In this article, we aim to showcase not only the outstanding features of the EMOVE RoadRunner V2 – an exceptional seated electric scooter that doesn't break the bank – but also valuable advice on scooter maintenance to ensure it stands the test of time.

For those seeking a reliable, comfortable, and high-performing personal transportation solution, the EMOVE RoadRunner stands as an unbeatable option priced under $1500. It's a beautiful fusion of style, comfort, and power, making it a perfect companion for your daily commutes or weekend adventures.

However, owning a scooter doesn't end with the purchase. To keep your ride smooth and safe, regular maintenance and a good understanding of your scooter's workings are crucial. This guide will serve as your one-stop source for all necessary scooter maintenance tips and tutorials. From scooter components replacements to safety checks, we've got you covered. So, buckle up, riders! Read on to discover how to make the most out of your new scooter!

Overview of the EMOVE RoadRunner Electric Scooter for Adults with Seat


The EMOVE RoadRunner V2 maintains all the fantastic features that made the original model renowned. Equipped with dual hub motors, the RoadRunner V2 doesn't shy away from power. With a top speed of 34 mph and an impressive range of over 100 miles (possible with a battery swap), this electric scooter for adults with seat is ready to take you wherever your heart desires, whether it's commuting to work, exploring the city, or running errands. The RoadRunner V2 ensures a stylish, comfortable, and seamless ride.

Moreover, this new version brings even more to the table. It features Xtech hydraulic brakes for reliable stopping power, a super bright front headlight for excellent visibility during night rides, and a swappable battery for doubling your travel distance. With adjustable suspension accessible with the turn of a knob, you can customize the resistance to your comfort level.

Additionally, VoroMotors has made significant upgrades to the seat on the RoadRunner V2. Departing from the original small plush design, the new scooter now comes with a thick, heat-resistant memory foam seat, similar to the one on the EMOVE RoadRunner Pro. Your back and bottom will undoubtedly thank you for this improvement! Another key upgrade from the original model is the transition from tube tires to tubeless ones. The new tubeless tires are easier to maintain and significantly less susceptible to flats. Furthermore, the new thumb throttle is crafted for enhanced durability, faster response time, and a more comfortable grip. This upgrade ensures a smoother, more controlled ride every single time!

Unbox and Set Up Your EMOVE RoadRunner Seated Electric Scooter


Unboxing a new EMOVE RoadRunner seated electric scooter is an experience brimming with anticipation and exhilaration. As you carefully open the box, a wave of excitement washes over you, heightened by the sight of your sleek, new electric scooter nestled inside!

EMOVE RoadRunner Seated Electric Scooter Quick Setup

Let's get your new scooter ready! The setup is a breeze with just a few easy assemblies. Follow the simple steps below, and you'll be up and riding in no time.

How to Install the Handlebars

The first step in assembling your scooter is installing the handlebars. Before removing theRoadRunner from the box, position the handlebars in their designated slot. Then, lift the 55 lbs electric scooter out of the box using both hands.
  1. In the middle of the handlebars, fold and secure the latch in place by locking it down.
  2. Next, remove the small rubber piece from the slot where you insert the handlebars.

How to Remove and Charge the Battery

The EMOVE RoadRunner makes it easy to remove and charge the 48V 26.1Ah battery.
  1. Insert the key into the keyhole and turn it to the right to release the battery. Gently slide the battery out.
  2. For charging, fully remove the battery, plug in your charger, and connect it to an outlet.

  4. When the battery is full, be sure to remove the charger immediately.
  • For optimum safety, we recommend that you never charge your scooter unattended, like charging it overnight while you're asleep.

How to Read the LCD Display

Once your scooter is fully charged, power it on to view the LCD display. Here, you'll find important information, including the battery indicator, speed, gear level, and total mileage.
  1. To power on the electric scooter, simply hold the power button.
  2. Press the 'M' button to switch between speed modes: (1) Low speed, (2) Medium speed, (3) Top speed.

EMOVE RoadRunner Seated Electric Scooter Maintenance

How to Replace the Front Motor


Over time, due to constant wear and tear, the front motor may become less efficient or even malfunction. In such cases, you will need to replace the front motor to ensure a smooth and safe ride.

Tools

  • 5 mm hex key
  • 4 mm hex key
  • 18 mm socket wrench
  • Electrical tape
  • String
  • Pin tools
  • Spoon tool (2)
  • Scissors
  • Gloves
  • New front motor

Steps

  1. Use the 5 mm hex key to unscrew the four screws under the seat. Once unscrewed, lift the seat up and hang it off to the side. Make sure to wear gloves around the electric components for safety reasons.
  2. Cut the zip tie holding the wires together and unpack the contents.
  3. Locate the front controller and unplug the motor wires in the motor hall. Take a photo of the motor hall and cables before disconnecting for reference.
  4. Using the pin tool, remove the pins out of the motor hall one at a time.
  5. After removing the pins, cover them with a plastic sheath.
  6. Tie the wires together to the motor hall cables using a string. The string will help with routing the new motor wire later.
  7. Bundle the wires together using electrical tape.
  8. Cut the zip ties holding the motor wires along the frame and unwind the wire. Place the wire cover to the side for later.
  9. Now, take the wire at the front and pull it out. If the string ever falls out, you can use the brake line to push the wires through.
  10. Cut the excess string on the end that you tied to the cables, leaving enough to tie the new motor.
  11. Remove the tape and string from the wires.
  12. Use the 5 mm hex key to unscrew the brake caliper and let it hang off to the side.
  13. Use the 18 mm socket wrench to unscrew the motor bolts. Be careful as the scooter's weight balance will change after removing the wheel. Be ready to catch the wheel once it's free.
  14. Bring the front wheel to a workstation and remove the disc rotor using the 4 mm hex key.
  15. Use a screwdriver to remove excess air from the inner tube to assist with the next steps. You can also spray the rim with water to further assist with removal.
  16. Place your spoon tools along the same side and move them in the opposite direction until the tire emerges over the rim.
  17. Be careful not to damage the air valve as the tire comes off.
  18. Now it's time to place on your new motor. Deflate the inner tube even further before starting.
  19. Line up the air valve with the rim and insert it. Use your spoon tool to assist the lift off the tire and the rim where needed. You may spray some water to make it easier to insert. Please ensure that you have a towel to wipe up excess liquid as the motors are susceptible to water damage.
  20. Once one side of the tire is over the rim, use your palms and spoon tool to push in the remaining parts. You may massage the tire if it seems uneven on either side.
  21. Fill the wheel with air to the recommended psi (between 45 and 50 psi) and install the rotor back on by tightening the six screws using the 4 mm hex key.
  22. Before placing the wheel back on the scooter, ensure that the washers line up with the frame on both sides.
  23. Push the motor into the frame and screw the motor bolts back in with the 18 mm socket wrench.
  24. Ensure that the motor cables emerge from the correct side of the scooter so that you can wind it into the body. Get in front of the tire and see if it lines up with the rest of the scooter. Check for wobble to ensure that the tire is fully secured.
  25. Tie the string from earlier to the new motor wires and then tape them. Pull the string at the other end while pushing the cable from the front until the whole cable emerges into the cavity.
  26. Remove the tape and string, then ensure that the motor hall pins have the fins sticking up before installing them using the pin tool. Insert each pin one at a time into the motor hall and push them in until they click.
  27. Connect the motor hall and the motor cables, matching the colors.
  28. Test out the front motor. If it accelerates, organize the controller among the wires and close up the main cavity. Please make sure no wires are pinching.
  29. Place the seat on top, line up the screw holes, and use the 5 mm hex key to screw in the seat until it's firm.
  30. Wrap the wire cover over the cable starting at the motor and working your way towards the scooter body. Use zip ties to secure the wrap cable to the two slots from earlier.
  31. Screw the front caliper back onto the frame using the 5 mm hex key.
  32. If there are any scraping sounds coming from the front, try to realign your brakes and check if the disc rotor is bent. If there's a bent on the rotor, slowly turn the wheel until you see it with your own eyes. Then, gently bend the rotor back using your hands.
  33. Finally, tighten the brake caliper and rotor and place the nut covers back on.

  9. To test the new throttle, pin the wires into the white connector as follows: red to red, yellow to green, and black to black.
  10. For the last two wires, yellow and blue, which determine the single and dual motor functions, first try connecting yellow to yellow and blue to blue.
  11. Power on your scooter and test both the single and dual motor functions. If the buttons are flipped, swap the yellow to blue and the blue to yellow.
  12. Take a picture of the wire orientation and disconnect them from the white connector.
  13. Thread a flexible wire through the right tube.
  14. Tape the throttle line to your wire and slowly pull it through until it reaches the controller box.
  15. Use a knife to lift the locking pins and insert them into the black connector in the same orientation as earlier.
  16. Plug it into the white connector and power on your scooter to test that everything functions properly.
  17. Organize the wires and place the seat back into its position. Align the seat holes and secure it in place with the 5 mm hex key.
