Other things you'll need to have in general to do this are:
Once you get a donor scooter, unscrew the torx screws underneath the top sticker/decal in the console between the handlebars. locate and unscrew the GPS/cellular dashboard. remove/destroy the SIM card in the board. Unplug the wire harness connection between that board and the cable that runs down through a black epoxy'd hole to the neck tube of the scooter. It should be like 10-12 wires in a bundle. Unplug the Li-Po battery on the board. you can toss that board away and recycle the Li-Po battery (it's pretty big capacity-- use it in a later project!). Then, unplug the cables with special orange/blue male/female connections and save those for soldering later-- as shown in samzone's video. That's all you'll need to prep the top of the scooter. Save all the screws and try to remember where they all came from so you can close everything back together at the end.

- Soldering tools-- soldering iron, solder, wire strippers (or a sharp knife and good hands), you could get away with wire nuts/lever nuts for electrical connections that don't run a lot of current thru them (sensor wires, but DEFINITELY solder the two battery and three motor wires)
For the bottom of the scooter, there are around 10 torx security screws on the bottom lip that runs around the deck of the scooter, oriented to screw up (the heads to unscrew are facing down). Unscrew all of those, being careful to also unscrew the ones near the kickstand. Then carefully lift the deck up off the bottom of the scooter, and disconnect the orange connection cable to the brake light. Then, you have full access to the bottom of the scooter to replace the motor controller. At that point, you'll be at where samzone's video begins, and you'll need to do the soldering/connecting to the proper places as samzone shows so elegantly in his video.
If i missed anything @samzone let us know!
thanks for the reply

CORRECT!SiameseMoms wrote: ↑Thu Jul 11, 2019 8:27 pmI just want to make sure I am completely understanding this, i have never done electrical work before, and i have never modified something like a scooter, that is why i am asking these questions.
If i have this same model of scooter, the only thing i have to do is change the controller as sam shows in the video and it will be working 100% ???
I do not have to replace any other pieces or do any software updates or "flashing" correct?
