Bypassing the EV Warrior Security Circuit

The remote security system for the EV Warrior was a $200 option.  The remote package (receiver and remote) is still available brand new for $19.95 from https://electricscooterparts.com.  The fob and receiver must be replaced together.  However, you can bypass the system easily.  Unplug the receiver from the wiring harness and use a short wire to jump the center two wires (orange and white).  As long as the power switch is off, you don't have to disconnect the batteries.  See the photo at right.  In truth, the security system did not help much - you could still pedal the bike away, just not use the electric motors.
