    GS suggests the skinny series 1.1mm gear wires and in fact
    they do seem smoother.

    Remove the grip. Shift to high gear. Pull out, away from
    the bike, as you shift to low gear and the lever will pop
    off its capstan. There are various gear wire routes through
    the lever for various models so no explicit directions after
    that. Observe the gear wire path well!

    If you're stumped, note the model number on the outside and
    write back.
