Default Re: Is it normal ? / How to fix this ?

Hi Norke, and welcome to the forum.

I have a used pair of Axis longboards and basically I have the same issue - there's some play with the ball bearings (a bit more pronounced on the main pedal). I'm curious what others might say but I suppose there's not much to do about it. Getting some replacement parts from Axis maybe?

That ball bearing play doesn't affect the playing itself though and I don't perceive any noise when actually playing the pedals, even when using swivel technique. So I stopped caring about it.

Maybe you could slip some very thin plastic material between the heel block and the bearing shaft, that might help. I haven't tried this yet.
I guess the play comes from using the pedal(s) but there might be some play even from stock, when you buy them new.
