I searched the board before posting this but couldn't find any threads that helped me.
I've always worked on thumb shifters and Rapidfire Plus shifters, but never Gripshift. I always assumed it would be quite simple.
Today I decided to fix my father's bike up a little with a new headset and all new cables, and of course he has Gripshift. The front derailleur was no problem, but I am having a lot of difficulty with the rear. I route the cable through the shifter in what appears to be the proper way (around the groove?) but when I try shifting it will jump 3 to 4 cogs with every click. I thought I may have had the cable too tight but loosening it did not change anything. Just for giggles I tried tightening it more, yet nothing changed then either. I noticed the front shifter appears to route the cable a little differently than the rear, but I assumed this was simply because the rear has more gears and has to pull more cable in smaller increments. I swear, I can take apart a Rapidfire shifter and put it back together, but I can't get Gripshift to work. lol I figure I'm probably missing something really obvious, so if anyone can point me in the right direction I would be most appreciative. Thank you!
