Only getting 8 out of my 9 spd bar-cons?(5 posts)

Only getting 8 out of my 9 spd bar-cons?Capital Crescent

Bar-cons (labels on shifter and instructions) state they are compatible with 8 or 9 speed, but I can only get 8 in either friction or index mode. Do I have them installed incorrectly? Any advice? Thanks.

There are 8 speed bar-cons and then there are 9 speed bar-cons. What brand do you have ??????

Actually, shimano 9 speed barcons work with a shimano 8 speed cassette when used with a pre 9 speed DA RD.

Do you have your derailleur limit screws adjusted properly? Do properly put on the cable? There shouldn't be any slack on the small cog.

Yeah, and with the shifter installed,push the right lever all the way down toward the ground,against the stop before ataching the cable to the derailer,with slack removed.
