Had to replace cable on grip shifters on a Huffy

I took them off to replace the cables that were either frayed or broke completely. When I took the shifters apart the ratchet clip and the exact pattern of how the thing goes back together is now a mystery.
Can anyone out there tell me how to get them back together?
Diagrams would be a big help...
This is all that is left to get it back on the road again...
Thanks in advance.

I have a 99 Kawasaki Vulcan 800 the throttle is beyond hard to twist and give gas I lubricated the the cab?Ex after taking g it apart at grips but no prevail can anyone help me with this problem?

When you disconnect the throttle cable from the hand grip control can you move it freely? If not then the cable is either broken inside or something has jammed it inside the sleeve preventing it from moving. If so I would replace the throttle cable.

If the cable moves fine when not connected to the grip then you installed it wrong somehow. Take it all apart and reinstall.

Cleaning shifter cable

this is best fixed by replacing the cable as it is most likely frayed internally and jamming in the case.

I have a broken derailer cable on an old huffy backwater bike where can I get a new one?

You can buy one from most neighbourhood bike repair shops. This should be a pretty standard item for them.

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...

1995 xjr400 throttle sticks open and will slowly close on its own if allowed. already loosened bar end and replaced grips but not any better. any ideas?

they can stick in a number of places.
You may need to dissassemble the hand throttle assembly
Make sure the plastic twist grip turns freely on the handle bar.
Check the new grip doesnt push against the throttle switch assembly.
Check the cables move freely
Check the cables dont have any frayed ends
check the cables arnt missing any of the plastic outer cover
check the cables a routed correctly and dont get jammed or pulled turning lock to lock

I would like to replace the shifter cables on my ultegra flight deck shifters how do i go about this

You will need to purchase new cables obviously, but I would strongly advise that you purchase them as part of a set that includes the outer housing. That way you'll be sure your shifting is smooth and trouble free. You will need to loosen the pinch bolts at both derailleurs and pull the cable loose. Then you can pull them free at the shifter....I'd recommend going to the shimano website or sheldon brown to see illustrations on exactly how to do this. You then replace the cable housings (don't forget to inject some lube into the them) and then rethread the cable. You will also need a cable cutting tool (don't use anything else as the cables will fray) and some cable caps. Tighten the pinch bolt at the derailleurs, adjust the shifting and your done.

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

Mazda 6 shifter cables broken

I had this same issue last week with my 2005 Mazda 6 Manual.... I feel your pain. About $275 for the new Cable and another 300 to install it.

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...
