Removing bar risers and torque values

Postby victorlaszlo » Fri May 18, 2018 12:14 pm

Hi all,

Bought an ST for my dad but it has bar risers - these need removing asap as it's almost unrideable in a progressive way sitting in that position hahaha

So, is it as simple as loosing the clamps in the yoke, loosing the bolts on the clip-ons and the risers, lifting off the clip-ons, removing the risers, shift the fork leg down so that the clip ons can be re-attached below the yoke and then tighten everything up again?

At least seems that simple to me but might be wrong.

The next question really is what the bolts need torquing down to, that is, the yoke, the clip ons and the bolt securing the clip-ons to the yoke (and any other i might have missed).

Let me know your thoughts please - thanks a lot!!!

Not sure of the torque settings for the ST but the procedure for the 11 s is as you describe and I guess the same for the ST . Only thing to watch out for is when the fork tube drops out of the top yoke you need to hold it steady , and a second pair of hands can be useful here.

Cheers John but I don't dare to use something generic for this; depending on the material of the mating bit the torque values would change (for example steel to steel is much higher torque than steel - alu, and various grades of the same metal again have different values) :(

And the steering is quite important hahahaha

When I moved the bars on my 11S from under to on top of the yoke, I just did them "tight" and they aint moved yet.
I do have a well calibrated "feel" though - been spannering for 47 years.
