Scooters - Buying Guide Info About Gas Scooters & Electric Scooters
Searching for gas scooters or electric scooters and not sure which model to choose? Let us and our 10+ years experience in the scooter business help you make the best decision and remember that we carry spare parts for gas scooters and electric scooters.

Gas scooters are for people who demand more power, speed, and want to travel longer distances without recharging batteries. These gas scooters are really fun to ride and will keep you entertained for hours. If you are looking to do freestyle tricks and jumps, then a gas scooter is for you. Check out our full range of gas scooters.

2 speed gas scooters are just like the other gas scooters except they have 2 speeds to switch between. Which is really nice if you are climbing steep inclines. Now you can switch to the lower gear for more power just like a car!

Electric scooters are quieter, cleaner, and easier to use than gas powered scooters. No more worrying about the neighbors complaining of noise. Electric scooters are whisper quiet.

There are two general categories of scooter tires on which stand-up scooters travel--hard tires and air tires. Hard tires are generally six in diameter and constructed of a hard-plastic insert surrounded by a solid rubber tire. Air tires are most often 10 inches in diameter. They are constructed of a steel or aluminum split rim, an inner tube and rubber tire. Other, less common wheel and tire types include 8 inch and 13 inch air tires.

The most simplistic drive mechanism of stand-up scooters is the "spindle" drive. This drive mechanism puts an extension of the engine's output shaft, the spindle, in direct contact with the rear tire of the scooter. In order to function correctly, the tire must have a clean, dry surface which the spindle will be able to effectively interact with. Gas scooters with this type of direct transmission can be pull started with the rear wheel off of the ground or "bump" started by forcefully pushing the scooter with the rear tire in contact with the ground.

Simple chain reduction drives are also used to transfer energy to the rear wheel from the engine. These generally incorporate a type of centrifugal clutch to allow the gas scooter engine to idle independently. The chain drive is generally more efficient and predictable in all conditions than the spindle drive.

Belt reduction drives use the combination of wide flat "cog" belts and pulleys to transfer power to the rear scooter wheel. Like chain drives, belt drives include a centrifugal clutch. As opposed to chain drives, belt drives require less maintenance and no lubrication. Belt drives are also more susceptible to breakage in off-road conditions.
