Shimano shifter internals package

Postby Bnej » Thu Apr 24, 2008 7:57 pm

I couldn't find the original thread, so I'll start a new one.

One of my local group wrecked a pawl/ratchet part of the mechanism on a new 105 shifter. The shifter wasn't repairable, but now you can get little internals modules for about $60 that replace everything in an STI shifter except for the hoods and lever - i.e, all the fine mechanicals.

Anyway these are apparently quite easy to install and it's considerably cheaper than a new set of STI shifters.

Do you know if it is possible to buy these for a 1998 RSX eight speed, or whether it is possible to turn these in to a ten speed?

I don't know, I suspect not. You'd have to ask Shimano, I don't know how much the internals have changed over the years but I doubt they'd be mounted in the shifter the same way.
