Old Shimano Mountain Bike shifter replacement

Old Shimano Mountain Bike shifter replacement

Installing a new Shimano model SL M310 7R shifter onto an older Diamond Back mountain bike. The bike had an older 200GS 7 speed group with the older rapid fire type shifter. Typically I’ll refurbish the shifter, but in this case, the bicycle owner wanted to replace the shifter with newer style replacement.

    Have you made a video of disassembly and reassembly of this specific shifter?

    I’m in the process of installing a 7 speed trigger shifter on my son’s bike to replace the twist one. Can I re-route the new cable back into the old cable housing or do I need to get new housing? Thanks for sharing the video.

    What model of this gear shifter?

    Sir, i have the same shifter, and likely to change that too. So I see that old rear derailluer doesnt have any effect to the new shifter as long match with same shifter speed right? (In this case 7 speed) Im afraid if I bought the item already and cannot be used. Thank You in advance.

    I have a mongoose remix 20 inch and the grub screw won’t turn I got the shifter cover off and the grip I just can’t shift with this black thing that stayed on. I don’t know how to get it off. What do you suggest doing?

    wow, okay well, I just purchased that Shimano Altus shifter. I didn’t know the gear indicator window went under the brake lever (my current one goes above the brake lever), also how the hell are you supposed to downshift do you reach in between the brake lever and handle bar to hit the downshift lever? If that’s how it operates then I’m definitely going to return it and get something else because that’s just stupid, with my current shifter you use your thumb to upshift and down shift and I like it that way.

  15. Jayden on December 17, 2022 at 1:16 am

    I found the same model, but it has 8 speeds. Would this still work for a 7 speed bike?



  16. GreenSlug420 on December 17, 2022 at 1:18 am

    Where is the rest of it. Putting the wire through?



  17. The GaMerCat on December 17, 2022 at 1:20 am

    Can i replace shifter without changing all the cables



  18. Jeffrey Culpepper on December 17, 2022 at 1:22 am

    Would have been a good video if you actually showed setting up the cable.



  19. Kamal on December 17, 2022 at 1:22 am

    Nice gear shifter ❤❤😍



  20. Sydney Lanigan on December 17, 2022 at 1:22 am

    I have a question… what should I do to fix my shimano shifter on my trek marlin 5. The gears shift, but the thing that shows what gear I am in is stuck under 1. What should I do



  21. Kulbir Singh on December 17, 2022 at 1:25 am

    Sir please reply how to use this shift



  22. Randy Bachmeier on December 17, 2022 at 1:25 am

    How come nobody shows how to thread the cable back to the derailleur? The shift lever comes with a bare cable. You don’t run the bare cable back to the derailleur, do you?



  23. Lit' AHSr. on December 17, 2022 at 1:31 am

    Oh my god man I was trying to clean it and then a very small spring popped of now i dont have a clue how to get it back together on believable now i have to buy a replacement sigh…



  24. Terry Allard on December 17, 2022 at 1:34 am

    Ditto what Randy Bachmeier said. That’s why I watched it. Finish the job kids. Otherwise it’s clickbait bs.



  25. Ron Bradshaw on December 17, 2022 at 1:35 am
