Hi there guys, i have a 12 speed nikishi custom sport. i recently changed the shifter cables, but now i am not able to get it back down to the highest gear/smallest sprocket on back tire assemply (sorry if i have it around, but in new, hope you guys understand what i mean)
what is the proper method of installing new cables, i searched on line but i cant get a definite answer

You have too much cable tension.
Loosen the clamp screw, turn the cranks so the chain goes to the smallest cog.
Then pull the slack out of the cable and tighten the clamp.
