I got my mitts on a set of XTR M950 STI's. They were caked in cack and didnt shift but I cleaned them up and they seem to work OK. But there is a problem - each side is missing one of the teeny little screws that attaches the gear indicator window to the top.

I have had a rummage around the spares box and thought I had it cracked, an old XT 739 shifter with a snapped off window and the screws still in place. But no, they are a couple of mm too shorter and don't engage the thread. Damn you Shimano!

Anyone got any spares, a dead shifter than can be pillaged, or info on where I can get hold of said parts?

You could try Model fixings, slightly old fashioned web site and a little tricky to navigate but they’ve got every small screw I’ve ever needed.

good call. worth a look. Trouble is I'm not sure what I'm looking for!
think its time to get the calipers out and measure the head diameter and thread length

I might have some, I stripped a set of M739/740 sti's a while back and I'm sure I have some screws left over

Nice one. The 739 I have was the correct head size but the thread was a bit shorter, maybe a later version might be where to look. I'd appreciate you checking. I'll see if I can get some measuring done at the weekend
