A small tip here - bigger is better. The large diameter wheels clear gaps in concrete or pavement that would hang up a skate wheel or a scooter with smaller wheels. Most electric scooters also handle well in gravel and small terrain features. We don't recommend slamming electric scooters into a curb to get over it like some people do with their bike. This could result in damage to the electric scooter. Simply Ollie up a curb and keep going.

SOURCE: Why is my razor e100 red electric scooter going so slow?

Your scooter is dying the slow death that all Razor scooter owners are suffering. See my related post on this. Anyway, here's the deal..

I HAVE THE SOLUTION!! No, it's not what you're going to want to hear, but I have it nonetheless. The cheapest and easiest way you're going to fix this issue is by firmly grabbing the scooter, hoisting it directly upwards, clearing the rim and depositing it into your nearest refuse container. This is junk at its finest, brought to you from the worst in value and service, the Razor Company.

I did a little investigation into this problem as I too experienced what everyone that owns a Razor scooter does; it works for about two months, then suddenly the "battery stops holding a charge". You can Google Razor scooter issues and get page after page of this happening, along with more pages of frustrated people learning Razor won't do anything about it. But I digress.. back to the facts..

I need not repeat what I've already posted with regard to the issues surrounding my scooter, purchased Dec. '08 as a Christmas gift and not ridden (midwest snow) until the last month or two tops. So as I posted previously, it stops working and I'm assuming it's the batteries. I call my local Batteries Plus store and they say they can help. Here's where it gets interesting.

I bring in the entire scooter and charger. Let me say that I found the charger included in with my scooter.. "interesting?".. as directly underneath the red/green lights there are Chinese characters instead of English words, thus I never had any idea what these lights indicated. That notwithstanding, the test the charger on the spot and tell me it's working and is (pay attention here) 41 volts of charge. This means nothing to me at the time. I learn that testing the batteries in the scooter will take a couple days and they say they'll call with the results.

Before leaving, one of the CSR's engages me in a conversation about his identical experience with the Razor scooter he got for his kids one year prior. The circumstances mirrored everyone elses: it worked for 2 months, stopped working, he checks the batteries, replaces them, still doesn't work, he pitches it. Hearing this isn't making me feel any better.

So the weekend passes and here on Monday I get the call from Steve at Batteries Plus. Here's what he finds: There are 2 batteries in the scooter; one is at 60% of its life (this after a mere month of use) and the other is overcharged and 'swollen'. How can this be I wonder? I followed the charging instructions provided with my scooter TO THE LETTER, never leaving it charged for an extended period, etc. Well the answer is simple- the batteries for this scooter are 24 VOLT BATTERIES being charged by a charger that is outputting 41 VOLTS!! ALMOST DOUBLE THE VOLTAGE! It's overcharging the batteries and frying them out.

Steve said he removed and replaced the batteries with 2 brand new fully charged 24 volt batteries and it still didn't work. He surmised the switch that activates the motor, which is run through the charging system, was fried during its last overcharging.

Ergo, the charger included with these scooters is frying the scooters out in a very short period of time. To replace the charger, both batteries, and the switch would be more expensive than just pitching it and buying another brand new one.

This issie is Razor's fault and they should be willing to fix the issues (cue laugh track here). Go to their site and be ready to laugh at yourself for even bothering. Here's what I found. First I click the 'service/repair' tab, then am directed to the 'Razor Service Center Locater' to find the nearest service center to me to have it repaired. I entered my zip code and it said 'Sorry, no results found'. I then try my city/state, and again get 'Sorry, no results found'. Not looking good.

I then begin reading their return policy. It has a warranty that's good for 90 days from the DATE OF PURCHASE. Naturally, in my case I bought it in Dec. but since there was snow on the ground it was useless until spring; I was screwed before it even was given it's first charge. However, for the regular customer they'll find that even so, it's right at about the 2nd/3rd month when this thing takes it's final ride and as such, and through no fault of your own, your're totally screwed.

There are enough complaints on this scooter on the web that at minimum contacting the BBB is in order, and might I suggest a potential class-action lawsuit? This scooter retails still at $149, and like most of you I don't have $149 to throw in the trash every couple of months only to go and repurchase another "disposable" scooter.

So there it is. Not only are the batteries being overcharged and shot, but collateral damage to the electrical system is being done which is frying the switch that engages the motor and other things. Have your charger checked at your local Battery Plus (no charge) and you'll see they are putting out a defective product, and based on several hits on the internet they are clearly aware of it and do not care.

SOURCE: How can I put chain back on my E200 razor electric

First your going to remove the deck.
Take off the chain tensioner
Next remove the motor and put the chain around the gear
Put the motor back on the scooter with the chain on
Then take the rear wheel off and put the chain into the gear.
Put the rear wheel back on along with the chain tensioner and deck
Your done!

Note: the reason why I say you have the remove the motor and wheel is the get the chain on. So you may only have to partial remove the motor or tires to get the chain on.

How to fix my razor scooter e100?


The E100 is a Kick Start scooter, the Rear Wheel has to be Spun for it to start. This scooter will not start from a motionless position.

Could be the battery.
Put the Scooter on a block so the rear tire is raised. Remove the standing plate to reveal the battery compartment.
Charge the Unit completely

1. Using a multimeter measure the voltage across the batteries. If the voltage is below 20 volts batteries are dead - Replace batteries.
2. Now for a running test. Turn the throttle and spin the rear tire to preform a kick start. Still measuring the voltage. If the voltage is Below 20 volts or if the voltage drops quickly batteries are dead - Replace batteries.
3. If the voltage is remaining around 24 volts for a long period - then you could have connector problems, clean and tighten all connectors.
I use a fiberglass electronic cleaning brush, as contact cleaners leave residue that interfere with electrical connections.

The control module is simple and can be replaced with only a 24 volt relay without the kick start feature or Brake. If you want the brake then you can use two 24 volt relays still no Kick Start.

For those of you who know electrical, below is circuits I developed to replace the controller. This diagram will also give you a better understanding on the Razor circuit.

NOTE : This is not a schematic diagram of the Razor E100 Control Module. I designed this circuit. for my Great Nephew's Scooter.

1. The Brake is a normally closed switch that opens when you squeeze the Brake handle.
2. The throttle is two normally open switches that close when you turn the throttle.
3. The Kick Start circuit is described in the Diagram below.
4. The resistors values may need to be tweaked for best performance.

How i can pump the weels on the back


Hi, you need to take the end-cap off of the right side of the handle bar. It is a black cap/plug that pulls out. You will see a black plastic piece that's about 3" long. Pull that out of the end cap. This is the extension that is screwed on the the air valve. Just place through the hole in the rear sprocket and thread on, and fill the tire with air. When done, unthread it and replace back into handle-bar end-cap and reinstall the end-cap. It only took me 4years to figure that out!

Battery charger shows charged. however when tun throttle, nothing. no indication of loose wire connections. have a pocket mod


Make sure it is not battery or motor, jump the battery + & - to the motor + & -, if it works it will be the control box


30 minute fix for very cheap


ITEMS NEEDED
Get a Potter & Brumfield relay (5 poles)
2-3 feet of wire
4 female wire ends to plug into relay


HOW TO FIX
Take apart razor so you can see the black control box


Unhook throttle plug, this is the one with 4 wires (2 brown & 2 orange on mine)


Wire relay:
85: Ground
30: Red wire from switch to control box, if you wire this straight to battery it will work with switch on or off (killing battery)
87: Red wire to motor
86: Brown wire from throttle plug


Run a wire from 12v (battery) to other brown wire on throttle plug


END RESULT
When the throttle is activated, it closes the loop in the brown wires, triggers the relay, activates the motor


You WILL NOT have the throttle control, it is wide open or off when you activate/de-activate the throttle


This will save you $30 for a new control (brain) box.

I know my batteries are good, but when the handle is turned all the scooter does is click. It sounds like a relay click but the scooter doesn't move. whats the deal?


How do you know the batteries are good? sometimes bad batteries can show a good voltage but when you load them it will dramatically drop. Try to measure each battery voltage while pulling the throttle ( with the drive wheel off the ground of course ) and that should eliminate the batteries as a fault.

Or you could wire the batteries to directly to the motor and see if it runs well.

If batteries are ok, then you may have a faulty speed controller or throttle.

There are a few components to check when diagnosing electric scooter issues.

1. Batteries
2. Wiring
3. Controller
4. Throttle Assembly
5. Fuses

Once you inspect all of these for damage, you can test your motor and batteries, by bypassing the controller, and directly hooking the batteries to the motor. If the motor spins very fast, then you have good batteries, and a good motor. The controller will need to be replaced. If your motor spins slowly, you could require new batteries or Controller, or battery, depending on the results.

Can't fold down a razor cruiser for storage, how do you do it?


There are two steps to release the handle for folding. Pressing the thumb lever is one step and the other is lifting the handle bracket up. The handle is held in place by two metal pins (one on each side of the handle bracket). The pins slip down into a notch on the scooters bottom bracket. If the lever won't push, you will need to spray some WD-40 or other lubricant on it as they do tend to rust. Once you have the thumb lever where it can be pressed down, you can then lift the handle out of the bottom bracket. This may be stuck as well so a light tap with a hammer may be necessary to release the handle.
