Just wondering about something....other xb600 owners might know.
Recently I had to replace a broken key switch on my xb600 and since I was working on something on the scoot decided to go ahead and check the battery connections and make sure they were tight. Recalled someone else saying often they found them loose...and since I've had my scoot for a couple of years now and never even opened the battery box...thought I would. Sure enough a few of the screws holding the cables to the batts were a bit loose...not real loose...but needed to be tightened. Course when I went to tighten a couple of them stripped. I replaced them with a couple of screws I had...that were a bit longer so I had to use a washer for spacers. The replaced screws worked fine but sat just a bit higher up but not enough to get in the way of the cover. I also noticed every cable end had a black rubber insulator that obviously was intended to go over the cable connection. But every single one was slid back on the cable and not sitting covering the connections. Don't know why they would have put these on anyway since the box is plastic...but nonetheless I slid them forward as best I could over the connection. They don't fit well over the connections either. But anyway, when I put the lid back on the box it doesn't seem to fit as flat on it as it did before. I'm wondering if they had those black boots slid back and out of the way to let the top sit flatter on the battery box? The replaced screws aren't holding the top higher...so it has to be those boots. Has anyone experienced this? It's no big deal the top still sits fairly flat on the box and basically smooth with the scooter when installed but with a slight rise in the middle. So I just wondered...
Also, just a note here on something entirely different I just noticed today surfing around on the net and looking electric scoot stuff. I notice SEARS online store now sells all the XB scoots from xtreme...or most of them including the xb600! Wow that's a good sign that maybe "electrics" are making it to the mainstream here in the USA!
