alright well i got the cable through finally, and as i was putting the teeth inside the shifter into there position i had to hold both sides and tighten down that allen-key and i guess i just tightened it a bit to much. "snap" was all i heard and i thought it stripped, but the bolt snapped right in half, now i'm not to sure how to replace that bolt any one ever have experience with this?
Were you trying to insert the cable without the shifter in the highest gear position? Cable can only be inserted all the way with the shifter in the highest gear position (9th gear, all the index finger clicks maxed out). You can obtain a rebuild kit with the screw you snapped from your local shop (they're available form most distributors).
Yea i did open the bottom not knowing what i was doing, but i snapped that bolt and im really poed and im hoping that i can get a bolt for it and not have to buy a brand new shifter. Also i am a different person that "pinkshirt" he's my buddy that just sold me his dh bike.
Yes, i tried most of these techniques of getting it thought, i think it was just so hard because it was my first time doing any major work on shifters. But i am going to call up a few shops and see if they can order me the part. Thank you everyone for your help
while you guys are solving X.0 problems, my 2006 X.0 rear derailleur somehow decided to spit out the plastic insert and limit screw. I see the limit screw on the parts breakdown but not the insert. LBS has been useless.
