Maintenance Tips for KickScooter users

In this short video Jake Billing shares his methods, ideas and maintenance tips about looking after his Ninebot by Segway ES-series KickScooter. Topics he covers in this well-shot 7 minute clip include:

  • Cleaning – keep your ES-series KickScooter looking spick & span
  • Lubricating – “No more squeaks, no more creaks” (including a tip about whether to use a wet lubricant or a dry lubricant – depending on the environment where you live)
  • Tightening – every thing ever invented that is fastened to another thing can potentially move or loosen over time,

In this video, Jake’s ES4 has travelled more than 800km and his tips about checking to ensure bolts remain tight and using thread-locker are invaluable (even more-so if you ride on the rough, or push the limits of the manufacturer’s use specifications)
