I'm trying to fix up an XM-3100 so a friend's son can use it to get to college and back this coming semester. The scoot was apparently purchased by my buddy's neighbor, who never actually used it, and given to him a year or so later. As far as I know, it's never been ridden at all. All the original plastic covering the lights is still there, baked on from a year in the sun.
I charged it up, which seems to have gone fine, although I know I won't be able to tell how well the batteries will hold a charge until I get it running.
Initially, I wasn't seeing 12V power then the key was on, so I replaced the DC-DC regulator. That sorted out the lights and such, but I'm still not able to make it go.
The brake safety switches are a corroded mess, so I disconnected them and the kickstand safety switch for the time being. I tried the wires from the brake & kickstand safety switches jumpered and open to try to bypass them, but no joy. Anyone know which will allow me to bypass them temporarily? I'll be fixing and reconnecting them when it's going - don't want to kill my buddy's son!
Can anyone advice me as to the next troubleshooting steps? I've never worked on an EV before, so I'm fumbling in the dark here...
On the plus side, the brakes work great, tires & suspension are in fine condition, and I've gone through and made sure everything is attached to the bike properly, which it most certainly was not when I first got it.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
