Answer: 

You can clean it with soap and water, but you'd need to dry and regrease all the bearings (headset and wheels) afterward to ensure that they don't rust. Better yet, just use a wet rag to clean off your deck being careful to not get water in the headset or wheel bearings.

Ask ScooterDad: I have an vx5 pro and I want to switch compressions to scs what would I have to get?

Answer: 

As the VX5 Pro comes with IHC, you'll need to replace the fork with a standard threadless fork. Then you just need to cut the slit off your bars and use an SCS clamp.

Ask ScooterDad: I have the madd gear vx5 team and I want to switch to scs compression, do i need new forks or do the ones that come stock work with scs.

Answer: 

The Madd Gear VX5 has an IHC fork, so you'd need to replace the fork with a standard threadless (non-IHC) fork.

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: does the Madd Gears VX1 JAM Scooter have a hic fork

Answer: 

No, that scooter has a threaded fork and threaded headset. You would need a threadless fork and threadless headset, plus oversized bars and oversized clamp, in order to run HIC.

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.
