How do I change back tire on a Toa Toa 50 cc scooter?

A single bolt with a cotter pin holds the rear wheel on the axle, covered with a plastic dust cap. Remove the cap, Remove the pin, then use a pry bar to hold the wheel in place while you undo the axle nut. Once removed, tap the end of the axle with a rubber mallet or use a piece of wood and a hammer until the wheel comes loose. Remove, use motorcycle tire tools to remove tire, replace tire, and remount wheel. Use a new cotter pin.

Pursuit XL scooter, rubbing sound during right turns...

My first guess is that you have either loose lug nuts(5)on one or more of the wheels, or you have loose screws(6)that hold the wheel rims together as these have split rims. This is more common on scooters with flat-free tires as the tire and the foam insert will chafe against each other and produce a rhythmic sound as the wheel rotates. Try tightening all of the lug nuts first and see if that helps. If it persists, try removing the tire by removing the 5 lug nuts and pulling it off the axle. You'll see six bolts that hold the rim halves together. Re-tighten all of these and install the wheel to see if that cleared the noise. Note: The real wheels have a key-slot in the axle and a key which slides into this slot to hold the tire to the axle. Be careful not to lose the key when you slide the wheel off, and be sure to get the key back in the slot when you install it back on the hub. Here is the page for your scooter. Click on the owners manual and scroll down to page 37 for info on tire removal.

Missing rear axle. is there a way to replace? the company won't.

I had the same problem. I bought this scooter for my daughter at a flea market and the rear axle was gone, someone had tried to fix it with a bolt, but it was very unstable. Here is what I did and it has seemed to work well. This will cost you less that 10.00 at your nearest home improvement store.
You will need
1x - 5/16 x 8 hex bolt 1x - 5/16 nut 4x - 5/16 x 1 1/4 flat washers 2x - 1 1/4 hard rubber stoppers 1x - 3/8 drill bit & drill 1x - gorilla glue or lock tight
Ok... before we start let me tell you what all this is for and how it works. The way I assembled this was, hex bolt, 1 washer, wheel for scooter, 1 washer, 1 rubber stopper (Insert this into the metal tube on the back of the scooter, so that on the other side you will just have a bolt sticking thru) now, 1x rubber stopper, 1x washer, other scooter wheel, 1x washer, hex nut.
The rubber stoppers are the hardest part and the reason for them is to keep the bolt going thru the middle of the axle tube. This will help to eliminate the scooter from wobbling.
Now, if you have read this far here is how we did it in order.
1. Take both rubber stoppers and trim them with a kitchen knife so that they will fit into the metal tube on the back of the scooter securely. (do not push them all the way in yet)
2. Drill a hole thru the middle of both trimmed rubber stoppers with the drill and bit
3. Take your hex bolt and slide a washer on
4. Slide your 1st wheel on
5. Slide on a 2nd washer
6. push on the trimmed rubber stopper to where it meets the washer. (The wheel should be able to still spin pretty freely, If you think it is to tight just pull the rubber stopper up a bit)
7. Take this assembly and push it into one side of the metal tube on the back of the scooter (you want the rubber stopper to be and flush with the edge of the metal tube and you can)
8. Your hex bolt will be stick out of the other end of the tube, slide on the last rubber stopper try and work it into the tube as best you can.
9. slide on 3rd washer
10. Slide on last wheel
*At this point I put the scooter on its side and pushed down on the wheel to force the stopper into the tube
11. slide on 4th washer
12. screw on nut
*Now I found that if you put the nut on to tight the wheels would not turn, but if you left it loose it would fall off.
13. To fix the above issue we put some gorilla glue on the bolt threads and screwed the nut on, we would spin the back wheels until we were happy with the amount of tension on the wheel. We then put some more glue on the top of the nut to help hold it in place.
14. Let the glue dry
Thats how I fixed my daughters scooter. I am in NO WAY a professional or expert at this stuff. Just a dad trying to make his baby happy. Hope this works for you!

Hi ,i get a noise like a klunk when the scooter is moving. Do you have any ideas what that could be?

The first thing to check are the tires; make sure they are properly inflated, or if they are solid rubber, that there are no chunks missing from them and have not come separated from the rim.

The next thing is to check the pinch bolt on the back axle. It is usually a little loose to allow the wheels to give when going over uneven surfaces, but if it is too loose, it may cuase a clunking sound as the metal bar shifts during movement. Tighten the bolt all the way then back off 1/2 turn.

The last thing is to check all of your connections; make sure the seat is not wobbly and the batteries are seated properly so that nothing shifts while you are in motion.

If all else fails, contact the manufacturer to see if they can schedule a service call for you.
Good luck!
