Safety Warnings
WARNING: Riding the electric scooter can be a hazardous activity.
Certain conditions may cause the equipment to fail without fault of the
manufacturer. Like other electric products, the scooter can and is intended
to move, and it is therefore possible to lose control, fall off and/or get into
dangerous situations that no amount of care, instruction or expertise can
eliminate. If such things occur you can be seriously injured or die, even when
using safety equipment and other precautions. RIDE AT YOUR OWN RISK
AND USE COMMON SENSE.
Keep your fingers and other body parts away from the chain, drive chain,
steering system, wheels and all other moving components.
Never use headphones or a cell phone when riding.
Never hitch a ride with another vehicle.
Do not ride your scooter in wet or icy weather and never immerse the scooter
in water, as the electrical and drive components could be damaged by water
or create other possibly unsafe conditions.
This manual contains many warnings and cautions concerning the
consequences of failing to maintain, inspect or properly use your electric
scooter. Because any incident can result in serious injury or even death, we
do not repeat the warning of possible serious injury or death each time such
a possibility is mentioned.
The electric scooter is intended for use on flat, dry surfaces such as
pavement or level ground without loose debris such as sand, leaves, rocks or
gravel. Wet, slick, bumpy, uneven or rough surfaces may impair traction and
contribute to possible accidents. Do not ride your scooter in mud, ice, puddles
or water. Avoid excessive speeds that can be associated with downhill rides.
Never risk damaging surfaces such as carpet or flooring by using the electric
scooter indoors.
APPROPRIATE RIDER USE AND
PARENTAL SUPERVISION
This manual contains important safety information. It is your responsibility
to review this information and make sure that all riders understand all
warnings, cautions, instructions and safety topics and assure that young
riders are able to safely and responsibly use this product. Razor recommends
that you periodically review and reinforce the information in this manual
with younger riders, and that you inspect and maintain your children’s
scooter to insure their safety.
Do not ride at night or when visibility is limited.
PROPER RIDING ATTIRE
Always wear proper protective equipment such as an approved safety helmet
(with chin strap securely buckled). A helmet may be legally required by local
law or regulation in your area. Elbow and kneepads, a long-sleeved shirt,
long pants, and gloves are recommended. Always wear athletic shoes (laceup shoes with rubber soles), never ride barefooted or in sandals, and keep
shoelaces tied and out of the way of the wheels, motor and drive system.
The recommended rider age is 13 and older. Any rider unable to fit
comfortably on the scooter should not attempt to ride it. A parent’s decision
to allow his or her child to ride this product should be based on the child’s
maturity, skill and ability to follow rules.
USING THE CHARGER
The charger supplied with the electric scooter should be regularly examined
for damage to the cord, plug, enclosure and other parts, and in the event of
such damage, the scooter must not be charged until the charger has been
repaired or replaced.
Keep this product away from small children and remember that it is
intended for use only by persons who are, at a minimum, completely
comfortable and competent while operating the scooter.
DO NOT EXCEED THE WEIGHT LIMIT OF 220 pounds (100kg). Rider weight
does not necessarily mean a person’s size is appropriate to fit or maintain
control of the scooter.
Use only with the recommended charger.
Do not touch the brakes or motor on your scooter when in use or directly
after use as these parts can become very hot.
The charger is not a toy. Charger should be operated by an adult.
Use caution when charging.
Do not operate charger near flammable materials.
ACCEPTABLE RIDING PRACTICES AND
CONDITIONS
Always check and obey any local laws or regulations which may
affect the locations where the electric scooter may be used.
Ride defensively. Watch out for potential obstacles that could catch your
wheel or force you to swerve suddenly or lose control. Be careful to avoid
pedestrians, skaters, skateboards, scooters, bikes, children or animals who
may enter your path, and respect the rights and property of others.
Unplug charger and disconnect from scooter when not in use.
Do not exceed charging time.
Always disconnect from the charger prior to wiping down and cleaning your
scooter with liquid.
FAILURE TO USE COMMON SENSE AND HEED THE ABOVE
WARNINGS INCREASES RISK OF SERIOUS INJURY. USE WITH
APPROPRIATE CAUTION AND SERIOUS ATTENTION TO SAFE
OPERATION.
Do not activate the speed control on the hand grip unless you are on the
scooter and in a safe, outdoor environment suitable for riding.
Do not attempt or do stunts or tricks on your electric scooter. This scooter is
not made to withstand abuse from misuse such as jumping, curb grinding or
any other type of stunts.
Maintain a hold on the handlebars at all times.
Never carry passengers or allow more than one person at a time to ride the
scooter.
Never use near steps or swimming pools.
1
Before You Begin
Remove contents from box. Remove the foam separators that protect the components from damage during
shipping. Inspect the contents of the box for scratches in the paint, dents or kinked cables that may have
occurred during shipping. Because the scooter is 95 percent assembled and packed at the factory, there
should not be any problems, even if the box has a few scars or dents.
MAKE SURE POWER SWITCH IS TURNED “OFF” BEFORE CONDUCTING ANY ASSEMBLY
OR MAINTENANCE PROCEDURES.
Estimated Assembly and Set-Up Time
Allow up to 20 minutes for assembly, not including initial charge time.
Allow up to 18 hours for initial charge (see page 3 for charging information)

Assembly and Set-Up
q Attaching the Handlebars
1 Loosen the locking knob and
swing to the 6 o’clock position
to unfold the handlebar.
4 Using a 6mm hexagonal
key wrench, tighten the
wedge by turning the bolt
clockwise. The wedge is
properly tightened when the
handlebars cannot be twisted
out of alignment with the
front wheel.
Note: Make sure the cables/
wires are out of the way before
inserting the stem in the fork.
3 Slide the quill into the
fork until it bottoms on the
headset.
2 Remove the plastic protector covering the base of the
handlebar assembly. Insert the
“quill” part of the handlebar
assembly into the fork. You may
have to loosen the wedge to
allow it to slip into the fork.
WARNING: Failure
to properly tighten the wedge
may allow the handlebars to
dislodge while riding and may
cause you to lose control and
fall. When correctly tightened,
the handlebars will not rotate
out of alignment with the
front wheel under normal
circumstances.
WARNING: Keep your
fingers clear of the pivoting
mechanism when folding or
unfolding the scooter, and make
sure others are standing clear.
5 Pivot the handlebar assembly upright.
6 Swing the locking knob to
the 12 o’clock position and
tighten by hand as firmly as
possible.
q Inflating the Tires
Tires are inflated when shipped, but they invariably lose some pressure between the point of
manufacturing and your purchase. Always inflate tires to the correct PSI before first time use.
Rear Tire
Note: The cable and wire
assembly from the handlebar
must not wrap around the
steering tube or handlebar
as shown in step 3. Sharp
bends or twisting of the brake
cable can cause the brakes to
malfunction.
WARNING: Failure
to remove the valve adapter
after inflating will cause the
inner tube and/or adapter to
be severed by the rear drive
sprocket.
Note: If you lose the valve
extender, one can be purchased
at almost any auto parts store.
1 Use the valve extender
located inside the end of the
right handlebar grip.
3 Remove valve extender
immediately after inflating and
close the round cover.
2 Open the round cover
located on the chain cover
by sliding the cover upward.
Align the opening in the drive
sprocket with the valve stem.
Thread the adapter completely
onto the valve stem and attach
the pump. Inflate to the PSI
indicated on the tire sidewall.
3
Note: The pressurized air
supplies found at gasoline
stations are designed to inflate
high-volume automobile tires.
If you decide to use such an air
supply to inflate your electric
scooter tires, first make sure
the pressure gauge is working,
then use very short bursts to
inflate to the correct PSI. If you
inadvertently over-inflate the
tire, release the excess pressure
immediately.
Assembly and Set-Up
Front Tire
4 Using a bicycle style tire pump
equipped for a Schrader-type
valve, inflate the front tire to the
PSI indicated on the sidewall of
the tire.
q Attaching the Seat (if applicable)
1 Attach the seat to the
seat post with two 4mm key
wrenches.
2 Unscrew the four screws on

the middle of the deck with the
4mm key wrench and the phillips screwdriver.
Note: Do not completely tighten at this time. Adjust the seat tilt approximately level to the ground, or
slightly tilted depending on your personal preference. Tighten securely. The seat tilt adjustment should
not move when riding.
q Charging the Battery
Your electric scooter may not have a fully charged battery. Therefore it is a good idea to charge the battery
prior to use.
•Initial charge time: 18 hours
•Recharge time: up to 12 hours
When the scooter is not in regular
use, recharge the battery at least
once a month until normal use is
resumed.
• Run time: Up to 40 minutes of continuous ride time
• Average battery life: 250 charge/discharge cycles
WARNING: Always
disconnect your scooter from
the charger before cleaning with
liquid.
Note: If your charger does not
look like the one illustrated,
your unit has been supplied
with an alternative charger.
The specifications and charging
procedure would not change.
The charger has a small window
with one LED or two LEDs to
indicate the charge status.
Refer to the illustration on
the charger unit for the actual
“charging” and “charged” status
indications for your model
charger.
Charger
Chargers have built-in overcharge protection to prevent
battery from being over-charged.
Charger
Plug
Charger will get warm during
use. This is normal for some
chargers and is no cause for
concern. If your charger does
not get warm during use, it does
not mean that it is not working
properly.
Charger
Port
1 Turn OFF power switch before
charging. Plug the charger into
the charger port on the electric
scooter.
2 Plug the charger into a wall
outlet. If the lights on charger
do not light up, check the power
to the outlet. If necessary, try a
different outlet.
WARNING: Failure
to recharge the battery at least
once a month may result in
a battery that will no longer
accept a charge.

CONNECTORS/HARDWARE MAINTENANCE
q
Brake
q
q
Frame, Fork and Handlebars
q
q
Tires
Check the brakes for proper function. When you squeeze the lever,
the brake should provide positive braking action. When you apply
the brake with the speed control on, the brake cut-off switch
should stop the motor. Make sure that brakes are not rubbing.
Check for cracks or broken connections. Although broken frames
are rare, it is possible for an aggressive rider to run into a curb
or wall and wreck and bend or break a frame. Get in the habit of
inspecting your scooter on a regular basis.
Safety Gear
Always wear proper protective gear such as an approved safety
helmet. Elbow pads and kneepads are recommended. Always
wear athletic shoes (lace-up shoes with rubber soles), never ride
barefooted or in sandals, and keep shoelaces tied and out of the
way of the wheels, motor and drive system.
Battery
Make sure the power switch is turned off whenever the scooter is
not in use. Never store the product in freezing or below freezing
temperatures! Freezing will permanently damange the battery.
Periodically inspect the tires for excess wear, and regularly check
the tires pressure and re-inflate as necessary.
Do not use this product for the first time until you have inflated the
tires to the correct PSI and charged the battery for at least 18 hours.
Failure to follow these instructions may damage
your product and void your warranty.
Repair and Maintenance
Turn power switch “OFF” before conducting any maintenance procedures.
q Adjusting the Brakes
Tools required: 10mm open wrench
1 To adjust the brake cable
play, thread the brake lever
adjuster in or out 1/4 to 1/2
turn until the desired brake
adjustment is attained. Most
adjustments are complete at
this step. If brake still needs
further adjustment, proceed to
step 2.
2 If the brake is too tight or too
loose, use a 10mm open wrench
to loosen the nut for additional
adjustment on the brake cable.
Securely tighten the nut when
finished.
5
WARNING:
The brake is capable of skidding
the rear tire and throwing an
unsuspecting rider. Practice
in an open area free from
obstacles until you are familiar
with the brake function. Avoid
skidding to a stop as this can
cause you to lose control and/or
damage the rear tire.

Repair and Maintenance
q Adjusting the Chain
Tools required: 10mm wrench, two (2) 8mm wrenches, and two (2) 17mm wrenches.
1 Using two 17mm wrench-
es, loosen the rear axle bolts
by turning the wrenches
counter clockwise.
2 Using two 8mm wrenches,
loosen the brake housing
anchor bolt which is located
in the long slot on the left
side of the rear fork.
3 Using a 10mm wrench,
tighten the tension adjusters on the axle 1/8 to 1/4
turn to fine-tune the chain
tension. Both adjusters must
be tightened the exact same
amount to maintain wheel
alignment.
Note: This system of adjusters
is common to motorcycles
and BMX bicycles. If you are
not familiar with it or do not
feel comfortable performing
the adjustment, consult an
authorized Razor service center
or a qualified BMX bike or
motorcycle mechanic.
The chain should be “just taut”
– in other words snug, but not
piano-wire tight. The tension
should be similar to the fan
chain on an automobile. BE
CAREFUL NOT TO ADJUST TOO
TIGHT. The tensioning system
can easily impart too much
tension and snap the chain or
bend the motor shaft. Adjust
1/8 to 1/4 turn at a time and
check the tension each time.
4 Once the tension is
correct, tighten the axle bolts
and brake housing anchor
bolt. Test ride the scooter.
Readjust as needed.

Troubleshooting Guide
Problem
Possible Cause
Solution
Scooter does not run
Undercharged battery
Charge the battery. A new battery should be charged for at least 18
hours before using the scooter for the first time and up to 12 hours
after each subsequent use.
Check all connectors. Make sure the charger connector is tightly
plugged into the charging port, and that the charger is plugged into
the wall.
Scooter suddenly stopped
working while in use
Tripped circuit breaker
Check all wires and connectors to make sure they are tight.
The circuit breaker (next to on/off switch) will automatically shut off
the power if the motor is overloaded.
An excessive overload, such as too heavy a rider or too steep a hill,
could cause the motor to overheat. If the scooter suddenly stops
running, wait a few seconds and then push the breaker to reset the
circuit. Correct the conditions that caused the breaker to trip and
avoid repeatedly tripping the breaker.
Short run time (less than 15 Undercharged battery
minutes per charge)
Charge the battery. A new battery should be charged for at least 18
hours before using the scooter for the first time and up to 12 hours
after each subsequent use.
Check all wires and connectors. Make sure the battery connector is
tightly plugged into the charger connector, and that the charger is
plugged into the wall.
Scooter runs sluggishly
Battery is old and will not accept
full charge
Make sure power flow to the wall outlet is on.
Brakes are not adjusted properly
Refer to adjusting the brakes instructions on page 5.
Riding conditions are too stressful
Use only on solid, flat, clean and dry surfaces such as pavement or
level ground.
Tires are not properly inflated
The tires are inflated when shipped, but they invariably will lose
some pressure between the point of manufacturing and your
purchase. Refer to instructions on page 3 of this manual to properly
inflate tires.
Scooter is overloaded
Make sure you do not overload the electric scooter by allowing more
than one rider at a time, exceeding the 220 lbs. (100kg.) maximum
weight limit, going up a hill or towing objects behind the scooter. If
the scooter is overloaded, the circuit breaker may trip and shut off
power to the motor. Correct the riding conditions that caused the
overload, wait a few seconds, and then push the breaker to reset the
circuit. Avoid repeatedly tripping the circuit breaker.
Brake dragging
Adjust brake at lever (page 5) to allow wheel to spin without brake
contact.
Brakes are not adjusted properly
Refer to adjusting the brakes instructions on page 5.
Even with proper care, a rechargeable battery does not last forever.
Average battery life is 1 to 2 years depending on scooter use and
conditions. Replace only with a Razor replacement battery.
Check all wires around the motors and all connectors to make sure
they are tight.
Loose wires or connectors
Sometimes the scooter
doesn’t run, but other times
it does
Motor or electrical switch damage
Scooter makes loud noises
or grinding sounds
