Re: Advice on using the Shi Shang Scooter in the rain

I wouldn't worry. I've ridden a YongKang Crown and then an XtremeB600 for about three years rain and shine in Maryland. The only weather I won't ride in is frozen snow.

If you felt handy, you could go through and use self-amalgamating tape to wrap the sensitive bits. There really isn't much waterproofing on these scoots, but rainwater doesn't conduct much electricity.

Just to be on the safe side, I'd inspect the various plugs for corrosion every couple of months. You might replace the power phase
connectors with grub screw terminals instead. They have to carry the heaviest current.
