Let’s face it nothing beats opening the box of your brand new VSETT. The smell, its finish and that super clean deck! It's only when you take it out on for an off-road adventure that you realise how clean and neat it once looked.
Cleaning your VSETT electric scooter is an essential part of its maintenance to ensure its longevity and performance. Here are the steps to follow when cleaning your electric scooter:
- Gather the necessary materials: You will need a bucket of warm soapy water, a microfiber cloth or sponge, a clean towel, and a soft-bristled brush.
- Power off and unplug your scooter: Before starting to clean your electric scooter, ensure that it is turned off and unplugged from the power source to avoid any electrical hazards.
- Remove any dirt or debris: Use a soft-bristled brush to remove any dirt or debris that may have accumulated on your electric scooter. Be sure to pay special attention to the wheels, brakes, and motor.
- Wash the scooter: Dip the microfiber cloth or sponge in the bucket of warm soapy water and squeeze off all excess water. Gently wipe down the entire electric scooter, including the handlebars, stem, and base. Avoid getting water on any electrical components, including the battery.
- Rinse and dry: After washing, wipe down the electric scooter with a damp cloth of clean water and use a clean towel to dry it off completely. Make sure that all the parts are thoroughly dried before plugging it back in.
- Check the brake pads and tyre pressure: Inspect the brake pads for wear and tear. If they look worn, they may need to be replaced. Make sure the tyres are inflated to the recommended tyre pressure as identified in the user manual.
- Apply lubricant: Use a silicone-based lubricant to lubricate the moving parts of your electric scooter, such as the wheels, brakes, and throttle, to ensure their smooth operation.
- Store your electric scooter properly: Store your electric scooter in a dry and secure location to protect it from any potential damage.
By following these steps, you can keep your VSETT clean and in good condition and get that ‘out of the box’ feeling every time. Also, a clean scooter ensures that it runs smoothly and safely for many years to come.
