Of course one should do all the usual confirmations of cable friction (minimal), cable tension (actually casing length) and der alignment first. This hasn't been said and I won't assume that these steps have been done. Andy
Yes it seems to skip a detent and double shift, and lever seems to have greater movement on double shifts.
It lines up fine on the gears it selects. New setup so no bent hangers etc. Lower gearing for the Vaya.
Sounds like Shimano intends these to be non serviceable? Nice business model.
