An ill-inflated tire will see its reduced life expectancy because its floor area will be more important. This will also be felt on autonomy. If it is a tire with air chamber, the latter risk of drivingbecause friction will be more important. If the tire is too inflated, it Risk The bursting.
The optimal pressure is always indicated on theA manufacturer's form or the instructions your scooter, also you will find the maximum pressure generally indicated on the flanks of the tires.
A used tire will be less effective in terms of adhesion, especially on wet ground. Indeed, without the grooves allowing the evacuation of water, the risk of aquaplaning (unintentional skidding due to water) is much higher.
The braking system must be controlled regularly, in order to keep braking optimal and safe. According to scooters, these are disc brakes with mechanical or hydraulic caliper, or drum brakes coupled to a motor brake system (magnetic brake).
Discs, brake pads or drum trim must be controlled and adjusted regularly. They must be changed as soon as the wear is noted.

In these cases, it is necessary Extract the screw or change the piece if extraction is not possible.
