Re: electric scooter question
Like any vehicle, if you something foolish and you'll probably get hurt. Ridden under normal conditions however, the electric scooters are as safe as a bike or skateboard. Avoid cars and wear a helmet or other safety gear to minimize the risk of injury. Also you can take extra safety precautions in order to minimize the risk or injury.

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..
Either the hill is too steep of a grade/incline, the weight of the rider is more than the scooter is designed to carry, or the battery does not have enough power. If the batteries are old or have not been maintained properly, they may not be getting a deep solid charge that is needed to operate on hilly terrain. This is indicated when the batteries show a full charge, and then drop off quickly after a short period of use. Make sure that you are not exceeding the recommended weight limit for the scooter and that your batteries are less than 2 years old. Inclines of more than 5-6 degrees are typically not recommended for safe operation. I hope this information is helpful to you, good luck!
Always check the battery connections first because too many times it is a loose connection or battery bolt. it would happen more if you drive it a long distance, or up a hill and the controller over heats or if you are hitting a bump. when the controller cools down it drives again.
A small tip here - bigger is better. The large diameter wheels clear gaps in concrete or pavement that would hang up a skate wheel or a scooter with smaller wheels. Most electric scooters also handle well in gravel and small terrain features. We don't recommend slamming electric scooters into a curb to get over it like some people do with their bike. This could result in damage to the electric scooter. Simply Ollie up a curb and keep going.
