Kaha Lite E Scooters

Set up is really simple.

When you open up your box you will find a box with 2 grips, 1 Allen Key, a charger and instruction booklet. Cut the zip tie holding the brake and slip it onto the handle bar on the left side. Screw on the handlebar (L) and (R) and tighten the brake position with the Allen key provided in your desired position.

The tires should be topped off to the appropriate PSI.  Pneumatic tires can loose pressure while in transit. We recommend keeping tires inflated between 50 – 60 PSI for the tubeless tires and 35 – 40 PSI for the tubed tires.

How to Use the LCD Display Console & Change Menu Settings

The LCD Display console lets you control all of the scooter’s functions. Access settings via the Power and Menu buttons on the throttle. Use them to power on/off the scooter, move through the Menu options, and select your settings. On the LCD Display console, there are 5 menu-settings categories:

P0 = Kilometers/Miles per hour setting (0=kph / 1=mph)

P1 = Cruise-control setting (0=off / 1=on)

P2 = Kick-push setting (0=off / 1=on)

P3 = Controller-output setting: Pre-set based on 8” or 10” wheel size – Do not change

P4 = Maximum speed-limit setting (FF=full-function or 18mph / 25kmh or15mph / 20kmh or 13mph)

Can I install aftermarket handlebar grips?

Yes, so long as they match the dimensions of our original grips.  The inner dimension of the grip is 22mm, with a length of 124mm.

Standard maintenance required on your electric scooter

Like any vehicle, electric scooters will require periodic maintenance to ensure they are running properly and to prolong their lifespan.

The most important task is to regularly check your tires to make sure they are properly inflated to at least what is recommended on the tire.  Riding on low pressure is the most common cause for flats, leaks, and damage to the tire of the scooter.  We recommend checking the tire pressure at least once per week, similar to a frequently used bicycle.

A less common maintenance task will be adjusting the brakes, whenever they start to feel loose or out of alignment. It’s also important to keep the brake lines clean of debris and regularly lubricated to prevent corrosion if you are riding in wet environments such as light rain.

If you don’t plan on using the scooter for more than 3 months – see our steps for properly charging the battery for long term storage.

Safety and Security

Our scooters are CE, FCC, and RoHS certified.

Are electric scooters legal?

Electric Scooters are legal in NZ if their output is 300wt and under. This is somewhat difficult to determine given the calculation depends on a number of variables including the voltage of the battery, the amperage and what its peak efficiency is at any given moment.  This is currently under review and new legislation will eventually determine something that is more measurable such as a speed limit.  For now be safe.

Tyres

To better prevent flats from occurring due to punctures, we recommend using either tubleess tire sealent or tube sealent to add an extra protective layer to your tires.

Do the tires come inflated?

Yes – but you may need to add more air upon arrival. A standard bike pump will do the trick. We recommend keeping tires inflated between 50 – 60 PSI for the tubeless tires and 35 – 40 PSI for the Kaha Plus tubed tires.

It’s important to top up the tire pressure often, at least every other week when riding frequently. Riding on low PSI can cause your tires to more easily puncture or develop leaks around the sidewall.

Weight Limit

What is the weight limit?How fast can the electric scooters go?

The speed limit comes unrestricted on each scooter, meaning there is no way to upgrade or modify the firmware to increase the speed limit.  You can, however, reduce the maximum speed by follow instructions on changing speed.

Can the Kaha Lite handle hills / inclines?

Yes, but the max speed will likely be reduced depending on rider weight. We recommend not attempting to ride long distances above a 5% grade, and to avoid anything above a 10% grade to prevent damage to the motor.

Brakes

How does regenerative braking on the Kaha Lite Scooter work?

While the stopping power is much lower on the e-brake, you can sense it’s activation by lightly applying pressure to the hand brake.

What are the braking mechanisms?

The scooter has 3 braking mechanisms. An E-ABS regenerative electronic brake in the front wheel, a mechanical disk brake on the rear wheel, and a pedal brake on the rear wheel that can be activated by stepping on the wheel fender.

We ship to all parts of New Zealand and usually can supply our escooters and parts within 2 working days of placing your order.
