I've got the X.0 9 speed grip shifters which I have had for quite a few years. The rubber has been wearing, but this weekend in the heat of 95-100 degrees, they pretty much have turned to a sticky putty feeling and started disintegrating. So I guess it's time to get some new rubber. I'm also missing the plastic window housing that covers the left shifter indicator (must have fallen off in a race).
I see I can order the rubber grips, but are those plastic windows available anywhere? And does anyone know of a link to some online instructions for changing the grip shifter rubber grips? Is it pretty easy - or is it more on the tedious side of "small motor movement skills required" for the grip switch?
I don't know what the total costs will be for new rubber grips, but it might just be cheaper and easier for me to pick up the less expensive X.7 9 speed shifters as they seem to work just as well for me on another bike.
