Take it to a professional because it entails brake adjustment and if he wants to do tricks, it would be dangerous if they are not working properly.

How to fit a odyssey g3 gyro set

Hi MonkeyManTim

Firstly, remove the centre lock nut on the stem. This loosens the stem/headset. Pull the handlebars up and rest them next to the front wheel, make sure the brake cables aren't being stretched too much.

You'll see there is a locknut on the headset (at the top of the frame/top tube where you pulled the stem from) and loosen this (might need a massive spanner!).

Pull offthe toppart of the headset, ball races and lower part. Replace with the gyro bottom and top parts. Grease the ball bearing if they aren't already!

Slide it together, fit the stem and you'll notice the brake lines that come with it. Undo the rear brake, run the splitter cable from the front lever to the top half of the gyro, same with the bottom half. I found putting some padded stickytape on the bars helped here as the splitter cable would 'ting' off the bars.

Undo the front brake and run it through the stem hole, through the forks and cable tie it to one fork leg.

Test the brakes, adjust where necessary and on you go pulling bar-spins for fun. Please don't land a jump with the bars half spun, it hurts....a lot!!

My brakes dont spring back when i pull them

Your brake cables may have rusted. Get some light lubricating oil (like household 3-in-1 or sewing machine oil) and disconnect the cables from the levers. Tie the ends upright and drop by drop add the oil to the ends of the cables so that the oil runs into the cable sheath. It's a slow process, but it will work. Don't rush. Once you've added enough oil, after a day you should see it drip from the bottom end of the cable. Try working the cables in the sheaths by hand and then re-attach to the levers.

I can't fit back together my gyro brake system on my gt fly 2007. is there an instruction manual available please?

Try this link. I'm putting mine back together after stripping and repainting the frame. I consider myself mechanically inclined but this is a confusing set up! My problem is that the kid I bought the bike from had it set up incorrectly?? I hope. because from what I can tell, the bottom plate should directly contact the frame, thus i need to remove the headset, install the bottom plate (which says odyssey gyro) and then tap the headset back into place. from there, install top bearings and refer to the picture in the link. I'm doing some research to figgure out what the hell I am doing wrong, and why cant I figgure this thing out!! I think I have it, gonna try again tonight. SO if any of you ppl who have actually installed these things correctly notices that this is incorrect, please inform us! Hope this helps!
