gear sensor, extension cable is for the Bafang BBS02 or the Bafang BBSHD electric bike motor kit. It is just a little over 22 inches long. This extension cable gives the option of locating the shift sensor anywhere along the path of the shift cable. Nome of the newer motors have a Higo three pin plug at the bottom of the motor. This plug is for the use of the shift sensor. Some bikes are so large the shift sensor cannot reach the cable at the bottom on the motor. This extension will allow you to put the shift sensor just about anywhere in the bike.

You might also consider the speed sensor cable.

Description

Bafang shift sensor extension cable 22″

This cable is also known as a gear sensor cable. The Bafang shift sensor extension cable comes with Higo water resistant connectors. This cable extension works with the Bafang BBS02 and the Bafang BBSHD electric bike motor kit. Suitable for all Bafang Mid Drive Conversion Kits. A shift sensor is essential on any build that uses the Bafang BBSHD. Yes, that is our opinion but it is an opinion based on seeing a lot of damaged drive trains on an eBike. The Bafang BBSHD is a powerful motor placing all that energy on chain/cogset every time you shift. If one was to pause prior to shifting that would help. But you have to be sure you pause a 100% of the time. In fact, it would be reasonable to put a shift sensor on the BBS02 as well, for the same reasons. A shift sensor is not that expensive, simple to install, and we even provide an extension cable just in case you need one.

All the extension cables we sell are of the highest quality and we have never had a single one fail to do its job. When installing this cable be careful not to bend any of the small pins in the Higo connector. Be sure to push it firmly in place as that is what insures a watertight seal. If it seems hard to connect then insure the arrows on the connectors are lined up then try again. It should be a FIRM connection. Like all Higo connectors they need to be firm to insure it will provide protection against the elements.

In the event you have bent the small pins in the Higo connector do not panic. Gently use a very small screwdriver or other instrument and carefully move it back in place.
