This problem is best taken into a bicycle shop to have them look at it. Could be as simple as adjusting the cable tension, or as complicated as parts not in the correct location or functioning properly. The shop will be able to make a quick diagnosis once they can actually put hands to it.

Can I replace a Shimano RD-TY15 with Shimano Tourney TX?


Main thing with gears is that they have the same number of gears, and that the cage is the same length. Also the RD TY15 has a built in hanger.

The Tourney pictured has a built in hanger (below link) just make sure the replacement does.

Can I replace a Shimano RD-TY15 with a Shimano Tourney TX?


This may be to do with the replacement having a shorter cage, so it can't go on the big sprocket and big chain ring at the same time.

Try to not use the big rear sproket and the the big front chaining at at the same time,

Take a look at the diagram in this link, see the two screws identified as Number 3. http://techdocs.shimano.com/media/techdocs/content/cycle/EV/bikecomponents/RD/EV-RD-TX31-2753B_v1_m56577569830637983.pdf
You need to adjust both screws, since one adjusts how far in the derailer goes, and the other adjusts how far out it goes. Start with the bike in a mid-gear and turn one of them 1/4 turn. Check the result. Proceed by trial and error. Good luck. If you found this helpful, please vote. Al K

There are two screws that limit how far the derailer travels in both directions. Yours is apparently traveling to far out, and not far enough in. See the diagram at the link below. The two screws are identified by number 3. You will need to adjust both of them. With the chain on an intermediate gear, try turning one of them them 1/4 turn, then check the result. You'll soon get it right. Good luck. If you found this useful, please vote

I just got a new bike for my birthday. It is a mongoose vanish with the shimano tourney sis index. The high gear and the low gears work fine when riding, but all the others jump up a gear when riding. ...


Your bike needs to have the derailers adjuster. If It was bought at a bike shop, take it back and have them adjust it. If it was bought at Wal-Mart, Fred Meyers, or any other chain store, don't waste your time going back, they don't support what they sell. Find a local bike shop and have them do the adjustments AND have them show you how to do it your self. Yes, it will cost money to do this. You could go online to shimano's web site and find the directions on adjusting the derailers, but if you do that and make the problem worse, you will find yourself at the bike shop having them take care of it. I would start at the bike shop, they may offer a free class on bike maintenance as well.

Turbo R-24 Model Empire 24 Inch Men&s Bike how many if any gears does it have shows to have ◦Shifters: Shimano tourney index but what does this mean. Sears can't answer


Count the number of sprockets you have up front, then count the number you have in the rear, Multiply, 3 x 6 = 18 speeds. 3 up front, 6 in the rear, or 2 up front, 5 in the rear, 10 speed. Etc, they go as high as 21. You might only have one in the front.
To shift, you have to be peddling, get the bike going, put the chain on the middle or the biggest sprocket in the front, move the left thumb shifter to do this, do not let the chain rattle, make it a clean shift and don't let it klik or rub. Then put the chain on the biggest one in the rear , without any rubbing, chattering, slipping, etc,with the right shifter, now you are ready to take off easily, when you get going and the pedals get too easy and go faster, shift the rear to the next sprocket down, then again, then when you are coming to a stop, down shift the rear sprocket back to the biggest gear and you will be ready to take off again easily. A few tries, you will shifting like mario andretti. Hope this helps.

I have a shimano tourney deraileur with sis index. what does the small adjustable screw which is off by itself adjust. the other two screws are for the upper and lower gear stops.


Is it a long screw running into the derailleur hanger? This sets the distance from the cassette to the jockey wheel. You use it to pull the jockey wheel away from the large cassette cog if the chain is having trouble clearing it. You'll know if it is happening because the bike will be making more noise in the low gear and it will sometimes want to skip out of gear.

Shimano Tourney rear derailleur is stuck on smallest gear and will not shift. How do I adjust the tension correctly?


There are several things that could be wrong. You could have thrown your chain (you couldn't ride at all if so). The bike could have been crashed and the derailleur bent. The cable might have slipped where it bolts to the derailleur. Or the cable or shifter could need maintenance, too. It is most likely one of the above. If it is only the adjustment, there are two stop screws on the derailleur that can be adjusted.

My best advice for you is to either find a bicycle repair manual at a local bookstore or your library that can show you some of the detail. Or just let your local bike shop do the repair.
