Henry Carver - X-Treme XM5000Li and Yamaha Majesty

Majesty  (Left) and XM5000Li (Right)

I ride the XM5000Li (all electric) scooter to commute and anywhere that's under 15 miles. I ride the Majesty for fun and distances greater than 15 miles. :-)


The original reason for purchasing a scooter (August 2008) was to save gas and reduce emissions. It was an X-Treme XM3500Li. The XM3500Li has a maximum speed of approximately 43 MPH. I have since upgraded to the XM5000Li (2009) which has a maximum speed of approximately 58 MPH. (Both speeds are on level roads.) The maximum distance on a charge that I've ridden is approximately 45 miles.

The longest trip on the Majesty was approximately 1500 miles (Orlando Florida and back.) I saw a video on YouTube that shows the Majesty going over 100 MPH. I am able to go the speed limit on the interstate with no issues.

Battery Tender Junior in package

A battery tender like the Battery Tender Jr. can make all the difference in whether your scooter will start right up each spring, after being stored for months.

Just about every scooter owner needs to have a battery tender, sometimes called a trickle charger. Unless you are lucky enough to live in a climate where you can ride all year long, chances are your scooter will be put on ice, figuratively-speaking, for at least a couple months every winter.

One of the key steps in winterizing a scooter is to protect your battery from draining during its "rest" period. This can – and will – happen if you leave your battery sitting untended in your cold scooter over the winter, even if it's in a garage or shed.

Attention!

ATTENTION! I have had to delete the Scooter Forum for this site, unfortunately. Despite my best efforts, I could not adequately prevent daily attacks by hackers and spammers. Even though most of their posts did not go public, they still cluttered up my website host's server space, jeopardizing my account. I appreciate everyone's contributions over the past few years and I apologize for having to do this.

Wondering why your scooter question never got posted?

Chances are, there is a good reason. Did you...

If you "checked yes" on any of the points above, then I've deleted your post. Sorry, but I have standards. Feel free to re-submit, following the instructions I have everywhere on the site.

Also... all submissions have to be reviewed by me, and I am currently backlogged. Comments go live without approval, but still take 30 to 60 minutes to show up, so don't repost them, please.
