Hi so this ninebot died :/ 

i got a second hand mini pro, it has the same issue. Do I need to replace the steering shaft to fix this ? 

i can post more videos if you want

Hello, dismantle one and see if steering shaft is broken, maybe it's another part

post video, it's better

Tighten the screws under the steering bar label.  I did that a few weeks ago and realised they must have been loose for many months, as a variety of steering related issues I had learned to live with went away.

Mini or Mini Pro,

best steering bar is really Mini N3M240, really,

I took the control arm off my mini pro to see if the mini would fit into the storage tote for transport... Little did I know the two screws had untighten, then I went to clamp back the arm on...I went to take the mini down the stairs, picked it up right over the stairs and arm came off....boom bam bam bong bam....as I held on to the arm, the rest of it fell down the stairs busted the center housing...now encased in shipping tape...

PS... Before I put the arm back on after it fell down the stairs, I actually had to put a double layer of foil to take up the slack between the socket and the control 'nub', it fixed the loose arm and it's nice and stiff right now... And then I put thread lock on the two screws....

The adjustment of the quick-release is very sensitive, just a small changed in the screws makes a big difference in the clamping force.  I adjust mine right out of the box as an initial prep item.

I had a refurb MiniPRO that I thought had some steering problems - it didn't feel right. Then I noticed the lock was a little loose (I think the red casting may have been a little smaller on this unit), adjusted it up and everything is running great now. Take a look at that joint when you move the steering by hand. There should be no movement between the red thingy and the steering shaft...
