Charging the battery Canyon Speedmax CF 8

Postby colinmc400 » Mon Oct 22, 2018 6:07 pm

Any owners of late model Canyon Speedmax CF 8.0 with DI2, know the trick to access the charging port for the battery. I just got my new bike and Canyon say i just need to unclip the junction box, fitted in the bento box and the charging port is on the side. But my junction box just feels very solid and won't really budge.

Any life hacks for this one?

If it's anything like the Giant Trinity which has a similar arrangement, get a finger under the back end of the junction box and lift it up, give it a wriggle to disengage it from its locating stops and pull it out backwards, being careful not to pull too hard and unplug the cables!
I had a thought, but it got run over as it crossed my mind.

Finally got it last night, with a firm push of the junction box to the left, unhooking it from its position, Easy to see it once its out and will be no bother from now on.

Glad i checked, as the battery light was red and took a few hours to charge.
