Shift lever not returning to "middle" position after shifting
« on: 11 September, 2018, 11:16:28 AM »
 Hi Guys,

 I haven't used my bike for 2 months, and now when i shift the gear, shifting lever stucks in the shifted position. In order to return it to middle position, i have to push a little bit. Did anyone have that problem before ? How can i fix it ?

Try greasing the linkages

PROBLEM SOLVED

 Thank you for your advice Alan. I just removed the gearshift pedal and greased up the hole and the bolt. It worked and hope this info will be useful for someone else.

I'm glad that worked. My wife had that issue on her bike a few years ago, which is why I knew it.
