Belt maintenance

The drive belt is a key component of your electric bicycle, and it is important to keep it in good condition to ensure optimal operation.

Here are a few tips for maintaining your belt:

Step 1

Clean your belt often: use a soft cloth to wipe your belt regularly, taking care to remove any dust and dirt that may accumulate on the belt surface.

Step 2

Avoid chemicals: avoid using strong chemicals to clean your belt, as this may damage the belt surface and affect its operation.

Step 3

Check belt tension: regularly check the tension of your belt using a belt-tensioning tool. If the tension is too low, the belt may jump, while excessive tension can cause premature belt wear.

Step 4

Avoid riding in extreme conditions: avoid riding your electric bike in extreme conditions, such as mud or sand, as this can damage the belt and shorten its life.

Step 5

Replace the belt regularly: Replace your belt regularly, depending on the use of your electric bike and the manufacturer's recommendations. If you notice signs of wear, such as cracks on the belt surface, it's time to replace it.

By following these simple tips, you can extend the life of your drive belt and ensure optimum performance from your electric bike.
