hi from uk the rear brake calipers pistons have to be rotated and pushed backwards into the calipers fully so as to enable new pads to be fitted there is special tool for this to make job easy and if you check E BAY garage/tools and equipment pages there are numerous types and different prices dependant on makers ? however you can improvise/make a tool using a a 1/2 inch square drive socket and t/bar +short extension look at piton and you will see it has slots ? cut away an old socket to provide teeth to fit these slots ? then you can both push and rotate c/wise the piston back into caliper or you can buy the tool ? from motor supermarket if you have time ? hope this helps

It is often a damaged accelerator (Potentiometer). Sometimes the shaft on the wigwag breaks the contacts in the accelerator from being moved too vigorously when going over a bump too fast. A technician would need to repair this for you. Happy scooting. Regards Chris… email@example.com

Relatively straight forward. Pull the brake caliper and tire off, turn signals if fork mounted, and loosen the clamps on the triple trees. Twist them a little for easier removal

Usually when a scooter dies, there is an event that preceded the dead state that caused the fault. What were you doing before it went dead?
The biggest culprit for scooters and power chairs is moisture. With a scooter, there are two components most susceptible. One is located inside the top of the tiller and it is an electonics board about 6"x4" in size. If you had the scooter out in the rain without protection over the tiller, water can encroach into this area and short the board. Or, a coke or coffee spill can short it. There's a fuse on the board and if it is blown, then likely the board is shot as the fuse merely keeps the tiller from going into a total meltdown in the event of a short. Boards run about $25.00 to $45.00 to replace. Inspect it and look for any signs of overheating or corrosive buil-up and see if the fuse has blown.
The second component is located under the shroud beneath the seat. It is a small metal box which is the power control module and it controls all of the operations of the scooter. It has several wires going into and coming out of it (on-board chargers for some scooters will only have one wire going in and one coming out, sometimes two). These boxes are water resistant, but are susceptible to damage if the scooter has been run through a puddle and a lot of water has splashed up onto it. These are several hundred dollars to replace, but first check all of the fuses coming off the batteries that will lead from the battery to this control box and insure that it isn't a blown fuse. These fuses generally don't blow unless the scooter was operated beyond its capabilities, like driving it in sand, mud or other unstable terrain that puts an enormous strain on the motor and pulling a lot of juice from the batteries. Finally, check all of the connections that clip together. Don't rely on a visual inspection, take them apart, and reconnect them all to insure a good, tight fit.
Hope this helps.

Hi. The serial number will be on a sticker on the upright support that holds up the seat. You will have to lift of the seat, and take the cover off the batteries to see it. It should be on the front of the deat support. Neil.
