These are old pics recovered from the old forums. Many thanks to the archive team.

Disassembling ratchet mechanism on my 900W junk scooter.

Greasing it.

All back together. Missing a ball or two, but it still works.
dscn0678.jpg

Trying to fix the rear sprocket. Unsuccessful.
dscn0680.jpg

Tube liner from local bike shop. Great stuff for preventing flats. Took 1 strip and cut in half, then taped them together to accommodate smaller wider tire.
dscn0681.jpg

Front wheel after it "popped" apart. Tire pressure was too high, and bump was way too big.
dscn0683.jpg

Navitas TSP100-36 controller with wiring diagram. 36v 100a peak.
dscn0688.jpg

Installing the controller.
dscn0689.jpg

Installed.

Insides of old junk controller. Note mosfets mounted on side wall, bad for transferring heat to controller bottom.
dscn0692.jpg

Scoot with nice little mirror, shunt and meters. Course they are coming off very soon for my bike project.

Andrew,

Great set of photos but can you would place some verbiage under each one so we know what you did or what the photo is.

Thanks,
Chas S.

P.S.
Good to see you have your new avatar working.

`Chas,
We received a request from Andy asking if he could post a comment to each of his awowk - Lost and Found Images. The images were placed here and My KZ750 electric motorcycle project for him to add his comments. See: Re: From Our Voltage Forum Archives - _awowk - Lost and Found Images

Kind of remind me of the old "wordless workshop" feature in "Popular Science Magazine....

What is the make and model of the Chinese scooter you are fixing up? I noticed the picture of the old controller you show looks to be the same as the controller on my X-Treme XB-508. I assume the motor on your fixer upper is brush-less?

Re: Fixing up my Chinese scooter

sorry that I missed your question.

I have an evalbum page here

I don't know the make, the model is x-900. I think it may have been manufactured for xtreme and maybe it didn't meet quality standards, or its just a clone. It shipped with an xtreme x-500 manual if I remember correctly. The motor is a brushed type permanent magnet motor rated 900 watts at 36v 33A. I've got pictures of the insides, if you want I can post.

Where did you place the mosfets?

I didn't move them, but that might not have been a bad idea. If I did I would have mounted them to bottom, but instead I just got a different controller and gave this one away.
