Default XT RD Shadow Plus problem

Just noticed last night, after a night ride at Clarkfield Pampanga, that my XT RD shadow plus is having issues when, in Switch ON mode, as I shift for higher gears that the RD's cage sometimes doesn't engage in as its supposed to be causing the chain to slap or bounce (bagsak chain sa frame)... :(

Tad frustrated on this, baka yung mga bikers natin na may switch sa RD nila could help me out....

Thanks...

i think pwede mo sir iopen yung cover ng switch and try to adjust it. baka wala lang din sa tono? I was able to test mine last sunday, so far, wala naman chain slap nung naka on siya, sakto lang din ang shifting niya.

Thanks Sir Sithruz....

Ewan ko ba, maingat naman ako sa paggamit ng bike, then biglang, naglolo ko yung RD... Sana nga pwede pang maayos to, to think it's only barely 2 months old :(

might be possible your derailleur hanger is also bent kaya nawala sa tono

Guys, finally, was able to solve this problem through th[e help of Bikeworx, the shop that I go to here in Angeles City...

When the bike mechanic opened the cover of the clutch (switch) of the RD, it turned out yung tuibg na pumasok sa loob ng clutch cover, nangalawang, at ito marahil yung dahilang kung bakit nagloko yung pag play ng cage ng RD ko...

Lesson learned, after washing your bike from the rigorous trails, bugahan na ng hangin yan para matuyo at walang tubig ang tatagal sa mga looban ng sensitive components ng bike...

Baka in my case, I'll just cover the clutch with plastic, kakatakot masiraan uli...

Thank you sa tulong mga kapatid na nagpost dito sa thread, I appreciate the much help you all suggested...

Thank you for sharing. Now I have to check mine (XTR), masipag rin ako mag bike wash basta naputikan, sa loob ng bahay kasi naka park.

Always keep a can of WD-40

I always spray it on the moving metal parts of the bike after washing and wipeout the excess (Making sure not to spray anything towards the braking parts) lalo na at malakas magdumi ng drivetrain ang mga trails sa Clark... :D

Keep some alcohol nearby para madali mapunasan kung maoverprayan ang brakes.

Grabe mga Sirs,

Oks nga ang bagong tecchnology ng mga RD's ngayon, rumor has it pati 2013 Deore ata lalagyan narin ng switch, pero additional part to maintain...

Kahapon nagbike wash ako, I covered the whole switch/cover, natatakot akong malooban uli ng tubig...

you mean 2014 deore sir? i think 2013 yung 10 speed na deore right now. eventually, mapapasa ata talaga sa deore ang technology.

introduce sa xtr tapos ipapasa sa xt tapos sa slx tapos sa deore hehe, baka next year, naka ice tech na rin ang deore hehe

With the XT and SLX having that switch is really a big plus... Sana pati yung Deore magkaroon na rin, kaso, the variants would lose a bit, IMHO, their value kapag konti nalang yung difference nila...

Buti nalang di ko binenta yung Deore RD ko, just in case na sumawa ako dito sa may switch...

As prevention for this problem, I took the cover off the clutch mechanism, then applied a small amount of clear silicone sealant - the one used to seal glass and aluminum display cases, aquariums, etc. - along the edge, replaced cover and allowed the sealant to dry overnight before using the bike. Haven't had a problem with my SLX Shadow Plus being filled with water since. Pero dapat din i-check from time to time and re-apply sealant, just to be sure.

Hope this helps!

sabi nga nila more technology more complications hehehe eto na siguro natanim sa isip ko kaya hanggang ngayon di pa din ako maka-move on at mega9 pa din gamit ko...

anyway recommendation ng mga aggressive AM friends natin dapat i-on mo lang sya during DH yung baga no shifting is required (best practice lang po ito).... since yun ang primary function nya... dinevelop lang sya na useable din during shifting incase makalimutan mo i-off or may biglaang ahon after the DH.... pero hindi recommended na lagi syang naka-on to prolong the life of your RD

Up ko uli to....

Thanks sa inputs mga Papabols...

Sir Gamol, thanks for the info...

Sir Sukangpaombong, masubukan ko nga yung ginawa mo... Pero, still, the clutch needs to be opened and cleaned after extensive rides...

Sir Sithruz, yup Shadow din yung Deore, I think next year may switch na rin yan...

Sir Juandelacruz, pareho tayo ng style sa bike care... ;)

I've been using xtr shadow plus for more than a year now, nailublob ko na din sa baha, at nabubugahan most of the time ng tubig pag naglilinis, pero hindi naman pinasok ng tubig, may seal yung cover, see pics from tech tuesday http://www.pinkbike.com/news/Tech-Tu...o-Adjust-.html, not sure kung ganyan din sa xt/slx :D
