I agree with the Gonzo on all points.

A couple details: when assembling the shifters on your handlebars, make sure the indexing disk is in the correct position. It will "fit" four ways, but it will only work in one. If it's out of position, you can't get the shifters to index in all gears.

Also, make sure the center screw on the shifter is very tight. If it loosens, the index/friction switch can move to an in-between position and possibly break the shifter.
