Question about Cycling

Open Question

I bought my daughter a power climber model# 8575-83F 2008.06.09 She will not ride it because the shifter levers are really hard to turn even when riding. I can hardly turn them myself. How can I fix them? They have been this way since we bought the bike. Thanks Pam

SOURCE: recent problem

I have just accquired the same bike in showroom condition (less than 150km) Since it has been kept in a display showroom for 9 years, the lubricants and some parts are expired ( although they still look brand new) . I´ll be ordering replacement parts, apart from getting new tires, I have decided to up grade the air & oil filters to K&N,put in a Yoshimura RS3 Can for that extra touch . You saying I should go for O.E. and not risk engine recalibration? I do know that the Carbs on these bikes are tricky... Can you advise me on your tire size too? I´m thinking of going 1 size wider in the front 130/65. Or is the original size good enuf.

SOURCE: When i pedle hard the bike changes gears by it's self.

The cable needs to be adjusted as well as the liit screws. Bring it to a local bike shop and have them give the bike a complete look over. Once one thing is malfunctioning then more issues are close behind.

Check the engine mounts to the frame. these are isolated by rubber and you may have broken one gettin' on it at the light.

Have you bled your brakes. what it sounds like you have air in your brakes and also low. do you have a leak coming from your disk brakes? Does the tubing seem oily? if so you might want to consider changing your tubing as there may be a leak.

SOURCE: Engine cutting out whilst riding along

Hi
If all the electrics go off then :-
A) Check tightness of battery terminals & condition of battery
B) Check for dodgy fuse or dirty connections
C) Check voltage across battery terminals when engine running - should be at least 12.5v rising with increasing revs to 15v max - if not then suspect the regulator/rectifier unit or the wiring from it to battery

I hope this helps, if so please mark as helpful.
Positive comments always appreciated

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Clutch dragging slightly.
2. Primary chaincase overfilled with lubricant.
3. Corners wore off shifter clutch dogs.
4. Shifter return spring bent or broken.
5. Bent shifter rod.
6. A loose shift lever on shifter shaft.
7. Shifter forks sprung.
8. Shifter pawl needs adjusting.
9. Heel/toe shifter coming in contact with the floorboard.
10. Transmission oil too heavy.

Shift lever won't go to park and moves stiff even while pushing on metal lever on the side of the transmission


The first thing i would do is to disconnect the cable at the lever on the ******, next move the lever at the ****** by hand and it should move by hand with little force. if the lever is hard to move then you may have a trany shift rod problem. next with cable removed try to go through the gears with the shifter , the shifter should flow with ease if its hard to move then its the shifter cable or the shifter itself. to find out which one you will need to disconnect cable at sifter and then move the shifter to see if its still tight. if the shifter is tight to move with cable removed then its the shifter but if it moves with ease then you have a bad cable. good day.

The shifter locks and it is hard to get it out of gear


check your brake light switch. If it is loose or broken the shifter interlock will not disengage; as the power to the solenoid goes through the brake light switch. Otherwise it is a problem with the the brake light fuse, switch or shifter lock solenoid.

Overriding the system:

On the riight side of the shift lever. There is a small round plastic cover. (The left side of the shift lever is P, the right side of the shift lever is a small round plastic cover about half inch.) Pop out the plastic cover, push the lever on the handle and insert a long philips screwdriver in it. It should shift now even if the engine is off. ( You do not need to turn the screwdriver, just insert it)

Do not have problem I have bought a pre loved bike and would just like to get a manual so my daughter knows how to work the gears correctly


If you go to my tips and tricks page there is a link to generic bike manuals for bikes with gears and without. These will provide all the basic instruction.

After that any bike shop will be happy to show your daughter how to work the shifters and brakes of her bike properly, and maybe even give some other useful tips like how to oil the chain or pump up the tires so she is riding safe.

Left bar end shifter does not hold on big chain wheel. The shifter turns down during riding.


You may just have too much cable stretch. Try this out: shift to the small chain ring and release the shifter cable at the derailleur. Pull the cable really tight and reattach it.

i hope this helps

I have a John Deere Ride on Toy stuck in reverse


Are the actual shifter levers not engaging or are the switches not clicking?
These Peg Perego Parts are available at http://www.shopjandl.com/, but I would check to make sure if it is the switches specifically or the levers under the shifter.
It is simple to check the shifter by taking the 2 screws out that hold the shifter in.
Hope this helps.
Let me know what you find.
