I attempted to do this with a Jump scooter and the rear brake lights just flashed and flashed, I liked that the jump scooter had a better front tire, but that is a pain in the butt to swap, but I did jack my extended battery off of the jump I acquired and put it on my bird

We have figured out how to "paint" our scooters:

We took black vinyl and covered the shaft and my wife used her vinyl cutting machine to add designs to hers. I do not know what I want to put on mine yet.

We also acquired some jump scooters at auction and took their additional battery and mounted it so now we have a 27 mile range!

Yeah, so once you have the jump base simple take the bird post and attach it to the jump base... easy.

Looks awesome!! Im not sure if to remove the BIRD or not. I feel like its less likely to be stolen if left outside with a BIRD logo.

Any more guiding tips on your Bird Zero wheel conversions? Wheel conversion with stock firmware makes a difference or only with custom firmware?

My fear with custom firmware is reading that range is lost and when returning to stock, the range is still lost. I know there is parts out there but what do you recommend?

Even without the custom software you will feel vast difference in acceleration and power delivery. Now the zero motor is much more efficient than stock one so with some range that you would normally lose with custom firmware and stock motor, you would make it back up using zero one. To be honest i think not much change in range from completely stock one.
