Answer: 

Unfortunately, no. You could use an SCS, which would raise your bars 1.5-2 inches, but you'd have to cut off the slit, so you'd end up losing about the same amount you'd gain.

Answer: 

It's all a matter of personal preference. Some people prefer taller bars (typically street riders) and some prefer shorter bars (typically park riders), but it's all individual. Generally, your bars should be about waist-height when standing on your scooter with your knees slightly bent. Also, with your SCS, measure from the top to the ledge on the inside of the clamp to find out how much offset your SCS has. If it's 1.5", you'll need to cut your bars 1.5" shorter than if they were non-SCS. That is, the height of your bars should be the distance from the top of your headset to where you want them, minus the SCS offset, and make sure you don't have a slit in your bars.

Ask ScooterDad: Hey scooter dad I have hic compression but I want to switch to scs how do I do it do I just need to buy a scs clamp that can fit oversized bars

Answer: 

If you have oversized bars already and you don't want to buy new standard diameter bars, then you need to buy a full-size SCS that can work with oversized bars. The good news is that full-size SCS clamps usually come with a shim in case you ever want to switch to standard diameter bars. The only other thing you will need to do is cut the slit off your bars. You'll lose some bar height when you do this, but the SCS will raise them 1.5-2 inches, so it should be fine.

Answer: 

It looks like the Blazer Pro SCS comes with a shim, which means it will take standard and oversized bars. Just make sure you cut off any slit on your bars.

Answer: 

Yes and no. I mean, sorta. :) You can use oversized bars in some SCS clamps, if they are fullsize and support oversized bars. But, you will have to cut the slit off your oversized bars that you used with HIC.

Ask ScooterDad: My son wants to get the brandon James sig bars and use a tilt scs but doesn't want to cut the slit off to lose height, what else can we do?

Answer: 

There's nothing you can do. You have to cut the slit off if you want to use it in an SCS clamp, otherwise it will never tighten completely.
