E-Max Sped Restriction help

Hello... I own a 2005 E-max EP 2000 Sport and would like to remove the speed restriction on the controller as discussed many times in the Forum. The controller, located in the battery compartment, that is now on the scooter does not appear like any of the images I have seen in the V articles and archives- this is possibly an early model or replacement. I'd like to know if there is a way to change or adjust this controller to remove the speed restriction.

The scooter has 48 volts with SLA batteries in buddy packs and runs well. I have not got around to making it 60 volts. The rearrangement of the batteries increased the range to about 33 miles. When I checked the operation of the relay switches, the compartment appeared to be modified- does the controller belong in this compartment, rather than in the battery area?

Any help would be appreciated.

How to get fuel gauge working if the charger has been uninstalled of vectrix 2008 model

Last month my charger packed up and attempts to fix it failed as everyone knows that this charger is made in such a manner it's impossible to repair it.

I just managed to built a basic charger of course with a help from this forum to keep me going while I'm trying to accumulate money for the new charger ,the problem I'm facing is that my fuel gauge works like a revolution counter while riding ,displays full bar( 17 bars)if bike is motionless ,range estimator shows zero all the time it does not matter even if the battery pack is full and only way to know if I still have enough power is to measure voltage of the pack with a multimeter.

I need to know where could be a good spot to source 12V for battery cooling fans since the stock charger is no longer in the bike.
Are there any connections that I need to do to get the fuel gauge and range estimator working again?


i was hopeing that gmouchawar could send me a copy of the ev global service manual. thank you

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.


Scooter sold!

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