If your 3-speed Nexus is not shifting correctly, you are at the right place, we will try to get it adjusted.
The first thing you want to do is shift the shifter up or down on the handlebar and put it into second gear, the middle gear. You need two tools: an open-end 10 mm wrench and you may also need a pair of pliers.
The second thing you do is loosen the lock nut right up against the body of the shifter. Loosen that and it allows the adjustment knob to be free. Sometimes you will need a wrench to move it. You will see there are two lines in the window of the shifter and there is a piece inside that has a little yellow indicator. You want to line that yellow between the two lines with the adjustment knob. When you get the yellow right between the two lines, go ahead and put the lock nut right up against the body of the shifter, and tighten it with the 10 mm wrench, so that adjustment stays nice and firm.
If you got it adjusted go for a ride, it should shift and ride just fine.
It will click and make noise while riding that does not mean it's broken which means it is working.
