    Need Help Removing Dura Ace Brifter

    Hey guys,

    I'm swapping out the handlebars on my bike and cannot for the life of me figure out how to loosen the brifter clamp. Where is the bolt located on this thing? I'm using DA 10 if that helps any.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    -Stephen

    You need to peel back the rubber hood and the bolt is located on the outside of the STI near where it says DuraAce. It's a 4mm allen key I think. Might be a 5mm though. Can't remember off hand but it's one of the two. Someone to confirm?

    The clamp bolts for all of the STI shifters I've worked on are located under the rubber hood on the outside face of the body. Look for a groove that disappears under the rubber. Follow it and there is a bolt that takes a 5 mm hex wrench. Stick the hex wrench in there and loosen the bolt and they come right off.
