too if you’ve been a subscriber to the ginger on wheels channel for a while then you know that i truly like to test every device i get and i generally ride them up until they break i evaluated the highboy s2 pro for weeks with incrementally more difficult and more difficult flights up until it finally broke now what broke it was the throttle spring it may have been and probably was my fault however i’ll pass on a little suggestion to you if you’re riding the scooter on extreme off-road terrain or leaping this thing off stairs or other crazy things you need to be conscious of just how much downward force you apply to the throttle i had it held down all the way when i leapt a set of stairs and when i landed i put in excessive force on the throttle and it actually broke the spring mechanism inside the head system [Music] now for 99 of people using the scooter for basic transport this will never be a problem but for some it might be the fix for the issue is to replace the whole handlebar assembly now this is where things get really iffy for highboy
