SOURCE: replace handle bars

Mine had wiring inside the bars as well. Basically I removed the controls from the bars, and removed the 2 bolts holding the handle bars on. I removed the RIGHT side gas tank after draining it. I intended on cutting the wires to the connectors, pulling the wires out of the old handle bars, and pulling them back through the new bars. Note: Mark the black wires very carefully, since there were 5 black wires in the two connectors and they are all unique wires. The colored wires were easy, just match them back up. Several tricks I found on line. Use a string and a bolt to fish a pull line down through the new bars then pull the wire bundle through. This worked great on both left and right wire bundles. I then bolted the new handle bars in place and remounted the controls. I then replaced the shrink tubing up the bundles that hid the actual wires as they came out of the handle bars down to where I cut the connector wires, behind the right side tank. Next I stripped and tinned all the wires I cut (twist and get a little solder to stick on the wires) and stuck little pieces of shrink tubing up or down the wire so after I resoldered the wire I could shrink the insulation back over the splice. I picked up the shrink tubing and some extra wire a home depot. I had a soldering iron, and heat gun so away I went connecting the dots again. Litte tedious but hey. It saved me somewhere between $500 -$700 bucks which is what the harley shop quoted before I started. I tested each function, then reinstalled the gas tank and tightened up all the stuff. Below is the pin out in case you do loose a wire marker, like I did. Good Luck.

The seat post size is probably stamped on the post you have, ditto for the stem.

Adjust handle bar height ?


looking at some pictures of this model, most appear to be using an "Aheadset" style handlebar stem, there is not any way to raise this type of stem. Your alternative is to go online or to a local bike shop and purchase a new stem that will fit your fork and handlebar that has a higher pitch angle to it, or a compatible adjustable stem that pivots. Expect to pay $25-$50 or more for a new handlebar stem, not including labor to install.

My bikes handlebar is coming out on the left side. I don't really know anything about bikes so I need help. (Its a 26" Huffy Mountain Bike)


On the steering stem were the handle bars go through there will be a clamp. This clamp will have one, two or four bolts tht clamp the handle bar.
Depending on the type of bolt used on your bike you will need a ring, socket or allen wrench. Loosen these bolts of about two turns anti clockwise and center your bars and then tighten the bolts.

Huffy stalker 18 speed, I can't tighten the stem.


If you are talking about the handle-bar stem, the bolt you need to tighten is right in the middle of the post. It may have a snap-on plastic cover over it. This will be the head of a long bolt that reaches down inside of the stem where the nut is shaped as a wedge that serves to tighten inside the tube of the front fork. If you are talking about the the seat-post, then your seat-post might be of too small diameter.This page shows a good picture of the handle-bar stem bolt and wedge nut.

What size should I get?


A bike is the right size when your child can:

•Sit on the saddle and rest the balls of both feet on the ground.
•Straddle the top bar with a comfortable clearance and with both feet flat on the ground.
•Reach the handlebars with a slight bend in the arms when sitting on the seat. If there are handbrakes, your child should be able to grasp them and apply enough pressure to stop the bike.
•ByK bikes have more knee room than other bikes, which helps to lengthen the life of the bike and make the bike handle in a more predictable way.
As your child grows, you can raise the seat post and handlebar stem according to the owners manual limits.

How do i raise the handle bar?


behind the handle bars, where it joins to the bike is called a stem. Remove the center allen key bolt that runs down the center tube. Lift the handle bars up an inch and tighten the allen key bolt again. Your handlebars will now be a little higher for you.

Another way is to loosen the clamp bolts that hold the handlebars to the stem. With riser bars, you can twist them in the same spot and this will angle them up a little. You will have to loosen the brake/gear levers and angle them down until they suit you.

If neither of these works you can buy stems which have varying heights and lengths.

Hope this helps, please vote for me.

Need to raise the handle bar on my 2007 Marin Argenta road bike.


The stem for the marin is fixed so you'd have to replace it with one that is higher if you wanted to raise the elevation of your handle bars. You can pivot the handle bars for your preferred angle of comfort though. Loosen the 4 screws on the top of the stem and then you can adjust the handle bars to the correct angle that is best for you.

Handlebar+Wheel


I am assuming that you have a standard headset type bike, not an AheadSet style head set, where the stem actually works to hold the fork in place.

In standard headsets, the stem has a jam wedge which pulls tight in the fork stem and locks the stem in place.

Is that wedge missing? Is the bolt that extends through the wedge stripped or worn? You may need a new stem to get it to pull tight.

If this does not help you, post more clearly what is going on.

I need to raise the height of my handle bars.


I am not sure which question to answer, so I will try both.

raising the handlebars, loosen the stem bolt 4or 5 turns, (this is the bolt on on the top of the handlebar stem). Tap the stem bolt with a hammer, the bold should drop down and the handle bars should fall loose, adjust as needed, then tighten the stem bolt to set.
Please note, there is usually a limit line on the stem, do not raise bars above this level as iy will make the handle bars unsafe and could pull out or break off.

second question, Child seats ar very adaptable, an will fit most bikes. Be sure to use all the necessary hard ware and safety guards. for you and your passenger.
Try to get the seat set up as low as possible as the higher the seat the higher the center of gravity. It will have less effect on handling characteristics if you keep the seat low.

I hope this is of some help.
