Ask the experts!

Kick scooters are pretty low maintenance machines, requiring only little more than a bit of TLC every now and then. The best thing to do to keep yours in shape is:

  • Store it in a dry space when not riding.

  • Check every few months for loose parts, bolts, or wheels.

  • If your scooter has a handbrake (like Xootrs do), replace the brake pad and cable once a year if you ride daily. With lighter use, replace those parts when you feel diminished braking power.

Beyond that, most repairs can be handled more conveniently by an experienced mechanic.
