I just cleaned up the battery pack and re-taped all of the metal tops with insulating tape to protect it a bit better - so I will wait to see if it has 1, 2 or no Z-fuses...not sure what that will tell me but next time I am in the bottom area I will.
I am not sure about the Pro Dashboard as it has a round connector in the steering column and mine has a JST connector.
Does anyone know what type of connector the round one is? I could buy one from Digi-Key and replace mine to see if it is all I need to make the switch.
Anything besides the original firmware on the controller won't work with original/clone dashboard!! Because the information sent in the BUS wire are sent in a different way.tifosi wrote: ↑Wed Jan 08, 2020 6:11 pmI gave up trying to do an "upgrade" as even with a new cable and a new dashboard nothing worked. I think I would also need a new controller and I am not ready to do that just yet.
As it is right now I am able to ride the thing as needed. In general I don't feel any more pull to upgrade it.
What I am thinking about is building or finding a scooter that better fits me needs.
I would like a lower stand-over height for one, better ability to go up steep hills, lighter weight, and less touchy braking.
I might have to build my own unit - I don't need high speed, or long rang,e so I could build a scooter with a high current battery that is a third the size of the current battery and be fine. I think using some high drain Samsung Li-Ion cells would provide more oomph up a hill...
Even 10 cells would be perfect for my needs. Then I could figure out sticking them in the steering column and I wouldn't need the space under the standing deck which would help me lower that down.
