What is the shape of the handle bars on the Schwinn High Timber Girl's bike?

These are certainly not racing style bars; but the modern, hybrid riser handlebar.

They will not sweep back toward the rider as much as a beach cruiser handlebar; but could be adjusted rearward to come closer to the rider. They definitely allow for a more upright riding position than many other handlebars though.10_19_2012_7_26_19_pm.jpg

My throttle won't snap back. I recently packed the end of the handle bars with silicon to help with vibration. Now my throttle sticks and won't snap back right away. How can I fix this?

I'd be willing to bet that you have gotten silicone on the outside of the bars between the handlebar and the throttle sleeve. But, let's try this first. Loosen the two screws that hold the right handlebar switch halves together. Once you get them loose, slide the throttle assembly and the switch housing towards the end of the handlebars about an 1/8" or so. Not much, just a bit to make sure the end of the handlebar is not rubbing inside the throttle grip at the very end. Tighten the screws and try the throttle now. If it works, tighten the two screws securely and loosen the bolts for the front brake master cylinder and slide it down against the handlebar switch housing so you brake light will work correctly.

If this doesn't work, try loosen the cables just a bit. If they're adjusted too tight, the throttle will stick.

If that doesn't work, you'll have to take the throttle sleeve back off the handlebars. Clean out the inside of the sleeve and the handlebars good. Then apply a thin even coat of white lithium grease to the inside of the throttle sleeve and on the outside of the handlebar. Slide the sleeve uo on the handlebar and work it around to make sure it moves absolutely freely. Then reconnect the cables and reassemble the switch housing. Adjust the cables and make sure the throttle works as it should.

Good Luck

Really stiff turning. I am looking at a 2008 CBR 600 on craigslist and when I took it for a ride, the handlebars were extremely stiff. It's hard to describe, but when doing a tight turn the handlebars...

take a riding course... the instructor will tell you to push the handle bar to the opposite side you are turning when running about 30mph and you really dont turn the handle bar when turning at a high speed. in low speed, handle bars should not be very stiff. maybe check tire pressure.

Got a sticky throttle on a honda CBR 250 rr how can i fix it

start at the handlebar end. loosen the 2 screws and slide off the throttle from the handle bar, wipe down the handle bar, and put a thin film of grease on it, then slide it back on, being sure not to slide it on all the way, about 1mm back, to prevent the handlegrip rubbing on the end of the bar. Next you need to lubricate the cable, this is best done from the top handlebar end, you need to take apart the cable housing, so you can spray some thin lubricant down the cable, such as WD-40, or you can even buy special cable lube. This will fix your problem im sure.

I fell on my bike and the handlebars and stuck to the right side.

Depending on the bike, you will most likely have a nut at the top of handlebar stem or two socket screws at the side of the stem that grip the front fork. In either case you need to loosen them slightly, reposition the handle bars and then tighten up. Quite often however if you stand in front of the bike with your legs on either side of the front wheel and turn the handle bars their is enough slip to move them back. Be carefull you dont strain anything if you dont back the threads off.

The handle bars slip and tightening the nut doesn't work.

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
