Just wanted to drop a few photos and comments on the neck brace upgrade on the Apollo Phantom. I received the modification parts to help deter the neck area from cracking as apparently there is a very tiny percentage of scooters having this issue. So points here:
1) I cannot find the video on the Apollo channel chowing how to mount the upgrade as they say in their emails? It’s an easy installation but why claim there is a video when there is not?
2) the cable going to the controller in the base platform IMO is to tight in the brace and it is a sharp friction point when turning the wheel, I’m going to put something in front of the cable so it does not touch the sharp corner. It would be nice if the cable had just a little more play.
3) the screws provided in the kit work fine for 3 out of the four holes in the brace. The bottom right screw however is going to be a new hazard. When you turn the steering column. the screw head hooks the brake cables and you can’t turn the scooter. I’m replacing that screw with a low profile pan head screw so the cable will not hook on it. I suggest Apollo looks at this as well and addresses this.
