Answer: 

Yes, you can install a threadless fork, but you'll also have to replace the headset with a threadless headset and use some kind of compression. Depending on what compression you go with will determine what kind of clamp and bars you can use. So, yes, you can do it, but it's a lot more involved than just replacing the fork.

Ask ScooterDad: Hi I have a fasen Raven and I'm thinking of ordering oversized apex Bol bars with a pre cut slit, will I have to get a different clamp

Answer: 

The Fasen Raven uses an IHC fork and IHC compression with a standard diameter clamp and standard diameter bars. You wouldn't be able to use any oversized bars without changing out your fork, clamp, and compression system.

Ask ScooterDad: Why do bars need slits and what do slits really do? Are they necessary?

Answer: 

If you have an external clamping mechanism (ICS, IHC, HIC), then you need a slit in your bars. Without the slit, the bars will resist compression and the clamp will do nothing to squeeze the bars against the fork or shim. The slit allows for compression of the bars. This is not true with SCS as you want the bars to be solid and resist compression since there is nothing inside the bars.

Ask ScooterDad: Hi, will sacrifice reo t-bars work with IHC compression? thanks :)

Answer: 

It looks like they are standard diameter bars, so you could get them to work with IHC by cutting a slit in the bars and using a standard diameter clamp.

Ask ScooterDad: Hey, I just got back into scooters, and I bought a Razor Pro XX, bars were too short, so I got some new bars. But they didn't come with a slit in them, do I need to cut a slit in them to be able to get them to clamp?

Answer: 

Yes, you'll need to cut a slit in the bars. Threaded forks and threadless systems require a slit in standard diameter bars and a standard diameter clamp.

Ask ScooterDad: Will HIC bars fit on IHC forks?

Answer: 

You could technically make them fit by stacking an HIC shim on top of the IHC shim, but you should NOT do that as it will be very unstable.
