Ultegra 11 speed right hand shifter
#1
My 11 speed has become an 8 speed. Thought maybe cable slipped/stretched/frayed. Nope. Limit screws are right. It wont hit the final 3 smaller gears. Physically pulled the cable and it would track down the final 3. Tightened the cable anchor. Got it to shift to the bottom but woudnt shift to the top three gears. Removed the cable from the anchor and pulled it. Started working the shifter while holding tension on the cable. Im only getting 8 detents from the shifter.

What happened to my shifter?

Thanks for the help in advance

possibly the pawls are gummy and dirty. you can try and spray some lube to free it up. or worst case take it apart and clean/lube and reassemble. It is a time consuming rather tough to do job for the first time.

Are your cable sheaths and cable stops adjusted properly?

Pulled the hoods back and found the cause. Frayed cable. Simple replacement. Should of looked. Bike is fairly new but I have put on 2500miles on it and I shift like a rabbit.

Thanks
