    Help: 12x142 Wheelset wobble and Chris King maintainence.

    Hi guys

    I need some help (
    Recently, my chrisking wheelset wobbles at the back when fixed 12x142.
    There seems to be some play like 2-4mm when clampled i dont know whats the problem.

    Also i remember reading some where that chris king hubs needs to be tightened after 60hours of use.
    Can someone link me a guide if how to do it?
    My model is 12x142 iso

    Thanks
    Mark

    You need to check the bearing pre-load, and then tighten the adjusting clamp if there is too much movement. That is covered in the .pdf on page 11.

    Loosen the pinch bolt on the adjusting clamp, hold the other side still while turning the adjusting clamp clockwise until hit stops against the hub. You can remove the pinch bolt all the way out of the adjusting clamp and then insert a small allen wrench into the pinch bolt hole to help turn the adjusting clamp to tighten. As Gabriel J mentions, all in the pdf. Simple adjustment, read the pdf.

    FYI - I don't believe you need to remove the pinch bolt all the way out. There is already a second hole that has been drilled in the pre load adjusting clamp specifically for this purpose (at least this is the case on the CK hub sets I have). Also, I have found that the pre load on CK hubs need to be typically tightened up a bit 2 - 3 times during the break in period so it is a good idea to regularly check the hubs for play (riding the hub with insufficient bearing pre load will damage the hub).

    The older hubs (around 2 or more years ago) did not have the second hole. Also that second hole only allows a very small something to be inserted and sometimes you need more force (or at least I did a time or two) than whatever small diameter you can get to go into the second hole. Something that helps is to remove the adjusting clamp and put a little grease on the threads and re-install it to make it easier to turn.

    You are right, it also normally takes a couple of adjustments as the bearings break in.
