I've done some searching here but didn't turn up any thing useful.
So-- I have a left-side 105 (5510, double) STI lever that's developed some additional play. I want to disassemble it and see if perhaps i can tighten something up.
I see from Shimano's downloadable exploded-view diagram and repair parts list that i will be able to get the lever down to a useful level of disassembly.
I'd like to know if any of you have disassembled road STI levers and what "gotchas" you encountered. Any other advice is welcome.
Oh, and are the two "special tools" really necessary? If you have 'em, where did you get 'em?
Thanks for your help.
