Good news > save your money on the clutch. Bad news > Invest it in new shift forks. What you describe is a standard symptom of bent shift forks. Sorry to be the one to tell you this.

SOURCE: clutch not engageing

Start by changing the gearbox oil and the filter. Ride for 50 miles or so then change the oil again but w/o a new filter this time. Doing this will flush the dirt and grit from the gearbox. Use 10 w40 Pennzoil, Mobil, Shell or any other major brand.

The clutch is not fully dis-engaging. That is what is causing the shifting problems. Hopefully a shift fork has not been bent in your efforts to shift gears. The cost of 6 or 7 quarts of oil and an oil filter is nothing next to the cost for replacing bent shift forks.

Please rate this solution. Thanks Coty!

SOURCE: I HAVE A MGX MOUNTAIN BIKE. WERE THE PEDAL ARE

im certain that model has a 3 piece crank set up. the inner crank bearing jam nut has loosened up or the bearings themselves have gone bad.first check to see if its tight, if it is then it will require a replacement set of bearing that are a pretty standard size to all bikes and can be purchased at nearly every bike shop.

SOURCE: backfire during shifting between gears

could be few probs, carbon build up on piston crown try a good cleaner fuel additive, your exaust is leaking or blowing allowing air to be sucked back in on revdown as well as you could have a inlet fault overfueling leaving to much unburnt fuel to enter your exaust, might be simple fix by just replacing the air filter and checking for burn marks around the air intake.

SOURCE: operator manual for huffy crosswind bike grip shift

Look for the manufacturers name and model number on the gripshift and check at www.parktool.com. Look under derailleurs for repair tips which will give you an idea how they work. A twelve speed has six gears on the rear sprocket and two on the crank giving you a combination of twelve speeds. sheldonbrown.com is another good site with good articles and pictures.

How do you use all the gears on a mgx dsr 21 speed mountain bike?


The way I start inexperienced rider out is by using only the left shifter first. Take a ride and only shift the left side up and down. Remember to pedal when shifting, Backpedaling or coasting may cause the chain to come off. Once you are familiar the left shifter, move to the right one. Up and down several times. Most experienced riders don't use all of the gears and only use the lower gears I steep hilly situatiuons

I need 2,3 & 4 gear for Yamaha 1100 special 1982 model


Instructions
    • 1 The gears on a motorcycle run in this order: first, neutral, second, third, fourth and fifth. When you are moving, shifting up from first gear will skip over neutral and shift you right into second gear. The only time that shifting up from first will get you into neutral is when you are not moving.
    • 2 Pull in the clutch lever and tap the gear lever down until it stops. This will signify first gear. Pressing the gear lever down will shift you down one step and pressing it up will shift up one step.
    • 3 Tap the gear lever up one click while still holding in the clutch. This will put the bike into neutral.
    • 4 Start the bike. The bike needs to be in neutral to start.
    • 5 Hold in the clutch lever and tap the shifting lever down to shift to first gear.
    • 6 Release the clutch slowly and give it just enough gas to get moving.
    • 7 Listen to the motor to know when you need to shift. If the engine is making a low grumbling noise, then it will need to be shifted down. If it is making a high squealing noise, then it needs to be shifted up.

In shifting though gears, with bike running and stationary, after shifting in to first gear hard to shift into neutral without tuning off power to bike.


The bike has a slightly bent shift fork. The repair is a pretty major operation and I don't recommend the casual mechanic attempt it. Below is a diagram showing how the shift drum moves slider gears for different gear changes. Please rate my answer. Thanks. tombones49_128.gif

18 speed bike 6 gear shift works fine 3 gear


If the cable is rusty or otherwise binding it won't let the derailleur fall toward the smaller sprockets when the control is moved. Likewise, it may not even let you move the control in the direction that pulls the cable (bigger rings).

If you don't know much about the process I suggest you read this:

http://coachlevi.com/cycling/complete-beginner-guide-to-bicycle-gears-shifting/

and take the bike to a Local Bike Shop for a look-see and maybe a tune-up.

Wont shift into 2nd


First, with the bike not running, rock the bike back and forth and try to shift the gears. You should be able to shift up through all the gears and back down. If you can't, the problem is in the shifting mechanism. They've had some shifter pawl problems on earlier models. You'll have to pull the primary cover to get to the shifting mechanism.

Next, put the bike in first gear with the engine off. Now, pull the clutch in and try to start the engine. If the bike lurches forward, you're problem is the clutch. Check the adjustment of the clutch according to the service manual.

Shift Bicycle Gears


To shift gear properly, while riding the bike you be sure you are turning the paddles, and shift the gear.
Try to avoid shifting gears while riding standing up, this stress the gear system.
