Athena 11 speed shifter rattle

Postby pinarellokid » Mon Jan 07, 2013 06:41 am

can anyone help with a little problem im having
my left shifter has become really rattly, looking at it i can see the shifter lever does not line up with the little rubber pad.so it now comes past the pad and this is allowing the shift lever to touch and rattle against the brake lever.
at first i thought i needed new rubber pads but they are not worn they just dont line up and touch like they should.
is there a set screw or something to adjust the stop rest on the shift lever??
starting to bug other riders on my club runs and im now getting stick..
riding along for 40 miles yesterday holding the 2 levers apart soon got tedious

does anyone have a solution, or come across this problem before.

Campag Athena 11 speed from 2010..

I glued a small bit of high density foam between the two levers to stop the rattle. I think it's a fairly common issue.

Yep thats what Ribble recomended. seen as though they are only 1500 miles old and never bent or crashed i cant believe they have moved. i would have thought they just needed resetting back to zero with a grub screw or something.. some much for Campagnolo wearing in....

anyone else got any experience on these shifters.
would a service put the lever back in line with the rubber pad
or new ratchet possibly
dont mind spending a little rather than taping up or glueing patches on them
cheers

Many campagnolo shifters rattle. A rubber band around the brake sort it. Old ones, kind of 2004 and earlier did not rattle

There is no solution... Find the right size rubber band and live with it

How handy are you with a craft knife? I reckon you could fashion a plastic/rubber bumper that pushes into the gap in the back of the brake lever (where the alloy is bent back around) and sticks out a bit further than the existing small one. Maybe out of one of those black plastic bottle corks?
