First of all,
Make sure the freewheel lever is unengaged (up or down ?) , this can be tested by pushing the scooter forward , you should hear gearbox clunk,(Freewheel not engaged) Not all scooters sound a alarm when freewheel is engaged.
is the power indicator working okay,
Does the Wig Wam move freely, the thumb throttle part,
Check under the seat to make sure you have not blown or tripped the fuse, if it's a switch simply pressing the button will sort it, if not check the two prong fuse ,
you may also have some reset buttons on the stem so look out for them.
Now let me what you tried

jdl0755, I'm having the same problem with my DKS-200. I was wondering if you determined the problem? I'll let you know if I figure it out with mine.

On some scooters it is possible to change the polarity of the motor. If its a two brush motor (most are) you can just swap the red and black wires around in the connector plug for the motor. Make sure you get the right wires if you do this but I have to point out that there is obviously a problem with the scooter and I would strongly advise you to get it looked at by your local dealer as the problem is potentially serious and may cause other problems aswell. I cant really understand why it would only go backwards. May be a throttle pot problem or main controller fault. Either way, as I said, best get it looked at as even if you do swap the wires, it is most likely that the scooter will only travel forward at the usual speed for reverse, normally 2mph! Hope this helps...
