I've got the Dura Ace bar end shifters on my CX bike. I'm trying to replace the shift cable for the rear D. I cannot get the crimped stop end out of the shifter. It has been ridden in the elements and there is corrosion/gunk on the shift lever. Despite cleaning and dousing with penetrating oil the crimped end will not budge out of the shifter. My next step was to try and drill a hole down the middle of the crimp.
Any other suggestions before I take a drill to my shifter? Help, I want to ride tomorrow!
