Slow return of shift lever on DA7900

Road Cycling ďIt is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

Slow return of shift lever on DA7900

Hi all,

Iím having a few issues with my RD/gear lever on my DA7900 setup.
On certain shift combinations, the return of the lever to its neutral position is sluggish and rather slow; like the spring effect is rather attenuated.

The shift cableís movement through its pattern is free, so no problem there. Any idea how I could troubleshoot this problem?

The FD/shifter works perfectly.

Thanks a lot.

maybe a shot of wd 40, into its works to loosen things up but, Is it cold where you are? Might be a contributing factor. Also check the cable routing, especially under the BB make sure things are where they are supposed to be, and that there isnt more drag on the cable than there is supposed to be. If you have a waranty , use it I say.
