- Flathead screwdriver
- Waterproof Grease
- Optional: pedal wrench
Pedal Service: Approximately 20 minutes Difficulty: Moderate
We recommend that you look at the Exploded view & read ALL steps of the service instructions before you begin.
We recommend servicing one pedal at a time as the Right/drive side axle nut (8) is Reverse threaded.
LEFT PEDAL : Coated lock nut. (Black color) RIGHT PEDAL: Chrome plated lock nut. (silver)
NOTE: You can perform this service without removing the pedal from the crank, however, we recommend servicing your pedals on your work bench or clean surface.
STEP 1: END CAP REMOVAL
Using your 6mm Hex key, unthread the pedal body cap (10) from the pedal body (6).
STEP 2: LOCK NUT REMOVAL
While holding the axle (5) with your pedal wrench or 8mm Hex key, insert the 8mm deep socket and remove the axle nut (9) from within the pedal body (6). Once the nut is fully removed your axle will slide out.
STEP 3: AXLE & AXLE SEAL REMOVAL
Axle (5) will slide out easily now. Remove the axle seal (4). Pay attention to the direction it sits onto the axle. Be sure that the thicker side of the pedal axle seal is facing out towards the narrow end of the axle.
STEP 4: WASHER & BEARING REMOVAL
Push bearing (7) & washer (8) out with the long end of your 6 or 8mm Hex key. As the bearing comes out, be sure to catch the washer before it drops & gets lost.
STEP 5: BUSHING REMOVAL
Push bushing (3) out with the long end of your 6mm Hex key or flathead screwdriver.
STEP 6: CLEANING & ASSESSMENT
Clean old grease and any grit, dirt or grime from the axle (5) & inside of the pedal body (6).
Assess all components for damage, dirt, wear
STEP 7: AXLE SEAL
Slide new axle seal (4) all the way onto the axle (5). Be sure that the thicker side of the pedal axle seal is facing out towards the narrow end of the axle.
Proper installation of this seal is crucial to keeping grit and water out of your pedals. Without it you risk premature failure to the bushing, bearing and axle.
STEP 8: GREASE COMPONENTS
Once axle seal (4) is installed in the correct orientation and position, grease new bushing, bearing and axle before installing.
STEP 9: INSTALL BUSHING
Push the bushing (3) into the pedal body (6) by hand until seated.
STEP 10: INSTALL BEARING & WASHER
Push the bearing (7) into the pedal body (6) using the 8mm deep socket until it is seated. Carefully place the bearing washer so that it is sitting centered & flat on the bearing (7).
STEP 11: INSTALL AXLE
Push the freshly greased axle (5) into the pedal body (6).
STEP 12: INSTALL AXLE NUT
While holding the axle (5) with your pedal wrench or 8mm Hex key, Use your 8mm socket to tighten the axle nut (9) to 3-4Nm.
NOTE: Be sure to use the correct lock nut to avoid cross threading your nut or axle.
STEP 13: INSTALL END CAP
Using your 6mm Hex key, thread the end cap (10) into the pedal body (6) until torqued to 2-3Nm.
Repeat all steps for the second pedal.
STEP 14: INSTALL PEDALS
Once both pedals have been serviced and any excess grease ahs been wiped off. add a small amount of grease to the pedal threads and install them into your cranks.
Congratulations, you have now successfully serviced your composite pedals.
