comment Shimano Sora 9-speed shifters “missing a speed”
@PeteH I wasn't suggesting a skipping chain. I'm suggesting that if the OP is counting 8 clicks and hasn't visually confirmed that the chain skips over a gear that there actually may be nothing wrong at all.

comment Shimano Sora 9-speed shifters “missing a speed”
Are you sure it's missing a gear? Have you actually watched the chain skip over a cog? As @kibbee points out in his answer, a 9 speed setup should only click 8 times from one extreme to the other.
