    old member, now back in the saddle of EV again

    Trying to catch up on the latest news of what everyone has been up too. Industry and members alike.
    Lots to read wow!

    I had sold my old electric moto, then bought it back from the same guy. He never used it just let it sit.
    Now, trying to determine what needs fixing.replacing....
    One of the Valence XP batts... POOF.. Need to open it up and see if it can be repaired/replaced.
    Fork seals.. meh... messy, but not too much work.
    I swear he spilled soda inside of the controller. It smells like burnt Pepsi!
    No, I'm not going to do a taste test.
    We'll see what else he did under the tank(hood)

    Welcome back! Not for nothin' but I think he did you a favor crushing those old Valences. Check out the Leaf and Volt stuff available now via salvage, they're awesome, and a lot of people have written up info on them.

    Rock on!

    Thanks Ted,
    I've been reading a lot... maybe too much. My butt is numb!
    Oh, and fyi, it was coke, not pepsi.
    :P

    Soooo, Looks like one of the jumper cables of the series was loose and touched down on the frame of the bike. It burnt up the #2 cable
    and the terminal on the battery. I had to rebuild the cell cover. He obviously wasn't charging the batteries properly, or upon each use. They are so low voltage wise the BMS throws an error and will not open the charge circuit. Now I'll have to pull them all out and charge individually. PITA, but.. I do miss working on this bike!
    BTW Ted, I haven't found any more spilled soda or beverages anywhere under the tank.. I have however spilled a few bubbly bevvies on myself
