•
Use only the top case, the storage compartment under the seat or loading hook when
transporting objects

•
Maximum load in the top case:
•

After use:
•
Check to see whether the battery needs charging
Riding on a partially charged battery will significantly reduce it’s life.
You can increase the life of the battery by using the original e-max charging unit every
time you charge the Scooter. Over charging the battery is impossible as the charging
unit switches off when the maximum charge is reached.

4. Vehicle maintenance
All parts of a motorbike are equally at risk of corrosion because of aggressive pollutants in the
air and from the effects of salt on the road. It is the responsibility of the user to adequately
protect the vehicle from these factors. This will help to maintain the value of the vehicle and
its warranty claims.
•
•
•
•
•
•
Clean painted chassis parts with finish restorer and treat the rubber parts with special
rubber care products
Clean the vehicle regularly (do not use a high pressure cleaner)
Clean aluminium parts with a protective spray (e.g. Motoplast) in order to
prevent oxidation. Carefully remove existing spots of corrosion on aluminium with
appropriate steel wool containing soap
Always oil or grease frame and metal parts. This reduces corrosion.
Never remove insects with an insect sponge or any similarly
hard object.
A vehicle that is constantly parked outdoors must be covered with a protective covering in
order to prevent weathering of painted panels, as well as to prevent cracking of seats and
other plastic parts.
•
Do not use a high pressure cleaner!!
Water particles could lead to contact problems in the electronics.
•
Seats, instrument panels, indicators, rear light and weather protection screens as well as
hardened dirt and insects are to be cleaned with an insect remover, not with an insect
sponge as this can result in scratches.
