Ball bearings fell out of handlebar connection on 3-speed bike.

Was adjusting handlebar when ball bearings fell out. It's a 3 speed 1969 model Made in England mens bike. The gear adjustment is in the right grip handle. The steering is real tight now, and doesn't steer well. Help.

Take it to a professional bike shop. They have the knowledge and tools to set it right.

Or take a look at this:

The headset nuts were not necessary to be moved for handlebar adjustment. Now the bearing load is too tight. Correct adjustment of the headset requires a delicate balance between tightness and freedom of movement. If your bike has/had the original bearings it's a safe bet they may be due for replacement anyway.

How many ball bearings are there supposed to be on each side of the front axle of the Schwinn Point Beach model S4852WM bike?


There will always be a small gap in the bearing ring, and not all hubs take the same amount. However, if the balls are 3/16" there are almost always 10 on each side. If they are 1/4 inch (less common) then 9 is the correct amount. DO NOT replace only some of them - replace only in a full set of 20 or 18.

NEED TO REMOVE CLUTCH CABLE FROM CLUTCH


Loosen the clutch cable adjuster and increase the slack in the cable. Remove the jesus clip on the bottom of the clutch perch at the handlebars. Push up on the pin that holds the cable in the clutch perch and remove the pin. Pull the top end of the cable out of the clutch perch. Remove the trans side cover. There is a ball and ramp attatched to the inside of the cover with a retaining ring. Push the ramp all the way to the front, turn the cable 180 degrees and remove it from the ramp. it is easier to do this if you remove the retaining ring, then take out the ball and ramp. Be careful not to loose the 3 ball bearings! Unscrew the cable from the trans cover and you are done. Installation is the reverse of removal. When reassembling the ball and ramp, it is easier if you put grease in the indentations for the ball bearings, to hold them in place. Before reinstalling the trans cover, make sure the ball and ramp are pushed toward the rear of the bike.

Shaking in handlebars


Your tire is out of balance, your steering head bearings are not tight, and you are running too low of a pressure in your front tire.
