How To Put Together a Fuzion X-Series Scooter
The first step to assembling your Fuzion X-Series scooter is to take all parts and tools out of the box. Do not leave anything in the box. Make sure to read the owner’s manual. If you are underage, it is best to go over the manual with a parent or guardian. Prepare to put together your pro scooter by taking all plastic and packaging off of the scooter parts and tools, and spreading them out on the floor.
1. Check the shim inside the headset for wiggle room. If it needs to be adjusted, tighten the bolt until there is no headset wobble and the fork rotates freely. Place the down-tube and handlebars into the clamp above the headset and tighten the bolts. All of the Fuzion Pro Scooter models come with the correct Allen wrench for the three bolts on the clamp, so no need to break out the tool box.
2. Slide the t-shaped handlebars over the fork. Rotate the clamp until the opening is back-center. You want the three bolts to be on the backside of the tube, closest to the rider.
3. Once you aligned the bar, use the Allen wrenches to evenly tighten the three bolts on the clamp. Use a medium amount of pressure to tighten these bolts. You do not want to under-tighten them and risk the handlebars slipping around while you are riding. You also do not want to over-tighten them and risk stripping the bolt.
