Well, I did tell one Zero owner about it and he was shocked this forum even existed.Not sure.. I just think people do not know about it.
I mentioned this forum in the electric motorcycle forum and I got this reply, referring to THIS forum:Not sure.. I just think people do not know about it.
There are many Zero riders in other forums, especially the electric motorcycle forum. Many do not even know that this forum exists.I think this forum is and will be dead due to lack of riders to contribute, just not enough zeros out there to show on the radar.
I have owned two Zeros a 2017 SR and a 2017 DS. Both have side cases and a travel trunk and crash bars are available from Zero, so I have no idea what you're even talking about. And service has been fine as well. I had my 2017 DS 6.5 battery replaced under warranty and got a 7.2 KWH for free.after owning a Zero Sr for 4 months, I can guess that the reason this forum is dead is because people are ashamed of owning such a poorly supported bike, (and not such a great piece of equipment either) sure it accelerates kinda fast, So docrotch rockets and they have manufacturers support, bujt the turn raduius is horroble, it is extremely top heavy and steering around curves is much harder than iit should be, belt noise makes it louder than my burgman. no availability of accesssories is a pain. I had tgo have a crash bar manufactured from scratch, and there is still no luggage/storage available and no support from the dealers/manufacturers. All in all I would sell it for half price just to be rid of the damg thing
Well, I have also heard several such stories, even here in Reno but not with the current shop. I purchased my Zero DS from a different shop where they obviously didn't have a clue how to work on them, caused some big complaints and they were no longer allowed to handle Zeros.am glad you have had good success ( if you consider an early battery failure a success) with your bikes, soo many so fast, and you , unlike I, have a dealership you can work with. my nearest dealership is 52 miles away and I cannot go into details because we are currently in litigation about some things, So I Asked California for help, they referred me to a dealership over 200 miles away, that dealership said they couldn't help and calif was not giving them support to answer my QUESTIONS, much less supplying parts. Again . congratulations on a great dealership and may you enjoy all your bikes. IF I ever get mine on the road again, I might enjoy it also. Despite the ridiculously small turn ratio, excessive top heaviness, and whining noises, bad braking, and inability to lift it to rotate tires to check them for cuts, bulges, etcetc like should be done with tires,
Been to Reno a couple times, for a Florida boy, I love the drier climate and the heat isn't really an issue. Lack of alligators and pythons is another big plus.
I had no problem at all replacing the front wheel ABS sensor. Was an easy job.That sensor and it's part number and removal and installation procedure are my current problem! I have a bearing failure in the front wheel, but cannot access the bearing because the sensor is in the way and I have heard it is fragile if removed incorrectly. I wanted a replacement on hand if i broke it while changing the bearing. Would you please share some knowledge on it? Thanks in advance
thanks, sorry I mislead you , the exciter ring the part that goes around with the wheel .rotor , or whatever its called inside the hub, in front of the bearing is what I need, any ideas?I had no problem at all replacing the front wheel ABS sensor. Was an easy job.
My SR ABS light was on all the time while riding. So I checked the resistance of the rear ABS sensor and it was 50K ohm. I compared that to the front ABS sensor and it was infinite resistance showing it was open . IIRC, the leads to both sensors are behind the headlight assembly at connectors.
This is my 2017SR front wheel ABS wheel sensor. Part number ZM45-07496 at AF1 racing. $35.38 is the price.
