    shifter issues

    I have a twist shifter which seems to have gone bad during the year. It shifts forward at the slightest touch. There is practically no resistance. Is there anyway to perhaps tighten it so that it doesn't shift forward constantly, or do I have to replace the entire shifter?

    Thanks.

    It's an SRAM MX Pro grip shifter.
