ELECTRIC RAZOR SCOOTER SAFETY INFORMATIONPRE-RIDE CHECKLIST for Razor e100, e200, and e300 Series Electric Scooters:
Before riding your Razor Electric Scooter, it’s important to make sure your Razor scooter is running as safely as possible. Please check the following items before you get going. If, after checking the items below, you determine that your razor Scooter is not running properly, please consult the troubleshooting section for further information and guidance. Razor Scooter replacement parts can be purchased from the following section of our site: RAZOR SCOOTER REPLACEMENT PARTS
❑ Check All Components
Check that all electrical connections are secure. Check and secure all fasteners before every ride. Make sure steering stem clamp bolts are locked properly in place. There should not be any unusual rattles or sounds from loose parts or broken components on your Razor Scooter. If you are not sure, ask an experienced mechanic to check. If you need a replacement part for your Razor Scooter, Razorama can provide you with Authentic Razor Electric Scooter Replacement Parts at our online store www.razorama.com.
❑ Check Razor Scooter Chain or Belt Tension
Helpful Hint: Chain should be “just taut” -- in other words, snug but not piano-wire tight. BE CAREFUL NOT TO ADJUST TOO TIGHTLY. This could cause the chain to snap or bend the motor shaft. Adjust 1/8 to 1/4 turn at a time.
❑ Check Razor Scooter Brake
Check the brake system on your electric Razor scooter for proper function. When you squeeze the brake lever, the brake should provide positive braking action. When you apply the brake with the speed control on, the brake cut-off switch will stop the motor. Please visit the following links if you need to replace any of the following parts within the Razor scooter brake system with authentic Razor scooter replacement parts:
- Razor e100 Brake Lever Assembly
- Razor e100 Rear Wheel with Brake (Belt-Driven)
- Razor e100 Control Modules
- Razor e200 Rear Wheel (Belt-Driven)
- Razor e200 Rear Wheel (Chain-Driven)
- Razor CT201 Control Module
- Razor e200 and e300 Brake Lever Assembly
- Razor e300 Rear Wheel
❑ Check Razor Scooter Frame, Fork and Handlebars
Check your Razor Scooter for cracks or broken connections. Although broken frames are rare, it is possible for an aggressive driver to bash into a curb or wall and wreck and bend or break a frame. Get in the habit of inspecting your Razor Scooter regularly. If your scooter is damaged beyond repair, we sell just about every Razor Electric product on the market.

❑ Check Razor Scooter Tire Inflation
Periodically inspect the tires on your Razor Scooter for excess wear, and regularly check the tire pressure and re-inflate as necessary. If you get a flat tire on your Razor e100 or e200 Electric Scooter, a new e100/e200 inner tube (200x50) or Razor e100/e200 Tire & Tube combination can be purchased from Razorama.com. If you have a flat on your Razor e300 or e300 S Electric Scooter, a replacement e300 tube and e300 tire and inner tube combination can be purchased from www.razorama.com. Warning: The pressurized air supplies found at gasoline stations are designed to inflate high-volume automobile tires. If you decide to use such an air supply to inflate your Razor electric scooter tires, first make sure the pressure gauge is working, then use very short bursts to inflate to the correct PSI. If you inadvertently over-inflate the tire, release the excess pressure immediately.
❑ Safety Gear
When riding any Razor product, always wear proper protective equipment such as an approved safety helmet, and elbow pads and kneepads. Consider installing a Razor Scooter Handlebar Bell. Always wear athletic shoes (lace-up shoes with rubber soles), never drive barefooted or in sandals, and keep shoelaces tied and out of the way of the wheels, motor and drive system.
Important Razor Scooter Safety Information & Motorized Scooter Safety Laws:
• Any rider unable to fit comfortably on a Razor vehicle should not ride it. A parent's decision to allow his or her child to ride a Razor vehicle should be based on the child's maturity, skill and ability to follow rules.
• DO NOT attempt to modify your Razor product. Each Razor Scooter or Razor Vehicle is designed for a specific type of performance and parts compatibility. Aftermarket products may not be compatible and the use of any non-Razor part will void your warranty. Authentic Razor Scooter replacement parts can be purchased from our site in the following section: Razor Scooter Replacement Parts
• DO NOT attempt to use training wheels on any Razor product.
• Razor recommends that you practice applying the brake at various speeds and in an open area free from obstructions before riding your Razor around others.
• Wheelies and other stunt-type riding reduces your ability maneuver and control your scooter. Take the necessary precautions, such as wearing appropriate protective gear and practice in a area safe for stunt riding and free from obstructions.
Razor Safety Tips:
• Always wear proper protective equipment, such as an ANSI, SNELL, CPSC or ASTM approved helmet and elbow and kneepads. Long sleeve shirt, gloves, long pants, shoes, and elbow and knee pads are mandatory. Always wear a helmet when riding your scooter and keep the chinstrap securely buckled. Always wear shoes. Don’t ride barefoot or in sandals. Keep shoelaces out of the way of wheels.
• Ride on smooth, paved surfaces away from motor vehicles.
• Avoid sharp bumps, drainage grates and sudden surface changes. Scooter may suddenly stop.
• Avoid streets and surfaces with water, sand gravel, dirt, leaves, and other debris. Wet weather impairs traction, braking and visibility. Avoid anything that could cause your front wheel to stop. Bumps have the potential to stop the front wheel. When in doubt, avoid the bumps.
• Do not ride at night.
• Brake will get hot from continuous use. Do not touch after braking.
• Avoid excess speed associated with downhill rides.
• Adults must assist children in the initial adjustment procedures to unfold scooter, adjust handlebar and steering to height, and finally to fold scooter.
• Obey all local traffic and scooter riding laws and regulations.
• Watch out for pedestrians.
• Check and secure all fasteners before every ride. Make sure the steering tube clamps, steering tube extension quick release, and handlebars spring buttons are locked properly in place before riding.
• Replace worn or broken Razor parts immediately. For Razor Scooter replacement parts call 24 hours, 7 days a week 1-888-417-6272 or order online at www.razorama.com.
• You will see people on TV and maybe even people you know doing Razor Scooter tricks and stunts. These are people who have been practicing on Razor scooters for a very long time. Don’t try something until you are ready. Avoid steep inclines and don’t ride too fast — you can lose control and fall. Skateboard parks are not designed for scooters. Never ride in traffic or on the street and watch your surroundings for pedestrians, bikers, boarders and skaters.
• Keep your fingers and toes clear of the hinge when folding and unfolding your Razor scooter.
• Maintain a hold on the handlebars at all times.
A word from the manufacturer, Razor USA, LLC about Motorized Scooter Laws:
“The recent dramatic increase in the availability and popularity of electrically-powered scooter products has been the result of a combination of at least three things: technological advancements in battery and motor quality and performance, cost-effective manufacturing and design efforts of companies such as Razor USA, and strong consumer recognition of the desirability of such products at economically reasonable prices. These conditions now present dramatic possibilities for the present and the future, as they represent zero-emission, low speed, traffic-minimizing and economical short distance transportation opportunities only dreamed of in years past, as well as new generations of children’s toys that make use of electric power. All that…and they’re fun, too. We at Razor USA are proud to be emerging as one of the recognized industry leaders in the development of these technologies. As with any new technology, however, there may be expected to be a period of “adjustment” as the popularity of a product gains attention. Such is now the case with respect to electric scooters. With the increasing popularity of these types of products, there has been increasing attention to the ways in which they may be used. The discussion, as we actually understand it, relates to the question of who may use an electric scooter on public property, like streets, sidewalks and parks – we at Razor USA are unaware of any existing law which makes it illegal to use an electric scooter on private property. Also, at the present time there is no single, uniform Federal standard governing the use of electric scooters on public property. As a result, the states (and, indeed, even individual municipalities within the states) are free to develop their own rules. Many states have enacted (or may be considering the adoption of) new laws, or have re-interpreted existing laws, in ways that may affect the use of motorized scooters, and many municipalities also may do the same. To help our customers in complying with laws and pronouncements that may affect their use of motorized scooters, Razor USA has attempted to compile this listing of state-level “official” websites, as well as certain “general” sites which may help to identify state or local governments throughout the United States. Because the laws can and do vary, and can and do change rapidly, we encourage our customers to consult the “official” information which may be made available in your area.

This resource only applies to electric scooters. All other Razor electric ride-ons are designed only for closed courses, free from traffic. Laws governing the use of motorized products should be checked and followed, because local laws and regulations may define the locations where the use of motorized scooter products may be restricted. It is also important to recognize that there is a distinction between who may safely control and operate this type of product, on the one hand, and where such a safely-controlled product may properly be ridden, on the other hand. Thus, age guidelines are not a substitute for, or an abridgement of, local laws which may address or limit the use of such products. Age guidelines are intended to inform adults about the need to exercise caution and supervision in providing children with access to such products – they are guidelines, not laws, and are always meant to be used with due regard for the skills, maturity level and abilities of the child who may be using the product.” Razor USA LLC
