    No info online, nor do the Shimano manuals say anything. They are supposed to have 1cm of reach adjustment. Anyone know how to do this?

    6600 and 6700 require shims that fit on the lever housing. They might still be available at your local shop. 6800 uses and adjustment screw that's located at the top of the lever under the rubber hood. Flip the hood back from the nose, and there it is! Some use a small flat bladed screwdriver, others use a 3mm allen wrench.

    Ok thanks. On my new bike I assumed I had the 6800, but it turns out they came with the 6700 series.

    The instructions say everything you need to know: Last step of the lever installation.

    From the STI parts diagram: Item 14 has the options of the part numbers for different options for the Pad Spacer reach adjustment widget:
