Pulling on the shifters but the cable isn't moving Dura Ace 9100

Hey guys, I'm trying to install Dura Ace 9100 groupset on my bike but I'm getting no cable movement from my STI levers?

I'm wondering if theres a trick to where I have to insert the cable to get this to work properly ...

I put it in the lowest gear and pushed the head of the gear cable inwards -- and now it's stuck and the lever wont move. : / Trying to pry it out with a skinny metal anything. ugh

Here's an image showing where and how I'm stuck.


Removed the hoods and the plastic bottom cover. The wire is still stuck. Hrm.

Popped it out with pliers and then I shifted the gears into the right position after words. Took a scary amount of force...

leverage can do that. i can stop my 900lb motorcycle from 70 with just my right hand fingers in a surprisingly short distance.

I didnt know that you had to shift until you could see the wirehole in a specific spot. I stuck it in not knowing this, then shifted, and it got jammed easily.

+1 Have to have the shifter fully "relaxed" before you thread the cable into place.
