I had to run to the NAPA parts/tool store for a 60 torx male socket to remove a non-OEM adjustable gear lever that sells on Revzilla for in between 166 to 202 dollars. The tool cost me 10.27 dollars. I installed most of the new gear adjuster on the bench and was surprised how tight the busing that went on the plastic collar. I decided just to throw a light coat of Molykote DX and it slipped together better after doing this.I used the Molykote DX on all friction points after cleaning. The gear shifter has two very small bolts and nuts that are used to adjust the length of the gear lever and one of the nuts had fallen off while I was moving it from the bench to the bike. I was lucky to see it fall on my blanket that I had played underneath the area I was working on the bike. If It would have fallen off in the grass, I doubt if I would have found it. Make sure these bolts / nuts are secure. I did not have to adjust because the position that was set was fine for me. The quality of the parts are very good and the steel lanyard that attaches to the lever and frame is a good idea.
The price at first seemed steep but knowing the quality of Wunderlich parts, I decided to buy. This was probably the 6th product that I have purchased from them. I just installed the brake lever 2 days prior and very happy with that. Keep up the good work Wunderlich!
