An impact or accident can cause all types of damage, one of the most common is damage to the brake lever. All the range of Decent electric scooters use a three types of brakes; a hand brake, electronic brake, and as a redundancy, a foot brake. For the electronic brake to work as it should, a sensor had been incorporated into the brake lever which would tell the motor when the user is attempting to brake so that it can engage the electronic brake. If this becomes faulty as a result of wear and tear, or any other reason, incorrect signals may be sent to the electronic brake causing an problems for the user.
In this guide, we will discuss the steps involved in replacing this part. Thankfully, this is far from a difficult task and shouldn't take you much longer than a few minutes.
So, how do I replace the brake lever?
Step One: Please remove the left handle bar from your electric scooter. The screw holding the brake lever to the scooter will also need to be removed.
Step Two: The brake cable will need to be removed from the brake lever. This will work in much the same way as it would for a bike. Please loosen the brake cable at the brake calliper, then the cable can be pulled at the end of the brake lever and removed.
Step Three: Now the brake lever is completely loose from the braking mechanism, it's connector can be pulled out from the underside of the handlebars. Before pulling the connector out of the small cavity on the underside of the handlebars, it is best to disconnect the brake lever from the dashboard. This can be completed by pulling the cable out and through the handlebars, where the rubber grips would usually crew into. The connectors should be covered in an insulative tape which should be removed.
Step Four: Now the connector has been disconnected, the brake lever should be free to be removed from the device. If these steps are followed in reverse, the new brake lever can be fitted.
