I was able to successfully convert to a Bird Zero motor on my M365 today and it was working great! I then flashed the firmware with CFW2.0 and went for a test ride down the street. Right around 21-22mph, the motor locked up and the scooter turned off. Now any time I try to accelerate at all, I get the same rough feeling and the scooter shutting down. All the connections still look good and this happens with any firmware. I even pulled the battery and plugged it back in, same result. Is the motor shot? Should I just go back to the original motor?
UPDATE: I let it cool down and charge all night and now when I try to ride it, it just uses the brakes instead of shutting down. I swapped the blue and brown cables, same result. It smells like the BMS board is toast, so I may need to replace that. Has anyone else fried their BMS?
UPDATE #2: It was the board next to the battery, is that the controller? Swapped it out and now all is good. Playing around with custom firmware, just not the CFW2.0 as that seems to have overheated that board.
