loose bars
« on: February 11, 2019, 01:54:01 PM »
fitted Rox Riser today but I could not get them tight enough so I put the bars back to standard and could not tighten them either!!
They should be 25nm I have them at 35 nm and they still move when I lean on them. I am to scared to tighten them any more.
Any suggestions?

The tightening procedure is as follows:

Ensure the handlebar holders are installed so that the arrow marks face forward.
With the rear bolts loose tighten the front bolts first so there is no gap.
Then tighten the rear bolts to specified torque  :028:

No that didn't work so I scored some horizontal groves on the underside of the top clamps and used some locketight  :152: seems to have worked.
I have never had this problem on any bike before normally as soon as the bolts are hand tight the bars will hold themselves up not these!!

That should work, I usually take a center-punch to the top half of the bars themselves , 20-30 dimples usually works.
