INCLINE INFORMATION

More and more building have ramps with specified degrees of inclination designed for easy and safe access. Some ramps have turning switchbacks (180-degree turns) that require you to have good cornering skills on the scooter. When climbing an incline, try to keep your scooter moving. If you must stop, start up again slowly, and then accelerate cautiously. When driving down an incline, do so by setting the speed adjustment dial to the slowest setting and driving in the forward direction only. If your scooter starts to move down the incline faster than you anticipated or desired, allow it to come to a complete stop by releasing the throttle control lever. Then push the throttle control lever forward slightly to ensure a safely controlled descent.
WARNINGYou should not travel up or down a potentially hazardous incline(i.e., areas covered with snow, ice, cur grass, or wet leaves). WARNING! When you climbing an incline, do not drive the switchbacks and do not Forms the angle with the incline, it will reduce the possibility of the turning over. WARNINGDo not drive the scooter in the wrong direction when climbing and/or downgrading, in order to avoid injure
The max. safety climbing angle of the scooter is 10
Please see the figure1and 2.

Figure1

Max.15º

Figure2

Max 15º

WARNING! Any climbing the incline which the angle is more than 8 will hurt yourself and break the scooter.
Handicap public access ramps are not subject to government regulation in all countries, and therefore do not necessarily share the
same standard degree of slope.
. SAFETY
Other inclines maybe natural or, if man-made, not designed specifically for scooters, Figure 1 illustrates your scooter’s stability and its ability to climb grades under various weight loads and under controlled testing conditions. These tests were conducted with the scooter’s seat in the highest position and adjusted rearward on the seat base to its farthest rearward position, Use this information as a guideline, Your scooter’s ability to travel up inclines is affected by your weight, your scooter’s speed, your angle of approach to the incline, and your scooter setup.

CORNERING INFORMATION

Excessively high cornering speeds can create the possibility of tipping Factors which affect the possibility of tipping include, but are not limited to, cornering speed, steering angle (how sharply you are turning), uneven road surfaces, inclined road surfaces, riding from an area of low traction to an area of high traction (such as passing from a grassy area to a paved area – especially at high speed while turning), and abrupt directional changes High cornering speeds are not recommended If you feel that you may tip over in a corner, reduce your speed and steering angle (i.e., lessen the sharpness of the turn) to prevent your scooter from tipping
WARNING! When cornering sharply, reduce your speed. When using your scooter at higher speeds, do not corner sharply. This greatly reduces the possibility of n tip or fall. To avoid personal injury or property damage, always exercise common sense when cornering.
OUT DOOR DRIVING SURFACES.
Our scooter is designed to provide optimum stability under normal driving conditions ­dry, level surfaces composed of concrete, blacktop, or asphalt. However, there will be times when you will encounter other surface types. For this reason, your scooter is designed

. EMI/RFI
EMI/RFI WARNINGS
Laboratory tests performed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have shown that radio waves can cause unintended motion of electric mobility scooters. Radio waves are a form of electromagnetic energy(EM). When electromagnetic energy adversely affects the operation of an electrical device, that adverse effect is called Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) or Radio Frequency interference (RFI).
EMI/RFI FREQUENTLYASKED QUESTIONS (FAQS)
The following FAQs summarize what you should know about EMI/RFI. Use this information to minimize the risk that EMI/RFI will adversely affect your mobility scooter.
WHERE DO RADIO WAVES COME FROM?
Radio waves are emitted from the antennas of cellular phones, mobile two-way radios (such as walkie-talkies and CBs), radio stations, TV stations, amateur radio (HAM) transmitters, wireless computer links, microwave sources, and paging transmitters. Radio waves are a form of electromagnetic energy (EM). EM is more intense closer to transmitting antennas, which are sources of emission. The greater the transmission strength, the greater the concern to electric mobility scooter users.
IF EMI/RFI AFFECTS MY MOBILITY SCOOTER, WHAT KIND OF MOTION SHOULD I EXPECT?
This is difficult to predict. The answer would depend on several factors: The strength of the radio waves. The construction of your NINJA mobility scooter. The location of your mobility scooter (whether it is on the level ground or on an incline). Whether or not your mobility scooter is in motion.
The motion of any electric mobility scooter affected by EMI/RFI can be erratic. The mobility scooter may come to a sudden stop or move in an uncontrolled manner. Also, it is possible for EMI/RFI to release the brakes of an electric mobility scooter. Some intense EMI/RFI can even damage the control system components of an electric mobility scooter.
IS THERE ANY WAY TO KNOW FOR CERTAIN WHETHER OR NOT RADIO WAVES ARE THE CAUSE OF ANY UNINTENDED MOBILITY SCOOTER MOTION?
Unfortunately, EMI/RFI may be difficult to recognize, because the signals from radio sources are invisible and may be intermittent. However, the FDA recommends that you report all incidents of unintended motion or unintended brake release of your mobility scooter to its manufacturer and, if possible, determine whether there was a radio wave source nearby at the time of the incident.
One precaution you can take against unintended motion of your mobility scooter is to make certain that you or someone else is not the cause of the unintended motion. Turn off your mobility scooter by removing the key from the key switch when you are getting on or off of your mobility scooter. Never leave the key in the key switch of an unattended mobility scooter, By following these steps, you greatly reduce the risk of you or anyone else inadvertently bumping the throttle control levers and
causing the mobility scooter to move unintentionally
HAS ANYONE BEEN INJURED BY THE ERRATIC, UNINTENDED MOTION OF AN ELECTRIC MOBILITY SCOOTER?
The FDA has reports of injuries that resulted from uncontrolled motion of electric mobility scooters, but it is not clear just how many of those injuries were caused by EMI/RFI.
ARE ALL ELECTRIC MOBILITY SCOOTERS SUSCEPTIBLE TO EMI/RFI?
Each make and model of electric mobility scooter differs in its ability to resist EM/RFI. Every mobility scooter has a particular level of resistance to EMI/RFI. This resistance is measured in volts per meter (V/m). A higher resistance level offers greater protection
. EMI/RFI
Page 10

against EMI/RFI. In other words, an electric mobility scooter with a high resistance level is less likely to be affected by a strong radio source than is an electric mobility scooter with a low resistance level,
WHAT IS THE FDA DOING ABOUT THE PROBLEM?
The FDA has written to electric mobility scooter manufacturers and requested that those manufacturers test their new mobility scooter models to be certain that they provide a reasonable degree of resistance against EMI/RFI. The FDA has stated that all newly manufactured electric mobility scooter models should have a resistance level of at least 20 V/m, This level of resistance provides a reasonable degree of protection against the common sources of EMI/RFI. The FDA has also requested or recommended that: Electric mobility scooter manufacturers clearly label new products with their resistance level or state that the resistance level is
not known, The labeling or informational material supplied with new electric mobility scooters must explain what the resistance level means
and warn users about the possibility of EMI/RFI and how to avoid it. Electric mobility scooter manufacturers undertake an educational program to inform electric mobility scooter users and their
caregivers about the problems associated with EMI/RFI and about the actions they can take to minimize the risk of EMI/RFI.
While there is no exact way to tell if your mobility scooter is totally safe, an immunity level of 20 V/m is generally achievable
and useful, This product has been tested and passed at an immunity level of 20 V/m.
WHAT CAN I DO TO FIND OUT IF MY MOBILITY SCOOTER IS LIKELY TO BE AFFECTED BY EMI/RFI?
If you have had your mobility scooter for some time and have not experienced any unintended motion, it is not likely that you will have a problem in the future, However, it is always possible that EMI/RFI problems could arise If you are close to a source of radio waves, Therefore, it is very important for you to be alert to this possibility, The mobility scooter meets or exceeds a resistance level of at least 20 V/m.
WHAT CAN I DO TO REDUCE THE RISK OF MY MOBILITY SCOOTER BEING AFFECTED BY EMI/RFI?
Here are some precautions you can take: Do not turn on or use hand-held personal communications devices, such as citizens band (CB) radios and cellular phones, while
your mobility scooter is turned on. Be aware of nearby radio wave transmitters, such as radio or TV stations and hand-held or mobile two-way radios, Try not to
operate your mobility scooter too close to those transmitters, For example, if you are on an electric mobility scooter with a resistance level of at least 20 V/m, you should remain at least three feet from a hand-held two-way radio and at least ten feet from a mobile two-way radio, Be aware that adding accessories and/or components, or modifying your mobility scooter in any way, may change its EMI/RFI resistance level and may make it more susceptible to interference from radio wave sources,
WHAT SHOULD 1 DO IF MY MOBILITY SCOOTER MOVES UNEXPECTEDLY?
If unintended motion or unintended brake release occurs, turn off your mobility scooter (by removing the key) as soon as it is safe to do so.

BATTERY DISPOSAL AND RECYCLING
If you encounter a damaged or cracked battery, immediately enclose it ii1 a plastic bag and call your authorized Cheeta Provider for instructions on disposal, Your authorized Cheeta Provider will also have the necessary information on battery recycling, which is our recommended course of action,
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQs)
How does the charger work? When battery voltage is low, the charger works harder and sends more electrical current to the batteries to bring up their charge, As battery voltage approaches a full charge, the charger sends less electrical current to the batteries, When the batteries are fully charged, the current sent from the charger is at nearly zero amperage, Therefore, when the charger is plugged in, it maintains the charge on your batteries but does not overcharge them, We do not recommend that you charge your batteries for more than 24 consecutive hours,
CAN I USE A DIFFERENT CHARGER?
For the safest, most efficient, and balanced charging of the batteries, you should only use the Cheeta battery charger.
HOW OFTEN MUST I CHARGE THE BATTERIES?
Two major factors must be considered when deciding how often to charge the batteries: 1. All day scooter use on a daily basis. 2. Infrequent or sporadic scooter use.
With these considerations in mind, you can determine just how often and for how long you should charge the batteries. The onboard battery charger is designed so that it does not overcharge your scooter’s batteries; however, you may encounter some problems if you do not charge your batteries often enough and if you do not charge them on a regular basis. Following the five guidelines below provides safe and reliable battery operation and charging. If you use your scooter daily, charge its batteries as soon as you finish using it for the day. Your scooter will be ready each morning
to give you a “full day” of service. We recommend you charge the batteries for 8 to 14 hours after daily use. If you use your scooter once a week or less, charge its batteries at least once a week for 12 to 14 hours at a time. Keep the batteries fully charged.
Avoid deeply discharging the batteries.
Do not charge the batteries for more than 24 consecutive hours.
WHY DO MY NEW BATTERIES SEEM WEAK?
Deep-cycle batteries employ a different chemical technology than that used in car batteries, nickel-cadmium batteries (nicads), or in other common battery types, Deep-cycle batteries are specifically designed to provide power, drain down their charge, and then accept a relatively quick recharge,
We work closely with our battery manufacturer to provide batteries that best suit your scooter’s specific electrical demands, Fresh batteries arrive daily at Pride and are shipped fully charged to our customers. During shipping, the batteries may encounter temperature extremes that can influence their initial performance, Heat diminishes the charge on the battery; cold slows the available power and extends the time needed to recharge the battery. It may take a few days for the temperature of the batteries to stabilize and adjust to their new room or ambient temperature,
. BATTERIES AND CHARGING
More importantly, it takes a few charging cycles–partial draining followed by full recharging–to establish the critical chemical balance
Page 16

that is essential to a deep-cycle battery’s peak performance and long life. Please follow these steps to properly break-in your new batteries for maximum efficiency and service life.
1. Fully charge any new battery prior to its initial use. This initial charging cycle brings the batteries up to about 88% of their peak performance level,
2. Operate your scooter in familiar and safe areas, Drive slowly at first, and do not travel too far from your home or familiar surroundings until you have become accustomed to the controls and have properly broken in the batteries,
3. Fully recharge the batteries, This recharge should bring the batteries up to about 90% of their peak performance level, 4. Operate your scooter again, 5. Fully recharge the batteries again, 6. After four or five charging cycles, the batteries are able to receive a charge of 100% of their peak performance level and are able
to last for an extended period of time,
HOW CAN I ENSURE MAXIMUM BATTERY LIFE?
Fully charged deep-cycle batteries provide reliable performance and extended battery service life, Keep the batteries fully charged whenever possible, Batteries that are deeply discharged, infrequently charged, or stored without a full charge may be permanently damaged and cause unreliable performance and limited service life,
WHAT ABOUT PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION?
If you intend to use public transportation with your scooter, you must contact the transportation Provider in advance to determine their specific requirements, How should I store my scooter and its batteries? See .Care and Maintenance,”
BEFORE GETTING ONTO YOUR SCOOTER
Have you fully charged the batteries? See VI. “Batteries and Charging.” Is the manual freewheel lever in the drive (down) position? Never leave the manual freewheel lever pulled up unless you are
manually pushing your scooter.

BASIC TROUBLESHOOTING

Any electromechanical device requires occasional troubleshooting However, most problems that arise can usually be solved with a bit of thought and common sense. Many of these problems occur because the batteries are not fully charged or because the batteries are worn down and can no longer hold a charge
WHAT IF ALL OF MY SCOOTER SYSTEMS APPEAR TO BE “DEAD.”
1. make certain that the key is fully inserted in the key switch 2. Ensure that the batteries are fully charged. 3. make certain that both battery harnesses are firmly connected. 4. make certain that the battery cables are securely connected to the battery terminals. 5. make sure that the front-to- rear harness is firmly connected. 6. remove and reinsert the key.
WHAT IF THE SCOOTER DOES NOT MOVE?
1. Your scooter was probably left in freewheel mode. When the manual freewheel lever is pulled up, the brakes are disengaged and all power to the transaxle is cut.
2. Push down the manual freewheel lever to restore normal operation to your scooter.
WHAT IF THE MAIN CIRCUIT BREAKER REPEATEDLY TRIPS?
Charge the scooter’s batteries more frequently. If the problem continues, have both of your scooter’s batteries load tested by your authorized Cheeta Provider. Or, load test the batteries yourself. Load testers are available at most automotive parts stores. Follow the directions supplied with
the load tester.
WHAT IF THE BATTERY CONDITION METER DIPS WAY DOWN AND THE MOTOR SURGES OR HESITATES WHEN I PRESS THE THROTTLE CONTROL LEVER?
Fully charge your scooter’s batteries. Have your authorized Cheeta Provider load test each battery.
