Has anybody managed to wear off an X0 twist shifter?
My drivetrain's shifting accuracy has become very sketchy on the tallest 3-4 cogs over the last months: when I upshift the shifter makes the 'click' but tension is too low. I have to pull the shifter slightly beyond the click to make the tension correct (and it stays there, the shifter doesn't come back to the click position).
I can of course increase tension with the barrel adjuster, but then it's too high for the larger cogs.
I already replaced the der hanger, cable/housing (full length)/ferrules but it made no difference. This and the fact that that the problem appeared gradually over time makes me think that the ratcheting mechanism in the shifter may be worn. Not much else to replace after all...
The shifter has seen quite a bit of use -5 years on my only mtb- and I admit I've completely slacked off on maintenance, I never did anything at all on it except replacing the cable (no oil, grease or anything).
What do you say? Is this diagnosis plausible?
