Dual Motor Electric Scooter Tire;
When we think about maintaining our dual motor electric scooters, we forget about maintaining our tires. For most of us, washing/cleaning an Electric Scooter is part of good maintenance. This may seem relatively insignificant compared to other electrical and mechanical maintenance jobs.
Tire Maintenance is a Big Job;
Don’t underestimate your tire maintenance. After working hard to choose the best brake combination for your scooter, a weak tire can lead to an accident. If you do not maintain your tires regularly, you are putting your safety at risk.
Now, I know you may not know how to properly service your dual motor electric scooter tires, but we’ve got you covered.
Let’s Starts With You;
Preventive or corrective maintenance. The trick is that by doing good preventive maintenance, you can avoid corrective maintenance. General preventive maintenance for your scooter goes beyond the tires. It is divided into the maintenance of electrical and mechanical parts.
The advantages of preventive maintenance are that your electric scooter is always level and you avoid expensive repairs or the destruction of the electric scooter. You can also protect yourself from damage by performing routine checks (preventive maintenance) on your e-scooter.
Preventive electrical maintenance cuts out the following parts: electric motor, throttle body, fuses, switches, alternator, controller and batteries.
Preventive maintenance of mechanical parts, repairs on the following parts: brakes, tires, wheels and other parts of your scooter.
We focus on tires for dual-motor electric scooters. Before taking care of your tires, you need to understand the uniqueness of scooter tires. This leads us to explore the next topic….
Tires for Electric Scooter With Two Motors;
Understanding the different tires on dual motor electric scooters will help you effectively use the maintenance tips we’ll cover.
As you know, there are two types of tires for dual-motor electric scooters: pneumatic (air) tires and solid (airless) tires. Tires can be tubeless or tubeless. Solid tires can be airbags/honeycomb or inflated tires.
Which One is The Best?
In general, pneumatic tires are better than solid rubber tires. They are made of soft rubber and are commonly used in vehicles and bicycles. Tubeless tires use a sealed rim, while tubular tires use inner tubes with a protruding valve (commonly found on bicycles).
To repair tubeless tires, you need to remove the tire from the scooter, but there is no need to remove the inner tubes. Simply remove the tire from the rim. This is a major advantage/disadvantage that sets them apart.
Solid tires have no inner tube; They are made of rubber or filled with rigid polyurethane foam. These tires wear faster due to the friction created during movement. Compared to solid tires, pneumatic tires last longer and are more expensive. Solid tires are heavier and more resistant to punctures. This means that the ring can never be empty.
Why is Tire Maintenance Important?
Often the only explanation for a flat tire is poor maintenance or a bad tire. Dual-motor electric scooters typically have a small tire size in relation to the rider’s weight. For this reason, it is essential to use high-quality, durable and properly maintained tires. The stability and speed you enjoy while driving also depends on your tires.
Good tires provide effective performance on rough terrain. Even better, you’ll have a better grip in wet or slippery conditions.
Where Can You Start a Tire Service?
Buy the right type of tire;
Preferably, choose high quality bouncing castles that fit your needs in size and finish. The larger the diameter of the tire, the greater the probability of overcoming obstacles.
The stability of your e-scooter is directly proportional to the width of your tires. Also make sure that the profile (surface) of the tire can be adjusted to the terrain you ride frequently. Smooth cables are suitable for asphalt roads and Off Road E Scooter cables for rough terrain.
Check tire pressure regularly;
Tire pressure determines how fast and how far you can go. This explains why it is important to check tire pressure frequently.
We have a problem….
What is the correct pressure for your tire? How much air should tires contain? Let’s say your tire pressure is between 35 and 45 psi. A light rider should use 36-37 psi and a heavy rider 42-43 psi.
Caution: Never exceed the maximum pressure recommended by the manufacturer.
Medium pressure is a safer place compared to lower or higher pressure. With a lower pressure you will experience: slower speed, increased tire wear, faster battery discharge, increased rolling resistance and risk of rim damage.
Driving at higher pressures will be uncomfortable and the tire is likely to burst while driving. Other disadvantages are wear and curves are dangerous.
Determine when you need to change tires;
How long should a tire be used before changing? Maybe after 25,000 km.
There is no hard and fast rule for this, but usually after 1000 km there is enough time to change the tires. Much depends on the current condition of your tires and the terrain where you will be using them in the future. Another exception is your manufacturer’s recommendation and how often you use your current tires.
Use more often depending on the terrain. It’s important to check the tread of your tires to make sure they’re giving you the traction you need. The rear tire supports more weight than the front tire. It is good maintenance practice to rotate the front and rear tires regularly to ensure even tire wear.
Leave The End;
Your tires can mean the difference between safe driving and dangerous driving. You need to make sure you follow good preventative maintenance practices to keep them in good condition. Buy the right tires, check your tire pressure before each trip and decide when your tires need to be replaced.
