Product Information PT Pro Mudguard for Segway i2
On all first production wings, up to the current stock of wings for the i2, the four holes for the mounting screws are too small.
Solution to the problem:
Drill the holes of the lugs from 3.5 mm to 5 mm or 5.5 mm. Then the mudguards are fully ready for use again. The tension in the mudguard is removed.
If the lugs on your PT Pro i2 mudguards have already broken off, we will of course replace these mudguards free of charge. The end date for this is 30.10.2021. We ask for your understanding that we can no longer carry out a free exchange after this date.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
Control after tire change and service also on Segway PT
PT Pro informs,
As with changing tires on cars, it is important to check wheel nuts and bolts on the Segway PT. Especially after
- Segway - Tire Change
- with new devices after the first use
- after every service!!! on the device
- Disassembly / assembly of the wheel rims
Emergency solution leads to expensive damage to the Segway PT - you can avoid this!
The screw connection of your Segway front stand can no longer be tightened? - Be careful!
Often the simple "solution" of this problem leads to a very expensive repair!
Change Segway Couplings - Avoid secondary damage!
Many Segway riders and especially tour providers do small service work on the Segway themselves. Unfortunately, we often find that due to inexperience and lack of training, the work is not done carefully. This is pure poison for your Segway!
We show this with the example of the Coupling assembly.
Segway Gen2 Housing - small crack - big effect
The Generation 2 Segways (Gen2) were delivered until the beginning of 2014, so they are now at least 7 years old, but many have been in use for over 10 years. As with other consumer goods used in the outdoor area, the plastic parts of the Segway age due to UV radiation, vibration, shocks and use. A particular "weak point" of the Segway Gen2 is the housing. This console housing shows cracks and damage in almost all devices that come to PT Pro for maintenance or repair.

Possible cause of error: rotary encoder (Leansteer sensor)
In total, the Segway PT is an easygoing vehicle. Every 1500 km once Couplings and elastomers change, more you do not have to do, so the Segway i2/x2 or seat Segway works reliably his service.
For this reason, many users do not know that there is another, safety-relevant "wear part". This sensor sits in the so-called pivot unit.
The rotary encoder or Leansteer sensor.

Charge the Segway PT the right way - avoid damage
Choosing the right charging cable and handling it correctly prevents damage to the internal charging unit!
The standard cold appliance plugs on charging cables for e.g. PC's are approx. 3 - 4 mm too short to completely penetrate the charging socket of the Segway PT. Both the too short connector neck and a connector that is already under voltage produce small discharges at the contacts, with negative consequences.
The internal charging unit usually handles these discharges several hundred times without any problems. However, the life span of the charging unit can be significantly extended if you get used to the correct procedure.
Caution - more and more stolen Segway PT on the market
Be careful when buying used Segways PT and spare parts!
The news about the production stop of the Segway PT probably scared thieves too. A sale should be made quickly.
Buyers of such offers expect much trouble in the long run!
