adjusting ksyrium ssc sl bearings
i was cleaning my bike with the back wheel clamped in an indoor trainer and i noticed a lot of side to side play in the rear wheel. i removed the cassette and using the mavic tool i snugged up the silver ring with the dimples in it.
however there was still some side to side play and i noticed that one side of the axle protruding from the hub was loose and i could unscrew it by hand. one side of the axle is silver and the other side is black. i unscrewed the silver side all the way by hand and then both halves of the axle slid out of the hub. i slid them back into the hub and screwed in the silver side by hand until they joined together and were snug and then the side to side play was gone. it looks like an allen wrench will fit inside the silver side of the axle. however there doesn't appear to be an opposing wrench flat anywhere to use to tighten the allen wrench. should i be tightening that down? and how?
also how tight/loose should the silver ring with the dimples on it be?
