DIY 58v FICM Mod

Anyone tried this? I saw instructions and it does not seem too terribly difficult as long as you know your way around a board and can solder. Am I completely wrong? Really thinking about trying this, maybe this week.

DIY and mess it up guess what no Vendor will take it. You end up buying a whole new FICM.

Re: DIY 58v FICM Mod

anyone else have any productive input? I know that if you screw it up then its junk but hey...thats with everything. I am all about DIY. Kind of a "built not bought" philosophy, plus I guess I like seeing how things operate instead of just opening a box and pluggingit in / bolting it on.

So again, has anyone done this?

Re: DIY 58v FICM Mod

im not big into electronics and i did my own FICM repair, it was cake. I cannot see paying someone to do what took me 15 minutes of soldering. you send it off you still have to take it out and put it back in...the hardest part.

Re: DIY 58v FICM Mod

I just ordered all of the parts to attempt the 58v mod. I am not a professional solderer either. I will post results. Mine blew one of the FETs and the voltage was 46-49v cruising and always bouncing around. Give it a little more pedal and it dropped to 32v. Yanked it out and pulled it apart to find that MOSFET blew up. I ordered all 8 caps and 8 FETs. Forgot to order the 0805 size resistor 18kohm to adjust the power. I may just do the piggyback resistor mod because they are much easier to find locally.
