I just recovered my bike from my ex after 3 years...the handlebars were not moveable at that time. I have since muscled them loose after days of applying PB Blaster. They are still too sticky to ride safely. Do I need to disassemble and lube? Replace bearing? Or keep squirting and wiggling until they're free?

Thank you!

Time for disassemble, new races and bearings and seals. Use a decent marine grease. What you have in there now for bearings is all rusted to rat poop.

That's what I was afraid of, I don't have a garage at the moment, or a cheap way to move the bike.

Searches neck bearing R&R
