    Hoping someone can help me. My scooter is really old, the sticker says 10/19/2000 on it. I called razor and they couldn't provide me any info on older models. Google was useless.

    So, anyone here might know anything I would be grateful.

    Ok, my scooter, 20 years old. Has shock absorbers in the front. When I get on the scooter, it creaks. I haven't ridden this scooter in like.... 18 years! So, I really can't remember if this noise is normal, the scooter creaks when I get on it and use it. My weight is 115lbs, the weight limit on the scooter is around 200 lbs.

    Is this creaking sound normal when using a scooter with shock absorbers? The creaking is 100% coming from the shock absorbers and not the wheels or bearings.

    I'm not a scooter guy but I think I remember the kind you mean from back in the day. Is it the kind with little coil shocks like this?:

    If yes then I imagine the squeaking is because any grease/oil has dried out after 20 years, likely all it needs is some lubrication on the pivot points, either bike chain oil or spray grease would do the job.
