Re: Brake Light Only On When Brakes Fully On

I would just check the general condition and contact cleanliness of the switches. The one on the front brake is worked by the MC plunger and switch on the underside of headset, strip the switch and clean it. The back brake means stripping the pedal out. It may require a new switch. Slacken the back...

Thanks.

your scoot fits in a van no padlock will keep it safe; a tracker and alarm are the best things
I have an alarmed disc lock on the front, but for a few quid i can at least stop them lifting the front end and wheeling it away if the back brake is on too.

Padlocking Back Brake Pedal

Hi all, just read about the genius hack of locking the back brake on using a padlock under the pedal.
Does anyone else do this and if so what size padlock are you using?

Big thanks,
Simon

Re: PX Headlight Won't Dip

Thanks, it's fixed. It was indeed the bulb. A bulb with two elements is a new one to me. Thanks again, this forum is great for us novices.

Are you sure the filament in the bulb hasn't blown . They are double filament. One for dip one for full beam.
I didn't know that. Will get another ordered and see if that works. Thank you.

Re: PX Headlight Won't Dip

For the time being i've gone for the quick fix of permanently dipping the headlight to the fullest using the bolt underneath the light. Seems to be low enough not to be dazzling other road users.

PX Headlight Won't Dip

Hi, when I click the switch down to have the headlight dipped it just goes off.
Very annoying for whoever I'm behind.
Any ideas?
Thanks.

Re: How to change PX back wheel.

Took off both side panels, battery and holder and mud guard and got a scissor jack under the gear selector and it was a doddle. Thanks for the tips.
