Raising handlebars

There is a single central connection to the handlebars This is called the "gooseneck". (Ther handlebars slide through the goosenect and then the gooseneck is tightened to hold the handlebars. The connector to tighten is in the front (so you do not get "injured" if you have a collison). Loosten the connector (it may be allen, or perhaps hex nut.). Raise or adjust the handlebars, then tighten. Make sure it is really tight (do not strip the threads). The handlebar has serrations to lock on to the gooseneck so the handlebar - gooseneck bolt will have to be loosened quite a bit to allow the serrations to "jump" to the next serration.

How do you raise the handlebars for the animator first bike by Giant bikes?


To raise or lower the handlebars, first loosen the hex screw on the top of the stem. One or two turns is all that will be necessary. Next, you will need to stand in front of the bike with the front wheel between your legs to brace it, and give the handlebars a forceful twist to the left or right. This action will break the friction of the handlebar stem and the headtube (the headtube is part of the frame where the front forks and the handlebar stem meet...). With the handlebars loosened you can adjust the handlbars up or down. Keep in mind that the stem has only a specific amount of adjustment available...there is a limit to how far it can be extended up, as indicated by a line marked on the stem shaft. Once adjusted to the desired height, check that the handlebars and front fork and wheel are aligned. Tighten the screw in the top of the stem and you're done!

Hope this helps.

How to raise handlebars on 2011 crosstrail

You need an allen wrench. On the Top of the "gooseneck" there should be one allen bolt. This is right in the middle of the handle bars, above the tire. You can loosen it there move it up and tighten it back down.

Girls 24inch glacierpoint magna bike can't raise handle bars seems like a allen type screw in middle of bar just turns and still can't lift bar does that need to be replaced or is it something else

If that allen screw just turns both directions, and it won't tighten and it won't raise up when you loosen it, then the wedge nut at the other end of that screw has already fallen off inside. Or it could mean that the screw is broken. Turn the bike upside down and see if you can remove the screw. If it is broken, the repair will be difficult, but not impossible for a bike mechanic. If the screw comes out intact, then the only thing holding the handlbar stem in place is a bit of rust. Put the bike back upright. Stand over the bike as if you were going to ride it. Grip the front wheel between your knees and twist the handlebars as if you were steering while preventing the wheel from turning with your knees. Once it breaks free, pull it all of the way out. Turn the bike over again and the wedge nut should fall out. When you reassemble, take heed of the marking on the handlebar stem so that you don't raise the stem too high. Good luck.

1985 Ford Ranger Mitsubishi diesel is overheating. Water pump looks good. How do I check it and where is the thermostat located? thanks

Find a garage, maybe Walmart who will test the Radiator cap. Or just buy a new cap and see if it helps. The thermostats are almost always beneath the water supply from the Radiator. If the cap was weak you will get a higher pressure with a new one and the boiling point will be raised which is a good thing.

In that time frame Ford was putting the Thermostats inside the Gooseneck where the main hose is. It was a pain because some of the aftermarket thermostats did not have tabs on them. The tabs were necessary to twist and lock into the Gooseneck housing.

If you are only a recent owner of this truck you may want to investigate further about the thickness of the Radiator. The diesels could have larger Radiators than a gas Ranger, Thanks for using Fixya.
