Question about Razor MX500 Dirt Rocket

1 Answer

My razor mx 500 motor won't turn.

The motor shaft turns about 1/4 of a turn when I hit the throttle so I know its getting juice but then it stops. Even when disconnected from the chain with no load on it. New fully charged batteries. I thought it was the motor so I bought a new one but itstill has the same problem. Any help? thanks!

I think you are talking about an electric motor on your bike . If the motor is New you may have a bad throttle switch . You can use an ohm meter to check the throttle switch . Connect the two leads of the ohm meter to the wires of the throttle switch ( dissconected) . As you turn the throttle the ohm reading should coraspond to how much you turn it .

SOURCE: my razor mx500 is not

Look hard for loose wires. Start with the on off switch. Make sure all are plugged up. The fuse should be accessible without taking things apart. Water is a major enemy of the solid state box the wires go into before they go to the battery.

My ground force razor drifter drive slow with a full charge it won't go fast


Well most likely, your batteries are weak. When the charger shuts off, the batteries have stopped taking charge, but they're not necessarily at full strength, especially if they've been sitting for a while without being charged. Connect the wires from the power switch together and try again. If it works replace the switch. If not, turn the motor shaft both ways. If it makes clunking noises, it's cooked. Otherwise you probably need batteries. Ive never seen a throttle or controller cause slow operation. And also always keep your tires pumped up.

The scooter will go but when throttle is released it keeps going and won't slow down?


I had this problem too. U need to twist on it and jam it until it turns off. Twist it back/forward. U can also pull in brake. The brake automaticaly deactivates motor. Hold brake until STOPPED then let go. The scooter will stay

plz.we have to use a little common scense in this case.The razor-dirt rocket 500/or any model that run on _Electricity can not get "wet" for any reason.For example what happens when you drive a remote control car in water? The electrical motor dies,not before smoking first. It is nyeve of the manufacture to not a protective cover on or around the motor, which electricity flows inside. the 3 vent holes is for heat ventilation
