JD Razor 2000 Troubleshooting

Wheels have trouble spinning ¶ 

The wheels do not spin as well as they should or feel bumpy when riding.

Debris between the wheels ¶ 

After you ride your scooter for a while, dirt and debris may build up between the wheels and their axles. This can slow and even stop the spin of the wheel. A good fix is simply removing the wheel for cleaning and oiling. Visit our replacement guide to learn how to remove wheels before applying oil.

Wheels too loose/tight ¶ 

If the wheels do not spin smoothly, the wheels may need adjusting. Use an Allen wrench to adjust the wheel bolt on both sides. Turn the wrench clockwise (right) to tighten and counter-clockwise (left) to loosen. Turn until the wheel is spinning comfortably.

Chipped wheels ¶ 

Chipped wheels have no easy fix. The wheels will have to be replaced. Visit our wheel replacement guide for instructions on replacing the wheel.

Flattened wheels ¶ 

Flattened wheels are over-worn. Riding with flattened wheels is dangerous. This causes a "bumpy" ride which can lead to serious injury. If your wheel's edge has been shaved down to a flat surface, replace it. Visit our wheel replacement guide to learn how to replace your wheels.

Scooter won't fold ¶ 

Cannot fold/unfold scooter for storage or use.

Not holding scooter in the correct position ¶ 

Folding/Unfolding the scooters requires you to hold it in a very particular manner. To unfold the scooter, first place the scooter on the ground. Steady the deck with your foot and push the joint release lever down. Slowly raise the T Bar until it is in it's fully upright position. The joint release lever will lock into place when you have raised the T bar up far enough.

To fold the scooter, steady the deck with your foot. push the joint release lever down and lower the T Bar. The joint release lever should again lock when you have fully lowered it.

Visit the Owner's Manual for a visual guide of unfolding the scooter.

Joint-release Lever needs cleaning ¶ 

Usually when a scooter has trouble folding in or out, it is due to a sticky joint-release lever. To fix this you can apply some lubricant between the parts of the Joint-Release Lever. You do not need to take the lever apart to add lubricant.

T Bar is unstable ¶ 

T Bar shakes or wobbles when riding.

Folding hinge not locked in place ¶ 

Commonly, the hinge that allows you to fold the scooter can make the handlebar wobbly. Make sure the hinge near the front wheel is locked in place so that the scooter won’t fold while in use.

T Bar connection worn down ¶ 

If you have trouble adjusting the T Bar height, the metal around the Quick-Release Lever may be worn to the point of making the whole T Bar wobbly. At this point, you must replace it. To replace the T Bar, visit our T Bar Replacement guide. here

Quick-Release Lever is loose ¶ 

If the Quick-Release Lever is loose, unlatch it first. Then, perhaps with the help of a Hex Key, loosen the screw at the connection. Lastly, close the lever. If the lever still closes without too much opposition, you have successfully tightened the lever.

Quick-Release Lever is broken ¶ 

If the Quick-Release Lever just will not clamp, you may want to replace it (or parts of it). For help in replacing the Quick-Release Lever, visit our Quick-Release Lever Replacement Guide. here

Handlebars are loose ¶ 

Cannot turn the scooter easily or handlebars shake.

Fastening Button ¶ 

The fastening buttons are the pair of gold painted buttons that link the top center of the T Bar with the handlebars. Be sure that the fastening buttons are correctly aligned with their holes. If they are not aligned, the handlebars may come out while the scooter is in use. If a button is missing, visit our fastening button replacement guide. here

Broken String ¶ 

The string that connects each handlebar together may be snapped. This can cause the handling to be rather shaky. You may want to replace the string, which requires taking out the handlebars. Visit our guide to handlebar replacement here. here

Missing Handlebar ¶ 

If you are missing a handlebar somehow, visit our handlebar replacement guide. here

Brake doesn't work ¶ 

The brake does not make significant contact with the wheel to decelerate.

Wheels too run down ¶ 

If the wheels are flattened or deformed too much, the brake will not press hard enough. If this is the case, then replacing the wheels should return your ability to brake. Visit our wheel replacement guide for help.

Spring broken/ deformed ¶ 

Check under the brake plate and press on the brake. See if the spring is letting the brake close. If not, the welding and stiffness in the brake may be the problem. Unfortunately, It is not something practical to fix. Consider replacing your JD Razor 2000 or finding a nearby bicycle or scooter repair shop to examine your JD Razor 2000.

It is unlikely but possible that the brake spring could have snapped or deformed. This is dangerous and unfortunately also a near impossible fix. Consider replacing your JD Razor 2000 or finding a nearby bicycle to scooter repair shop to examine your JD Razor 2000.

Wheelie bar gets in the way of the brake ¶ 

The wheelie bar makes it difficult to use the brake.

Scooter is too compact ¶ 

If the wheelie bar is constantly being hit when you try to brake, it may simply be that the scooter is too small. The JD Razor 2000 is fairly small, and many adults may not be able to comfortably ride it. If this is the case for you, consider upgrading to a newer model built for larger riders, such as the Razor A5 Lux. You can also visit our wheelie bar replacement guide to simply remove the wheelie bar. here

Rear foot is too far back ¶ 

The brake and wheelie bar are quite close together. It may just be that you're accidentally hitting the wheelie bar instead of the brake. This can be dangerous, especially near traffic or at high speeds. Consider practicing using the brakes in an empty area at low speeds until you are comfortable enough to not hit the wheelie bar. Alternatively, remove the wheelie bar entirely using our guide. here

T Bar and front wheel do not align ¶ 

Your scooter will not travel straight, despite being pointed straight ahead.

T Bar is misaligned into collar clamp ¶ 

If your wheel does not point in the same direction as the T Bar, your JD Razor 2000 needs to be realigned. To do this, use a Hex Key to loosen the collar clamp found at the base of the T Bar. Align the T Bar so that the handle bars are perpendicular to the deck. Grasp the T Bar firmly with one hand and turn the wheel so that it is aligned perpendicular to the handlebars. Finally, tighten the collar clamp to it's original position.

Wrong Direction ¶ 

Your T Bar might be facing the wrong direction. Try turning it around 180 degrees.
