    campy shifter conversion/upgrade

    Is it possable to replace the bushings in 2002 Veloce shifters w/ ballbearing units used in chorus/record units?

    I have replaced springs & index cogs before, but I'm not sure on compatablity problems & if its worth the $$$.

    Thanks for any input

    I don't think so

    I've got both Chorus and Veloce shifters and worked on both. I'm working on my memory here, but if I remember right the OD of the bushing in the Veloce is a lot smaller that the OD of the bearing in the Chorus. You could go to the Campy site and look at the exploded parts diagrams to see if the housing part numbers are different between the Chorus and the Veloce. If they are different chances are the bearing will not fit in the Veloce housing. Most of the springs, index cogs etc. are interchangeable. Campy is pretty good at only changing part numbers on the parts only if there really is a difference. You will see that many of the parts are used in all models of shifters.
