Razor Pocket Mod with new battery does not hold charge

We have tried 3 new batteries in our pocket mod.  After an overnight charge, it runs for about 4-5 minutes as if it had a full charge, then drops to a slow "no charge" speed, and that is the end of riding.  Not even close to the 40 minutes of riding suggested in the manual.  The rider is about 60 lbs.  I have checked to make sure the brake is not dragging.  I have checked all internal connections.  I have checked to make sure the wheel is not binding, rubbing, or constrained. The chain tension is not too tight. I have used different charging units to see if that might be the problem.  Seems the only major parts that cold be the problem is the control unit or the motor itself?  Any thoughts?

    I have a similar problem. We bought the scooter for my dauget for Christmas in December 2007. It has not had any probelms until now. After a full charge, the scooter strains to pull my daughter who only weighs 66 pounds. I do not know if the battery needs to be replaced, so I have not done this yet. Has anyone had this problem, and if so, what fixed the problem? Do you have any suggestions?

SOURCE: i got a razor pocket rocket and my back wheel blew

Replacing the rear tire is a real are much better off purchasing the entire rear wheel assembly which you can do from the Australian distributors Funtastic for only about $10-$15 more than if you just bought the tire.

To replace the tire you need to use a bench vice which a couple of bolts clamped into it to hold the hub in then need to remove the sprocket assembly which is a reverse thread......i had to use a hammer and a large flat head screw driver wrapped in a rag so as not to tear up the teeth.

Once you've loosened the sprocket assembly you have to undo the bolts the hold the two sides of the wheel together and the tire will come right off.

All of this would be totally unecessary if they used a tire that you could remove just like any other mini motorcycle tire.

They don;t and so it is what it is.

As I said, next time just buy the whole assemble and then it's very straight forward.

Hope that helps!

SOURCE: Bought a razor pocket mod scooter second-hand-it

Use a wedge. Place the thin end between the tire and rim. Then push the tire off using the wedge and your other hand, work your way around the circumference of the tire until it is off. Use the same process to put the new tire on. But this time you will push the tire on the rim.
This is a pic of the ideal tool you should use:

Replace the battery with a new one and then make sure the new one gets a complete charge before operating the scooter.

Unit does not run - turn switch on does not light up brightly after charging -

Maybe your big battery inside the pocket mod is dead. That happened to my daughters, but then we took it to a shop

Razor bella problems

Most likely a bad battery. Check out put voltage on all posts. If it's 12 Volts DC or more, then it should be ok, and you'll need to start looking in the wiring such as the speed control switch. If not, your problem is a bad battery cell and you should replace it. NEVER TRY TO SERVICE A BATTERY!!!!!

Razor bella will not go?

one or both of the batteries must be bad, lift the seat up the remove the screws that hold the compartment down and then you should be able to see the two batteries below there, first visually inspect the batteries to see if they look like they are bulging, then test each battery with a multimeter and make sure it is showing at least 12 volts, chances are one or both of the batteries will not show more than 12 volts

The Battery takes a charge, but not enough to make it move. Do I need a new battery or something else?

Make sure the battery is full, if not, add distilled water to full mark. Clean the battery terminals and make sure they are tight. The folks at Auto-Zone will test the battery for free.
