2008 Zapino Coast Central Calif.

I purchased a used 2008 Zapino in May, 2012. I've had problems with the battery. First, the switch went out. (It no longer turns off charger) Now, when I charge the bike, the red light stays on. After 12 hours charge, I unplug charger and the light goes green for about 5 seconds, then of course both lights go out (power and charge indicator). Has anyone had this problem? Will I ruin the battery charging 12 hours (overnight?) Would a new batter charger help?
I bought with only 78 miles on it and have just reached 1400. I want to get my money out of this thing as long as I can, especially with the price of gas.
Is there anyone in central coast of Calif. who works on these things? Where can I got a good education on charging batteries for this electric bike?
Thanks -

I have a xb 610.

Was wondering if anyone has put a windshield on this bike?

This might be an old topic; but: what mods can be done and can lithion ion batteries be used?

I have only had the scooter for two weeks.

Fed up with e bike

I have had repeated problems with back tire going flat. Be sure you check out how VERY COMPLICATED it is to get that tire and tube out for repair. It took my mechanic husband two days to fix and the tire went flat again in about 15 minutes. We put in a cushion around the tire to protect from spokes but guess we need to put in several. Also, good luck finding a tube for this size tire.

I would suggest you look at other options before you decide to purchase. I could never get any response from Dave for repair manual or hints on how to fix the rear tire. They are MUTE when it comes to problems.

Done deal. Hope it ends up being more useful and fun to the new owner.

Vectrix scooter batteries

I bought the Vectrix scooter yesterday. The batteries will not charge. The scooter has been stored for quite some time.

Is there any way to refurbish the NiMH batteries that came originally in the Vectrix.

New battereis cost $2,600.

Any information on the possibility of revitalizing the original batteries would be great !

Thank you

Selling XM-3500li

I never did try to find a buyer for my scooter, but I just got a nibble from a neighbor. We're going to take it to a shop on Friday to see if the charging problem can be resolved. I'm actually ready to sell as-is for a couple hundred bucks. We'll see how I feel after getting it fixed up. I really haven't wanted to use it more than a half dozen times in the past year or so.
