So, I've got an XM-3500Li on order (probably the end of September shipment, but we'll have to see) and I think we're all pretty well aware of the speedo (and odometer as well) issues with pretty much all of the scoot models. So I've been thinking that maybe I should start a thread on mods so we can bang out heads together to find ways to get these closer to real world numbers.
For example, I think some folks here have mentioned putting some of the readily available bicycle speed/odos on their scoots. Any tips on installation and how those are working out? Do they seems to be getting closer to the real world values when compared to GPS or Radar gun speeds?
How about being able to open up the casing and gluing in a printout of a better calibrated readout over the one that's in there? Is that even possible?
Is there a tire size that would fix the issue (like I've read about being done on the XM2000s) and what would the problems be with changing out one of the tires(and presumably having to deal with different sizes), or would it be better or even possible to put the same size tires on both wheels?
Or is there a way to modify the current speedo/odo to better calibrate it?
Of course if folks could provide pics of their mods (and installation pics, too!) I think that would be a lot of help. So if folks have some more ideas or actual mods they be willing to share, please do let us know!
