Sram X7 front/left trigger large paddle jamming
Anybody know what could be reason that large paddle is jamming when pushed forward.
I dissasembled shifter, added new grease put it back together, everyting seems fine when not connected to front delaurier. But when i mount with cable connected to it and try to change gear it just jamming in pushed position.
I had an X7 that jammed up and it was the gear indicator strip that was popping out of the drive gear and wedging between it and the housing. I had installed an XT shifter in it's place when it messed up and while I got the X7 working again on the "bench" test, I ended up selling the bike and gave the guy the shifter so don't know if the jamming happened again. I think the best fix is pull the gear indicator strip out and run without it.
