Razor electric scooters are a popular mode of transportation among kids and adults alike. With their growing popularity, it's quite common for users to need replacement parts or conduct regular maintenance to ensure their scooter's longevity. One such maintenance task is changing a rear tire, which may seem daunting to some. Don't worry - we've got you covered with this step-by-step guide on how to change the rear tire on a Razor electric scooter.


Step 1: Gather Your Tools
Before getting started, make sure you have all the necessary tools at hand. You will need:



  • A Razor electric scooter with a flat rear tire

  • A new tire designed for your specific scooter model

  • A wrench or socket set (specified size in your scooter's manual)

  • A pair of pliers

  • A tire lever or two flathead screwdrivers


Step 2: Remove the Rear Wheel



  1. Turn the scooter off and ensure it's stable on a flat surface.

  2. Locate the bolts holding the rear wheel in place; there should be two on either side of the wheel.

  3. Using the appropriate wrench or socket, carefully remove the nuts from the bolts. Keep them aside in a safe place as you'll need them later.

  4. Once the nuts are off, pull the rear wheel away from the scooter frame and set it aside.


Step 3: Remove the Old Tire



  1. Using the tire lever or a couple of flathead screwdrivers, carefully pry the tire's lip from the wheel rim. Work around the edge of the tire until it's free from the rim.

  2. Once you've pried off one side of the tire, repeat the process for the other side.

  3. Remove the old tire from the rim and discard it appropriately.


Step 4: Install the New Tire



  1. Ensure the new tire is compatible with your Razor scooter model.

  2. Line up one side of the new tire with the wheel rim and begin sliding it into place. The process might require some force, but be cautious not to damage the rim.

  3. Once one side of the tire is in place, use a tire lever or flathead screwdriver to slide the remaining tire lip onto the rim.

  4. Inflate the tire to the recommended pressure, typically found in your scooter's manual.


Step 5: Reinstall the Rear Wheel



  1. Line up the rear wheel with the scooter frame, ensuring the bolts fit through the appropriate holes.

  2. Thread the nuts back onto the bolts and tighten them using the wrench or socket set. Make sure not to overtighten them, as this can cause damage or strip the threading.

  3. Double-check that the newly installed tire is seated correctly and spins freely without any obstructions.


Congratulations! You've successfully changed the rear tire on your Razor electric scooter. Remember to keep an eye on your tires' condition and pressure, and enjoy your smooth, safe rides!
