. I doubt if your scooter has the wiring/components necessary to use the motor as a generator to charge the battery. It should be possible to modify the scooter to charge the battery, but probably not practical. See "regenerative braking".

it would charge if you went forward while the controller was hooked up in reverse, with a diode to prevent the motor from spinning in reverse. while it's 'off' it would do nothing.
