Before each ride you should inspect your board. Start at the rear of the board and work your way forward:
Check that trucks pivot without obstruction.
Check the condition of the drive wheel to make sure it rotates freely; do you hear any abnormal noise from the wheel or motor bearings.
Check the condition of the belts for cracks, slipping on the gears, tears.
Look in the belt cover for debris.
Check that the braiding on the wire harness is intact.
Check that power wires are not showing through the griptape.
Check the condition of the battery case for cracks or hard hits.
Turn on the battery by holding the power button until the light turns on.
Turn on the remote.
Check that the remote trigger clicks and releases.
Check that the wheel on the remote turns freely to the extremes.
Make sure the remote is paired to the board.
If not, pair the remote by quickly pressing the remote power button five times.
Make sure the board moves in the correct direction by putting one foot on the board and moving the throttle gently in both directions.
