SAFETY
GENERAL
WARNING! Do not operate your new Sport Scooter for the first time without completely
reading and understanding this owner’s manual.
Your Sport Scooter is a state-of-the-art life-enhancement device designed to increase mobility. Pride provides an
extensive variety of products to best fit the individual needs of the Sport Scooter user. Please be aware that the final
selection and purchasing decision regarding the type of Sport Scooter to be used is the responsibility of the Sport
Scooter user who is capable of making such a decision and his/her healthcare professional (i.e., medical doctor,
physical therapist, etc.).
The contents of this manual are based on the expectation that a mobility device expert has properly fitted the Sport
Scooter to the user and has assisted the prescribing healthcare professional and/or the authorized Pride Provider in
the instruction process for the use of the product.
There are certain situations, including some medical conditions, where the Sport Scooter user will need to practice
operating the Sport Scooter in the presence of a trained attendant. A trained attendant can be defined as a family
member or care professional specially trained in assisting a Sport Scooter user in various daily living activities.
As you begin using your Sport Scooter during daily activities, you will probably encounter situations in which you
will need some practice. Simply take your time and you will soon be in full and confident control as you maneuver
through doorways, on and off lifts, up and down ramps, and over moderate terrain.
Below are some precautions, tips, and other safety considerations that will help the user become accustomed to
operating the Sport Scooter safely.
MODIFICATIONS
Pride has designed and engineered your Sport Scooter to provide maximum mobility and utility. A wide range of
accessories is available from your authorized Pride Provider to further customize your Sport Scooter to better suit
your needs and/or preferences. However, under no circumstances should you modify, add, remove, or disable any
feature, part, or function of your Sport Scooter.
WARNING! Do not modify your Sport Scooter in any way not authorized by Pride.
Unauthorized modifications may result in personal injury and/or damage to your Sport
Scooter.
REMOVABLE PARTS
WARNING! Do not attempt to lift or move your Sport Scooter by any of its removable parts.
Personal injury and damage to the Sport Scooter may result.
ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS
Your Sport Scooter’s road performance features may be influenced by electromagnetic fields caused by cellular

SAFETY
PRE-RIDE SAFETY CHECK
Get to know the feel of your Sport Scooter and its capabilities. Pride recommends that you perform a safety check
before each use to make sure your Sport Scooter operates smoothly and safely. For details on how to perform
these necessary inspections, see XII. “Care and Maintenance.”
Perform the following inspections prior to using your Sport Scooter:
n Check for proper tire inflation (if equipped with pneumatic tires).
n Check all electrical connections. Make sure they are tight and not corroded.
n Check all harness connections. Make sure they are secured properly.
n Check the brakes.
n Check battery charge.
If you discover a problem, contact your authorized Pride Provider for assistance.
TIRE INFLATION
If your Sport Scooter is equipped with pneumatic tires, you should check or have the air pressure checked at least
once a week. Proper inflation pressures will prolong the life of your tires and help ensure the smooth operation of
your Sport Scooter.
WARNING! It is critically important that 30-35 psi tire pressure be maintained in pneumatic
tires at all times. Do not underinflate or overinflate your tires. Low pressure may result in
loss of control, and overinflated tires may burst. Failure to maintain 30-35 psi tire pressure
in pneumatic tires at all times may result in tire and/or wheel failure, causing serious
personal injury and/or damage to your Sport Scooter.
WARNING! Inflate your Sport Scooter tires from a regulated air source with an available
pressure gauge. Inflating your tires from an unregulated air source could overinflate them,
resulting in a burst tire and/or personal injury.
WEIGHT LIMITATIONS
Your Sport Scooter is rated for a maximum weight capacity. Refer to the specifications table for information.
WARNING! Exceeding the weight capacity voids your warranty and may result in personal
injury and damage to your Sport Scooter. Pride will not be held responsible for injuries
and/or property damage resulting from failure to observe weight limitations.
WARNING! Do not carry passengers on your Sport Scooter. Carrying passengers may result
in personal injury and/or property damage.
INCLINE INFORMATION
More and more buildings have ramps with specified degrees of inclination, designed for easy and safe access.
Some ramps may have turning switchbacks (180-degree turns) that require you to have good cornering skills on
your Sport Scooter.
n Proceed with extreme caution as you approach the downgrade of a ramp or other incline.
n Take wide swings with your Sport Scooter around any tight corners. If you do that, the Sport Scooter’s rear
wheels will follow a wide arc, not cut the corner short, and not bump into or get hung up on any railing corners.
n When driving down a ramp, keep the Sport Scooter’s speed adjustment set to the slowest speed setting to
ensure a safely controlled descent.
n Avoid sudden stops and starts.

II.
SAFETY
When climbing an incline, try to keep your Sport Scooter moving. If you must stop, start up again slowly, and then
accelerate cautiously. When driving down an incline, do so by setting the speed adjustment dial to the slowest
setting and driving in the forward direction only. If your Sport Scooter starts to move down the incline faster than
you anticipated or desired, allow it to come to a complete stop by releasing the throttle control lever. Then push the
throttle control lever forward slightly to ensure a safely controlled descent.
WARNING! When climbing an incline, do not zigzag or drive at an angle up the face of the
incline. Drive your Sport Scooter straight up the incline. This greatly reduces the possibility
of a tip or a fall. Always exercise extreme caution when negotiating an incline.
WARNING! Do not drive your Sport Scooter across the side of a hill or diagonally up or
down a hill; do not stop, if possible, while driving up or down an incline.
WARNING! You should not travel up or down a potentially hazardous incline (i.e., areas
covered with snow, ice, cut grass, or wet leaves).
WARNING! When on any sort of an incline or decline, never place the Sport Scooter in
freewheel mode while seated on it or standing next to it.
WARNING! Even though your Sport Scooter is capable of climbing slopes greater than
those illustrated in figures 1 and 1A, do not, under any circumstances, exceed the incline
guidelines or any other specifications presented in this manual. Doing so could cause
instability in your Sport Scooter, resulting in personal injury and/or damage to your Sport
Scooter.
Handicap public access ramps are not subject to government regulation in all countries, and therefore do not
necessarily share the same standard percent of slope. Other inclines may be natural or, if man-made, not designed
specifically for Sport Scooters. Figures 1 and 1A illustrate your Sport Scooter’s stability and its ability to climb
grades under various weight loads and under controlled testing conditions.
These tests were conducted with the Sport Scooter’s seat in the highest position and adjusted rearward on the seat
base to its farthest rearward position. Use this information as a guideline. Your Sport Scooter’s ability to travel up
inclines is affected by your weight, your Sport Scooter’s speed, your angle of approach to the incline, and your
Sport Scooter setup.

SAFETY
When you approach an incline, it is best to lean forward. See figures 2 and 2A. This shifts the center of gravity of
you and your Sport Scooter toward the front of the Sport Scooter for improved stability.
Figure 2. Normal Driving Position
Figure 2A. Increased Stability Driving Position
CORNERING INFORMATION
Excessively high cornering speeds can create the possibility of tipping. Factors which affect the possibility of
tipping include, but are not limited to, cornering speed, steering angle (how sharply you are turning), uneven road
surfaces, inclined road surfaces, riding from an area of low traction to an area of high traction (such as passing from
a grassy area to a paved area – especially at high speed while turning), and abrupt directional changes. High
cornering speeds are not recommended. If you feel that you may tip over in a corner, reduce your speed and
steering angle (i.e., lessen the sharpness of the turn) to prevent your Sport Scooter from tipping.
WARNING! When cornering sharply, reduce your speed. When using your Sport Scooter at
higher speeds, do not corner sharply. This greatly reduces the possibility of a tip or fall. To
avoid personal injury or property damage, always exercise common sense when cornering.
BRAKING INFORMATION
Your Sport Scooter is equipped with two powerful brake systems:
1. Regenerative: Uses electricity to rapidly slow the vehicle when the throttle control lever returns to the center/
stop position.
2. Disc Park Brake: Activates mechanically after regenerative braking slows the vehicle to near stop, or when
power is removed from the system for any reason.

SAFETY
OUTDOOR DRIVING SURFACES
Your Sport Scooter is designed to provide optimum stability under normal driving conditions—dry, level surfaces
composed of concrete, blacktop, or asphalt. However, Pride recognizes that there will be times when you will
encounter other surface types. For this reason, your Sport Scooter is designed to perform admirably on packed
soil, grass, and gravel. Feel free to use your Sport Scooter safely on lawns and in park areas.
n
n
n
n
Reduce your Sport Scooter’s speed when driving on uneven terrain and/or soft surfaces.
Avoid tall grass that can become tangled in the running gear.
Avoid loosely packed gravel and sand.
If you feel unsure about a driving surface, avoid that surface.
PUBLIC STREETS AND ROADWAYS
WARNING! You should not operate your Sport Scooter on public streets and roadways. Be
aware that it may be difficult for traffic to see you when you are seated on your Sport
Scooter. Obey all local pedestrian traffic rules. Wait until your path is clear of traffic, and
then proceed with extreme caution.
NOTE: Safety accessories like fluorescent flags are available to order from your authorized Pride Provider.
STATIONARY OBSTACLES (STEPS, CURBS, ETC.)
WARNING! Do not drive near raised surfaces, unprotected ledges, and/or drop-offs (curbs,
porches, stairs, etc.).
WARNING! Do not attempt to have your Sport Scooter climb or descend an obstacle that
is inordinately high. Serious personal injury and/or damage may result.
WARNING! Do not attempt to have your Sport Scooter proceed backward down any step,
curb, or other obstacle. This may cause the Sport Scooter to tip and cause personal
injury.
WARNING! Be sure your Sport Scooter is traveling perpendicular to any curb you may be
required to ascend or descend. See figures 3 and 3A.
WARNING! Do not attempt to negotiate a curb that has a height greater than 2 in.

SAFETY
INCLEMENT WEATHER PRECAUTIONS
WARNING! Pride recommends that you do not operate your Sport Scooter in icy or slippery
conditions or on salted surfaces (i.e., walks or roads). Such use may result in an accident,
personal injury, or adversely affect the performance and safety of your Sport Scooter.
WARNING! Do not operate or store your Sport Scooter where it may be exposed to inclement
weather conditions such as rain, snow, mist, and below freezing temperatures (such as
storage on an outside car/van lift). Attempting to operate the Sport Scooter in such
conditions can damage the electronics and potentially result in loss of control.
FREEWHEEL MODE
Your Sport Scooter is equipped with a manual freewheel lever that, when pulled up, allows the Sport Scooter to be
pushed. For more information about how to place your Sport Scooter into and out of freewheel mode, see V. “Your
Sport Scooter.”
WARNING! When your Sport Scooter is in freewheel mode, the braking system is disengaged.
n Disengage the drive motors only on a level surface.
n Ensure the key is removed from the key switch.
n Stand behind the Sport Scooter to engage or disengage freewheel mode. Never sit on
a Sport Scooter to do this.
n After you have finished pushing your Sport Scooter, always return it to the drive mode
to lock the brakes.
Failure to heed the above could result in personal injury and/or damage to your Sport
Scooter.
An added feature built into the Sport Scooter is “push-too-fast” protection which safeguards the Sport Scooter
against gaining excessive speed while in freewheel mode.
“Push-too-fast” operates differently depending on which of two conditions exists:
n If the key is switched “off” while in freewheel mode, the Sport Scooter’s controller activates regenerative
braking when the Sport Scooter is pushed faster than a maximum threshold which has been preprogrammed.
In this case, the controller is acting as a speed governor.
n If the key is switched “on” while in freewheel mode, you will encounter considerable resistance at any speed.
This prevents the Sport Scooter from gaining unwanted momentum should the manual freewheel lever inad
vertently be released while driving the Sport Scooter.

SAFETY
STAIRS AND ESCALATORS
Sport Scooters are not designed to travel up or down stairs or escalators. Always use an elevator.
WARNING! Do not use your Sport Scooter to negotiate steps or escalators. You may cause
injury to yourself and to others and/or damage your Sport Scooter.
DOORS
n Determine if the door opens toward or away from you.
n Use your hand to turn the knob or push the handle or push-bar.
n Drive your Sport Scooter gently and slowly forward to push the door open. Or drive your Sport Scooter
gently and slowly rearwards to pull the door open.
ELEVATORS
Modern elevators have a door edge safety mechanism that, when pushed, reopens the door(s).
n If you are in the doorway of a elevator when the door(s) begin to close, push on the rubber door edge or allow
the rubber door edge to contact the Sport Scooter and the door will reopen.
n Use care that pocketbooks, packages, or Sport Scooter accessories do not become caught in elevator doors.
LIFT/ELEVATION PRODUCTS
If you will be traveling with your Sport Scooter, you may find it necessary to use a lift/elevation product to aid in
transportation. Pride recommends that you closely review the instructions, specifications, and safety information
set forth by the manufacturer of the lift/elevation product before using that product.
WARNING! Never sit on your Sport Scooter when it is being used in connection with any
type of lift/elevation product. Your Sport Scooter was not designed with such use in mind,
and any damage or injury incurred from such use is not the responsibility of Pride.
BATTERIES
In addition to following the warnings below, be sure to comply with all other battery handling information.
WARNING! Sport Scooter batteries are heavy (refer to specifications table). Lifting weight
beyond your capacity could result in personal injury. If necessary, get someone physically
able to lift the Sport Scooter batteries for you.
WARNING! Battery posts, terminals, and related accessories contain lead and lead
compounds. Wash hands after handling.
WARNING! Always protect the batteries from freezing and never charge a frozen battery.
Charging a frozen battery may result in personal injury and/or damage to the battery.
WARNING! RED (+) cables must be connected to positive (+) battery terminals/posts. BLACK
(-) cables must be connected to negative (-) battery terminals/posts. Failure to connect
your battery harnesses in the proper manner may result in personal injury and/or damage
to your Sport Scooter. REPLACE cables immediately if damaged.

SAFETY
MOTOR VEHICLE TRANSPORT
Currently, there are no standards approved for tie-down systems in a moving vehicle of any type to transport a
person while seated in a Sport Scooter.
Although your Sport Scooter may be equipped with a positioning belt, this belt is not designed to provide proper
restraint during motor vehicle transport. Anyone traveling in a motor vehicle should be properly secured in the
motor vehicle seat with safety belts fastened securely.
WARNING! Do not sit on your Sport Scooter while it is in a moving vehicle. Personal injury
and/or property damage may result.
WARNING! Always be sure your Sport Scooter and its batteries are properly secured when
it is being transported. Failure to do so may result in personal injury and/or damage to your
Sport Scooter.
PREVENTING UNINTENDED MOVEMENT
WARNING! If you anticipate being seated in a stationary position for an extended period
of time, turn off the power. This will prevent unexpected motion from inadvertent throttle
control lever contact. Failure to do so may result in personal injury.
GETTING ONTO AND OFF OF YOUR SPORT SCOOTER
Getting onto and off of your Sport Scooter requires a good sense of balance. Please observe the following safety
tips when getting onto and off of your Sport Scooter:
n Ensure that your Sport Scooter is not in freewheel mode. See V. “Your Sport Scooter.”
n Make certain that the seat is locked into place and the key is removed from the key switch.
n The seat armrests of the seat can be flipped up to make getting onto and off of the Sport Scooter easier.
WARNING! Position yourself as far back as possible in the Sport Scooter seat to prevent
the Sport Scooter from tipping and causing injury.
WARNING! Avoid using your armrests for weight bearing purposes. Such use may cause
the Sport Scooter to tip and cause personal injury.
WARNING! Avoid putting all of your weight on the floorboard. Such use may cause the
Sport Scooter to tip and cause personal injury.
REACHING AND BENDING
Avoid reaching or bending while driving your Sport Scooter. When reaching, bending, or leaning while seated on
your Sport Scooter, it is important to maintain a stable center of gravity and keep the Sport Scooter from tipping.
Pride recommends that the Sport Scooter user determine his/her personal limitations and practice bending and
reaching in the presence of a qualified healthcare professional.
WARNING! Do not bend, lean, or reach for objects if you have to pick them up from the
floor by reaching down between your knees. Movements such as these may change your
center of gravity and the weight distribution of the Sport Scooter and cause your Sport
Scooter to tip, possibly resulting in personal injury. Keep your hands away from the tires
when driving.

EMI/RFI
EMI/RFI WARNINGS
Laboratory tests performed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have shown that radio waves can cause
unintended motion of electric mobility vehicles. Radio waves are a form of electromagnetic energy (EM). When
electromagnetic energy adversely affects the operation of an electrical device, that adverse effect is called Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) or Radio Frequency Interference (RFI).
WARNING! Radio waves may interfere with the control of Sport Scooters.
EMI/RFI FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQS)
The following FAQs summarize what you should know about EMI/RFI. Use this information to minimize the risk
that EMI/RFI will adversely affect your mobility vehicle.
Where do radio waves come from?
Radio waves are emitted from the antennas of cellular phones, mobile two-way radios (such as walkie-talkies and
CBs), radio stations, TV stations, amateur radio (HAM) transmitters, wireless computer links, microwave sources,
and paging transmitters. Radio waves are a form of electromagnetic energy (EM). EM is more intense closer to
transmitting antennas, which are sources of emission. The greater the transmission strength, the greater the concern
to electric mobility vehicle users.
If EMI/RFI affects my mobility vehicle, what kind of motion should I expect?
This is difficult to predict. The answer would depend on a number of factors:
n The strength of the radio waves.
n The construction of your particular mobility vehicle.
n The location of your mobility vehicle (whether it is on the level ground or on an incline).
n Whether or not your mobility vehicle is in motion.
The motion of any electric mobility vehicle affected by EMI/RFI can be erratic. The mobility vehicle may come to a
sudden stop or move in an uncontrolled manner. Also, it is possible for EMI/RFI to release the brakes of an electric
mobility vehicle. Some intense EMI/RFI can even damage the control system components of an electric mobility vehicle.
Is there any way to know for certain whether or not radio waves are the cause of any unintended
mobility vehicle motion?
Unfortunately, EMI/RFI may be difficult to recognize, because the signals from radio sources are invisible and may
be intermittent. However, the FDA recommends that you report all incidents of unintended motion or unintended
brake release of your mobility vehicle to its manufacturer and, if possible, determine whether or not there was a
radio wave source nearby at the time of the incident.
One precaution you can take against unintended motion of your mobility vehicle is to make certain that you or
someone else is not the cause of the unintended motion.
n Turn off your mobility vehicle by removing the key from the key switch when you are getting onto or off of your
mobility vehicle.
n Never leave the key in the key switch of an unattended mobility vehicle.
n By following these steps, you greatly reduce the risk of you or anyone else inadvertently bumping the throttle
control levers and causing the mobility vehicle to move unintentionally.

III.
EMI/RFI
Has anyone been injured by the erratic, unintended motion of an electric mobility vehicle?
The FDA has reports of injuries that resulted from uncontrolled motion of electric mobility vehicles, but it is not
clear just how many of those injuries were actually caused by EMI/RFI.
Are all electric mobility vehicles susceptible to EMI/RFI?
Each make and model of electric mobility vehicle differs in its ability to resist EMI/RFI. Every mobility vehicle has a
particular level of resistance to EMI/RFI. This resistance is measured in volts per meter (V/m). A higher resistance
level offers greater protection against EMI/RFI. In other words, an electric mobility vehicle with a high resistance level
is less likely to be affected by a strong radio source than is an electric mobility vehicle with a low resistance level.
What is the FDA doing about the problem?
The FDA has written to electric mobility vehicle manufacturers and requested that those manufacturers test their new
mobility vehicle models to be certain that they provide a reasonable degree of resistance against EMI/RFI. The FDA
has stated that all newly manufactured electric mobility vehicle models should have a resistance level of at least 20 V/
m. This level of resistance provides a reasonable degree of protection against the common sources of EMI/RFI.
The FDA has also requested or recommended that:
n Electric mobility vehicle manufacturers clearly label new products with their resistance level or state that the
resistance level is not known.
n The labeling or informational material supplied with new electric mobility vehicles must explain what the resistance level means and warn users about the possibility of EMI/RFI and how to avoid it.
n Electric mobility vehicle manufacturers undertake an educational program to inform electric mobility vehicle
users and their caregivers about the problems associated with EMI/RFI and about the actions they can take to
minimize the risk of EMI/RFI.
n While there is no exact way to tell if your mobility vehicle is totally safe, an immunity level of 20 V/m is generally
achievable and useful. This product has been tested and passed at an immunity level of 20 V/m.
What can I do to find out if my mobility vehicle is likely to be affected by EMI/RFI?
If you have had your mobility vehicle for some time and have not experienced any unintended motion, it is not likely
that you will have a problem in the future. However, it is always possible that EMI/RFI problems could arise if you
are close to a source of radio waves. Therefore, it is very important for you to be alert to this possibility. The
mobility vehicle meets or exceeds a resistance level of at least 20 V/m.
What can I do to reduce the risk of my mobility vehicle being affected by EMI/RFI?
Here are some precautions you can take:
n Do not turn on or use hand-held personal communications devices, such as citizens band (CB) radios and
cellular phones, while your mobility vehicle is turned on.
n Be aware of nearby radio wave transmitters, such as radio or TV stations and hand-held or mobile two-way
radios. Try not to operate your mobility vehicle too close to those transmitters. For example, if you are on an
electric mobility vehicle with a resistance level of at least 20 V/m, you should remain at least three feet from a
hand-held two-way radio and at least ten feet from a mobile two-way radio.
n Be aware that adding accessories and/or components, or modifying your mobility vehicle in any way, may
change its EMI/RFI resistance level and may make it more susceptible to interference from radio wave sources.
What should I do if my mobility vehicle moves unexpectedly?
If unintended motion or unintended brake release occurs, turn off your mobility vehicle (by removing the key) as

TURBO FUNCTION
The Turbo mode provides the option of increasing the Sport Scooter speed up to 8 mph by simply pressing and
holding in the Turbo button while driving a straight course on flat and smooth terrain. This beneficial feature allows
the user to travel greater distances in less time as compared to the “conventional” Sport Scooter speed mode.
The Turbo function will engage whenever the speed adjustment buttons are set to more than 3/4 of the Sport
Scooter’s top speed when the throttle control lever is fully depressed.
When the Turbo button is released, the Sport Scooter then returns to the normal maximum “Sport Scooter speed
mode” speed of approximately 5.5 mph (depending upon where the maximum speed LED is set).
WARNING! In the event the Turbo button sticks or malfunctions when you try to use it,
Pride recommends that you release the throttle control lever to stop your Sport Scooter.
Set the Sport Scooter speed to under 1/2 full speed to disable the Turbo feature, then
notify your authorized Pride Provider immediately.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQS)
How does the charger work?
When your Sport Scooter’s battery voltage is low, the charger works harder, sending more electrical current to the
batteries to bring up their charge. As the batteries approach a full charge, the charger sends less and less electrical
current. When the batteries are fully charged, the current sent from the charger is at nearly zero amperage. Therefore, when the charger is plugged in, it maintains the charge on your Sport Scooter’s batteries, but does not
overcharge them. We do not recommend that you charge your Sport Scooter’s batteries for more than 24 consecutive hours.
What if my Sport Scooter’s batteries won’t charge?
n Ensure that the battery cables are connected properly.
n Ensure that both ends of the charger power cord are inserted fully.
n Examine the 5-amp charger fuse. If the fuse is blown, the batteries will not charge. See figures 9 and 10.
Can I use a different charger?
For the safest, most efficient, and balanced charging of your Sport Scooter’s batteries, we prefer and highly
recommend simultaneous charging of both batteries with the onboard battery charger.
How often must I charge the batteries?
Two major factors must be considered when deciding how often to charge your Sport Scooter’s batteries:
n All day Sport Scooter use on a daily basis.
n Infrequent or sporadic Sport Scooter use.
With these considerations in mind, you can determine how often and for how long you should charge your Sport
Scooter’s batteries. We designed the onboard charger so that it will not overcharge your Sport Scooter’s batteries. However, you may encounter some problems if you do not charge your batteries often enough and if you do
not charge them on a regular basis. Following the five guidelines below will provide safe and reliable battery
operation and charging.
n If you use your Sport Scooter daily, charge its batteries as soon as you finish using it for the day. Your Sport Scooter
will be ready each morning to give you a full day of service. We recommend that you charge your Sport Scooter’s
batteries for 8 to 14 hours after daily use.
n If you use your Sport Scooter once a week or less, charge its batteries at least once a week for 12 to 14 hours at a
time.
n Keep your Sport Scooter’s batteries fully charged.
n Avoid deeply discharging your Sport Scooter’s batteries.
n Do not charge your Sport Scooter’s batteries for more than 24 consecutive hours.

B AT T E R I E S A N D C H A R G I N G
How can I get maximum range or distance per charge?
Rarely will you have ideal driving conditions—smooth, flat, hard driving surfaces with no wind or curves. Often,
you will face hills, sidewalk cracks, uneven and loosely packed surfaces, curves, and wind, all of which affect the
distance or running time per battery charge. How often the Turbo button is used also effects your overall battery
range. Below are a few suggestions for obtaining the maximum range per battery charge.
n Always fully charge your Sport Scooter’s batteries prior to daily use.
n Maintain 30 psi (pounds per square inch) in each tire.
n Plan your route ahead to avoid as many hills, cracked, broken, or soft surfaces as possible.
n Limit your baggage weight to essential items.
n Try to maintain an even speed while your Sport Scooter is in motion.
n Avoid stop-and-go driving.
What type and size of battery should I use?
We recommend deep-cycle batteries that are sealed and maintenance free. Both AGM and Gel-Cell are deep-cycle
batteries that are similar in performance. Do not use wet-cell batteries, which have removable caps.
WARNING! Corrosive chemicals are contained in batteries. Use only AGM or Gel-Cell
batteries to reduce the risk of leakage or explosive conditions.
NOTE: Sealed batteries are not serviceable. Do not remove the caps.
Use these specifications to reorder deep-cycle batteries:
Type:
Deep-cycle (AGM or Gel-Cell)
Size:
U-1 (32 AH only) or 40 AH
Voltage:
12-volts each
Amperage:
32 AH or 40 AH (amp hours)
To change a battery in your Sport Scooter:
WARNING! Battery posts, terminals, and related accessories contain lead and lead
compounds. Wash hands after handling.

Why do my new batteries seem weak?
Deep-cycle batteries employ a different chemical technology than that used in car batteries, nickel-cadmium batteries (nicads), and other common battery types. Deep-cycle batteries are specifically designed to provide power,
drain down their charge, and then accept a relatively quick recharge.

We work closely with our battery manufacturer to provide batteries that best suit your Sport Scooter’s specific
electrical demands. Fresh batteries arrive daily at Pride and are shipped fully charged to our customers. During
shipping, the batteries may encounter temperature extremes that can influence their initial performance. Heat diminishes
the charge on the battery; cold slows the available power and extends the time needed to recharge the battery.
It may take a few days for the temperature of your Sport Scooter’s batteries to stabilize and adjust to their new
room or ambient temperature.
More importantly, it takes a few charging cycles (partial draining followed by full recharging) to establish the critical
chemical balance that is essential to a deep-cycle battery’s peak performance and long life.
Follow these steps to properly break-in your Sport Scooter’s new batteries for maximum efficiency and service life.
1. Fully recharge any new battery prior to its initial use. This charging cycle brings the battery up to about 88% of
its peak performance level.
2. Operate your new Sport Scooter in familiar and safe areas. Drive slowly at first, and do not travel too far from
your home or familiar surroundings until you have become accustomed to your Sport Scooter’s controls and
have properly broken in your Sport Scooter’s batteries.
3. Fully recharge the batteries. They should be at over 90% of their peak performance level.
4. Operate your Sport Scooter again.
5. Fully recharge the batteries again.
6. After four or five charging cycles, the batteries are able to receive a charge of 100% of their peak performance
level and are able to last for an extended period of time.
How can I ensure maximum battery life?
Fully charged deep-cycle batteries provide reliable performance and extended battery life. Keep your Sport Scooter’s
batteries fully charged whenever possible. Batteries that are regularly and deeply discharged, infrequently charged, or
stored without a full charge may be permanently damaged, causing unreliable performance and limited service life.
How should I store my Sport Scooter and its batteries?
see XII. “Care and Maintenance.”
What about public transportation?
If you intend to use public transportation with your Sport Scooter, you must contact the transportation Provider in
advance to determine their specific requirements.

BASIC
TROUBLESHOOTING
Any electromechanical device requires occasional troubleshooting. However, most problems that arise can be
solved with a bit of thought and common sense. Many of these problems occur because the batteries are not fully
charged or because the batteries are worn down and can no longer hold a charge.
DIAGNOSTIC BEEP CODES
Diagnostic beep codes help you to perform basic troubleshooting quickly and easily. A diagnostic beep code will
sound in the event one of the conditions listed below develops. After you perform the solution associated with the
diagnostic beep code, your Sport Scooter should resume normal operation.
NOTE: Your Sport Scooter will not run unless the beep code condition is resolved and the Sport Scooter
has been turned off and then turned back on.
BEEP CODE
1 beep every 5 seconds
CONDITION
Batteries are getting low.
SOLUTION
Charge batteries as soon as possible.
2 beeps every 5 seconds

CARE
AND
MAINTENANCE
Your Sport Scooter requires a minimal amount of care and maintenance. If you do not feel confident in your ability
to perform the maintenance listed below, you may schedule inspection and maintenance at your authorized Pride
Provider. The following areas require periodic inspection and/or care and maintenance.
TIRE PRESSURE
n If equipped with pneumatic tires, always maintain a proper 30-35 psi tire pressure.
WARNING! It is important that 30-35 psi tire pressure be maintained in pneumatic tires at
all times. Do not underinflate or overinflate your tires. Low pressure may result in loss of
control, and overinflated tires may burst. Failure to maintain 30-35 psi tire pressure in
pneumatic tires at all times may result in tire and/or wheel failure, causing serious personal
injury and/or damage to your Sport Scooter.
n Regularly inspect your Sport Scooter’s tires for signs of wear.
EXTERIOR SURFACES
Bumpers, tires, trim ,and the tiller boot can benefit from an occasional application of rubber or vinyl conditioner.
WARNING! Do not use a rubber or vinyl conditioner on the Sport Scooter’s vinyl seat,
floorboard, or tire tread. They will become dangerously slippery and result in personal
injury and/or damage to your Sport Scooter.
BATTERY TERMINAL CONNECTIONS
n Make certain that the terminal connections remain tight and uncorroded.
n The batteries must sit flat in the battery wells.
n The battery terminals should face the rear of the Sport Scooter.
WIRING HARNESSES
n Regularly check all wiring connections.
n Regularly check all wiring insulation, including the charger power cord, for wear or damage.
n Have your authorized Pride Provider repair or replace any damaged connector, connection, or insulation that
you find before using your Sport Scooter again.
ABS PLASTIC SHROUDS
n The front tiller shroud, front shroud, and the rear shroud are formed from durable ABS plastic and are coated
with an advanced formula urethane paint.
n A light application of car wax will help the shrouds retain their high gloss.
AXLE BEARINGS AND THE MOTOR/TRANSAXLE ASSEMBLY
These items are all prelubricated, sealed, and require no subsequent lubrication.
MOTOR BRUSHES
The motor brushes are housed inside of the motor transaxle/assembly. They should be inspected periodically for
wear by your authorized Pride Provider.

CARE
AND
MAINTENANCE
CONSOLE, CHARGER, AND REAR ELECTRONICS
n Keep these areas free of moisture.
n Allow these areas to dry thoroughly if they have been exposed to moisture before operating your Sport Scooter
again.
FUSE REPLACEMENT
In the event a fuse should cease to work:
n Remove the fuse by pulling it out of its slot.
n Examine the fuse to be sure it is blown. See figures 9 and 10.
n Insert a new fuse of the proper rating.
WARNING! The replacement fuse must exactly match the rating of the new fuse. Failure
to use properly rated fuses may cause damage to the electrical system and may result in
personal injury.
LIGHTBULB REPLACEMENT
The Sport Scooter’s light bulbs are easily replaceable. Do not use regular automotive-type 12-volt light bulbs;
your Sport Scooter is equipped with a 24-volt electrical system. Replacement light bulbs can be purchased from
your authorized Pride Provider.
NOTE: Use only 24 volt light bulbs.
n
n
n
n
Remove the light cover.
Gently remove the bulb by pulling it straight out.
Insert a new bulb of the same wattage.
Replace the light cover.
STORING YOUR SPORT SCOOTER
If you plan on not using your Sport Scooter for an extended period of time, it is best to:
n Fully charge its batteries prior to storage.
n Disconnect the batteries from the Sport Scooter.
n Store your Sport Scooter in a warm, dry environment.
n Avoid storing your Sport Scooter where it will be exposed to temperature extremes.
WARNING! Always protect batteries from freezing temperatures and never charge a frozen
battery. This damages the battery and can cause personal injury.
For prolonged storage, you may wish to place several boards under the frame of your Sport Scooter to raise it off
of the ground. This takes the weight off the tires and reduces the possibility of flat spots developing on the areas of
the tires contacting the ground.
