I was moving these XT (SL-M750) shifters to another bike. They worked great before uninstalling from the old frame. After threading a new cable to the left shifter, I gently applied tension to the cable and shifted to ensure everything worked correctly. It didn't. The shift levers click and move the indicator smoothly, but the cable has not been captured by the internal mechanism.
Thinking something was not well with the left, I tested the right side shifter the same way and got the same result. I have the same shifters on another bike as well, so this is not my first time performing this install. I can't imagine that the pods broke in the five feet from one bike to the next. That said, I'm not immune to user error.
What did I do? What do I try next? Thanks!
