From the factory, the strength of the hand-brake may not be up to all situations and we would advise for this to be adjusted to accommodate for the load and environment the scooter is being ridden in. We would like to note that more intense braking practices may results in faster wear and tear of the tyres.
What will be needed for this?
An Allen key set will be the only tool that is needed to perform this task, however, another individual would likely be very helpful also.
Step One: Please raise the rear of the scooter off the ground and make note of how strong the brake is currently. This will become your point of reference. Please just spin the wheel and press on the hand brake and gauge how long the wheel takes to come to a complete stop.
Step Two: Release the hand brake and use a 5mm Allen key to loosen the cable from the brake calliper. There should now be very little (if any) tension in the brake cable.
Step Three: Now, to increase the sensitivity of the brake handle, you will want to have the brake cable under more tension than it had been previously. This can be accomplished by attaching the calliper arm higher up on the brake cable than it had been initially. This would be the stage where an additional pair of hands would be very helpful.
Step Four: With the calliper once again reattached to the brake cable, please ensure that the scooter brake is acting as it should before you proceed to use the item. These steps may need to be performed a number of times before the best result is achieved.
