Answer: 

The headset bearings should easily come out of the bearing cups. If they will not come out at all, the cups may have been damaged during installation. Installing bearing cups can be quite difficult and I've damaged them myself before. Take your scooter to a scooter shop or bike shop and see if they can help determine if the bearing cups are damaged or if the bearings can be removed.
