My preferred method is to kick it up and down a bit and see what happens. After a while you get used to it and then, get on another bike, and do the same ;D

 I even tried to set the gears 1 down, 3up. Funny thing it would not work...  Things you do ? ? ?    8)   griff
Ride safely and no pinchmarks on the seat.
