When you tighten the nut on the handlebar be sure the nut does not turn the bolt you may have to hold the bolt with a vice grip

If you are sure it is as tight as you can get it and the handle bar moves you may have to losten it and put a shim between the handlebar and the clamp throat

Also, the handlebar does go down into the forks this controls the side to side movement of the handle bars when you tighten this bolt it keeps the unit tight into the forks

How do i change the chain on my model 108526-01

The proper sequence to installing the chain should be to first ensure the brake is in the 'unlocked' position then loosen the chain adjustment screw, slip the chain over the back of the sprocket, align the chain with the bar, slip the bar onto the bar mounting studs ensuring the adjustment pin slips into the appropriate hole in the bar. Then slip the outer chain cover over the bar studs, elevate the front end of the bar and tighten the bar mounting nuts to 'snug'. Adjust the chain tension to the desired setting ensuring the front of the guide bar remains elevated, then tighten the nuts to secure the bar.

Remember to unlock the brake BEFORE removing the bar and chain because it is so much easier to unlock it mounted on the saw if yours is the design that comes off with the cover.

Keeping the front of the bar elevated during assembly and adjustment of the chain will keep the chain tension correct for a much longer period.

Raising handle bars

Right in the center of the handle bars you will find a nut ( usually allen key) that is in line with the tube going down/attached to the fork of the bicycle. Loosen this nut and unscrew it for about 5mm - don't remove it completely. Take a mallet and hit the nut firmly on its head to force it back the 5 mm unscrewed. It should release the tapered lock inside the tube and the handles can be adjusted. If it is still stuck, unscrew the nut more and repeat the process. After adjustment tighten the nut firmly, while holding the handles in position. It will lock again as it is getting tightened. Make sure it is secure by "clamping" the front wheel between your legs while trying to move the handles in any direction. Handle movement should not be possible when applying moderate to strong force. However, excessive force will result eventually in movement and or damage to the front wheel and is therefor not required.

Huffy stalker 18 speed, I can't tighten the stem.

If you are talking about the handle-bar stem, the bolt you need to tighten is right in the middle of the post. It may have a snap-on plastic cover over it. This will be the head of a long bolt that reaches down inside of the stem where the nut is shaped as a wedge that serves to tighten inside the tube of the front fork. If you are talking about the the seat-post, then your seat-post might be of too small diameter.This page shows a good picture of the handle-bar stem bolt and wedge nut.

I feel like I'm missing something. I can not attach the handlebars to the bike. I have one long screw, a bolt and some small black cylinder cut on an angle. The instructions are not helpful because...

the cylinder cut on an angle is what the long bolt should bolt to, put the cylinder below the handle bars, and drop the long nut down through the handle bars and into the cylinder, ( the hole in it should be threaded,) only start the bolt so it hangs onto the cylinder, then feed that into the top of the neck hole, where the handle bars slide into,, once the desired height is ok,, tighten that bolt, the cylinder will come up at an angle and tighten the neck and handle bars !! Good Luck

On three occasions my handle bars have freed up relative to the stema nd wheel direction. In other words, my handle bars are not controlling the direction of the wheel - it's almos as if a linkage or...

Stop guessing. You've used up three of your lives....

Search engine "how to adjust threadless stem" for videos.

Is that the stock stem or did someone replace it? It almost sounds like the inside diameter of the stem doesn't match the steerer tube, or something's cracked.

One person had this to say about it... "It was a two-bolt stem, and the problem was that I wasn't tightening the bolts to the same torque setting. If you don't do that, the stem doesn't clamp the bar evenly all the way around, and it will start to slip, and the uneven forces will cause the bolts to loosen.

How do I reattach chain after it slipped off

Normal 0 This will be the basic instruction for most common saws. Check that the chain brake is in disengaged position by moving the front hand guard towards the front handle if the saw is equipped with a chain brake on the handle. Loosen the bar nuts on the clutch cover. Loosen tension screw or other adjuster (thumbscrew) to allow the bar to be moved toward the engine. Some saws have this tension adjustment built into the bar. This will provide enough slack in the chain to able to reinstall it. It may be necessary to remove the side cover to gain access to the clutch/gear assembly on the side of the engine if the chain also jumped the gear here. Remove the cover, inspect for any debris or other obstructions in this area. If none, replace the chain back over the drive gear and in the bar groove all the way around the bar. It may be necessary to turn the bar adjuster screw more to provide enough slack in the chain to do this. Once the chain is in place reinstall the cover and bar lock nuts. Snug up the nuts but do not tighten these. Turn the bar/chain adjuster screw to tighten the chain on the bar (take up slack). I usually tighten to a point where there is no slack between the chain and the bottom of the bar and I can still turn the chain easily around the bar by hand. With experience you will get the feel for this chain tension. Once the chain is properly tensioned, tighten the bar lock bolts/ nuts on the side cover. I hope this helps you out.

Bicycles Brakes Tightening

Are the brakes center pull or side pull?
Center pull would have a nut directly in the center of the brake. Now go to the brake lever on your handle bars and tighten the turn screw where the cable handle is. Keep turning the nut till your brakes grip.
If you have side pull brakes. Then where the cable meets the breaks. Their is a nut that the cable slides through. Loosen the nut and firmly pull the cable till its tight and retighten the nut.

Tension on bernina 140

Take the top off again. Behind the tension disks (on top) you will see a torx head screw that goes through a knurled nut that has a flat side on it. Loosen that screw and turn that flat sided nut a bit. Then tighten the screw. This works like an eccentric that opens the discs either narrower or wider (depending on your needs) when you lift the presser foot bar. You may have to try this several times until you can see its good.
