Why is it important to do regular maintenance on my Electric Scooter?

Back in the 70's and 80's there was a Fram filter commercial: "You can pay me now, or you can pay him later" - the other guy was a motor rebuilder. Just like a car, your scooter has a small motor in it- and while electric motors are generally trouble free, there are a few easy and simple things you can and should do to keep you scooter running at peak efficiency.

Here are a few quick Scooter maintenance tips:

  1. Top off the battery. Make sure you keep the battery topped off by charging it regularly, even if you are not actively using it.
  2. You should avoid riding in the rain. Even with quality products such as the Electric Scooter Factory scooters- which all have no exposed wiring or cables- they are not meant to be immersed in puddles of water. They are water resistant, not water proof.
  3. Keep it clean. All machines work best when free of excess dirt and grime. 
  4. Inspect the wheels and moving parts regularly. If something is not rolling or folding smoothly, make sure it is clean first, and then give the surface a shot of silicone spray oil- which does not attract dust or dirt. 

This is just a short list of quick maintenance tips for your scooter, if you find your electric scooter is not performing as well as expected- contact us for expert parts and advice here at the Electric Scooter Factory
