In order to use a standard Shimano 7-speed shifter to change gear, you`ll need to press the main shifter with your finger while riding forwards, every time you`d like to change into a lower gear. You should press the other shifter (which tends to be a little smaller) with your finger to change into a higher gear.
While pedaling the bike, shift one cog larger by clicking the shifter lever. If the derailleur doesn`t move the chain into the next cog or hesitates, add one-quarter turn of cable tension (counterclockwise on the barrel adjuster) and try again until the derailleur easily shifts into the next cog.
Cable tension and limit setting

The most obvious and common causes for poor shifting are down to poor adjustment and the most common thing to go out of adjustment is cable tension. Indexed drivetrains rely on correct cable tension so that the shifters pull the derailleur to the intended spot.

Low Gear = Easy = Good for Climbing: The “low” gear on your bike is the smallest chain ring in the front and the largest cog on your cassette (rear gears). In this position, the pedaling will be the easiest and you`ll be able to pedal uphill with the smallest amount of resistance.
On average, a 7-speed bike can travel anywhere between 15 to 30 miles per hour. Of course, this also greatly depends on how experienced the rider is. A beginner may not be able to go as fast as someone who has been riding for years. The best way to find out how fast your 7-speed bike can go is to take it for a spin!
The 7 speed will be good for rolling hills that are not too steep and long, if you are recovering from an accident or want a decent exercise going up hills, 7 speed will be great.
In a nutshell, adjust the front derailleur first, then the rear.
Fine-tune with the barrel adjuster, located where the cable housing enters the rear derailleur. For the best performance, position the guide pulley roughly 6 to 7mm away from the cogs. If your chain skips when you shift to a lower gear, give the barrel adjuster a half-turn counterclockwise.

I have a 2004 60 hp yamaha 2 stroke outboard engine that doesn’t start or run well. Once warm and in the water it will idle in nuetral and also in gear. It accelerates in neutral but will die or lack power if I increase throttle while in gear. Engine will somtimes get to top speed but often while running at top speed engine will start to slow rapidly. Engine has full range of operationout when out of the water where there is no load on engine but is still difficult to cold start. Before these recent problems the engine sat up for several months and I had to change the impeller and spark plugs. Spark plugs fire, cylinders have proper pressure of 100, 100, and 110. I cleaned some fuel lines and filters and got new gas.
ANSWER : Every sympton you are describing here can be attributed to fuel starvation due to blocked jets and or water in carbs, when your engine dies does it die with dry plugs, or wet oily ones?

Machine will stop adjusting resistance. On start up the machine will usually work. I can go through the calibration procedure and it will calibrate and work normally for 4 or 5 resistance adjustments. It will then stop adjusting. It acts like there is a cable pulled and refuses to adjust, even though I am not getting the warning telling me to “Release cable”
I have modified the wiring harness so that the wires do not fall off from the stepper motor, so this is not the problem. If I shut the machine down and leave it for several minutes, it will come back and work normal again… for a while. I am wondering if there is a problem with the sensors that are detecting a cable pull? Is there a way to disable those sensors to see if that is the problem
ANSWER : I would think that your problem has possibly to do with a faulty power supply, component, see to my mind it is a thermal problem as it heats up,it goes faulty? The Voltage changes and it goes out of spec.. When left to cool, it then is OK… Usually, & from my experience this is a thermal problem. To see obtain some Freeze Spray, from radio Shack or similar,and spray components on the main power board, and others too, use it on any large heat sinked components and see if when you do this the fault clears. Then replace that component(s).

Or as you suggest the sensors that feed the inputs maybe with sensors though one has little option but to replace them and see if this clears the problem.

I have an 02 vulcan nomad 1500 fi w/ 28k miles and just recently changed the clutch spring due to gear slipping, worked great. After riding about a week and putting on at least 350 miles, on my way home from a friends it was suddenly very hard shifting up. Shifting gears down seemed ok but going back up was wierd, any thoughts out there? Are cables a suspect? The adjustment is on #1 as it has been since the day I got it.
ANSWER : Sure, cables always start stretching just before they snap, as one strand at time breaks and unravels.But is could also be a lack of oil in the transmission, friction material coming loose from previous slippage and binding, etc.You say the adjustment is ok, but how much freeplay does it have?

My transmission is stuck in reverse. The gear shift moves to neutral and back into reverse. When you put it to forward then the engine just dies out because the forward gear is competing with the reverse gear.
How do I fix this?
ANSWER : It sounds like the clutch has gone and needs to be replaced. This is a job for a mechanic.
