Answer: 

Try removing your wheel and your brake and see if it falls out of the extrusion to the rear. If that doesn't work, remove everything (including headset) and try using a hose to spray it out.

Ask ScooterDad: Hi, I have the first mgp scooter, it is black and I have customised it, but now I am deciding to get a new deck, I was wondering if you could tell me some decks that would fit these forks,

Answer: 

If your current scooter has a threaded fork, you don't want to keep using that fork. You'll want to upgrade to a threadless fork, threadless headset, and compression system on your scooter. If your current MGP fork is threadless, then you'll probably need to stick with MGP decks since they run shorter headtubes and, therefore, shorter forks.

Ask ScooterDad: How long does a scooter fork have to be to run SCS?

Answer: 

Usually the problem with forks and SCS is that the forks are too long and you need to use headset spacers, but it all depends on the fork, the SCS, and the deck's headtube length. There is no set measurement. You'll have to test fit everything or ask the retailer selling the parts.

Ask ScooterDad: Hello, I have a non integrated scooter but want a new integrated deck and headset. Is there anything else that I need?

Answer: 

If your current scooter already has a threadless fork and some kind of compression other than threaded, then you should be able to move everything over to the new deck and headset. Some decks and forks, however, don't fit well together if the fork is long and the headtube is short. You may need to cut the fork or use headset spacers.

Ask ScooterDad: Besides buying a new headset and a new deck do I need anything to convert from non-integrated to integrated?

Answer: 

You can't convert a deck from non-integrated to integrated. That refers to how the headset cups are built into the deck. There is no way to convert a deck from one type to the other.

Ask ScooterDad: i I have a 11.5 Wide shoe and ride park but do grind rails once in a while. I'm also 6'1 would a 22.5 by 4.75 deck be OK for park tricks park riding and occasional grinds?

Answer: 

Unfortunately, I can't really answer that for you. It's all about personal feel. You're going to have to find one and stand on it to get a feel for how it fits you. Some people prefer smaller decks, some prefer larger decks. Whatever you prefer, it's not going to prevent you from being able to ride park or street. If I had to guess though, I'd say that deck will probably suit you just fine as it's a pretty big deck and should be very stablefor someone your height.
