Sometimes the engager (the gas knob or the go switch) gets a bad spot. When you start backing up start to go slow and then increase the speed. If it stops at the same point each time, then you will need to replace the engager. You may need a tech to replace this if you are not comfortable with doing it yourself.

I think that this is usual to have a slower reverse speed for safety.But on your shoprider you should have 4mph and 8mph ,usually if you are at 8mph it won`t reverse at that speed, you have to go to 4mph ,look infront of you there is a dial this controls the speed that you go forward and reverse.If reverse speed needs to be increased turn the dial up,but don`t forget this also increases forwards.

I don't know how to remove old batteries to install new batteries in Shoprider Scootie TE-787NA power scooter. I can't lift them up after I remove batteries cover. I can't find it in manual.

Not familiar with that make and model, but we often find that batteries just plain get stuck due to gunk on the battery pan. If you do not see a strap or hold down or anything, try wiggling them to see if that frees them up.

Charging socket

You have to do this correctly or there's going to be a lot of smoke! The black wire is negative, the white positive and the green is ground. The 3-pin female XLR connector you refer to has the three pins where the charger plugs in. Position this connector to that when you look at it, the three pins form a V. The top two pins are directly across from each other, and the bottom pin is at the bottom of the V. The black wire goes to the top left pin, the white goes to the right top pin, and the green goes to the bottom of the V.

Scooters should be charged weekly, leaving for 2 months without a charge will cause the batteries to be so low that they cannot recharge.These type of batteries willnot recharge never mind how long you keep them on charge.
I would suggest it needs some more batteries, yes expensive.

Shoprider clicking sound from back axle when driving forwards

Your motor break is going bad. It attaches to the motor and has a lever which is used for free wheeling the scooter.

Forward/reverse pot is flaky, where can I buy one?

You will need the make, model and the serial number off your scooter. The serial number should be on the frame down under the shroud cover under the seat. Call the manufacturer with this info, and they will either issue you a part, or usually, refer you to an authorized repair facility for replacement of the part. Replacement is pretty straightforward once you have the tiller shroud opened up. Good luck.
