Bafang Shift Sensor For BBSHD BBS02

This is the Bafang shift sensor. We sell more shift sensors than any other small part. There is a very good reason for that. It does not matter what bike you are building the shift sensor make it shift smoother and will protect and preserve the entire drive train. The shift sensor shuts the motor off at the same time you shift gears. That relieves the pressure off of the drive train. Remember, there is a lot we can get away with riding a bike under our own power when it comes to shifting. When you add the power of a Bafang BBSHD or a BBS02 every shifting error will be magnified a hundredfold. These motors can snap chains under poor shifting. We use the shift sensor on all of our bikes. They are not expensive and easy to install.

Description

Bafang Shift Sensor For BBSHD BBS02

The Bafang Shift Sensor, also known as a gear sensor, will make your Bafang BBS02 750 watt or Bafang BBSHD 1000 watt ebike motor kit shift smoother.  Also referred to as a gear sensor as this device will momentarily cut motor power while shifting. There are two types of sensor, one for regular cassette derailleurs and one for internally geared hubs. Each type of shift sensor works a little differently. The GS-D is designed for derailleur type drive trains and the GS-I is designed for internally geared hub drive trains.

The Bafang shift sensor can be mounted in two places, either near the rear derailleur or near the shifter. Both the BBSHD and the BBS02 that we sell comes equipped with the shift sensor lead coming direct from the motor. If you do not have a motor with this extra yellow 3 pin, you can still install it near the shifter at the front of the bike using a Y adaptor. The Y adapter plugs into one of the brake cables then one will go to the shift sensor.

If you are building a bike with the Bafang BBSHD 1000 watt motor it is strongly advised you use the Bafang shift sensor. The BBSHD motor is so powerful it can/will damage the drive chain if one is not shifting correctly. In fact, it is a good idea to use a shift sensor on the BBS02 as well as it will provide smooth shifting.
