    replacing gear cable for XTR dual control shifters

    i'm a guy who likes to fix his own bike, but i cannot find out how to shift the derailleur cable on the right hand shifter, i dont want to pull it appart, you shouldnt have to do that anyways... ...right? anyways, could someone please direct me to a site that gives instructions on how or leave your own, pics would be great.. thanks.

    You have to remove the plastic cap from the front of the body to access the cable. Remove the small screw(s) from the bottom side. Not difficult at all. There is an exploded view of the XTR dual control lever on the XTR site - http://xtr.shimano.com/# once here, go to "tech docs" and then choose ST-M965 and you can down load the pdf file for the lever.

    You need to push the top plastic cover outboard
    Push right on the r lever plastic cover, L on the left.
    There are 2 clips that dis-engage with that movement

    Maintenance info doesn't become outdated. I needed this info a few weeks ago and ended up going elsewhere.
    My Porsche is 20 years old, I often access info regarding repair that is much older than 10 years.
    Perhaps you have something productive to add the this maintenance post?

    Lol, no I don't. Btw, are you a member of pelicanparts porsche forum? I was at 9k posts in about 10 years on that place..made lots of great friends! Sold my last porsche a few years ago after having a '74 and later a '90 911 C4. I miss wrenching on the cars now, but at the time I'd just finalized a divorce and my heart was no longer in it at that time.
