Q. Glossary of Scooter Terms
|Deck||The Base of the scooter in which all parts attach to|
|Headtube||Attached to the base, its purpose is to hold the headset bars and fork.|
|Headset||Is the set of components on a scooter that provides a rotatable interface between the fork and the head tube. The two types headsets are threaded and threadless.|
|Fork||Component that is inserted into the headset and used to mount the bars and also the front wheel.|
|Threaded Fork||Term referring to a type of fork or headset in which a large diameter nut threads on the top tube of fork compressing the headset components to enable proper rotation of the fork in the headset.|
|Threadless Fork||Term referring to a type of fork or headset in which a compression system (ICS, HIC) is need to compress the headset components to enable proper rotation of the fork in the headset.|
|Starnut||A flanged spring steel nut that seats in the fork or bars allowing the connection of a compression system.|
|HIC||Hidden Internal Compression. a shim that is slipped over the top of the fork, a bolt is inserted into the top of the shim, the bolt threads into the starnut contained inside the top tube of the fork, the bolt is tightened to compress the headset components allowing fork rotation.|
|ICS||Inverted Compression System. Uses a 200mm bolt insetered into the base of the fork tube, the bolt then threads into a starnut contained in the base of a standard diameter bar (1 ¼’) enabling proper rotation of the headset components.|
|SCS||Standard Compression System. A one piece bar clamp and compression system, an elongated clamp is slipped over the top tube of the fork, a top cap and bolt is then inserted into the top of the clamp, the bolt threads into the starnut contained inside the top tube of the fork, allowing fork rotation.|
|Bars||Chromoly tubes in various lengths and widths welded together to create a stylish control device used for steering, spinning and lifting the scooter.|
|Oversized Bar||Common name for a bar with a 1 3/8” down tube, the cross bar is 7/8”|
|Standard Bar||Common name for a bar with a 1 1/4’ down tube, the cross bar is 7/8”.|
|Clamp||Available in standard and oversize, used on the base of the bars after installing onto the fork the clamp uses bolts to pinch the bars and put pressure on the fork, allowing proper steering control.|
|Grips||Various shaped rubber material applied onto the end of the cross bar to provide style, control while reducing vibration and hand fatigue.|
|Bar Wrap||A printed or colored sticky back vinyl product,that is cut and applied to bars allowing a custom look for the scooter.|
|Wheel||A core surrounded by urethane, common sizes are 100mm and 110mm diameter; durometer ranges from A30 (soft) to D100 (hard), rebound is also important, more rebound carries more energy and is faster but you lose traction.|
|Wheel Bearings||Two bearings that are pressed into the wheels core, one on each side with a spacer in between, the spacer prevents the bearings from being pushed into the wheel core upsetting the proper alignment of the bearings and axle.|
|ABEC||There are five classes from largest to smallest tolerances: 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9, the higher the number the greater the speed capabilities, The ABEC rating does not specify other critical factors, such as smoothness, ball precision or quality/type of steel used. most common are the abec 5|
|Brake||A foot controlled device bolted to the back of the deck used to control and stop the scooter.|
|Brake Spring||A small spring installed with a spring type brake that allows the brake to return to its operating position after application.|

A. Yes, all of our forks will fit in the Razor Pro Model and Ultra Pro Model Headtube and they will fit any other standard 1 1/8" headtube as well. You need to use a bearing race with our forks, we will not guarantee the fit without the use of a bearing race.
Q. How do you install a bar wrap?
A. We get a lot of emails regarding instructions on how to install a bar wrap the right way. To start make sure the wrap and scooter are at a warm temperature, not hot. It needs to be warm enough to make the wrap easy to handle. You will need something to make a patten of your bar. Trim a pattern to fit the upright first then the crossbar. You don't need wrap to go under your grips.
Transfer the pattern to the back of the wrap and cut out with scissors. Start at the top of the upright portion and peel the backing down and slowly apply to the tube, working down and around the tubing and smooth out any air bubbles with your thumbs.
Place the crossbar piece centered and work it out and around the tube peeling the backing as you go. Again smooth any air pockets as you go. Patience is the key.
Q. Threaded vs Threadless forks
A. Threaded forks have been around ever since Razor started making scooters. The downside with threaded forks is that because of the threads in the top tube, the thickness is actually greatly reduced. Making threaded forks much more likely to break in between where the threads are. The upside though is that you can easily assemble and use you current Razor Pro Model Headset and Bars. Our threaded forks though are made with a much thicker top tube than the stock Razor Pro Model Fork which greatly increases the strength and durability.
Now you might just be thinking why not get a threadless fork then? Well the difference is instead of buying just a threaded fork, when you buy a threadless fork you also have to buy a threadless headset and a compression system like ICS, SCS, and HIC. Although it is considerably more expensive almost all riders these days ride a threadless fork because of the option of buying a much smoother and stronger headset and a nicer compression system vs. using threaded compression
Q. Are your Lucky Bars threaded?
A. No, our bars have no threads on the inside. Almost all aftermarket bars do not have threads anymore. Even the newest Razor Pro Model Bars no longer have threads on the inside. But don’t worry they will still work just fine. All you have to do is clamp the bars with a clamp and you are good to go!
Q. How do you install Scooter grips?
A. We get a lot of emails regarding instructions on how to install scooter grips the right way. To start make sure the grips and scooter are room temperature.
- Clean bar with soap/water bar thoroughly! Don't leave handlebars soapy or wet.
- Apply a squirt of hairspray or hand sanitizer inside the grip.
- Get the excess hairspray out by flinging the grip while still in your hand.
- Push the new grip onto the bar. Use more hairspray if necessary. Don't stop pushing until the grip is all the way on.
- Make sure they are where you want them because when the hair spray or soap dries, they will not move.
- Let dry for a couple of hours
Q.How wide should I get my bars?
A. Most riders recommend that you should use about the same width that your shoulders are as your width for your bars. This is so your arms reach straight down to help give you as much strength, support, and ease of riding possible. 20 high x 18 wide is very popular and is 22x18.
Q. If I need SCS, How should I order my bars?
A. The SCS accounts for 2" inches of total bar height, so if the rider needs 22" bar height, order 20".
Q. What are your parts made out of?
A. Almost all of our parts are made from 6061 Aircraft Grade Aluminum or 4130 Chromoly Steel. We use aluminum because is great to work with and is very strong and looks great, we use steel because for the price it can't be beat.
Q. What do I need to keep my Lucky Scooter maintained?
A. Lucky Pro Blake Bailor will help you out. He does the following:
- Make sure that your compression system is tight.
- Always tighten axle bolts before each ride.
- For maximum grip, keep your grip tape clean
- Make sure the bar clamp is tight.
- Keep bearings lubricated and dirt free.
- If a bolt is stripped (bolts will strip), get it replaced before it is unable to be removed.
- Always check deck bolt to assure that it is tightened down.
Q. What is the headtube angle on the Lucky Evo2, Clover, Strata and Crew?
A. The headtube angle on the EVO2 complete is 82 degrees. The headtube angle on the Crew, Strata and Clover is 82.5 degrees
Q. Which axle do I need for the Lucky Pegs?
A. All of our pegs are compatible with different forks and decks. The important part of deciding on a peg will be which axle to pick for your scooter. All orders will come with axle spacers if needed.
- If you have a Lucky SMX fork, you will need to choose the SMX front axle, which is 4"" length, 5/16"" Diameter
- If you have a Lucky LS fork, you will need to choose the LS/ Razor front axle- 2 3/4"" length, 5/16"" Diameter
- For the rear axle most scooters, like our EVO2 deck, use the Std rear axle bolt- 4"" length, 5/16"" Diameter. Our new Motion and Stinger decks use a rear axle bolt- 3"" length, 5/16"" Diameter
