Your scooter is delivered fully assembled, fitting the two batteries and the seat assembly together
with some minor adjustments are detailed on the following pages, under "Operating your
scooter". A full technical specification for your scooter can be found at the rear of this manual.
A great deal of thought has gone into the design of your four wheeled vehicle which will allow
you to negotiate obstacles found in confined shopping areas. Also, the four wheels will give you
added stability on uneven surface. This is just one of the features you will find on your scooter.
Others are:
COMFORT - The contoured seat giving you day-long comfort. A fully proportional speedcontroller with a speed restriction facility allows you a smooth, safe jerk-free ride.
Caution: DO NOT switch "off" the on/off power key when you are moving; this will
automatically apply the motor parking brake suddenly and could place you in a dangerous
situation. Your scooter is fitted with anti-tipping wheels. DO NOT remove these anti-tipping
wheels, they are an important part of the scooter design provided specifically for your safety.
7
COMFORT ADJUSTMENTS
Before setting out on your scooter, you need to make sure that your seat is in the correct driving
position. Your local dealer will set the seat to the correct height for your individual needs. The
seat has four basic adjustments to assist your comfort.
1. Seat Lock Lever: This allows the seat to swivel through 360o. It can be re-located on the right
side for your convenience. Pull up fully to release the seat allowing rotation. Release level to lock
the seat into the desired position.
!
Warning: When driving, the seat should be
locked in the straight ahead position.
Caution: The seat locking level must lock be
lifted up fully when rotating the seat, failure to
observe this may result in unnecessary wear of
the seat post.
Removing seat from Scooter: The seat mounting post is designed with a special safety
lifting point, this will prevent the seat from inadvertently dismounting itself in the case
only be demounted by turning the 90 the forward driving position.
!
Warning: The seat base has a series of threaded holes for universal mounting, on no
account must your scooter seat be relocated from the original factory setting. Failure to
observe this warning will put you into an unstable and dangerous situation which
could cause you harm.
2. Armrest Width Adjustment: On each side at the rear of the seat you will find a large
black knob. By simply loosening this knob you are able to slide the armrests in or out to
whatever width you desire. Re-tighten the knobs fully. You may need a friend to assist
you with this initial setting up operation. This may extend the width of your scooter.
Caution: The backrest of your seat will not
fully fold forwards if armrests are positioned
too closely towards one another.
!
Warning: DO NOT drive your scooter with the
arms removed or in the raised position.
3. Armrest Angle Adjustment: The armrest angle can be adjusted individually to suit
your needs. To make adjustments to the armrest angle you will need two 13mm spanners
(not provided). Lift the arm upwards, and you will find the adjusting bolt. First loosen the
locking nut, rotate the bolt in or out until the required angle is found, lower the arm and
check the angle for comfort; re-adjust as necessary. Finally tighten the locking nut.
8
!
Warning: When lowering the arm make certain
clothing or fingers are not positioned under it.
4. Seat Height Adjustment: You may need to alter the seat height setting at a later date, please
follow these instructions.
1) Remove your seat from the scooter by lifting the seat
locking lever and lifting the seat clear of the scooter.
Note your seat for safety reasons can only be removed
when it is Turned 90o. Please take care when lifting
heavy weights. Place your seat on a soft clean work
area.
2) With the aid of a 17mm spanner (not supplied) loosen
the 10mm seat clamp fixing bolt.
3) Remove the 10mm fixing bolt and reposition the
bolt into one of the four preferred location holes
of the seat mounting tube.
4) Re-tighten the 10mm fixing bolt. Refit the seat onto your scooter.
!
Warning: DO NOT have the seat set too high, you must be able to place both feet
firmly on the scooter's floor area. Stability will be reduced the higher your seat is set on
the mounting tube. ALWAYS take great care when cornering, lean into the corner to
achieve the best stability from your scooter.
5. Seat Slide Of The Seat: Located on the right front
side of the seat. The lever allows you to adjust your
seat forwards and backwards when sitting on the seat.
Simply pull up the lever and move in the desired
position backward by pushing or forward by hitching.
As soon as the lever is released, the seat will lock into
the new position.
Caution: The best the seat has fully locked
by hitching backwards and forwards.
9
!
Warning: DO NOT carry out this operation when your scooter is moving, first stop
apply the brakes and then carry out the seat position.
CAPTAIN SEAT
The seat as fitted to your scooter, has a fold down backrest. The seat has four height positions
similar to those found on the standard seat. Your local dealer set position the seat to allow you the
most comfortable driving position.
6. Backrest Angle Adjustment: The angle of your backrest can be adjusted to a comfortable
driving position by the operation of the lever situated on the left side of your seat. When sitting
on your seat, lean backwards against the backrest and at the same time lift the operation lever
upwards. Lean forwards or backwards once the locking mechanism has released, positioning
the backrest in a comfortable driving position. Releasing the lever will lock the backrest in your
chosen position.
Caution: Care should be taken during this operation as the backrest mechanism has a
strong assisting spring to aid movement.
Please Note: Damage can result the mechanism if the backrest is not supported during
this operation.
7. Backrest Height Adjustment: The upper cushion of
your backrest can be adjustment for height, giving you
more back support if you are tall, by operating the small
latch cushion up or push down for the most comfortable
position. The headrest will also lift out for convenience.
HANDLEBAR ADJUSTMENT
The handlebar of your scooter is designed to allow you to position it in a comfortable driving
position. It can be locked into numberous positions or unlocked to move freely for transportation.
The handlebar lock is operated by a black lever positioned on the right hand side of the handlebar.
To release the handlebar from a locked position pull the black lever upwards, the handlebar will
now move freely, but under mild tension.
To lock the handlebar into a comfortable driving
position, simply push the black lever downwards until
the handlebar is locked firmly into position.
With the combination of the height adjustment together
with the handlebar movement, you should find a suitably
comfortable driving position.
Warning: ALWAYS make certain the handlebar
locking lever is fully down and the handlebar
is securely clamped onto the chrome support
plates before driving your scooter. To make
service adjustment of this part, refer to the Care
and Maintenance section of this manual.

Your controls are located on the handlebar console they are:
1. Speed Adjustment Dial: This allows you to pre-select your desired top speed. The dial is
proportional to speed and can be set anywhere between minimum ("min") and maximum ("max")
increments. Turn the dial knob anticlockwise to minimum for a very gentle operation, and
clockwise towards maximum to increase your speed.
NOTE: When attempting to climb obstacles, you will need to set the dial to a high setting.
Remember the higher position you set your speed dial to, the faster your scooter will travel.
2. Horn Buttons: Sounds a polite warning signal.
3. On-Off Power Switch: Located at the right side of the control console. Insert the key and turn
clockwise. You will note after a second the needle on the battery state indicator moves towards
the green sector and the green status light illuminates. Your scooter is now ready to drive. To
switch off your machine turn the key anticlockwise. Remove the key when your scooter is left
unattended. DO NOT attach heavy additional keys to your key ring, the weight can damage the
switch unit.
11
Caution: DO NOT switch to "off" when your scooter is moving. Failure to observe
this warning will result in the motor brake being applied suddenly and placing you in a
dangerous situation.
Yoou should only switch "off" when in motion in the case of an emergency. Continual use in this
mode may cause undue stress to the drive system and damage the main electronic speed control
unit. Be extremely cautious on slopes. Sit upright in your seat or your machine could become less
stable.
Sleep Time: When you rest your scooter with the electronics switched "on" you are using
valuable battery power. Your scooter will automatically go into a sleep mode to preserve battery
energy after approximately 15 minutes, the battery indicator and green status light goes off. To
start your scooter again simply switch the key switch to "off" and back to "on" again, your scooter
is now ready to go.
4. Status Light: When you turn your scooter on, the green light on your console will illuminate
at a constant rate. The status light is connected to a very sophisticated diagnostic system which
can identify faults which could occur on the main speed control system or some other part of your
scooter's electronic drive system. For instance if your batteries run low in power, the status light
will flash slowly at one flash a second; this indicates your batteries need recharging.
If you notice the status light flashing at two flashes per second, you are being notified that the
battery voltage is too low and you must stop using your scooter at the earliest opportunity.
Your status light has nine similar flashing diagnostic signals, reference to these diagnostic codes
is found under "Fault Finding" at the rear of this manual.
5. Battery Condition Indicator: Located at the top of your console. When your scooter is
switched on, the needle on the gauge will move across the scale from the left "red" sector towards
the "green" sector, indicating the state of charge in your batteries. As the power is used up in your
batteries the needle will move towards the red sector indicating the state of charge at that precise
time. When the needle is fully over to the right (green sector), the batteries are fully charged.
When the needle falls towards the red sector your batteries are losing power, but you will still
have power to spare. When the needle falls into the red sector your batteries are low in power
and need to be re-charged, although you will still have approximately half-an-hours normal flat
pavement driving in reserve. It is not recommended to use this power regularly as it will shorten
battery life. It is wise to re- charge your batteries when the needle enters the red zone.
NOTE: When driving up a slope or similar obstacle your scooter will be working hard, the
battery gauge will move into the red sector, it will return towards the green sector once the load
on your motor is reduced, this does not indicate low batteries.
6. Front/Rear Light Switch: This rocker tyre switch controls the function of the front and rear
lights. Simply push down on the left side (white spot) for "on" and the right side for "off".
7. Direction Indicator Light Switch: Located at the bottom right of your console, the direction
indicator lights for right and left manoeuvres are controlled by this switch. When making a
turning manoeuvre on the road the appropriate switch dissection warning light will flash. To
cancel the direction indicator return the switch to the centre position. The left direction indicators
are activated by "flicking" the switch to the left.
12
Caution: Please note the direction indicators are not self-canceling.
!
Warning: Please be aware to test the function of your direction light before each
journey. Failure to observe this warning could put you and other road users into a
dangerous situation.
8. Hazard Warning: Positioned to the bottom left o your console, when pressed this red
triangular button activates all of the amber flashing direction lights to warn other road users that
you are stationary or in distress. This function should only be used in emergencies. You will note
that both green direction lights at the top of your console are flashing to warn you the hazard
system is in operation. To cancel the hazard warning simply press and release the red triangular
button.
FORWARD, REVERSE CONTROL LEVER (Wig wag)
Located under the handlebar grips. Your
speed for forwards and reverse motion and
braking is controlled here. The right thumb
lever moves your scooter in a forwards
direction and also controls the rate of speed
by the proportional amount of pressure
applied.
The left thumb lever moves the Scooter in
a reverse direction and controls the rate of
speed by the pressure applied. The lever
when released will return itself, and you
will gently stop. You will note that you
can obtain the reverse of this procedure
by pulling the levers backwards with your
thumb.
13
FREEWHEELING YOUR SCOOTER
If for reasons of convenience, you require to push your scooter for a short distance, the drive
system can be put into "freewheel mode". This will allow your scooter to roll freely.
Freewheel Procedure:
The freewheel device is a red lever located at the rear right hand side of your scooter.
To freewheel your scooter first switch off the power switch located on the scooter's control
console.
Pull up the disengage lever until a distinct click is felt. You can now push your scooter with ease.
DISENGAGE
BRAKE
Please note, in this mode with the power switch in the off
position, the braking safety system is automatically activated
when the scooter is pushed quicker than walking speed, this
is an automatic "run away" safety checking system, it also
reduces the risk of casual theft.
Note: The quicker you push your scooter the heavier the
brake will be applied.
To re-engage the drive system, simply push backwards on the red handled lever until a distinct
click is felt. Switch the power switch on your console off and then on, the green status light will
be fully illuminated and you will be able to drive your scooter once again.
ENGAGE

attempting to drive your scooter after it has been left unattended for a period of time.
Failure to observe this warning may result in an accident.
Note: If you are able to push your scooter the drive system is disconnected, DO NOT attempt to
drive your scooter. Please check once again the above mentioned procedure for re-engaging the
drive.
!
Warning: If your batteries are disconnected from your scooter, there will be no brake
function in the freewheel mode. DO NOT leave your scooter unattended in this situation
as it could roll away causing damage to other parties or property. ALWAYS re-engage
the drive system when left unattended.

SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS & WARNING
!
Warning: DO NOT attempt to operate your new scooter for the first time without
completely reading and understanding all of the facts in this User's Instruction Manual.
Your scooter is a state-of-the-art device designed to enhance and increase your mobility.
Dealer provides a range of scooters to best suit the individual needs and circumstance of the
scooter user.
Please be aware that the final selection and purchasing decision regarding the model of scooter
to be used is the responsibility of the scooter user who is capable of making such a decision with
assistance from his/her healthcare professional (i.e. medical doctor, physical therapist etc.) The
contents of this User's Instruction Manual are based on the expectation that the mobility device
expert has properly fitted the scooter to the user and has assisted the prescribing healthcare
professional and/or the authorised dealer in the instruction process for the safe use of the scooter.
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.
When you begin to use your scooter, you will probably encounter situations in which you will
need some practice. Simply take your time and you will soon become confident and in control as
you maneuver through doorways, on and off elevators, up and down ramps and over moderate
terrain. Below are some tips, precautions and other safety measures that will help you to become
accustomed to the safe operation of your scooter. Your scooter is fitted with a number of "Safety
Warning Instruction" labels. These labels communicate important warnings or instructions. Please
familiarise yourself with their location.
Get to know the feel of your scooter and it's capabilities. Dealer recommends that you perform
a safety check before each use to make certain your scooter operates smoothly and safely. For
details on how to perform these necessary inspections, see the "Care & Maintenance" section of
this manual. Perform the following inspection prior to using your scooter.
(1)
(2)
(3)
(4)
Check all battery connections, making certain they are tight and not corroded.
Check front basket is fitted correctly.
Check batteries have been fully charged.
Check operation of brakes.
!
15
Warning: DO NOT carry passengers on your scooter. Your scooter is designed for a
single occupant which complies with legal requirements for pavement vehicles. Carrying
passengers on your scooter may result in personal injury and/or property damage.
!
Warning: Exceeding the weight limit will void your warranty and may result in personal
injury and damage to your scooter. Dealer will not be held responsible for injuries and/or
property damage resulting from failure to observe these weight limitations. Please also
remember when carrying heavy objects that this will increase your weight and may make
your scooter unstable.
Cornering: 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 surfaces, included surfaces (such as heavily cambered
pavements), riding from an area of low traction to an area of high traction (such as passing
from grass areas to a paved area - especially at high speed while turning), and abrupt directional
changes. DO NOT corner at high speed! If you feel that you may tip over in a corner, reduce your
speed and steering angle to prevent your scooter from tipping.
!
Warning: When cornering sharply, reduce your speed. When using your scooter at
higher speeds, anticipate changes in the road surface. This will greatly reduce the
possibility of a tip or fall. To avoid personal injury or property damage, ALWAYS
exercise common sense when cornering.
Braking: Your scooter is equipped with two powerful brake systems:
(1) Regenerative: Uses the electricity generated in your scooter drive motor to rapidly slow your
scooter when the speed direction lever is returned to the centre (neutral drive) stop position.
Electric/Mechanical Disc Park Brake: Located on the end of your drive motor it activates
(2) mechanically after the regenerative brake slows your scooter to a near stop, or when power is
removed from the drive system for any reason, as in the case of switching your machine off.
Brake engagement is far more abrupt at higher speeds. It is important that you anticipate when
the brakes will engage and that you are braced for the resulting deceleration.
!
Warning: Your scooter can decelerate very quickly. DO NOT decelerate or turn
abruptly when traveling at high speed unless absolutely necessary. If it is necessary to
decelerate or turn abruptly when driving at high speed, brace yourself by gripping the
steering handlebar tightly and positioning your feet firmly on the floorboard. Users who
can not grip the handlebar tightly and/or place their feet firmly against the footboard
should avoid deceleration from or turning abruptly at high speed, and therefore should
avoid traveling at high speed. Failure to observe this warning could result in serious
personal injury and property damage. ALWAYS brace yourself firmly when decelerating
your scooter.
Never drive down slopes at full speed, ALWAYS adjust your speed to the driving condition
and allow for gradual descents on inclines.
Outdoor Driving Surfaces: Your scooter is designed to provide optimum stability under normal
driving conditions i.e. dry, level surfaces composed of concrete or asphalt. However dealer
recognizes that there will be times when you will encounter other surfaces such as packed soil,
grass and gravel. These surfaces may not be sound and fail to give good traction, caution should
be considered before driving on this type of surface to prevent stability problems resulting in
injury or damage to your scooter.
16
(1) Reduce your scooter's speed to the "Low" switch position when driving on uneven terrain or
soft surfaces.
(2) Avoid long and unsafe grass that can become tangled in the running gear or may hide debris
and holes.
(3) Avoid snow, this can quickly build up around your wheels.
(4) Avoid loosely packed sand and gravel.
(5) If you feel unsure about a driving surface, please anticipate and avoid that surface.
Street And Roadway Driving:
!
Warning: Your scooter has been designed for operation on public streets and roads. It is
also designed for operation on pedestrian pavements and traffic free shopping areas.
Your scooter must be driven with due care and compliance with the Road Traffic Acts and
conditions of the Highway Code. ALWAYS obey all local pedestrian traffic rules. Wait until your
path is clear of traffic, and then proceed with extreme caution.
Note: ALWAYS wear light or illuminating clothing when driving your scooter. Be aware that
it may be difficult for traffic to see you when you are seated on your scooter. ONLY drive your
scooter on the road when a public pavement is available (i.e. in the countryside) or when crossing
the roadway from one pavement to another.
Insurance: Although at this moment in time it is not a legal requirement for accident insurance
cover (third party), it is a sensible precaution. Your authorised dealer will be able to give you
details of specialist insurance companies or your own insurance company will be able to advise
you.
Weather Precautions:
!
Warning: Dealer recommends that you DO NOT operate your scooter in icy or slippery
conditions or on salted surfaces i.e. Roads and Pavements etc. Such use may result in
accident, personal injury or adversely affect the performance and safety of your scooter.
!
Warning: Dealer recommends that you DO NOT expose your scooter to any type of
heavy moisture at any time i.e. rain, snow or power washer. Such exposure can damage
your scooter. Never drive through deep water or expose your scooter to sea water.
Note: Salt is very corrosive to metal and electronic components. Following use in winter
or exposure to sea sand and water, your scooter should be washed with a mild soap and
water to remove all ingress of salts.
!
17
Watning: DO NOT use a power hose. DO NOT operate your scooter if it has been
exposed to moisture, until it has been thoroughly dried out.
Motor Vehicle Transportation: 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 scooter. Although
your scooter may be equipped with a belt, this is not designed to provide proper restraint during
motor vehicle movements. Anyone traveling in a motor vehicle should be properly secured in the
motor vehicle seat with a safety belt fastened securely.
!
Warning: DO NOT sit on your scooter while it is in a moving vehicle. Personal injury
may result.
!
Warning: ALWAYS make certain that your scooter is properly secured when being
transported. Failure to comply may result in personal injury and/or damage to your
scooter.
Accessing Your Scooter: Getting on and off your scooter requires a good sense of balance.
Please observe the following tips when getting on and off your scooter.
(1) Make certain your scooter is switched off at the power switch, and the power key is removed.
(2)
(3)
Ensure your scooter is not in the freewheel mode.
Make certain the seat and handlebars are locked firmly into position.
The seat armrests can be lifted up to make access easier. Make certain you DO NOT attempt
(4) to drive with the armrests raised.
!
Warning: Position yourself as far back into the scooter seat as possible to prevent
tripping and causing injury.
!
Warning: Avoid using the armrests for weight bearing purposes, such use may cause the
scooter to tip and cause personal injury and/or damage to the scooter.
!
Warning: Avoid putting weight onto the steering handlebars, such use may cause the
scooter to tip and cause personal injury and/or damage to the scooter.
!
Warning: Avoid putting all of your weight onto the footboard, such use may cause the
scooter to tip and cause personal injury.
Modifications: we has designed your scooter to provide maximum mobility. A range of
accessories are available from authorised dealer, to further customise your scooter needs.
However, under no circumstances should you modify, add, remove or disable any feature, parts or
function of your machine.
!
Warning: Failure to observe this warning may result in personal injury and/or damage
to your scooter.
Inclines: More and more modern buildings are designed with disability access in mind. Ramps
have specified percentage of 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.
(1) Proceed with extreme caution as you approach the downgrade of a ramp or other incline, sit
right back in Your seat, brace your arms on the handlebars and your feet on the floorboard.
18
(2) Take a wide arc with your scooter's front wheels around tight corners, your rear wheels will
follow preventing you from cutting the corner short and bumping or getting hung up on raised
kerbs.
(3) When descending an incline keep your speed adjustment set to the slowest speed setting to
ensure a safely controlled descent and driving in a forward direction ONLY. If your scooter
descent is quicker than you anticipated allow the scooter to completely stop, then progress at
a slower speed setting.
Warning: Never drive down an incline at full speed.
!
(4) When climbing an incline, try to keep your scooter moving, if you must stop, start up again
slowly and then accelerate smoothly with caution. Avoid sudden stop starts, lean forward
towards your handlebars to increase stability and prevent rearward tripping.
!
Warning: When climbing an incline, DO NOT zig-zag or drive at an angle up the face
of the incline. Drive your scooter smoothly up the incline without stopping, this greatly
reduces the possibility of a tip or fall.
!
Warning: You should not travel over a potentially hazardous incline i.e. areas covered
with ice or snow, cut grass or wet leaves or any unstable surface.
!
Warning: DO NOT overload your scooter, at the rear when climbing an incline.
ALWAYS lean forward to provide the best stability and prevent rearward tripping.
!
Warning: Any attempt to climb or descend an incline steeper than shown in the scooter
specification at the rear of this manual may put your scooter in an unstable position and
cause it to tip resulting in personal injury.
Note: Never remove the anti-tip wheels of your scooter, they are an important part of your scooter
design.
Stairs And Escalator:
!
Warning: Scooters are not designed to travel up or down stairs or escalators. ALWAYS
use an elevator. Failure to observe this warning may result in injury to yourself and
others and damage your scooter.
Preventing Unintended Movement:
!
Warning: If you anticipate being seated in a stationary position for an extended period
of time turn off the power key switch, this will prevent unexpected motion due to
inadvertent movement of the direction control lever. Failure to observe this warning may
result in personal injury.
Disposal Of Elector-mobile Scooter:
In time when your scooter becomes
unusable it must be disposed of in
accordance with the laws implemented at
that time. For further information regarding
the recycling arrangements for this type
of vehicle and its batteries, contact your
local authority or government department,
details of this can be found in your telephone directory or your approve dealer .

LEARNING TO GET ABOUT
1. Basic Driving:
Make certain you are comfortably seated on your scooter and both armrests are down. Ensure that
the "Speed Adjustment Dial" is turned to minimum for your first drive. When you have become
more confident you can increase the setting to a higher speed. Push the right "Thumb Lever
Control" as described earlier. You will very gently move forwards. Release the lever, and you will
gently stop. Practice these two basic functions until you get used to them. Steering the scooter is
easy and logical by turning the handlebars in the direction you wish to maneuver.
2. Incline Control:
When you approach an incline, it is best to lean forward. This moves the center of gravity of your
scooter towards the front of the scooter for improved stability. When going down an incline, keep
your speed slow. This will keep you in a safely controlled descent. It is best to lean backwards;
this moves the center of gravity of your scooter towards the rear of the scooter for improved
stability. If you wish to stop completely, release the control lever, and you will come to a gentle
stop, avoid sudden stop or starts.
Normal driving position
Increased Stability driving position
3. Control Over Stationary Obstacles:
Stationery obstacle (steps, curbs etc.) must be avoided where possible. Proceed with extreme
caution when driving near raise surfaces, unprotected ledges and/or drop offs such as curbs,
porches, stairs etc.
Most new pavements have wheelchair access ramps at intersections, use these at all times. Plan
your route where possible to avoid poor and uneven surfaces. DO NOT attempt to ride up or
down curbs as you may ground your scooter and damage it's construction.
Correct
21
Incorrect
4. Control Over Grass & Gravel ETC.
Care must be taken when attempting to drive over soft surfaces such as those found in parks etc.
The surface may look level, but this can be deceiving and hidden dangers may make your scooter
become unstable or grounded. Avoid unkempt grass, loose deep gravel or sand. DO NOT exceed
the capabilities of your scooter. ALWAYS have an attendant to assist you in circumstances where
you are not certain of the terrain. ALWAYS anticipate and think safety.
Caution: Because of the power of your scooter, you will be able to climb inclines.
But the maximum safe gradient limit is 6 degree. The reason for this is to ensure good
stability.
ALWAYS have the anti-tipping wheels fitted to your scooter.
They are an important part of your scooters design and reduce
the likely hood of backward tipping.
ALWAYS avoid where possible turning on slopes or
climbing curbstones. ALWAYS make certain that your
scooter is in full working order and your batteries are fully charged before attempting to drive.
Never attempt to drive beyond the design capability of your scooter. Observe weather conditions.
Tyres can slip on wet or icy surfaces.
DO NOT DRIVE THROUGH DEEP WATER OR LEAVE YOUR SCOOTER EXPOSED
TO HEAVY RAIN.
i.e. During or after a thunderstorm.
DO NOT attempt to turn when negotiating an incline, ONLY turn when all wheels are fully on
or off the incline; failure to observe this warning could result in the machine becoming unstable
and toppling over. ALWAYS lean forward when ascending an incline and backwards when
descending an incline. This will enable you to maintain good stability and will eliminate any
chance of a rear or forward upset.
Note: The rear stability of your scooter is dependent on a number of factors which you should
consider before attempting to climb an incline or other obstacle:
(1) Your height;
(2) The height of your seat;
(3) Your weight;
(4) The angle of the incline you are attempting to climb.
All of these factors can affect the rear stability of your scooter. If you are unsure of your
capability to climb an obstacle, then try another route.
ALWAYS think "safety first".
22
CARE & MAINTENANCE
Your scooter, like any other electro-mechanical machine, will benefit from regular servicing by
your dealer. You too, can help keep your scooter in good condition by following a simple guide to
home maintenance.
Note: ONLY competent people should carry out service work.
Seat Upholstery:
A damp cloth and a little soapy water will keep your seat, backrest and arms looking smart.
DO NOT use abrasive cleaners as this will damage the coating. Upholstery can be damaged by
chemical cleaners.
The coating material can also degrade over a period of time due to contamination by natural oils
in the hair and skin or from medicated power products. Ultra-violet light can also reduce the life
of the upholstery coating material. This is a normal ageing process and cannot be guaranteed.
Bodywork:
The painted bodywork on your scooter can be lightly washed with clean soapy water. DO NOT
use abrasive cleaners or strong detergents. This could fade the color; shampoo for automobile
works well. Remove salt contact as this is very corrosive to bright metal parts.
Caution: DO NOT hose down your scooter with a powerful cleaner. Water could be
forced into the electronics and cause permanent damage. On the painted finish, be
cautious not to wash with a dirty cloth as this could scratch the paint finish. Auto polish
can be used to keep the paintwork and bright chrome parts in pristine condition.
The metal framework of your scooter should be cleaned twice a year and any paintwork damaged
should be treated to prevent further attack from the elements. Wash regularly if contact is made
with road or sea salt, this is very corrosive.
DO NOT store your scooter in damp conditions. This may affect the electronics if left for very
long periods of time. Moisture, if left unattended can cause deterioration on metal work, protect
with proprietary cleaners.
Electronics:
Servicing of the drive electronics and charger should ONLY be carried out by your local service
dealer. These units are sealed and should not be opened.
Broken Seals Will Invalidate Your Guarantee:
DO NOT operate your scooter in exceptional weather conditions, ie. very heavy rain or wind.
Cover your machine up if it is to be left unattended and outside for a long period of time.
DO NOT drive through deep water with your scooter. This could damage the electronic speed
controller. Sea and road salts are very corrosive and should be neutralized quickly.
Drive Transmission Lubrication:
This unit is factory filled and will not normally need additional lubrication.
Note: Your scooter transmission is filled with a special lubricant. DO NOT attempt to force
grease into the transmission as this will contaminate the original lubrication and will invalidate
your guarantee.
23
Caution: Take care when handling the transmission, keep well away from clothing. It is
normal to find a light film of lubrication around this part.
Motor Brakes:
Safety Note: For your own safety, we recommend that you check the function of your scooter
brakes prior to a journey.
Motor Brake: If the motor brake is functioning correctly and the drive is engaged you will not be
able to push your machine when it is switched off. Or switched on with the speed control lever in
the "zero speed", central position.
!
Warning: If your scooter can be pushed as described above, the motor brake could be
faulty. Please DO NOT use, contact your local dealer.
Note: Check the Freewheeling Instructions of this manual.
Driving Brake:
!
Warning: When you drive your scooter and you let go of the speed control lever your
scooter should reduce speed very quickly. If you notice a change in the normal slowing/
braking condition of your scooter and it does not slow down quickly, please DO NOT
use your machine, and contact your local dealer.
Tyres
Check the condition of your tyres regularly. Look for
signs of wear, cuts and foreign objects lodged in the
tread. Tyres should be replaced when the tread is worn
to 0.5mm.
24
BATTERIES & BATTERY CHARGING
1. Battery Installation:
Your scooter is equipped with two maintenance free 12 volt 12Ah or 18Ah batteries. The batteries
are linked together by wiring cables to supply the electronic system with 24 volts of power.
!
Warning: It is imperative that the two batteries are connected correctly to prevent a
short circuit between the two batteries. When first installing the batteries follow these
assembly instructions.
(1) Connect the labeled positive (+) wire to the positive (+) terminal of the battery, with the
screw, nut and washer provided.
(2) Connect the labeled negative (-) wire to the negative (-) terminal of the battery, with the
screw, nut and washer provided.
(3) Repeat this procedure on the second battery making certain the plastic red/black
terminal
covers are secured over each terminal.
(4) Sit on the seat and switch on your scooter, the battery meter will now move to show the state
of charge in the batteries and your scooter is ready to drive.
2. Battery Charging:
Your scooter has a lot of power. To ensure it works to
its full potential you must maintain both batteries on
full charge. Nightly recharging, after use, will help you
to give them a longer life and will ensure your scooter
is ALWAYS ready to go when you are. ONLY use the
charger supplied with your scooter; other makes of
charger may permanently damage your batteries and
would invalidate the guarantee.
25
BASIC FAULT FINDING
If your scooter will not start:
(1) Check that the power key switch is turned "on". If it is, the battery condition indicator meter
will be operating. If the green status light on your console is flashing once per second,
charge your batteries.
If the battery condition meter and the green status light fail to operate when the key switch is in
the "on" position, check the following:
(2) Make sure the battery charger is not plugged into the charge socket, this will prevent the
scooter from driving.
(3) Check both battery connectors. Check battery terminal condition.
(4) Check the circuit breaker.
If your scooter stops for no apparent reason, it is probably due to the circuit breaker disconnecting
from the speed control electronic box.
On rare occasions, a temporary overload on the electric circuit can occur – for instance when
climbing a steep incline. If this happens, reset the circuit breaker, wait for two minutes to allow
the temperature activated switch to cool down. Locate the plunger on the circuit breaker through
the access hole. Place a finger onto the circuit breaker and press down on the plunger until it
remains down. You are now ready to drive again. If the circuit breaker trips up again wait for 5
minutes and try again.
1. Fault Diagnosis:
Faults with the main speed controller are rare. Most faults on powered vehicles are associated
with wiring or misconnections due to poor maintenance or incorrect installation of connectors
when assembling the scooter after transportation in a car.
If your scooter should fail to operate, you will be assisted in diagnosis and locating the area of
the fault by observing the number of flashes emitted from the "green" status light on your control
console.
26
2. Charging Circuit Fuse:
One fuse protects your scooter charging circuit from receiving an overload of electrical current.
The fuse used in the scooter is the same type which is found on automobiles. In the unlikely event
that a fuse should "blow" and needs replacing.
Use ONLY a fuse of a 40 amp rating. Please note this size of fuse has been selected to give your
scooter the best protection without premature fusing.
!
Warning: DO NOT use fuses with a higher rating than 40 amps as this may cause
permanent failure to the wiring and wiring connectors or personal injury. For access to a
fuse remove the screws located in the battery box cover, and then lift the cover.
Locate and lift the fuse block on its wire, lift up the fuse lid and withdraw the "red" fuse. Replace
the blown fuse with recommended 40 amp (orange) fuse, close fuse lid and replace fuse block.
The scooter ONLY uses a fuse of a 40 amp rating. Please note this size of fuse has been selected
to give your scooter the best protection without premature fusing.
