HOW TO FIX BUGABOO HANDLE EXTENSION LEVER

I must admit I'm not impressed with the new lever locks, the old wing nuts are far stronger but are more fiddly to adjust. If your lever type lock starts slipping here's how to fix it. The handle extension lever is held in by the pin it pivots on, cut the tip of a smaller size nail and use it to tap out the pin.
There should be a rubber block and a matching steel shim under the lever. The lever pushes on the shim and the shim on to the rubber block jamming it against the handle. The steel shim is the usual problem. it slips out. Open the other side and use that shim to get a copy cut. A piece cut out of a tin can or scrap piece of metal could work or goggle "shim" to find a local supplier. If you are lucky and all the parts are there and the rubber block is just a bit worn you can add an extra shim. I used a piece of edge banding just because it was in my workshop it's thin, easy to cut and water proof.

Skilsaw 7 1/4 saw depth locking lever will not tighten even when all the wsy dn. Can it be adjusted?


Take a look at the hinged part of the locking lever, usually there is a nut and bolt, looses the nut, open the lock all the way, tighten the nut and see if this helps. You may not like the position that it locks in, so then loosen it again and open half way, then tighten and check to see where it locks again. The lever may have a cam or tapered part that forces pressure on things to lock it. Examine it and find out how the lock works and then adjust it appropriately.

The locking pad broke on my Ryobi RTS 30 table saw


Turn the saw on its side so you can access the inside of the enclosure easily.

Then remove the locknut from the mainshaft to the locking lever. This will allow you to raise the lock lever enough to get a hexkey into the screw that holds the lock lever onto the shaft, so you can remove the lever.

You have to remove the mainshaft completely, which unscrews from a secondary nut below the spring. Should be able to just apply pressure to this nut with a screwdriver while you remove the shaft.

Through the new washer, reinstall the shaft and reverse the disassembly process.

Kind of trial and error to determine how far to screw the mainshaft back in. Too far and the lock lever binds. Not far enough, and you won't get enough locking pressure.

In all, not a terrible job to tackle. Just a little frustrating- first that the washer broke at all, and second, that such a vulnerable part is so complicated to fix.

I need a brake level for a bugaboo camelon tried to repair internal parts and spring and it is all jammed up and not salvagable. I simply need a resource for a new lever


If the lever is not broken and the teeth still have their points and engage well with the matching teeth on the fixed lever bracket it should be repairable. It is fiddly to get all the parts lined up and assembled most likely you've got the brake cable wedged. If you do need a brake lever Bugaboo won't help they only sell the whole chassis. If you have the older wing-nut white lever model you will get back some of the $400 new chassis cost in better resale value. Other wise check out eBay for old chassis with other problems but good brake parts. Here's my link about Bugaboo brakes www.fixya.com/support/r7805449-fix_bugaboo_brake

87 Sportster how do i adjust the clutch from the primary.


To adjust your clutch on your Sporty, loosen the lock nut where the cable adjuster goes into the primary case. Turn the cable adjuster into the primary cover and get as much slack as you can in the cable. Then remove the round plug on the outside of the primary. Take the spring and the lock nut out of the adjuster hole. There is a slotted screw in the hole. Turn the screw counterclockwise until it stops. Then turn it back 1/4 turn. Reinstall the lock nut and the spring. Replace the round cover. Then turn the cable adjuster out as far as you can get it. Then turn it back in until you get a 1/16 inch freeplay at the clutch lever.

Good Luck
Steve

i have a bugaboo wlth the white colour brake and have just found out that the white colour ones are out of date. my question is does anybody know if i can get it changed over to the red one and how much should i pay?


Bugaboo don't sell parts as such but they sell the chassis. It will coat you around a third of the price of a new Bugaboo. The new Red brake lever chassis has the lever extension handle locks instead of the wing-nuts and rocker style buttons for the handle release. Your old frame will be quite sort after on eBay. I like the rocker handle release and the extension levers are quick to use and look better but I must warn you the old wing-nut system held the handle better and if you bump down a lot of stairs the new lever system is more prone to slipping, macnutz_16.jpg
