Ugh!

I'm taking my comptech short shifter back off and I can't get the blue cap off for the life of me!

Any thoughts?

Thanks,

Nate

I used a wrench to counter-lever the cap. Got an open ended wrench, stuck it right on top of the blue cap, then pushed forward until the cap popped off. :D

Was this when you were putting the comptech on, or taking it off? The comptech piece almost has zero room to work with.

Thanks for the advice, I'm gonna go try it in a few.

Haven't actually tried taking it off yet. My TWM did come with a little tool that you can use to help lever the cap off -- did your comptech come with a similar one?

yeah, but the shaft on the comptech is a lot short than the stock one. There isn't any room for it to fit.
