Re: how do i replace the hand grip on guardian red dot...
I had the same problem, but i found an answer. have a friend with 2 good feet help you with this. Turn the crutch upside down and place armrest on the ground. Stand on the outside edges of the armrest and pull crutch upward. The armrest is not glued to the rest of the unit. It's just a snug fit. Once the armrest is removed, the hand piece can be removed. Now comes the struggle to remove the damaged rubber hand grip, and put the new one on, took me about 5 minutes to do this step. Then reverse what you've done, put the hand grip back on the crutch, put the armrest back on, turn the crutch upside down, and push the armrest back into place.

remove seat and gas tank. remove air box and related parts to be able to access the throttle body of the carburetors. open the hand grip casing on the handle bar and loosened the adjustment on the cables, then separate the hand grip from the plastic casing. detach the cables from the throttle hand grip, followed buy doing the same to the carburetor. remove the old cables by tracing their paths and make sure the new ones follow the same route, take notes if need be. follow removal instructions backwards and adjust slack in the cables once all is back in place, slack should be no more then 4 millimeters on throttle handle( free play)
Whether yours are the classic wooden crutches or the light weight aluminum model. The hand holder has a long screw that goes thru each side of the crutch and thru the hand piece. Loosening that screw, remove it and placing the handle where you want it (needs to match up with other holes), should do the trick. Reinstall the screw and that's it.
brasssyslv, There are three bolts holding the bar in place. Two in front and one in the back. To get at the back bolt, remove the plastic triangle shaped cover by pulling it straight up. When you remove these bolts, grab the bar and turn it 90 degrees either way and pull it straight out. Now the only thing holding the fuse box in is either a 10mm bolt or a plastic push pin. Remove it and place the box aside while you change the battery. Good luck with this.
Start by removing the bar nut/nuts, and remove the side cover, if the chainbrake is in the cover make sure this is off by pulling the hand guard fully back to the top handle, before removing the side cover, wind the chain adjuster screw fulley in toward the rear of the saw ( it may be in the crankcse, or in the side cover ) now assemble the guide bar onto the bar bolt/bolts, loop the cutter chain over the sprocket,and into around the tip of the guide bar, and into the bar rails, make sure the sharp end of the cutters on the top of the guide bar are facing away from the saw ( the chain rotates clockwise as you look at it ) now align the adjuster hole in the bar with the adjuster pawl on the machine, now re fit the side cover, if the adjuster pawl is in the cover make sure this lines up with the adjuster hole in the bar, assemble the bar nut/nuts finger tight, adjust the chain so as it touches all the way around the guide bar ( not sagging on the bottom of the bar ) with a gloved hand pull the chain around the bar to make sure it is free and sitting in the sprocket correctly, re adjust the chain if required, now lift the nose of the bar and fully tighten the bar nut/nuts
Locate the bolts on the bar, down close to the engine. Loosen them. locate the chain tensioning adjustment, again, close to the engine, but on the other side. Loosen it also. Place your chain on the bar and on the sprocket. Tighten the bolts enough to take the slack out of the bar, but not so much that you cannot use the adjustment tensioning screw. Tighten up on the tension adjustment until the tension on the chain is right, and then tighten the bolts.

Here's an idea----If the hinge piece is plastic, cut it away to expose a bit of the bolt and use vise grips and pull. Maybe put a thin metal plate next to the bolt so you can pry up on the vise grip. Or maybe you can get a grip on the hinge itself with the vise grips. The insert is going to be plastic, so if you can get a grip this should work. Or you might try drilling a small hole in the hinge piece very close to the bolt so you can get some super glue down in there to lock the insert is place. Hmmmm, this might be a bad idea unless you have a hypodermic needle and bolt is not plastic.
The Tracker is designed to be folded and unfolded easily, by one person.
To unfold: If your Tracker has an adjustable handle, ensure that it is in one of the middle positions. On the central twist grip, push in the red button and turn the grip in the direction of the "FOLD" arrow. The pushchair should now begin to open. Placing your hand on the side moulding, pull on the handle until the primary locks on both the left and right hand sides engage with a click. The secondary lock should automatically engage.
To fold: First of all, make sure that the front wheels have been locked into fixed, non-steering mode. Also, ensure that the adjustable handle is in one of the middle positions. Press the red button on the twist grip and simultaneously turn it in the direction of the "FOLD" arrow. At this point, the chair should start to close. Next, look for the secondary locking device. This plastic tab should be situated just below the handle grip on the left-hand side. Pull it upwards, whilst tilting the chassis forwards and continuing the folding action until it is fully closed. Align the front wheel with your foot, if necessary, and fold down the adjustable handle to store the chassis.
they can stick in a number of places.
You may need to dissassemble the hand throttle assembly
Make sure the plastic twist grip turns freely on the handle bar.
Check the new grip doesnt push against the throttle switch assembly.
Check the cables move freely
Check the cables dont have any frayed ends
check the cables arnt missing any of the plastic outer cover
check the cables a routed correctly and dont get jammed or pulled turning lock to lock
The left side grip just slips onto the handlebars. There may be some glue to help hold it on. I usually take a very small bladed screwdriver and slide it between the handlebar and the grip and spray some WD40 or something in there. You may have to loosen the bolts that hold the switch housing on and move it inward to the center of the handlebars just a bit to get the screwdriver under the grip.
On the right hand side, things are a bit different. The handlebar grip is on a plastic tube that operates the throttle cables. To get it off, you must loosen both of the cables at the adjusters. Then, take the bolts out that hold the top and bottom halves of the switch housing together. Seperate the switch housing so that you can get to the cables in the housing. Carefully, remove the cables and the ferrells from the twist grip and remove it.
Lubricate the new throttle sleeve with white lithium grease and slide in onto the handlebars. Reinstall the throttle and idle cables with their ferrells in the appropiate slots. Reassemble the switch housing and readjust the throttle and idle cables. Check for proper operation prior to starting the engine.
do you see the red little button/switch thing on the handle bar? OK, put your right hand on the handle with your thumb resting on the little red button. Now with your thumb, slide the little red button thing in towards your hand (slide the red thing to the right). Still holding the button in, twist the grip of the handle bar (where your hand should already be sitting) away from you. if you can imagine giving a motorcycle gas, you would twist the handle back, right. Twist the opposite way for this. So, on the stroller just press the button in, twist the handlebar grip FOREWARD, give it a little push (think up & over) and the whole thing should just collapse down neatly. it should colllapse sown until you hear a click. this is the lock latching together to hold it closed. next time you need to open it the lock is located on one of the sides. all you have to do is release the latch which is also a bright red. should be easy to locate. hope this helped you out. if you need further assistance i'm mushroombunny@yahoo,com good luck.
