Hi - I have an 8 spd XTR STI RH unit that seems to have stripped something inside - when clicking through the gears it only seems to have about 5 clicks and won't make the end of the range. Is it possible to service/repair these units, what parts would I need, are there any web instructions, and as a last resort would the M951 barend shift upgrades posted in the 8spd XTR post below fit and solve the problem?

Thanks,

Ian

DO NOT open them up! ( Pandora's box )
Sounds like the old chesnut of a problem. Disconnect the cable at the deraillieur.Unscrew the gear indicator window ( watch where you put the screws ) and ( whilst pulling on the gear cable by hand ) click it into 8th gear. Tilt the gear indicator to the left ( so the orange arrow falls to the " H " and then screw back on. Tell me how you get on

Thanks - I'll give it a go (they're off the bike at the moment anyway) - if not I might get one of those upgrade kits!
