I have been using DMR V8 pedals on my bikes for just a couple of months. They started to spin slowly and make noise really quick so I'm trying to service them.
I'm not sure that I got it right with the versions. It's a bit confusing on their web site.
These are the two pedals I got. I bought both as just "DMR V8" pedals so it's a bit confusing :)
DMR V8 V2
The one with hexnut endcap is v2. DMR says I cannot get any service parts for V2. Are there any other way to service them? Could I for example use the platforms from V2 with service kits for V2.1?
DMR V2 V2.1
I think the one with the grey plastic end cap is v2.1.
It seems as I must buy a special tool to be able to tighten the lock nut. It's too tight to reach with tools I currently have and have been able to service many pedals with in the past.
Ideas or workarounds?
Update: I bought a new pair of shimano platform pedals instead so I'm in no hurry to fix these. But I really don't like to throw away new products that SHOULD work. When / if I get the time I'll just open both up and se if the inner parts are interchangeable.
