A loose handlebars: a frequent problem
Has it happened to you that one day the handlebars begins to cringe when you move? As lightweight as is this movement, the grinding becomes stronger. Which is very troublesome, not only for the driver, but also for people nearby. Apparently, this problem is common in the Xiaomi M365 model. Let's see what points you need to take into account if you want to solve it.
One of the most common damage suffered by the Xiaomi M365 electric scooters or their imitations is the misalignment of the direction bar, a phenomenon associated with braking and lack of suspension. This daily wear can be accompanied by a misalignment of the handlebar position with respect to the front wheel, that is, when both are not aligned correctly. This leads to embarrassment when driving and increases the risk of accident.
Fortunately, this is a very easy problem to solve at home. All you need is a 10mm Allen key (or size that best suits the screws of your skateboard), a combined key and a screwdriver (or brake -net). Let's take a step at once ...
Remove the soft from the handlebar vertical bar
The first thing to do is fold the handlebar so that the handlebar axis is visible.
Now work on the steering bar anchor system, primary leader of bad adjustment or releasing the handlebar. What you need to do is:
Step 1: Loosen the inner nut.
Step 2: Tighten the front bolt and try it with the handlebar out until you find the tightening force needed.
Step 3: If the problem is not resolved, repeat the previous step. Tighten and check, tighten and check until the steering bar does not dance when it is out.
Step 4: When you have found the right setting, tighten the inside lock to fix the anchor system again.
Check the front steering system
Once the wrong handlebar setting has been supported, check the front steering system and the direction alignment with the front wheel.
Fold the scooter. Just where the steering bar anchor is located, you will see that there are two opposite screws on one side.
What you need to check is if these screws are loosened. The best thing to do is to remove them both and apply a few drops of fixative to prevent them from getting loosen again during the folding movement.
Another alternative recommended by the experts in repair of this scooter model is to replace these screws with other more resistant steel screws. Indeed, those from the factory are usually not the best and their function is extremely important (crucial, could we say) for management. These are 6 mm (M6x30 mm) English thread bolts, widely used in mountain bikes and easy to find in any bike shop.
Once these bolts are loose, you will also loosen the bolt that keeps the entire steering system with vertical.
Now you will expand the steering bar. With the help of your feet, you will hold the front wheel and shoot the handlebar cautiously until all the front is aligned.
Finally, you tighten the central vertical clamping bolt and then the opposite side bolts of the front system.
In conclusion, you can see that the elimination of squeaks in the Xiaomi M365 scooter is something relatively simple. It's also very common and do not panic, your scooter is perfect. But you have to act if you do not want to stay with the handlebar in the hand. You just have to try these solutions and you will see that they helped you.
