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.

Q. Do your forks fit on a Razor Pro model headtube?

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. 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. How do I install my Lucky Scooter grips?
A. We get a lot of emails regarding instructions on how to install scooter grips, following the simple instructions below should help you get a grip on things.  

  • Clean bar with thoroughly! Don't leave handlebars soapy or wet.
  • Apply a squirt of hairspray or hand sanitizer inside the grip. (we recommend this method if an air compressor is not available) 
  • Get the excess hairspray out by flinging the grip while still in your hand.
  • Push or pull 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 sanitizer dries, they will not move. 
  • Let dry for at least a couple of hours.    Please Note: It could take at least 24 hour for liquid to completely dry (riding with grips that are not secure can be dangerous) 

Q.How wide should I order my bars?
A. Most riders recommend that the width of your bars should be about the same as the width of your shoulders. this will improve your comfort level and improve your grip on the bars, resulting in longer sessions. 

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 24" bar height, order 22" bars. Please note we modify bars based on bar height and not ride height. 

Q. What are your parts made out of?
A. The majority of our parts are made from 6061 Aircraft Grade Aluminum or 4130 Chromoly Steel.  High quality materials result in strong light products. We back our products with an industry leading 180 day warranty against manufacturer defects. 

Q. What do I need to keep my Lucky Scooter maintained? (general maintenance)
A. Lucky Pro Rider Blake Bailor can help you out. He does the following:

  • Make sure that your compression system is tight.
  • Always tighten axle bolts before you ride.
  • Keep your grip tape clean.
  • Make sure the bar clamp is tight.
  • Keep headset and wheel bearings lubricated and dirt free.
  • Replace any worn bolts at the first sign of wear.
  • Replace worn or torn grips for your safety, as well as others you ride with.

Q. What is the headtube angle on most Lucky decks?
A. The headtube angle on most completes is 82.5 degrees.
