Re: Hard to turn Handle bars how do i fix?

is it only hard to turn when you are going fast? do they turn freely when you are not moving?

Re: Hard to turn Handle bars how do i fix?

no they are still moving hard but i put WD-40 and its softer than it was

well... lets think about this

Dave Chudak /


if light lubrication works, then..... maybe greasing the headset would be a good idea....

it that doesnt work, then take apart the headset and see if the bearings are cooked (if there are any);.... if not, clean, grease, and re=assemble..


Do not use WD-40 on the bearings.

WD-40 is a DE-GREASER, and will eat the grease off of the bearings, and it will eb evnen harder to turn. Instead, get some actual bearing grease, and lube them up
