Default Re: New owner/buyer questions

Few new questions.

First, I bought a $5 multimeter at HF and tested the batteries. Each one was at 8, and total at 51. How do you service them? You just add water? Certain amount?

Second, since my batteries are full, I assume it she operating at max capability. The fastest I've had it on flat ground according to gps is 13mph. In north ga it seems to go really slow up hills in my neighborhood.

One of my tires will not take any air. This may be the reason it is slow? Is there any trick to getting the tire to take air?

Also, one of my lenses on my head lights is missing. Can you replace just the lense?

That has to be one of the strangest questions ever asked here. Care to provide any details.

Ya, and to think I went to college. Lol

The tire is reading 0 PSI on my gauge. I try to fill it up and it won't hold any air. I'm thinking maybe the tire just isn't seated properly. These don't have tubes, correct? I've seen something similar on a small trailer, the dude put a ratchet strap around it and it took air, guess it fixed the bead or something.

That would be the way to do it. Could even use a rope just until it starts holding air. Or to be on the safe side take it to a tire shop. Goodyear or something.

the ratchet strap idea actually works ,make sure the bead area or edge of the entire rim is clean and make sure the bead area on the tire is clean and use the ratchet strap to compress the tire down onto the wheel, when it makes a bead and starts taking air you should be able to loosen the strap and pump her on up.

Ok, read the battery stuff, I'm set now!

I will try the ratchet idea and see if I can get it to take air. If I can't what kind of shop do you bring these wheels to for cheap?

Any tire store should be able to air it up.
