Technical FAQ: Rebuilding Dura-Ace shifters

Can Dura-Ace shifters be rebuilt?

Don't miss a moment from Paris-Roubaix and Unbound Gravel, to the Giro d’Italia, Tour de France, Vuelta a España, and everything in between when you join Outside+.

Dear Lennard,
Are Dura-Ace ST-7700 shifters able to be rebuilt? My rear shifter has difficulty up-shifting. It takes sometimes as many as 10 shifts to move one gear. As per Shimano’s advice, I removed the shifter, soaked it in degreaser for three hours, air dried, and lubed the insides with TriFlow by inserting a tube into the shifter. It still doesn’t work.

Dear Aaron,
No, they cannot be rebuilt.
