CHECK STATE & LOCAL LAWS
Your state department of motor vehicles (DMV), or the city or county where it will be used, may regulate the use of
devices like the SCOOT - N - GO™. Some states may require a driver's license or minimum age to use the SCOOT - N GO™, or require the SCOOT - N - GO™ to be registered or licensed or require some additional type of equipment
like a brighter headlight. Please check with your state DMV or local municipality on requirements for using the
SCOOT - N - GO™. They can be located in the phonebook. State DMV offices can also be located on the Internet at
such sites as the following www.dmv.org or www.statehousegirls.net/agencies/dmv.
If your state or municipality allows the SCOOT - N - GO™ to be used on vehicle roadways please make sure you are
familiar with all traffic laws as set forth by your state DMV, such as yielding to pedestrians and other motorists,
signaling, riding as far to the right edge of the roadway as possible, obeying traffic signs etc. Your state DMV can
provide you with materials setting forth these traffic laws.
In addition to those traffic laws abide by the following general principals:
1. You are sharing the road or the path with others -- motorists, pedestrians and other cyclists. Respect their rights,
and be tolerant if they infringe on yours.
2. Ride defensively.
3. Look ahead of where you're going, and be ready to avoid:
* Vehicles slowing or turning in front of you, entering the road or your lane ahead of you, or coming up behind you.
* Parked car doors opening in front of you.
* Pedestrians stepping out in front of you.
* Children or dogs playing near the road.
* Pot holes, sewer grating, railroad tracks, expansion joints, road or sidewalk construction, debris and other obstructions
that could cause you to swerve into traffic, catch your wheel or otherwise cause you to lose control and have an accident.
* The many other hazards and distractions which can occur while using the SCOOT - N - GO™ during a ride.
4. Ride on the right side of the road, in the same direction as vehicle traffic and as close to the edge of the road as possible.
5. Stop at stop signs and traffic lights; slow down and look both ways at street intersections. Remember that the
SCOOT - N - GO™ will always lose in a collision with a motor vehicle, so be prepared to yield
even if you have the right of way.
6. Use hand signals for turning and stopping. Learn the local vehicle code for the correct signals.
7. Don't weave through traffic or make any moves that may surprise people with whom you are sharing the road.
8. Never carry anything which obstructs your vision or your complete control of the SCOOT - N - GO™, or which
could become entangled in the moving parts of the SCOOT - N - GO™.
9. Never hitch a ride by holding on to another vehicle.

FLAT TIRE REPAIR
To change a tire or inner tube, it is a good idea to keep the SCOOT - N - GO™ tool kit with you when
you ride. You should also carry plastic "tire levers" (available at local bike shops), a spare inner tube that
fit the wheel and tire size available from Electra at www.electraUSA.com or by calling Customer Service
at 1-888-967-1234 M-F 10am-9pm EST as well as a manual hand pump to re-inflate the tire if you have
a flat or it becomes low during use.
1. Depress the tire valve to let all the air out of the tube.
2. Remove the wheel from the scooter using the wrench provided or your own wrench. Loosen the
nuts by turning counterclockwise. Be sure to remember where all the spacers and washers belong. For
rear tire removal you will also need to slip the chain off the rear sprocket to remove the wheel. The
chain must be properly reinstalled and re-tensioned when reinstalling the rear wheel. Make certain the
chain is properly position on both front and rear sprockets before re-tightening rear wheel.
3. Remove one bead of the tire from the rim by grasping it at a point opposite the valve stem with both
hands and, at the same time, lifting and peeling one side of the tire off the rim. If the bead is on too
tight for you to unseat it with your hands use tire levers to lift the bead carefully over the tire rim. Tire
levers can be purchased at any local bike shop. Push the valve stem through the wheel rim. Remove
the inner tube.
4. Carefully check the outside and inside of the tire for the cause of the puncture and remove any
debris or damaging material from the inside or outside of the tire.

SERVICE & MAINTENANCE
PATCHING A TUBE IS AN EMERGENCY REPAIR. CARELESS PATCHING OR APPLYING SEVERAL PATCHES CAN
SERIOUSLY WEAKEN THE TUBE, RESULTING IN POSSIBLE TUBE FAILURE, WHICH COULD CAUSE YOU TO
LOOSE CONTROL AND FALL. REPLACE A PATCHED TUBE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
5. Reinstall the tire and tube. Slip one tire bead over the rim. Insert the valve stem through its hole in
the rim. Feed the tube carefully into the cavity of the tire. Inflate the tube just enough to give it some
shape. Starting at the valve stem and working around both sides of the rim to the side opposite the
valve stem, use your thumbs to push and seat the other bead of the tire inside the rim. Be careful not to
pinch the tube between the tire bead and the wheel rim. If you have trouble getting the last few
inches of bead over the edge of the rim with thumb pressure, use a tire lever and be careful not to
pinch the tube.
6. Check to make sure that the tire is evenly seated around both sides of the rim and that the tube is
inside the tire beads. Push the valve stem into the tire to make sure that its base is seated within the
tire's beads. Inflate the tube slowly to the recommended pressure on the tire sidewall. Check to make
sure that the tire beads stay seated in the rim. Replace the valve cap. Replace the wheel in the scooter.
RIDING YOUR SCOOT - N - GO™ WITH A CUT TIRE, FLAT OR UNDER- INFLATED TIRE CAN SERIOUSLY
DAMAGE THE TIRE, RIM (WHEEL), TUBE, AND THE SCOOTER. IT MAY ALSO CAUSE YOU TO LOSE
CONTROL AND FALL. IF YOU USE A SCREWDRIVER OR ANY TOOL OTHER THAN A TIRE LEVER, YOU
ARE LIKELY TO PUNCTURE THE TUBE.Replacement parts are able to be purchased by calling the
Electra Customer Service at 1-888-967-1234 M-F 10am - 9pm EST or by visiting Electra's website at
www.electraUSA.com.
DO NOT USE GAS STATION AIR FILLING STATIONS AS THE PRESSURE IS USUALLY TOO HIGH AND THE
GAUGES ARE INACCURATE. OVER INFLATION OF THE TIRE COULD CAUSE A BLOW OUT AND CRASH
