all. been having slight consern's as been having slight noise from front of scooter .
But really put it down to scooter normal or loose plastic .
As from previus blogs .and handle bar wobble was normal ??.
having slight noise from front of scooter .
Sounded like plastic mud guard was little loose so check all around mud guard and thought some thing was caught .
nothing seems loose so. after another few months hering this sound on and off
Again. do the same again so thought the front wheel calliper was loose .

hi all just been wondering. about the temperature display .
on the vectrix and wondering if we could devise something that would keep the temperature display showing all the time ??
as don't really know why it is not as the more info the better in my books.
as the cost of the replacment batteries are so so expencive that i don't know why it hasn't been thought of before..??????????????????????
and we could keep a constant eye on whats going on . as i don't really like to stop regularly to check this .

hi all be wondering if we are to be trully eco guys the me must look out side the box...
we been wondering about my beloved vectrix at the end of the charge cycle i/e when scooter is fully charged.
i find that i have to open the front door i let pressures heat out and for unpluging it in wasted energy when i go out ..
as to comming in as well .. well i have had few plug in timers but these dont last as little on the cheap side and really fiddley too..

hi all i read some blogs some wile ago to do with sticking regen breaks or throttle sticking open a little .
well 1st probblem is the rubber grips they are a little on the rubbery side but for me not too much of a probblem
if i know about it in the first place well what tends to happen is while gripping the throttle the mushroom side inner you tend to squeeze
this and and there for it been very rubbery it tends to move inwards 2 to 8 millimeters is

I have become, on Friday the 17th, april 2009, a Vectrix owner, and I'll post my findings about it here.
For me this purchase was a bit of a gamble, because Vectrix the company, at this time, has some financial issues, and we cannot be certain that it will survive the crisis, thus leaving us, owners without warranty.
