Replacing the deck was the first thing I did too. The plastic one was aweful and dangerous.drc wrote: ↑Jan 30 2018 4:44pmSo the information is coming in thick and fast ! so i need time to digest everything . so my photo bucket is fixed for now so i will use this to post progress so watch this space. This is going to be a slow build as i want to tackle each part in bite size pieces .
in answer to some of the questions : i have replaced the deck and fitted a solid plywood deck and grip taped this. this was done on day one of ownership. the last thing i want is to slip of in a corner due to a slippy surface. i have also taken the advice an orderd a thumb throttle as being planted on the scooter will give me full control. I have also picked up a 3 position handle bar switch for toggling the different settings ( jogging speed, traffic speed , and all out hell speed) .
The controller is being planed and developed by EG as this is the brains of the operation and needs to right!
so this is something i am going to read up on for the next .
i plan to research and source all the part after this and lay them out and build it all in one go. Well that is the plan .
While you are messing with the deck seal up the battery box so dirt and water can't get in anywhere. Weather stripping is great for this purpose. It's sticky on one side and not on the other. Once you have it supposedly sealed up, spray the scooter down with water and see where the water is getting in. I bet you missed something. It took me 3 tries to get mine to be essentially weather proof. You will never be able to immerse the scooter, but riding in driving rain or through a deep puddle shouldn't be a problem.
