    Can anyone tell me the tools i need to adjust the bearings on shimano M 520/540 pedals. Mine have started to need a bit of adjustment and it seems they need some special tools to do it?

    I've never serviced any of mine, I find that a regular drop of oil is sufficient to keep them working OK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You might find that stripping them down will be the end of them......squirt some grease in there...run them into the ground and then buy some more...I have the same pedals.
