SCS

Ask ScooterDad: I have a mgp vx5 extreme complete. It has oversised bars and i want to change go stamdad Apex bol bars. Will it fit/work? If not what do i do?

Answer: 

Apex Bol bars come in standard or oversized, so you can stay with oversized bars. If you want to go to standard diameter bars, you'll have to change your compression system from HIC to SCS or IHC.

Ask ScooterDad: I am buying HiC bars but i have IHC forks, do i need to get new forks as mine came with envy kos 2013 complete or can i just put the bars on the IHC forks as is

Answer: 

If you have IHC forks and you want to use oversized bars, you'll need to replace the fork with a standard (non-IHC) fork. You'll also need to do one of two things:

  • Use HIC compression with a slit in your bars and an oversized clamp

OR

  • Use full-size SCS compression that can accomodate oversized bars WITHOUT a slit

While some people may tell you that you can add a shim to make your IHC fork work with HIC or SCS, you should not use that as too many shims will make the system unstable.

Ask ScooterDad: I have just bought some oversized bars and I wanted to know if it's possible to put the oversized bars on a regular mgp fork

Answer: 

Many MGP scooters come with HIC, which would work with oversized bars. If you're using SCS with your MGP fork, you'd need to go to HIC compression with an oversized clamp and slit in your bars OR full-size SCS (that can accomodate oversized bars) WITHOUT a slit in your bars.

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: 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 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.
