Metric or standard hex drivers for a Roadmaster Mt. Sport SX?

My son got a hand-me-down Roadmaster Mt. Sport SX 24" bike with no manual. Does it require metric or standard hex drivers for replacing brake pads, etc.?

This problem is caused by improperly adjusted derailers/shifters, the mechanism that move the chain from one gear to the next. It is not uncommon for the derailers to be out of adjustment after sitting unused through the winter. Over time the cables that run between the shifters and the derailers stretch just a bit and the derailers no longer work as well without a little tuning up. Unfortunately, for the novice, adjusting the derailers is frustrating at best. The effort and patience it requires is nothing to take lightly. If you're game for giving it a try, there are a number of websites out there that will provide extensive guidance on the process - just "google" how to adjust bike derailers" and you will find plenty of options. My local bike shop will make adjustments like this for a small set price, around $20 or so - you may have a shop nearby that will do the same.

Hope this helps.

What exactly are you needing instructions for? Most bikes are just static frames with a bunch of aftermarket (Shimano, for example) stuff hung on them.

Except for proprietary frames or technologies, everything on a common bike is found on just about any other brand of bike and the individual components are usually documented at the individual manufacturers' websites.

Places like http://www.parktool.com/blog/repair-help document many of the repair and adjustment procedures.

Search Engines will find tons of How-to videos for assembly and adjustment if you just type in the basic question.

Any of the major cheapo bike manufacturers will have a basic or comprehensive generic manual. No one makes manuals for individual models unless they are unique.

Hi I recently bought a used roadmaster mt sport sx bike and the rear gear that's attached to the wheel is moves like in circles... is that supposed to happen... if not how can I fix it?


Lots of things on a bike move in circles. If you mean it moves when you pedal but does not "catch," so the bike does not move forward then that is a problem with the rear gear cluster. You need to have a mechanic look at it. If that's not what you mean you need to get help in providing a more clear explanation.

Graco pack play


Hi Carol, remove the fastener from the opposite side of the one that is missing and take it to a Home Depot or Lowes in your neighborhood. Some well stocked hardware stores may also be able to help. They have both metric and standard threaded screws and bolts and I believe the Graco uses metric. They have boards in the hardware department that should tell you which type you need.

It doesn't usually need to look the same to do the job but if they have nothing to help you out, you will at least know if it's standard (for example 10/24 x 1" which means the screw or bolt is size 10 with 24 threads per inch by 1 inch long) or metric (M5 x 0.8 x 1" which is the metric size closest to a 10/24 x 1") and the type of head, hex or bolt head or a screw driver head, Phillips or flat-bladed.

Armed with that information you'll be able to locate the exact replacement from hardware providers on the internet.

(If the head is unusual, take a picture)

Hope this helps,

I own a 1976 AMF H/D SX175, and I have two questions. 1. I would like to order a shop manual so I can rebuild the bike, where can I find one? 2. My bike is #6,818. How many SX 175's were producwd in...


Your SX-175 is one of the Aermacchi-built Harley-Davidson lightweight bikes built between 1961 and 1978. There were lots of the SX-175's built. Matter of fact, I know where there's one still in the crate.

There are only a few places left that have the parts to repair the bike and it takes some special tools to work on them. I'm not talking about metric hand tools but special tools necessary to split the case and to pull the crankshaft back into the cases if you take it out. The cylinder on the engine is "Nikasil-ed". This means that you cannot bore the cylinder out as only standard sized pistons were available from Harley. You'll have to purchase a new piston and then send it and the cylinder off to have it re-Nikasil-ed. The crank is just a standard two-cycle engine crank.

The best place to find the parts and the manual you want is Moto-Italia. Leslie is a good guy to do business with. http://www.motomacchi.com/ There is also an Yahoo Aermacchi group online. http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/Aermacchi/ Since this forum is not dedicated to the Italian Harleys, contact me directly at wd4ity@bellsouth.net and I'll help you as much as I can. The knowledge base for those bikes is very limited.

Good Luck
