    Paul Thumbie / Dura-Ace bar end shifter question

    Can anyone help me?
    I'm struggling to fit some used Dura-Ace 9 speed bar end shifters to a set of Paul Thumbies.
    I suspect the lever boss cover (part number 643 4300) has been altered, which is preventing the cable lining up properly with the fitting in the thumbie mount.
    Can anyone tell me exactly how thick the standard cover is?
    Before I order a new pair!
    Thanks.

    Aloha,

    Not sure of the problem you are having, I guess specifically what do you mean by not fitting. Is it possible the shifter is not indexing correctly on the mount? Is it possible you don't have the right shift-adapter? Can you take some pictures to help show the problem?

    Sorry, wish I could be more helpful. I've had much success using the Paul's for many years on multiple bikes.

    It's this part here, mine appears to have been sanded down, so it's too thin to allow a smooth cable run from the shifter into the thumbie, the cable is just not quite in line.
