Winter Scooter Parts

The warm weather is fading away and now the cooler temperatures are right around the corner. It will soon come the time when many scooters, go-karts, dirt bikes, mini bikes, and other powersports equipment get returned to the garage to spend another winter season sleeping peacefully under their tarp. Well, that might be the case in other places, but here in central Colorado the return of winter doesn't slow people down. Perhaps it is because this area was settled by a curious mix of crusty gold prospectors (complete with donkey, pan, and pickaxe), and Bohemian non-conformists, but people here look at winter as just another excuse to have fun. It has been observed that a typical Coloradan's winter attire includes flip-flops, puffy down vests, baggy shorts, and a stocking cap.

Whether you put your scootin' machine to bed for the season or keep it running all year around, the colder weather means it's time to winterize. Just like on a car, you need to check the fluids and belts, inspect your batteries, and give it some protection from the elements whenever it's not in use. The same goes for mobility scooters and power chairs just as it is applicable to powersports machines.

Scooter Covers
If you park your machine in the garage for the season you can cover it with any old blue polypropylene tarp held down by mismatched bungee cords from the dollar store, or you can do it correctly with a dedicated scooter cover of the right size. We offer a number of excellent quality covers for mobility scooters and power chairs, convenient bike covers, and super-handy covers for street-legal motor scooters that you can store in a top case or saddlebag.


Weatherproof Cover for Maxi Scooters

If you have a big maxi scooter, here is how you keep it looking its very best. Our weatherproof cover for maxi scooters is made by Prima, so you know it's the top-quality cover for your machine. Far and away better than any ragged blue polypropylene tarp, this Prima cover was designed especially for today's larger (and pricier) 250cc and larger maxi scooters.


Heavy Duty Weatherproof Cover for Mobility Scooters
If weather or long term storage is an issue, protect your scooter from the dust, rain, and snow with one of our heavy duty weatherproof covers for mobility scooters. Think of these heavy duty scooter covers as a scooter's winter raincoat.

Kick Scooter Wheels
One scooter type that isn't much affected by the season is the humble kick scooter. Unless the sidewalks are covered in six inches of ice and snow, kick scooter fanatics are still out there freewheeling, barspinning, and tailwhipping along. The kick scooter has long had an honored place at Monster Scooter Parts. Beginning with the Razor Scooter of a few years ago and evolving into today's wide range of pro-style models, kick scooters have become larger and far more tailorable to the enthusiast who loves to customize their prized possession. With so many aftermarket kick scooter parts available, kick scooters can be thought of as LEGO sets for older kids (and adults). You can customize your scoot with your choice of headsets, scooter clamps, handlebar grips, and a whole lot more.

Of all our replacement kick scooter parts, kick scooter wheels have to head the list of the most popular parts category. We currently offer an absolute myriad of different sizes, styles, and colors to suit the rider. Whether you prefer a plain but sturdy wheel, or one that reeks of opulence, we probably have just the wheel you want. Kick scooter wheels are simple to install and remove, usually requiring nothing more than a pair of 5 mm Allen wrenches.


100 mm / 98 mm Replacement Light-Up Flashing Kick Scooter Wheel with Bearings
Put a set of these 100 mm / 98 mm replacement light up wheels on your kick scooter and watch the fireworks spin! Also known as flash or flashing polyurethane wheels, these are a great accessory to make your kick scooter truly stand out and be seen.


150 mm Scooter Caster Wheel with 608 Bearings
The 150 mm scooter caster wheel might very well be the right wheel for you to rebuild that peculiar kick scooter, or build your own custom design. Pre-installed with 608 size bearings and a spacer so they can be ready to roll out of the box.


110 mm 841 Enzo Pro Scooter Wheel
841 wheels and pro scooter rider Enzo Commeau have designed the 110 mm Enzo pro scooter wheel. These are the perfect wheels for riders looking to rise above the level of mere amateur and start scooting like the pros.

Many of our kick scooter wheels are sold by the single wheel. Some of you have asked us if they could just purchase one wheel at a time, and we listened to you. Now you can even get one green wheel and one red wheel so you too can be a Bohemian non-conformist just like all of your friends.

For additional information on kick scooter wheels, scooter covers, or any other scooter parts that you may need, just talk to the Scooter Parts Professionals (SPPs) at Monster Scooter Parts.

At Monster Scooter Parts we like to say that we have the parts and the smarts to keep you rolling.

Get in Your Go-Kart & Go

Warmer weather is on its way and now is the time to take the tarp off of the go-kart buried in your garage. Like dirt bikes and ATVs, go-karts seem to wax & wane in popularity from year to year, but there has been something of a go-kart revival lately. Maybe it's because of all the indoor go-kart tracks that have become all the rage, but many motorsports enthusiasts are rediscovering the unbridled fun of roaring around the dirt or hardtop in their own motorized karts. We have been noticing an upsurge in people ordering go-kart parts; everything from carburetors to torque converters, as well as clutches, cables, belts, bearings, and just about everything else.


The Engine
Back in the Polyester Age, (1960s and '70s), go-karts were often garage built affairs that used every type of small gas engine available. Loud, pollution-belching, 2-strokers were common and just about anything in the 4 to 12 horsepower range was acceptable. Today's go-karter has it much easier when it comes to selecting the right powerhouse for their kart. These days most go-kart engines fall into one of two broad categories, the humble "honda-clone" utility engine, or a 125cc, 150cc or 250cc member of the ubiquitous GY6 family.

One of our very best-selling go-kart products is our 196cc 6.5 Hp Honda Clone (GX200 168F) Go-Kart & Mini Bike Engine. This engine is compatible with go-karts & mini bikes from Baja, Carter, Murray, and a lot more brands and models. We offer these modern 4-stroke engines either with or without the electric start option, and they are truly head and shoulders in quality above the junk engines of the past. Please visit our Engines for Go-Karts page to see what else we have for you when you want a new gas-burner.

We also stock replacement parts for the now-discontinued Tecumseh brand as well entire Predator engines and all of their ancillary components.


The Torque Converter
Very similar in operation to the Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT), a modern torque converter takes the place of a traditional clutch in an automatic transmission. The torque converter disconnects the transmission from the engine while the go-kart is stopped, which allows the engine to continue running. Torque converters are commonly found paired up with the Honda clone class engines.

Our 3/4" Bore Driven Pulley 1" Bore Driver Clutch Pulley Series 40 Torque Converter Kit for Go Karts is another of our items that flys off of the shelves as soon as we stock them. This 2-pulley kit is what is known as a Series 40 torque converter and it is one of the best around. When you take a peek at our main Torque Converter page you can see all of the pulleys, belts, sprockets, and gearboxes that we offer for this very important go-kart drive system.


The Carburetor
We sell go-kart carburetors, a LOT of go-kart carburetors to get you back out in the dirt. We have go-kart carb models specifically for the 97cc to 196cc Honda-clone style gasoline engines well as GY6 compatible designs for all those 125cc, 150cc, and 250cc engines. These GY6 carburetors are essentially the same as that found on most contemporary street scooters. In addition, we also offer a number of carburetors for Tecumseh brand small engines. Many of these Tecumseh engines were used on custom built dune buggies and go-karts in years past and plenty are still going strong.

Here's a carb that has become a perennial favorite, our Carburetor with 24 mm Air Intake for 163cc 5.5 Hp & 196cc 6.5 Hp Go-Kart Engines. This carburetor is adaptable to a wide variety of 'karts, buggies, mini bikes, and utility engines.

These fun little machines have been around (at least) since the late 1950s and the idea may possibly have been around even earlier than that. Whether you spell it a go-kart, powerkart, go cart or fun kart, the magic word immediately brings up memories of warm summertime evenings on those dirt tracks surrounded by piles of old rubber tires. It seems that each new generation discovers the joy of these wonderful machines; the absolute most fun way ever invented for turning petroleum-based fossil fuel into glorious unabashed noise!

Rear Lights for Your Bike

Everyone knows that the headlight is a very vital part of any vehicle that travels after dark. Not only does the scooter or bicycle headlight point your way forward, it alerts oncoming traffic to your presence. What some people don't realize is that your tail light is just as important when the sun goes down. A rear reflector helps, and many bike pedals come with reflectors as part of the foot platform, but a red tail lamp is even better.

Here at Monster Scooter Parts, we want you to stay safe. To keep you riding in inclement weather or when the sky grows dark, we can recommend a number of top-quality lights. It's hard to choose sometimes, but here a few of our personal favorites.


Danger Zone Bicycle Taillight
If nocturnal safety is a major concern, or your daily bike commute takes you down poorly lit roadways, you might consider mounting a Portland Design Works Danger Zone bicycle taillight to your bike's seat tube. The Danger Zone is aptly named; the tail light was designed to provide a brilliant and startling display of flashing red illumination in the dark of night, in inclement weather, or anytime you want people to know that you are there.


Redlite Mini USB Bicycle Taillight

The Redlite Mini USB bicycle taillight from Topeak is a compact and lightweight tail lamp with three super-bright ruby red LEDs to ensure that you get noticed on the road when riding after dark. There are three modes to the Redlite Mini that you can use; a constant unwavering red light, a 3-light concurrent strobe, and a swirling blinker that fires all three LEDs in rapid order. You won't fail to be seen with any of these three modes in operation. Powered by a Lithium battery, the Redlite Mini is quickly recharged by way of a standard micro-USB cable.


Spaceship 3 & Red Planet Light Combo
If you need to replace both lights, you can't do better than the Spaceship 3 & Red Planet Light combination pack from Portland Design Works. This set represents two of PDW's most popular bike lights, and they will make a truly superlative upgrade to any bicycle.


Fly6 Rear Camera/Taillight Combination for Bicycles
The Fly6 Rear Camera/Taillight Combo for bicycles is made by Cycliq, and is one of the most innovative bike accessories that we have seen in some time. The Fly6 bike camera offers 1280 x 720 HD audio/video recording paired with a 30 lumen taillight. Easy to mount on your bike's seat post, the Fly6 camera/tail light also offers looping video recording for "set and forget" use. The incident capture protection makes Cycliq's camera a must-have item, recording everything that approaches from the rear or passes the rider; cars, loose animals, pedestrians, and everything else.


To be a tail light or not to be, that is the question.

We can attest with some authority that William Shakespeare never rode a bike or scooter, such handy & useful machines had to wait for another three centuries to be invented. So what (pray tell) does a paraphrasing of Hamlet's soliloquy have to do with scooter parts in this digital age? The English language has never sat around for very long without changes creeping in from time to time. If the Shakespearean lingo that you read in high school sounds a little quaint these days, that's the result of hundreds or thousands of minor changes in the last few hundred years. Spelling and pronunciations can both evolve over time until the results are scarcely recognizable to people living in another time.

A perfect example that is currently in process is the rapid evolution of words that were not even coined until recently. The Digital Age brought us electronic mail, which became e-mail, and is now simply written out... or more often typed out as email; a single word without a hyphen. The same can be said for website, webpage, ecommerce, and on and on. Useful phrases are created, go through a hyphenated phase, and are soon replaced by a single compound word. Ask your favorite search engine for "tail light" and it will give you just as many results for "taillight" (one word). Suggested synonyms will include taillamp, tail lamp, rear light, back light; you get the picture. Like the eternal struggle between the partisans of lug wrench versus those who swear by tire iron, different people can properly use different words to mean the same essential bike part.

Here at Monster Scooter Parts we offer a wide variety of rear-mounted illumination devices that are suitable for most bikes and scooters. We all recognize the need for these safety devices, and in many places it is a matter of local law. Whether you need a headlight & taillight combination, a light-catching reflector, or a flashing rear tail lamp that secures to your seat tube, we have the best scooter or bicycle parts and accessories.

Many Minnies - Modern Mini Bikes

While recently waiting for my taco salad in a Tex-Mex eatery, the dinner conversation turned to the esoteric subject matter of tacos, and how the list of standard ingredients has been enlarged from simple ground beef and salsa to an almost bewildering set of choices including fish, pineapple, avocado, and even strips of fried chicken. Soon the conversation morphed into the etymology of the term taco itself, and how it once referred to a little two-wheeled gasoline powered miniature motorcycle. Fifty years ago (has it really been that long?) "Taco" was a popular brand of mini bikes, perhaps capitalizing on the sucess of the Spanish dirt bike brand Bultaco. So ubiquitous was the Taco brand that the name itself became a somewhat genericized term for the entire mini bike category. It wasn't until the 1970s that a California fast food franchise introduced the taco to most non-Californians as being something other than a mini bike.

Early mini bikes were often garage-built affairs; home projects completely built from scratch or from do-it-yourself kits. Many a Tecumseh lawn mower engine found its second life putting the power into these homemade mini bikes and go-karts. As time moved on the popularity of mini bikes waxed & waned until early Honda models began showing up. Recent Asian imports have expanded the range of available mini bike brands to include Baja Motorsports, Coleman, Motovox, Monster Moto (no relation), Moto Tec, and many others. Most often these imported bikes were sold via the big-box department stores where after-the-sale service and support may be a bit lacking. Monster Scooter Parts was quick to jump on the proverbial wagon and we are able to supply the replacement mini bike parts for most of the popular brands and models.


Mini Bike Engines
Where the 38cc gas utility engine once ruled the mini bike world, today's rider has their choice of a range of engine displacements to select from. The minimum standard now begins with the 47cc - 52cc gas burners all the way up to the big (maxi-mini?) 301cc behemoths. The happy medium of the 97cc Honda-clones or the 196cc - 200cc models are the current winners in the engine popularity contest, and Monster Scooter Parts sells a lot of them. Whether you need a replacement mini bike engine that is compatible with the old dead one on your bike, or you are shopping around for that missing powerplant for your custom garage-build, we offer the best models around.


Mini Bike Carburetors
No mini bike is going to get very far without a properly functioning carburetor, and we have the Honda style, the Tecumseh styles, and the gaskets to keep your mini moving along. Back in the early days of mini bikes, those Tecumseh lawn mower and utility engines were the must-have starting items for the serious home mini bike mechanic. Unfortunately Tecumseh folded a few years ago, but we can still supply the carbs, pull starts, and a lot more for their wide range of engine types.


Mini Bike Tires
Question: What's a mini bike that doesn't sport a serious pair of knobby or V-tread mud slingers? Answer: A mini bike that takes up garage space and doesn't get the loving attention that it deserves. Monster Scooter Parts is proud to offer some of the very best in mini bike tires from Carlisle, Kenda, and other brands. We have knobbies and V-treads suitable for the dirt, the turf, and even the concrete suburban cul-de-sac.


Mini Bike Accessories
So you're not one to follow the herd and you want your mini bike to be as different from your buddies' bikes as you can get it. There is a selection of add-on mini bike accessories that you can use to dress it up in style or make it more functional to suit your unique needs. Baskets and cargo panniers, air pumps and smartphone holders, even decorative valve stem caps; these are the essential elements in any well dressed mini bike. And don't forget your helmet.

For more information on mini bike parts visit the experts at Monster Scooter Parts.

ATV & Dirt Bike Accessories - It's Winter, So Get Out There & Enjoy It!

Today is the first day of winter, at least that is what the astronomers tell us. This is the day with the shortest period of daylight and the longest night of the year. The geese are now on vacation down south in warmer climes, leaving the moles, the voles, and the rattlesnakes to hunker down in hibernation. But unlike the aforesaid rodents and reptiles, the Scooter Parts Professionals (SPFs) at Monster Scooter Parts absolutely love winter. Here in central Colorado, cold weather means outdoor recreation in a big sort of way, and a little fresh snow brings out the mountain bikers and ATV riders ready to revel in the glory of sub-freezing frolic.

The ATV really comes into its own when the roads and trails become sloppy. We have sold a lot of ATV parts over the years and have noticed that despite the many brand and model names on today's powersports market, there are really just a half-dozen or so unique designs that are slightly modified and replicated over and over. It is highly likely that Part 22 of Brand X may be identical to Part 22 on Brand Z's machine.


ATV Fender Sets
Our replacement ATV fender sets will have your mud-machine looking like new again. When you remove the factory applied brand & model stickers, most ATVs use one of the same four or five fender sets. These polypropylene body panels are manufactured by the thousands and are used across the board by most of the name brand companies. This is not a bad thing as it helps keep the price down as well as giving the consumer a number of choices. Just a few years ago if you needed an ATV fender you could get it in any color you wanted, as long as you wanted Red, White, or Blue. Today's ATVs can be found sporting Pink Camo, Autumn Yellow Camo, Spider Red, and a lot more colors and patterns.

When selecting an ATV panel set, let your front grill and headlights be your guide. Simply choose the fender set type that matches the grill and light configuration on your own machine. You might need to re-drill a screw hole or two in order to get a precise fit, but as stated earlier, most brands use the same four or five fender designs. So when that ATV looks a little worse for wear, don't buy a new ATV, just replace the old panels with a new set.


ATV Accessory Racks
One of our ATV accessory racks will increase any quad's utility. The ATV was designed for the rough road (or no road at all) and a good utility rack lets you take your gear in and out with the least amount of sweat. ATV cargo racks can be found mounted on both the front, or the rear, or both if needed.

We offer a variety of excellent, high quality ATV accessory racks to suit your mud machine's needs. Whether carrying heavy tools or equipment into the woods, or hauling that ten-point buck out, we can supply the right off-road ATV cargo racks to help you get the job done.


ATV & Dirt Bike Carriers
What good is an ATV or dirt bike if it's still under a tarp in your garage? You and a couple of your buddies can try to push it haphazardly up a pair of shaky wooden planks into the bed of your pick-up, or you can do it the civilized way with an ATV & Dirt Bike Carrier. Secure the carrier to your hitch, drive the ATV up the metal ramps, and snug it down with a set of straps and you're good to go. Your ATV was made to get you out of the house and away from the cul-de-sac. A carrier let's you get out of town faster, so what are you waiting for?


Mister Smiley ABS Valve Stem Cap Cover
The short, cold days of winter are not all about gloomy grey skies and longing for the warm sun. You can carry the happiness along with you when you ride with Mister Smiley! A few of these novelty valve stem caps may be all the reminder that you need to have you soon thinking of flip-flops and flowery Hawaiian shirts.

Labor, Leisure, & Saving Some Money with Lift Chair Parts


Labor Day, that traditional end-of-summer holiday, has come to symbolize the students' return to school, and the draw-down of the hectic vacation season. One of the truly wonderful attributes of the civilized life is the concept of leisure and its application. The dictionary defines leisure as free time spent away from necessary activities of business, domestic chores, or education. In other words, leisure means kicking back, goofing off, or otherwise relaxing away from the demands of everyday life. The concept is fitting this time of year as we (supposedly) put our collective noses back to the proverbial grindstone. We all know the kitchy image of a clock with wings signifying how time flies. I propose an image of a hammock slung between two trees sprouting a pair of wings and flying off to illustrate the fleeting nature of relaxation.

Hey, that's not a scooter!
The lazy and luxurious concept of leisure has me thinking of how nice it would be relaxing in the decadent embrace of a heat & massage lift chair. Our interest in lift chairs, (a style of recliner chair that mechanically lifts the sitter into a near-standing position), is a natural extension of Monster Scooter Parts' expertise in the realm of mobility scooters, power chairs, and other mobility products. For a few years now, parts for lift chairs have gone from a slow trickle to an increasingly vital category of our business. Our warehouse overflows with lift chair actuator motors, cords, cables, junction boxes, transformers, and more hand controls than we ever knew existed.


With so many lift chair parts passing through our hands we began to notice a thing or two about them. First up we discovered that for all of the different brands that sell lift chairs, there are less than a half-dozen or so companies that produce the actual component parts including Dewert, KD, Limoss, and OKIN. The other thing we learned about was cross-brand compatibility; some hand controls for Brand-X lift chairs work perfectly well on Brand-Z's models. For a perfect example; our Limoss-made Universal Hand Control for Pride Lift Chairs functions just fine & dandy on an array of lift chairs from Catnapper, Flexsteel, Golden Technologies, and more. Very often these "universal" hand controls have much more "user-friendly" price tags as well.

Don't Forget the Kids
The cooler days of Autumn make those leisurely weekends all the more enjoyable for powersports, and now is the time to get those ATVs, go-karts, mini bikes, and scooters cleaned up, filled up, recharged, and ready to go. Whether your machine needs a new recoil pull start, brake or throttle cables, or a set of mud-slinging tires, we probably have just the parts you need deep our vast canyonland of warehouse shelves and bins.


Over the last two or three years we have watched a veritable mushrooming of the electric mini bike category. Every day we get more orders from folks looking for Jetson Junior, Motovox, Monster Moto, and MotoTec parts and accessories. Most of these models are very similar in concept, design, and lay-out; almost as if the same crew of mini bike engineers drew up the specs for all of them. Suffice it to say that Monster Scooter Parts is here for your electric mini bike replacements. We have the electric motors, battery packs, and anything else you could want for your mini bike.

As the kids get older they put their little electric stand-up scooters away or pass them on to their younger siblings. Moving up to these quart-size electric mini bikes is the logical intermediate step that will no doubt lead eventually to 2-wheel street-legal gas-burners, a motorcycle license, and higher insurance premiums to go along with their rent, groceries, utility payments, taxes, and all of the other joys of living in the postmodern civilized world. So enjoy the shameless luxury of leisure while you still can. Summer's gone, Autumn's here, and it's back to school, back to work, back to the real world.

Don't Overinflate That Inner Tube!

Earlier today, as I was holding forth and waxing philosophic with my web colleagues, one of my friends from over in the Customer Service Department came in and asked me if I could write something about inner tubes. Monster Scooter Parts sells a astonishing number of tubes in an almost unbelievably copious range of sizes. We have tubes for electric scooters and electric bikes, tubes for kick scooters and tubes for motor scooters. Our warehouse is stuffed chockablock with power chair tubes and dirt bike tubes... well, you get the picture; we sell a lot of inner tubes.

The Wonderful World of Tubery
On the scale of sheer production numbers, these rubber balloons may not be as common as they once were. Sometime between the Iron Age and the PVC Age, the tubeless tire concept caught on for automobiles, but what is now considered as technological obsolescence for cars is still going strong in downtown Scooterville. Many scooter enthusiasts and  cyclists still prefer the smooth ride that only a pneumatic tube can give. Maybe it is due to their dwindling numbers in the auto world, but it seems that the fine art of properly inflating an inner tube is being slowly forgotten as well.


When inflating your inner tube, please use your best judgment. The recommended inflation pressure is usually molded on the tire's sidewall, and it is sometimes printed on an inner tube as well. Here in the USA, this is usually given in pounds per square inch (PSI).The recommended inflation pressure is just that, a friendly suggestion by the tire or tube manufacturer that gives a general average pressure for the average rider on an average temperature day. The recommended PSI for an inner tube can vary depending on elevation, weather, and air pressure. Because a manufacturer might produce the same tube for a variety of applications, the pressure rating is often a bit optimistic.

To reiterate; these are mere recommendations and should not be taken as an absolute. As an example, an MTB cyclist at a 6200+ Colorado altitude needs a different tire/tube pressure than that which her cousin requires down in his sea level beach town. In addition, a few pounds less pressure on a rainy day will provide you with a lot better traction on wet pavement than you would have if your tubes were filled to the max.

The very best tire gauge is your own sense of touch. A bike or scooter inner tube is best inflated just to the point where it feels right to you, when it offers just the right amount of squeeze resistance -- something halfway between spongy and rock solid. There are still some things that technology just can't improve upon, and experience is always the best teacher.

When Air was Free
Back in the proverbial heyday of pneumatic tubery, you drove up to the gas station's (free) compressor pump, turned a hand-crank until it dialed in the requested air pressure, put brass fitting to your tire's Schrader valve and let it fill until the "ding-ding, ding-ding, ding-ding" ceased. If you needed 36 PSI, the compressor stopped ding-dinging at 36 PSI.

Not so these days. Today you first search around town for a station that actually still has a compressor, then you drop in your four quarters and wait for the pump to run for two or three minutes. Instead of the comforting "ding-ding-dinging" to announce the right pressure, today's pumps make you release a little button and inspect the square brass rod that pops out from the hose end. Hopefully you get all of your tires filled in record time or it's another four quarters into the slot.


The Solution
The answer to this of course is to have your own electric compressor at home or a portable pump like the exceedingly handy & useful Portland Design Works Shiny Object C02 Bike Tire Inflator. A good compressor or bicycle pump is a necessary piece of gear for anyone who rides on pneumatic tires. Today's lightweight pumps and inflators can make a real difference between having a great day and a "we were all having fun until I had a flat" kind of day.
