Ask ScooterDad: Can I run oversized bars on a fasen raven?

Submitter's Name:

Answer: 

The Raven comes with an IHC fork and standard diameter bars, so you'd need to replace the fork with a standard fork and use either HIC or full-size SCS compression to use oversized bars.

Ask ScooterDad: My scooter has a standard bar size IHC compressor, does this mean that I can fit any standard size bars with a slit on the Compressor?

Answer: 

I assume you mean a slit in your bars. Yes, standard diameter bars with a slit in them (and without a starnut for ICS), should work fine. Aluminum bars might work, but you'd need an oversized clamp.

Ask ScooterDad: I have a fasen Raven, and I would like to put on hic bars, I then discovered a ihc to hic apex kit with a clamp, however will this conversion kit work with all hic bars or only apex? Thanks

Answer: 

I wasn't aware of this conversion kit until just now. It's a good idea, but I haven't tried it or seen it in person to be able to offer much advice as to how it works. Generally, I wouldn't recommend oversized bars with IHC as people usually try to do this with multiple shims, which creates instability. This conversion kit may work, but I'd be skeptical until I see it working in person.

Ask ScooterDad: Hi scooterdad what type of bars fit an ihc compression

Answer: 

IHC works with standard diameter bars with a slit.

Ask ScooterDad: I was wondering what is the best compression system?

Answer: 

There's not really a best compression as they are different and do different things. I can tell you this, however: ICS is my least favorite. I like IHC, HIC, and SCS for different reasons, but ICS is junk. It works okay, but it's hard to adjust and you can only use certain parts with it. Avoid it if you can.

Ask ScooterDad: I'm getting blunt soul bars for my fasen Raven and I'm thinking of cutting down the height of the bars, how big does the slit need to be compared to my double clamp? Thanks

Answer: 

For anything other than SCS compression (which shouldn't have a slit), the slit in your bars should be just slightly taller than your clamp.
