Frequently asked questions
My scooter feels strange or is making a noise?
We give your scooter an "out of the box" full checklist check and test before re-boxing and shipping to you.
On arrival first of all check and adjust your brakes and choose your preferred "ebrake setting" in your P settings.
Everyone has their own personal brake settings level of comfort. Go through the "P" settings pdf file under "downloads" read this file and understand what each "P" setting does so you can tailor the scooter to suit your style of riding.
I personally dont like a "jerky throttle" or a weak feeling brake so I adjust the "P" settings to my style and level of comfort and adjust the brakes until I am happy with the level of grip on the brake pads.
If something is feeling wrong - dont panic. Most of the time its a simple tweak. You can ask the Weped facebook communities for advice, most of those owners know the answers to your questions. You can also contact us for advice.
We hold many spare parts if something major does go wrong, dont worry it is fixable. Wepeds are designed to be customised and they are easy to dismantle if necessary.

Regularly check the bolts, they dont often come lose but they can.
