    Hi

    Anyone else had issues with  the dust seal popping out on on the new XTR trail pedals

    I’ve tried pushing it back in with the end of zip tie – but the little bu**er keeps on coming back out again on every ride, tried putting a bit of grease on it as well and that’s not helped either

    Send them back. You shouldn’t have to do that on a new set. Shimano seem to have got worse over the years. They used to be bombproof.

    I’ve had the same problem and had 4 pairs of the new xtr trail pedals warrantied. Seems to be a problem shimano knows about, but doesn’t seem to be fixing?? Thinking of changing to the new xt trail pedals instead but they might have the same fault!

    Not good on a presumably expensive set of pedals. I’d send them back for warranty.

    Especially as their cheap pedals just work and are relentlessly reliable.

    I had that on one of my sets. I tried to undo it to rebuild them and the axle snapped. I sent them back for a refund.

    I think from now on I’ll stick to xt. My 520s and 540s have all been bomb proof for years. Is the weight saving worth it?

    They used to do that on the originals. Shame, ace pedals otherwise. Shimano definitely going downhill over the last few years.

    Had the same on 2 sets. Warrantied both. In the end replaced them with the new xt version that are a few grammes heavier but have been faultless. Baffles me why Shimano have not fixed this and keep just sending them out especially at xtr level. Also refused to admit this is a known fault.
