Sure, I get that. I think now that I know how to temporarily fix it and the purpose of posting this on forums is for me to try and obtain all the information that I can about the problem before approaching the dealer or Nissan as I think they haven't a clue and try and fob us off. Interesting that you say Zero's are poor quality as they look awesome ( I ride a Guzzi)LeftieBiker wrote:Having had a brand new Zero (quality) motorcycle with isolation fault codes, I can say that it may be hard to find the short, or problem that the car thinks is a short. It's probably a BMS issue, though.
Will note the BMS system possibility... I trust Nissan will provide me with better support since there are lots more Leafs on the road than Zeros. They are relatively common in London. Your experience sucks but the point the rings true is having a dealer that understands what they are doings that they can support you with the manufacturer. I may have to go back to the original dealer who sadly is 120 miles away...LeftieBiker wrote:Zeros have awesome performance, or at least the SR does. I experienced it all of four times. You just have to:
* Live near an excellent Zero dealership (not just any dealer, as many suck).
* Have another awesome bike to ride while your Zero spends weeks or months (yes, months) in the shop.
* Have so much money that you don't care.
I didn't have any of those advantages, so I did a trade with a great guy in MD who really wanted an SR and had a Vectrix VX-1 he'd converted to Leaf cell power. I managed to craft a trade that made us both happy - I got a great electric bike, and cash, and he got a Zero SR. Two years and change later, I'm still happily riding the VX-1, and he has sold the Zero.
