There is usually a very small set screw (2-3mm Allen both) that holds the shifter in position on the handle bar. This probably needs to be tightened a little.

SOURCE: GRIP SHIFTERS WILL NOT TWIST WHILE TRYING TO SHIFT

This is likely because either a) the cable leading from the shifter to the part you are pulling is seized or b) the shifter itself is seized or c) both are seized. You would have to undo the cable from the rear deraileur, pull the inside cable out from the casing from top to bottom. Check it and see if it is rusted or full of crud. Give it a cleaning and spray some light lube down the outer (black) cables, then reinsert the cable. While the cable is undone, it wouldn't hurt to see if you can twist the grip shifters. If they are still tight, then get some lube in the grip shift. Also make sure the rubber grips are not too tight against the shifter. Hope that helps...

Grip shift 30 will not hold


Either gear cable is too tight or shifter is worn. Has cable been recently adjusted? if so, it needs to be readjusted. More likely, the shifter is worn so that the cogs aren't grabbing the tooth for high gear. It may just need to be cleaned or replaced. A good how-to website is "sheltonbrown.com".

When changing gear it returns to sixth gear , (twist grip gears) 6 gear 20in boys bike


If you're saying the shifter itself isn't staying in the selected position and is always relaxing ALL cable tension, you have a defective shifter. Some, like the Grip Shift MRX, seem to rely on the handlebar grip to keep all the guts inside. I know of one where a space developed when the grip slipped outboard a little bit and the shifter parts separated enough for a key piece to fall out.

No one sells the nickel part so you'll probably end up replacing the whole shifter. You may even have to buy a complete set. If you have to go that far and it IS a defective design I'd get a Shimano shifter that works with 6-speeds. Like Revo. Look on eBay.

OR, maybe the cable is just really loose.

This resource is very useful...

How do I fix the grip shift ? The piece that you turn to shift gears will not click into place. It slides back to first gear.


on the top of your grip shift there will be a slot for your shifter cable to connect. there should be a bolt there as a tensioner as well as on shifter itself. these may have to be tightened because it sounds as if they are loose.

Shifter slips from park to reverse


The bushing at the shift linkage is worn out causing it losing grips on it set position. It is outside of the transmission. Replace it then it won't slip any more.

I have an older Huffy, with grip shifters. The shifter (left hand) is almost impossible to shift the chain from the small sprocket to the middle or largest sprocket. The deraileur seams to be moving freely...


First, try to isolate the trouble like you have... obviously the derailieur is moviong freely. Next, I would disconnect the shifter cable from the derailieur (make sure to mark previous position of cable) Next, shift the left hand grip to see if the grip moves freely, you've already replaced the cable, soooooo, disassemble the grip and grease or replace the grip shift unit...hope this helps

Grip shifter slipping


It sounds like the catch mechanism inside the shifter may be broken. I found a video that does a 'how-to' to give you an idea of the internals of these types of shifters (may not be exacly like yours). If your shifter does not click and hold each of the 3 speeds, this is likely the problem. Sometimes this can be repaired or you may have to replace the shifter. its best to call your local bike shop and see if they carry parts for your shifter. Make sure you have the make and model noted - or just bring the bike down.
