Need advice for Shimano ST-7900 nameplate replacement

Please describe the procedure for replacing the left hand name plate B on the Shimano ST-7900 Dual Control Levers. Is it simply removing the screws or do you have to take the entire shift/brake mechanism apart?

Thanks!

Don't know if you have an exploded view diagram of the levers . If not you can download from http://techdocs.shimano.com/techdocs/index.jsp

In the road bike drop down list select Dura-Ace, go down to ST-7900 and select document EV-ST-7900-2874. I don't advise you to take mech apart unless you have special tools and bags of experience handling complex mechs. However you will see that name plates are held by single screw which should be no problem.

Exploded view of parts diagram for shimano tourney st-ef40 shifters for re-assembly?

My shimano ultegra left shifter is super stiff/hard to push in; what is going on?


Try flushing out the shifter(s) with WD-40, use plenty. The next step will be replacing the shift cables and cable housings.
  • Take the bicycle in an area free of cars and obstacles, such as an open parking lot. Concentration is required when learning to use Ultegra shifters or any other type of bicycle shifter.
  • 2 Mount the bicycle and rest both hands on the proper Ultegra hand control. The left-hand control operates the front derailleur. The right-hand control operates the rear derailleur.
  • 3 Start pedaling, smoothly and evenly. While pedaling is crucial to propelling the bicycle forward, it is also necessary when shifting the derailleur. Pedaling forces the chain to rotate. The chain must rotate before it can transfer to another gear.
  • 4 Push the outside right Shimano Ultegra lever in toward the bicycle. The rear derailleur will shift the chain to a smaller rear gear.
  • 5 Push the inside right Shimano Ultegra lever in toward the bicycle. The rear derailleur will shift the chain to a larger rear gear.
Rear Ultegra Derailleur Control
  • 1 Push the outside left Shimano Ultegra lever in toward the bicycle. The front derailleur will shift the chain to larger front gear.
  • 2 Push the inside left Shimano Ultegra lever in toward the bicycle. The front derailleur will shift the chain to a smaller front gear.
  • 3 Use the front and rear Ultregra hand controls interchangeably. For small changes in gearing, using the rear control. For larger changes, choose the front control. A smaller gear causes the bicycle to travel a shorter distance per pedal stroke but also requires less energy to use. A larger gear requires greater effort but in turn causes the bicycle to travel farther per pedal stroke.

Hi! is there any replacement for shimano ST-3300, 8 speed, right hand STI lever?? many thanks


There's a used pair on an eBay auction right now ending 6d 09h (Sep 21, 201101:52:54 PDT) that you might be able to snag for cheaper than a separate right lever. Wait til the last 10 seconds and bid ONCE. Leave time to confrm the bid.

There are other models, too.

My $.02: I'd take the opportunity to switch to Campi Ergo (also available on eBay). The brake lever is ONLY a brake lever so you don't have to tip toe around it when shifting and ALL CABLES are hidden.

I have an Ultegra RD6600 and CS5600 (12/25T) on my new Look bike. I'd like to put a CS6700 11/28T on it for better gearing for the steep climbs around here. Apparently the CS6700 11/28T required the...


Derailleurs -

The RD6600 will only handle a 27T gear so no to 11/28.
The RD6700 will handle the 28T gear so yes to 11/28

Shiftlever -

The ST6600 will work fine with the RD6700.
The ST7900 should only be used with other 7900 products (Dura-ace for Dura-ace) it will work but not as nice.

There is no need to change your shiftlevers.

The ST7900 is almost fully compatible, in that any Shimano Derailleur will work with any Shimano Shift lever, However the ST7900 has a slightly different shifting pattern and the shift levers should only be used with other 7900 products to get the best performance.

Side note - If you are using standard cranks now, you could keep your shifting in tact and change your cranks to compacts and get lower gear ratios than moving to the 28T for a similar price to Rear derailleur/ cassette and chain plus labor. This is a common change in my shop.
