Hi folks!
I feel some resistance when I intend to lock the steering wheel to the left side on my mp3.
Compared to other scooters the mp3 always has the front wheels touching the ground and maybe is because that?!
Do you experience something like this in your scooter?

Cheers,
Pedro.

I have no real issues turning the wheel to get it into lock position.

Fred...haha.

on a serious note, are you ensuring you are turning it all the way left when trying to lock the handlebar?

I think my steering lock may have some damage, but I can only seem to lock it properly when the parking brake is on.

Isn't that the way it's supposed to work?

Not nessecarily! I can lock my HANDLEBARS without the handbrake lever in locking position.
