My goal with this scooter is to build a solid foundation that will support my entire upgrade path.
Starting my build on a 60.00 Craigslist find. Scooter was lightly used and in good condition v1 but the charger (new aftermarket) didn't work, batteries were shot (knew that) and tires were old and stale. I purchased new AGM 9ah batts from the local batteries plus and way overpaid. It was the only place local I could get them and wanted to ride now! With the new batts installed the scooter can barely move me. Bummer. Stuck my kid on it and clocked 13mph. Humph. Did some research and think it might be the controller. I ordered the control and throttle combo from fastscooters on eBay.
Hopefully that will get me going, if not it'll be a nice addition to the new motor I'll be needing.
Went through the wiring and found one negative cable corroded along it's entire length. Broke the reset switch and removed it. Installed bullet connectors (have a ton of them saved from hobbyking lipo) and cleaned up some wiring.
Still not mobile for me yet, I decided to make it pretty. Why not Biggie?
Next up, lights. Ok. Done.
Parts are rolling in.
Ordered new tires and inner tubes from partsforscooters.com.
So that's where it stands now. New batteries, basically. I'm now figuring the dimensions of the battery tray to see what I can fit there. Parts ordered and on the way:
Front brake setup- rotor, caliper, lever/cable, rim.
