Answer: 

Envy Reaper bars are aluminum, so the only way to run those are with IHC, ICS, or fullsize SCS. I don't recommend ICS as it is a pain. IHC works great, but you'd need to get a new IHC fork. You could probably use your standard oversized diameter clamp from your current setup. Alternately, you could use the fork you have with aluminum bars, but you'd have to run a fullsize SCS clamp (not a baby SCS).

Ask ScooterDad: Can I run oversized bars on a fasen raven?

Answer: 

The Raven comes with an IHC fork and standard diameter bars, so you'd need to replace the fork with a standard fork and use either HIC or full-size SCS compression to use oversized bars.

Ask ScooterDad: I have a fasen Raven, and I would like to put on hic bars, I then discovered a ihc to hic apex kit with a clamp, however will this conversion kit work with all hic bars or only apex? Thanks

Answer: 

I wasn't aware of this conversion kit until just now. It's a good idea, but I haven't tried it or seen it in person to be able to offer much advice as to how it works. Generally, I wouldn't recommend oversized bars with IHC as people usually try to do this with multiple shims, which creates instability. This conversion kit may work, but I'd be skeptical until I see it working in person.

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.

Ask ScooterDad: Is it okay if i put an scs clamp on my hic bars? i kneed to put a longer clamp on,thats why.

Answer: 

Nope, an SCS won't work as a clamp for HIC because it has a ledge inside the clamp and 2 different different inner diameters for bars and fork. If you need a taller clamp for HIC, look for an oversized triple or quad clamp. However, your clamp should only need to be about 2 inches tall, the same as the slit in your bars. 

Ask ScooterDad: I'm getting oversized apex Bol bars for my vx5 pro and it has ihc compression what will I need to get to make the rest of my scooter

Answer: 

Oversized bars are not compatible with IHC, so you'll need to get a new fork (standard threadless) and either a fullsized SCS or an oversized clamp and HIC shim.
