It would seem I'm about 3 years late to catch the electric moped/scooter boat as most of you early odopters started this a few years ago... but I bought one anyway. Have a few motorcycles and gas mopeds in the garage to ease my gas bills in the summer, but the electric scoot route seemed intresting and another way to raise a middle finger to the oil companies.
Found a 'new old stock' xm3k. I've read probably every thread here in the past few months. So far I've:
-stripped the xm down
-tested all batteries on my CBAIII at the 20hr rate 6.45amps(4 tested good over 32ah, 1 was dieing at 2ah)
-sent xtreme my graphs from the CBA, they promptly sent me a new battery, the second battery doesn't test as well as the good 4, I"m hoping it improves with a few cycles.
-first set of invoice/mco from xtreme had the wrong VIN, they sent new one
-XM is now insured, and plated in MN
-wired and installed paktrakr
-wired for bank charging
-made a bank charger with 5 Schumacher SC600's
-went for a couple short rides the last few nights to condition the new battery
Impressions so far... this might just be fun :)
