Scooter Axles Come in Different Variations
Here you can find a replacement scooter axle if your original wheel bolts are broken or the bolts are getting rounded. The axle’s job is to connect the wheels to the stunt scooter in a durable way that maintains speed. Axles for the front are known as the fork axles, and the ones for the back are called scooter rear axles.
Axles are most commonly made from are steel and aluminum. Steel is stronger and aluminum is lighter, so the best stunt scooter axle depends on the individual rider’s preferences and riding style.
What Size Are Scooter Axles?
People often ask, what scooter axle bolt size do I need? The standard scooter bolt diameter is 8 mm, but they also come in 6 mm, 10 mm and everything in-between. It is a good idea to measure your old scooter axle bolt before purchasing a new one, to make sure you buy the right length.
When buying an axle for the rear wheel it’s important that the axle diameter and length fits the deck, and when buying an axle for the front wheel make sure that it fits the fork. To see how the axles fit with the forks and deck in more detail, check out our Buying Axles for Scooters.
Pegs Can Be Mounted on the Axles
Most pegs can be customized to fit almost any deck with the use of spacers and the correct axle. When you buy scooter pegs, they sometimes come with an axle that will allow you to install them correctly. The axle size depends on how many pegs you want to install on each axle and what kind of deck and fork you use.
