The fork is off a Carrera Quattro Comp if you wanted to look out for one??

Not sure why you are having indexing problems. I use an identical set up on at least two bikes and have no problems in shifting. The hidden click is very noticeable and shouldnt slip, in fact the shifting should be like a gunshot on a quiet day.


*EDIT:

Looking at the mech, your top jockey wheel may not have the 1.5mm float of the original. I would also try the mech without that pulley.

Unfortuantely the 'clicks' on the shifter aren't very well defined at all :cry:

They don't slip but they're not very discernible, unlike my SJS and Pauls Dura Ace thumbies. I'm not sure about stripping and cleaning them though... :?

I wouldnt strip them - there is a teeny bearing that if it gets lost - thats it.

If I remember these correctly, under the top cap is a reverse thread nut that should tighten things up

I'll give tightening them up a go and see if it makes any difference...

...the alloy jockey wheel does still have the float BTW.

As always, LGF was spot on re the float issue on the jockey wheel, and I was totally wrong! :oops:

No float at all; just fitted a 3dv lower jockey wheel to the XT mech for SWMBO's Stumpy, but this time left the OEM fittment upper jockey wheel in place to avoid a repeat of this fault...
