Oversized

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.

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.

Answer: 

The Fasen Raven uses an IHC fork and IHC compression with a standard diameter clamp and standard diameter bars. You wouldn't be able to use any oversized bars without changing out your fork, clamp, and compression system.

Ask ScooterDad: can I get oversized bars to fit ihc compression

Answer: 

You might technically be able to get oversized bars to fit IHC by using the IHC shim and the HIC shim, but that would create a very unstable system. I do not recommend going with this method. If you want to use oversized bars, you need a standard fork and HIC or full-size SCS. If you want to use IHC, you need standard diameter bars.

Ask ScooterDad: what kind of clamp do u use with HIC

Answer: 

HIC requires oversized bars, so any oversized clamp would work.

Ask ScooterDad: I'm Wondering If I Can Convert Standard Scooter Bars Into Oversized Bars. Is That Possible??

Answer: 

It's sorta-possible. Some bar builders have done what they call "tapering" bars. This is the process by which a larger, oversized bar (pipe) is welded over the standard diameter bars that have been cut shorter. Essentially, it makes the bars look like this terrible diagram:

 

----
|  |
|  |
|  |                              |--------------------|
|  |--------------------------------------             |
|  |--------------------------------------             |
|  |                              |
--------------------|
|  |

|  |
----
 

However, that's not a very practical solution since it requires welding. The short answer is no, you can't up-convert standard diameter bars to oversized bars.
