Need to adjust speed Need to SLOW it down


Sounds like the carb needs to be adjusted. There are two set screws on the carb. One adjusts the low end and the other does the high end. I think you will have the best luck with those to achieve what you are looking for.

I JUST BOUGHT A SUNRACE M2T REAR DERAILER ( THE ONE THAT DOES NOT HAVE A HANGER, IT JUST BOLTS ON ). IT DIDN'T COME WITH AN INSTALLATION GUIDE. COULD YOU PLEASE TELL ME WHERE I CAN GET SOME...


I can't find a manual, but the install is pretty basic. You need to bolt it to the frame, then remove one of the sprockets on the derailleur to get the chain through, then replace. Attach the cable through the locking nut, using the lowest gear first, then run it to the highest gear to make sure it runs through them all. There are some set screws to set so that the derailleur doesn't go past the upper/lower gears. It's all a matter of adjustment from there.
Hope this is of help

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.

As I shift the large gears I can't get into the mountain gear , it needs some adjustments and I don't know just how to do that. Chris


both the foot and wheel gear have two adj screws. turn bic upside down put gear in lowest setting turn wheel with foot peddle.adj front gear so outside gear or the side on the frame is bar-ly going to touch lever.do the same with rear wheel then move level to highest setting.and do the same this time the out side should bar-ly be touching the chain.after a few adj the gear should shift without any binning.

I have a 2008 Kia optima that I need to find out how to adjust the headlights, they are aimed too low to the ground, can't see at night


look on dashboard for a switch with headlamp symbol on it possibly arrows on it too,and it will have 3 or 4 settings on the switch 1 being the highest setting and the lowest setting being the lowest number. if set to 1 and still too low the open bonnet and look for adjusting scres on backs of headlamp or on top of headlamp usually hexagon drive or posi drive some even have little thumbwheels on for easy adjustment. take care though one screw alters vertical movement and the other adjusts left / right aim

My shimno sora front derailler shifts perfectly to the small and large chain set cogs, but on the middle, the chain rubs along the cage.


Set the rear derailleur to the lowest gear (big cog) and the front to the lowest gear (small chain ring). Disconnect the derailleur cable. Screw in the adjuster for the cable tension all the way (this adjuster is on the shifter of a mountain bike or the down tube of a road bike). Pedal to make sure the chain is not rubbing on the derailleur cage. If it is, adjust the "L" setting on the derailleur until the chain moves by without touching the cage. Now pull taut and reattch the cable and shift the front to the big ring while pedaling. If it does not shift up well or completely, hold the shifter past its normal shift and adjust the "H" screw so that the derailleur allows the shift. Shift into the highest cassette gear and keep pedaling. The chain should not be touching the front derailleur's cage when you pedal. Adjust with the barrel adjuster until the chain moves freely without touching the derailleur cage.

i hope this helps

Problem with chain and gears


Wash, degrease and scrub the chain and derailleurs with a good degreaser (like Simple Green). Dry the chain and relubricate it with an appropriate bike chain lubricant (not oil or WD-40). Shift the derailleurs to the smallest chain ring and cog on the cassette (low front gear, high rear gear) and then loosen the cable at the derailleurs, pull the cables taut and reattach them. If the derailleurs still need adjustment, here is a procedure for it:
Flip the bike over (so you can pedal the bike manually while you shift) and shift the front to the middle chain ring. Shift the rear to the highest gear (small cog). Release the cable from the pinch bolt on the derailleur. Adjust the screw marked "H" on the derailleur until the jockey wheel on the derailleur is aligned perfectly over the small cassette cog. Set the cable adjuster on the derailleur to the middle of its range (find this by screwing it all the way in and then count how many revolutions it makes until it screws out completely. Screw it back in one half of the total revolutions). Reattach the cable and shift to the lowest gear (the biggest cog). Over-shift and hold on the shifter, then adjust the "L" screw on the derailleur until the jockey wheel sits just past the last cog. You have to hold the shifter to do this. Now shift into the middle gear (or one of the two middle gears if the bike has an even number of gears) and adjust the derailleur using the barrel adjuster you previously set to the middle of its range. Adjust it so that the derailleur is sitting perfectly over the appropriate gear. Shift up and down the cassette while pedaling and in every gear, reverse pedal (freewheel) to make sure the chain does not hop. Adjust as necessary until all gears are smooth.
Now the front:
Set the rear derailleur to the lowest gear (big cog) and the front to the lowest gear (small chain ring). Disconnect the derailleur cable. Screw in the adjuster for the cable tension all the way (this adjuster is on the shifter of a mountain bike or the down tube of a road bike). Pedal to make sure the chain is not rubbing on the derailleur cage. If it is, adjust the "L" setting on the derailleur until the chain moves by without touching the cage. Now pull taut and reattch the cable and shift the front to the big ring while pedaling. If it does not shift up well or completely, hold the shifter past its normal shift and adjust the "H" screw so that the derailleur allows the shift. Shift into the highest cassette gear and keep pedaling. The chain should not be touching the front derailleur's cage when you pedal. Adjust with the barrel adjuster until the chain moves freely without touching the derailleur cage.
That should be it, unless there is another mechanical problem causing the missed shifts, like a bent derailleur hanger or damaged teeth on the cassette cogs or a bad derailleur. If it is still problematic, come back for further information.

i hope this helps

What is the adjustment procedure on a shimano deor front derailleur. it will not shift into high gear.


Try this first:
Shift into the small ring and release the cable. Pull it tight (with pliers) and re-tighten the cable. It should shift now. If it doesn't, the solution is a little time consuming, so i apologize in advance.
First, flip your bike onto the bars and saddle. Now shift into the small chainring and your lowest cassette cog (the largest in number of teeth). Release the cable from the front derailleur and set the adjustment knob for the front derailleur to its center point. You should find it on your shifter. Now adjust the "L" setting on the derailleur while turning the crank so that its stop sets it in a position where it just skims the chain but does not touch it. Now pull the cable taut and re-clamp the cable. Shift into the middle ring and shift the rear derailleur to its highest and lowest gears, making sure the chain does not rub the front derailleur. If it does rub (it will be in either the lowest or highest cog on the cassette), adjust the front derailleur by way of the adjustment knob to clear the rub. Then shift into the big ring and you should have no problem. Set the "H" stop if necessary.

Chain rubs inner front derailleur while in lowest gear.


on front derailleurs there should be two small cross head screws one has L(lower) next to it the other has H(higher), you will need a cross head srewdriver, you simply losten or tighten the 2 screws and it will adjust the position of the derailleur to your crankset and it that completely fails then you might need to try a different crankset
