This one will be a birthday present for my neice who is turning 5 in March. I'll install a keyed ign and remote kill. Anyone put lights on one of these? I'd like to see how you did it.

Wow, I sold a faded one, with no stickers, just a painted on windshield and black mudflaps for $40. That one looks sweet! Good find.

Pulled off the stickers tonight and started prep for paint. Going pink with a tinkerbell theme. Ordered a few things including a 'powered by pixie dust' sticker and a remote kill setup.

Has anyone ever done headlights on one of these? I'd search, but it's all screwed up again.

Eric - Can you move this to the project pages for me? Thanks!

There's actually a lot of space behind the front shield, so it shouldn't be that hard to add something there. The trick may be routing the wires down to the compartment under the seat.

I did some looking online about bending plexi and it doesn't look that hard, so I think I'm going to try to make a plexi lens for the headlight. I should figure what I'm going to use as a reflector first though.

Anyone do this type of thing a lot?

What about taking apart the handle area. Dremel out the "light". If you get some thin like 1.8" lexan that is very flexable you could use some plastic cement to glue the lexan to the plastic shrowd from the back side. After it is good and dry frost the lexan and put a led panel from oznium or something behind it. Just an idea.

So, I'll be doing gseric69's #7 gearbox mod for this and it got me thinking... I have a brand new pair of 21T GBs I was going to use on the racecar. This quad will be driven mostly on flat lawn, and paved bike paths. Can you think of a reason that would be a bad thing? This will remain at 12v.

Also, I wanted to put a keyed ignition in here, but I was worried about the clearance of the handlebar and steering rod junction. BUT, I found a keyset that fits nicely. Didn't even have to modify the original hole for the fake key.

Did that quad originally have the typical PWs plastic key with the plastic "T" attaching it to the 'switch' thing-a-ma-jig?

If so, I would like more info on that key switch you installed. I suspect those would all be keyed alike,? and I want to add keys switches to at least two PWs.

BTW: Headlight looks great!

Yes, it did.

This isn't where I bought them, but a quick google search yielded these results. Prices look about right. Maybe a little higher, but not much.

Thanks on the headlight. It almost looks like it belongs.

I think that at 12v the 21T's might not have enough torque to go on the grass.
But if it causes problems, swapping back to 19T's shouldn't be hard.

Thanks CJB. Couple of follow up questions if you don't mind .

This can be installed so that it just breaks the battery circuit, instead of controlling a relay, (can handle the current) correct?

Do you know if this could instead, be used to break the motor connections so the electric braking will effectively be disabled?

And yes, the light and the switch almost look factory!

This is only a 4 amp switch. A relay IS required, but they're not hard at all. I'll draw you an easy diagram if you wish. This switch is nice because it's so compact, but it has a low amperage rating for that same reason.

About the second question, I don't see why not, when used in conjuction with a relay or two, but I"ll need Divinar or 12vwiz to come along and figure that diagram out. I don't have the mental capicity for that at the moment.

LOL. If it needs a relay, I may just wait until I make my other wiring decisions (separate brake, variable throttle, etc.) since they may affect which kinds of relays I need. Thanks for the info! Hopefully I can get more of your input when I get further along in my wiring decisions.

Not a problem.

I'm still looking for some input on my afore-mentioned 21T gearbox question if anyone has any thoughts about that.

EDIT: And further more, are the drive hubs interchangeable between the #3 and #7?

Wasn't paying attention to the time and date of the last two posts before my questions, and thought you had resolved the GB prob. Sorry if I hijacked. ....




...I mean, I figured you would enjoy hitting 1000 posts tonight, so I was helping you out.

Wish I had some insight to the GB question, but I'm still mainly in the 'needing help' stage of development. But I can help with computer questions if you ever need.

I had the 21 in the Harley Trike with the Extreme Machine rear wheels and It mooooooooved Yes the torque was gone but real fast of course it ate up the gearboxes on the grass.

21t's.....I've seen an Eliminator with 21ts run around my slightly sloped grassy yard at last years PW meet. It seemed to work out ok.


Key switch.... I don't know for sure, but judging from those little resister wires on the brake, I think 4Amp may be enough for the brake wire. I can't imagine that it draws that much...and its only for a short time. I'd be tempted to put the switch directly in the brake wire. They are cheap...so if it doesn't work...no biggie.

Thanks Taz. I wanna jump in here before CJB, so he can snatch his thread back from me. I wanted to to use the key switch to to kill electric brakes and power. So I thought I could place it between the brake resistor and motors (or shifter actually) to accomplish that (which would also be a great physical wiring placement on the Extreme Machine, since the key hole is right near the shifter). But it doesn't look like it can handle the current that the motors would need.

I can see how using it for electric brakes may be ok, but as far as power goes, the entire line from the battery to the motors is high current. Placing a low current switch in-line with this will result in a melted switch.

Putting a relay in-line instead and using the switch to send power to the coil will be pretty much the only solution for the power line. UNLESS, you can find a key switch rated at 30A or so.

Yup. I would use a relay for the power side. If you were just using it to deactivate the braking, I suspect the switch alone would work.

BTW... Yes, the wheel drivers are interchangable from #3 to #7

Does this look about right?

  • SL is a set of purple strobes I slipped in the headlight
  • SW2 has a gound wire because it's a lighted switch
  • Amber LED is lit when key switch is on, red LED is lit when remote kill is engaged


The remote kill wiring diagram in the FAQs says to wire the kill after the throttle, but I don't see how it makes a difference.

Look this over and let me know if I'm not seeing something.

The way it's wired now, when the kill switch is live, the brakes are NOT applied.

If it's wired after the throttle, activating the kill circuit locks it up, too. (This is how I have mine wired)

And I'd run the red LED off the green wire from the remote, in parallel to the relay, not in series with it - it's going to suck some voltage.

Nice diagram.

I got the impression from the FAQ that wiring the kill after the throttle was to preserve the factory electric braking...?

I'm asking more for my own knowledge than trying to make a suggestion, but; could you use one relay with the key switch and remote kill (may require moving resistor)? Also, will that configuration disable the electric brakes when the key is switched off?

With a DPDT relay, sure. If you have one.

LoL you're hell-bent on keying off those brakes, aren't you.

Why not just use a big toggle switch to turn off the autobrake? Hide it under the seat or something.

Painted today. I think it looks pretty good. I can't wait to put it all together.

Did the chrome trick on the motor things, and used a 'fleck' dusting method I read about on here to provide a 'pixie dust' look.

Also, should I clear coat over all the decals, or put them on AFTER clear coat?

I like the vinyl paper from www.papilio.com
That's what I used for my Sarge stickers.
They have glossy clear vinyl, and flat white vinyl. The flat white doesn't need a top coat, but if you want a glossy finish, you'll have to coat it. The glossy clear does require a top coat or it will smudge with the slightest touch. They sell a laminate spray on their site, but it's aroun $12 a can. I used some fusion gloss clear to top coat the eye stickers I made and it kept them shiney.

HAHA... To be honest, I'm not that great at reading wiring diagrams, or at soldering, so the fewer components, the better.

I thought maybe the kill and remote switches could be in series on the same relay. Would they they not play nice together?

I was thinking the same thing while I was spraying the pink. It's her favorite color though. I kinda had to do it.

Got the wife in on the build this time. I needed some small, detail work done, which I don't have the patience do. Good job, Trina.

I have some clear sticker paper here, so I downloaded a Disney font and made some switch labels.

This LED turns on upon activation of the remote kill swtich. Can anyone think of a name less morbid in a Disney font than 'Kill' for this?

Sleep, Nap, Snooze, Rest, Stop, Override

I tried the Thesaurus...

"X-out, annihilate, asphyxiate, assassinate, crucify, dispatch, do away with, do in, drown, dump, electrocute, eradicate, erase*, execute, exterminate, extirpate, finish, garrote, get*, guillotine, hang, hit*, immolate, liquidate, lynch, massacre, murder, neutralize, obliterate, off*, poison, polish off, put away, put to death, rub out, sacrifice, slaughter, slay, smother, snuff, strangle, suffocate, waste*, wipe out, zap "

..hard to picture in a Disney font, but they didn't look too kid-friendly LOL


Like the font idea, you're full of good ideas!
