105 STI lever torqued to outboard side
Last week i managed to torque an 105 STI lever during a minor crash into mud/dirt. The lever itself shows no overt signs of damage and still functions properly.
I can grab it and rotate the lever a few degrees outboard. Grasping the top of the lever (where the shift cable exits inboard) i can rotate the lever back to its normal position.
So now there's a few degrees of play in the lever. I haven't disassembled the lever at all and i can't see anything that appears to be broken inside (by depressing the lever towards the handlebar).
This is my first experience with STI levers (i'm so old-skool).
Can anyone here clue me in as to what's happened?
