How exactly did I manage THAT?

Just got a mid cage of the above to replace a shagged x7, having many problems setting it up (x7 shifter) .

Anyone got any handy tips (that don't involved buying Shimano) for setting one of these buggers up?

The spring in the shifter sometimes buggered up with the X7 shifters I had whenever new gear cables were put through. I fixed it by taking it to bits cleaning the inside of the shifter and then putting it back together again with the cable already fitted inside. Its quite fiddly and springs/small screws can go missing so if you want to try it I can wholeheartedly recommend a clean tidy area to do it in!

Shifter's in good shape I'm afraid. It's just the actual set up I'm having problems with.

In terms of indexing or limits or what? have you done the b stop screw (the single screw that alters the angle of the paralellogram relative to the ground)? I find I need to have this much further out than the standard (so top jockey wheel clears the biggest sprocket on the cassette).

Basically I can't get it to index properly. So I'm getting maybe 7 out of 9 gears as the chain skips from 9-7 and then won't go back to 9 on the shift up.

It does sound similar to the problems I was having. Try playing with the b stop screw to see if it helps. It fixed my problems but I'm not really sure why!

Thanks Steve, that actually worked straight away. Still a little fine tuning to do but at least I get all 9 now.
