thanks all for past help with my battery issues. Today I took off for work after a big rainstorm last night, and the scooter, despite being in Power mode, performed like it was in Economy mode, except once in a while it would surge forward and perform normally for about 30 seconds, then drop back to about 25 MPH. At first, I thought my brushes must be getting dirty and need cleaning (I have just under 800 miles), but then I noticed that it was behaving EXACTLY like it was in economy mode, then when it surged forward, behaving 100% normally for 30 seconds to a minute, then dropping back again. I tried switching it to economy mode, and it ran perfectly with no surging at all.
Is it possible that there is a short in the power/economy switch or something, or does this sound like dirty brushes to those of you who have been through cleaning the brushes a few times?
