Does the kit include the SL Guide
The Shimano tech manual suggests changes the SL guide when changing the gear inner cable. The kits say it contains the end caps but does it contain the SL guide to be inserted in the shifter? (see http://si.shimano.com/php/download.php?file=pdf/dm/DM-ST0002-04-ENG.pdf)
Answering my own question, no its not included but contrary to the answer from Wiggle, the SL guide is in the old 10 gear 105 shifter.
In fact the kit doesn't even have enough ferrules in it, only 5 which means if you have barrel adjusters for on ride adjusting you need to by more. Also Shimano suggest ferrules with tongues should be used at the shifter end and these are not included.
Wont bother with this product again.
