Renthal Bars creaking

Postby Afghanhound » 22 Apr 2015, 08:53

Hi - apologies if this has been asked before, but does anyone else have any issues with their Renthal bars creaking and clicking?

I called Renthal - they were a bit cagey, and said they may have had these issues before. He then went on to say there is an 'in-house fix' they can do for this, or they can swap the bars, but I would have to send them back first.

Just wondered if anyone else had this, and if they just ignored it!!

Thanks.

My plan is to take out the crossbar and refit with teflon washers.
Then loctite the bolts 8)

Yer I did every time the gate went down they would make a clicking sound tried everything to sort it out and in the end it turned out there was dirt in and around the clamps cleaned it out quick drop of spray grease done the clamps back up and have not had a problem since

Yes, mine do it after a session on a dusty track - after the bike has been cleaned and lubed all quiet again
