Ever felt that the wheels on your kick scooters seem to be lagging or becoming really slow even when you’re kicking as hard as you can? Chances are, your wheel bearings are in need for a change after the wear and tear of time. Check out this cool step by step guidance video by Micro Kickboard.
The other reason being – the kick scooter that you own probably did not come equipped with good quality bearings that are up to speed.
Not to worry, here’s a great video by Micro Kickboard that shows you how to change the bearings on your kick scooter in a simple step by step demonstration.
It’s really easy to follow and replicate the steps.
First you’ll need to remove the wheels from your kick scooter
Buy the new bearings for replacement. We recommend these Bones Bearings (4.7 out of 5 Stars on Amazon) for Razor A5 Kick Scooter wheels.
Use an Allen Key or Screw driver to remove the original bearings from the wheels as shown below:
Turn the wheel to the other side and remove the 2nd bearing with the Allen Key or Screwdriver.
Place one of the new bearing into the top of the wheel, and secure it by hitting it firmly with a hammer or mallet.
Turn the wheel around and place the spacer in, followed by the 2nd new bearing.
