Today am remembering all those who gave their lives for this country. I am also remembering all those vets who took their own lives after servicing our country. Those vets who upon returning didn't get the physical and/or mental health care they needed to help them overcome the demons they retuned home with. Some died drinking themselves to death some overdosed and some ended their own lives because living was too painful. I don't judge them since I don't know what was going on in their heads. It just saddens me when I think our country asked or accepted their service but on them returning home couldn't help them. May they all RIP.
Anyone have any idea on how to slow down the aging of the panels on these Chinese scooters? The panels on mine are drying out and seem to get more brittle over time causing hair line cracks. I am using fiberglass to patch them and they seem more stable then before.
2 more items to fix and it's either ride it in place of my car or sell like my wife keeps begging to. She feels it's not safe on Florida roads. She was driving 4 miles to work one way for 10 years work moved 5 months ago and her drive it 12 miles one way. She is now seeing more of the ahole drivers South Florida has to offer.
Got it on used a bolt sunk in epoxy for the front then used a bolt and washer to hold it in place, The back one I used what was left of the post and epoxy it. Best part is the sucker fires up on first touch of the start button. A few more minor things to get done like wind screen and it will be on the road.
Two magnets face to face epoxyed one to plastic and one to frame for each tab might hold, but would have to in perfect alignment and strong ones. But if you loose the panel in traffic it will be gone gone gone!
I would not fall off it is attached to the running board I can't separate without breaking it. I think I will try the strongest magnets I can find that will fit.
I have Ice Bear Magnum. one panel all the connections to the frame have broken off. I Emailed Jim at Rapid Repair and it looks like I can't get a new panel. The panel had a 2 1" pieces that fit into a rubber gasket on a panel attached to the frame. I am thinking of using an earth magnet mourned to the frame then epoxying something to the panel so the magnet will hold it tight. Wondering if I use meal power in the epoxy would the magnets pull it in? Any thoughts?
Proud owner of an Ice Bear 2011 Magnum. It has been sitting torn apart in my garage for 2+yrs. Had a problem with the lights working. Finally got them to work not sure what I did but they work. Got it started on Monday much to my surprise took it around the block and it ran well. Trying to decide if I should sell or keep it. Peak riding season i upon us here in South Florida so I might just keep it for a while longer.
The headlights will not go on High beam pass will go on when switch is pressed Pull the bulbs ( pain in the butt) I tried with 12 volts and they lit up. Checked the handlebar switch and it doesn't look corroded. Anyone have issues with headlights?
I am selling it because I need money to pay for a few family trips I have to take. Trying to set an asking price. It is a 2011 and the only real change from when I got it are new rear tires and a new front tire. I did paint a few panels red but I don't feel it adds any real value.
I am thinking about asking $3,300. Too low too high? It has less than 500 mile on it. I know I know I have spent more hours working on it than riding it but it did bring me enjoyment. Thanks
