Controls Edit

Brakes Edit

Cable operated, controlled via lever on handlebars. ESR Sports have front caliper brakes only.

Throttle Edit

Magnetic throttle control using a thumb lever mounted on the handlebars. The throttle is continuously variable and also contains the On/Off switch, "Flux Capacitor" LED power level indicator and Econo/Turbo mode switch. You may switch between power modes while moving or stopped. The power indicator contains three LEDs, one green, one yellow and one red. If all three are illuminated the scooter has a significant amount of battery life left and Turbo mode may be used. When the green light goes out and only yellow and red are left it is advisable to only use Econo mode, as Turbo may drain the already low batteries much quicker. If only the red light is on the scooter should not be ridden and put on the charge ASAP.

Adjustments Edit

The chain is adjusted with the black plastic tensioner mounted near the motor. Moving it down tightens the chain, up loosens it. It is advisable to run the loosest safe chain tension (no skipping or torquing) in order to reduce resistance and increase range, speed and battery life.

The parameters for Econo and Turbo modes may be changed using the PMW Go-Prammer, which plugs into the scooter and acts as both a programmer and diagnostic tool. Using the Go-Prammer one may dial in an infinitely variable number of speed/range combinations.


You'll never have to replaceEdit

-Frame -Fork -Wheels -Electronics (if properly cared for)

You may eventually have to replaceEdit

-Brushes in the electric motor ($25) -Tires ($12 each) -Sprockets ($20 each) -Batteries ($15-40 each depending on brand, you need 4) -Chain ($15, but lasts VERY long)

You should immediately replaceEdit

If the scooter has sealed lead acid batteries and has been sitting uncharged for a year or more, you will likely have to replace the batteries. Make sure to lube the chain before each ride as well to preclude chain and sprocket wear.
