Installing SR EPS shifters on my Aerofly bars.. even with the levers cranked down, I can still grab the lever and with a solid push can move it...

Was thinking about just sticking a piece of 400 or 600 grit sandpaper under the contact point between the bar and lever... I think years ago I had to do this with a Campy shifter on an FSA compact bar because they just wouldnt get tight enough... any other ideas?

Anti slip paste and remember to not use more torque on the bolt than you need. Just enough to not slide sideways "too" easily. It's possible to crush/delaminate the carbon there and make the bars useless.
