regen braking kicking in when not wanted now resolved.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Submitted by kevin smith on Wed, 07/08/2009 - 03:52
hi all i read some blogs some wile ago to do with sticking regen breaks or throttle sticking open a little .
well 1st probblem is the rubber grips they are a little on the rubbery side but for me not too much of a probblem
if i know about it in the first place well what tends to happen is while gripping the throttle the mushroom side inner you tend to squeeze
this and and there for it been very rubbery it tends to move inwards 2 to 8 millimeters is
enough to make it rub aganst the .fixed pice of plastic that the red kill switch is on there for making the scooter not free wheel
when throttle released or potentially may be even make the throttle stick on a little..??
and most recentally found probblem but easily resolved in seconds..
you tend to .
and i have had this probblem but it can be two things ........
1... probblem with throttle sticking or not throttle not smooth to return to neutral position ...????????
quick fix make shure throttle has a nice gap between throttle grip plastic housing that the red switch is on ....
2... when going on any journey or just or trip to the shops .
make shure you don't rush the start up procedure as found that can confuse the scooter sync start up procedure .
and what can happen is the normal neutral position is shifted a fraction .
but with this probblem what tends to happen is when relesing the throttle the regen kicks in slightley
and therefore no free wheeling at all ........
3.. so to resolve this simple make shure side stand is up. . a . flick red switch if not already done so on towards yourself
.. b . squeeze left break lever for aprox 1 to two seconds ( ready ) sign will show constantly.
then on the third second while the left lever is still squeezed . c . squeeze the right break lever for 1 second and the big ( GO ) sign will show
an there you have it . all in it takes aprox 4/5 seconds done correct..
hope this helps ..kev
