BATTERY PACK, CHARGER PORT AND CHARGER
ELECTRO-DRIVE™ SMART CHARGER: The Electro-Drive™ scooter comes
with its own Electro-Drive™ Smart Charger that connects with an easy-access charger port for recharging the batteries. This charger unit has lights
that show the battery charge status. Refer to the instructions that appear on
the charger unit and its instructions.
!
WARNING
Use only a Currie Authorized Smart Charger to charge
the batteries. Using any other charger may damage the
batteries and void your warranty.
HOW TO CHARGE THE BATTERIES
1. IMPORTANT: Be sure the
power switch on the scooter
is in the “OFF” position. (Ref
Photo A)
2. Rotate open the charger port
cover (Ref Photo B).
3. Insert the Battery Charger’s
XLR (Male) plug into the CharPhoto A
ger Port (Ref Photo C).
4. Plug the Battery Charger’s AC
plug into a standard, grounded
110V AC outlet.
5. Let the batteries charge until
the charger lights indicate that
the batteries are fully charged,
then unplug the charger from
the scooter and the AC outlet.
Batteries like to have a full charge, so Photo B
always be sure to recharge them fully
after each ride. If you leave them in
a run-down condition, without quickly
recharging them, it will shorten their
life expectancy. The charger may get
warm to the touch, so make sure you
charge them in an open area and
do not lay anything on the charger
unit while charging. Although you
cannot over-charge the batteries

BATTERY CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Not doing any and/or all of the following may lead to reduced performance
and/or permanent damage to the batteries. Batteries that have been damaged by not following the below steps will need to be replaced and are not
covered under warranty.
•
•
•
•
•
Always be sure to fully charge batteries before first use (6-10
hours depending on size).
Always be sure to fully charge batteries after each and every use
(6-10 hours depending on size).
Be sure to charge batteries at least every 30 days.
Do not store batteries below 50º Fahrenheit and never allow batteries to freeze (below 32º Fahrenheit).
Always be sure to turn the scooter “OFF” after each use via the
On/Off power switch.
SLA (SEALED LEAD ACID) BATTERY CONDITIONING
SLA batteries should always be fully charged (charge time of 6-10 hours
depending on amperage of battery) before first use. This will help obtain
optimum performance.
SLA batteries have a “break-in” cycle consisting of ~ three discharge/charge
cycles before they will reach optimum performance. This involves three
complete discharges and three complete recharges (charge time of 6-10
hours depending on amperage of battery and strength of the charger). After
this initial “break-in” cycle the batteries will have increased performance and
less line voltage fluctuations under load, as indicated by the throttle LED’s.
FUSE
In the event of an overload the fuse will pop and need to be replaced. In this
instance replace only with approved part from Currie Technologies®.
!
WARNING
Risk of fire, Do not bypass fuse.

THROTTLE AND BRAKE OPERATION & ADJUSTMENT
THROTTLE OPERATION
The speed of the Electro-Drive™
scooter is controlled by a griptwist throttle, which is located on
the handlebar.
To check the throttle operation,
turn the power switch to the
“OFF” position. Fully twist the
throttle then quickly release it.
The throttle is spring loaded and
should immediately spring back to
its original (also know as “Zero Position) position.
To accelerate, twist the right hand throttle grip towards you as you stand
on the deck plate. The more you twist the throttle, the faster the motor will
propel the scooter until you reach the scooter’s top speed.
To go slower, or coast to a slower speed, allow the throttle to spring back to
its original position. To decelerate or come to a complete stop, release the
throttle and allow it to return automatically to its original position. Then squeeze
the brake lever(s) to activate the brake(s). Remember to release the throttle
whenever you apply the brake.
!
WARNING
!
WARNING
The throttle and its components are fully assembled and
tested at the factory. Do not attempt to adjust them at
any time. If you feel the throttle and/or components are in
need of service DO NOT RIDE THE SCOOTER! Contact
Currie Technologies® Customer Service number at 1-800377-4532.
If you do not fully understand how to operate your scooter
throttle properly, DO NOT RIDE YOUR SCOOTER. Contact Currie Technologies Customer Service for information
and instructions at 1-800-377-4532.
HOW TO USE THE THROTTLE LED’S
When the throttle is engaged (powering the motor) and the scooter is in motion, the LED’s on the throttle indicate instantaneous line voltage as measured at the battery terminals -- and not the available energy in the battery
pack.
18
Chain Drive Scooters.indd 18
Customer Service 1-800-377-4532
3/18/2008 12:18:29 PM
Currie Technologies®
The line voltage will fluctuate depending on the instantaneous load that the
motor is under. For example, when starting out from a dead stop, or going
up a steep hill, the motor will be under a high load and the “Yellow” or even
“Red” LED will illuminate. To a lesser degree, another factor that influences
the load on the motor (and therefore the LED readings) is the gearing of the
motor. Scooters with Direct Drive (DD) gearboxes are geared for slightly
higher top end speeds and therefore have a higher load when starting from
a dead stop versus scooters with belt or chain drive, which have a lower top
end speed. The higher gear ration of the DD scooters will cause the Red LED
to illuminate more often compared to other scooters.
When the throttle is disengaged (i.e. no power to the motor due to the
scooter being stationary or coasting) the LED’s on the throttle will indicate
the voltage of the battery pack. The voltage of the battery pack will rise
when no load is on the motor. The best indication of how much battery life is
remaining is to check the throttle LED’s, after reaching cruising speed, on a
flat straight road as this will allow the battery voltage to stabilize and give a
much more accurate reading.
5 MINUTE SLEEP MODE
Scooters are equipped with a 5 minute sleep mode. If no activity is detected
after 5 minutes the scooter will go into stasis mode to conserve the batteries.
To restart, cycle the power switch Off then On.
!
WARNING
Never store your scooter in Sleep Mode as battery power
will still be used by the scooter. Always be sure to turn the
power switch to the “OFF” position.
HEAT SHUT-DOWN MODE
If the controller has over-heated and power to the motor has been shut down,
turn the main power switch “OFF” for at least 30 minutes to allow the controller
to cool down before riding any more. Turn the power switch “ON” and resume
riding.
!
WARNING
The scooter will shut down due to over-heating caused
by excessive stress on the motor (i.e. too steep a hill, too
heavy a rider, etc.).

All brakes need periodic adjustment. However, the brake
mechanism itself should be adjusted only by a qualified
service technician. If or when it needs service, take your
scooter to your local bicycle dealer or to the retailer who
sold you the scooter.
Improper adjustment of your brake(s) can cause poor
braking and lead to an accident, serious rider injury or
death.
BRAKE CABLE ADJUSTMENT
If your brake cable stretches (as is
common with new cables do during
the initial “breaking-in” period), your
brake lever will require a longer “pull”
to engage the brake and may even
touch the handlebar when squeezed.
Use the adjusting barrel on the brake
lever to adjust for this cable stretch.
Loosen the adjusting barrel lock nut.
Unscrew the adjusting barrel out of the lever 1 to 2 turns, then re-tighten the
lock nut to secure the adjusting barrel.
!
WARNING
20
Chain Drive Scooters.indd 20
Do not allow the adjusting barrel to unscrew more than
5 full rotations out of the brake lever.

WARNING
Always test your brakes after making any adjustment to
be sure they are operating properly before riding.
If you reach the limit of the cable adjustments described
above and you are still experiencing poor braking
performance, do not continue to ride. Do not attempt
to adjust the cable any further or attempt to adjust
the brake. Take your scooter to a qualified scooter
or bicycle mechanic for proper service, or call Currie
Technologies® Customer Service at: 1-800-377-4532.
Proper brake performance and adjustment is vital to
safe scooter operation. Never ride your scooter unless
your brakes are adjusted and working correctly.

CHAIN ADJUSTMENT
The chain can stretch during use or may occasionally come out of adjustment. Regular attention to proper chain tension and lubrication will minimize
the risk of the chain falling off the rear sprocket and help your scooter maintain optimum performance.
Properly adjusted, the chain should have 5-6mm (1/4”) of up-and-down travel
or slack.
WARNING
!
Currie
Technologies®
strongly recommends that any chain
tension adjustment be performed by a
trained scooter or bicycle mechanic.

REAR WHEEL INSTALLATION
300, 4.0 AND 400 SERIES SCOOTERS
The order of this installation is very important. Start with the chain pushed
over the frame so it can be placed on the large sprocket after the wheel is in
place.

If your scooter has a rear brake install it on the left side axle. Be sure
the chain is mounted on the large sprocket on the right side of the hub.
Push the wheel with the larger chain guard all the way forward in the frame.
Work the chain onto the small drive sprocket on the motor.
When the chain is in place on both sprockets, pull the wheel back in
the frame until the chain slack is completely removed.
Install the left and right side chain tension adjusters and the axle
nuts, but do not tighten completely at this time. Chain tensioners are
mounted on the outside of the frame.
Adjust the chain tensioners for proper chain tension (5-6mm or about
1/4” slack), then install the smaller chain guard on the right side of the
frame, over the motor gear and chain with its fixing screw.
If your scooter has a rear band brake attach it and the brake cable
hanger by inserting the 4mm Allen bolt through the frame. Mount the
band brake arm on the bolt first, then the rear cable hanger. Hold the
nut using an 8mm wrench and tighten the bolt with a 4mm Allen key
(or Phillips screwdriver), and completely tighten both right and left axle
nuts at this time.
If your scooter has a rear band brake attach the brake cable by first
making sure the brake cable is inserted through the adjusting barrel
on the rear cable hanger. Then slide the spring over the brake wire.
Thread the brake cable through the hole in the cable pinch bolt. Next
insert the pinch bolt (with cable) through the brake actuator arm, starting from the back side of the arm so that the nut can be tightened from
the outside. Place the washer over the pinch bolt and install the nut.
Hand tighten the nut only at this point.
If your scooter has a rear band brake adjust the brake cable by pulling
and holding it taut with pliers through the pinch bolt, push the brake
actuator arm forward along the wire and then tighten the cable pinch
bolt using a 10mm wrench. Immediately test the brake cable adjustment by squeezing the brake lever. When the brake is fully applied it
should not touch the handlebar, and the wheel should spin freely when
you release the brake lever. It may take you 2 or 3 attempts to make
this adjustment.
