I was riding it in the rain and it shorted out or something. I don't know. I was riding like normal, then suddenly I lost throttle, the display flickered out, and then, nothing. The scooter was nearly fully charged when I left, I can only assume the unit is toast. It happened two hours ago and it's still dead.
Right now I guess I'm in a state of shock. As a 20 year old blue collar worker, this was my trusted transportation and a huge monetary investment. I'm outside of the six month warranty period, so I figure I'm just kind of, well, effed, outside of paying a hefty fine to some kind of local Felix Fix-It.
If I had to make a guess as to the problem, I'd hope it was the wiring on the scooter, which has a fairly ass-tastic build quality to it. Ever since I removed the cloth shielding from the wires to remove the handlebars and fix the busted button lock (as per the manual's instructions), the wires have been deteriorating at a very alarming pace. The rubber shielding is very brittle and has cracked to the wire in more places than I have fingers. I am praying to the RNG that it's just a broken wire and not a toasted battery or controller.
