So I just recieved my race railz and axle sliders from powers.
I did not realize that the axle sliders have a long bolt that goes all the way thru the axle.
Is it ok to remove the cotter pin and leave it off so I can install the sliders?
Anyone have any experience with this?
all the cotter pin, or zip tie is there for is to PREVENT the nut from backing off, from vibration or whatever.
but couldnt u just "S" bend the cotter pin, and slide the bolt in. theyre pretty soft metal. i think itd be easy to make it work.
right on. thats what i was looking for.
that mushroom is for a blind, NON threaded hole.
anyway, you unscrew it aways, push it into a hole(not threaed) and just start to tighten it up. the 2 angled parts pull against each other causing it to get tighter.
its got a knurled head tho, seemingly for hand tightening. where it that supposed to go?
