SOURCE: How to dismantle and re-assemble the lever

Here's the diagram:http://fish.shimano-eu.com/media/techdocs/content/cycle/EV/bikecomponents/ST/EV-ST-T400-S-1970_v1_m56577569830613258.pdf The lube in them tends to dry out and harden over time and needs to be flushed out with whatever is safe for the parts (cleaner/degreaser) and then relubed with some high quality lubricant. The spray stuff doesn't stay around long enough. Ask your local bike tech what he uses.I used saxophone key oil.

Shimano's site doesn't show an MR486. Perhaps YOU could find something that matches your levers.

You can't make up for air or low oil in a hydraulic system by just tweaking the lever.

SOURCE: Shimano Derailer 200GS needs adjusting

There is a barrel adjuster on the derailer, right where the cable comes in.

If you are having trouble getting to the easier gears then you need to tighten (usual problem -cable stretches). Pull out the barrel adjuster and unscrew it (turn CCW). Do this gradually until you get the shifting you want.

There are also two little adjusting screws on the face of the derailer that limit the travel of the derailer(keep it from jumping off the cogs, into the spokes or outside it). It is good to check these while you are working on it. The upper one is usually for the easiest gears, screw it in until you can no longer shift to the easiest, then unscrew it just a bit so that you can get in gear, but so the erailer can never go too far). If nothing happened, it is the other screw, so tighten that one.

Now do the other screw, tighten it until you can no longer shift to the smallest cog , then unscrew a bit, making sure you can shift to the smallest cog.

Hope that helps

This is from a different model but it's old school, too, so it probably applies to yours.

"The Shimano 200GS is held to the bar with a hidden screw like old ten-speed brake levers. Remove the cable. Squeeze the brake lever. Look for the head of a screw or bolt in the gap exposed by the open lever/perch."

Exploded view of parts diagram for shimano tourney st-ef40 shifters for re-assembly?


If you can't find with a search for st-ef40 diagram or on the Shimano site then it does not exist. Although not identical carefully disassembling the other shifter may give you enough insight.

Shimano 7970 di2 trouble shooting


Disconnect brake cable at brake. Check operation without any cable resistance. If its OK, remove cable from brake lever end. Check lever operation without resistance. Use a bit of sewing machine or light oil to lubricate lever pivot, cable. If no problem found reinstall in opposite order.

Hi! is there any replacement for shimano ST-3300, 8 speed, right hand STI lever?? many thanks


There's a used pair on an eBay auction right now ending 6d 09h (Sep 21, 201101:52:54 PDT) that you might be able to snag for cheaper than a separate right lever. Wait til the last 10 seconds and bid ONCE. Leave time to confrm the bid.

There are other models, too.

My $.02: I'd take the opportunity to switch to Campi Ergo (also available on eBay). The brake lever is ONLY a brake lever so you don't have to tip toe around it when shifting and ALL CABLES are hidden.

Shimano 200GS STI, upshift lever moves freely but when released, it returns the derailluer back to the lowest gear. How do you take the shifter apart?


"Upshift lever" could be either one since they both shift up or down.

I'd make sure it's a lever problem before embarking on that project. Is the cable actually being controlled by the lever?

A simple web search for "Shimano 200GS STI assembly" yields all kinds of resources.

Another good start would be http://www.shimano.com/

Other web searches like "how to.." work, too.

Need advice for Shimano ST-7900 nameplate replacement


Don't know if you have an exploded view diagram of the levers . If not you can download from http://techdocs.shimano.com/techdocs/index.jsp

In the road bike drop down list select Dura-Ace, go down to ST-7900 and select document EV-ST-7900-2874. I don't advise you to take mech apart unless you have special tools and bags of experience handling complex mechs. However you will see that name plates are held by single screw which should be no problem.

The housing of my brakes on the handle bars is loose and keeps moving. how do i tighten it so that it stops moving when i apply pressure on it and/or squeeze the brake lever??


If the screw is all the way tight and still slipping ... try to find a fatter part of the handle bar to mount the grip to. You will probably will not find any such that is convenient for you to continue to use the brake ... remove the grip, wrap some electrical tape around the handle bar, reattach the grip. Tighten it and give it a try.

I hope this works for you

Shimano Deore LX right hand rear shifter


HERE is Shimano's exploded-view diagram of the shifters, but it really only gives you a ballpark idea of the assembly. You will have to piece the rest together from memory, i suppose. Sorry, i could not find more information for you.

Hope this helps a little,
