- KS LEV failure
Got a LEV a month ago, noticed a small bit of play and wrote to Superstar who said it was the cradle on backwards probably and wanted pics for the warranty.
Read the forum looking for gripes and found others with 3-4mm play but all was still OK.
So I watched the KS video and re-installed everything just to make sure I’d done everything correctly and went to Cannock today (as I have no spare seatpost at the mo).
Half way around my seat had moved all the way back, even though the bolts were torqued correctly.
Later at the bottom of a descent the seat had pratically come off and was only being kept on by the skin of the bolts. Was a good job a hadn’t sat on the seat during the descent as christ only knows what would have happened.
Anyone else experiencing similar problems?Posted 4 years agop7richSubscriber
Any picture of it?
Pic’s would be helpful for other LEV owners as i’m not quite sure what has happened to yours. Did your bolts come loose? Mine’s a month or so old and the saddle clamps bolts did come loose once a few weeks ago. I tightened it back up and been OK since.Posted 4 years agomatther01Member
No pics at the minute, but the bolts appear to working themselves loose because of the amount of play.
Not entirely sure how I could have put the cradle on backwards as superstar state as its pretty obvious which way around it sits and is exactly as the KS video shows.
The seat had literally tipped backwards when I got to the bottom the descent.
Will get pics to Neil at superstar tomorrow…not holding out much of it being fixed anytime soon 🙁Posted 4 years agoPriddsSubscriber
Mine shifted first ride out and I then rounded the bolt of trying to get it to 10nm as it suggests. I have swapped the front bolt for a m5 bolt with a v brake convex washer to replicate the shape of the original and it’s been fine since. Have to do it up every ride but will try thread locker as abovePosted 4 years ago
