ICS

Ask ScooterDad: I have a mgp scooter with IHC compression. I am getting Grit invader bars 31.8mm size. It has a starnut installed for ICS. Can I still use the bars for my IHC mgp scooter????? Please help!

Answer: 

As long as they aren't oversized bars, they would work for IHC, but you'll need to drill the starnut out of the bars or push it far up into the bars. Be very careful if you decide to drill it out.

Ask ScooterDad: I have a mgp vx4 extreme scooter. I want to fit envy reaper bars (i have hic compression). If you could tell me what to get that would be great thanks :D.

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: 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.

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...

Ask ScooterDad: I am getting fasen spiral bars and a proto double clamp. do I need to get rid of the slit on bars to get it to fit?

Answer: 

By "Proto double clamp," I assume you mean the Half-knuckle clamp. You want a slit in your bars for IHC, ICS, and HIC. You only want NO SLIT if you are using SCS. Since the Half-knuckle is not an SCS, you would want the slit in your bars.
