I've read with great interest other topics about this scooter. I'm from the UK and needed something to get me from work and back (less than 2 miles total) and that looked completely inconspicuous as the law over here doesn't like electric scooters/bikes. In other words, if I see the fuzz coming in the opposite direction I should just kick push the scooter.
I work in the Ambulance service, and will be in uniform, so I'm hoping that it'd give me some kind of diplomatic immunity!
Hill climbing is pants, It's uphill all the way to work, but obviously downhill the way back, a little more Torque would be appreciated, but just after range and perhaps speed without any detrimental effect to the motors or wear on the rear wheel.
Does the 2000x contain the same controller board as the 2000xr? will the normal circuit board allow me to pump 18V into the motors without damage to either?
Is the case of changing the batteries to LiPo as simple as putting them in, charging them up and connecting them to the circuit board?
also, if anyone has the time, could they find the exact batteries that'd suit the motorboard (18V and as many Amp hours as possible) even better if you could find them on a .co.uk site!
one more, I heard somewhere about changing to a Dewalt Drill battery but requiring a BMS, just what the heck is one of those?!
yes... I'm a novice.
Thanks for taking the time to read this, I look forward to hearing from your better judgement!
