I am expecting delivery of my Zapino this week or next. It is snowing outside here in Longmont, Colorado and I will have very little opportunity to ride for the next 3-4
months. I know it sounds crazy to buy one now, but it was a unique situation.
I am looking for feedback from Owners of the Zapino. I read the report on MAX's Blog which is great information, including pictures.
I will be rewiring the scooter (seems like it will void the warranty, but must be done).
1st thing to do is verify the batteries to be GS SP27.
2nd thing is to see if the battery cables are addequate or need to be upgraded
3rd thing is to add the wiring for bank charging (5 Vector 2/4/6 chargers on the way)
4th thing to do is wire in the Paktrakr which is also on the way
5th thing to do is order and install a BATTEQ for 5 batteries. I plan on connecting via
the molex connector for bank charging but will have the switch USATRACY recommends on the ground wire to prevent sparks when dis/re-connecting BATTEQ.
I need a windshield for the debris thrown up by cars (here in Colorado it is a problem).
ZAP has a SOLAR panel option but no information on it. Anyone know anything about it?
I printed the owners manual from the ZAP site, but it does not show how to remove the
batteries. Anyone have documentation that has more info? How about a schematic of the electrical system?
I would lke to add the wiring for my Gerbings electric jacket, pants and gloves (increases the riding season in Colorado) Where to connect the harness?
Appreciate any real world experience/feedback.
