- Replacing bushing in pedals?
Instructions say ‘special tools required’ to remove the bushing from superstar ultra-mags but no clues as to what this is!
Anyone know how it’s done? Replacing just the bearings didn’t fix the wobble 🙁
Thinking perhaps a washer with the sides filed off, trouble is it’s tiny! only about a cm across
any ideas?Posted 5 years agojonbaMember
Email superstar they gave me an answer for the nanos. It was a 10.8mm drift wide enough to hit the bushing but narrow enough to fir through the lip just infront of it.
If you google DMR bushing replacement they have a tool to do this that can be bodged from a BMX pedal axle. BAsically you srew it into the bushing as it is soft then pull it out. Again, only works if you have the right size thread/bolt.Posted 5 years agoDobboMember
As an aside, I’ve finally given up on eggies after years with them due to bushes/bearing wearing out and ending up with the beater coming off spindle. Giving XT a go now. The reason I carried on so long was that I had 3 sets of pedals and shoes that were compatible.
Just need to get that off my chest, I feel cleansed now. 8)Posted 5 years ago
