Im new here but Ive read alot of posts. Great info but had to stop reading for a little while
getting "burned out" lol. I just bought a new e-moto retro scooter. It would not have been my first choice because of size but paid less than 40% of list! (couldnt pass it up) plus it gets me to the next level in electric scooters. My other scooter (Schwinn) is what I call a "skeleton model" no headlight, tail, horn etc.
Anyways, my question is about the speed restriction. Ive read that there's a "chip" in the controller is what some people call it but others say its just a jumper wire? If so where is it and how do I remove it?
If Im reading correctly my controller is the same one thats in the Kasea and e-max scooters?
Secondly I read that the Zapino scooters you guys have a economy switch to go from low speed to high speed.
Is it possible for me to add this switch to my scooter? Would my controller draw alot more power by just leaving it in a full power state?
I plan on adding up to 4 more batteries (8 total 20ah each) in the storage area under the seat if possible but one thing at a time for now.
Finally the scooter law here in Arizona says is if it goes over 25 mph (mine goes 30 mph) or is above 1.5 hp (my c.o.o. says 1.9 hp which is low for 2000 watts) then it has to be registered as a motor driven cycle/ motorcycle not a moped. So this mod to remove the governed speed would not be a problem.
Thanks for any feedback!
