6 WAYS TO KEEP YOUR SCOOTER WORKING FOR LONGER
1. Always check your scooter over before riding.
We would recommend checking clamps, folding handles, bolts and screws are tightened properly.
2. Also check the wheels for wear and tear
Please also make sure that the steering column is securely held in the proper position.
3. Most importantly, check the brake on your scooter
4. Spray the wheel bearings and the folding block of your scooter once a week
Use a 3in1 or similar light machine oil as this will help to prevent the bearings from seizing up and it will make sure the folding mechanism operates smoothly.
5. Give you scooter a regular clean
Use a damp cloth to keep it looking and working as good as new. Make sure it is thoroughly dry before you put it away.
6. We recommend you regularly check all bolts on the scooter
Check they are tight and secure (use an Allen key).
