With Razor being the most popular type of scooter on the market, it’s important that people often have the right parts to fix them. The most common complaint about razor scooters is that a certain part will break down at one point or another and it will be difficult to find a replacement. We put together a list of a few parts that you’ll find super useful, especially if you are a Razor owner.
One thing that is important to keep in mind is your Razor model number. Although this number isn’t directly available on the package, Razor makes it very easy for you to find it on their website. You can also find it in the owner’s manual if you purchased the scooter brand new.
Some of the larger Razor products like dune buggies, go karts and motorbikes have the number listed directly on the unit, but if you don’t have one of these, you’ll have to do some digging. After you decide which model number your vehicle is and what part it needs, you’re free to shop online. The most common parts needed for razor scooters are below.
Razor Electric Scooter Parts
Perhaps the most important part of an electric scooter is the battery. Without a good battery, your scooter will not work and for that reason you will have to replace bad batteries immediately. This can be tricky because different scooters take different sizes. The most common batteries are the 24v and the 36v. The 24v battery and battery charger will work well for the Razor E200 and E300 as well as much larger vehicles like the dune buggy. This is a vital resource for scooter owners and if you don’t have a good charger or battery you should definitely get one.

Razor Scooter Wheels
Another important part you can get for your razor is a new wheel. Sometimes the wheels wear down and need to be replaced. If you ride for too long on bad wheels, it can transfer shock to your hands and legs and can make it difficult to ride as fast and efficiently. Getting a new tire or wheel for your scooter is a great way to get a clean start. Its like getting a clean slate and its almost as if you have a brand new scooter! Try a few of these wheels to give your scooter a fresher look.
Razor Scooter Clamps
If you are looking to do some more tricks and you are afraid your current scooter won’t hold up to the wear and tear of the skate-park, its possible that all you is an extra clamp. This will make the handlebars bend less and make your scooter more sturdy. This is a worthwhile investment if you are doing a lot of tricks or if you are riding off-road because it can save you from a break which would be the worst thing that can happen to your scooter. Use an extra clamp to make the handlebar more sturdy and less vulnerable to breaking.
Scooter Grip Tape
If you are feeling like your scooter has lost some of its grip and your feet are slipping off, why not try some new grip tape? It can easily be applied to your scooters deck and once it’s on your scooter will look much newer and it will be much safer to ride. This is a small investment, but the results can be instantly noticed. Grip tape is a great feature to have if you are a serious rider and especially if you like doing tricks.
Pegs are a must have if you do a lot of tricks. These pegs go on the side of the wheels so that you can use them for different stalls. The icepick stall, for example, is when you go up a half-pipe and then on the way down you balance on one peg. There are also stalls that involve two pegs but those can be even more challenging. If you have any interest in attempting these tricks, the first thing you will need to do is purchase some pegs for your scooter. These pegs are a small price to pay for the ability to do just about any trick on your current scooter.
You may notice a lot of scooters mention “bearings” when talking about their wheels. These are little weights that go inside the scooter wheels that continuously propel the scooter forward and help it roll more smoothly. You can really notice the difference between a scooter that has bearings and one that doesn’t. The bearings add counter-weight which keeps the rolling of the wheels consistent and centered. This is helpful for riders who like to get a lot of glide out of their scooters. Where you really notice it is on downhills, where the scooter seems to glide forever after it gets a little boost.
This list would not be complete without mentioning the grips. These grips serve many different useful functions on the scooter. Not only do they give it some attitude and make the scooter look stylish, they can also make a world of difference when it comes to comfort. When choosing grips you have to keep in mind that you will have your hands on them constantly every time you ride the scooter. That means you have to make sure you make the right choice. I recommend to go for extra padding. Not only does the padding make the grips easier to grab onto and hold, it can also greatly reduce the amount of shock that is transferred to your hands from the road. It may not seem like it’s that big of a deal but if you ride a scooter without grips for one day, your hands will be begging for some type of foam on the handlebars. These grips are very affordable, and may perhaps be the best bang for your buck in terms of scooter parts considering how much use you will get out of them.
I hope you have found this list of different scooter parts helpful. Rather than buying a new scooter, sometimes all it takes is a few new parts to make your scooter look good as new. In the long run, this can be much cheaper and much more rewarding in the long run. Feel free to leave any comments, questions or suggestions in the comments section below. I wish you the best of luck in choosing your new parts! See you next time.
