XT M8000 shifter spring [Solved]
#1
Hi,
I messed up the tension spring for one of my MTB's shifters (Shimano Deore XT M8000) and now it's slightly yet noticeably bent on the tip. Is it actually worth spending my time to "straighten" it back and use it again? Or is it better just to get new one? Found some options on Ebay, such as this one, must fit well.

Pics of yours would be nice, and if you had a ebay link to look at it did not show up.

ahhhh, I should have turned on the notifications. I had issues with the phone camera and could not take pics, but I ended up getting new springs. Might take a pic of the old,bent spring in the upcoming days if I will be able to find it + if my camera will be up and running again.
