myBESTscooter is not liable for any repairs which includes tyre punctures, disc brakes, kick-stand, lights, reflective stickers, cable damage or any other consumables which would wear out/occur within normal use of the scooter.
Like with any type of vehicle, customer should expect and be responsible to do some minor maintenance and adjustment time to time. It is very important to follow these practises:
- Avoid riding in a rain. For Xiaomi M365/1S/Essential/Pro/Pro2 the water can get into display, battery compartment, it may also damage the rear light. To prevent these, use 3D printed rain cover for Xiaomi M365/Pro's display and the battery compartment seal/foam. Please note that according to manual, you will void your warranty if you ride it in a rain.
- For any electric scooter, especially Xiaomi Pro and Segway ES2: make sure to set your battery regeneration/recovery to weak. Never charge it all the way up to 100% and then go downhill or at a fast speed and use sudden braking. Even at a weak setting, moving wheels generate power and when your battery is nearly full, it may not be able to handle all that energy and will result in blown up controllers. This is also very important if you use extended battery for ES1/ES2.
- Never customise/hack your firmware and as mentioned in the previous point, it is very likely to damage your controllers, battery and other consumables.
- For Xiaomi scooters, constantly check the tire pressure. Make sure to pump them up to 3.5-4 bars (50 PSI). This will help to prevent flats and any wear to the inner tube. Additionally, avoid installing solid tires as it may result in increased vibrations which will lead to loose battery connections and other parts breaking. If you are fed up with flats - why not install our CST tires and tubes? They are thicker and have better grip, click HERE to go to the item's page.
- Always check for any loose screws in the handlebar, bottom part of the stem (for ES2) and make sure they are tight. This has been fixed in the latest versions, but it's still recommended to double check regularly.
In general, it is very important to drive responsibly and do not abuse the scooter.
However, if you do manage to break some parts and if it is not covered by our warranty we are always here for our customers and are able to provide a cost-effective solution.
For our previous customers we do provide replacement parts at a discounted price. Please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org, quoting your order number and your issue.
Most of the time, the smaller parts are easily replaceable and can be performed by a customer. We have many tutorials available on our 'Help' page. However, if there is any significant work to be done, the customer can send the scooter to us for a repair. We will provide fast 1-2 day turnaround to repair your vehicle.
We are confident in our repair service and will provide 30 day warranty for any repair work completed.
