You need to install a shim so the bolt has more to clamp on. To do this, loosen the bolt you have been tightening enough that you can pull the handlebars out, then about 3 or 4 more turns. Get an empty soda can and with a pair of scissors, stab into the side of the can near the bottom and cut off the bottom end. Then cut about 2 inches up and cut around the can so you have a roughly 2 by 5 inch strip of aluminum. This is your shim (you may have to trim some length if it doesn't fit). Wrap it around the bottom part of the handlebars where it will go back into the part where the bolt is. Make sure you wrap it tight or it will be hard to put in. Slide the handle bar with the shim on it back into the other tube and tighten the bolt. The end.

Why does the expander on my handle bars always come loose

Remove the bolt and put a lock washer between the bolt and head. That or put some blue loctite on the threads. Just remember to have the head removed from the fork tube before the bolt comes out or the expander will come off in the forks.

Need manual for remington electric chain saw 1,5 hp 14in blade like to know how to tighten loose blade.

There is a slide bolt on the side of all chain saws that allow tightning of the chain. You loosen this bolt and slide the chain bar forward until you can just slide a dime under the chain and the bar. It may take a couple of adjustments as the chain stretches a little after it gets warmed up by the friction of the bar.

When the handlebars are turned, the wheel does not turn with them. Kettrike Air Navigator tricycle

  • It sounds like the quill insert is loose. The handle bar connects to the stem, the stem connects to the quill, the quill connects to the steerer tube.
  • while sitting on the bike, tighten the quill adjustment bolt a half turn at a time until the handlebars turn instantly with the front wheel.

The clamp for the handle bars of the Radio Flyer Tricycle do not keep the handle bars aligned correctly. As the child turns the handle bars to steer, the handle bars become misaligned. Any way to solve...

the clamp is far to loos if you can do the bolt up a bit more that will help if you can becouse there is no more thred left on it,,,undo the bolt and put a washer on the bolt under the nut head and do it up tight again if this still dont work the only other thing you could try is undo the bolt that holds the bars on and pull out the bars,,rap some sticky tape around the shaft and push the bars back into the bike then do the nut and bolt up to pinsh the bars up tight,,,

How do I take off the serpentine belt?

You need to Locate the Belt Tensioner. It will have a Large Pulley with a Bolt in the Middle above the Belt and a Smaller one Below the Belt that keeps Tension on the Belt. You will need a Wratchet, Socket and Cheater Bar. Turn the Bolt in the Middle of the Large Pulley with the Wratchet and Cheater Bar. It will lower the Smaller Pulley so that you can Remove the Belt.
