Converting a Razor Scooter Electric Motor for Skateboard Use

If you are looking to upcycle your old Razor scooter electric motor and install it onto a skateboard, you have come to the right place! In this article, we will guide you through the step-by-step process of repurposing the motor from your old razor scooter and using it for your skateboard project. Let's dive into each phase.


Step 1: Gather the Necessary Materials

Use a screwdriver and wrench to take apart the scooter, taking care to keep track of the screws and other small parts. Once the scooter is disassembled, remove the electric motor from the scooter and carefully disconnect the wires.


Step 3: Mount the Electric Motor on the Skateboard

Depending on your specific skateboard and motor model, you may need to fabricate a custom mount or purchase a pre-made mounting system. Attach the mount to the skateboard using the appropriate mounting hardware, ensuring that the motor is securely fastened and properly aligned with the wheels.


Step 4: Connect the Motor to the Skateboard Wheels
Now that your motor is mounted, it's time to connect it to your skateboard's wheels. Depending on the motor's design, you may need to purchase a belt, chain, or gear system to transfer power from the motor to the wheels. Ensure that the connection between the motor and the wheels is secure and in proper alignment to prevent any potential slipping or misalignment.


Step 5: Wire the Electric Motor to the Skateboard Controller
Once your motor is secured and connected to the wheels, it's time to wire it up to your electric skateboard controller. Carefully follow the wiring diagrams provided by the controller manufacturer to ensure that everything is connected correctly. This step is critical, as incorrect wiring can lead to damage to your motor or controller.


Step 6: Test Your Newly Upgraded Skateboard
Now that everything is installed, it's time to test your newly upgraded electric skateboard! Switch on your controller, and use the remote to test out the motor functionality. Once you're confident that everything is working properly, take your skateboard for a spin and enjoy your new electric ride!
