    Sierra battery ring

    Does anyone know how to remove the battery ring holder from the body? I need to move the holder up to fitting the lithium Battery in... It looks to be glued into the body?

    The Dive X scooters are welded from machined (turned) sections and tube sections. The Sierra has a nose piece, then a short section of tube, then a machined section that includes the battery stop ring and battery snap ring groove, then another section of tube.

    These pieces are *welded* together. The battery stop ring and snap ring groove section is *not* glued in and is *not* removable.

    Thanks Tobin, I was looking at mine and come to the same conclusion. But mine is an early model and things may have changed.

    Interesting, as my battery stop ring is kydex I think, and definitely removable.

    I also learned not to put the battery in with it removed :)

    The battery stop ring (the flat one) is a piece of thermoplastic (abs is suspect) that sits in a groove in the machined aluminum ring that is a welded in portion of the scooter hull. This flat, black plastic ring can be removed, but the machined aluminum ring ,~2" in depth, that accepts this stop ring, the oring and the battery retaining snap ring cannot be removed.

    BTW, the reason the stop ring is removable is to allow for hulls with multiple battery packs like a long body sierra.
