Hi, you're doing it right. If there are no threads on the pedal, it would be best to take it back or buy another set of pedals. Threads can be cut on the existing pedal using a die, but it isn't worth the effort considering the cost of a new pedal. Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

eBay amazon and your lbs (local bike shop). the bike shop will be mire expensive but the service will be well worth it. Unless you know what you are doing and have all the nessesary parts and tools take it tho your lbs. You will be glad you did Ps the left pedal is reverse threded. (righty loucy lefty tighty) Put some bike lube the pedals threads too if that was the prob.

The left pedal of my daughter Kawasaki KX 16 Bike wont go in i think it do not have enough threading


Only the left pedal (as you are sitting on the bike) is reverse threaded.

So for the left pedal you turn the bolt head clockwise (towards the back of the bike) to loosen it.
And for the right pedal you turn the bolt head counterclockwise instead (still towards the back of the bike) to loosen it.

Here are a few links to some website articles and videos with more information:

Just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and highlighted text just above. This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information and videos at the websites indicated.

Thank you and good luck.

Bought a sunny pro indoor cycling bike sf-b901. left pedal wont thread into crank, csn sending crank but i cannot get crank off of bike. how can i do this


Try turning it in in the opposite direction. Bike pedals are reverse threaded which some people will miss when they are putting different pedals. Otherwise try starting the pedal at a slight angle, this may be enough to get the thread started.

My daughters 2 wheeler bike. The pedals spin but ...


There is no trick or latch.
check the chain is sitting on the rear sprocket. If this is correct, and you are turning the pedal crank forwards, it must be damaged

take the bike back for warranty repair

Barbie bike petal broke


You'll have to replace the pedal-it's not really wise or safe to reuse or fix the old one if they break.-they may hurt your little one's feet.
On a side note, pedals are usually only sold in pairs, so you would have to replace both of them-if you want them to match.
Also, take note: the left pedal is a left hand thread, the right pedal is a regular(right-hand) thread. This is so they don't unscrew while the bike is being pedaled. On a standard bike you need a 9/16" wrench to screw/unscrew the pedals. Put the wrench where the pedal goes to the crank, and unscrew it there. The left hand thread means it will be the opposite of the "righty-tighty,lefty-loosey" rule for unscrewing normal right hand thread screws.

Might want to hit it with some penetrating oil and let it soak for a bit, before you try breaking it loose, it might be stiff!

Hope this helps!
