1) replacement spindle with bearings, nylon locking nut, reuseable thread locker, and Oring included.
*IMPORTANT* The Nylon lock nut torque spec is 3 ft/lbs (hand tight) Use an 8mm socket. Once to feel it bottom out stop tightening and visually inspect to make sure the nylon in the nut has engaged with the last couple of threads on the spindle. Over-torquing/tightening will cause the threads to strip and fail.
The spindles are made of Chromoly steel. They are very strong but can bend upon large impact.
These Spindles are non-heat treated and designed to be able to bend back straight. Steal has great fatigue strength when it comes to getting bent. Footpegs tend to take the most abuse out of all the components. We designed our hardware to bend rather than break in a major impact. We find that a wrench or adjustable wrench will quickly and easily bend the bolt back straight. Please avoid using a hammer. I little leverage from a long-handled wrench or pipe is all that's needed.
We use a multiple-use thread locker on the threads. So if you have to remove the spindle for any reason it will not have to be reapplied. We also use an innovative second thread locking system that uses an Oring and grabs the last couple of threads to prevent losing from vibration. Spindles should always be torqued to 30 ft-lbs with a 14mm wrench.
