  1. Most scooters and chairs can be programmed to suit your requirements, this should be done when you buy the scooter but is often overlooked. So often I meet customers that are not aware that the settings can be changed. I cannot make them go faster! The speeds are set by the manufacturer and by law so the top speed on pavement scooters is 4 mph and road scooters 8 mph. I do however come across scooters that have not been set to the maximum speed so this may help you. There are some makes such as Shoprider that have limited things that can be changed. If unsure please ask me.

    • Braking - how quickly it stops and how sharply.
    • Acceleration - how quickly it picks up speed.
    • Reverse beeper on/off
    • Invert the throttle pot Wig Wag. Most are set up for right handed use but can be changed to suit left handed use.
    • Joystick sensitivity
  2. THE LADY MENTIONED BELOW HAS HAD A STROKE AND ONLY HAS THE USE OF ONE ARM, ONE WORD... INSPIRING.

    I had a lady contact me looking for an EBrake for her scooter, she had been to her local mobility shop and they had quoted her £250 to repair it and this was too expensive for her. So she thought that she would reapir it herself, it is not that difficult to change, take the rear wheel off and then remove 3 screws. I sold her the part for £55 so she saved herself £195! And most importantly didn't give extortionate amounts of money to the company, I am not sure how they justify over £200 for a maximum 30 minutes work. 

    So if you live too far away from me and do not want to pay the huge charges some make then why not try a bit of DIY? I will always help if I can and offer advice and guidance..... Anything to stop some companies overcharging.
