Kickstand fell off on a road king and not sure how it goes back


To replace the 2011 Touring jiffy stand leg FIRST support the motorcycle with a suitable lifting device so it securely upright and level and the jiffy stand is able to move through its full range of travel, move the jiffy stand to the full forward or down position, remove the hex bolt,the lockwasher, the flat washer and the leg stop, swing the jiffy stand forward beyond the normal down position and remove the end of the spring from the jiffy stand, remove the leg from the bracket, remove the other end of the spring from the frame weldment, inspect all of the parts for wear/damage and replace if and as necessary. TO install the leg FIRST apply SILVER GRADE ANTI-SEIZE compound to the area of the leg that rotates within the bracket, verify that the end of the spring enters the hole from the front of the leg weldment because if the end of the spring enters the hole from the rear of the weldment the spring coil will rub on the leg when in use, install the end of the spring into the hole in the frame weldment, insert the leg up through the bracket, swing the jiffy stand forward beyond the normal down position and install other end of the spring into the hole in the leg weldment. Be careful to install the leg correctly because if it is installed incorrectly excessive wear can occur which will allow the vehicle to fall when rested on the jiffy stand. THEN holding the leg at the normal forward (down) position, install the stop over the threaded end with the stamped side down, verify that the longer side of the stop faces the rear of the motorcycle, install the flat washer, the lockwasher and the hex screw and tighten it to 15-20 ft-lbs (20.3-27.1 Nm), extend and retract the jiffy stand several times to verify proper operation, freely swinging to both the fully extended and the fully retracted positions, move the jiffy stand to the full forward (down) position and remove the lifting device and let the motorcycle rest on the jiffy stand, verify that the rubber stop is installed in the hole of the jiffy stand weldment to prevent damage to the painted finish.

To remove the 2011 touring jiffy stand bracket FIRST lift and support the motorcycle in a fully upright position off of the jiffy stand, remove the left rider footboard and support brackets, remove the jiffy stand leg, remove the two fasteners and the lockwashers to release the jiffy stand bracket from the frame weldment.

To Install the 2011 touring jiffy stand bracket FIRST install the two fasteners and lockwashers to secure the front of the bracket to the frame weldment, temporarily install the footboard rear fastener to align the rear of the jiffy stand bracket but do not tighten it, tighten the front fasteners to 36-42 ft-lbs (48.8-57.0 Nm), install the footrest and install the jiffy stand leg.

Leveling kenmore elite front loader


  • Place the level on the top of the washing machineicon1.png to see if it is level. Make sure you test it side to side and front to back.

    Pull the washing machine away from any walls if you have to make an adjustment to the legs.


  • Lift the washericon1.png and place the wood block underneath the washer. Place the block near the leg that needs to be adjusted, but don't let it obstruct the leg.

  • Loosen the nut that secures the legicon1.png with the wrench.

  • Raise the height of the leg by twisting it to the left, or lower the height by twisting it to the right.

  • Remove the block of wood from under the washer and recheck the machine with the level.

  • Raise or lower the leg if additional adjustments are needed.

  • Tighten the nut on the leg with the wrench when the machine is level.

  • Repeat the process for each leg that needs to be adjusted.

  • Move the washer back into position and check with the level again to make sure the washer remains stable to finish leveling the machine.

    Fisher price my little lamb baby swing will not swing


    If it makes a sound but doesn't swing then the metal rod inside the motor casing was probably bent. If it makes no sound then it could be several different problems.
    If it does make noise (my daughter did the same thing) then you can fix it, though it's not the easiest fix. Unplug it/remove batteries, and you'll need to remove the legs. Start removing screws to get to the motor casing, the first ones you'll need are in the battery compartment. Be careful as you're doing this, once you get the plastic casing off things can move around. Have someone as a second set of eyes if you need it.
    Once you can see the guts look for a thin metal stick, no thicker than a telephone cord. Yup, that's what moves the swing. The metal is easily stressed. You can carefully power it up if you want to see how it works or make sure that little thing is moving. There's a small gear underneath all that, but you don't need to get to it.
    Instead, you'll need to beef up that little stick. I used a leftover rubber gasket from a ceiling fan first, then I was so amazed it worked I took it back apart and used a longer piece of rubber tubing with a harder plastic tube over it (it's a very tight fit). It will still need to rock back and forth in it's little hole so don't go too crazy.
    The one drawback is that I think it has a louder operation now, but the one thing that both my kids adored with the swing was the rhythmic tick-tock. If baby is happy, mama is happy.
    Anyway, FP will sell you a whole new motor, or if you an find the exact part number you might be able to get a new pendulum. But I like fixing stuff, and I like free better, so if this is what yours needs I hope it helps. If this is but you don't follow what I've written I'm happy to try and take pictures of mine.

    We closed up the swing for storage now we need to use it and the seat is wobbly any ideas where to tighten screws?


    The main ones to tighten are the ones on the legs that you can see. What makes it really wobbly are the legs not being balanced or spaced apart wide enough. They should be extended out enough for them to be resting on the side of the top where they enter the motor housing, and the feet should be relatively flat on the floor. Push them out (don't force them of course) then use your foot to nudge them out until they're stable enough for your needs. I found it also helps to set this up on a carpet instead of bare wood floor. The swinging motion can sometimes rock the legs up/out a little and make it look unstable.

    Raise handlebars. thank you


    loosen the bolt in the center of the handlebar mount, don't remove it, Just very loose, once you've done that you may have to give it a smack to get the bolt to go back down which will release the sleve inside the goose neck , place the front wheel between your legs and work the bars back and forth to loosen them, and raise up on them as your doing this,, once you get the desired height, tighten that bolt back down again

    My Starlight papasan craddle swing clicks loudly and the gears seemingly miss causing it to not swing properly whenever I put my baby in it (he only weighs 8 pounds). When there is no weight in it, it...


    Make sure the legs are pulled out all of the way by pulling the legs outward. Make sure the buttons snap into the notches in the motorized frame. Also check to be sure the legs are locked into position by pushing the legs inward. The legs should not move. Also if you can adjust the swing from side to side make sure it is locked in place. That should fix it.

    How do you take off the front tire on the cr 125


    The right hand side of the axle requires a 17 or 19mm Allen key to remove it properly. That side of the axle slides thru the fork and the shoulder spaces the wheel. It is retained by the 2 pinch bolts on each fork leg. If you don't have the big Allen key, do this-
    Remove the axle nut on the brake side. Remove the 2 bolts that hold the brake caliper on and swing it out of the way.Loosen the pinch bolts. The axle should slide out now-if it's corroded, you may need a hammer and a drift to drive it out. Be careful not to damage the threads.Note the spacer on the brake rotor side.When putting it back together, clean and lightly grease the axle. Also grease the inside of the lip seals for the bearings. Reinstall the wheel, with the hex end of the axle flush with the fork leg. Tighten the pinch bolts on that side only, and torque the axle nut to about 40NM. Loosen the pinch bolts,and compress your forks down a couple of times. This insures your fork legs are parallel and the wheel is centered. Tighten the pinch bolts, reinstall the caliper and you're good to go!

    When I open bottom or top fridge doors they swing all the way open by themselves instead of staying put partially open


    Hi,
    The fridge needs to be leveled better...
    When the doors swing open then gravity takes over and pulls the doors open the rest of the way...
    to fix this adjust the legs of the fridge so that it leans just a bit away from the hinge side and back just a bit...then the doors will swing closed by themselves...

    The back legs may have to be shimmed and the front leg adjustments are usually right behind the front cover at the floor...sometimes there are screws there to adjust the back legs from the front also...
