The problem is witht he flywheel on the rear wheel assembly. I had mine fixed by a professional last night (at a bike store). Razor uses a very cheap spring that is designed to fail and then to top that off did not use enough bearings as well (12 bearings short out of the factory). My son had also sprayed WD-40 all around the back axle (trying to make it faster). This is bad because, the bearings are packed in grease and WD-40 is a de-greaser. Never get WD-40 anywhere near your back axle!!! Anyway, the flywheel was way easier to remove than I thought. It is threaded onto the rim's axle shaft and just screws off. Once you get the flywheel, off you have to take it apart, fabricate a new spring (my son's new spring came from an old 10 speed's tensioning spring), reset the 3 pawls, repack the bearings, put the flywheel back together, and screw it back onto the wheel. I will post a YouTube video on this later. Hopefully this is enough info to get you started.

Why do Both my back wheels turn in opposite directions


Hi Anthony. This is a reaction called "Torque" Commonly, most rear wheeled vehicles have what is called "Limited-Slip Differential" What happens is, as the vehicle makes a turn, the inside rear wheel rotates slightly slower than the rear wheel on the outside of the turn. This ensures even power distribution to the rear wheels from the transmission. If you have a "Positive Traction" (Posi) rear wheel drive, then when you accelerate, both wheels turn at the exact same rotational time. The consequence of this is, when you turn, you will hear a rear tire squeal on the pavement. There is also the "Semi-Posi" that acts like an Limited-Slip, until you apply power. Then the rear wheels turn at the same rotation, but only under power. To experience what it would be like if all wheels turned the same direction at the same time, find someone with a 4 wheel drive (4x4) with manual hubs, and on pavement put it in 4 low and try to turn. 2 of the tires will squeal on the pavement, and you will notice it will slow you down very quickly during a turn. I hope this gives you the info you wanted. ^^

Turn whhel real sharp on 2005 ford explorer left rear wheel wants to lockundefined


If you have four wheel drive, turning the wheels sharply at a slow speed when in 4X4 mode can result in a wheel binding. The other possibilities are low lubricant in the rear differential, wrong lubricant in the rear differential if it has been replaced, or a bad differential.

Why every time when I turn the steering wheel the rear differential starts to lock and it shakes?


Do you have the vehicle in 4 wheel drive? 4 wheel drive is only meant for slippery conditions. It will act exactly as you describe if on dry surfaces.

I have a jazzy 1107 power wheel chair the back wheels are leaned outward i dont think the back wheels should be leaned outward i think this is what is causing me not be able to be able to turn properly....


Have some one check out that the section has not become loose or broken. IF the wheel rubbers are damaged then you will have trouble regardless of what you do. I consider it paramount that the chair is in top condition for your needs. Have the manufacturer's service agent fix it for you.

Rear scraping sound, Also when placed on lift and in gear (all wheel drive) the rear left wheel does not spin


Take it in for proper diagnosis - that's not supposed to happen in an 'ALL WHEEL DRIVE' - all WHEELS ARE SUPPOSED TO TURN.

The rear went out in my SUV and I need to know the gear ratio. I have another rear but need to know if it will work.


Hold one wheel. mark the other wheel. Turn the unlocked wheel two complete revolutions. Count the number of turns the yoke make in two revolutions of the unlocked wheel. 3 1/2 turns= 3.42 3 3/4 turns 3.73 and so on
