Your handlebars have two main parts -- the bar itself and the stem. If your bar has been removed for shipping you will need to attach it to your stem.
Please refer to the below diagram and steps for attaching your handlebar.
- Position the bar in the center of the stem to be sure that your handlebar grips are in the correct place and that the angle of the bar itself is comfortable for you.
- Tighten the screws to hold the bar in place in an X-pattern, ensuring all brake and display cables are clear. The suggested torque of these screws is 5-6N.m.
- Tighten the stem screw located at the top of the handlebar stem. The suggested torque between the frame and the stem should be 12-15N.m.
- You may adjust the handlebar stem angle by loosening the allen screws underneath the stem. Tighten the stem adjustment screw after repositioning the stem. The suggested torque of the upper stem should be 8-10N.m.
Check that the forks and the handlebars are facing forward and straight. Stand at the front of your e-bike, squeeze the front wheel with your legs, and twist the handlebar ensuring that the front wheel faces perfectly straight with your handlebar.
