GENERAL
WARNING! Do not operate your new scooter for the first time without completely reading and
understanding this owner’s manual.
Your Legend Classic 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 scooter user. Please be aware that the final
selection and purchasing decision regarding the type of scooter to be used is the responsibility of the 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
scooter to the user and has assisted the prescribing healthcare professional and/or the authorised Pride provider in
the instruction process for the use of the product.
There are certain situations, including some medical conditions, where the scooter user will need to practice
operating the 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 scooter user in various daily living activities.
As you begin using your 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 Legend Classic safely.
MODIFICATIONS
Pride has designed and engineered your Legend Classic to provide maximum mobility and utility. A wide range of
accessories is available from your authorised Pride provider to further customize your 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 Legend Classic.
WARNING! Do not modify your scooter in any way not authorised by Pride. Unauthorised modifications may result in personal injury and/or damage to your scooter.
REMOVABLE PARTS
WARNING! Do not attempt to lift or move your scooter by any of its removable parts. Personal injury
and damage to the scooter may result.

PRE-RIDE SAFETY CHECK
Get to know the feel of your Legend Classic and its capabilities. Pride recommends that you perform a safety
check before each use to make sure your scooter operates smoothly and safely. For details on how to perform
these necessary inspections, see XI. “Care and Maintenance.”
Perform the following inspections prior to using your Legend Classic:
n Check for proper tyre inflation (if equipped with pneumatic tyres).
n Check all electrical connections. Make sure they are tight and not corroded.
n Check all harness connections (battery, front-to-rear). Make sure they are secured properly.
n Check the brakes.
n Check battery charge.
If you discover a problem, contact your authorised Pride provider for assistance.
TYRE INFLATION
If your scooter is equipped with pneumatic tyres, you should check or have the air pressure checked at least once
a week. Proper inflation pressures will prolong the life of your tyres and help ensure the smooth operation of your
scooter.
WARNING! It is critically important that 30-35 psi (2-2.5 bar) tyre pressure be maintained in pneumatic tyres at all times. Failure to maintain 30-35 psi (2-2.5 bar) tyre pressure in pneumatic tyres at
all times may result in catastrophic tyre and/or wheel failure, causing serious personal injury and/or
damage to your scooter.
WARNING! Inflate your scooter drive tyres from a regulated air source with an available pressure
gauge. Maximum air pressure for scooter drive tyres is 30-35 psi (2-2.5 bar). Inflating your tyres from
an unregulated air source could overinflate them, resulting in a burst tyre and/or personal injury.
WEIGHT LIMITATIONS
Your Legend Classic is rated for a 159 kg, 25 stone (350-lb.) maximum weight limit.
WARNING! Exceeding the weight limit voids your warranty and may result in personal injury and
damage to your 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 Legend Classic. 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 scooter.
n Proceed with extreme caution as you approach the downgrade of a ramp or other incline.
n Take wide swings with your scooter’s front wheel(s) around any tight corners. If you do that, the 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 scooter’s speed adjustment set to the slowest speed setting to ensure a
safely controlled descent. See IV. “Your Legend Classic.”
n Avoid sudden stops and starts.
Legend Classic/Rev D/August 03

I I .
S A F E T Y
When climbing an incline, try to keep your 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 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 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! 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 scooter in freewheel mode
while seated on it or standing next to it.
Other inclines may be natural or, if man-made, not designed specifically for scooters. Figures 1 and 1A illustrate
your scooter’s stability and its ability to climb grades under various weight loads and under controlled testing
conditions.
These tests were conducted with the 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 scooter’s ability to travel up inclines is
affected by your weight, your scooter’s speed, your angle of approach to the incline, and your scooter setup.

S A F E T Y
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 scooter toward the front of the scooter for improved stability.
WARNING! Do not exceed the incline guidelines or any other specifications presented in this
manual.
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 scooter from tipping.
WARNING! When cornering sharply, reduce your speed. When using your 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 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.

OUTDOOR DRIVING SURFACES
Your Legend Classic 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 scooter is designed to perform admirably on packed soil,
grass, and gravel. Feel free to use your scooter safely on lawns and in park areas.
n
n
n
n
Reduce your 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.
STATIONARY OBSTACLES (STEPS, KERBS, ETC.)
WARNING! Do not drive near raised surfaces, unprotected ledges, and/or drop-offs (kerbs, porches,
stairs, etc.).
WARNING! Do not attempt to have your 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 scooter proceed rearward down any step, kerb, or other
obstacle. This may cause the scooter to tip and cause personal injury.
WARNING! Be sure your scooter is traveling perpendicular to any kerb you may be required to
ascend or descend. See figures 3 and 3A.
WARNING! Do not attempt to negotiate a kerb that has a height greater than 5 cm (2 in).

STREETS AND ROADWAYS
WARNING! You should not operate your scooter on public streets and roadways. Be aware that it
may be difficult for traffic to see you when you are seated on your 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 authorised Pride provider.
INCLEMENT WEATHER PRECAUTIONS
WARNING! Pride recommends that you do not operate your 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 scooter.
WARNING! Pride recommends that you do not expose your scooter to any type of moisture at any
time (rain, snow, mist, or wash). Such exposure can damage your scooter. Never operate your
scooter if it has been exposed to moisture until it has dried thoroughly.
FREEWHEEL MODE
Your scooter is equipped with a manual freewheel lever that, when pulled up, allows the scooter to be pushed. For
more information about how to place your scooter into and out of freewheel mode, see IV. “Your Legend Classic.”
WARNING! Do not use your scooter in freewheel mode without an attendant present. Personal
injury may result.
WARNING! Do not attempt to place your scooter in freewheel mode while seated on it. Personal
injury may result. Ask an attendant for assistance if necessary.
WARNING! Do not place your scooter in freewheel mode while on an incline. The scooter could roll
uncontrollably on its own, causing personal injury.
An added feature built into the Legend Classic is “push-too-fast” protection which safeguards the 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” when in freewheel mode, the scooter’s controller activates regenerative braking
when the 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 scooter from gaining unwanted momentum should the manual freewheel lever inadvertently
be released while driving the scooter.

STAIRS AND ESCALATORS
Legend Classics are not designed to travel up or down stairs or escalators. Always use a lift.
WARNING! Do not use your scooter to negotiate steps or escalators. You may cause injury to
yourself and to others and damage your Legend Classic.
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 scooter gently and slowly forward to push the door open. Or drive your scooter gently and slowly
rearwards to pull the door open.
LIFTS
Modern lifts have a door edge safety mechanism that, when pushed, reopens the lift door(s).
n If you are in the doorway of a lift when the door(s) begin to close, push on the rubber door edge or allow the
rubber door edge to contact the scooter and the door will reopen.
n Use care that pocketbooks, packages, or scooter accessories do not become caught in lift doors.
LIFT/ELEVATION PRODUCTS
If you will be traveling with your Legend Classic, 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.
BATTERIES
In addition to following the warnings below, be sure to comply with all other battery handling information. For
more information about your Legend Classic’s batteries, see V. “ Batteries and Charging.”
WARNING! Scooter batteries are heavy. Lifting weight beyond your capacity could result in
personal injury. If necessary, get someone physically able to lift the scooters 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.
BATTERY DISPOSAL AND RECYCLING
If you encounter a damaged or cracked battery, immediately enclose it in a plastic bag and call your authorised
Pride provider for instructions on disposal. Your authorised Pride provider will also have the necessary information
on battery recycling, which is our recommended course of action.
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.

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 Legend Classic.
Although your 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 scooter while it is in a moving vehicle. Personal injury and/or property
damage may result.
WARNING! Always be sure your 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 Legend Classic.
GETTING ONTO AND OFF OF YOUR SCOOTER
Getting onto and off of your scooter requires a good sense of balance. Please observe the following safety tips
when getting onto and off of your scooter:
n Ensure that your scooter is not in freewheel mode. See IV. “Your Legend Classic.”
n Make certain that the seat is locked into place and the key is removed from the key switch.
n The seat armrests can be flipped up to make getting onto and off of the scooter easier.
WARNING! Position yourself as far back as possible in the scooter seat to prevent the scooter from
tipping and causing injury.
WARNING! Avoid using your armrests for weight bearing purposes. Such use may cause the
scooter to tip and cause personal injury.
WARNING! Avoid putting all of your weight on the floorboard. Such use may cause the scooter to tip
and cause personal injury.
POSITIONING BELTS
Your authorised Pride provider, therapist(s), and other healthcare professionals are responsible for determining
your requirement for a positioning belt in order to operate your scooter safely.
WARNING! If you require a positioning belt to safely operate your Legend Classic, make sure it is
fastened securely. Serious personal injury may result if you fall from the Legend Classic.

S A F E T Y
REACHING AND BENDING
Avoid reaching or bending while driving your Legend Classic. When reaching, bending, or leaning while seated on
your Legend Classic, it is important to maintain a stable center of gravity and keep the scooter from tipping. Pride
recommends that the 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 scooter and cause your scooter to tip, possibly resulting in
personal injury. Keep your hands away from the tyres when driving.
PRESCRIPTION DRUGS/PHYSICAL LIMITATIONS
The scooter user must exercise care and common sense when operating his/her Legend Classic. This includes awareness of safety issues when taking prescribed or over-the-counter drugs or when the user has specific physical limitations.
WARNING! Consult your physician if you are taking prescribed or over-the-counter medication or if
you have certain physical limitations. Some medications and limitations may impair your ability to
operate your scooter in a safe manner.
ALCOHOL
The scooter user must exercise care and common sense when operating his/her Legend Classic. This includes
awareness of safety issues while under the influence of alcohol.
WARNING! Do not operate your scooter while you are under the influence of alcohol, as this may
impair your ability to drive safely.

BATTERIES
AND
CHARGING
Your Legend Classic requires two sealed, maintenance free, 12-volt, deep cycle batteries.
n Charge the batteries prior to using your scooter for the first time.
n Keeping the batteries fully charged will keep your scooter running smoothly.
READING YOUR BATTERY VOLTAGE
The battery condition meter on the tiller console indicates the approximate strength of your batteries using a colour
code. See figure 7. Green indicates fully charged batteries, yellow indicates a draining charge, and red indicates
that an immediate recharge is necessary. To check the charge, you must first unplug the charger power lead and
power up your scooter.
You can also check the charge using the ammeter located on the rear of the scooter. The charger power lead must
be plugged into a standard wall outlet in order to obtain a reading. When the amperage reading is at or near zero
(0) amps, the battery charging is complete. See figure 8.
FIGURE 7. BATTERY CONDITION METER
FIGURE 8. AMMETER INDICATES
BATTERY IS FULLY CHARGED
CHARGING YOUR BATTERIES
Follow these easy steps to charge your batteries safely:
1. Position your scooter close to a standard wall outlet.
2. Remove the key from the key switch.
3. Make certain that the manual freewheel lever is in the drive (down) position.
4. Plug the appropriate end of the off-board charger into the off-board charger port. See figure 9.
WARNING! Never use an extension lead to plug in your battery charger. Plug the charger directly
into a properly wired standard wall outlet.
5. Extend the charger power lead and plug it into the wall outlet. It is recommended that you charge your batteries for 8
to 14 hours.
6. When the batteries are fully charged, unplug the charger
power lead from the wall outlet and then from the off-board
charger port.
THE OFF-BOARD CHARGER
PLUGS INTO THIS PORT
NOTE: There is a charger inhibit function on your scooter.

CHARGING
BATTERIES AND CHARGING-FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQS)
How does the charger work?
When your scooter’s battery voltage is low, the charger works harder and sends more electrical current to the
batteries to bring up their charge. As the voltage of the batteries approaches a full charge, the charger sends less
and less electrical current to the batteries. When the batteries are fully charged, the current sent to them from the
charger is at nearly zero amperage. Therefore, when the charger is plugged in, it maintains the charge on your
scooter’s batteries, but does not overcharge them. We do not recommend that you charge your scooter’s batteries
for more than 24 consecutive hours.
What if the scooter’s batteries won’t charge?
n Be sure the battery cables are connected properly.
n Ensure both ends of the charger lead are inserted fully.
Can I use a different charger?
For the safest, most efficient and balanced charging of your scooter’s batteries, we prefer and highly recommend
the simultaneous charging of both batteries by use of the off-board battery charger.
How often must I charge the batteries?
Two major factors must be considered when deciding how often to charge your scooter’s batteries:
n All day scooter use on a daily basis.
n Infrequent or sporadic scooter use.
With these considerations in mind, you can determine just how often and for how long you should charge your
scooter’s batteries. We designed the off-board charger so that it will not overcharge your scooter’s batteries (do
not charge them for more than 24 consecutive hours). 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 scooter daily, charge its batteries as soon as you finish using it for the day. Your scooter will be
ready each morning to give you a “full day” of service. We recommend that you charge your scooter’s batteries
for 8 to 14 hours after daily use.
n If you use your 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 scooter’s batteries fully charged.
n Avoid deeply discharging your scooter’s batteries.
n Do not charge your scooter’s batteries for more than 24 consecutive hours.

BATTERIES
AND
CHARGING
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. You will
often face hills, pavement cracks, uneven and loosely packed surfaces, curves, and wind. All of these driving conditions
affect the distance or running time per battery charge. Below are a few suggestions for obtaining the maximum range
per battery charge.
n Always fully charge your scooter’s batteries prior to your daily use.
n Maintain 30-35 psi in all of your scooter tyres.
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 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 sealed lead-acid and gel cell are
deep-cycle batteries that are similar in performance. Do not use wet-cell batteries, which have removable caps.
CAUTION! Do not remove the caps from sealed batteries. Water cannot be added to sealed batteries. Cap removal voids the battery warranty and may cause damage to the batteries and to your
scooter.
Use these specifications to reorder deep-cycle batteries:
Type:
Deep-cycle (sealed lead-acid or gel cell)
Size:
U-1, 32 AH
Voltage:
12 volts each
Amperage:
32 AH (amp hours)
To change a battery in your scooter:
WARNING! Battery posts, terminals, and related accessories contain lead and lead compounds.
Wash hands after handling.
1. Remove the seat and the rear shroud. See VIII. “Disassembly and Assembly.”
2. Disconnect the battery strap.
3. Disconnect the 2-pin, black and white battery harness from its mating plug. See figure 15 in VIII. “Disassembly
and Assembly.”
4. Disconnect the battery cables from the battery terminals.
5. Remove the old battery.
6. Place a new battery in the battery well.
7. Connect the red battery cable to the positive (+) battery terminal.
8. Connect the black battery cable to the negative (-) battery terminal.
9. Reconnect the 2-pin, black and white battery harness to its mating plug.
10. Reconnect the battery strap.
11. Reinstall the rear shroud and seat.
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), or in other common battery types. Deep-cycle batteries are specifically designed to provide power, drain
down their charge, and then accept a relatively quick recharge.

AND
CHARGING
We work closely with our battery manufacturer to provide batteries that best suit your 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 may 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 scooter’s batteries to stabilise and adjust to their new room or
ambient temperature.
More importantly, it takes a few charging cycles (a partial drain followed by a full recharge) to establish the critical
chemical balance that is essential to a deep-cycle battery’s peak performance and long life.
Please follow these steps to properly break in your 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 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 scooter’s controls and have properly
broken in your scooter’s batteries.
3. Fully recharge the batteries. They should be at over 90% of their peak performance level.
4. Operate your 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 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 scooter and its batteries?
If you plan on not using your scooter for an extended period of time, it is best to:
n Fully charge its batteries prior to storage.
n Disconnect the battery harnesses.
n Store your scooter in a warm dry environment.
n Avoid storing your scooter where it will be exposed to temperature extremes.
WARNING! If your scooter’s batteries do become frozen, do not attempt to charge them. Cold or
frozen batteries should be allowed to warm up for several days prior to recharging.
For prolonged storage, you may wish to place several boards under the frame of your scooter to raise the scooter off
of the ground. This takes the weight off of the tyres and reduces the possibility of flat spots developing on the areas
of the tyres contacting the ground.
What about public transportation?
If you intend to use public transportation while using your scooter, you must contact in advance the transportation
provider to determine their specific requirements.

Any electromechanical device occasionally requires some troubleshooting. However, most of the problems that
may arise can usually 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.
What if all the systems on my scooter seem to be “dead”?
n Make certain that the key is in the “on” position.
n Check that the batteries are fully charged. See V. “Batteries and Charging.”
n Push in the main circuit breaker reset button. See IV. “Your Legend Classic.”
n Make certain that both battery harnesses are firmly connected to their mating plugs and to the battery terminals. See VIII. “Disassembly and Assembly.”
n Make sure that the front-to-rear harness is firmly connected to its mating plug. See VIII. “Disassembly and Assembly.”
n Check the 3-amp fuse located on the lower portion of the tiller console. See XI. “Care and Maintenance” for
fuse replacement.
n Be sure the power down timer feature hasn’t been activated. See Power Down Timer Feature” below.
POWER DOWN TIMER FEATURE
Your scooter is equipped with an energy saving automatic power down timer feature designed to preserve your
scooter’s battery life. If you mistakenly leave the key in the key switch and in the “on” position but do not use your
scooter for approximately 20 minutes, the scooter’s controller shuts down automatically. Although the controller is
shut down and the scooter will not move, power will still be supplied to the scooter’s lighting system.
When the power down timer feature takes effect, perform the following steps to resume normal operation.
1. Turn the key to the “off” position.
2. Turn the key back to the “on” position.
What if my scooter does not move when I press the throttle control levers?
n When the manual freewheel lever is pulled up, the brakes are disengaged and all power to the motor/transaxle
assembly is cut.
n Push down on the manual freewheel lever, turn the scooter off, and then turn the scooter back on to return to
normal operation.
What if the main circuit breaker repeatedly trips? See IV. “Your Legend Classic.”
n Charge the scooter’s batteries more frequently. See V. “Batteries and Charging.”
n If the problem continues, have both of your scooter’s batteries load tested by your authorised Pride provider.
n You may also perform the load test yourself. Battery load testers are available at most automotive parts stores.
Follow the directions supplied with the load tester.
n See V. “Batteries and Charging” or III. “Specifications” for information about your scooter’s battery type.
What if the battery condition meter dips way down and the motor surges or hesitates when I press my
scooter’s throttle control lever? (See IV. “Your Legend Classic.”)
n Fully charge your scooter’s batteries. See V. “Batteries and Charging.”
n Have your authorised Pride provider load test each battery.
n Or, see the previous troubleshooting question for load testing the batteries yourself.
If you experience any problems with your scooter that you are not able to solve, immediately contact your authorised
Pride provider for information, maintenance, and service.

Your 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 authorised Pride
provider. The following areas require periodic inspection and/or care and maintenance.
TYRE PRESSURE
n If equipped with pneumatic tyres, always maintain a proper 30-35 psi (2-2.5 bar) tyre pressure.
WARNING! Do not exceed 30-35 psi in your scooter tires. Overinflating a tire can cause it to explode, possibly resulting in personal injury or damage to your scooter.
n Regularly inspect your scooter’s tyres for signs of wear.
EXTERIOR SURFACES
Bumpers, tyres, and trim can benefit from an occasional application of rubber or vinyl conditioner.
WARNING! Do not use a rubber or vinyl conditioner on the scooter’s vinyl seat or tyre tread; they
will become dangerously slippery.
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 scooter.
WIRING HARNESSES
n Regularly check all wiring connections.
n Regularly check all wiring insulation, including the charger power lead, for wear or damage.
n Have your authorised Pride provider repair or replace any damaged connector, connection, or insulation that
you find before using your 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
