Slamm Scooters Outbreak ll Assembly Issue
At the end of June, Slamm scooters sent out a product warning concerning the Slamm scooters Outbreak ll model. Below is the original information from Slamm Scooters and a guide to fix it yourself.
“Hey Guys we wanted to give you a heads up about an issue with the new batch of Slamm Outbreak II scooters! It seems that our factory were spending too much time making sure the new upgrades on Outbreak II looked good that they somehow managed to put the lower headset bearing in upside down!!!

1) Your lower bearing is upside down causing the lower headset seal to protrude about 2-3 mm
2) To fix this, loosen off the top locking nut and completely remove from the forks.
3) Do the same with top cup nut.. BE CAREFUL, not to damage or lose the bearings inside!!!
4) Now slide the forks out and completely remove them from the head tube.
5) The bearing race is meant to be at the top…
6) Slide the bearing unit off of the forks, flip it over and slide it back down the fork tube.
7) Slide the forks back into the head tube, careful not to damage the bearings!
8) Screw the top cup nut and locking nut back on.
9) Adjust until the headset is tight, but ensuring it is still able to spin. Note the bottom seal is almost flush.
