I received my XB500 scooter today...and unfortunately after I have purchased the bike, I've read tons of horror stories...I can only hope that after taking 5 hours to assemble, this thing actually works and doesn't kill me in the process.
The only thing I can't seem to get accomplished is charging the battery. (God only knows if it will hold a charge or messed up some other way)
Here's what's happening....if I try to charge the batteries by plugging the charger into the outlet that is just below the seat, the green LED light on the charger turns on immediately, everything on the bike works immediately, but the battery is not charging this way. I unplug the bike and it's dead as a doornail.
I plug the charger directly into the battery, and it won't hold a charge and it's completely dead.
There are two fuses that came with the bike, one is a glass fuse and the other one is a green two prong fuse. Where these fuses go, I don't have a clue, nor does it mention in the owners manual that you need to install them in order for the bike to operate.
Are these fuses necessary for the bike to hold a charge? If so, where are they on the bike?
