BE-500 Baja Motorsports E-Bike

I just bought a Baja Motorsports BE-500 E-Bike (Scooter) from Best Buy. I have 145 miles on it and so far it's been BRILL! Just looking to meet and chat with other BE-500 owners so I can be more aware of how to care for my fun new ride. I have only had a small charger issue so far, but what do you expect for a $900.00 scooter? I would welcome any advice on up-keep, care, and any problems I may encounter down the line. Thanks a ton!

Crappy Japanese commuter bicycle

Japanese commuter bikes always have a front basket. This was a great place to install all the wiring, right on top of the powered wheel, which kept the wires short and neat.
The original wheel was 27" and the new wheel is 26", so I had an extra 30mm of space after lowering the brake and fender to match the new wheel size.
I also artificially raised the basket about 30mm, and this clearance was perfect to slide in a 75mm thick LiFePo4 battery.

Sparky One

This bike is the equivalent of a 1980 Vanagon Camper - underpowered, overweight, low performance, but with a mysterious cachet that draws a cult-like following. It looks like an old Honda 90, with about half of the gumption of my childhood friend's Honda 50 moped, and can barely get me back up the hill to my house in Seattle with a rented DVD for payload. But my daughter and wife think it's the cutest thing in the world, with its fire-engine-red plastic stylings, and my daughter wants to ride it instead of taking the bus,so I guess it's good for something.

Internal hub 24V
