PRE-RIDE SAFETY CHECK
Get to know the feel of your scooter and its capabilities. It is recommended that you perform a safety check
before each use to make sure your scooter operates smoothly and safely. For details on how to perform
these necessary inspections, see XI. Care and Maintenance.
Perform the following inspections prior to using your scooter:
n Check for proper tire inflation. Maintain 30-35 psi in each tire (if equipped with pneumatic tires).
n Check all electrical connections. Make sure they are tight and not corroded.
n Check the front-to-rear harness. Make sure it is secured properly.
n Check the brakes.
n Check battery charge.
If your scooter is equipped with pneumatic tires, you should check or have the air pressure checked at least
once a week. Proper inflation pressures will prolong the life of your tires and help ensure the smooth
operation of your scooter.
WARNING! It is critically important that 30-35 psi tire pressure be maintained in pneumatic
tires at all times. Do not underinflate or overinflate your tires. Low pressure may result in
loss of control, and overinflated tires may burst. Failure to maintain 30-35 psi tire pressure
in pneumatic tires at all times may result in tire and/or wheel failure, causing serious
personal injury and/or damage to your scooter.
WARNING! Inflate your scooter tires from a regulated air source with an available pressure
gauge. Inflating your tires from an unregulated air source could overinflate them, resulting
in a burst tire and/or personal injury.
Your scooter is rated for a maximum weight capacity. Please refer to the specifications table for this limit.
WARNING! Exceeding the weight limit voids your warranty and may result in personal
injury and damage to your scooter. Pride will not be held responsible for injuries and/or
property damage resulting from failure to observe weight limitations.
WARNING! Do not carry passengers on your scooter. Carrying passengers on your scooter
may result in personal injury and/or property damage.
More and more buildings have ramps with specified percents of inclination, designed for easy and safe
access. Some ramps may have turning switchbacks (180-degree turns) that require you to have good cor-
nering skills on your scooter.
n Proceed with extreme caution as you approach the downgrade of a ramp or other incline.
n Take wide swings with your scooters front wheels around any tight corners. If you do that, the scooters
rear wheels will follow a wide arc, not cut the corner short, and not bump into or get hung up on any
n When driving down a ramp, keep the scooters speed adjustment set to the slowest speed setting to
ensure a safely controlled descent. See V. Your Victory XL-4.
n Avoid sudden stops and starts.
