    Default Wheel lean

    I cant seem to get the lean out of the wheel. No matter how much twist I put in it nothing changes. Any ideas?

    Its an 08 Bengal

    You need to put about 10-15 twists in the right hand branch of the yoke cable. Some people say a twist or two, but it takes a lot sometimes. If the yoke twists over itself don't worry about it.

    If possible remove the cables and check if one side of the yoke is longer than the other (without any twists in it). if so you can use the shorter one instead of adding more twists. If this does not help just add some twists. I am not so sure if twisting over itself is such a good idea.

    I don't mean to twist it over itself. Just that sometimes adding so many twists makes the whole cable rotate so the yoke make twist over itself a bit, but only a twist or two. There's still a lot of room for the cam to clear when it rolls over.

    Good idea about checking the possible differene from one side to the other. There isn't a difference most of the time, but it doesn't hurt to check.

    Another thing you can do is remove the E-Clip on the end of the axle and take the black cable anchor off and flip it around or in-side to out-side. Effectively lengthening that cable and shortening the other without adding any twist to either.. Follow me?

    If you feel the right side is being twisted up too much you can also take a couple of twists out of the left side.

    John,

    That's really good info. I've done just that while playing around with X cams. Never thought about it for taking care of cam lean. Good thinking.

    Is there any specific direction that the twists need to be made in?
