Howdy all, I recently acquired a 2009 Glory 150. Its in need of a little TLC which me and my local scooter shop are giving it. But I have a few questions I'm hoping you all can help me with:
1. I've noticed that after I get her warmed up and have been out for a bit, that the error light starts flashing. I know that my Jetmax also a CFMOTO does the same if it has a problem. I can't seem to find an owners manual anywhere to tell me what the flash codes are. I have the maintenance manual but the codes aren't in there that I can find. Can I assume that both bikes use the same codes or would that be a mistake? I have the owners manual for the Jetmax that has the codes in it.
2. Probably has to do with question 1 but after riding for a while and coming to a stop and waiting for a light. The RPMs will drop and raise eventually to the point where it stalls. It has always fired right back up and seems fine. Any ideas where I should poke around to figure this out. This bike has the computer and fuel injection so no carb to play with.
3. I've noticed in the maintenance manual and under the seat 3 aux relays. Can these be used to wire up a phone charger or should I go straight to the battery?
I got this bike mainly to teach my son and sister in law how to ride so last question is not a big concern but the other 2 will bug me. They both want to take the motorcycle safety school here in town but neither can drive a manual and its a bring your own scooter school. They are probably gonna do it next year but I want the bike in good shape for class and when out on the road with me.
The bike is a CFMOTO Glory 150, fuel injected, water cooled with a little over 4700 miles on it.
We own 2 Glory 150 EFI scoots and love them! We've put 9000 miles on one of them and it's still going strong! The other we just got last year, used, when our dealer got it back in a trade-in. That one only has 500 miles on it. We store them at our dealer in the winter and he takes wonderful care of them, making sure they are in top running condition each spring. As far as the manual, ours says "Owner's Manual" on the front along with the numbers of 4 scooters. Ours has the failure indicator for the various light flashes, on pages 11 and 12. One time when I noticed and counted the flashes, I looked it up and it said, "short circuit of fan relay to battery positive terminal". Well, it turns out that it was also an indicator that flashes to say it's due for an oil change. Go figure?! It will do that whether or not we have changed it already because it is set to flash when we reach a certain number of miles. Our dealer alerted us to that oddity and we turned it off by pushing on both clock-setting-buttons simultaneously. Your dealer should be able to tell you if your JetMax failure indicators in the manual are the same for the Glory. It would make sense for them to be the same, wouldn't it? One thing we did on our first Glory and likely will on the one we purchased last year, is to change the original battery out for one that is better quality. They come with a pretty cheap one and it caused ours to have some frustrating starts.
Nice to know at least one other person rides this scoot. I'm hoping to hold off on the battery til next spring. Haven't had any trouble starting yet. Had to get a new back tire and back brakes to pass inspection here in NY. Set me back about $250 for parts and labor with the inspection.
Emailed CF Moto and they set me an owners manual. I forwarded a copy to the board admin and it should hopefully be up soon in the help section. I browsed through and am thinking the trouble codes are different. Will have to watch the light and remember codes.
Woodstock do your scoots have a canister under the seat? I talked to the scooter shop that originally sold the scoot and they said it has something to do with emissions. Was just wondering if yours had it because I would really like to have that space back. Even with the top case I'd like more storage. My top case barely hold my helmet so where do I put my jacket?
Forgot to post that I decided to wire the phone charger to the battery with a fuse. Took longer to take the plastics off than wire it up because CF Moto decided to put the battery behind the seat in front off the brake light.
Wow, I just got back to this post!!! My scoot now has almost 11,000 miles on it now! So sorry for not responding sooner! Wish there was a way to get updates on these posts, in my email notices. Anyway...... We still have the emissions canister under the seat in one and the other has had it removed. Supposedly it's illegal to remove it, at least in most states, but the used one we bought last, had it already taken out. Don't know that it changed the performance even though some people feel it makes a positive change. Since mine is the one with the canister still intact, I put my jacket in the topcase and carry my helmet (use it like a carrying basket in stores on shopping errands). My helmet doesn't fit into the topcase anyway, since I have a big, sparkly Mohawk on it. You could rig up a helmet lock under the seat so you don't have to carry yours.
One thought...mine would stall out sometimes after riding a long way at high speeds too. I had the dealer put in Dr. Pulley sliders and now I get more speed out of it and it hasn't stalled out at all. That might be something to consider with yours as well.
