Shift your rear derail down to the smallest cog on the cassette. Loosen the nut that holds the cable onto the derail. If you are reusing the outer cables back the inner cable out to the shifter. If your replacing the outers also, note where they are installed. There should be an allen screw on the bottom of the shifter that will free up the shifter and expose the knob on the end of the cable. Pull out the old cable and install new in reverse. Insert the cable into the clamp on the derail. Pull the cable taught with pliers while tightening nut on clamp. Run through the gears while on middle ring on front. Turn barrel adjuster on derail in and out to dial in shifting. That should do it. Good luck and let me know if you have any problems.

How do I change my right shifter?


It depends on how mechanical of a person you are. In simplest terms we'd unscrew the old one and put in the new one. Calibrate and then ride. Without model number or any other specifics we can only give you a general response.

For my bike, I'd change gears to the smallest gear first. Then I'd locate the screw holding the whole thing in place along the underside... unscrew. Then unhook the shift cable from the shifter. Then unthread that cable through the bike frame until I get to the derailleur. Remove / loosen the screw that holds it in place. Put the new shifter in place. Hook the cable back in. Change shifter to position of the current gear and thread the cable back through the bike to the derailleur. Slip cable back into place and tighten. Calibrate and ride...

Do I have to buy new bikes to get higher range of gears?


Actually no! you can visit your bike shop and ask them for higher range. What they do is change the front wheel ring in order to give you higher range.

I have a Kawasaki kx20s 10 speed boys mountain bike that needs the rear brake cable replaced and both the front and rear derailer gear cables adjusted or possibly replaced. Is there a manual or diagram of...


1st The brakes: Once you have ran the cable through appropriate cable holders and to the brakes-you hold the brake calipers shut-remove excess slack from cable by pulling on it with pliers and back off a little before tightening the nut holding the cable(amount you have to back off tension depends on how strait your wheel is).
The Front Derailer doesn't usually have adjustment so you put the gear lever in top gear-loosen the nut holding the cable-push the derailer into the right position-remove slack from cable with pliers then tighten the nut.
The Rear Derailer: will need to be done the same way if your running a new cable..*But there is a screw on the derailer near the junction of the 2 parts that adjusts the position of the derailer- so you can do minor adjustments-**NOTE-there are 2 screws- 1 changes the position in or out and the other changes the angle**

Shifting problems


you could try squirting some lubrication inside the cable outers which run all the way down from the shifter on the handlebar to the rear mech. squirt a good ammount of lube into the outers and along the exposed cable. release the cable at the rear mech end and use your fingers to move the cable back and forth inside its housing to free it up. Re tension gear cable and realisgn the gears and re-try. failing that take it to a good bike shop for assessment.

To change gears, I need to fully press down on my clutch pedal to stop a grinding noise on my hyundai accent 2001Can I adjust the clutch cable,


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

In a manual 2001 Hyundai Accent, the clutch cable could be adjusted. The adjustment point is on the cable 'pad' where it enters the firewall in the engine compartment.

To adjust, the slack or free play must be decreased. This is done by turning the adjusting nut clockwise. Check back by pressing on the clutch pedal to your preference.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

The chain wants to jump off while trying to change gears


There are several things that could be wrong:

Shifter out of adjustment

Chain worn

Chain and gear(s) worn

Shifter out of adjustment:
Try adjusting the cable tension by turning the barrel (the part between the cable and the shifter). Count the number of turns and reset it to its original position if this doesn't solve it.

Chain worn:
Chains wear out. hold a ruler up to it, with one end centered on a pin. 12" away, another pin should like up very very very close to the 12" mark. If not, it's probably worn out and needs to be replaced. No way around it. Some say chains are good for 500 miles only. Your mileage may vary. (keep reading...)

Chain worn and gear(s) worn:
If the bike has been ridden witha worn chain for a while, it will make the gears in the back wear faster too, and a new chain alone will not work. If this is the case, you need a new chain and new gears in the back. Often, gears in the back are replaced all at once in a 'cassette'. You'll have to make sure your front gears aren't worn out too!
