I still can't figure this damn thing out!!!

It is making me nuts. I've put everything back together and taken photos of every connection and everything I can think of. I'm calling the distributor for tech support tomorrow.

I've talked to them twice, but they been confused both times (I don't speak southern drawl and they don't speak Chicago) but seriously what the guy has been describing to me on the phone is not what I see, so I'm thinking the photos will be a big help when I talk to him next???

It might be easier to bring the scooter to you!

Lots of the confusion comes from the fact that the guy I've been talking to is not describing anything that I see. Honestly he talks about things that I honestly do not see anywhere. I'm now of the firm opinion that I am looking at one style of scooter while he is looking at something completely different???

This should be simple. There are not that many wires. Access is a problem because of all the plastic body panels and I do not want to take them off because they look flimsy. But taking out the seat opens up the entire top of the engine and all the wiring connectors are right under the seat.

I'm hoping tomorrow that he will look at the CORRECT scooter?!?

No, I didn't get the meter yet. (long story, not worth going into, but let's just say I spent several days at home on pain killers) And NO DAVE, I WON'T SHARE!!!

Hope you did not forget about starter motor engaging as soon as you pull back on the brake lever and took out the garage door or put a big ding in the Avanti!!!!!

Heh...that reminds me of using the starter motor to pull a non-functioning car into the garage. Put it in first gear, and crank the starter. They sure don't build 'em like that anymore.
