    Stripped I-Spec threads on XT brake body

    In a crash yesterday I had my shifter ripped off the brake mount. When I went to remount it I found the threads on the brake side were stripped out and I could not remount my shifter.
    I know I could buy a shifter mount but I like the clean cockpit look the I-Spec provides. Anyone know if I can fix the housing or buy a new housing? Any other solutions I haven't thought of?

    Depends exactly which thread was stripped.
    In an I-Spec system the shifter bracket mounts to the brake by means of a barrel nut and bolt - part 6 on the diagram below. There's no thread in the brake lever assembly to strip, just a hole for the nut to go through. If its the thread on the barrel nut and/or bolt that's stripped, you can buy replacements as a spare part from Shimano - part #Y6UV98090.
    If its the bolt that attaches the shifter bracket to the shifter body that's stripped - part 4 on diagram below, then that also can be ordered separately from Shimano part #Y6T798050, or pick up any M5 thread bolt from a hardware store and cut to length.
    If its the thread inside the shifter body that this bolt screws into that's stripped then you're stuffed, as this is an integral part of the shifter mechanism.
