Forward pressure on Look PX12s?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I have a pair of Look PX12 Ti Fluids on some Contact 9s. I'm still trying to get the forward pressure adjusted on these bindings. The "indicator" is not half split between yellow and black. It's all yellow. Thus, it doesn't seem to be right, because the tech manual said there should be a split. What am I doing wrong? How can I get the forward pressure correctly adjusted? When I try to adjust by lifting the metal lever and moving the piece, it simply slides. It won't click into more than one place.

Thoughts?

I didn't have a problem getting mine adjusted. On mine it was never halfway, but just somewhere in the box. Trying to get it exactly half way might not be possible. If you are having that much trouble take it to a shop.

Or, it could be that you are at the end of the adjustable "slide" scale...

Look for the black line in the yellow box. When in doubt, make it visible in the forward section when the boot is in the binding. Use a large flat head screwdriver to pry the adjuster up to allow the heel piece to slide on the track. It will stay up and not lock down unless you click it back down manually. Good luck.

1) by black line, you mean the end of the yellow indicator?

2) so i have to click the tap back down manually, or else it won't lock into place? i can slide the whole piece back to only one spot. everywhere else, it seems to be free. but, if i push it back down, i'll be set?

Slide the heel forward until it almost hits the boot heel. Then force the adjuster tab back down.."click." Step into the binding and look in the yellow window. You should see a little black (vertical) line appear. If you can't see the line, you aren't adjusted correctly.

if i move the heel piece, it literally stays in place at only one position. if i move the whole heel part of the binding along with Fluid "track", then i can get the yellow indicator to move within the window. it is halfway in the window when the heel part of the binding is touching the boot, and literally there is a little friction between the boot and binding in the heel before it snaps in.

sound right?

on the PX Fluid if your your forward pressure is correct the "window" should be halfish yellow/halfish black
there will be no "little black line" and people stating otherwise should limit themselves to typing what they know
the current fluid binding should be adjustable without tools so if you are prying up anything with a screwdriver congratulations you have already screwed up the binding or rail
go to a shop and get it done right....

i have neither screwed up the binding nor the rail. your reply has simply confirmed what i thought. moving the whole heel part of the binding will set the forward pressure more or less automatically. it makes much more sense than the metal tab that can be lifted. thank you.

If the tab is lifted all the way up it stays in place unless you force it down. The PX12 and Axial2's are tougher to get the forward pressure set correctly then other bindings, and usually it seems like it's sitting right under the heel when it is set right.

waxman, I think you'd have a helluva time trying to get the tab lifted without a flathead.

read my lips on the FLUID binding there is no "tab" as the heelpiece is on a rail...

Thanks guys, I was trying to get my Mythic Rider adjusted according the posting and had a difficult time to understand it. After some time to fiddle with the heel piece on the Fluid system, finally I got it right, now its adjusted with half white and half black. Its pretty obvious when its done, but before that I had a hell of time to figure it out.
