Introduction: How to Take Apart an Electric Scooter for Electric Parts.

Picture of How to Take Apart an Electric Scooter for Electric Parts.

Theis is the way I take apart a second-hand stand-on electric scooter for parts need for building a electric mountainboard.
(Idea comes from >> https://www.instructables.com/id/Electric-Mountain-Board/ )
The reason I bought a second hand one is because the parts I need are actually more expensive to buy seperately than buying a second hand scooter.......
(new parts=$320,scooter=$220.....)
Otherwise I wouldn't want to take apart this beauty.....

Step 1: Tools We Need.

Enable to keep every parts in order so I can easily rebuild the electric parts on my mountainboard, I used few plastic bags and colour stickers to mark every parts.

Step 2: Take a Last Look on the Poor Guy...

Before taking scooter apart, carefully take a look on how things hold together. If need, take notes or picture.

Step 3: Starts Taking Apart the Scooter.(Batteries)

Motor is easier to take off than controller since it has only one cable.

After taking off everyhting I need, I put all the small parts in plastic bags and lable them. At last, put everyhting into a plastic box for easy organize.

This is my first instructable, which serve as a practice for me. I will post the instructable for building my version of electric mountain.

Thats give credic for the guy who come out the idea of electric mountainboard>>

I will use another method to mount the motor and controller directelly on to the axe so the motor will always in-line with the wheel sprocket. But also will not hurt the mountainboard. (means no welding, screwing, or superglueing on the board.)

Thanks for watching.

What kinds of things can you do with the controllers? i have two 36V scooters for parts, but i know very little about the controllers...

How many volts is it? I might have a use for those controllers...

Most scooters of this type use two 12V gel-cells in series, i.e., 24V.
