The two pedals are mounted on an axle bearing caps at both sides. Remove the pedals first by extracting the cylindrical pin & nut.Open the nuts and push the spindle out. Next loosen the ring tightener and then the base by rotating via the punch holes. Once you remove the bearings from that end will come out. Similarly do the other one. Now with the help of grease place the ball bearing inside the cup & tighten it............sodeep

Tension to tight on bike won't losen


Step 1:

please follow the instruction and fix it. God bless you.
Pedal Arms

1

Use a flat screwdriver to unseat the tabs that hold the front top cover in place. This will expose the flywheel and pedal arm connection points. Rotate the flywheel by hand and determine whether lubrication will accomplish the repairs. If the bearings are exposed, use a grease gun with an extension nozzle and lubricate both bearings with lithium grease. If the bearings are damaged or sealed, proceed to the next step.

2

Remove the front and side covers on the main frame. Hold the flywheel with one hand and use a box wrench to loosen the bolts that secure the pedal arms at each side of the flywheel. Pull the arms away from the flywheel and remove the bearings from each side.

3

Test the bearings as before. Lubricate exposed bearings with lithium grease and reinstall them. Sealed bearings must be replaced. Reattach the pedal arms to the flywheel. Replace the main frame covers and front top cover to complete the repairs.


Step 2:

LUBRICATION

1

Prepare to oil by filling a grease gun with lithium grease. Check your owner's manual for the exact type of grease for your unit.

2

Locate where it is you need to lubricate. Focus on the bearings, free-moving joints and attachments with moving parts such as handle bars, wheels, pedals arms and guide rails. Go to each location one by one when greasing.

3

Unfasten the bolts or screws that hold the joint or attachment that you wish to lubricate.

4

Grease each bolt and screw liberally. Tighten each bolt and screw back into its place when finished.

5

Wipe away any excess greas




Step 3:

Drive Belt

1

Remove the screws or bolts securing the ends of the pedals to the crank axles. Slide the ends of the pedals off the axles. Remove any screws or bolts securing the left and right disc shields to the base unit. Pull or pry the disc shields off the base unit and set them aside.

2

Remove any screws or bolts securing the left and right side shields to the base unit. Detach the side shields and set them aside. Examine the interior of the base unit and locate the drive belt.

3

Pull the drive belt free of the crank pulley, flywheel and any other pulleys. Discard the old drive belt and install a new belt in its place. Turn the crank axles by hand to confirm that the belt will turn smoothly when the device is in use

Pedal crank bearing have gone bad is this hard to replace


Not very hard, but you might need special tools. Park tools has excellent tools and good pictures that can be helpful. There are a couple of varieties of how these bearings go together. The old standard style is pretty simple, but you have to fiddle a bit to get the locknut good and tight while keeping the bearing just snug enough to move freely but have very little play. The fancier ones use a sealed bearing which doesn't have to be adjusted.

Need a bearing size or part number to replace a pedal bearing in a huffy stone mountain multi speed 26" bike


Pedal bearing or bottom bracket bearing? Your best bet would be to take it to a local Bike Shop and have them assess it.

Dyno mountain bike with a braking noise


If it is when you pedal, check the bottom bracket (where the cranks are attached) The bearings might need changing which would cause the noise.

Do the handlebars rock back and forward, if so, check and tightent the headset, check the bearings inside if they are dry or broken, replace and re-grease.

My left pedal is broken because it's really worn inside the pedal and I need to replace my pedals.


There are two thread sizes for pedals, make sure you get the right ones. Take the old one with you to the store.

You'll need a crank/pedal wrench to take the pedal off. The gap is too smal to get a normal size wrench in there, but you might get lucky.

Use some penetrating fluid on the thread and leave it overnight before you do it, as they are notorious for getting stuck on. Have a friend stand on the other pedal to keep it still, and undo it.

Tighten up the new one, remember the threads are backwards to normal tightening. Happy riding - vote for me please :)

Weird noise on my bmx bike


It sounds like you have cracked or broken one or both sealed cartridge bearings if thats what your bike has. If it has ball bearings in races they might be broken. Try loosening your rear wheel enough to take the chain off and then turn your crank. See if theres a funny noise or if it feels a little weird when its turning. If you broke a pedal bearing you should be able to tell just by carefully turning each pedal with your fingers and seeing what it feels like. In any case unless you have the tools to repair it you will have to take it in and get it repaired.
