Regen on V-moto & E Max 120S

I have a E Max or V moto 120 Silicone battery type and was trying to figure out the Regen thing. Reverse seems to work nicely. Trip odometer is goofy for it goes backwards sometimes but regen is little or nonexistant. My VX-1 can stop real fast by Regen but my 120S has no braking power if any at all on Regen. Brakes work real fine though. Is there a Potentiometer to tweak some where? I believe the Regen is same as reverse by using little green button which is hard to use. Here in Bean Town we have a few steep hills and it kills the battery trying to go up at a whopping 10 or 11 MPH or less. The quality of the scooter is superb. But the owners manual has a lot to be desired. The pot holes here are rough but nothing broke yet. The voltage on the volt meter will go up by a few tenths but nothing drastic and no slowing down the scooter. I rewired the Anderson plugs to yellow to match my E-20 and can charge very fast for 80AH pack but still I would like to recover down hill energy and put it back in battery pack.
Going down hill I can top 30 plus MPH easy. I might of done 40 once. I use eco mode mostly and never or hardly normal or MAX. I have lots of Anderson power poles on the scooter to run my house during power outages too, in order to get the most out of those expensive Lead battery pack. 60 AH 5 Hr, or 80 AH 10 Hr Silicone pack at 48 volts.
Is Regen tied to Reverse some how? I figure it must be there some how. Speedometer is fairly accurate but odometer is really whacked!!! Maybe this scooter is like the VX-2 but mine is half the price of the VX-2 being sold on the web somewhere. Also far better quality than the XM-3500 series.

Question about 2006 Emaxx Sport scooter

I have not ridden mine in a LONG time. I know the original silicon battery are DEAD. However I am thinking of bringing it up again in the next year using 60volt PING PING lithium battery. However I got some questions since I have been out of it for so long:

1. Anyone use the 60Volt Ping Ping lithium battery and if so how do you like it or should I just stay with 48volts ???
2. If I upgrade to 60Volts, do I need to upgrade the stock controller and if so what needs to be done and how ???
3. What is the average sustain and MAX current that the Emaxx uses so I can get the appropriate lithium battery from PING.

Thanks again for any info. God Bless :)

Regenerative braking / charging

I was wondering what the little green button is for on V - Moto, eMax, maybe VX-2 scooter. Behind the front left lever near brake lever is a tiny green button when pressed is shows a charging process and voltage goes upto 50 or more volts but no decrease in speed going down hill. My VX-1 going down a steep hill will try to stop the bike and allow recharge of pack I suppose. But there appears to be no braking just a small amount of voltage increase. I got one of the last V Moto scooter from Ohio and the over all quality is there, or seem to be there but I am concerned about the lack of braking via regen??? The way I figure, if you take a forward motion and run it into a generator into battery pack then it should take away some forward momentum power and slow down vehicle.
Is there a way to increase charge power and slow vehicle down rather than wear out brake pads. I see the words or letters V Moto and eMax and the scooter looks like VX-2. Very nice quality but slow compared to 125 volt VX-1 The handle bars look like Vectrix and styling looks a bit like it. Brakes are terrific. Oh if I squeeze the brakes and give it throttle, the scooter goes forward. I think that is sort of unsafe. A friend was chatting with me while I was on scooter squeezing front left lever brake and he twisted throttle and I was launched. I was shocked the controller allowed me to move while brake light was on and light pressure was keeping me stopped but not totally locked.
I am trying to rack up the miles in order to test battery pack, odometer readings and ride period. Even though it is a small scoot, I sure would like reverse and bigger regen.

2006 E-max Sport drum brake

I'm the new owner of a 2006 E-max Sport. I have the drum brake "squeal" that I read can be cured by cutting a diagonal groove across the shoe. Does anyone have a dis-assembly diagram or procedure for getting at the shoe to perform this fix?

Emax Sport on Lithium

For any of you with an old Emax, or its decendents (Kasea, Emoto?), I followed the procedures listed on this site for improving the scooter's performance. Specifically, I switched to lithium-ion batteries, upped the voltage to 60v, and upped the current to about 100 amps. Now the machine has good speed and acceleration and is much more useful, safe, and fun to ride. If you still have lead-acid batteries in one of these machines, I encourage you to give the modifications pioneered here (Visforvoltage) a try.

Manuals and Diagrams for Old e-max

I get occasional requests for Manuals and wiring diagrams for the old GGC E-max. These are probably applicable to similar 2000 watt e-scooters under other brand labels too. I have put them up on a file sharing site here:

brand new 2009 Emax s90

I recently decided to sell my s90 out of my collection. I'm asking very little for the scooter and it is band new with only 90miles on it and never registered. The scooter is currently on eBay for sale. I figured people on here would be interested in this scooter so let's see...

E-max 110 S changing back tire very easy to do

Hi,
today my back tire was flat.
Put the Emax on the main stand, use the necessary screw driver and take out about 15 screws. Watch out, don't take out the 3 screws who where deeper, they hold the motor together. Now you can take away the outer ring. The tube comes out and in my case I fixed it with a patch (normally used for bicycles). I mounted everything together and it works fine.
Greets to All
