This is my new back wheel and hub. I have this exact wheel in the 10" size or 3.00x10 tire on my blue scooter. They are decently well machined and balanced. The factory bearings are inexpensive steel bearings, but are a standard size that is readily available. I should have 4 of them in ceramics already. They should arrive just in time for Christmas!

I swapped out the craptastic factory throttle for a new one and of course it doesn't work. It's probably a bad linear hall. LOL...another craptastic throttle.
I have these Chinese LED lights in as headlights right now. I'm not overly impressed with how bright they are. Better than the 48 volt light bulbs that used to be in the sockets, but still not impressive. Since I've never gone anywhere in the dark on this thing...who knows...they might be fine. I bought these lights because they go into the existing light bulb connectors which seal into the plastic reflective housing.
I've been messing with LED's recently and bought some XHP70.2's and XP-L2's in the brightest BINs of each. The XHP70.2 produces a good bit of heat, but it is sooooo bright too! I have some aluminum Chinese bike lights coming. I think I might swap out the above LED lights for some legitimate CREE goodness inside those bike lights and mount them in place of the factory light sockets. I'll need to add a larger heat sink to them since they will be mostly enclosed.
I thought this was weird and I think I'll change how it's done currently. There's 2 light switches on the moped. The right one has 3 positions...off, tail light only and headlights. The left switch is hi and low beams for the head lights. There's no front or side facing running lights in the first switch position. The moped has 2 sets of directional lights on the front as seen below. The 2 large lights close together are the head lights. The other 4 are directional lights. I think I'll leave the lower down set as directional lights and change the handlebar lights into low beams. On the left switch the XHP70.2's will turn on as the high beams. I'll also add some strip or COB LEDs on the front and sides as running lights that turn on with the right switch in it's first position. There's several reflective areas in the various lenses that would work well for this.
I have a Castle Creations 15 amp BEC coming. It's effectively a programmable BUCK converter. It will work well on 12 volts in and can be adjusted down to whatever voltage I want to run the XHP70.2's at if I choose to go with 2 of them in a 6 volt configuration.
