I tried to rise my gear shift a bit but couldn't loosen the second lock nut at the rear of the bike. The front lock nut is loosen easily but then I have no anchor point to loosen the second one. There's no recess to secure the end node. Anyone has any luck?
If you are talking about the linkage rod, and I'm sure you are, do keep in mind one of the ends is backwards threaded. Often times a backwards threaded nut will have a line or a dash carved into its side.
We can pretend I'm smart enough to realize this before snapping the first one I played with, cant we?
Once you break it loose, just turn the rod whatever direction to raise and lower.
Would either of you have a picture that shows the angle where the gear lever attaches to the gear box shaft when it comes from the factory. I stupidly removed it before taking a picture or marking the angle and I liked where it was.
Hi the front lock nut, to loosen turn anti clock wise and the rear is clock wise so fundamental looking at the arm from the side of the bike to loose turn both lock nuts in the same direction there should be no need to hold the rod initially use a 10mm open end
Hope this helps
