Hey hope things are going well for everyone. Was on the bike when I went to downshift for a right turn but when I
went to push on the shift lever, all I pushed was air. I looked down to see the shift lever and shaft hanging on the gear shifting shaft which was still intact. It looks like the nut just musta vibrated off the end of the lever shaft as the lever shaft doesn't appear to be broken. I pushed it back in place and the bike shifted fine but of course it came out again. I'll know more when I take it apart but just wondering if anyone has installed one of these and how much do I have to take apart to put a nut back on the end of this thing?



thanks in advance!

I am going to assume that wasn't the thumbnail you wanted to post. I'm not to sure what nut, or shaft we are talking about. A picture of the assembly would be very helpful to better help you...

Turns out that rear lever shaft isn't much more than a stud mounted completely on the front sprocket cover. The inside threads CAN be reached from underneath without removing the cover- it's a pain but not THAT bad as long as it's possible to muster enough patience to get thru the operation by wrenching 1/8 turn at a time. All back together again.

Hoping the rest of the week and weekend are good!

Someone behind me at the drive-thru window beeped and flipped me off. Maybe an unwritten 30 second rule or something. Anyways, I felt bad paid for their food and pulled up to the next window and showed both receipts .
But then I changed my mind and figured "what the heck?" and took their food too. . .

Ok, that's funny! I can't believe I never thought of that! Glad you got your shifter sorted out.
