Maintenance Tips, Tricks, & Aftercare

What’s excellent about Dualtron electric scooters is that (when compared to a bike or car) they’re low-maintenance. The most common maintenance requires brake pads, tubes, and tire changes. The cost of maintenance & repairs can add up; I recommend most owners learn how to at least change their brake pads and tires on their own. Not only will you save money, but it’s also a very satisfying hobby.

Dualtron Electric Scooter Maintenance

I get all of my parts from MiniMotors USA and the Official Dualtron Store on Aliexpress. MiniMotors USA stocks most parts, has 2 day shipping and great customer service. They also have a bunch of aftermarket parts no listed on their site, reach out to them to see what they have in stock.

See also  MiniMotors USA Launches the Dualtron Victor Luxury, +40 MPH Electric Scooter

The official store has less common parts (straight from the factory), great customer service, but shipping can take 1-2 months. They offer 2 week expedited shipping at an additional cost.

Most Common Dualtron Maintenance Parts:

  1. Brake pads – Very important to maintain, could make the difference between life and death! Pads are easy and cheap to change and will vary depending on mechanical or hydraulic calipers and systems.
  2. Tubes & Tires – You’ll need to change tubes and tires regularly. Usually +1,000 miles or visual ware and tare.
  3. Tire Sealant – Armor Dilloz is my preferred sealant to prevent tire pinches and flat tires

Less Frequent Maintenance Parts:

  • Drum Brakes, Mechanical Cable, Hydraulic oil lines – Brake cables need close monitoring, hydraulic lines are the strongest, lowest maintenance, and self adjusting. Although, knowledge of bleeding hydraulic oil has a small learning curve compared to adjusting cable lines. Drum brakes are the lowest maintenance of the 3 brake types and do no use brake pads.
  • Suspension Cartridges – The cartridges allow you to change the feel of your suspension. Each cartridge uses a color rod system (Soft Green, Medium, Soft Blue, Medium White, Medium Hard Red, Hard Black). Softer cartridges are for off road or solid tires. Harder cartridges are used for higher speed stability.
  • Headset Repair – The headset of the scooter is where the stem meets swing arm and motor. This piece allows you to fold the scooter and turn the handle bars left and right. Headset consist of a stem bolt, bearings, hinge, and crown. Repairs for headsets usually occurs between 1-3 years of usage. Riders who need to repair their headset will notice stem wobble or stem play.

Having the right tools can make the difference between executing a successful repair or damaging your parts. Purchasing good quality tools will serve you in the long run and save you time and money down the line.

Here are my essential tools to repair, maintain, and take apart a Dualtron electric scooter:

  • Ratchet – Heavy extendable duty ratchet to remove any nut or bolt
  • Socket flat – Metric hex socket to remove any bolt with precision
  • Socket round – Metric hex socket to remove any bolt at an angle
  • T handles Metric Keys – Metric hex key for hard and soft torque
  • Short handles – Great to keep in your bag and make repairs on the road
  • Xiaomi Air Pump – This is a must have for keeping your tire pressure on point and prevent flat tires
  • Dualtron Crown Tool – Tool is used to open and remove the crown from headset
  • Loctite – Thread locker to help keep your screws and components tight after repair. Loctite is commonly applied to headset and motor/rims.

Cleaning Dualtron Electric Scooter Tips & Tricks

Soap, Water & Towel

Cleaning your Dualtron regularly will help promote the longevity of your scooters chassis, components, and drivetrain. To clean, some owners use mild dish washing soap, water, and a clean towel to wipe down.

For the deck cover and grip tape, I remove the deck from the scooter, and pour soapy water on the grip tape, then give it a light scrub with an old tooth brush until the caked on dirt and mud is off. Gently rinses the cover and let air dry before reinstalling.

Chemical Solutions

Lately, I’ve been using the Chemical guys Synthetic Quick Detailing spray. The quick detailer is a gentle, waterless formula that provides a streak free shine without damaging the chassis coating.

I use it as an all purpose spray and have been pretty happy with the results, my scooter looks brand new after each wipe down.

Recommended Dualtron Electric Scooter Cleaning Tools

  • Too remove dirt use an old tooth brush
  • Unused paint brush (big and small for small hard to reach places)
  • Clean new or used towel
  • Paper towel (some times these leave lint on your scooters Finnish)
  • Grip tape cleaner for quick touch pus
  • Dish Washing Soap
  • Water
  • Waterless Synthetic Quick Detailing spray.
  • Alcohol for any tough grease or Brake Mineral oil spills

Dualtron Tire Change

Changing the tires on a Dualtron electric scooter is a very similar process on most models. You will need to remove the swing arms, the rim screws, swap the tire and tubes, then reassembled all the parts in reverse. Please be careful when removing the rim screws, you may strip the bolts. Make sure to heat the screws with a heat gun or torch, to loosen the glue. 

Here are some videos on how to change tires:

Dualtron Riding Tips & MiniMotors Throttle Operation

Safety

Riding and operating an electric scooter is absolutely fun, but can also be dangerous. Make sure to wear protective gear, know your routes, and abide by local traffic laws. I can’t stress this enough, but my full face helmet has saved my life, jaw, face, and the back of my head, on more than one occasion. All of the times I’ve taken a fall were moments where I was riding at slow speeds and were caused by other people on the road.

Recommended Electric Scooter Protective Gear:

  1. Full face helmet
  2. Riding Gloves
  3. Knees and elbow guards

How to Operate a Dualtron Electric Scooter:

Riding a Dualtron has a small learning curve, once you get the hang of it, you’ll be on your way to countless fun filled riding miles. Before operating your Dualtron, please read the entire owners manual from front to back. Theres critical information on operation, safety, maintenance, and detailed information on how to troubleshoot system errors. 

How to Customize MiniMotors EYE Display Settings:

If this is your first time riding a Dualtron, make sure to dial all of the settings down on your first ride. Here are the P Settings explained on your MiniMotors EYE Throttle, please check user manual for your right settings. 

  • P0: This is the Motor size setting in inches
  • P1: Voltage of your Battery
  • P2: This sets the number of Magnets on your motor
  • P3: Sets the signal for speed detection
  • P4: Speed Unit  (0 for KM, 1 for MPH)
  • P5: Start Method prevents accidental throttle (0 – instant, 1 – kick start)
  • P6: Cruise Mode (0 – off, 1 – on)
  • P7: Slow Start (acceleration curve) (0: Fast, 5: slow)
  • P8: Max Output for speed ( 5 – 100%)
  • P9: Battery Save – Effects performance and speed (1 max, 2 mid, 3 no save)
  • PA: Electric Brake strength (0 Off, 5 Powerful)
  • PB: LCD brightness (0 Off, 5 Brightest)
  • PC: Auto off (1 – 30 minutes)
  • PD: ABS Setting (0 Off, 1 On)

How to Operate your Dualtron Electric Scooter

Now that you have your safety gear on, and the right EYE throttle settings, heres some tips and advice for your first ride.

Dualtron Pre-ride Checklist:

  1. Take your scooter out to a safe place and visually inspect the scooter
  2. Make sure to dial down the settings, I would use EYE Throttle settings P7:5, P8: 70, P9:1 for your first ride
  3. Check that your brake levers wear correctly, push the scooter, and press on the lever to make sure the brakes work
  4. Check the charge port, make sure the cap is on, this will prevent any dirt or water from damaging the battery port
  5. Check your tires to make sure they are the proper tire pressure. Most flat tires occur due to low pressure tires!

How To Ride a Dualtron Safely

  1. Make sure to know your route, the speed limit, and typical traffic for the day and time
  2. Now turn on the EYE throttle power button, place your hands on the handle bars, place your left or right foot toward the front of the deck
  3. Place your rear foot on the opposite side and to the rear of the deck
  4. Lightly pull the throttle!
  5. Now repeat, and try tapping both brake levers at the same time. Note if you have two brakes, you should always use both at the same time.  If you have a single brake, just tap the one.
  6. And thats it! Obey local laws, make sure to look both ways, and mind your speed and braking.
  7. Practice till riding becomes natural and enjoy!
  8. Always ride defensively, and give other pedestrians the right away. It could save yours and their lives!

Most Popular Dualtron Aftermarket Accessories

What I love about Dualtron owners is that you’ll never see two of the same scooters. Whether if its cosmetic or tuning, each owner will personalize their scooters to make it their own. Here are the most common Dualtron accessory parts explained:

  • Deck Covers and Liners – Deck covers are a great personalization accessory that allows you to really make the look of your scooter unique. They also make cleaning lot easier, one quick wipe down and you’re done! Covers come in all shapes, colors, sizes, lighting, materials and more.
  • Deck Foot Rests – These add on parts are great for securing your feet during riding and heavy acceleration. They also provide a sporty look.
  • Dualtron Mountain Bike Handlebars – Some Dualtron riders like to convert to wider mountain bike handle bars. This upgrade allows for a wider grip and more handlebar space for accessories. Some riders prefer the stock folding handlebars for easy stowage. To upgrade the handlebars, riders will need a MTB handlebar (aluminum or carbon fiber), a MTB stem convertor, MTB stem and a MTB grips. For my Ultra 2, I’ll be keeping them stock, but up to you!
  • Aluminum Washers – These are great for adding color and are also very functional, they allow your feet to feel its position on the deck, which will prevent you from slipping your foot off.
  • Deck Side Sliders – The sliders will protect the plastic side covers in the event of a crash. They also add a hint of flavor to the color scheme.
  • Kick Stand – More stronger and robust kick stands are available. They’re also adjustable in height.
  • Mud Guard – The guards give your scooter the ultimate aggressive and sleek look. They help prevent splash but also make the scooter look very sporty.
  • Tow Handle – Scooters are heavy, the tow handle will help save your back when you need to lift and transport.
  • Kiddy Bar – The bar is great for adding additional space to your scooter for lights, accessories, and more.
  • Seat Kit – These are great for long range rides as standing after a few hours can cause fatigue in the legs. They do add weight and some people don’t like the look.

Dualtron Guide for Purchasing Aftermarket Parts, Tips, Installation & Advice

Owning a Dualtron is a fun, rewarding, and exciting hobby. But it can also be an expensive one as well. Here are some tips and tricks to help save you money, time, and stress.

  • Purchase parts from reputable vendors – Parts are expensive, work with a vendor the community can vouch for. Shipping times, payment, and expectations should be provided. All vendors in the list below have a great reputation.
  • Establish payment and shipping details – Shipping costs and transaction fees are excluded from the price. Make sure you get what you for on an agreed timeline.
  • If using Paypal, do not use friends and family transfer method – having payment protection will save you if parts aren’t delivered, as you can always file a claim. Having the security is worth the extra fees.
  • Set a budget – Your credit card bill will thank you later.
  • Stock up on tires, break pads, and tire sealant – You’ll will eventually need to service your scooter down the line.
  • Service your own scooter – It’s a fun hobby and will save you money throughout ownership.
  • Focus on performance parts before cosmetic – You’ll appreciate stronger brakes, tow handle, speed damper, over a fancy mudguard.
  • Modding – Not all parts are perfect, you may need to drill, cut, shape, and adjust parts to make them fit.
  • Have Fun – Shopping, researching, talking, and working on your electric scooter can be more fun than riding! Reach out to your local group rides.
  • Join the Online Community – Participate in the online blogs to get the most out of our community. Join the Dualtron Eagle Pro Group, Dualtron Storm/Ultra and the Dualtron Electric Scooter group for ideas and conversation.
  • Keep it Simple – You also don’t NEED any of the aftermarket parts! Our Dualtrons are totally fine outside of the box. I’m personally going to keep my Ultra 2 as stock as I can (aside from Magura’s, speed damper, deck cover), I prefer the simpler look. But, to each their own!

I’ve been ridding the Dualtron 3 for some time. I want to upgrade to Magura MT5 E. Is there an issue with the Banjo tube? I have not been able to find any good information for the 3. I don’t want to purchase if it’s an issue.
