Spray some wd40 into the cable untill you see it dripping out the other end then attatch a pair of vice grips to the tail end and losen the cable nut on the derailer then pull tight with vice grips and tighten cable nut.

How to keep my gears from slipping


Firstly ensure the derailleur is in good condition and not bent so the chain is running perfectly in line with the sprockets. Ensure the stop screws limiting the extent of the travel of the derailleur are set correctly to prevent travel beyond the first and last sprocket.

A badly worn chain could need shortening or replacing in order to provide the correct chain tension or a loose chain could be a matter of a derailleur that hasn't seen the oil can for a while and is not tensioning the chain correctly.
If the bike has been involved in an accident the rear forks could perhaps need some adjustment so a straight edge laid alongside the main chain-wheel coincides approximately with the middle of the rear sprocket cluster.

At this stage it is also wise to ensure the gear cable is in A1 condition, smooth operating and properly oiled with no internal frayed strands causing problems.

If your gear selectors are of the modern style with detents the gear cable needs adjusting so the centre of each detent at the gear selector positions the derailleur precisely below the selected sprocket. Once this is done if everything else mentioned above is ok the gears should now operate smoothly and positively.

If adjustment doesn't work then the problem is likely to be with the basic requirements above.
Good luck!

Release your gear selector cables; position your chain on the 1st.or lowest gear
for both the derailer and, pedal gears.
Adjust your cables tighten and, test (some bikes use the highest gear to adjust from.

Clutch not letting engagement of gears, clutch pedal is soft.


hi first thing to try is to adjust the clutch pedal cable up that is done at the gearbox side by adjusting the 10mm nut on the end of the cable, if after you have done this you can then select gears you will most probably need to replace clutch due to wear.if you cant select any gears even after adjusting the cable then it sound like you have a problem with the selector rod a common fault is for the bushes to wear and knock the selector out of line, check for excessive play in selector rod rubber bush.

How do i adjust the tension on the cables which control the triple chainring [ shimano 515 ]gearing and the rear gearing? presumably there will be other adjustements to make after this is done.


The tension on a derailleur cable is determined by a spring in the derailleur itself, and is generally not adjustable. The available adjustments on the derailleur control the limits to it's travel (and in the case of the rear deraileur, the chain tension). The shift levers that you operate to change gears generally have an adjustable resistance (to keep them from sliding into another position), but this has zero effect on the tension on the cables. If you have indexing shifters there are additional adjustments. If your cables are going slack it might seem that the spring in the derailleur is too weak, but this is a lubrication issue, or you may need to replace your cables. There is a good article on derailleur adjustments at - http://www.parktool.com/repair/readhowto.asp?id=64 Good luck

All the gear indicators PRN321 on th dash of my 87 Tornado are flashing, what gives?


The gear selector switch is either out of adjustment or it is bad. Loosen the two bolts holding the gear selector in place and turn it slightly to see if the display stops flashing. You will have to manually shift the transmission lever at the switch into neutral, and then turn the switch until the display says neutral. Tighten the bolts and then check all gears. It's also possible the shift cable could also be out of adjustment. Does the display change if you simply wiggle the gear selector lever?

Hi there i am trying to set my gears up on my mountain bike any body help me as i carnt get any gears and i have just put a nwe cable on


It will be rather difficult to explain how to do this properly in text, but what I can do is give you a couple of pointers. The first thing you need to do is set the range by putting the deraleur to the highest gear (smallest sprocket) and checking the cable tension when your gear selector is also on the highest gear. The tension should be ever so slightly tensioned, but not sagging. First screw in the little cable thumb barrel adjuster(s) all the way in and then 1.5 turns out. Then adjust the cable as described above and secure. After you've done this, put it in first gear (biggest sprocket). It should go there with verve and confidence. If it does not, you need to tighten the cable some. (Do this at this point with the little thumb adjusters along the cable.) Try again. Go through the gears. The indexing should plop the gear to the next lowest accurately and without hesitation. If the chain clatters in any one gear, the indexing is off, and you have to loosen or tighten the cable. If you tighten and lose the ability to put in first gear and fifth gear yields a really loose cable, you went the wrong way. Instead then, loosen the cable one gear change's worth. Or... if you adjust the cable and it goes into first but you lose the ability to access the highest gear, the cable is too tight and you went the wrong way. Loosen it one gear's worth. Now at this point, you will just be diddling with it until the shifting becomes accurate. Be patient and hone it in to the best performance. (I assume you lubed the cable before putting it in.) Hope this helps.
