Rear deraileur shifts to bigger cog smoothly, but not smaller


Could be a few things. Either are common on a bike with this amount of use.

  1. If you have been adjusting the tension of the shift cable, it may be a little too tight. This will provide the snappy up-shift but not allow the derailleur to travel outboard enough to execute the down shift. Loosen the cable by turning the barrel adjuster to the right a notch or two until the shifting is satisfactory.
  2. The shift cable may also be rusted or oxidized. It is common for galvanized cables to be used to cut costs on a new bike and they eventually rust or corrode. These do not provide smooth shifting operation and will eventually result in sluggish down shifting due to increased friction. Replacement is the solution.
  3. The cable housing (black casing that the silver inner wire runs through) may have gotten some dirt or other contaminant inside of it increasing friction. Cleaning or replacement is the solution.
  4. The inner cable may have become kinked - also increasing friction. Usually this results in slow shifting both directions; so this is the least likely. Replacement is the solution.

Stainless steel shift cables are the best to use and run about $5-10 each. New sections of cable housing usually run about $2 per foot.


I hope this helps!

Bike is back firing and bogging down when I get on the throttle. Need to know how to adjust carb.


Before adjusting the carb, has the bike been setting for a long period of time? Has anything been done to the bike that would change carb settings? If it's been setting, there is probably a gum build-up in the jets and fuel passages. If it sat all winter, my solution is to add 1/2 can of SeaFoam to the gas, lock down the front brake and rock the bike back and forth mixing the fuel and additive well. Start the bike and run at a high idle until engine temp is normal. Shut it down and let set for an hour or two, allowing the mixture to work in the carbs. Restart and run at high idle again. If it seems to clear up somewhat, ride the bike several miles to check if it worked.

DRAIN CARBS FROM PETCOCK AT BOTTOM OF EACH CARB MAKE SURE FUEL DRAINS COMPLETELY THEN TURN FUEL BACK ON, IF THIS IS AN INJECTED MODEL DRAIN TANK AND FLUSH THEN RUN IT HARD FOR 20 MILES OR SO, MAKE SURE YOUR OIL LEVEL IS OK

The transmission on your bike is not syncronized like a cars trans. When you are trying to shift from neutral at speed you must slow down to allow the gears to mesh. As far as having to rock the bike into gear sometimes, I have owned eighteen motorcycles of different sizes and makes and have had to rock all of them at one time or another to get them in gear. again lack of syncronization. It really doesn't sound as if you have a problem.
