Electric scooters can be so much fun, but that fun can quickly change if you do not correctly maintain your scooter. These little motor vehicles are designed to last a long time, but their life can greatly be decreased by the one who is operating it.
Small issues can turn into large problems, which is the reason you should try to keep up your scooter maintenance. Issues such as interrupted power supply may be a result of a failed controller box, low battery charge, malfunction of the master switch or a loose/broken connection.
Here are some tips to help you keep your scooter in good working condition.
Think before you began tearing into something on your scooter. Basically, it’s great to be able to fix an issue yourself, but what happens once you tear it apart and are unable to put it back together? Cell phones are readily available, therefore, help yourself out by taking a photo of the part when it’s fully intact. This will help you get it back together correctly, and save you a lot of time when trying to connect wires in the right order.
Ensure that your tires are properly inflated before every ride. Flat tires could cause you to wreck, which can lead to injuries. Also, a flat tire can cause issues with other parts of your scooter. It is not uncommon for small tires to lose air pressure.
You will want to ensure that you charge your batteries correctly, so its best to use a high quality charger. It’s good practice to charge your battery after each use. This way you will not run out of power when trying to ride. Also, be aware that charging your battery too long can cause issues.
Use a battery charger that has a status light indicator. This will help you determine when the battery is fully charged. If the battery is not able to hold a full charge, it may be time to replace it. You should allow the scooter to cool down for about an hour after each ride before placing it on the charger. Heat can cause damage to the battery.
