  • My Newest Ped - Little different

    So first I need help with what oil to mix for this thing and then I need to know where to pour the mix.

    Picked this up today used. Got a fairly decent deal I think. This evening I was looking it over and decided that it could absolutely not be stock (although the folding bars do have a nice appeal for some cases). Oddly enough I actually got to use it today when I was on a large facility and couldnt find parking near where I needed to be. I just pulled the ESR out of the car and took off down the road. That was the only time I rolled stock.

    This is the first time I have ever ridden an electric and I am completely ecstatic about how awesome these are. I definitely see why folks get these. The whole experience has been really positive up to this point.

    I will be coming back and working to figure out these electric scooters because the volts, amperage, controllers, distances and everything else is completely foreign to me at this point but that makes for a very exciting piece.

    I have already ordered the billet deck from Daves along with the plastic spacer to help match the rest a little better. Also had to get the slakinator. I have of course already considered the torkinator but dont think I'm ready to dish that coin just yet. I am also contemplating the go cruise for this booger but may wait to see if it hits the deal of the week soon.

    List goes like this:

    -ESR750ex candy red
    -Single side fork - I think its gonna stay for this scooter
    -DDM pole with red clamps
    -DDM HD FTG
    -ADA bars
    -Revilo bar pad cover
    -Red Engine Trix clamp on brake lever
    -Avid BB5 with 160 caliper
    -ADA billets ano'd red
    -Skopod QCH rear
    -Skopod Front MTB brake adapter ano'd black
    -DDM black magic rear sprocket 76t
    -DS frame clamp (#18) ano'd black

          that is one slick ESR! i love the pole, looks amazing with those rims!

          also i was thinking leave the go-cruise off, use the rear wheel as a generator to regenerate some electricity when coasting!

            Thanks,

            This is where I am lost in space with these things. Do the motors on the ESRs send power back to the batteries when coasting?

                If I understand what I have read correctly, you need a controller capable of regen. (The stock goped controller doesn't have this capability if I'm not mistaken.) If you were to upgrade batteries, say when and if you upgrade to a torkinator, replacing the controller with something else wouldn't be too far out of your way. (trick is getting everything in that pan.)

                I noticed you mention that you got a billet deck for it? (I'd like to see it, didn't know one was made for esr's.)

                Cool scoot, there was an esr with dead batteries for 75 bucks here on Craigslist a few months ago. Wished I scooped that one up.

                  Edit*

                  Nevermind, I found the deck.

                  Side note #2
                  DDM has the esr rear brake kits in stock if you don't already have one.

                      You got yourself a cool looking and well appointed scooter They are quiet and stealthy and a pure JOY to ride.

                      I know I sure do love mine I have over 1200 miles of smiles on my 32Ah Hoverboard. The only drawback for the ESR ex is, even with new and fully charged batteries you can burn through a charge in 30 minutes or less We took my ESR with us to an RV park in San Diego a while back and we could ride around for 25-30 minutes, and then have to charge for 4 hours. Ride for 25-30 minutes and then charge for 4 hours.

                      The Lithium powered Hoverboard is another story I could go for 16-18 miles in TURBO @ 22-23 MPH, and almost 30 miles in Econo @ 15-16 MPH when new I can even pull a trailer full of groceries. But like the lead acid ex, ALL batteries wear out over time and charging cycles. At least the ex batteries are fairly inexpensive compared to the $500 a piece Lithium batteries. And the rear brake kit is great once you get it properly adjusted.

                            Lots of Cash!

                            Some people have made their own Lipo battery packs with 'some' success, and some failures, which then often need some sort of battery managment system and different chargers. And from what I have read they can be a real pain and drawn out process to charge. Some have even added different off-brand controlers to up the voltage for short term speed. But you really have to KNOW what you are doing and know a lot about the intricacies of electronics to tackle such a job, and it can still be quite costly.

                            Or.....$3459.75 for aeasy peasy 32Ah 4 Lithium battery ESR and $3622.50 for a Hoverboard, and believe me the extra $163 for front and rear suspension is well worth the price. Or...you could opt for the top of the line PPV @ a heafty $4667.75. And GoPed even includes the entire scooter at these prices But I cannot vouch for the lead time if you order from GoPed now days.
