I want to ship the bike but don't know how to take it apart. I have a bike box. How do I remove the pedals and handlebars? What is the minimum dis-assembly I can get away with? Exactly what tools do I need to do this easily? Thank you for your help!

Google: "packing a bicycle for shipping". Many videos.

I'd advise you to have an experienced cyclist or bike shop supervise and evaluate the process (unless you realy don't care about your bike working upon arrival). It's a rite of passage for any cyclist who travels.

Handlebar grip needs to be replaced


Any bike shop should have those. You may have to split the bad one with a razor knife to get it off. You may want to use soapy water to make putting the new one on easier.

My steering his still and cranky I think my bearings have gone not sure how yo undo the head case


Mark:

I don't know what type of bicycle you have, or how modern it is, but the handlebar and steering head are similar on most models. Try to remove the handlebars and steering head from the bike as a unit. There is a large nut at the top of the head tube (where the steering stem goes into). Loosen this nut, and the handlebars and steering stem should pull up and out of the bearing inner races. When you completely remove that nut, the headset will come apart... (including the fork and front tire which will drop out of the headset. If your brake and shifting cables are too short to let you pull the steering stem completely out of the steering head, you'll need to remove the handlebars from the steering stem. If you are careful, the bearing set, spacers and washer will stay on the fork tube when it comes out of the bicycle frame head, so you will know which order to reassemble them in. Either tag them or lay them in the proper order. Now you can clean the bearings or replace them.
It would be a good idea to clean the bearing races at the top and bottom of the steering head too.

Once everything is cleaned and ready to reassemble, grease the bearings and the bearing races and reassemble. When you tighten the stem nut down, make sure that there is no play between the steering head and the steering stem.

Bike to high


If the big is really too big, then it's not safe to ride, and blocks on the pedals are not a good idea. On the other hand, if you can straddle the frame of the bike with your feet nearly flat on the ground, then the bike is not too big. You can lower the seat, and many seats can also be adjusted forward and back an inch or two. The optimum seat height is when you put one pedal all of the way down, with the heel of your foot on the pedal, then you should be able to lift your weight off of the seat. You can also bring the handlebars closer if the handlebar stem you have has a typical length offset (if you picture the handle bar stem as an inverted hockey stick, the the offset is the length of the hockey stick blade) - if so, you can replace it with a stem with a smaller offset. If the stem already has a very small offset, you can turn it backwards, but don't do this if the offset is more than 1 inch.
Good luck.

I dont know how to put my water bottel on my magna bike


Many bikes are sold without a water-bottle holder, but have a place to install one. You will likely have to purchase a water bottle holder, and install the water bottle holder yourself.
Most bikes have a spot for one on the Down Tube. (The Down Tube is the part of the frame that runs from the handlebars to the pedals.) Look on the top of the Down Tube, and see if there are two screws. Likely you will need an allen wrench to remove them and install the holder.

How to get acsess to my handlebars to tighten


You must remove the Nachele to get to the handlebar risers. They are bolted through the top triple tree. Of course, you must also remove anything that prevents you from gettng the nachelle off such as windshield, fairing, and headlight. Note: Sometimes if you turn the front end fully to one side, you and get to the large nut or bolt from the bottom side without removing he nachelle. Turn the front end to the other direction to get to the other nut or bolt.

Now, keep one thing in mind, the handlebar risers are mounted in rubber bushings. This is done to reduce handlebar vibration. Harley has used this vibration dampening system for years on their big twin bikes. Your handlebars may not be "loose" but move due to the rubber mounting. Before I went to tearing my bike apart, I'd feel of some other bikes handlebars first and compare it to what yours feel like.

You can get more firm bushings for the handlebars. Matter of fact, you can get steel bushings that eliminate the rubber mounting.

Go to this site and check out page 990
http://www.vtwinmfg.com/Catalog1/VTwinCatalogIndex1.htm It is the V-Twin manufacturing catalog and shows the handlebar riser bushings. Good Luck
