Shimano used bum grease on this shifter!
Shimano has applied some kind of grease that has gummy waxy qualities to this shifter. I have ordered two of these clamp style M8000 shifters. Both shifters (rear) stopped working almost immediately after installation. The grease used causes the shifting internals to bind-up.

The I-spec II design uses a different grease and doesn't have the same issues described above.

Superb
Upgraded to this from older XT. Also did the cassette and derailleur. Everything works flawlessly. Pretty easy to install with some basic tools. My repair skills are novice at best too. Coolest feature is the smaller trigger which if pressed forward two clicks, the bike up shifts twice(faster speed). Find myself using it a lot.

PROS: Lightweight, Attractive Design, Easy To Install

Great product
I use this on the rear mech and love the visual indicator when bombing downhill followed by an uphill allowing one to quickly view what gear one is in verses a Oh No! Lol excellent shifting.

Smooth Shifting Action
This shifter works perfectly with the XT rear derailleur and 11-42 cassette. The shifting is smooth and light. I hate the clunky feeling of SRAM, so I was very happy when Shimano finally put this on the market.

PROS: Easy To Install, Attractive Design

CONS: Limited Compatibility

Awesome!
Very clean shifting. I was an XTR guy but with the high prices and.minimal weight loss seems I couldn't justify it. I'm extremely pleased with these.

Nice shifter that integrates well with Shimano brake levers
Matches perfectly with Shimano brake levers and can even leave the shifter indicator with the brakes inboard unlike previous versions.

Solid piece and easy to install.
Solid piece and easy to install. First ride was a 30 mile Mtb ride on sloppy trails and it held its own.

Best shifter made!
Simply put you can't by a better shifter for your bike. I love how even the smallest of deatails are covered on this. Even the mounting on he bar has been taken into consideration.

Does this come with the cover to remove the display? There's a review that says no and one that says yes only two weeks apart from each other.

Is this right hand?
BW on Apr 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The right / rear shifter is on the right side. Front shifter is on the left side.
Do I need to purchase the OT-SP41 cable separately or is it included with this shifter?
Jared S on Apr 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: you need purchase separately,SP41, the shifter included only the inner cable
Is this shifter compatible with road-style 11-spd rear derailleurs, specifically Ultegra? Looking for a suitable shifter with indicator for flat bar use.
Deadlaker on Oct 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I think that you would be better off either using a mountain bike rear
derailleur or using a road shifter like the Shimano Alfline:

Does a 11 speed shifter mount on a sl-m785 brake?
JimDtheCaptain on May 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They are different I-spec standards, so no. You will have to mate them with the 7000, 8000 or ,9000 series brakes which carry the I-spec II standard. The 785's were I-Spec B, if memory serves correctly. Also, it looks like Jenson does not carry the I-Spec shifters at the moment.
Does this shifter come with a standard bar mount option or is it i-spec only?
philneu on May 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Bar mount only! You have to specifically order the I-Spec version for brake lever mounting.
this is I-Spec B right
peter7ee on Apr 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, the M8000 components do not come in an I-Spec B option. This is the standard bar mount. There are M8000 I-Spec II shifters available, but those are not compatible with I-Spec B.
Hello!. Is this shifter a clamp on style or a i-spec II type?
dbrandani on Apr 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Clamp.
Is this shifter bar mount? I'm considering upgrading my 2014 Giant Trance 27.5 2 with 2x10 Shimano Deore shifters to a 1x11 Shimano SL M8000 kit. I'm leaving the Shimano M505 Brake Leversas is (they are bar mount as well). So will this work with what I have??

Thanks
