SOURCE: can't remove lever hadle to replace cartridge. no

the lever handle on that faucet is two pieces, it seperates at the top of the big round part. Hold the big round part with one hand and unscrew the smaller round piece out of the top of it. You must turn the small round part, turning the handle will do no good.

SOURCE: I changed handle bars on a 2002 harley 1200C. When

thats because there is air in the line now, you will have to bleed the brake system top up fluid, pump the lever a few times and hold it down, open the bleed screw on the front wheel brake caliper and close it again, repeat this procedure until you have a good flow of fluid coming out. You should have brakes now if you have done this properly

How to release break on Poulan 2150 chainsaw

If the handle has gone there is no easy way to release the brake, it is now a case of removing the two bar nuts and use a screw driver into the area between the guide bar and the cover to lever it off, once off either a new brake complete or new hand guard, it is possible to refit a hand guard and pull back to release the brake, it is not too easy so good luck.

How do I connect the brake cable to the handle bars on Mongooose bmx scan R60

Brake cables have a knob on the end of them, that knob fits into the brake lever. A great web site for more information is "". To install the cable ends, brakes must be released at the other end. The top of the cable at the brake should have a disconnect on it. That frees up the cable, so iut can be connected.

I just purchased the vision trimax semi integrated bars. my local lbs called and said the sramm tt500 brakes arent compatible, becuase they are internal routed, and the bars are externally routed. i went...

True - If you are using a TT brake lever that straight routes the cables internally such as the SRAM, Bontrager and Profile ABS then you can not use those levers with your specific base bar.

The Trimax model you have is also not well suited to drilling for internal as there is not enough internal hollow space. THEY DID NOT FORGET TO DRILL HOLES, these bars were not intended for internal routing.

The simple solution is too change your brake levers. The Profile Quickstop 2 are excellent levers and route externally or if you want the same shape as the SRAM go with Cane Creek Carbon levers.

If you want internally routed cabling, you will have to buy a different bar set-up. If you need additional help on this, This is exactly what I do for a living. or my blog

Spongy Front brakes, braided hoses fitted direct to each caliper from master cylinder, also replaced brake master cylinder seals, bleed them to death, to remove air, pressure remains constant at brake...

try using a line locker close to master cyclinder ,lever should go rock hard if it has no air in system,work line locker down lines to see if lever stays hard.
also check the lever travel to make sure that lever is pushing on master cyclinder plunger as a lot of after market levers dont have correct casting and have to travel in a long way before brakes work even when system is bled. also check to make sure calliper carriers are not bent and pads not sitting square on rotors.
hope this helps

The housing of my brakes on the handle bars is loose and keeps moving. how do i tighten it so that it stops moving when i apply pressure on it and/or squeeze the brake lever??

If the screw is all the way tight and still slipping ... try to find a fatter part of the handle bar to mount the grip to. You will probably will not find any such that is convenient for you to continue to use the brake ... remove the grip, wrap some electrical tape around the handle bar, reattach the grip. Tighten it and give it a try.

I hope this works for you

Bought a set of avid juicy seven ultimate brakes,i squeezed the brake lever and now the pads are shut tight how do i slacken them off again!

take the wheel out insert a very large flat bladed screw driver up into where the rotor would sit and lever the pads back in very gently with the screw driver.

if this does not shift them they will need re-built by a Sram bike shop.
