Get the Brake Pedal
This is the initial step that you need to start with. Remove the safety system brakes by losing the nuts or bolts. Once the brake pedals are ready, you can now get to the next stage.
Add Friction to the Drill
In order to add some friction to the drill, you should add the Velcro the chuck drill. This will aid in increasing the friction on to the wheels of the scooter. You can always use the stick on Velcro or any other suitable material that will suit you. After adding the friction, you need to make sure that the chuck is able to spin easily.
Attach the Drill Platform
With the rectangular piece of wood/plastic, position it perfectly on to the base of the scooter. You need to leave some part of it hanging off the left side of the scooter. Using a thread or zip tie, you need to mount it properly through the holes of the brake. After this, you should tie down the platform using the zip ties. Alternatively, you can decide to thread the zip tie at the bottom of the scooter then through the holes to keep it intact.
Add the Drill
In this step, you need to tie the drill down. It should be positioned such that the chuck touches the wheels at the angle. You should then zip tie the drill on to the scooter as you ensure that the drill maintains the right position on the scooter. For you to increase the speeds and friction, you should position the zip ties in order to pull the drill to the wheels. After tightening the zip ties, it shouldn’t slip off the scooter.
In this stage, you will need the cable and handbrake to add the throttle. Place the hand brake on the handlebars. Secondly, you should move the brake cable towards to the drill then position it behind the drill trigger. Ensure that you properly zip tie the end of the brake cable to the handle drill. Also, make sure that the cable doesn’t slip by securing it perfectly. To complete the set up of the scooter, ensure that when you pull the brake handle, the drill is able to move and spins the wheel. With these simple steps, you will get the scooter ready for riding.
