Brake

Ask ScooterDad: Hi I would like to buy a flex fender brake but i can only afford one with 2 holes. I have one hole in my deck and i cant drill a 2nd one so could i just not use one of the bolts??. Would it work with just one ?? Thanks

Answer: 

It might work, but it also might slip from side to side, not staying straight because there is nothing holding it in place other than the one bolt. Some Phoenix brakes had only one bolt, but they had tabs that held them straight within the deck. The best advice is to buy the right brake for your deck.

Answer: 

You may only be able to use one of the mounting bolts if the holes don't line up exactly. I don't know if the tabs are the same height and width as the Phoenix Switchblade either, so you might need to trim or remove the tabs.

Ask ScooterDad: Can you bend a 100mm mgp flex brake to fit a 110mm wheel ?

Answer: 

I haven't done it specifically with a Madd Gear brake, but I've bent Phoenix Switchblades and Envy brakes to get them to fit on 110mm wheels, so I think it should work.

I haven't worked on a Pro X3 myself, but try this link from Fuzion: http://fuzionscooter.com/pro/how-to-adjust-your-break/

How to Adjust Your Brake

Requires: 1 Phillips Screwdriver, 1 Small Adjustable C-Wrench or Needle Nose Pliers work as well (to hold the nut in place).
1) Remove the back wheel so you can access the brake screw nuts inside the deck.
2) Peal back the grip tape at the back of the deck until the screws under the grip tape are exposed. If you do this slowly you will not damage the grip tape and it will stick back to the deck once you are done.
3) Use a Phillips Screwdriver to tighten the screw. You might need to use the Small Adjustable C-Wrench/Needle Nose Pliers to hold the nut while you tighten.
4) Once tightened, your brake should no longer be loose. If your brake is still loose, you could add a washer to the nut side of the screw so that there is more surface area being tightened on the brake piece.
5) Put the grip tape back down over the screw on the deck and assemble your back wheel. You are good to go!

I've never seen a Royal scooter in person, but from what I've seen online, it looks like a flex brake could be installed using this method: http://www.scooterdad.com/article/phoenix-switchblade-installation-on-no...

Answer: 

Try grabbing the heads with vice grips, if you can. You can also try to jam a screwdriver into the heads to hold them and use a socket wrench on the nuts to get them off.
