Compression

Answer: 

The Fuzion Pro X-3 has a threaded fork and threaded headset, so it doesn't have a threadless compression system like HIC, SCS, IHC, etc.

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.

Answer: 

It sounds like your compression isn't tight or you might be missing some parts. Make sure that everything is properly seated and installed, then tighten your compression so that it is snug but still turns freely.

Ask ScooterDad: i have a razor pro xx and was wondering if i could install a threadless fork?

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.

Answer: 

I answered this on your comment, but here's the answer for everyone else as well:

It's almost certainly a 5mm hex bolt, so you need a 5mm allen key. Finding one long enough for IHC might be tough. If you can't fine one locally, Inward Scooters sells them for $5 - District Extra Long Arm ICS Allen Wrench Metric # 5. Unfortuantely, it looks like they are sold out right now. Give them a call and see if they can help you out.

Ask ScooterDad: Is it possible to ics compression a scooter with oversized bars? And with mgp hothead HIC forks as I have some standard sized bars if not?

Answer: 

ICS is for standard diameter bars and ICS-compatible forks only. Also, the MGP Hothead fork says it requires oversized bars for HIC: http://www.thevaultproscooters.com/shop/madd-gear-mgp-hot-head-alloy-thr...
