Cleaning a bike regularly in an appropriate manner ensures greater longevity, less wear and the best performance.
Tips for cleaning an e-bike:
- Never use a high-pressure cleaner. Use a wet cloth or a low-pressure garden hose for removing dirt.
- Always turn off the bike before cleaning.
- Disconnect the charger, and ensure the charge port is closed.
- If the bike has a Range Extender battery connected, disconnect it from the charge port and remove before cleaning. Clean the Range Extender separately with a wet cloth, and remove dirt from connectors with a soft brush or low-pressure air.
- Inspect the charge port for dirt accumulation. To clean inside, use a soft brush or low-pressure air.
- Before connecting the charger or Range Extender battery, make sure all contacts and ports are dry and clean.
- Regularly clean the Speed Sensor magnet on the rear wheel with a cloth.
- Clean the chain and drivetrain parts thoroughly. Lube the chain with a high-quality lube.
