kinetic loose front end

so if i get in front of the bike and hold the front wheel with my legs, i can turn the handle bars left and right. it turns like its something in the middle of the forks that is broken or loose. i've tried tightening the big main bolt for the forks already. any ideas?

Re: kinetic loose front end

anyone?

Re: kinetic loose front end

I'll take a look at mine tonight and see if I can figure this out.

In the mean time you might want to take a look at the exploded parts lists here

Re: kinetic loose front end

Well I took a look at my bike, and I'm confused. On mine, the handlebars are attached in two places to the fork body, which is basically a triangle if you look at it from the top down. The whole thing rotates as a unit, and is attached to the frame through one pipe-like section.

Where does the rotation break down?

Re: kinetic loose front end

it just feels like it doesnt move as solid as it should. it feels like its something in between the top part and where the wheel attaches.

Re: kinetic loose front end

Right up top near the handle bards there should be some bolts into the forks or around them, tighten every thing, there should be a upper and lower tripple clamp which is what you were looking at trianle , tighter them all
