Hi all. Up until Tuesday I have had ZERO issues with my scooter. However, now I seem to have a major one. I have 1085 miles on it since I received it in late September '08. So here is the deal.
On my way to work on a wet morning, like many others that I have ridden in, as I tried to take off from a stop light all power failed when I twisted the throttle to go. By "All Power" I mean lights, blinkers, beeper, everything. I pulled the battery and disconnected it for about 30 seconds and then reconnected it. All the power came back. However after a quick U-turn and another stop and look, it did it again. Yesterday morning, a dry morning with a full charge, I rode it for about a mile and when I went to take off from another stop light, it did it again. Once again I did the disconnect, reset, reconnect method and rode it home just fine. It still had full power when I parked it.
So just a few minutes ago, I did a quick test run. After a nice cruise through the neighborhood and one stop sign without any problems, I stopped at a stop light and lo and behold, again. So I did the disconnect, reset, reconnect routine again and when I twisted the throttle twice in quick succession it cut out again.
After careful review of my actions prior to any of this, the only thing that stands out as different is that sometime during my 4 day work rotation, the garage circuit that my charger is attached to tripped the GFI. So the scooter didn't actually charge for at least one night and possibly two. I totally missed that the charger wasn't working the first night. Monday evening was when I caught on that the GFI was tripped. This eventually created what I thought was a Low Voltage Cutoff situation. However after yesterday on a full charge and then todays episode I am a little baffled. It seems that somehow the throttle twist is giving mixed messages to the circuitry. So I guess I will have to start digging around and see what I can see. But I wanted to post first and fish for some others informative comments.
Thanks in advance for any and all help. Lovin the V forums. Scott.
