General Safety Information
• Use neutral detergent to clean the chain. Do not use alkali-based or acid based detergent such as rust cleaners as it
may result in damage and/or failure of the chain.
• Use the reinforced connecting pin only for connecting the narrow type of chain.
• There are two different types of reinforced connecting pins available. Be sure to check the table below before
selecting which pin to use. If connecting pins other than reinforced connecting pins are used, or if a reinforced
connecting pin or tool which is not suitable for the type of chain is used, sufficient connection force may not be
obtained, which could cause the chain to break or fall off.

• The reinforced connecting pins cannot be used with the UG chain, otherwise the connections will not move properly
and noise will occur.
• Apply grease to the thread section of the bottom bracket and to the inside thread of the adapter before installing the
bottom bracket.
• In addition, if pedaling performance does not feel normal, check this once more.
• Check that there is no looseness in any joints or connections before riding the bicycle. (BB-FC, FC-PD)
• Do not wash the bottom bracket with high-pressure jets of water.
• If you feel any looseness in the bottom bracket axle, the bottom bracket should be replaced.
• If gear shifting operations do not feel smooth, wash the derailleur and lubricate all moving parts.
• If the amount of looseness in the links is so great that adjustment is not possible, you should replace the derailleur.
• You should periodically wash the chainrings in a neutral detergent and then lubricate them again. In addition, cleaning
the chain with neutral detergent and lubricating it can be a effective way of extending the useful life of the chainrings
and the chain.
• If the chain keeps coming off the chainrings during use, replace the chainrings and the chain.
• Use an outer casing which still has some length to spare even when the handlebars are turned all the way to both
sides. Furthermore, check that the shifting lever does not touch the bicycle frame when the handlebars are turned all
the way.
• Grease the inner cable and the inside of the outer casing before use to ensure that they slide properly.
• Operation of the levers related to gear shifting should be made only when the front chainwheel is turning.
• For smooth operation, use the specified outer casing and bottom bracket cable guide.
• To ensure the best performance, be sure to use only the specified type of chain. The wide type chain cannot be used.
• For maximum performance we highly recommend Shimano lubricants and maintenance products.
• Parts are not guaranteed against natural wear or deterioration resulting from normal use.
• For any questions regarding methods of installation, adjustment, maintenance or operation, please contact a
professional bicycle dealer.
Note:
Pass the cable through
as shown in the
illustration.

• If it is necessary to adjust the length of the chain due to a change in the number of
sprocket teeth, make the cut at some other place than the place where the chain has
been joined using a reinforced connecting pin or an end pin. The chain will be
damaged if it is cut at a place where it has been joined with a reinforced connecting
pin or an end pin.

• Be careful not to let the cuffs of your clothes get caught in the chain while riding,
otherwise you may fall off the bicycle.
• Check that the tension of the chain is correct and that the chain is not damaged. If the tension is too weak or the chain
is damaged, the chain should be replaced. If this is not done, the chain may break and cause serious injury.
• Check that there are no cracks in the crank arms before riding the bicycle. If there are any cracks, the crank arm may
break and you may fall off the bicycle.
• Obtain and read the service instructions carefully prior to installing the parts. Loose, worn or damaged parts may
cause the bicycle to fall over and serious injury may occur as a result. We strongly recommend only using genuine
Shimano replacement parts.
• Obtain and read the service instructions carefully prior to installing the parts. If adjustments are not carried out
correctly, the chain may come off and this may cause you to fall off the bicycle which could result in serious injury.
• Read these Technical Service Instructions carefully, and keep them in a safe place for later reference.

Gear shifting operation
Both lever (A) and lever (B) always return to the initial position when they are released after shifting.
When operating one of the levers, always be sure to turn the crank arm at the same time.
Do not operate lever (A) and lever (B) together.
If you cannot shift from a large chainring to a smaller chainring, operate lever (A).
