Tips To Ride Electric Scooter

Electrotherm India Limited was the first company to introduce electric scooters in India under the brand name of YObykes. The company offers a special range of two-wheelers that are eco-friendly, economical, safe and convenient.Visit the siteĀ e-scooters.

Conventional automobiles use fossil fuels such as petrol, diesel or gas. Their mechanism consists of many heavy and complex components such as gasoline engine, gear box, clutch plates and more. Due to weight of these components, conventional vehicles are heavy in weight and harder to manage. Plus, such complex parts require more maintenance and repair.

On the other hand, battery bikes are safe to environment as they don’t use any gasoline fuel. In addition, they have a rechargeable battery and a motor to count as the major components. So along with being light-weight, they are easy to maintain as well. The reason is absence of any complex mechanism.

So in order to keep your electric scooter running well, you don’t have to do much. Just keep in mind following a few tips and you are done!

  1. Charge the battery regularly

It’s advisable to regularly charge the battery of your bike and avoid discharge in use. You should charge it as and when you can, to enjoy some unexpected trips. Keeping the battery in discharged mode for a longer time is not advisable. If your bike hasn’t been used for three or more weeks, then charge it first before you use it. Always charge the battery using Electrotherm supplied/approved charger to maintain a good battery life. And do not try to dismantle either the charger or the battery.

  1. Lubrication is required

Lubrication is required for all the bearing fittings such as rear and front axles, handle/steering and frame joints, bearings on central pedal axle, pedal pivots, brake lever joints, chain (with grease), etc. Any general purpose lubricant such as Active 4T (Castrol), MP3 Grease or oil can be used. Excess oil or grease should be cleaned with the help of a cloth. Remember that in dusty and rainy conditions, lubrication is required more often.

  1. Use your electric scooter in the right way

Avoid overloading or over speeding your e-bike as doing so will reduce its range substantially. Also, start the two-wheeler gradually by avoiding the racing start as it can faster drain the energy from its battery. So avoid fast acceleration. Frequent and unnecessary braking can also worsen the performance of your e-scooter. Apart from this, maintaining proper pressure in the tyres is also necessary as under-inflation of the tyres can increase the rolling resistance and waste the energy ultimately. And make sure that you clean your bike regularly but don’t use water-under-pressure because it can cause damage to electric components. Turn off the power whenever your battery bike is not in use. For example: At road crossing signals, etc.
