Re: SCHWINN STEALTH 1000 ELECTRIC SCOOTER

I have a Stealth 1000 bought in Sept '07 that has been a jewel. I am a fulltime RVer with somewhat limited mobility and it has been great for getting around in campgrounds, at rallies, and "walking" the dog. Now my balance is getting worse and I need to sell it and get something with more stability.

About a year ago I decided that I didn't want to hook up the charger outside the motorhome in the rain, so I brought the charger and battery pack inside and tried to fit the two together to charge. Well, you know what happened! I nearly burned off a finger and roasted one of the prongs on the plug. I took it to Alien Scooters in Austin, TX, and they "repaired" the plug with a bit of solder and replaced the connection on the battery.

That was fine until now, but now I can't get a current through the wiring to charge the batteries, which are still good. I was told by a friend who looked at the connections that I would need to replace both the plug and the little outlet on the scooter, and also the connector on the battery pack. I don't have time to order these parts and get them installed before I leave, so if any of you are near Livingston, TX, where I am until the end of this week, or in the following places where I will be going in the next few weeks, and would like to look at or make an offer on it, let me know and we can set up a time and place. Future locations: Sherman, TX; Norman, OK; Kansas City, MO. I do have it advertised here, and if I do happen to sell it I will post again to let you know.

Well for me with the stealth 1000, I've had some problems with batteries, but they were late onset. But $144 and a new sottering tool later, I had a running scooter again.

Re: SCHWINN STEALTH 1000 ELECTRIC SCOOTER

I don't have a Schwinn.. but i've had such a hard time with tis forum, I thought to try and find a recent post, to get a response.. ..I wish this forum wasn't so fragmented, so that I could just post in a "general" forum.. I have a chinese electric scooter/bike , but damned if I can find an appropriate forum to place my query in..
Mine suffered damage to the plastic fairing, when it got out of control because the speed control "stuck.. basically it ran into a concrete pillar"..
If you (or anyone else) knows the correct sub-forum to place this, I'd be grateful!

Re: SCHWINN STEALTH 1000 ELECTRIC SCOOTER

Has anyone one done the shunt mod to the schwinn stealth? I have a 2007 I think... I was wondering what to expect if I did do this mod also. I think it makes the power come on a lot faster correct? Is there any big cons to this?

Re: SCHWINN STEALTH 1000 ELECTRIC SCOOTER

I've got a recently acquired 2007 as well. It needed batteries and a seat post. Now that I have ridden it 4 or 5 times it started making this noise in the rear, then locked up. Freaking pinion gear cut right into the motor shaft is fubar, gears are too. So it's 250 for a new motor and gears? I may cut my losses instead. possibly I'll try to do something with this motor shaft, convert it to chain drive. Not likely to be possible tho.
Has anyone converted one of these back to a chain drive setup? I might try it.

I am looking for a new rear axle for my Stealth 1000. Anyone who may have one please PM me. Also has anyone tried the 48volt LiFePo battery in the stealth?
