You will need to take the seat off and the cowl which covers the batteries. The charger should be located under there. Be careful with wiring as some are wired into the control system for inhibit to stop you driving away with the charger plugged into the mains.
hi, Okay now get the back wheels off the ground and power the scooter , it important that you have some help now take your hand and place it on the brake with care while it moving forward with the wheels off the ground now the scraping, feel around the gearbox and where the axle connects to the wheels, you should find it worse either near the centre of the gearbox (main worm-gear drive worn or needs some lubrication) or one of the wheels (bearing worn on the axle part of the gearbox),
Health & Safely Warning: Please please take care when doing this , it 's important to understand that you don't need the scooter flat out , you must sure the scooter is secure and you will need some assistance. Take care when moving your hand around..
Hi! I have 2 Gio Scooters. I looked and looked for a tube for my tire and couldn't find a place until I realized that if you go to Ebay online you can actually buy them through Sven the supplier who sells the Gio Scooters on Ebay. You can just buy them from him and pay through paypal. Make sure the valve is curved and not straight out or it's not the right one. He ships pretty fast too:) I hope this has helped. It took me awhile to get parts. He also will ship parts, he's out of Vancouver. So Good Luck:) Do you know anything about fuses for these bikes???? Grrrr.... TTYL.G
This is typically not a do-it-yourself repair. The reason is that there are many parts to the steering column including upper and lower bearings and races, steering linkages, a front console wiring harness, and many other small parts. These parts must be assembled in sequence and aligned properly otherwise the scooter will not steer straight and will have noise and sloppiness in the column. You could also damage the wiring harness that goes through this area.
With that being said there ARE some adjustments that can be made to the tiller and steering column to improve its performance.
The tiller angle adjustment knob should be as tight as you can make it by hand.
If you place a block of wood under the front of the scooter you can check for free play with the front wheels off the ground. The tiller should move left and right without binding or noise. The top cup of the bearing race has some lock nuts that you can use as adjusters. Loosen the lock nuts and turn the top race clockwise until the sloppiness is gone and there is some resistance. Re-tighten the lock nuts making sure the column is centered. You don't want to over tighten the bearing races. The tie rods and ball joints are not a DIY adjustment or replacement.
If you need replacement of the top and bottom bearings find a local scooter mechanic or bike shop to do it for you.
If you have serious steering problems do not drive the scooter until it is repaired.
Hope this helps
I have repaired a scooter with the same problem, it normally the rear part of the motor connections, like string loaded connectors, you will need to gently rough up the connecters so a good connection is made , also below the bike there are the main wiring connecters again remove the connectors then reinsert, this is normally a bad connection problem. where the read disconnects to the main scooter is the main area of connection problems.
