Ignore st2lemans, he has zero idea what he is talking about here and rarely engages his brain before posting.

Decathlon In Zürich have a workshop that perform scooter repairs and will easily perform small maintenance like changing tyres etc at cheaper than "buying a new e-scooter" (lol) prices.. https://www.decathlon.ch/ch_en/ :)

thanks millions, still maybe trying to help

but this decathlon info is very useful to solve this mystery..

so should I go there and request their help and they change the tire? how long would it take do you think if you have any previous experience? should i leave the scooter there?

If they can't do it within 15 minutes you've gone to the wrong place.

Yes, go and take the scooter and new tyres to the workshop. I'm sure you can figure it out the rest yourself from there. :)

You said change the tyres... I have watched them change the tyres on Xiaomi M365 e-scooters. They can do basic changes and modifications.

When you say "repair" what do you even mean?

PS: If it's for more serious or complex stuff then find an escooter specialist like the top link of this google search https://www.google.com/search?q=esco...hrome&ie=UTF-8

Re: escooter repair location in Zurich
 
oke here is the story..

Decathlon said they were repairing escooters before but since they had quite problems, they decided not to do these days.

Ochsner sports and smartbike didnt even just change my tires.

In the end, I return it to digitech service and they took it back (my scooter is under warranty actually, I just wanted to repair, change of the front tyre, it quickly if possible). they will inform me when it is done

As for future tyre changes, you could order tyres (or full wheel sets) online, grab y youtube vid for instructions and change them yourself, it is actually really simple.

Ohhh man this is indeed sadly now true. I just called them as I was like "wtf, I saw them do it" and wanted to confirm for my own future uses and they also told me they did until recently do e-scooter repairs, but now they don't for safety reasons.

So, the same principle applies to the links to the dedicated escooter workshops I provided above, they will do things like simply change tyres for not too much money (vs buying a new scooter, of course). :)

I hope one day some business-minded person will notice this gap in the market and accept to repair them

Might be harder than it looks actually, tons of different models, tons of Chinese stuff for which parts are not available (at all, or anymore), bunch of brands who hold on to their own repaircenters. And a lot of folks repair themselves.

The best thing to do is always research and buy the necessary parts and take them to the shop to be fixed. For user-replaceable parts this should be relatively painless.

Changing tyres can be tricky as they are rather hard, especially 8.5" ones.
I have seen that people upgrade to 10" (might require some modifications on your scooter). They claim to gain a lot of speed, comfort and that the tires are much easier to change and much more resistant.

For 8.5" tires, it's recommended to put a high pressure (up to 4.5/5bar if you are heavy) and use a tyre sealant.
