    Hi. I'm new to this forum. I have a question about replacing a Shimano Ultegra ST6501 shifter. I took the right one apart without knowing what I was doing and I cant get it back together. The bike is 12-13 years old. What Shimano shifter would be the right one to replace the ST6501?

    FYI. You can replace your 6500 shifter with another 6500 series Shimano shifter OR any other 9-speed Shimano Road shifter which suits your fancy (Dura Ace, 105, Tiagra, etc.) ...

    • in theory (THAT means that I have not tried it), you can use a pair of 10-speed Shimano shifters and then use the alternate rear derailleur cable position at 9 o'clock ...
    • OR, you can mate a pair of Campagnolo shifters to our drivtrain ...

    Or you could convince a bike shop to break up a pair of new Sora 9-speed levers, or you could buy the pair and save the other one for when the other Ultegra lever craps out.
