Picked up a Razor Imod for my Daughter about two weeks ago for $100.. guy said it worked good but would not hold a charge.

I started off by tearing it apart, then Powder coating the Rims Neon Pink.

So far ive Bought and installed the following new parts..

3- 7ah-12 batteries
1- 36v-MX500 Controller & Throttle
1-36v charger port
1-24v 500 watt Motor
2- Custom Hello Kitty Decals
1- Schwinn Wireless Comp/Speedo
1-Bell LED Headlight

Right now it has a 12t/80t Sprocket setup. Rims are 16'' with 2.125 Tire's
I have the following parts Ordered and on the way.
13t Motor sprocket
55t & 65t rear sprocket for Speed testing

I sent the ugly Factory grey seat to my buddie to have him Recover it with a High grade Black Vinyl with a Pink Hello Kitty embroidered on it .. should have that back and installed in about two weeks..
I planned to install some Pink LED underglow Lights also.. Trying to get it all done for her 11th B-day

very very nice. My daughter would love this! I'm horrible because I ripped hers apart to hotrod it. She wasn't a fan of a 1000watt motor on 60v. I let her run a razor dirt bike on 48v and she did great, but she doesn't like speed. she's 12 and happy with 24v. I let her run an e300 but with a big 80t sprocket so it's a puller.
Does this thing have a speaker dock?! Hers is the pocketmod with 12" wheels...not fun to turn with! I bet yours is comfy. Excellent choice on the motor! stock gears on 36v is 3300rpm;24mph. 13/55 gives you 37mph. it'll take all day to get there.

i used 11/44 gearing 36v 1000watt motor on 48v and hit 26mph top speed with my 165lb self. 4000rpm

Yes it has a Built in FM radio with a ipod Dock..

I had a Red pocket mod "hot mod" she was riding . it had the 12'' wheels. I upgraded it to a 36v with a 24v -350 watt motor & MX500 controller & Throttle, it would run right at 24 MPH.. Not real stable in Turns with the 12'' wheels..

This Imod scooter with it 16'' wheels should be alot better rider, and its alot bigger then all the other Pocket Mods..

ha ha. I also used a 350watt motor after i intalled the 1k motor. but then i stole the 350watt for a double motor project and put the 1k back in it.
You're kid must be a daredevil wanting more speed. I love it!
#5250
So I'm looking up motors and the Imod apparently comes with a 350watt stock.
The e500 emomes with a 400watt Curries style motor.
I see you've already installed the 500watt...it's so much bigger than the 400. You'll love the cooling vents on that motor. 36v should be a fun time for her. Heck my e300 swapped the 350watt and my 1st ride on 36v was a lot more powerful than I expected. You're running 27.4amps vs. 19.2amps
your motor is rated at 2500rpm so it will turn slightly slower than the 350watt will but it will have much more power!
790watts for the 500watt
553watts for the 350.

3000rpm for the 500
3100rpm for the 300....you'll have way more take off power with the 500.

Thanks for the Info... i was wondering were it would be with Overvolting the 24v500 motor..

Got a few other things done on it over the weekend..

Tinted the fake headlight cover.
Added a Remote controlled LED headlight..
Added a few Hello kitty fender Decals

Got all 72-Pink LEDs mounted and wired..
Just waiting on the Custom seat to get here later this week..

Couple updated Pics..

dang those are bright. looking great! What are you powering them with?
for round about purposes I do this;
for rpms i take the rated rpm divided by the motor times the final voltage=new rpm
motor's rated current in amps times the final volts gives you the watts. take those numbers @ 80% efficency to get a baseline.
Thank you Uncle D and timmy2time for the tips and the go kart calculator...they are pretty accurate. I've also run bell bike pc's on the scooter to verify.

My scoots are all beaters...can only ride offroad in my area. So cosmetics haven't been my strong suit. It's really neat to see the different cosmetic come through the forum.
For just buying this scoot out of the blue, you really knew what to do and what parts to use. like using the 24v 500watt motor. It will be more powerful than a 36v on 48v. I would look into cooling the motor with the speed gearing. They can get pretty hot without worry, but if you find you can't hold your hand to it then there are options.
ScootThis has found an awesome heatsink/fan for $20...might squeeze under the fender...couldn't use it on my MX because the motor was between the swing arm. You arleaset have a motor bracket so it should be a snap.

Right now I'm running the LEDs off one of the battery's and a 12v micro switch. But I'm looking into another small rechargeable 12v battery just for the LEDs..
I am planning on making some type of intake/Air vent to cool the motor.
#5275
Yeah we are legal to ride on most local roads with 50cc Gas or Electric scooters with Max speed of 30-Mph..

My green scoot is "technically" 50cc"s... 180-200cc motor is Possible soon. Ive been kicking the idea around about a fast all Electric setup also..
#5322
That is great! Is it nice enough out to ride? It's like seattle over here?!?? I drove home tonight with the windows down and a t shirt in january! In the 50's but too wet to ride!
#5330
post a vid if you can! Could you also show the folks at home how you mounted your motor? I know you already have everything put together, so don't fret. It's just cool to see how each person has made it work.
#5369
Well finally got it out for the first Test Ride..

With the 13t/80t setup Here is what we Got... Still have the 65t & 55t i can Try...

I will get some Pics of motor mounted soon.. But basically i redrilled Four new holes in the Frame/motor plate and used some spacers to move motor Higher to clear the frame..

awesome! That thing is fast. the imod must have a bigger motor plate...the bigger tires gotta be nice! The pocket mod feels like it'll dump on every turn. I had to extend the motor plate on my pocket mod. I just bolted a junction plate from the hardware store along with some frame braces. It looked like an erector set, but it works just fine on 60v.
I'd try the smaller gears, but not with her on it! She'll be hitting mid 30s!!

Yes i was alittle suprised to see that speedo MPH with the 80T rear sprocket...LOL

my razor mx650 had 16" wheels, a 36v 650watt motor running on 60v 7ah batteries, stock 30amp controller, and 11/60 gearing.
I could hit 24mph on it. I let the neighbor boy try it and he hit 27mph! you have 2 less batteries!
