Like any vehicle, electric scooters will require periodic maintenance to ensure they are running properly and to prolong their lifespan.
The most important task is to regularly check your tires to make sure they are properly inflated to at least 50 PSI. Riding on low pressure is the most common cause for flats, leaks, and damage to the tire of the scooter. We recommend checking the tire pressure at least once per week, similar to a frequently used bicycle.
A less common maintenance task will be adjusting the brakes, whenever they start to feel loose or out of alignment. It's also important to keep the brake lines clean of debris and regularly lubricated to prevent corrosion if you are riding in wet environments (rain / snow).
If you don't plan on using the scooter for more than 3 months - see our steps here for properly charging the battery for long term storage.
