Question about 2008 KTM 250 EXC-F

1 Answer

If you spin my back wheel it seems to turn freely then seems to get a bit tight, like something is holding it back then it comes good again. I thought this might be a wheel bearing , so i undid the chain and spun the wheel and it turned freely so that ruled that out. Now im thinking it may be transmission problems which im sure will be very expensive. What do you think ?

What condition is the chain in? The chain will cause that.

Light thumping sound when turning,could this be brakes


Could be universal joints, struts, or wheel bearings too! Get underneath your car, put your front end on Jack-Stands for safety, and grab hold of the tie-rods and check for movement up and down. If they seem tight, do the same with your front struts... it's movement your looking for. Spin the front wheels with the wheel covers off and listen for noise. They should spin freely. Brakes usually make a scraping sound... metal to metal. Any thumping when you brake hard... like a panic stop is normal. The ABS brakes are supposed to do this.

Rear wheel does not spin freely


Sounds like it has drawn tight due to a loose locknut. The bearing cones will need adjusted again.

What is the foot pounds for the front wheel bearings on a 1995 chrysler cirrus


Hello, If you Chrysler has replaceable wheel bearings and seal. This is the way it goes---pack the wheel bearing with new grease-install the bearing in the wheel nub--install new back wheel seal--coat the axle shaft with grease lightly, thing coat-----install wheel hub on to axle shaft...be careful here don't damage the rear hub seal------------insert front race washer---install axle shaft nut--tighten nut down wheel nut until it is firm with water pump pliers----spin the hub/with tire mounted.
(the wheel and hub will turn but not freely)----take the pliers and back off the axle nut 1/4 turn----now spin the wheel and axle hub, it should spin freely---now if doesn't spin freely---back off the axle nut about 1/16 or 1/32 (or just a little bit)-----now, spin the wheel and hub and if turn freely------------Now grab the top of the wheel/tire and move it back and forth.-----if there is some movement ---try tighten the axle nut just a little little bit, unit the one can barely feel some little movement in the wheel/tire and hub.-----------Now, spin the wheel/tire and hub and it should also turn freely.

If it does----install new and correct size of cotter pin and bent the ends around the axle nut.----

coat the inside of the hub cup with grease. Now, use an rubber or plastic hammer to install the cup on the wheel/tire hub. You are finished with one wheel bearing maintenance. Now do the other side.



I really don't know if you Chrysler Cirrus has replaceable wheel bearing. All the auto/trucks have replaceable hubs, that means that the replacement is total hub with axle shaft, sealed bearings, and seals. This is bolt to each wheel steering hub. This work to remove these one unit hubs.

Four bolts hold the axle hub to the steering hub. Hear is the problem!! it has rusted to the steering hub. Also, these hubs cost more than replacing bearings, races, seals to cool turn of $180 to $250+ I wish you luck in your replacement of wheel bearing on your Chrysler. GB..stewbison

Son's can pedal 12" bike


Yes, something isn't turning freely. It's either the front wheel, the back wheel, or the pedals and chain. Lift the bike off the ground and turn the front wheel by hand. If it doesn't turn very freely, it could be the hand-brake is dragging or the hub bearing is too tight. Try the back wheel in both directions. It should move freely in the forward direction. When rolling it backwards it is normal for the pedals to move too if this bike has a coaster brake (that is the kind of brake that is applied by pushing the pedals backwards.) It the back wheel moves forward freely, but backwards is a problem, then try the pedals by hand with the rear wheel off the ground. If this doesn't turn freely, the pedal crank bearing (a.k.a. bottom bracket) is too tight. Once you have identified the problem take it back to where you got it. It should be easy to fix, or they should replace it.

The front wheel assembly is wobbly. Cant seem to find a new wheel anywhere. Thought that fixing it would be cheaper than getting a new trike but maybe not?? Thanks Jodie


you'll want to start by taking the front wheel off of the bike. there are two nuts on the axle on each side of the hub. (besides the ones you loosened to remove the wheel) the two inside nuts keep the bearings tightly in position inside the hub, and the two outer nuts are jamnuts that are tightened to the two inside nuts to keep them from turning once you've got the tension set. so loosen the jamnuts from the tension nuts, set the tension tight to where the wheel doesnt wobble but not so tight that the wheel doesnt spin freely. then tighten the jam nuts while holding the tension nuts in place with a wrench so that the tension nuts dont move when you're tightening the jam nuts. take your time and you'll be fine. I hope this helps and Good luck!

The shaft piece on my hobbylock 786 serger is loose


The top hex screw I think holds the bushing that allows it to slide freely. Keep that loose. If you open the panel where the lightbulb lives and spin the wheel, you will see a small flathead screw come into sight near the top of the rotation, through a small round window in the case. Tightening this screw a bit should keep the needleshaft moving with the wheel. Unfortunately I am still trying to find out how to position it so that it's properly timed.

Hand wheel spins without moving the needle


I used to have an old Bernina that had an inner and outer hand wheel. Loosening the inner wheel disconnected the needle bar from the motor so you could wind the bobbin without running the needle up and down. It sounds to me like your machine has the same feature, but resistance on the needle makes the inner wheel loosen up. I don't know whether wrenching on it as tight as you can would be enough, or whether this is a symptom indicating that there is something loose internally in the connection between the inner and outer wheels. Good luck!
