Campy 10 Speed Bar-End Instruction pdf

Is there a site I can download the instruction sheet for Campy 10 speed bar-end shifters? I did not see any on the Campagnolo site.

I've never dealt with these before and got a used pair off ebay. The indexed shifter feels kind of funky and I do not think it is asembled correctly. I'd like to see an exploded view drawing to check.

Otis: Are you holding the shifter in your hand and working it? If so you might want to mount it into a handlebar or a vise and try it. It will probably feel a lot different/smoother-working.

+1

Bar end shifters feel terrible if they're not mounted in a bar. What exactly are they doing wrong? I can't imagine them being much different than other bar ends.

I was just shifting it while holding it but the detents did not feel right, like they were binding. I'll try putting it in a bar and see what it feels like. Thanks.

Yep, that's how they feel off the bike. Don't worry, it's normal.
