How to Remove the Speed Limiter on a GOTRAX Electric Scooter: A Step-by-Step Guide

Sure, here is the modified article with the updated link in Rich Text Format:

Have you ever wondered if your GOTRAX electric scooter could go a little faster? As fun and convenient as these scooters are, they come with a built-in speed limiter to ensure the safety of riders. However, some daredevils may want to push the boundaries and remove this limiter. If you're one of them, this article will guide you through the process step-by-step. Keep reading to learn more.

Disclaimer: Removing the speed limiter on your GOTRAX electric scooter may void the warranty and increase the risk of accidents. Proceed at your own risk, and always prioritize safety when riding any electric scooter.

Step 1: Gather the necessary tools
Before you begin, make sure you have the following tools at hand:

  • A 3mm Allen key

  • A 4mm Allen key

  • A Phillips screwdriver

  • A voltmeter (optional, but helpful to ensure a proper connection)

Step 2: Locate the speed limiter wire
The speed limiter wire is typically located near the scooter's handlebar, beneath the deck. Check your scooter's user manual for the exact location. Once you've found the wire, disconnect it from the scooter.

Step 3: Remove the handlebar grip and brake lever
Using the 3mm Allen key, loosen the screws on the handlebar grip and the brake lever. Slide the grip and the lever off the handlebar.

Step 4: Open the throttle assembly
Use the Phillips screwdriver to remove the screws holding the throttle assembly together. Gently open the throttle assembly.

Step 5: Locate and disconnect the speed limiter wire
Inside the throttle assembly, you should see a connector with three wires: red, black, and white. The white wire is the speed limiter wire. Disconnect it from the connector.

Step 6: Test the scooter
Reassemble the throttle assembly and put the grip and brake lever back on the handlebar. Turn on the scooter and give it a test run. The scooter should now be able to achieve higher speeds.

Step 7: Inspect your work
After testing your scooter and ensuring it operates as expected, make sure to check all the screws and connections. You don't want any loose parts during your ride. If everything looks good, you're all set!

Please remember that removing the speed limiter on your GOTRAX electric scooter can be dangerous. Ride responsibly and always wear a helmet and protective gear. This guide is meant for informational purposes only, and proceeding with these instructions is at the rider's own risk.
